I was already getting stupid amounts of hyped, and then you compared it to fucking Spirit of Eden, and now I'm dead.

Its funny, the rappers who get screwed over by labels tend to be the hardened streetwise types, while Chance the softy over here got half a mil from Apple without signing.

There's a direct relationship between how far down 66 you go and how intense people get about Jesus. By the time you get to Front Royal (my hometown) you get the people protesting tarot reading shops because Satan

The Cucc! What's he up to these days? Probably waking up in a cold sweat every night remembering there are gays in college not being discriminated against. And I can attest to there being pockets of intense WASP style religion in Fairfax.

And now I have visions of Father John Misty covering "Let The Eagle Soar"

Real Estate is musical comfort food. I know what I'm getting, I like what I'm getting, and I've seen them four times so I guess they're my jam band

I mean there's no way he doesn't show up during Avalanches for "Frankie Sinatra" right?

They've been doing these classics reviews for a while, and I actually appreciated some of them, though why they would bother reviewing Blood Sugar Sex Magic for a classics feature if they're just gonna slap a 7 on it and shut is beyond me. But yeah this is some pretty vulgar " we are hip to the popular musix" shit

This seems like the right place to bitch about this, any of y'all see the headline on The Other Site: "Pitchfork to Publicly Congratulate Themselves For Being So Woke By Bequeathing Biggie With 10s On All His Releases To Commenorate Him Beig Murdered"? How bold of them

I've actually grown more fond of it through the years. The lyrics get a bit maudlin here and there but the songwriting is still on point. "The Plains/Bitter Dancer" with the transition from the ominous first half to the uplift in the second half, that's a damn fine song.

This is a great write up, also it's the second article I've read today that mentions the specter of utter post-college failure, and the wolves are at Old Gonzo's door.

"Yeah man, played some bongo on "Kokomo", then Mike hooked me up with Billy. We were celebratin In the keys in 89 and Billy invited me up to the island, and I ended up getting in on some of that sweet River of Dreams money playing percussion on the sesh. Crazy times man."

I know you guys aren't a hive mind and that's part of why I love ya, but going from all the coverage of the new Iron Reagan to "fMunicipal Waste and Iron Reagan, which frankly blows in comparison" induces a bit of whiplash, and Aaron you've probably been banned from half the scuzzy basements in Richmond (oh no how will you ever survive). And speaking of whiplash I had the pleasure of seeing Alcest and The Body recently, and it was one of those peanut butter and chocolate moments. Or more like The Body saturation bombed by brain into nothingness, then Alcest built a cathedral on the crater.

My mid late 2000s big four was always Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors, Animal Collective (all three of whom put out landmark albums in 2009), and Deerhunter who put out classics in 2008 and 2010. There were other awesome bands operating at the time like LCD and VW, but those four always seemed in a group to me.

I kinda dig it though. I mean the movie doesn't sound like my (or most people's) thing, but I'm all for following one's muse. FlyLo apparently got into guro horror while making You're Dead so this does seem like a logical continuation, and it's not like it's interfering with his musical career

When there's nothing left to burn you have to set yourself on fire. And then party.
