February 19, 2016 on Waxahatchee – “With You” (Jessica Simpson Cover)
From the P4k review of erykah badu's recent mixtape (http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/21319-but-you-caint-use-my-phone/?utm_campaign=search&utm_medium=site&utm_source=search-ac), this is one of the wildest things I've ever read: "Badu thought of a story Dilla's mother told her about her son's dying days, when she would find him having conversations with an unseen companion. One time, when she asked him who he was talking to, he said it was Ol' Dirty Bastard, who had died in 2004. As Badu recounted years later, Dilla explained to his mom: “He was telling me what bus to get on when I cross over. He said, ‘Don’t get on the red bus, get on the white bus. The red bus looks fun, but that’s not the one.’”"

Man, Rihanna's so great - certainly there's more interesting material out there than Lame Impala that she could do a cover of.

That's actually based on the following scene from the equally great Leos Carax film Mauvais Sang: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMHXugVlzSw

Tallulah - it's very important that any list of Allo Darlin' songs includes Tallulah.

Yeah "Dear Sons and Daughters" for my money is the best song Krug ever wrote and one of the very best songs of the 2000s.

Spencer Krug is the best Spencer I know of (me included)! This and Shut Up I Am Dreaming are like the peak of mid-2000s indie rock.

Couldn't be more stoked about that new World Is a Beautiful Place album - the two tracks I've heard from it are both incredible and I'll contend Whenever, If Ever is absolutely the best product of the "Emo Revival" up to this point.

"Their fate makes me wonder which of today’s Next Big Things we will remember with such ambivalence" - do you guys remember Cults? Also, I know this an unpopular opinion and he's probably beyond the point of being merely a next big thing, but I feel like Young Thug, while having gem verses and redeemable moments in his discography (although the one I always go back to is a Boosie feature so not even YT himself), is like this bland convergence of all sorts of otherwise exciting Atlanta rap threads (Future's descendant, hedonistic sadness, Migos' toying with rap cadences, Juicy J's zonked out humor and pop aspirations, etc) that is ephemerally interesting and altogether unmemorable for doing none of those things as well as Future, Migos, Juicy J, etc does them. IDK, that's probably just how it plays to my ears though.

Hehehe, somebody's been listening to a bit too much 1989 recently, I see.

September 1, 2015 on Astronauts, etc. – “Shake It Loose”
Nahhhhh, the cover of Minor Threat is a picture of Ian's brother Alec (also a great part of the DC punk scene). My roommates ex grew up in DC and said she used to go to the Mackaye's house when she was a kid because her close friend was their younger sister. Ian and Alec apparently chased her and her friend around with rubber bands a lot when they were teens. That story had me wil'ing out for a while.
