You probably don't need me to tell y'all this, but go see him. His current live show is just insanely good. The new songs sound huge and amazing and almost everything else also got new versions which are mind blowing. Don't miss out on this

Walter Schreifels is a true hero. Not one bad project. I'm psyched

Been listening on repeat since this album find its way to the internet a few days ago. It's simply beautiful music. Every further listens opens up new sounds and new melodies, it just packs so much. One of the year's best albums so far, if not the AOTY

They wanted to make sure you know you aren't listening to Portugal the country

I fucking love The Satanic Satanist and has been a big fan of it since it came out, but they got progressively worse with each listen for me. Evil Friends was fine (though I can't say I remembered anything off of it a year later) - but that new album is really borderly unlitenable. Couldn't even make it the whole way through, it's just really not good. "Feel It Still" just feels to me like a lesser version of "Pumped Up Kicks" which was a pretty bad (but catchy as hell) song itself

Do You Wanna Get High? is amazing, this one really isn't. I'll give them the benefit of doubt like I always have since Red but I just know I'm going to get disappointed again

August 17, 2017 on Weezer – “Mexican Fender” Video
I would've said I hope it's another case of weakish lead single that leads to an otherwise pretty good album, but seeing that Feels Like Summer is on this pretty much killed any hope I had. Oh well, it was a good 2-album run while it lasted

I thought the headline said Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and it sounded like an infinitely more interesting concept

3 is definitely the limit. But what I hate even more is when the singles are all one after another on the album, like the new Grizzly Bear or Arcade Fire. It takes you 4 songs to actually get to one you don't know yet

August 16, 2017 on LCD Soundsystem – “Tonite” Video
Yeah, agrees. Like when R U Mine ended up on AM, or how the 2 Beck singles that have been around for over a year and pretty ubiquitous since are going to be on Colors

Last year before White Album dropped Rivers was around and I asked him to promise me the record will be great, and he did, and it was. So I'm going to try this one more time - Rivers, if you're around - please be another great album, because I don't know what to expect!

They didn't play this when I saw them but it was an amazing show nontheless. This is a very good song, liking it better then I Can Tell You About Pain. although Eve is the best one so far. Extremely excited for this, AWLWLB might be their best album so far

"Cold Cave mastermind" is nice and all but Wes Eisold is first and foremost the Give Up the Ghost / Some Girls mastermind

You mean this week, with Grizzly Bear (!!!) and Everything Everything. Then it's QOTSA and Thee Oh Sees (which is a great fuckin album), then DFA1979 and National... aaah fuck this is going to be a great few months

Their best? Arc was pretty fucking great so that's a high bar to pass. Hoping you're right (but also know I'm probably going to be listening to nothing but Grizzly Bear for the next week or so, at least until QOTSA is officialy out)
