Quick q though: is the singer on the Highasakite song "Samurai Swords" saying "I'm McLovin"?

Just got a brand new Darkthrone hat and a bag of mushrooms, and I'm about to take a little road trip down to Richmond with two beautiful girls and one beautiful dog. Also, this Coney Island Home Plate Pale Ale is tasty and y'alls Weekend Party Playlist additions this week kick even more ass than usual! America is pretty cool sometimes.

Interesting. My faves are "Identikit" and "Present Tense", and "Tinker Tailor..." is the only song that I just don't understand at all.

The ghouls and goblins bit isn't even the most embarassing part, that would be "Everybody wanna know what my Achilles' heel is? ...Loooooove!"

To be fair Corona is easily my beer of choice if all the other options are also cheap macro beer.

Thanks! It's a sick, sad world out there. I think that's actually the first Silver Mount Zion album, the one with "For Wanda" on it. I never followed them like I did Godspeed but I do know that first album is awesome. 13 Angels Stand Guard 'round Your Bed is one of my all time post-rock songs.

I'm reading that Ben Ratliff book at the moment myself! I have mixed feelings, it seems to go back and forth between genuine insight and pseudo-intellectual wankery. The entire section about extreme metal in the "Sadness" chapter kinda had me going "Huh??" But on the whole, it's got me doing more deep listening and checking out a wide variety of music I wasn't familiar with before. If you can tolerate occasional helpings of vague-yet-verbose bullshit, I recommend it to curious music nerds.

I feel bad for Stefan's vocal cords, this record has even more unhinged screaming than the first one! "Old Wounds" sounds like a full-on ass-kicking, the P4K review was spot-on with the McLusky namecheck (wish they pushed the record above an 8.0 though). This is gonna be in heavy rotation all summer.

That review was so dumb, I could easily hum several Slowdive songs off the top of my head.

Woah, that's quite a lineup. Horrendous into Wormed sounds like an intense way to start the day! Hope you find a way to get baked unless that's not your jam in which case do whatever.

let's be real, Hail to the Thief and In Rainbows are not excellent album titles either

I believe the original lineup has now recorded more albums post-reunion than they did in the "original" days. I haven't heard the new one yet obviously, but I'll still go ahead and put forward the possibly-controversial opinion that their post-reunion run not only stacks up, but is actually better than their 80s run. Don't get me wrong, I love me some 80s Dino (especially YLAOM holy shit) but Beyond and Farm have some of my favorite songs ever by any band.

May 25, 2016 on Dinosaur Jr. – “Tiny”
This album kicks ass. I was afraid it might be too similar to the self-titled but there is definitely some darker, sludgier stuff on here that makes something like "Dark Days" sound lighthearted. "The Coast" and "Old Wounds" are a great one-two punch right in the middle of the record. So glad they're getting more recognition with this one.

That's my favorite Cure song! Great start to a great playlist Someone in the Gregorian chant comments mentioned the Bulgarian State Television Female Choir and that is some craaazy-sounding shit, and yet fits perfectly on mid-80s 4AD, so I just had to add it this week. All of this 90s talk reminds me that the first CD I ever bought for myself was Chumbawamba's Tubthumper. Fun fact: Chumbawamba are a surprisingly awesome, eclectic band but that album really doesn't stand the test of time and *that song* is possibly their all-time worst, though I inexplicably adored it at the time.

Dude ISIS is like 308,000 people (and that's the most generous estimate) out of 1.7 billion Muslims. That's less than .02% so just get outta here with that "truth about Islam" mess

I had assumed that Holden was trans (some trans people go by "they/them") but that doesn't actually seem to be the case, so I'm confused as well. If it's just an affectation, that's kinda shitty. Like a lot of self-proclaimed anarchists I've known (and I've known quite a few), Holden seems a little insufferable, but the music is great so that's all that matters.
