Et tu, Kendrick?

This is actually quite a lot better than I expected. Cautiously optimistic about the album now.

Living proof, that sometimes friends are mean.

No idea why, but I would just ignore Ian Cohen. He’s less a music critic and more of a hatchet man for when they want to take an artist down a peg. Case in point, his review of the new Villagers album, where he accused Conor O’Brien of trying to assert authenticity by dint of an Irish accent, as opposed to simply singing in the accent you’d expect from someone from North Dublin

I suppose this was likely to happen eventually. For what it’s worth, I think Haze is the better rapper, and she’s been on a streak for a while now.

I’d probably call best verse for Danny Brown going by how unhinged he gets near the end, even by his standards. But this is just fucking incredible. Nary a dull verse.

Find myself agreeing with every call here (Call Me Maybe still rules) and the order too, more-or-less. Good work guys. And hon the ‘droids.

I’m a pretty awful sight-reader, but Beck’s one of my musical heros and as a ukuelist I appreciate how accomodating the whole thing is, so I’d be glad to take a punt on this.

I’d like if new material were to surface, but I don’t know if CanOx sans El-P will be worth hearing. Can’t even imagine Vast and Vordul without El’s beats underneath. Different story for someone like Aesop, who sorta did his own thing, beats-wise. Still, I’ll take this news.
