I gotta say, I like "Life Goes On" a lot more than most of Pac's other weepers. "Until I get free, I live my life in the fast lane, got po-lice chasin' me" This is probably the album that got me away from listening to strictly indie hip-hop and into appreciating some mainstream rappers. Also, "my only fear of death is coming back to this bitch reincarnated" is one of the most depressing lines I've ever heard, up there with "if life's not beautiful without the pain, i'd rather never ever see beauty again" by Modest Mouse.

I gotta admit I was skeptical of a sad-ballad take on this song, but this is surprisingly effective

The production on Yeezus is incredible. Lyrically it's cringeworthy from start to finish.

He obviously still has tricks up his sleeve as a producer, but he went from good rapper on Graduation to decent rapper on MBDTF to mediocre rapper on Yeezus to terrible rapper on TLOP. He should just produce beats for other people.

It really only makes sense for *women* to re-appropriate the word "bitch" towards empowerment. That's why no one gets up in arms when women refer to each other as "bad bitch" or whatever. How on earth can a man, African American or otherwise, claim to be re-appropriating the word "bitch" away from a pejorative meaning?

All of SVIIB's online media says the record comes out Feb 26th. Did something change?

seriously though, Pinegrove deserves this way more than Young Thug, who already got AOTW for mumbling into auto-tune the LAST time he released a mixtape, which was only 3 months ago!!

"Next week is gonna be Pinegrove or I'll eat my pants. Nothing else notable is coming out unless WAVES leaks early." Zzzzzip. Munch munch munch. Hm. Kinda gamey.

Their music videos are always on point. Hardest-working band in punk rock right now.

Ezra Furman, Rostam, Dirty Nil, and Papooz were all new finds that I enjoyed a lot, especially Papooz. Dumb band name, awesome song! That Ulver track was great too. Cheers to lobsterman for adding "Mistress" this week! Probably my favorite Red House Painters song. I really wanted to add "No More Bullshit" by Camper Van Beethoven this week, but weirdly, some of their album tracks are available on Spotify and others aren't, with no consistency that I can discern.

I feel like the AV Club commentariat is pretty good with TV (when it doesn't devolve into Simpsons references, which is all the time) but when it comes to music, like 75% of the commentary revolves around the band's press photo and whether or not they look like hipsters or douchebags.

Old Ras XII is possibly the best beer I've ever had, at least it was when I was more of a stout fan

Totally forgot that the new album by Basement came out last week. It's an emo record with big, chunky grunge riffs and Pitchfork haaaaated it, so you know it's great! Highly recommended if you like Title Fight, Balance and Composure, Superheaven or, like, Nirvana. Also big ups to apache slomo for recommending the new Ship Thieves record. Nothing like some good old-fashioned rifftastic punk rock! Also also, I finally got around to the latest Intronaut record and it is seriously KILLER. WOW. Hugely recommended for fans of the Baroness/Mastodon sludge-prog hybrid thing.
