I love “Run Away With Me” a lot, but the rest of the singles so far have been decent at best.

“Fired Up” can bring me to tears, so there’s that.

Mmmm, yeah, this is good. Mmmmm. Will almost definitely be in my top 3 come year’s end.

That girl probably ten seconds in was like “I guess I have to commit to this now.”

This is probably the best song from the album, FYI

Man, I made the Spoon comparison in the stream thread and got downvoted. :(

Damn, this shit is hot. Sam Herring is one of the coolest dudes in the game.

July 17, 2015 on Trouble Knows Me (Future Islands’ Samuel T. Herring & Madlib) – “Trouble Knows Me”

That’s because Being There is one of the best goddamn rock records of the 90’s.

I’m gonna comment again and say: this album is like Wilco doing Spoon.

“Impossible Germany” is arguably the band’s masterpiece (one of ’em at least)

I’m so excited this exists. And I think it’s really good too! Excited to see some of the rougher edges, similar to the Tweedy album. (Granted, this all comes from a huge Wilco fan who will defend Sky Blue Sky hardcore even.)
“You Satellite” is incredible.

AAH this is awesome! I loved Under Colour very very much. And that album art is badass. So excited.

July 14, 2015 on Q&A: Protomartyr On Their New Album The Agent Intellect + “Why Does It Shake?”

I had a burning little hope that Chemical Brothers might get a pick, I’ve been loving the singles so far. I’m a newbie to Jason Isbell and I’ll check him out now though!

I’m actually really pleased to hear that re: Beach House. They’ve talked in the past about how they’re not interested in “changing their sound,” so if they were to do some dramatic evolution it would register with me as insincere or something. Plus, who doesn’t want another Bloom in their life??

If I could look like Shamir when I smoke, I’d take up smoking. That dude just looks straight up cool (it probably has more to do with how he already looks / carries himself than the cigarette though). But I’d probably look more like Mac, but dorkier, so nah.

YES to Dan Deacon. That album just flew under everyone’s radar or something. It’s killer.

As a lover of “OctaHate,” I’m pretty let down by The Fool.

June 16, 2015 on Album Of The Week: Sorority Noise Joy, Departed

Ditto to all the comments here — one of the great things about Foals is how consistently they evolve. This sounds like another great step. TLF and Holy Fire were both excellent; Foals is one of the best straight-up-rock bands working today if you ask me.

June 16, 2015 on Foals – “What Went Down”

Close to the Edge was the album that got me interested in music at the tender age of ten. It’ll always be a special work for me and those three compositions are really embedded in my consciousness. It’s brainy but so filled with feeling.

Also very happy to see Magnification so high. It’s pretty dorky, but those strings really add a lot.

Impeccable. This is my favorite Sufjan tune, period.
