While the year is still quite new, I will concur.
The War on Drugs – Lost in a Dream
You buried the lead.
Shaggy put out an album this year!
This is going to be a good one. Christmas Underground has been excited about this for a while, because indeed, it is going to be wonderful. http://christmasunderground.com/2014/11/09/upcoming-los-campesinos-a-los-campesinos-christmas-2014/
I don’t think MK or SKM will be invited to play any more festivals… and that’ll be a good thing for him (not his scene) and for every other unfortunate band who is booked at the same time. I own nearly everything he has put out… and while I somehow love some assholes in music, I find myself sharing the sentiment of yesterday’s essay… the constant bitching in both song and life are really wearing me down.
At least when Oasis were at their bratty best, it felt more fun. He must be doing something right, if you look at the most commented stories, they are 4/5 Sun Kil Moon stories.
I give the War on Drugs credit for not engaging.
“Carry Us All”
Future ISLANDS (on an island!)
Look out Rick Astley…
