Jeffrey and SS3 are my favorite Thug projects because they're short and sweet.

I'm always on the lookout for new pianists. Craig Taborn will do the trick, thanks!

Can we talk about Horrendous the band instead though?

February 22, 2017 on The Chainsmokers & Coldplay – “Something Just Like This”
Well this is just lovely. Especially after reading his little note, this really has a lot of personality.

If it's anything like this song I need to listen to it immediately.

February 22, 2017 on Walter Martin – “Hey Matt” (Feat. Matt Berninger)
I've always loved John Darnielle backed by keys. "Westside View Apartment Suite" is probably my favorite later-career MTN Goats song. So I'm really excited about this and I love this first song.

This is the first time I've ever listened to them and now I'm gonna listen to their back catalog.

February 22, 2017 on At The Drive In – “Incurably Innocent”
I've heard Tim Darcy. It's good, not really like Ought at all. It's more like Darcy's take on a Velvet Underground, Yo La Tengo-esque psychedelic 60s rock.

I haven't seen that Beatles film, but I kinda feel like the Lemonade film should have won Best Music Film. It's essential for the album experience, in my opinion.

Fuck. Yes. Singles remains one of my most-listened 2014 albums. Sounds like their sound is getting bigger too. Can't wait to hear it live.

February 1, 2017 on Future Islands – “Ran”
The new Elbow is IMO their best in years... So if that's your kinda thing don't let it slip by.

Yeah but this isn't one of those songs. Do his sarcastic, bitter songs completely invalidate him from making genuinely sincere ones?

January 30, 2017 on Father John Misty – “Two Wildly Different Perspectives” Video
Oh hell yes. This is worth money for sure. I don't even get into live albums, but this band ABSOLUTELY rules live over the studio recordings (which of course are perfect in their own right). I'm especially excited to have a live "Old Friends" with all the harmonies and such.

January 21, 2017 on Stream Pinegrove’s New Live Album Elsewhere
This thread might be dead by now but I've been thinking about this. How many artists out there completely ape 80s pop and get a pass? There have been way more musicians that I listen to and think "Wow, this is EXACTLY 80s pop" than "Wow, this is EXACTLY 70s funk." So why is it more egregious for an artist to resurrect a less familiar style than one already firmly in the zeitgeist?

December 15, 2016 on Watch Childish Gambino’s Funky, Delirious Tonight Show Performance
Am am I the only one who absolutely loves Ab-Soul's stupid lines? It's like watching B-movies. So stupid, but there's no way he doesn't realize himself that he's rapping such gleefully dumb lines. It's all about the self-awareness. So yeah I'm loving the shit out of DWTW that's all.

December 14, 2016 on J. Cole Is Making Comfort-Food Rap, And That’s OK
Michael, I just wanna say that I don't listen to much metal, but your writing exudes so much passion and feeling, it does so much to push me to listen to more. Seriously. Even if I haven't listened to metal all month, I read every Black Market post because the writing is always so passionate and so good. So thank you. I have a lot of homework to do now!

Absolutely true. I also have a soft spot for The Way Up and some of his smaller ensemble stuff like Unity Band (not so much Unity Group though).

I haven't listened to much new jazz this year, but I really enjoyed the album Shift by Logan Richardson. Really cool new sax player, with Pat Metheny in the band doing some of the more interesting stuff he's done recently. Sometimes I think Metheny makes a better sideman?

I'm not very good at objectively rating verses because I don't usually study them very hard. I gotta mention Isaiah Rashad's first verse on "Wat's Wrong," I enjoy it even more than Kendrick's excellent verse.

Thank god, some solidarity re: The Sun's Tirade. That album is straight up addictive to me. It's my close #2, just after Tribe.

Upvote for "Drippin," JEFFERY is great but I think this is the best Thugga song this year!

Looking at these comments and votes, maybe I shouldn't say this, but Cole seems like a pretty cool dude to me. He doesn't have a lot of style, sure. He doesn't really make waves with his talent, sure. But he seems to "keep it real" for the most part and he stays out of a lot of the stupid bullshit many other big name rappers get into.
