According to P4k Fleet Foxes will be at that fest too which is even more exciting news (at least for me)! Pecknold debuted new material opening for Joanna Newsom last year and the last time he did that those songs turned into Helplessness Blues. Now they're playing live again, new album must be on the horizon!

Outro to Phish's Billy Breathes. Absolutely beautiful, understated, not a single note that doesn't need to be there.

What time did this happen? I saw James Blake at the Fox in Oakland last night and he played from 9-11ish. Was he in two places at once?

RIGHT! Also, if you claim that Radiohead is your favorite band, how could you be considering Trump? How could you both be a fan of Radiohead and Trump when they're like the antithesis of each other? Either you've completely missed the message of several Radiohead songs or you got the message and somehow don't care that your "favorite band" has a wildly different world view from you.

If you'd played both of those albums for me without telling me who the artists were (hell EVEN IF I'd know the artists) I NEVER would have thought they'd be anywhere on the charts let alone #1 and #2. What a time to be alive!

Regardless of where they're actually from, they'll always be considered Alabamans.

I feel like those of us who were paying attention to the minor Sufjan works in between Illinois and Adz were less blindsided by it and maybe enjoyed it more. After listening to his BQE thingy and his cover of "You are the Blood" (which is fucking unreal) I was suspecting the whole electro-symphony thing from Adz and ended up loving it. That said, I still like Illinois and Carrie & Lowell better.

That Jerry Garcia/49ers one is actually pretty cool. If the Detroit one was Jack White or something motown that looked cool I might consider getting it. Instead it's Eminem.... Although I can't tell what it has to do with him. Just looks like a Lions shirt.

Talented artists use vocal effects as a tool. I think Kanye knows he isn't that great of a singer (though he'd probably never say it out loud) but he knows how to use studio effects to create the sound he's looking for. He's not a great singer, but he is a great artist, so he does what he has to do to get what he hears in his head out there. Vernon is an example of a great artist and a great singer. He doesn't need vocal effects to sound good, but sometimes he needs them to get what he hears in his head out there. Then there's people like T-Pain. Great singer, not a great artist. He didn't need vocal effects to sound good but he wanted to sound different from everyone else so he slapped on some auto-tune so he could kinda sound like a robot.

Looks like the whole thing is 18 tracks and track 3 is called false alarm.

Regardless of anyone's opinion on his songwriting, dude's got chops. I was forced to see him live at a festival once and he kinda won me over.

September 16, 2016 on Trying To Make Sense Of John Mayer’s Career, 10 Years After Continuum
I'm sure this is well-written and thoughtful, but it's also way more words than anyone needs to read about John Mayer. If he was exceptionally bad or exceptionally good, sure, maybe. But he's so fucking milquetoast that he just doesn't warrant this. I stopped after the No Such Thing video jump. All that aside, I laughed out loud super hard at Dave Mathews sounding like "a muppet on bath salts". So accurate. So funny.
