Whole album is fantastic, but the second half of the album is some of the best music of 2015. They do such a great job of making you think they are fun and breezy, then surprise you with this amazing sense of space and weight to their songs.

Absolutely. This man can say whatever the fuck he wants to say. Its all pearls of gold while he's in our lives...pure living legend. If you don't like him, you don't know him.

How bout the ole "doesn't like rap music so that must mean he doesn't like black people" thinks that's a little more ignorant. Using the word black in that particular comment has no bearing on his distaste for it, yet it needs to be mentioned?

Ridiculous comment. Where did race get anywhere near his comment regarding his simple dislike for rap? Have you seen his back up band? Pretty sure it has zero to do with black influences.

Respectfully, I'd be more upset if he told us that he did like rap music.

This smells like something that will be a fantastic and pleasant surprise once we get to hear it. Everything about it (including No Sleeep) just whispers comeback.

September 3, 2015 on Janet Jackson’s Unbreakable Details Revealed
Once again, negative commentary involving one of the true hitmakers of this century. A man who not only fronted a fantastic rock band but also was able to separate that persona from his solo career identity. Relevant or not, dated or old, anyone who appreciates music and the art form should have nothing but pure praise for this guy. And btw, what a frigging tracklist....kudos the The Lonely Man There on the Corner...

Funny, what wasn't mentioned was that Grimes tried on about 6 different outfits before settling on one.

There's a quote from Spinal tap that always seems to bleed into my head when VMA season comes around and I witness the bloated, overachieving attempts to 'manufacture' shock. "There's a fine line between stupid, and clever." I remember the day when artists like Prince & Madonna could pull it off so effortlessly. I know I'm older now, but sill...the effort to wanna be the most popular kid in shock school is flat out tiring which may be why the coverage of this event has lost its, um, style?

Sadly, a rapist doesn't need to see a specific wardrobe or a certain 'promiscuous' attitude to commit these insanely despicable acts on women. Chrissie Hynde, you should be ashamed of yourself for misrepresenting your gender so profoundly.

Seriously, Grimes...we're going to break up with you if you don't stop all this. You're being a bit ridiculous now.

I dunno, I just find this news so wildly irrelevant. Be better if you told me Frank Ocean or Kanye was due in November. Then, at least I'd have a firm date to put on my calendar. Really don't think you guys need to let us in on this fun Billboard fact.

I know, right?! I mean, really, here's a novel concept...pick up the phone and tell her to fuck off. Be far more satisfying and far less cowardly.

August 26, 2015 on Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste Deletes Twitter Account Amid Backlash For Taylor Swift Comments
Things like this are so unsettling to me. Seems that if Compton never existed and the recent mention of its script omissions and the victims coming out from the past to point to his abusive behavior, this would have continued to stay under the dirty carpet. And then ya got Apple putting their arm around him with a 'atta boy' for "owning up to your 25 year old mistakes, ya know, cuz we got a lotta effing money invested in you and you're damn well gonna post a statement." Seriously, I grew up round the time NWA and Dre, EZ, Ice Cube etc, and these were some bad muthafuckers. The film makes them look like The Avengers.

So, an artist with a delayed album release being replaced with another artist with an even more delayed album release and its cause for debate? #overthinking Think I need to finally come to terms with the fact my Kanye themed summer BBQ just isn't going to happen...

Agreed. I always listen to Beach House while on a run, especially Teen Dream, which you'd think is counterproductive, but actually quite the opposite. I'm blessed to run along the water where I live, and there are some mornings while running along the coast with these guys dripping out of my ear buds where the feeling borders on a combo of runners high paired with an out of body experience.

I'm unable to separate or name one song that stands out from another, because I've just been pushing play on NPR, then when its over, pushing play again. I can say this, it sucks you then around the 34 minute mark, it simply drags you in for an underwater swim. Truly remarkable aura to this band.

Surprised Infinite Jest or Freedom didn't make either of Carrie or Stipes list, they seem to be books they would lean toward, but either way I think these guys just getting these kinds of lists out in the open can only do good.
