I think you went with the right choice. Metz II is most excellent. I was disappointed by MCIII, and I've never been a MMJ fan. Torres' Sprinter is still a confusing one for me, but I haven't listened enough to it. Hop Along and Downtown Boys are great this week too.

I wouldn't go so far as to saying that. There have been some most excellent albums like Viet Cong, Sleater-Kinney, and Speedy Ortiz; some really good albums like Built to Spill and Panda Bear, and then some impressive debuts from Spectres and Cloakroom. Q1 and Q2 of 2015 has not disappointed me at all, but there have been a few crap releases definitely. I wouldn't say this is crap, it's just not something I was hoping for and not something I particularly like.

Well the band never intended to do a follow up to Post-Nothing, it was recorded right as they were thinking of breaking up. They put the album out because it was already done, then it picked up steam. So they didn't really think about doing a follow up but did because we fans demanded it basically. They toured the shit out of the world after. No idea on if they are going to return, but I hope they do.

Presently on hiatus. No indication of future material or touring.

Hmmm. I'm gonna have to respectfully disagree, despite the great write up for it. I didn't care for this album at all. I'm a little tired of the Passion Pit sound, and this oozes with that. I was hoping that Mew wouldn't go that route. Seems to me that a lot of bands are repeating that sound - sort of a Phoenix/Passion Pit hybrid. I liked it when those bands did it, but a band known for their prog rock highlights, this was just a disappointment. Sorry!

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.
