Comments from a famous toronto painter shot me down.

a question for the culture: do you ever get nostalgic for 'blog-rock'? or is most of it horrifying in hindsight?

the dark side of fandom is a terrifying glimpse into some of humanity's worst impulses. the possessiveness/entitlement of fanbases or specific individuals is wild.

weird it got no mention in the albums-of-note above, especially because it's awesome: the Sweet Whirl LP, How Much Works, is glorious. downbeat, stripped-down, nocturnal singer-songwriter stuff; smart lyrics, sweet vocals, etc.

i'm already exhausted from parsing the yet-to-come Matty Healy press roll-out for this hypothetical next record. why does the world demand i have an opinion on this band i'd prefer to just completely ignore?

'Island', what a title for a time like this. no man is an island, except for the past 2 months.

for ambient-ish heads there's a new TALsounds record that's great. also even tho it doesn't even garner descriptive words above, Katie Von Schleicher’s latest, Consummation, is awesome.

i love their Untitled LP from 1986 the most. not sure that's a popular opinion, but, also, starting with the first record always makes sense.

if the metric is simply "how much joy does this record bring you", i mean FTBC is amazing but listening to this record feels like having a radiant rainbow explode inside my black, black heart.

the Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith album is incredible. 'Expanding Electricity' one of the best single songs o' the year.

May 8, 2020 on Bob Dylan – “False Prophet”
i've been staring at the artwork a lot. it looks like a '90s version of the '50s, from someone who just discovered the watercolor filter on Photoshop. it's somewhere between daddy-o vaporwave and, like, one of those 'lounge covers of grunge hits' CD-sale-bin staples of yore.

the TV show is really good. way more downbeat and realist than you might expect if the 'director of La La Land' angle is being pushed. love seeing Tahar Rahim and Leïla Bekhti, real life husband/wife, playing husband/wife herein; adds real depth to their turns...

the IBH LP is great. but everyone should be super-excited for Buscabulla LP, which is weirdly not even mentioned above. if you dug the Lido Pimienta record, no way you won't flip for this. it's real good. other album of note out this week: Modern Studies' latest stately outing, The Weight Of The Sun.
