this video is super excellent. social commentary and beauty haven't lived in such close quarters in a LONG TIME. WE EXIST.

Carl, what you've written here is a perfect, absolutely perfect, dissection of the White Stripes. i've encountered MANY people who write them off (read: haters) who don't understand the simplicity and the concept of the band. you hit the nail on the head and let the cat out of the bag, over and over. everything about this is aces. it's fucking magic. this list is pretty much singles, for the most part (and all excellent ones at that) which i am annoyed by and still not surprised by. my favorite due to Jack's ability to rhyme words, use syllables, have breath control and just the fucking riff is "Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine" - probably the most underrated White Stripes song of all time. that and "Blue Orchid" should be on here because it kicks fucking ass.

Rape Me and Dumb are among my all time favorite Nirvana tracks. Cobain's writing is so honest and this band just, rocks so fucking hard. i love Bleach a lot. whenever i'm feeling anxious or angry i just turn on School, Blew or Love Buzz. i wont lie, i spend most of my time with Live At Reading. i can never get over how young Grohl was at the time and Novoselic's loose bass strings are my boyfriend. so yeah, i'd say i'm a Nirvana fan. i love the early stuff, i love it all. (also, if you haven't indulged in Azerrad's Come As You Are: The Story Of Nirvana, you'll fall even harder.)

Earl is, just, really great. the subtle and obvious hints of Odd Future up and down the track listing are the best delivery OF efforts yet. this record was worth the wait.

also, the fact that Hockley-Smith references Mary Karr is major. everyone should read her books. KU-DOSE.

July 20, 2013 on Backtrack: WU LYF Go Tell Fire To The Mountain
i don't remember why i checked out WU LYF in the first place (likely it was that album art) but im sure glad i did. i had the pleasure of seeing them twice, both times at Washington DC's Rock And Roll Hotel. the crowds were completely different both times. and the second time i went, i went with my roommate who had converted to a full on fangirl. we went over to the merch table and i ended up buying a poster that they had made up - of the album art and some lyrics from the title track. (he said they made only like 150, or something like that?) it was before the show and Ellery Roberts was standing behind the merch table eating chicken wings. (his speaking voice kind of sounds like his singing voice, which is totally weird.) the chicken grease and sauce was all over his hands. i was awkward about it and asked him to sign my poster. so after he dried his hands, he left a signature that is mostly indecipherable except for the word "Ellery" and, i think, a heart. its in a frame on my wall. it's one of my most prized possessions, next to Go Tell Fire To The Mountain - because its an incredible fucking record. im so happy i can live the whole rest of my life with it.
