1. Oh yeah, when Zac Brown Band’s Uncaged hit the #2 Billboard album spot exactly two years ago with such a small number of sales, it beat one of the greatest achievements in contemporary music (#2): Frank Ocean’s channel ORANGE. More like a BLACK day.
2. Estelle’s new track sounds a lot like Bey’s “Pretty Hurts”.
Is it cool to like Jack Black again? Because: never has his otherwise overtly hysterical behaviour been more appropriate than in this video. Personal highlight!
Another album of note today: Mr. Dream: The Ultimate in Luxury.
Replace the new Coldplay video with the new one of the criminally underrated Wild Beasts called “Mecca”, and I’m okay with this list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCJ7_NPtNEo
Ultraviolence (not Ultraviolent).
Is Jack White going to become the next permament musician-troll / Wayne Coyne? At least, in his defense, he knows how to apologize sincerely. And to his credit as well, he is not the first interviewed person whose answers are squeezed out and sensationalized by Rolling Stone (cf. Warpaint guitarist / Beyoncé controversy).
“I Turn My Camera On” from Gimme Fiction was the first song that got me into the Spooniverse. Oh man, Britt Daniel’s vocals made me ooze so much!
“Ghost Drumming” – what a great song title (for a song that does not exist yet, I guess)!
Well, the Roots album is pretty solid if not as jaw-dropping as undun. Even better is (Inga) Copeland’s first solo album Because I’m Worth It which had been existed as a stream on Pitchfork last week. That stellar electronic album may have flown under Tom’s radar because Copeland self-released it. http://www.discogs.com/Copeland-Because-Im-Worth-It/release/5609969
Jay’s face kinda expresses on that photo above: “Wow, THAT ‘Pretty Hurts’!”
