New Madrid's "magnetkingmagnetqueen" is amazing and nobody will care

Idk the ethics of music blog headlines or their fact checking practices, but Mac saying, "I just had penis enlargement surgery so my balance is all out of whack and I can't play my drums properly right now, but soon enough I'll get used to this new piece," seems more tongue in cheek than medically accurate. But whatever, may DeMarco's D be long and prosperous

It was my first favorite; but man, At Dawn? Those two albums are just mental whirlwinds. Each ends and you look up and ask, "where am I?" Amazing

FUCKING ENOUGH ALREADY!! But honestly, best rapper to rock a hockey jersey. I always hated the shitty the rest of the group treated Phife at the end of the the band's career, but he handled it with total grace. "Every dawg has his day but F that it's my year" I'll never forget hotboxing cars in high school, driving on route 17 and the surrounding suburbs, and listening to ATCQ albums, trying our hands over some of the beats. Enjoy heaven's cipher, Phife di-dawg.

If you haven't heard this guy's previous album "The Bearer of Bad News" and you like early Paul Simon, it will certainly be a treat.

Idk I love Sturgill but this sounds like what happened when the Black Keys hit mid-career and just put that chunky fuzz tone over everything, sheen over substance.

so many cool ones have been mentioned but I'll point out Sharon Van Etten doing "To Lay me Down" is so cool, so is Ira Kaplan doing "Wharf Rat". Jim James will be perfect, but to the point where it's just like "oh right, yeah"--the ooo's in the middle will be silo reverb perfection.

Wow, this is hard to believe. I remember being high at night on a baseball field in the Berkshires listening to this record, with what must've been a iPod dock speaker, when all of us realized collectively that this album was a goodbye, and got real fucking dark, before ultimately ending by showing us that death needs to be a celebration of life rather than fear of our humanity, one where we all must leave our bodies. One of the best records ever and certainly of the new century.

yardboat is great too, considering they did it three days, too. Also, I think side B is what puts Sunswimmer over the top. I don't think you can view them as like stand alone tracks, the album is really one piece of music and "And She Smiles" takes you places. I'm all a deadhead, so my tolerance for long songs is strong.

YES! Finally, these guys are getting their look. "Sunswimmer" is one of the most under appreciated albums of this decade, it's a total trip and lodges itself in a headspace where it never bores. Good guys, all super down to earth, hope they hit that next level.

Oh man a co-headline tour from these two would thrust them right to the top of national spotlight. I think the true country, outlaw, western revival is imminent, if not already upon us.

I really think Mondanile, as nice and great a person he is, might be one of the least creative, schooled guitar players in a major band today. I think he has to know it too. He's a total sweetheart, but I don't think he can play a blues scale.

great songs from a wonderful album, but good lord what an awful mix.

But you have to think within the context of this label. A lot of these bands and their members probably barbacked and worked shit day jobs to get signed. These are people who are (generally speaking) weary or skeptical of money and probably see taking it from a truly sociopathic industrial titan as bad as raising those drug prices themselves. But this also isn't new to the world of music, Nine West (an amazing label) has largely been funded by Coca Cola heirs. I really don't care. Sometimes horrible things have begotten beautiful things, and that's better than throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
