Oh man Minnesota represent! Allan Kingdom is a super fun/strange listen so I'm pretty pumped to hear him on a Kanye track, especially one that goes as hard as this.

February 25, 2015 on Watch Kanye West Debut “All Day” At The BRIT Awards
Didn't get a chance to listen to this yesterday because of a long work day, but I checked in to see what everyone had to say about it here and was convinced to wake up at 3am just to give it a spin or two (figuratively though 'cause that dang warping). To quote a song title, "Holy Shit." Really wish I could've nabbed some tix to see him perform this on Valentine's Day.

I'm a bit of a Kanye stan but FourFiveSeconds is not good. It's not bad, but just absolutely boring and bland. The Only One was a welcome surprise that rode the strength of its sentiment really well, but this one really only serves as a chance for Rihanna to flex her voice a little and there's nothing else going on.

Oh man Jackson Browne, specifically Doctor My Eyes and These Days were a staple of my early driving days along with some Guess Who and Todd Rundgren.

Pretty perfect list, but I would move Boyhood up a couple for the scene using "I'll Be Around" by Yo La Tengo. Because that song is so good it could make a scene from an Adam Sandler movie watchable.

December 31, 2014 on The 20 Best Soundtrack Moments Of 2014
I make sure to give albums 3 listens and (depending on the type of album) a lyric read-along. I've done 3 listens but no read-alongs so my current opinion isn't conclusive and I be a little over-reaching because it hasn't had time to sit around in my mind for very long, but this may edge past Voodoo. I've spend some serious time with Voodoo and it's such an incredible album, but the structure, tracklisting, and wide sonic range but focused intent of Black Messiah makes it seem so monumental. Obviously it sounds dope too, which helps.

About due for a new Grizzly Bear record? I don't know about you but I'm still spinning Shields pretty regularly. I think they can get another year out of it, but we'd best be getting a new GB record by 2016 for sure. Also, this song is pretty dope. I always wondered by Ed Droste wasn't sampled for electronic music more. His voice seems to fit it.

Oh shit Madlib+Freddie Gibbs, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Iceage also get honorable mentions.

Of the cuff and in no particular order: Mac Demarco - Passing Out Pieces Flying Lotus - Never Catch Me War On Drugs - Red Eyes Twin Peaks - Making Breakfast Spoon - Inside Out Action Bronson - Easy Rider Cymbals Eat Guitars - Jackson Sylvan Esso - Hey Mami Real Estate - April's Song Kitty - Marijuana Wanted to throw in something from Steve Gunn, Ariel Pink, Ex Hex, Tops, Alvvays, or Shintaro Sakamoto but off the top of my head I couldn't think of my favorite songs, just know I've been playing those albums a whole bunch all year.

Just gonna ask this here: I moved a little north of Albany NY this week and was wondering if anyone knows the area and what places to check out for shows. I know NYC isn't that far but I'm likely not going to be able to make it there very often because of work so I'm looking for some local stuff. Any info would be awesome and I'll buy you a beer if we go to the same show.

To be fair, everyone had nothing to say but bad things about Pablo Honey era Radiohead. Beside that, I can't imagine Tears for Fears are really that upset considering they were one of the biggest acts of the 80's. I love Radiohead as much as the next guy, but you sound like the worst kind of Stan.

November 25, 2014 on Watch Tears For Fears Play Their Hits And Cover Radiohead’s “Creep” In A Spotify Landmark Session
I haven't listened to the full album yet, but if the songs they've already put out are any indication this is going to be some top notch shit. I haven't looked at what other albums are officially coming out this week, but I feel like these guys deserve AOTW for Dead White Boy alone.

Damn, that sounds like it's covering a lot more ground than I expected. From what's heard I would gander a couple of the songs are heavily inspired by James Murphy. Didn't know how excited I should be about this (although of course I would listen at some point) but now I'm pretty stoked.

November 24, 2014 on Watch Will Butler’s ADD Trailer For His Solo Album Policy
A little late to the party but: LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Destroyer - Kaputt Girls - Father, Son, Holy Ghost Dirty Projectors - Swing Lo Magellan (vastly underrated. Everyone should listen to it right now) FlyLo - Cosmogramma Mac Demarco - 2 (mostly because it is the purest summer sound. It would pair nicely with a desert island)

November 19, 2014 on Stream Ariel Pink pom pom
I know I'm probably pretty late to the party since there was an article about its release, but I just need the world to know that Azealia Banks' album is pretty great. After all of the dumb shit she's said and what I assumed was dumb posturing because she wouldn't make anything on the level of 212 again, she came through.

November 15, 2014 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
As much as I enjoy this album, and Chaz Bundick in general, I can't bring myself to say it's better than Grouper's new one. Michael is tons of fun, easy to enjoy quickly and jump in and out of without feeling lost, and a great album to put on if you're not in the mood for anything too dense. Ruin is just too subtly powerful to not give AotW to though. It definitely requires isolation to properly listen to it and there's really no stand out moment for me, but as a cohesive whole it's so beautiful in how close it feels.

"Still no word on when Kendrick’s album is coming, but its imminent arrival is one reason to get up in the morning." Damn, that sure is true. All this press and SNL and this video have me thinking it's got to be just around the corner.

Add me to the list. My best friend is also an English major and he chose the major, I kid you not, because Colin Meloy was one. I'm not sure what this means about the Decemberists, but I'm certain it means something.

Finally got around to listening to this stream. This is pretty damn good, and it's got a pretty surprising sound for something executive produced by Kanye. If Kanye's new album is just a dozen tracks like Can't Stop, I will be extremely pleased.
