Comments from mr. mayonaise

"like Macklemore fronting a modern pop-rock band" That's *exactly* what it sounds like.

I've already prematurely declared "Sunday Candy" to be the song of the summer, so I am completely ready for this.

Yeah this might have been okay on Section.80 but no way would this fit on GKMC.

May 21, 2015 on Kendrick Lamar & Lady Gaga – “PARTYNAUSEOUS”
I don't usually brag about my ignorance, but seriously. I recognized Lena Dunham, Hayley Williams, and I think there was a split-second shot of Jessica Alba? I thought this video was a "pileup" of "famous" people... I don't consider myself THAT out of touch.

I'm not a huge fan of either of these gals on their own, though I like individual tracks here and there... but they should seriously do a collab album, they always bring out the best in each other.

The National have put out the best album of the century so far (Boxer, yes it's better than Kid A, shut up) and have yet to go downhill. They're the obvious pick to me.

Yeah I definitely became an atheist because of the internet and some bad experiences at Sunday school. Rap came later.

Frances Quinlan's voice is incredible and surprisingly, it sounds just as powerful, if not more so, live. I'm really glad they're starting to get more attention. I'm surprised you like something like High on Fire but the vocals in FU are a turn-off for you. Try thinking of FU as HOF but with Husker Du instead of Motorhead as a primary influence. Or, I dunno. Different strokes, ultimately.

Alright, you win. You bastards made me give in and sign up for Spotify. It's nifty but the radio is kind of dumb compared to Pandora, huh? Not to turn this into another "everyone post your username" chain but whoops, too late: mine is UnknownSignal. I seem to have found a lot of y'all on the Gummers' Mix.

YES YES YES, Luna are one of the most underrated bands of the 90s. Hearing "Lost in Space" and "Time to Quit" live would be a dream come true. Now if The Sundays announce a reunion, I might actually die of happiness.

So many neo-shoegaze bands are content to just float around in dreamy textures. It's nice to hear some dynamic use of distortion.

I love Chance but Bandcamp is clearly the best. You can actually sell your music there, for one.

Also, Daylight changed their name to Superheaven when they signed to SideOneDummy and their new album Ours Is Chrome is out today. I haven't heard the new record yet but I really liked their previous one, great straight-outta-1992 grunge vibes and way more melodically interesting than some of the other Nirvana wannabes running around these days.

May 5, 2015 on Album Of The Week: Metz II
It's a toss-up between Hop Along and Turnover this week. Both are AOTY contenders. Hop Along's record is some impressively ferocious bloodletting, an heir to the Kurt Cobain school of singing like your words are being ripped out of your throat. Raw as an open wound, and terribly catchy. Cathartic as hell live, too. The Turnover record is really special, too. Highly recommended to anyone who likes dour, dreamy indie rock. It's like if The War on Drugs looked back upon The Cure and The Smiths instead of Bruce Springsteen and Rod Stewart; lots of reverb, clean and shimmery guitar lines, tight drumwork, nostalgia.

Fucked Up are awesome, definitely give them a spin. "Sun Glass" was one of my favorite songs last year. I ride hard for punk rock in these comments, but for some reason I never got around to checking out Titus Andronicus. I'll listen to TA if you listen to FU!

WOW I liked Get Disowned but this is a huge leap forward. One of the best rock albums I've heard in ages.

Do Baroness identify as a Virginia band? I know some of them are originally from VA, but I always associated them with the Georgia sludge scene.

Dude your entire post history is the same snarky, whiny shtick. We get it, you hate "social justice warriors", whatever you perceive those to be. What a novel opinion! Get over it already.
