Fairly accurate, though Chairs Missing and Pink Flag are pretty interchangeable.

According to the Tool facebook page, several of those U2 vinyls went out accidentally with the 1992 Opiate EP by Tool.

Next week - Speedy Ortiz or Built to Spill. Both are excellent.

Doesn't sound like its an attack on Love's parenting skills, more on Love's social presence to me, regardless of negative or positive impact. Her mom's a celebrity. Can't be easy for the girl to have one dead celerity parent as well as a celebrity mom.

While I don't think it comes close to the excellence of Cerulean Salt, Ivy Tripp is a worthy follow up. She possess a wonderful voice that's delicate and raw at the same time. I think Under a Rock is my favorite track so far.

My personal favorite this week is the Soft Moon's "Deeper." It ups the post-punk aspect felt on the last few LPs but also has a bit more noise to it. I'm digging it a lot. Gonna give this Godspeed record a spin. Never really listened to them before. One song in so far and I'm enjoying it.

Bangers & Mash would be my pick off of the In Rainbows B-side collection. I hope Identikit is on the next album or at least a studio recording of it. That song was excellent live.

as much as I loved KOL, I think their best song from those sessions was The Daily Mail, which I think would have capped the album pretty well. Also, Hail to the Thief is amazing, and not "bloated."

Pile is great, but this week I'm leaning towards Swervedriver, Spectres, and Gateway Drugs more.

Or what about Gang of Four, who are playing the same state, just 4 days earlier?

March 3, 2015 on Viet Cong Show Cancelled Because Of Offensive Band Name
Here's the actual snippet from impose magazine that highlights the "ignorance." I feel that the "ignorance" part is being taken slightly out of context here. "What about the name Viet Cong—was that intentional? Matt Flegel: That comes from our drummer, and from us being teenagers and watching movies. The Viet Cong were always the bad asses in movies. We are getting a lot of shit for the band name—it’s fairly controversial. I’ve looked into it a bit more since then, but I didn’t really know the history of it. [The Viet Cong] did terrible things, but so did the American military. Munro: I feel like calling [the band] ‘The U.S. Marines’ wouldn’t be controversial here in the same way. Flegel: Also, it’s just a band name for us. Munro: We didn’t mean it to be offensive to anyone. But we do understand… I’m not gonna be indignant if someone’s upset about it. Have you ever been confronted about the name? Munro: We’ve gotten some emails that were pretty crazy. It’s emails and YouTube comments, and that’s really the extent of it. Or we’ll just get shot on stage by some rogue renegades and that’ll be pretty crazy, too."

Seems to me that Q1 & Q2 2015 surpass any other year.. Definitely stronger than last year.

Hmmm. I've been digging this more than Sleater-Kinney's new album. I like both, but I like this more.

I didn't really care for this one. Of the big releases next week this was my least favorite. It just doesn't feel as compelling as their previous work, not even their last album. It's not terrible, just not on par with their previous work.

January 13, 2015 on Stream The Decemberists What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World
That's a good point. They're one of my favorite bands, so while I see stiff competition, I'd probably put them in a list of the best from the last 20 years. Certainly above VW, Arcade Fire, and The National.

January 12, 2015 on Premature Evaluation: Sleater-Kinney No Cities To Love
They'd be in my top 10 of the last decade for sure, but to extend to top 20 they'd have some stiff competition.

Don't just give it a shot, fucking emerge yourself in this album. It's wonderful.

January is a killer month - S-K, Panda Bear, Viet Cong, California X, The Dodos, and even the Decemberists managed a decent album. I'm hoping this means Viet Cong will be AOTW. It's much deserved.
