Wow, my 1# was Jim James’s ‘Regions Of Light & Sound Of God’….I guess they can claim that glaring mistake of not adding this album to their official list consideration due to having missed last week’s Jim James episode of ‘Austin City Limits’….
“..starts of fairly solidly but goes downhill rather quickly”.
perfect description of my digestive process after partaking in one of your edible death burritos, Chippy Of Potle..
music journalism…in all of it’s downward spiral of stagnation….
cool…how from ‘Definitely Maybe-Be Here Now’ Oasis album cover of them…I’m digging it
In My Opinion, Some more new tracks worthy of mention:
The Boxer Rebellion – ‘Diamonds’
Splashh – ‘Need It’
Royal Blood – ‘Figure It Out’
Miles Kane – ‘Better Than That’
Gabriel Bruce – ‘Honey Honey Honey’
The Spinto Band – ‘Amy + Jen’
Radkey – ‘Cat & Mouse’
Is Tropical – ‘Lover’s Cave’
Stornoway – ‘Hook, Line, Sinker’
Electric Soft Parade – ‘Welcome To The Weirdness’
Till the Sleepy Jackson reform and put out their rumored, fabled third LP, MGMT is my Sleepy Jackson…
Sometimes artists have to do unbearable, pretentious, awful music to pay the bills, and since the breakthrough success of ‘walking on a dream’, it appears Littlemore/Steele are in this artsy-fartsy musical phase for this and a third album…do I hate easily, maybe, if I was on the internet jesting, but I like ‘Ice On The Dune’, songs like ‘Surround Sound’/'Ice On The Dune’ keep Empire’s sound fresh and the icetray pop singles of ‘DNA’/'Alive’ keep the pop kids a’poppin’ and a’dancin’. Though hopefully down the road Steele will vacate these ’21st Century Starlight Express Jamiroquai Headdresses’ and record another Sleepy Jackson album, cause there’s no doubt that he’s a ‘Next Brian Wilson in waiting’ after producing the most genuinely awesome opus of his generation with 2006′s “Personality”.
Kanye’s ‘Yeezus’ is as religiously, socially and topically captivating as the last important hip hop album of it’s time and pedigree, 2Pac’s waxing of the baptist with 1996′s opus “Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory”, under the pseudo name ‘Makaveli’
like I previously commented….
you got to admit the SNL rendition of ‘Black Skinhead’ was a bit better than the album version…even with the marginal self-censorings by Ye
I think that was intentional, after such a dark, dank, bloody ride through hell with Ye for the rest of the album, it really needed that ‘cool down’ weirdness at the tailend
well that was..uuhhhh…something….
Panda Bear vox is so hard to dig in this track, even with three supporting android vocod vox
this album could well resurrect and bring the overdue appreciation of the musical careers of giorgio moroder/paul williams
Here’s the continuing problem, Tyler, the royalty rating system is still so flawed that artists still don’t make enough money to live. And I’m not talking about ‘successful established musical acts’, I’m talking about the indie artists out there whom still, under the current royalty system, get an average of only $3-$4 profit per album sold and less than 40-50 cents per dollar download of a single. Legit stream sites, from Pandora-Spotify, operate under the same system…so I expect a few more cents per listen may be thrown out but alas…they still aren’t paid enough…
EA is more of The Borg than Google…if I were to do a star trek alien species comparison to them, Google are the Klingons, fighting among themselves and buying out any new app tech when they can..
Nothing will be better than Spotify….unless you have an extensive collection of music and stream it through your cloud to your portable tech devices…..oh and BTW, Stereogum staff, new QOTSA album ‘Like Clockwork’ has leaked…just for your FYI…cheers..
why can’t trolls who log on to spew their venomous diatribes have a smidgen of continuity to their nonsense?
Paul Williams & Daft Punk, based of the brilliant space operaness of “Touch”, should write/compose a new rock opera, ironically perfectly titled ‘TOUCH’, about the interstellar journey of a emotion-upgraded midget android trying to attain the last attribute of human concept of ‘love’ by travelling back to it’s home planet…starring Tom Hulce as the android…
How awesome would it be if the orchestral flourish at the beginning of “Beyond” was the ‘Startup music’ for the Playstation 4?
‘National Lampoon’s Empire Of The Sun Goes To A National Park And Resurrects Hot Animal Priestesses’
I think when your Pharrell and perform the same song three consecutive times then you have officially released an album
How Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ Sounds To Internet Hipsters:
Here’s the ironic thing: they won’t carry Frank Ocean’s ‘channel Orange’ BUT they will continue carry 3 billion unbought copies of Prince’s 2009 album ‘Lotus Flower’.
