March 26, 2015 on Scott Weiland Apologizes For Being An Asshole At Fan Meet-And-Greet
In all seriousness, given the time this was recorded, it should sound basically like Afraid of Heights and Here and Nowhere Else smashed together, which is enticing

First three tracks and last five are incredible stretches - though the whole thing is pretty damn great.

March 16, 2015 on Surprise! Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly Is Out Now
Sounds like it suffers from a bit of Hail to the Thief syndrome... i.e. a couple throw -away tracks that break up the flow of the album and make it too lengthy

March 2, 2015 on Carly Rae Jepsen – “I Really Like You”
I think Daisy is just great, my second favorite of theirs. "You Stole," "Gasoline," and the title track are both brilliant in my opinion, and the rest of the record holds up pretty well too. Also, they put on the best live show I've ever seen. Given, I've only been to a small handful of shows, but I liked their one-hour Boston Calling set last May better than I did Arcade Fire's three-hour show this summer, and I LOVE Arcade Fire.

I am really loving Krill's new album. As in, early-AOTY-contender loving it.

I still don't understand the appeal of Rae Srummerd, to be honest. But 2015 still looks fire

1. The War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream 2. Sun Kil Moon - Benji 3. TV on the Radio - Seeds 4. Perfume Genius - Too Bright 5. Ty Segall - Manipulator 6. They Want My Soul - Spoon 7. Ryan Adams - Ryan Adams 8. RTJ2 - Run the Jewels 9. Bleachers - Strange Desire 10. Ariel Pink - pom pom Where's the love for Bleachers here? "I Wanna Get Better" is my SOTY for sure, and the rest of the album holds up as well. I feel like Ryan Adams deserves something too. And Seeds just captivates me every time - can't really justify it other than I love every single song, except for Love Strained, which I only like.
