Rubber Johnny is getting more relatable and that’s scary.

I cannot get over how fantastic this song is. John Darnielle continues to up his songwriting game. Here’s to hoping he’s got a TKO with the album.

I preferred it when Kid Rock was involved with glass dildos.

I just saw Windhand a couple of weeks ago and holy shit, that band plays incredibly loud. Like so loud that they’re an earthquake and your body is just trying to have enough balance just to stand up. And her voice still cuts through. It’s just absolutely amazing. It’s really nice to hear that she can come down in volume and show some more nuanced singing.

On a side note, High on Fire played that aforementioned show as well. It was a dream come true and probably would have been for you, as well.

Woah. This was shot in Nashville. Was not expecting to recognize all these places.

I’ve been waffling and Distant Haze… or Marrow. Both fantastic. I think I just chose Marrow because it’s Tuesday.

LVL UP – Hoodwink’d
YOB – Marrow

Probably won’t see these there, but these were my favorites.

Distant Haze by Sivyj Yar is probably my song of the year, there’s just so much going on and it’s so gorgeous.

Looks like I made a good investment.
