Agreed. Also, for what it’s worth, it’s Tuesday and I just now finally had the time to buy the Years & Years album that came out on Friday, because… I was busy all weekend, and I have time on Tuesdays to buy new music.

X is a little lower than I expected, that’s the one I’ve been listening to the most lately. It’s great. But really you can’t lose with any of them.

I can already tell I’m gonna be rocking Multi-Love all summer long. Much like II, it makes me really happy

I love that you describe them as young. I saw them last year at TBD Fest, and when they came out to set up, they were noticeably older than any of the other bands I’d seen; they’re in their 30s, but when they started playing, they put those younger bands to shame. They played with a youthful intensity that was unmatched. They attacked those songs with their whole bodies. Acetate was like, the high point of the whole festival.

Can’t wait to hear this! What a great week. I’m really loving the new Penguin Prison, and Turnover, and the My Morning Jacket isn’t half bad either.

So, uh, they sound like Kings Of Leon now? Talk about a lateral move from one kind of sucking to another.

I love Carly Rae, I thought her last album was great, but I didn’t feel that I Really Like You was destined for dominance like Call Me Maybe. The song felt a little try-hard, if you know what I mean. Like, you can’t just decide to make a song a hit, it has to connect with people.

Did you know that you can view the curated playlists without signing up? So if this curated content is supposed to be some of the perceived value for subscribers, they’ve failed at that. I took a look at Jay-Z’s playlist, and I already had all those songs on my itunes except for one, which I then downloaded. Sorry Jay-Z!

Yeah, like, after a week, I pretty much forget what else I was upset about. But I still want profiles back.

February 27, 2015 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

Tuesdays have always been my favorite day, making a pot of coffee and listening to all the newly released albums. I like that it’s on a weekday; it’s a bright spot during the work week, I can get to know the new albums that will soundtrack my week, and I have time to see what new music I’ll play out that weekend.

Fridays are already the busiest day of the week. There’s no time to experience new music like you can on a Monday or Tuesday. Maybe it makes sense for record companies, to combat piracy, etc, whatever. I’m a consumer and I’ve been robbed of one of my favorite consumer experience in life, and that sucks.

February 26, 2015 on Friday Is Officially The New Global Record Release Day

Tuesdays have always been my favorite day, making a pot of coffee and listening to all the newly released albums. I liked that it happened on a weekday; it was a bright spot to get me through the week. It gave me time to get to know the new music that would soundtrack my week, and to see what new music I could play out that weekend.

Fridays are already Fridays. They are already the busiest day of the week. There isn’t time to experience new music like you could on a Monday or Tuesday. Maybe this move makes sense to record companies, preventing piracy, etc, whatever. I’m a consumer and I’ve been robbed of one of my favorite consumer experiences in life, and that sucks.

I knew I recognized that vocal line from something, and then I realized: “Uptown Funk” is ripping off Trinidad James’ “All Gold Everything”.

Can’t wait to listen to this! And if you like pop music, the Betty Who album came out today too and it’s a pretty joyous collection of pop songs.

Yikes, that Gawker list! No one who has left their house in the last decade would put “I gotta feeling” so high, that song is the plague.
