L7 were a rad grunge/riot grrl band and have nothing to do with Korn or Deftones

So far, I've enjoyed every other album they put out. I love Funeral, found Neon Bible to be mostly boring aside from a couple songs, liked The Suburbs a lot, and then Reflektor was just not at all what I want from Arcade Fire (same with this song, for that matter). Hopefully this pattern bodes well for the next one.

Hmmmmmmm Celebration Rock Acid Rap The Antlers- Familiars Das Racist- Sit Down, Man The Hotelier- Home, Like Noplace Is There That was hard! I had to leave off Good Kid MAAD City, The Monitor, The Seer, Hop Along and White Lung, and all metal. Damn, even a Top 10 would be hard.

Celebration Rock has had 5 years to soundtrack the wild, halcyon nights it speaks of, which is a powerful thing.

I don't get the sense that Tom thinks Japandroids did anything wrong, per se. He even says as much: "This isn’t Japandroids’ fault; they aren’t even American, for fuck’s sake". He's just saying that he personally can't get into the record on the level that he might want to, due to the socio-political climate at the time of its release. I felt a similar way about the movie La La Land. Great movie in a vacuum, but something so earnest and un-cynical would probably have been more enjoyable at a different time.

As always, NPR's puny web player does not go loud enough for this kind of music. That aside, it sounds like Japandroids, which is all I really wanted. I see people grousing about a change in sound, but I'm not really hearing it. I hear a bit more midtempo cuts than before, but then "Younger Us" and "The House That Heaven Built" have never been the sum total of the Japandroids sound. It's still buzzy, wide-eyed guitar rock.

The first time I got stoned was to "Immigrant Song", a classic move, but the first time I got stoned and really, like, NOTICED the music, man, was "Enjoy the Silence" by Depeche Mode.

A good friend introduced me to his music shortly before I took a trip to Nigeria. It is some wild funky shit. RIP.

Not but three years ago, Bonnaroo had Meshuggah, Mastodon, and Deafheaven. Not to mention Kanye, Chance, Elton John, Jack White, Lionel Richie, Frank Ocean, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Vampire Weekend. What the hell happened?

One I haven't seen mentioned yet is Cocteau Twins. Pretty much all their music is perfect for wintertime.

January 10, 2017 on Japandroids – “No Known Drink Or Drug”
If I had to pick one, I guess I'd go with Panorama, mostly because of NIN and Tribe, but neither one is particularly interesting IMO.

People who go to the big festivals don't want to rock out, they just want to dance and chill. Which is why 90% of the artists on the lineup can easily be filed under "dance" or "chill". If you want to rock out, you have to go to something like Shaky Knees or Riot Fest or, like, Deathfest.

I don't know about the whole album, but I was just listening to Genesis/Let There Be Light yesterday and thinking about how fire it still sounds, especially as an opener.

While I was hanging out with my older brother over Xmas break, I played the new Japandroids song, and he claimed it sounded like Irish rock and ordered us to watch the video for "Rose Tattoo" by Dropkick Murphys. True story.

I still need to give Atrocity Exhibition a few more spins to decide how I feel about it. Twisted Fantasy is definitely the best of Kanye's post-808s output, but I still don't really love it. I feel like it peaks with "Monster" and most of the second half is kind of a slog. Shrug- I miss the old Kanye, chop up the soul Kanye.

I love the new Tribe, as well as Vince, but RTJ3 is everything I want from a rap album. Nothing since TPAB has grabbed me quite as whole-heartedly. If it had come out in say, October, it would easily be in my top 5 of the year.

Danny also appears on Exquire's "Last Huzzah" remix with Despot, Kool AD, Heems, and El-P. One of my favorite posse cuts of all time. Gives me hope that the Das Racist boys will show up on a RTJ track someday.
