36 years old and yep- genuinely in to it. Hit me like a ton of bricks when I finally heard it in like 1999- then immediately got Arab Strap and the singles when I could. it was constantly being put on to mix tapes to awfully unappreciative young lassies too.

I know it's dad-core as hell, but knopfler's solo in "tunnel of love" gets me every time.

Don't get me wrong- "King" is still one of my faves of the era- wAs really delighted to hear of this reunion but damn she is so off pitch when she sings. Hoping some monitors and a few shows sort this out for Tanya.

I just got into Isbell the last few months - sadly missing his last show here in Aarhus, DK. This guy - he's the only songwriter for A LONG time that has dropped me in my tracks and made me weep. I had to sit down once when "Elephant" came on. I feel weird saying this - but he makes Ryan Adams (good Ryan Adams - not when he's trying to prove how punk he is) look a little like a hack.

Awesome song indeed - but the camera editing is making me ill!

Blige had 'scheduling conflicts' with making a film that would certainly get her a bunch of awards, cred and album sales. What's the fucking 411 with THAT?

November 21, 2015 on Less Than 25 People Attend Mark Kozelek Show In Nebraska
What is the point of this article? To try and make it seem lke interest for Kozelek is shrinking? There are alot of factors to blame for a venue not selling out. I mean the venue's PR, weather, another show in town, it's making Koz, the venue and Lincoln, Nebraska look bad..dare i bring up what happened a week ago?. anyway - i'm off to a show that has about 50 people attending.

I'm pretty sure I had this on those damn "Outcesticide" bootlegs that i payed 25.00 for a disc for out of some dudes trunk at Lollapalooza - but i think we all can agree that "Verse Chorus Verse" on No Alternative was the only version we need to hear. Still though - I hope someone gets around to properly mastering all of those boots floating around out there...

September 18, 2015 on Premature Evaluation: Lana Del Rey Honeymoon
This is weird - In the past I was always one of the LDR detractors - getting annoyed with every move he made - musical or otherwise. Then - something happened - I saw her live last summer - it was an ok performance, but i came away from it thinking..."wow...i'm like...in love with her". I heard 'Honeymoon' when it came out then this summer, and for obvious reasons, it became the soundtrack to my actual marraige..the rest of the tunes started falling in place..."High by the beach"...my wife went back to Denmark and I was left here on the island for two months on my own due to work/life..etc...THAT spoke to me too... I was ready for a song about smoking, drinking sun-drop and eating combos while watching "That Metal Show" re-runs, but alas... The point is - this is the only LDR album that I get. It actually moves me - and that conflict of her being fake and brainwashing youth or whatever has washed over and now I just accept that i'm a middle-aged married man who crys when he hears LDR. I also spend a huge portion of my day explaining to teeners on Quora that she's not actually sad, but nonetheless...I think this is the best review of the album possible.

Correction: that band that is coming out with an EP is "Tile breaker", not "Tie Breaker" - and they are very good. Just thught i would drop that in! Great to see some Aarhus bands getting on the 'Gum.

August 28, 2015 on Justin Bieber’s New Single “What Do You Mean” Is Really Great
Just yesterday we had the entire catalogue of Richard Thompson rated and put out on the table - one of the greatest musicians of the modern era - with little fanfare from the usual Streogum readers - now we have a Bieber/Skrillex joint and the page lights up like it was a Smiths reunion. Just sayin'...

i meant "Henry..." being hands down even an album that RT doesn't even like i gather - forgetting that, not to list it.

August 27, 2015 on Richard Thompson Albums From Worst To Best
When i saw this list come up in my newsfeed I actually squealed with joy and oured myself a beer to get stuck in - My favorite webzine counting down one of my favorite catalogues. part of me was totally deflated though as I reeeeally prefer Electric and Dream Attic to any of his solo stuff without Linda - but with a catalogue as cramazing as RT's and fanhood so feverent, you're gonna have issues with whatever goes on, and like you said pretty much: there ain't no bad RT albums....EXCEPT Henry The Human Fly - did we just forget that one? i mean - i would make me feel better to have that dead last rather that You, Me, Us. Is this an oopsie?
