Nobody wants CDs anymore because you can get mp3s anywhere now. Once you rip the music off of a CD, what do you have? A beer coaster. Tapes ARE cheaper to make, smaller (which makes them easier to buy and sell at gigs), and bring back the nostalgic notion of listening to an album all the way through without skipping tracks. I think people are becoming more attracted to the analog formats now that we're living in such a *~DiGiTAL WORLD~*

Just a heads up to broke LA folk who want to see them play next week but don't have the 70 bucks Live Nation is currently charging for a ticket: hit up stubhub or other second tier ticketing websites. I found a ticket for 20 bucks and there were many others still available.

And to make matters worse, tickets for the shows are out-of-control expensive. I wanted to catch the one at Hollywood Bowl and drunkenly hang out in the nosebleeds with some friends, but even up there in the woods seats are like $50 a pop. Count me out.

Not loving the song, but anyone whining about the lyrics needs to find something more important to complain about,

April 5, 2015 on Tame Impala – “‘Cause I’m A Man”
So with Tidal, a few of "egoless" artists at the top get a piece of the action and get to refill their champagne flutes. Great. Lars Ulrich can finally rest easy fifteen years later. But until there's a way for average-Joe-indie to get in on the action, I don't see how this service is really for the musicians.

Still slightly more admirable than Taylor Swift threatening and suing all of her fan-artists out of existence.

This is an especially unfortunate time to be a working musician. Which is a really saying something.

This song doesn't NEED to be the song of the summer, but with blogs like Stereogum hyping it constantly (this is the 3rd article covering it so far) it will be. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.

March 6, 2015 on Carly Rae Jepsen – “I Really Like You” Video (Feat. Tom Hanks)
I think his previous 10.0 was unwarranted because to my ears, it was undeserving of the perfect score it received. People seem to fall on two sides of the fence with Kanye: thinking he's either God or an imbecile. While I definitely lean toward the latter, I would never say the man doesn't work hard - he hustles harder than almost anyone in the pop world right now. Does that mean what he's doing will have a lasting impression on music as a whole? We'll let history decide. What I find hard to understand is why his defenders are always so vigilant. Dude doesn't need you to be that way, he'll be mega-successful regardless. You guys are just feeding his insane ego and pumping air into his ever-inflating god-delusion (which might be your intention?) And by questioning people who don't buy into his act, you forget the basic rule of music: it's subjective. Kanye is a take it or leave it kind of pop star and I've chosen to leave it. Aside from a few key tracks on Late Registration (thanks to Jon Brion) I've never heard anything worth supporting.
