This reminds me how good Old was.

Also kinda surprised Raptor Jesus hasn’t been here yet. This is about as true of a clam jam as they come.

August 3, 2015 on Danny Brown + Clams Casino – “Worth It”

I meant I wanted to hear some insane circumstance involving the KGB, the plague, and Alf that barred him from releasing it. “It wasn’t good” is just boring.

I was hoping for a better explanation than “it wasn’t good.”

Hope it leaks some time.

No way, but there were bands that were obviously aping those bands, and doing it pretty well. I don’t think people were really trying to go for the Doors sound.

It seems like a better diss track than Drakes at the outset because it’s more aggressive, but lyrically it’s pretty subpar. I guess rap beefs just ain’t what they used to be (RIP Jay-Z/Nas beef!)

July 31, 2015 on Meek Mill Finally Delivers Drake Diss Track “Wanna Know”

Man, what happened. His new stuff is sounding really generic and lame.
Innanetape And Down On My Luck were so, so, so promising.

I’m not okay with this article. What Rahm did was extreme, but no one should be defending Keef. I used to tutor on the south side and Keef was nothing if not the shittiest of influences. Kids really looked up to him because he made it big from a bad area and while he was still young, getting a co-sign from a local hero like Kanye. He whole heartedly condoned violence, got a child pregnant (I don’t care if he was under 18, she was too young), and showed no care for how his actions affected the community or anything his affiliates would do. At a time when other young rappers like Chance were pushing against the violence in Chicago, he continued to drag it down without remorse.

While I respect the idea of raising money for the child that died in the hit and run, he has yet to show any self awareness that would lead me to believe he’s turned a new leaf.

I’m sure you were trying to be funny in saying you would vote for him, but for someone who often uses this site to promote progressive causes you really come across like the ignorant jerks you often tell off.

July 30, 2015 on Chief Keef: “Fuck The Mayor With A Sandpaper Dick!”

I never got the Doors hate. All the other big bands were just as up their own asses as Morrison was. At the very least they had a unique sound compared to other big bands like the Who, Beatles, Cream, or Stones. No other band could commit to how dark their psychedelic sound was and their debut still astounds me how they carry that tone through opposing types of songs like Break On Through, Crystal Ship, and The End. It really comes across as the perfect representation of the bleak, dark, come down of the 60’s.

Bonus points because I put The Doors into Pandora when I was like 14 and The Zombies came on. And my life would not be the same without Oddessey and Oracle.

You guys… I like the last Deadmouse album. Great for long drives. Shitty comeback though.

This is much better than Charged Up but still not great. I’m hoping Drake will just drop a new diss track every few days and it culminates in a whole mixtape.

July 29, 2015 on Drake – “Back To Back Freestyle”

I was not feeling the song that posted with the interview and I really only listened to this because the name, but damn, this is poppin’!
Why isn’t there more heavily disco oriented stuff? I know there was a little bit of disco production around after Daft Punk’s RAM struck it big, but I don’t want disco inspired by a band inspired by the original stuff. I want some beef-ed up, experimental version of the corny ass dance tunes my parents are ashamed they danced to.

July 27, 2015 on Galantis – “Peanut Butter Jelly” Video

I like the fact that Meek has a diss track ready already….
So the way to win a rap beef is pick someone out, write a diss track about them, but hold it until later, talk shit, and once they respond with a rushed together track, put yours out so you look like hot shit.

July 26, 2015 on Drake – “Charged Up,” “Right Hand,” & “Hotline Bling”

This exact thing happened when there was a free Tyler the Creator concert in Boulder, CO.
I think it’s got less to do with racial unrest than it does with the large, fairly uncontained group of teens and twenty somethings.

July 23, 2015 on Free Future Show Moved After Attracting Too Many Fans, Cops

I can never read to much about this guy. He’s so unremarkable, yet facinatingly so. It’s like hearing about a burn out high school friend who scrapes by on making music and you think “good for him.”

Also Onion Man on Some Other Ones is great.

Okay, unrelated to the music, but mini-album is just not a thing.
There are already singles, EPs, albums, and double albums. We don’t need a ridiculous descriptor like mini-album.

July 23, 2015 on Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique – “Set Me Free”

This was surprisingly good. I really don’t care for Migos (exception being when real drunk at parties) but they actually sounded great rapping over something so scarce.

I remember hearing horror stories from friends about how shifty Craig was back in the day when he was in Dance Gavin Dance. Which was a shame because I loved/still have feelings for that band. But in the end, Chuck Jonny Craig.

Blue Suede is his standout career highlight, but this and a few other Summertime tracks make compelling cases otherwise.

I just got back from that Train wreck movie and (spoiler) there’s a Wilco song, which made me realize I very much needed to listen to Wilco. So perfect timing.

July 16, 2015 on Download Wilco’s Surprise New Album Star Wars

I loved her first album but Golden Echo was a huge disappointment. I think it’s funny you think it could be looked back on as something that should have been influential because I thought its biggest problem was how badly it wanted to be cutting edge but it came across as a neutered version of experimental pop that was already happening. 90’s Music was fascinating though, and her voice is beautiful enough to keep me excited for her next project.
