Fun to see Kevin, Mark and Blood in a high budget music video Still don't really know why that superfluous key change exists but hey! I'm still holding out for some better deep cuts off Joanne

Sorry to be predictable but Low is an effing masterpiece I still find it emotionally staggering that Bowie winked back at "New Career in a New Town" on his last song on his last album I can't give everything away indeed

I've seen all of the footage and I honestly don't believe these were bad shows - like if Manson fucked with the sound guy and fell off the stage i'd consider it a huge treat

I might be just reading surface level but to me it's the work of the patriarchy who spends billions razing the land to suit their infinite demands, whether it's blood diamonds or the tar sands - this is the work of a system that's threatening the very survival of the human race

Despite the fact that Grimes created the best pop album angel music bb of all time, I feel like either Jessy Lanza, Kantranada, or U.S. Girls could do more with that prize money Proud to be Canadian this year esp

Wow. This is exquisite. I don't suppose we know if it's Alejandro singing or not? My guess is not, he's more of a producer/wizard behind the boards but.. imagine if it was Also. Such a babe *swoon* - very excited for this new record

Ugh. Plus consider all of the news she's being bombarded with - the Orando shootings, Christina GRIMMIE etc. as if touring isn't anxiety ridden enough I hope she's okay

June 5, 2016 on 8 Memorable Moments From Primavera Sound 2016 Saturday
Gah! What. A. Show. The new song had a bit of a Boards of Canada feel Kind of a cliché but it's definitely the closest music has ever brought me to a spiritual experience, to a place without fear, without doubt, only pure fucking universal love. Plus, Jonsi tearing his guitar e-bow to shreds while unleashing waves of glorious feedback is pretty punk rawk if you ask me

Ugh this is so sad. Downie is such an excellent frontman, and a hugely underated lyricist " One afternoon, four thousand men died in the water here and five hundred more were thrashing madly as parasites might in your blood Now I was in a lifeboat designed for ten and ten only Anything that systematic would get you hated It's not a deal not a test nor a love of something fated (Death) The selection was quick The crew was picked and those left in the water were kicked off our pant leg And we headed for home Then the dream ends when the phone rings You're doing alright he said It's out there most days and nights But only a fool would complain Anyway Susan, if you like, our conversation is as faint as a sound in my memory As those fingernails scratching on my hull" - Nautical Disaster

Why anyone would speculate Radiohead's imminent demise without a shred of evidence is beyond me, but yeah, this album is incredible, for me only beat out by their Kid A/Amnesiac combo Just a staggering piece of work. Decks Dark my gawwwwd, so gorgeous. I could go on and on Pitchfork actually has a lovely write up of TLW :

Ahhh! Maybe I'm a hopeless devotee, but at this point I really can't comprehend people doubting her live performance skills - her voice is lithe and airy, singing the high notes while playing guitar, triggering her own electronics/synths, and rocking twitchy vampire dance moves in between. In a corset. Who else does that or writes songs as hyper addictive as this?! Sailor Moon power-up fireball attack transformation
