Sorry, but Sugar Ray are easily one of the worst bands in the history of pop music and Every Morning is easily their worst song. Go back and pay attention to that melody. It's the most basic and simplistic thing you can possibly think of. And it's not "so simple it's actually genius". It's "so simple it's actually retarded". Seriously, that song sounds like it was written by mentally deficient 6 year old who was given a mallet and a xylophone against the better judgement of the music teacher. The early 2000s were the worst period for popular music and Sugar Ray is one of the many reasons why. I can still get down with some 3EB tho.

I felt the same way about TV on the Radio. After Young Liars, Desperate Youth..., Cookie Mountain, and Dear Science, I thought they'd be the next Radiohead. A band you could count on to put out great music and continue touring for almost a lifetime. Then Nine Types of Light and Seeds were... ok.

Ooh, unless he comes to Treasure Island Fest between Portland and Santa Barbara! IDK, though. Traditionally the first day is more "rock" if that even means anything anymore and the second day is more electronic. He'll be in SB on day to and I think he played day 2 last time. Hmmmm...

The live Blue Bucket of Gold is the highlight of the C&L tour but it's my least favorite track on the actual album.

This really sucks. His lead guitar was one of the best parts of Real Estate. I think I read a pitchfork review or maybe it was here where they said the band basically had two singers, Martin Courtney and Mondanile's guitar. That's a spot on description. I can't imagine they'll ever sound quite the same going forward.

It's not just that she doesn't like her record deal though. She was told by an exec that she needed to lose weight and he compared her to a refrigerator which exacerbated her eating disorder. Allegedly he also sexually assaulted her. And now she's legally required to work with him again on another album. I'd say this qualifies as an occasion worthy of that song.

Bummed they aren't touring with a string section. Greenwood's string arrangements are such an integral part of the new album I thought they might spring for it. I'm sure it's still gonna be amazing.

I'll say it. I loved this shit. I mean, I was like 12 so I think that's a valid excuse for liking dumb shit.

I think parody actually works better. The video isn't laugh out loud funny but there's definitely a sense of dark humor to it. They took this old British TV show that's supposed to be about how perfect and idyllic English country life was and satirized that idea by turning the villagers into sadistic crazy people demanding a human sacrifice.

High waist mom jeans are actually popular again. I'm sure those are at Coachella too. Well, maybe cutoff versions since it's 100+ degrees.

Can we not agree that OASIS is the greatest British band since The Beatles?!?!?! Parliament should pass a resolution...

Bass. Pay attention to the bass. Make sure you've got headphones or a good system and let it rumble through you. He basically fucks you with bass. When you see it live it's just incredible. Then when you get over the pure animalistic thrill of that you can enjoy how fucking pretty everything else is. It's also fun to see him live and laugh at the audible female swoon that happens every time he opens his mouth to sing.

I just finished listening to True Love Waits, it's twilight, a bird is softly chirping out my window, I click over to this review and watch that performance at exactly the right moment. It's so arresting! Just beautiful, thank you! Also, I'm sure it took a great deal of self control to focus on this album to write a review with A Moon Shaped Pool sitting on the shelf tempting you. Well done and great review.

Paid $20 to buy the high quality wav from the band's website and tried to download it to my iPhone so I could listen on the way home from camping last night. Apparently there's some problem and you can't download directly to iTunes from WASTE and I impatiently tapped the link too many times so it froze out. Now I've had to email customer support and they say I won't get a response for 2 days. FML. Good thing my fiancé has Tidal.

There were rumors about a PTA directed video and this does seem to have his fingerprints on it. At least as much as I can tell from a 5 second clip.
