The single most overrated band in the history of music, except (maybe) U2.

July 26, 2015 on Kanye West – “All Day / I Feel Like That” Video (Dir. Steve McQueen)

Tweedy is a Full Of Hell and metal fan in general. He really pissed UK crowds off a few years ago when he would end tunes with metal riffing and painful feedback squalls. I love it! I’m into that noisy shit (and Wilco) so let me assure you, FoH is a fine hardcore/grind band. Their set at Maryland Deathfest was incredible. It’s what made me a fan. They are not your average grind band. They have a trumpet player (trumpeter? trumpeteer? trumpetist?). More importantly, they display the kind of dynamics that the best grind bands employ, as opposed to wall-to-wall blasting.

Long live Wilco!

July 24, 2015 on Wilco Thank You For Downloading Star Wars And Recommend 17 Recent Albums To Buy

I’ve listened to this a few times now. It’s good but that headline belongs on Summertime ’06.

Seriously, Vince Staples has stolen my eardrums and I don’t want them back. That album is fucking perfect, blowing right by “incredible” like it’s standing still.

Meg Myers IS a bad ass. Her generic name belies her badassery.

Man these guys used to be awesome. Wild Mountain Nation and Furr are great records. They’ve been ok but nothing near those two since. Furr was a constant repeat album for about a year after it came out.

Flying. Saucer. Attack. Brilliant band. ‘Nuff said.

July 13, 2015 on Q&A: Jason Isbell Talks Something More Than Free And Rising From The Darkness

I love that you love this guy. Isbell’s music means more to me than you can imagine. When he played Cover Me Up at a recent show, I cried like a teenage girl at a One Direction show. I may have said that before but I don’t care. It’s true. And I’m a metalhead (really, I just like emotionally “heavy” music). Southeastern was the curve ball that I did not know I needed. I have been profoundly changed, and I want to tell him that.

Is the whole thing streaming somewhere? I can’t wait any longer…

July 13, 2015 on Q&A: Jason Isbell Talks Something More Than Free And Rising From The Darkness

“It’s a record made to be played when you’re feeling fragile, open, and willing to have a stranger’s words cradle you.” So Southeastern part 2!

Hell yes! Southeastern may be my single favorite album of the last 5 years. There are few people in the world that can tap into a raw emotional vein quite like this guy.

Can’t wait to listen to this…

More Killer Mike being awesome. You see, he KILLS MICS…and his name is Michael. Little double entendre there…

There’s not much else to say really.

July 2, 2015 on Watch Killer Mike Talk Rap And Racism On Tavis Smiley

Hahahaha this is par for the course with this guy. I was at the Crack The Skye release party in the Warner Brothers office a few years back (used to work in a semi-related area). After about 5 minutes of chatting with Brent Hinds he just shoves a Bud tallboy in my hand and walks away. I got a sweet pic with Brann Dailor though! And a tallboy! That guy is a sweetheart. Those sentences are a bit out of order…

Still, the show at Central Park a month ago featured one of the single greatest performances with a guitar I have ever seen. Simply jaw-dropping. The man can just play but it’s Dailor who does most of the talking.

I would really like that LeMonjello. I’m getting all tingly now.
