Lololol I immediately thought “Editorializing on Yeezus in the D’Angelo review, ok…”

Replace “Only,” “Anaconda,” “Pills & Potions,” “Bed Of Lies,” & “Grand Piano” with “Shanghai,” “Win Again,” “Mona Lisa,” “Put You in a Room,” & “Truffle Butter.” There you go.

Some of these tunres are really catchy, but others just fall kind of flat. I miss “Stay Away” Charli. Damn.

FUCK YES – hopefully the release stays on schedule – but, haha, how is a new Chromatics album coming before BODY WORK? Hopefully we get both in rapid succession. Also, album title + cover art + track list are so quintessentially CHROMATICS. Stoked.

“Say You Love Me” is hardly the best song on the album (although Jessie Ware’s charisma saves it from being irredeemably bland), but the rest is fantastic. Title track and “Want Your Feeling” for the win.

Totally lazy description of Iceage’s (fantastic) new record – which they have not themselves called country anywhere that I’ve seen. That’s a critic’s descriptor.

Also, if you weren’t already familiar with/a fan of the band, who really probably stayed tuned in to watch the concert special following SNL? Probably a minority of viewers, not to mention where I am the local NBC station didn’t even air the special, opting for infomercials instead.

Seriously. It’s also not currently on Spotify. Which makes it incredibly difficult for anyone to sample the album before deciding where or not to purchase it besides, you know, just downloading a leak.
