Can't stand spazzy Thom Yorke. The "Lotus Flower" video and even his live persona today is so different from the OK Computer and Kid A days when he was so cool. I'm strangely embarassed for him nowadays. Anyways, the "Just" video is spetacular. One of the best ever.

I made it through about a minute of that Zac Brown Band song. Good god that's bad.

Burial always drops a late December EP that just destroys.

Also Alex G's DSU is an amazing album. It will definitely make my top 5. Anyone who is a fan of 90's indie with a DIY feel should definitely check it out. It's the most under-the-radar great album of the year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EN6EIIR5K0A

The TV on the Radio album deserves more love. Also, Liars. Both are consistently great bands who put out great albums who's only fault is they aren't as amazing as their earlier material.

That video for "Timebomb" is bad. Really bad. Yikes.

The production is awesome. I was pumped when it started but lyrically it's crap and there's not much of a hook or anything memorable to grab hold of. I LOVE TV on the Radio but I hope they're not running out of ideas. The last album was good but I have to force myself to listen to it and generally pick any of their other albums over Nine Types of Light when I'm in the mood for them.

The sad thing is that he's a a grown ass 47 year old man. How pathetic. I get it if it's Tyler the Creator or some bratty 20 something in a punk band. But jesus, he sounds like such an asshole.

If it makes you feel better than lumping U2 in the the Eagles and Aerosmith, just lump them in with R.E.M., The Cure, The Pixies, etc. U2 should have broken up in the late 90's. Then when they re-united today it would be like the Police or The Pixies where everyone went apeshit to see them again. Their biggest fault was to keep trekking along in mediocrity for 20 years.

September 11, 2014 on U2 Release Free Album Songs Of Innocence And Debut “The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)” At Apple Event
Well to be fair, Interpol is 12 years removed from their classic album. Today's indie music hasn't changed that much since 2002 so of course they still sound ok. U2 formed in the 70's and hit their classic period 30 years ago. Of course they sound like shit today. It just makes what David Bowie is doing all the more impressive.

I think it's more likely the ipod touches will hopefully go to a 128 GB flash drive. I don't blame Apple for getting away from the moving hard drives. Flash drives have grown in size by leaps and bounds over the past few years. If this doesn't happen, my real fear is that Apple will expect us to stream our libraries through the cloud which makes great sense in theory but sucks when I'm driving down the highway or at the beach and lose signal. Maybe one day cloud streaming will work everywhere but today it's spotty.

Several years ago I was out with some friends and we ended up at a shitty pool hall. We got drunk on pitchers of cheap beer and the bar was blasting old AC/DC all night. Just every fucking hit imaginable. They have at least 25-30 songs you know. And for whatever reason it just hit the sweetest spot between nostalgia and being wasted playing pool. The next few days I downloaded everything I could get. It's all been sitting in my iTunes ever since and hasn't gotten a single play. Still, there's going to be some night down the road hanging out with friends where the mood is right and I'm going to blast that shit and although I'll probably get a few eye rolls at first, AC/DC will win you over.

That reggae-pop tune "Rude" about marrying the girl is blowing up pretty big. Has way more of a SOTS feel. Love the Future Islands but definitely not feeling it as song of the summer.

If I went to someone's house and they had on a Coldplay album I would think their taste in music is highly questionable and would be slightly embarrassed for them.

Maybe you're from England or Europe, but in the States hardly anybody bought a Blur album prior to "Song 2" becoming an alt radio smash. The classic Blur albums were completely unknown. I kept seeing on MTV about the Blur vs. Oasis feud and couldn't understand how the band behind "Wonderwall", Champagne Supernova", etc could be competing with some unknown British band. Elastica got a few songs on the radio, but Pulp was unknown. Same with almost all of the bands mentioned this week. I think the whole Britpop influence is overplayed as far as the US goes.

I love The Verve's Urban Hymns. Richard Ashcroft can write amazing ballads. "Lucky Man" is such a great song along with "Sonnet", "The Drugs Don't Work", and of course "Bittersweet Symphony."
