I like the high placement of Waiting for the Sun. “Love Street” and “The Unknown Soldier” are awesome.

The moment his voice came in, I got flooded by this sense of comfort. It’s been too long. Can’t wait for this album.

July 17, 2015 on Trouble Knows Me (Future Islands’ Samuel T. Herring & Madlib) – “Trouble Knows Me”

I agree with James Corden — “Ooh La La” by the Faces is definitely one of the best songs of all time.

The way that white guy gave Chance dap at 5:05 was hilarious.

Plus, I really like being able to look through the list at the end of each Album of the Week post and listening to the ones that sound interesting that day on Spotify. I can’t do that if we do the post beforehand :(

July 14, 2015 on Album Of The Week: Jason Isbell Something More Than Free

I really dug that White Reaper EP from last year. I played it for a friend and he just said “they’re not doing anything new,” but I don’t care. They have so much energy, and the hooks are killer.

“Bored in the U.S.A.” was a huge grower for me. The first 3 or 4 times I listened to it, especially before the whole album came out, I wasn’t impressed. It felt too schmaltzy I think. But now, I can’t get enough of it. His melody is so pure and beautiful.

None of those things seemed all that weird. Just sounds like he’s old.

Every time I listen to the Natalie Prass album, I’m more and more impressed. The production is simply as good as it gets, period. The little flourishes of flutes and muted horns are perfect.

June 16, 2015 on Leviathan – Scar Sighted (Profound Lore)

I agree, but I also think “Can’t Deny My Love” is catchy as all hell. That chorus gets me amped.

June 16, 2015 on Leviathan – Scar Sighted (Profound Lore)

I’m satisfied with this. It looks I really need to listen to Surf more. I definitely liked it, but perhaps need to get more into it to appreciate it.

My top six is certain, but everything after that is a toss-up for me:
1. Sufjan Stevens – Carrie & Lowell
2. Father John Misty – I Love You, Honeybear
3. Jamie xx – In Colour
4. Natalie Prass – Natalie Prass
5. Courtney Barnett – Sometimes I Sit and Think…
6. Sleater-Kinney – No Cities to Love

I love how the second Instagram video has the hashtag #dumbfordandsons.

Anyone else think “The Lengths” is absolutely beautiful?

June 12, 2015 on The Black Keys Albums From Worst To Best

Totally with you. “Goodbye Babylon” is killer. I also think “Just Got to Be” has one of the best riffs ever.

People hate Blake on the court, but off it, he’s hilarious.
