In Arctic Monkeys defense, they were playing big British gigs before their first album was released.

Good stuff! Sounds like an album centerpiece and looks as though it is at track 6. Really excited for new Forest Swords.

Every time I thought I had reached the "lower bill" big names kept popping up. Crazy seeing Phoenix on line 6, considering they headlined Coachealla 4 years ago.

The only "artist" Iggy should've sued is Jet.

Has anyone considered that Kendrick may just drop a single with an album announcement?

Cool seeing "Fucken Problems" get mentioned. Gave that song a listen yesterday to remind myself why I love it so much. It'll only become more legendary as Drake & Kendrick get bigger. To think they were once on the same VERY GOOD song. But interesting history with that song... despite it's popularity, neither Drake nor Rocky performed it live when I saw them (back to back at ACL). Kendrick is the only one I've seen do that song live, and he performed his verse TWICE. Soooo did Rocky and Drake yield "Fucken Problem" to Kendrick? If so that's all the evidence I need to support Kendrick > Drake

They hyperlinked back to this article, but didn't reference the site by name. Even though the writers here are up front about when they're using something the other site got first... Even when Stereogum got the guacamole news story in their inbox 4 hours before the other site posted the story... they still cited the other site! They're very on top of things here even when they don't have to be.

Nice! I got my email on Monday that my order had shipped. May have the whole thing by Friday! I stupidly ordered their first EP along with the pre-order, so I've had to wait three months to get that on vinyl. Pro Tip: Make pre-orders separate orders because anything else you bundle with it won't ship until the pre-order.

Chris I'm with you on the Reeses. When Easter rolls around and those miniature cups are floating around the world I basically turn into Pac Man.

You're old fashioned. We've been in an era where we have announcements for announcements.

I had always heard white lighters were bad luck, but didn't know about that connection. I guess it makes a little more sense why my friends referred to white lighters as "Jesus lighters" now...

Pulp Fiction is GOAT status. Just the other day I was talking about editing something and suggesting mentioning the ending first, then tell the story. I referenced it as, "We could Pulp Fiction it." I think that's a good indication of GOAT status when you can use a work of art as a verb.

I'm poking fun of the coverage obvs, but ever since I heard the title track, I've been super amped for "Pure Comedy" and have no problem getting on board the AOTY train even though I have yet to hear the whole thing. It just strikes me as one of those albums where the artists went all in and left nothing out. I'm just waiting til release day to soak it all in.

Given that he loves digging up the nostalgia, I'll be very disappointed if Jimmy doesn't bring back Nick Burns. Would be beautiful to see an updated 2017 version. Ripe with new computer jokes!

I also feel there hasn't been enough FJM coverage. The least this site could do is post a comprehensive review of the new album so we could finally talk about bloc's friend on this site, for once.

Even though I'll be spending close to $100 at the record store on April 7th, I really hope White Reaper's new one fits the typical bill for AOTW, which is something like: "Shining light on an album from a slightly lesser acknowledged act that could've otherwise been overlooked." I feel White Reaper fits that bill, especially considering you know the other site is giving that Arca album a 9.1 or something.

B4.DA.$$ was also released in January 2015. January always a good way to release an album and have people forget about it. Shit, I remember not knowing it was out until I walked in the record store and saw it on shelves. Glad I picked it up though! I agree the run-up to All-Amerikkkan Badass has felt minimal, even though the music video I saw was fucking amazing and got me all sorts of hyped.

Magic: The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, Hearthstone... You thought Chance was going to plateau with Rock/Paper/Scissors games with fans? Oh no. He's taking spirited 1v1 games to the next level. Only way he'll ever grow as an artist TBH.

There are a few songs on the first Blanck Mass album that may be sort of in step with "Hive Mind". "What You Know" is the longest song on his first album and it has that slow build, but not very close to that beat. Maybe check out HEALTH :: DISCO2 for SALEM's "In Violet" remix. Shorter, but that beat may be closer to what you're seeking. I'll double down on the Clams Casino too. Not as menacing, but Blondes' first EP "Touched" has some extended rhythmic bliss outs. "Moondance" is always a good time... Overall though, you can't go wrong with Benjamin's previous project Fuck Buttons... ever. Definitely give "Tarot Sport" a spin and "Slow Focus" could have some more tracks similar to "Hive Mind" such as the last two tracks ("Stalker" especially). They only ever screamed on their first album, which is still fucken great though.

Chris also thinks that all the great 2007 releases are butt. But go easy on him! He's a good person with good intentions, even if he helps imprison young pop stars like bloc's compadre Joshy said.
