September 23, 2016 on The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
'“The Weekend Starts Here” starts off as laid-back afghan-rug funk and never really jacks up its tempo to losing-your-mind levels. It sounds like a less-sloppy version of one of the amateurish funk instrumentals that the Beastie Boys were using as album tracks.' Well it is based on a sample of Idris Muhammad's "Loran's Dance" which the Beasties also sampled for the opening and closing of Paul's Boutique.

I like it. But it does disappoint me that on an album that he claims to be inspired by The Smiths, Bad Brains and Talking Heads, he puts out a first single that sounds like it has more in common with Phil Collins than any of those.

Honestly I think the stuff that's been coming out of Rise Records, like Issues, is worse than this.

I'm still not entirely sure how Hotline Bling ripped of Cha Cha. How does a song based around a Timmy Thomas sample rip off a song that was based around the Star World Map music from Super Mario World? Or did everyone just confuse both songs with the Wii Store music?

Of course not. We didn't start referring to things as problematic till like 2011 or so.

The folks at the NFL were too busy listening to Springsteen, The Who and Black Eyed Peas during her heyday to ask her.

What? An article about Futuresex/LoveSounds and yet no article commemorating the anniversary of the 2006 pop classic, PARIS? Need I remind you that album got 4.5/5 from Allmusic.com?

It's a false memory because you actually were watching De La Soul perform A Roller Skating Jam Named "Saturdays".

Nah. She needed to namedrop James Blake, who would subsequently deny any involvement.

September 9, 2016 on New Lady Gaga Album Also Features Father John Misty, Beck, Florence Welch, & Josh Homme
And on an Avalanches album as well! But that has more to do with the unlikeliness of a new Avalanches album period, than Father John Misty's involvement.

Why would they be covering a Northern Soul song from the 60s on an 80s tribute?

So, does it look like HAIM, Lorde, and Charli XCX probably won't releasing new albums till 2017?

Somehow both The Avalanches and American Football have put out new albums this year, but The Wrens have not.

August 23, 2016 on American Football – “I’ve Been Lost For So Long”
I'm kind of hoping this is for a Weeknd album or something that isn't a Daft Punk album, since he seems like the type of guet that would have belonged on Random Access Memories, and I enjoy the left hand turns that they do on each album. I just don't want this one to be a retread of the previous alum.

Are you saying that there's actually better YouTube music reviewers out there? Because I've never really cared for Fantano, but have also found that he doesn't really have much competition either.

I wouldn't call Machine’s "There But For The Grace Of God Go I" a blindingly obvious music cue, when the entire Suicide Squad soundtrack exists.
