When I think of pop geniuses I mostly look at bands that are known to consistently write songs with amazing hooks and/or grooves. Looking at you, Spoon and The Strokes.

“Light My Fire” is easily one of my top three songs of the ’60’s, alongside “All Along the Watchtower” and “Heroin.”

July 28, 2015 on Have We Reached Peak Vinyl?

I’m part of that “young people’ group, and for me there’s a couple of reasons that I buy records – the main ones being it’s a good way to support artists, records are very cool/fun collectibles to have, and like meat said earlier, it’s just something to do. Walking into my room and perusing through my vinyl and deciding what to listen to always feels nice.

“Oblivion” and “Genesis” were so perfect that any Visions-style electro pop would probably be welcomed but could probably never match those two songs. Now they won’t be as heavily compared and we’ll be more able to digest this as a standalone album, which I think is a good thing.

This album is going to keep me company while I take a required online counseling session about how my college loans work.

So, basically, thank God for this.

One of them should record a really shitty song and release it under the other one’s name as revenge

Very excited for this. “Afraid of Heights” is criminally underrated and one of my favoritr albums of 2013.

It was very confusing at first – I thought it was someone from a band in a wig and outfit, but turned out to totally be his doctor.

“You Satellite” is my favorite now. It swells up in a very subtle, very beautiful way.

Almost a hitn of a Nine Inch Nails vibe going on here, I like it a lot.

July 17, 2015 on Alice Glass – “Stillbirth”

One of my favorite light movies. Just a joy to watch over and ober again. I think I like it so much because, like Gabriela alluded to, every character kind of breaks out of what’s expected of them, which helps avoid a lot of clichés the genre is susceptible to.
