I'm convinced that all the good reviews is some sort of elaborate joke

November 12, 2015 on Metalcore Band Says Coldplay Are “Jackin Their Steez” On New Album Cover
The Neighborhood song "Afraid" has some of the worst lyrics of all time and is super annoying. They play it all the time on local ALT ROCK radio (my office-mate likes the station). I saw them live a couple years ago (at a festival with no set overlaps) and they were very meh. Sweater Weather is a fantastic title and a very listenable song though!

One of my favorite bands (Streetlight Manifesto) was/is signed to Victory and essentially told fans to steal their music cause they weren't gonna get paid for it unless you handed them cash at a show. Also Victory wouldn't let the singer/main songwriter of the group release a solo acoustic version of their album. heres what they posted a couple years back:

Maybe the whole concept album thing turns people off? Shame cause Empty Days and Letters are two of the best albums in the genre. Wasn't too crazy about the new one after my first listen, but the second half is pretty dope

Wish they didn't edit down the interview, but cool article about that song if you're in to semi-technical stuff

Just FYI, the mechanical license required to release a cover song (either for profit or not for profit) is compulsory. Anyone can release a taytay song cover as long as her camp gets the 9.1 cents per sale or download/.00000whatever per stream. In this case it seems like she's fine with him just releasing it which id guess would negate the need for any license but give her the power to pull the whole thing if she changes her mind about it being cool.

Thanks for this list. I ended up seeing Benjamin Booker last night over Belle and Sebastian/Tycho based on this write up and thought he was absolutely incredible

I enjoy soundcloud for what it is, but gotta say the interface is garbage for finding specific tracks. Like, mp3 player from 2002 bad

Kinda bummed this has a fall/end of summer release date. FIDLAR (along with MVOTC and Yeezus) was my go-to for summer of 2013. Man, good times...

There's a tweet in between the top two about a shirt he used to wear a lot. Decent possibility that he was referring to a shirt with "OFWGKTA" on it and not the actual collective Heres those two tweets in new context: "I ALWAYS HAD A SICK SHIRT I WISH I STILL HAD THAT CHEETAH SHIRT THAT WAS COOL AND THAT PURPLE BUTTON UP I LOVED THAT SHIRT SO MUCH... although its no more, those 7 letters are forever."

This is really disappointing. I know he's been performing with a band lately, but cmon I'm sure there are plenty of broke jazz artists who would be down to tour with him.

I still haven't gotten over how they removed the star button. Sure, it's nice to save albums instead of making playlists for each one, but that feature shouldn't have straight up replaced the star. Having to add it to the Starred Playlist suckz.
