Since Peter already did the responsible thing and posted the Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number and website, I just want to remind all ‘Gummers: Whether you’re depressed, stressed out, anxious, in a difficult financial situation, living with a disorder or addiction, having suicidal thoughts, or even if you’re just in a bad place after a rough day, week, month, year, or past couple of years and you feel like talking about it to someone would help, we got yr back, too—no judgments, no attribution.

Whatever you’re going through, know that help is available and you’re not alone.

Listened to it all day yesterday, and I was kinda surprised that I wasn’t blown away by it. Right now, I hear an accomplished debut of a real talent but I’m not head over heels for it like so many are. I feel like I will listen to 2-3 songs a bunch, but the full album blends together in a way that fades a bit into the background. I didn’t hear *all those* moments that really hook you in that were mentioned in the AOTYSF writeup. Hoping they reveal themselves after a couple more listens, but sometimes I don’t get the records that get praised for their songwriting specifically (thinking of Courtney Barnett’s 1st, Lucy Dacus’ 1st, Big Thief’s latest especially) so it’s possible I just don’t recognize great songwriting. Highly, highly possible I’m just a simpleton when it comes to great songwriting.

Rock is in a great place right now. The fact that this *isn’t* one of my favorite rock albums of the year so far means we’ve had a lot of really good ones, and there are more coming. Let me know if you think anything in particular will unlock this thing for me – gonna reread the feature and the AOTYSF piece too.

Easy there Father John Misty. I’m very much in love and it’s real and it exists and it’s not pointless

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

Score:-24 | Jun 13th

Tom, you are a toxic soy boy. You throw shade at Wynton Marsalis for his ACCURATE criticisms of hip-hip culture in general, and then take aim at low-hanging fruit like an up-and-coming artist for doing what’s always been done in this genre. Cool moral relativism bruh. Whatever’s most professionally and socially expedient, though, right?

A lot of these people are leaving families and loved ones behind so suicide’s not a reflection of intelligence or empathy.
