Ironically, it’s almost gotta Monaco feel to it. I like it. Right in their comfort zone.

The long version of Dancing Barefoot attached to the ‘When Love Comes to Town’ single. So good.

Least he coulda done was let us in on when this phantom album would drop. I have all this charcoal here that I bought specifically for this summer bbq CD and time is running out.

Let’s be clear here…we are taking time out of our day to comment on a Twitter duel with Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj. I think that pretty much sums up every possible undesirable scenario, Bloc. But thanks for shout out anyway….that Wrens album will be out soon then the world will find its axis again.

July 23, 2015 on Taylor Swift Apologizes To Nicki Minaj For VMAs Spat

I’m sure this will all get settled when they bump into each other at their lockers after school starts back up…they’ll have an OMG moment and have some gigs and gags over that awkward moment when Scottie offered Nicki his letter jacket at the end of the annual summer beach bonfire..

I just had to immediately play that song again. So good.

July 22, 2015 on Kurt Vile – “Pretty Pimpin” Video + b’lieve i’m goin down… Details

Some things are meant to stay as they were so many years ago, intact, not try to be recreated with some angle that simply doesn’t fit, and can’t even remotely capture the essence of how it was back at the height of its success.

This would be one of those things.

July 22, 2015 on N.W.A Reunion Tour Rumored With Eminem As Honorary Member

All this AOTW, PE, release date change from Tuesday to Friday, surprise drops, mixtapes coming from all sides talk. Then ya got, well, if its an AOTW it can’t be a PE and vice versa….man, I miss the days when I used to read my Rolling Stone/Spin mag reviews on new music, try and come up with enough change in my car ashtray to drive down to Cutler’s Records in my city and spend 2 hours picking out a tape for the ride home.

This is all getting way too sophisticated.

Nothing will ever beat The Monitor. It’s a nearly perfect album. It’s like The Wall for slackers.

Has anyone heard Marissa Nadlers cover of Sabbath’s ‘Solitude’? Cuz, um, that’ll be your song of the week.

Summerteeth…easily their most approachable. Then, you can go on an adventure to the Yankee Foxtrot Hotel

You write that as if it’s a surprise that Kieth Richards created another catchy, bluesy song with a great hook over his twangy Fender. Main Offender and Talk is Cheap are flat out fantastic. I wish the Stones would strip down like he does on his albums.

July 16, 2015 on Keith Richards – “Trouble”

No shit! Let’s be real… O’connor dropping the “C” word is whats stirring this whole thing up anyway. Take that word out, and its just another random RS bashing tweet. A passionate Irish woman who has always spoken her mind to a fault said c*nt when commenting on a Kardashian. Oh, the horror.

July 14, 2015 on Sinead O’Connor Says Music Has Officially Died Because Of Kim Kardashian

Sinead O’Connor has always been uncomfortably blunt and has no governor whatsoever when it comes to blasting out shocking comments so to be surprised with her tweet is pointless. It almost comes off trivial in a weird way. Rolling Stone is as much a music magazine nowadays as MTV is solely a music video channel. Pop culture will always win out because it sells.

I absolutely love Shabooh Shabaah, not one throwaway, but you cannot deny Kick of the title on this one…when I look back on my days living in the 80’s, it must be included as one of the 10 best albums of the decade.

Note to self: Listen to every Tame Impala album no less than 6 times before commenting. But man, first time through is like swimming in a wormhole. Fantastic.

I wanted to give you half a thumb up because you are dead on with ‘Holy Shit’ but to consider ‘Bored in the USA’ a dull song is so off the mark is a travesty. Either way, the fact he wants to build off these two sets anticipation for his next at warp speed.

I thought all his albums were spoken word.

July 7, 2015 on Mark Kozelek Announces Spoken Word Album, Collaboration With Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell

I’m sorry, but as good as Miguel is as an artist, he’s merely a disciple of Prince. He will always have that Prince’s influence around him right down to the sexual vibe he uses, too. Not that this is a bad thing (it seems that literally every R&B artist out there has Prince in their blood)

Ocean has taken his influences and put a very unique spin on the approach. Tough to explain, but I think those of us that listen to him see it as very innovative in terms of style and substance. We are all going to be blown away with Frankie’s imminent release. I think it will be in the conversation for AOY. Either way, it’ll be just ahead of Miguel on every end of year list.

I’m just happy we have them both.
