His self ratings were really spot on, but even a C- Vonnegut book is great.

Miss_merely is right, this is a pretty basic list if you're at all into literature. That said, there's a reason a lot of people love these books. Also Aristophanes is the most fucking overrated of ancient playwrights and Cat's Cradle is the best Vonnegut book.

Rhye and Alvvays need to put out new albums asap because their last ones have been on constant rotation for the the last year plus. Marry Me Archie and The Fall will be getting plays on my iPod for the rest of my life. I wasn't that into the new RAA album; the songs just didn't stick like the first two albums. That said, I will listen to anything their drummer is on. He really elevates that band from solid indie/folk rock to great. He's up there with the drummer of Cloud Nothings.

I've always loved the Mountain Goats but for whatever reason I only ever listened to their full lengths, and I'm just now realizing I have been missing out on some solid stuff. A Winged Victory For the Sullen is getting a download on name alone.

I was excited to go there tonight but Brandon Flowers had to go and cancel his damn tour.

Bonus points if anyone can rattle off some good Virginia Beach area bands and venues.

Hey everybody! This might be a little late into SUD but I'm about to go away for many months and I was hoping for some really obscure/unknown music to download before I leave civilization (and more importantly S'gum) behind. I've been around the block enough to know most of the must hear indie stuff so I'm hoping for some personal obsessions or regional/local favorites. And yes Bloc, I have all of Belle & Sebastion and the Wrens' music already.

Part of me didn't want to listen to this out of fear it was just a goofy fuck around session over basic beats and not good, but it ended up being both! Amen is the best freestyled sing-songy 9 minute hip hop track I've ever heard hands down.

August 11, 2015 on Album Of The Week: Lil B & Chance The Rapper Free (Based Freestyles Mixtape)
Holy moly freaking sheesh, a Joanna Newsom album recorded by Steve Albini!!! How has noone commented on how incredible this pairing could be? Her typical sound seems completely out of Albini's wheelhouse and could lead to some really interesting stuff. Also this song sounds more like Fiona Apple than she normally does, but this is in no way a bad thing.

Oh shit, glad to see someone else is jamming that new White Reaper album because it is such a garage rock treat! I came to NYC for one night just to catch them with Twin Peaks a few months back and they did not disappoint. Pre-ordered the album as soon as I got in a cab.

As a MN native this song is played at literally ever summer get together I've been to for years and it never gets old. Props to Tom for giving props to Lifter Puller.

Ooh La La is one of the greatest songs of all time (and the album is incredible to boot). Plus, Stay With Me is a great karaoke song.

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.

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!)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
