Find Me On:
I didn’t know Dean Wareham was putting out a solo album. That’s awesome, I’ve always thought that Luna were criminally underrated (anyone who likes dreamy indie guitar pop should check out Penthouse).
First Night is the obvious highlight on Boys and Girls in America for me
This album is like meeting an old friend that you haven’t seen in a long time, and almost immediately you click back into your old groove and it’s like you’d never been apart.
Even “All in the Family”?
Can we just go ahead and call An Ocean In Between the Waves the best song of the year and get it over with?
dang, i didn’t know that about Mish Way. i love White Lung, that’s really disappointing.
i don’t know her music at all, but the thought that “there’s nothing fake going on” in the suburbs is so hilarious and naive that i can’t even take it seriously
ian cohen thought it was mediocre, so you KNOW it’s good!
it’s all about Nothing for me this week
…god, that sounds depressing. but yeah, that album destroys.
I appreciate that people here are trying to be evenhanded and not take sides in something that is frankly none of our business, but to be perfectly honest, cheating on someone is totally unacceptable and makes you a bad person.
I loved Nehru Jackets, but was kinda meh on Wild Water Kingdom. I feel like I want Heems to be silly and irreverent, but I guess we’ll see.
isn’t that the Nirvana font? is the album title a nod to Nevermind?
That YG remix is alright and all, but in what universe is a bunch of people doing rap hands in an empty room one of the best videos of the week?
It sounds like a blazed Bruce Springsteen. It sounds like classic dad-rock (Bruce but also Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Tom Petty, etc.) filtered through caverns of reverb but somehow gets away with it. It can be criticized as derivate and honestly, if someone told me “you gotta listen to this band, it sounds like the Boss with hella reverb” I would have been like “Yawn, pass” but it is seriously mesmerizing and beautiful and inviting and comforting.
Pia Mia sounds like Hikaru Utada. Kingdom Hearts, anyone?
Seriously, I want a Premature Eval of The War on Drugs already, so we can all talk about how amazing it is in one place.
Not really sure why Pitchfork felt the need to crap on the Bleeding Rainbow album, I thought it was quite enjoyable
and the song!
I’ve always been partial to a Little Cream Soda
I like that the eyeball has an eyelid of its own
Being a regular at a bar does not make you a bad parent either. As long as his visits to the bar don’t interfere with his parental duties (and we have no way of knowing if they do or not, so it seems uncharitable to err on the side of “they do”), he can spend his free time however he wants.
Yeah, if someone smokes in a weed bar, they are obviously a terrible parent! Just like if someone drinks in a regular bar, they’re a bad parent as well. Oh wait, it’s a double standard so old and obvious that I can’t believe I’m even talking about it in 2014 when weed is finally poised for sweeping decriminalization!
It’s not an awesome song but her verses are killer and she’s still a better self-help rapper than Eminem
That Nicki video/song needs to be like 2 times longer.
Just because someone was a drug addict doesn’t mean their life’s work doesn’t deserve to be commemorated and celebrated. Unless you think I should throw away my Nirvana shirts as well? I mean, I wouldn’t want impressionable people to see Kurt Cobain on my torso and think that heroin addiction is cool, right?
