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.
Best KISS songs not on this list (that are all better than “Lick it Up”):
I Stole Your Love
Shout it Out Loud
Hard Luck Woman
Do You Love Me?
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.
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.
