If this is true, then it's gross.

Scruffygum. Follow me. I'm working on a pool party playlist. The kind of pool party where fistfights break out, and everyone ends up pregnant or with swimmer's ear.

I thought about you on Tuesday, Bloc. My local brewery is starting to brew sours, and I began the process of brewing mead with various things I foraged from the woods.

I was doing unbidden squats and fucking chest passes with that shit. Couldn't stop it, just had to. My arms are straight fire. And rubber. Rubber fire.

May 1, 2015 on Disclosure – “Bang That”
I'm pretty sure they're right up your alley. They straddle the line between punk and hardcore (with borderline metal vocals, says the non metal-head), but manage to make intensely intelligent music. And they're the kind of band that'll throw a flute solo in or write 13 minute long songs about each animal of the Chinese zodiac, because fuck it.

David Comes to Life is what I've been thinking about since I first heard the details of The Most Lamentable Tragedy. For me it's a positive parallel. Dimed Out actually reminded me a little of Queen of Hearts, in its straight up brutal but affirming brashness, with a strain of unashamed beauty coming through at just the right moment.

I accidently downvoted you there. Not sure how, I clicked on the page in a different spot and your little +1 went away. I just froze and stared at it, trying to figure out the physics of the whole thing. Sure enough, when I rolled over the vote buttons it said I had already voted. I've been betrayed by my own mouse.

I'm already planning pool parties around this song. I don't even have a pool. I'm gonna have to crash someone else's pool. I don't care because THIS SONG DEMANDS IT.

I just listened to this while throwing extra large cinder blocks out of the bed of an F-150 into a pile of more cinder blocks. I've never felt more alive.

May 1, 2015 on Disclosure – “Bang That”
As someone who grew up into a Christian faith that I couldn't fully embrace but also couldn't abandon, Brand New was such an important band for me. So much of me was in their songs: directionless angst, fear of a omnipotent god, fear of there being no god, sexual guilt, growing up too early. I still haven't gotten over many of those things, so Brand New still matters to me. I really appreciate the love SG has been showing the band. I know they're still unfashionable in some circles, but so many of us owe so much to them. Sappiness over. Time to go for a drive and scream along to Deja Entendu.

Hudson Mohawke "Ryderz" Brand New "Mene" Those are the two that have been stuck in my head this week. Not (necessarily) at the same time.

The real question here is who will produce it. Will it sound like Danger Mouse had his dirty little paws all over it? Or will it sound bland, like recent Dan did it himself? Or will Dan to use a time machine to produce it 11 years ago so that it'll sound gritty and interesting?

I always assumed BlocHer was your wife. Now I think maybe she's your daughter. Or maybe Chris Hansen needs to show up in YOUR kitchen.

Those music-box breakdowns are genius. Pretty excited for new music from these guys.

Black Keys already did it. On an actual CD, I might add.

April 23, 2015 on Marilyn Manson’s New CD Is A PlayStation Disc
Sometimes I feel like modern pop music is just a big pedophile sting. I'm afraid I'm gonna hit play on one of these videos and Chris Hansen is gonna walk into my kitchen and ask what I was expecting to watch.

Feels like high school all over again. I'm gonna pass on the new Panic! so I can go listen to that new Brand New a million times.

All I can think of is Birdman sitting alone in a boardroom rubbing his hands together and nodding slowly while his plan comes to fruition.
