I’m still trying to wrap my head (or ears, rather) around this release week. SO many good ones today: Merchandise, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Rustie, The Bug, Ty Segall… cannot wait to fire up Spotify on my way home from work and blast the hell out of as many as I can.
Oh happy day!
I already am looking forward to the Fall… this just makes it even more unbearable.
Completely agreed on the summer-time release. I’m just itching to get the hell out of work so I can roll down my windows, fire up the album via Spotify, and have an exhilarating ride home.
Damn… I’m taking my sister to see Gaga on the Chicago date and was hoping I’d get to witness Baby Metal first-hand. Alas, they aren’t on our date… instead we get the group Crayon Pop, who I’m sure you’re familiar with Tom considering your knowledge on the K-Pop scene. I’m sure it’ll be interesting nonetheless.
Can he be any more ignorant? There are plenty of “aggressive” bands out there, but apparently, he is just really bad at finding them and new music in general. It’s the same as people living in the past and claiming that all new music is “crap.” With all the outlets to find new music nowadays, I just find it baffling that people can still have this argument.
I was initially nervous on whether I would like this or not – especially after seeing the first comment on Soundcloud that proclaimed, “THAT DROP” (ugh) – but I’m super duper digging this track! Really hope she plans on releasing a new album this year.
Aw man :( this does indeed suck. I’m seeing Basement in August but unfortunately, Ovlov aren’t on the Chicago dates of the tour, which I was initially bummed about… but now I’m even MORE bummed.
Agreed. I’ve had it on repeat since I stepped into work this morning. It’s fantastic.
Another one I’m excited to check out on my way home – that wasn’t mentioned in the list above – is Kitten’s self-titled debut. I caught them on Charli XCX’s tour last fall and have been keeping my eye on them ever since.
Sweet! It definitely is fan-submitted footage, btw. They asked their fans on Facebook to submit videos of themselves opening up the Record Store Day 10″ and listening to it for the first time.
Wow, fantastic piece Tom!
Rancid will always hold a very special place in my heart. I started with “AOCTW” then promptly picked up “Let’s Go” afterwards, both records changed my life for the better.
I got the pleasure of seeing them for the 4th time at last year’s Riot Fest and I can proudly say they still kill it. I was in absolute glory for their hour long set.
