Sorry, I meant the whole schtick is asinine. I’m sure there are some fine songs on the album, I’m just not into the whole “thing.” We get it Miley, you smoke pot, congratulations to you.

I got about 1 minute into the first song before I was like, “nah.”

This whole thing is asinine.

Guys, I don’t want this to sound like I care or anything, because I DON’T, but my Bieber comment with a timeless fan gif got a +36 and was left out of this week’s SUD…#conspiracy?

Saw them in New Haven on Wednesday night. I’ve been to over a hundred concerts in my day, but the fans were some of the WORST I’ve ever been around. Drunk, drugged out, scream-talking at each other during the whole show, passing out (this actually happened – a girl passed out and had to get dragged out), bumping into me and my lady aggressively, hitting on a friend of mine in a very creepy way. Shame on you, New Haven home of Yale. At one point I actually had to turn around and tell a group to shut the fuck up. The guy gave me the finger and threatened to fight me. At a Beach House concert.

All that said, it was a really good show from Beach House. Too bad it had to be sullied by a bunch of jerkholes.

I’m into this list alright, but that Demi Lovato songs should have been replaced by the sweet sounds of Jason Derulo’s “Want You to Want Me.” Therefore, I’m marginally disappointed by the SG community.

AND SO IT BEGINS.

SG is all like, “Fuck CRJ, it’s Bieber time.”

Ohhh man, this should be good.

Also, I wasn’t too impressed with the new Destroyer. I know I’m probably in the minority there, but opinions are like assholes after all…

This band is the shit and the new songs are awesome. That is all.

You’re all complaining about the coverage and I’m just sitting here figuring out if I can afford to go.

Sometimes it’s not my post, I’m just a vessel for a higher spirit. This week, that spirit was Wes Craven’s Deadly Friend.

1000% yes on Real Estate. I’d also throw in Wild Nothing and Small Black’s first album.

August 20, 2015 on Premature Evaluation: Beach House Depression Cherry

I like this PM, but I’ll posit that Beach House is not just music for pain/loss/grieving. I often listen to it when I’m in a good, reflective mood and that suits it just fine.

Example: On my recent vacation, I listened to Depression Cherry while on a morning run on a beach in CA. The cloudiness likely had something to do with why the music fit so well, but it was also the serenity of the situation and the want for me to be able to take it in and store as much of the experience in my mind as possible. Now I think of that experience any time I play the album.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that Beach House’s music isn’t necessarily just for grieving for a time that has passed or for something lost, but for creating and living in nostalgic moments as they’re happening, which I think is a rare thing for music to be able to do. Insta-nostalgia or something.

Was just about to say “I don’t know, but that definitely looks like Kristy Swanson.” I’ve still got it.

August 17, 2015 on Julian Casablancas + The Voidz Cancel North American Tour

I agree – they’ve actually gotten me more excited for the album. I found the debut to be inconsistent, with some really strong songs and some clunkers. The first two singles off of the new one sound a little more subtle with the melodies and less over-zealous to repeatedly hit you over the head with the hooks.

Yep, this is good. “Leave a Trace” was good. No need to fix something that’s not broken. Keep ’em rolling.

The tape is alright and has some seriously clever bits, but let’s be honest – it certainly doesn’t beat out a totally solid proper record like Palehound’s very good debut. Come on guys.

10 Mile Stereo + You Came to Me + The Hours = Beyond.

Seeing them in New Haven, can’t wait. Also, the album’s grown on me quite a bit (as tends to happen with BH albums). It’s a more subtle collection, but reminds me of Devotion in the way the songs bury themselves in your brain.
