I can't say I really expected them to mention Jethro Tull, but it would've been nice.

August 23, 2016 on American Football – “I’ve Been Lost For So Long”
It's not quite as transcendent as "Break" or even "Picture This", but I'm happy to hear anything new from these guys. And a full-length to look forward to is icing on the cake.

I want to love No Problem, but Lil Wayne really tries his hardest to ruin it. And that's coming from a Weezy fan. He sounds half asleep.

It was me! I don't know if I got everyone's suggestions in the end, but I added most of the tracks mentioned in the comments to a public Spotify playlist. Find me at 'unknownsignal'.

Getting the original lineup back together would be fun I guess, but I'm honestly still waiting for that Machina remix/resequencing/whatever-it-is. That album is highly underrated and I'm curious to hear it in its "proper" context. Also I'm not really confident that reuniting the original lineup will re-ignite Corgan's muse and have him making interesting music again, but who knows.

I truly hate the "socially liberal, fiscally conservative" mantra. People want to avoid the icky bigotry of social conservatism, but fail to realize that conservative economics are also based on bigotry. It's all part and parcel of the same philosophy, which is "fuck you, got mine". Deregulated markets led to the mortgage crisis, it's not rocket surgery!

August 12, 2016 on Killer Mike Claims That Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Are “The Same Thing”
In a different year, with a different GOP candidate, I might have agreed, or at least been able to see where he's coming from. But for me personally, Neoliberal Imperialist Oligarch vs Literally A Fascist is a pretty easy choice.

I do like Gridlink, had no idea they were from Jersey! I suppose Danzig and Overkill are also worth talking about, just not so much these days...

August 5, 2016 on Dillinger Escape Plan Break Up
I've always liked Revolver more than Sgt. Pepps, which usually gets the "best album EVAR" love. I feel like the Sergeant starts to lose steam with Mr. Kite (which is just... ugh) and doesn't really find it again until A Day in the Life (which is obviously genius). Then again, even Mr. Kite is less annoying than Yellow Submarine, which is tied with Run for Your Life for least favorite Beatles song. But Yellow Sub aside, Revolver is aces from start to finish- She Said She Said and And Your Bird Can Sing are some of my favorite songs, the guitar tone on those is just flawless.

I liked Shelter well enough, but it did sound a lot like Slowdive crossed with Sigur Ros. This is much better.

"Break" is my SOTS as well. J-pop (and pop in general) is not usually my jam, but it's a brilliant ode to slacking off and doing jack shit, which is what summer (and life, really) is all about. "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want" (Calvin and Hobbes) has been my life motto for as long as I can remember, and this song is basically that sentiment in sparkly slacker-pop form. Plus Japanese rapping!!

Zig Zag Zig is mostly noise experiments and ambient noodling though. If you're into Kool for the rapping, it's thoroughly skippable.

What's everyone's favorite J solo? For me, it's easily "I Don't Wanna Go There". That shit is 9 minutes long and a solid 5 of them are just face-melting shredwork.

"Almost Ready" is in my top 5 songs of all time. So happy to see it get a shout-out. The transition into "Crumble" is also glorious.

Wolf in White Van was quite good but damn was it ever dark and sad. Even being familiar with Darnielle's lyrics, I was not expecting it to be so harrowing. Dude's a great writer.
