She’s definitely in the right. What’s more, it’s pretty despicable of the Peas to release a song full of recycled rap bonafides and posit it as their “comeback,” or “return to their roots,” or whatever this is supposed to be. Gross all around.

Did you know who “gospel luminary Kirk Franklin” was before a Google search? Just wondering.

Sounds good to me! For my money, the blue stage is the place to be on Saturday.

July 16, 2015 on The Week In Pop: Rachel Platten Feels The Power Of The Taylor Swift Bump

This isn’t apropos of anything pop-
related, but is anyone else here going to Pitchfork this weekend? I have a 3-day pass and it’d be cool to put faces on some of your outlandish personalities.

Too much of a good thing.

Finally! Rip Tide feels like it was released a lifetime ago. Cute song too.

May 26, 2015 on A$AP Rocky’s At.Long.Last.A$AP Is Out Now, A Week Early

I thought so – “Where the Sky Hangs” and “Dancing in the Grave” in particular – but that’s also relative to the two previous Passion Pit albums.

Wanted to like this more, but on first listen it sounded like Rich Gang sans Young Thug’s great interplay with Rich Homie Quan. Might warrant a revisit though.

Quite enjoying the new Passion Pit album anyway. Speaking as someone who isn’t 16 any more, I’m glad he parred back his sonic sugar rush a bit. “Five Foot Ten” is my jam.

What makes it “important”? Your level of excitement?

March 13, 2015 on Kendrick Lamar – “King Kunta”

Still too blindsided by the overwhelmingly bad album title to go into this song unbiased. With that in mind, on first listen this sounds more in line with “i” (which I found over-the-top corny) than “the Blacker the Berry,” which bums me out. I could also do with more verses/fewer choruses.

The only issue with KoL is that it’s on the short side, which got extra-highlighted by the fact that Radiohead dropped 3-4 great songs on the subsequent Basement performance/Record Store Day. Other albums should aspire to have that be their only flaw.

Maybe I need to give this another shot, but on first (and second) listen I found Another Eternity to be supreeeeeemely boring; closer to the Purity Ring imitators that followed in Shrines’ wake than Shrines itself. Not a great sign when the singles you’re feeling mixed about are actually the best songs on the album.

But at least we have Shrines. Boy do I love Shrines.

Gonna chime in with some mild discontent about the site resdesign, but also to say that those who underrate Ghostface do so at their own peril. He is spread a little thin these days, admittedly, but he still sounds great over consistently cool beats and I think Sour Soul might be the best of his last batch of albums. BADBADNOTGOOD are on some psychedelic Ennio Morricone shit with their beats on this one.
