Static Tensions and Spiral Shadow are both killer albums for anyone interested in that whole kinda-metal kinda-hardcore kinda-hard rock Southern sludge thing. I know that makes them sound like followers of a trend but honestly they had a really unique thing going with crazy inventive drumming and unusual harmonies, well worth checking out.

That doesn't make any sense to me. Nothing about Lemonade is trippy or weird or 420-specific. Again, I like the visual album! I'm not trying to trash it, but when I'm blazed and I want to watch something ridiculous, I'm never going to reach for Lemonade. Watching The Wall while stoned, on the other hand, can straight up give you PTSD.

Man, I dig Lemonade and I'm not even a huge Pink Floyd fan, but no way does Lemonade come close to The Wall as a movie.

System of a Down and Deftones. I've also seen people ride for Korn's first album but I don't understand it myself.

My girlfriend and I played Fuck Marry Kill recently, and for Blink we landed on fuck Travis, marry Mark, and kill Tom. Looks like Blink themselves came to the same conclusion.

I saw these guys last year and their live show was a lot heavier than the debut record suggested. I'm glad to hear that their recorded output is getting heavier and nastier as well. This is my kinda stuff.

Jay Z himself shows up in the video for Sandcastles, looking all sad and ashamed, which lends credence to the idea that this is autobiographical. Jay doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would go for an idea like "I'm going to make a fictional album about infidelity, but strongly imply that it's about you, thus making you look like America's biggest asshole. Cool? Also, I want you to appear in the video for the piano ballad looking sorry as hell."

Once upon a time they gave Bjork's Homogenic a 9.9 but it seems to have disappeared from their archives completely.

Nah this has been a thing since DJ Shadow sampled Bjork, if not earlier. Kendrick sampled Beach House and Mr Twin Sister on GKMC, Frank Ocean sampled MGMT, and so on. They're interesting tidbits for indie nerds like us, but this is just what producers do- find little snippets of music wherever they can that fit into the overall vision of a song. There are plenty of non-indie samples on Beyonce's record as well. At least it's not as egregious as Lupe Fiasco ripping "Float On" by Modest Mouse wholesale and turning it into a far crappier song.

I liked Infinite Arms a lot more than most people, but Mirage Rock did absolutely nothing for me. This is pretty good, sounds almost like a return to the Cease to Begin sound.

I was surprised by how much I liked that Thin Lizzy song. And whoever put on Godsmack, A+ troll job.

If you have several hours to kill, The Thing in Greenpoint is completely unsorted, massive, and most everything is 2 bucks. You can get lost in there, it's a wonder to behold. I also like Generation Records for punk/hardcore/metal, and Other Music for new indie releases. Check out ohmyrockness-dot-com for concert listings in a readable format, from DIY to huge. Shea Stadium is a personal favorite DIY-ish spot for me.

I don't know if I'd call Spring Breakers a masterpiece, but it was a provocative and fun takedown of American party culture. The Rihanna video seems like it loses the satire in favor of the exact thing Spring Breakers was making fun of.

If we're shouting out our favorite labels, I gotta give it up for Run for Cover, Relapse, and Topshelf
