I've been on a Pandora kick lately in my car and my radio station has been Grizzly Bear (tap into it, its a fantastic mix) but regardless, its been awesome to listen to all things GB from early Horn of Plenty/Yellow House stuff with some Department of Eagles popping up from time to time, too. And, then you mix in some Fleet Foxes, Phoenix & Arcade Fire and you have quite a driving station....

April 15, 2015 on Grizzly Bear’s 5th Album Will Be “More Adventurous”
Man, this is coming off as a totally 'new' sound with me....I honestly don't think I'm committed to it yet, although I'm glad he's pushed his boundaries out. His previous albums were so sparse and emotional...and it soooo worked. He's failed to let me down though, so I'm not too worried yet.

For me personally, either She Sends Kisses or Everyone Chooses Sides made it onto almost every mixed tape I made in 2003.

Seriously dude...she's almost 60. Go back to your Twitter and bitch.

Seriously Madge, dress your age...she looks like that lady that sits on a stool at the end of your local bar. You know the one I'm talkin about.

I believe you are correct, I'm seeing the 28th, actually. Three tracks available for DL on The Evil Empire, iTunes....all fall right in line with their back catalog. Should be another typically outrageously satisfying purchase.

Ironic that you mention Amazon...take the Kindle as an example which makes zero money for the company as an item of sale, but what does? All together people...."the content you put into it."

This is all Apple's fault. Damn you Jobs, damn you to hell...

For some inexplicable reason, I really want to like Taylor Swift. I really do. But, then I see that tweet above, or a shot of her white-girl dancing to Kanye at some Brit awards show, or rolling her eyes at something that a TV camera catches by accident, and I say to myself....NO. I guess it centers around one constant which is if I let her in, then the next thing I know I'm reading People magazine in the checkout aisles and DVR'ing Vanderpump Rules. So, I stay away....now where's that Courtney Barnett disc of mine...

March 25, 2015 on The Week In Rap: Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson, & Major-Label Rap’s Age Of Weirdness
I actually think the recorded sound on this is a ton bigger and better 'sounding' than her EP. It actually kinda scared me at first listen because of that whole backyard twang angle which she uses almost as another instrument which I thought would sorta diminish her sounds unique personality. And, I also think that 'flattened' guitar sound you may have heard was a totally premeditated effort on Courts behalf. This is a really fantastic album. Ton of fun to listen to, as well.

March 24, 2015 on Album Of The Week: Courtney Barnett Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit
Logical choice...another perfect example of an artist who was able to sounder bigger yet still maintain their irresistible charm after their previous release. Lower Dens, Kendrick & Laura Marling and even Earl share the same progress... Strap in people...the landslide of 2015 great releases is about to kick into high gear just in time for summer starting this week

Top 5 at year end...as automatic as the Spring snow melting. This thing is devastatingly beautiful.

You'll have 30 days to return all evidence of any Blurred Lines copies to the local Town Hall. At that time, you'll be shamed and forced to sing, "What's Goin On?," at the top of your lungs while they publicly humiliate you for actually purchasing the song in the first place.

He had to have meant Lionel Richie. Gotta be a typo. Or, he just poked the wrong bear.

March 17, 2015 on British Fans Petition To Keep Kanye West From Headlining Glastonbury
Moving forward...throw all parallels, comparisons and arguments in defense of Good Kid, MAAD City out of your heads. Clearly, his intent with this album was to introduce another direction, at least for the time being. I bet Frank Ocean does the same thing with his impending next release. These two obviously don't like to sit still for very long.
