Woah, that's quite a lineup. Horrendous into Wormed sounds like an intense way to start the day! Hope you find a way to get baked unless that's not your jam in which case do whatever.

let's be real, Hail to the Thief and In Rainbows are not excellent album titles either

I believe the original lineup has now recorded more albums post-reunion than they did in the "original" days. I haven't heard the new one yet obviously, but I'll still go ahead and put forward the possibly-controversial opinion that their post-reunion run not only stacks up, but is actually better than their 80s run. Don't get me wrong, I love me some 80s Dino (especially YLAOM holy shit) but Beyond and Farm have some of my favorite songs ever by any band.

May 25, 2016 on Dinosaur Jr. – “Tiny”
This album kicks ass. I was afraid it might be too similar to the self-titled but there is definitely some darker, sludgier stuff on here that makes something like "Dark Days" sound lighthearted. "The Coast" and "Old Wounds" are a great one-two punch right in the middle of the record. So glad they're getting more recognition with this one.

May 24, 2016 on Album Of The Week: PUP The Dream Is Over
That's my favorite Cure song! Great start to a great playlist Someone in the Gregorian chant comments mentioned the Bulgarian State Television Female Choir and that is some craaazy-sounding shit, and yet fits perfectly on mid-80s 4AD, so I just had to add it this week. All of this 90s talk reminds me that the first CD I ever bought for myself was Chumbawamba's Tubthumper. Fun fact: Chumbawamba are a surprisingly awesome, eclectic band but that album really doesn't stand the test of time and *that song* is possibly their all-time worst, though I inexplicably adored it at the time.

Dude ISIS is like 308,000 people (and that's the most generous estimate) out of 1.7 billion Muslims. That's less than .02% so just get outta here with that "truth about Islam" mess

I had assumed that Holden was trans (some trans people go by "they/them") but that doesn't actually seem to be the case, so I'm confused as well. If it's just an affectation, that's kinda shitty. Like a lot of self-proclaimed anarchists I've known (and I've known quite a few), Holden seems a little insufferable, but the music is great so that's all that matters.

Derivative of whom, exactly? Sure, their debut was of a moment with Taking Back Sunday and New Found Glory, but all their subsequent albums are them moving way beyond their peers. Daisy sounds like nobody else.

I worked at a liquor store in a pretty desolate part of town, we only got 15 minutes for lunch and the only place within walking distance was Burger King so that's where everybody went. Then three BK employees came to our store high as fuck on heroin and all passed out in different places- one passed out in the bathroom, one in the wine aisle, and one in the parking lot. We never ate at that Burger King again.

"Blessings" was wayyy too churchy for me, but this and "Angels" are pretty good.
