The following three playlists (in my profile now) were specifically designed for late night drives. A couple from shows out of state and for twin tea (get it?) was for when my friends & I drove to Coachella in '09: For Twin Tea Spectrum Spectre Jupiter & Well Beyond The Infinite (The Adventures of Keechie The Observer) Jupiter is one of my favorite playlists I've ever made. Was overly inspired back in '08 and cranked out that one. I'll keep posting old playlists, but long drives have been an inspiration for the majority of my more ambitious playlists.

passivepinetree asked in the Ed Sheeran puts ppl to sleep thread if I would make a Spotify account (Tidal was not an option). So I did. Follow me on Spotify: raptorjesus311 I got a few classic playlists up and working on some new ones. I wanna bring back Remixtape. I got a playlist called "New Now Vol 1" that I'll likely revisit a few months at a time as new tunes I like come out. But by all means, if you want me to make a playlist, just ask. Have a great weekend!

@silas - The Gummy Awards in 2011 is a good place to start. Then the Premature Evaluation: The Hold Steady "Teeth Dreams" is where it really took a turn for the worse/best (?) @donaldtijuana - you cut off 1 head of the 2 headed hydra and it comes back with 3. This one goes deeper down than we previously imagined.

It happens every year. A record is released late in the previous year and I don't notice its genius until the following year when it's too late to put it on my previous year's best of list. Last year was Blood Orange. This year has been Arca. Also I think that character in the video has a staph infection.

THAT much closer to a "Black Ballerina" music video. To any Ariel Pink fans, I just discovered Soko's music yesterday. Specifically the song "Monster Love" that features Pink blew me away. Still diving into the album, but it sounds great. I recommend it.

Was listening to "Dragonslayer" this weekend and couldn't believe it was his last. 2009 was so long ago! (I know he's Moonface now, but Sunset Rubdown is where it's at for me).

(replying to own post so blochead isn't alone) I realize "Everyone Choose Sides" isn't the penultimate track, but it's the second to last track on the vinyl C side. "This Is Not What You Had Planned" kicks off the D-side as the album's true closer, then goes into the extra bits. Had a friend bring over the Meadowlands on vinyl over the weekend and it was my first time seeing it on vinyl. Honestly, I'm very unfamiliar with the album and got excited thinking they had a hard cut out as their penultimate track. Just yr basic sequencing nerd jump-to-conclusions business. blochead, you're singlehandedly going to have this site ready and prepared for this new Wrens album. Well done sir.

"Everyone Choose Sides" is the jam. Proof that pulling the plug is better than a fade out... especially in the penultimate slot ;)

"Motion to Rejoin" was it for BML. Two albums and they out. They nailed their aesthetic so why bother trying to top perfection? Both of their albums combined and on loop is a great sleep mix too.

I'd have to subscribe to Spotify first, but it's not a bad idea! I'll look into it and start going through my playlist files. I'll see if I can get something churning by end of the week. You sure I'm not making a huge mistake teaming with Spotify over Tidal? You guys better not lead me astray!

Blast! Was worried that song got lost in the mix. Easy on the condescension.

I know they were Saturday, but The Cribs livestreamed on Sunday and holy shit they were incredible. Also incredibly drunk, but enough incredible to overcome the inebriation!

Got to see Hop Along open for The War on Drugs recently and they're very good live! I didn't know her brother was the drummer, he was one of the most entertaining people on stage. This was the reminder I needed to check out their new album. They mentioned they had one coming out soon. I was so impressed by the live show that I actually felt compelled to hear it when it gets released. Doesn't happen all the time with opening bands I've never heard of. Glad to see them getting some 'Gum coverage!

At the far right on the top Stereogum bar is a person icon (right of the search icon). Click that to access your profile then click Edit Profile once you're in that. Should be a way to upload an avatar there.
