The Life of Pablo is fantastic IMO... a little disjointed but is still one of my favorite albums to revisit.

I'm not in a good spot to listen to this, but I'm excited to hear the cover by Miya Folick. She's one of my favorite new artists. Also, John Green is great. His Crash Course series on Youtube is phenomenal.

I've been to the Eaux Claires festival every year they've had it, and I've absolutely loved it every year. The last year was still a blast, but many of the attendees expected for bigger names to be announced with all of the talk of the "secret lineup" that was coming out. By the time the festival rolled around, the entire lineup had basically leaked. It was still great being there, and seeing The National, Swamp Dogg, Ho9909, & Big Red Machine, but a lot of other aspects fell flat. I love Eau Claire though and I will use any excuse I can to go back!

The introduction to Car Wash always gets me so hyped. Such a jam.

IGOR STILL SLAPS. I bought one of the special edition vinyls right away when this was announced and haven't heard any updates on it yet, but the same thing happened with Flower Boy. It'll be a great day when it shows up on my front door randomly. I think IGOR might be my AOTY so far.

I'm still enjoying the album. It's hard for me to listen through it in full though just due to the length. When I hit the back half of the album I start to lose interest in tracks. Definitely not my AOTY but probably in my top 10.

Probably won't be listening to this again. Unless it becomes a song of the summer, and I can't avoid it. This is back to normal for Katy Perry, but not as catchy as some of her earlier hits.

I don't mind Goblin personally. She is a great song off of that album. In comparison to the others though, Goblin is definitely at the bottom of the list.

May 20, 2019 on Premature Evaluation: Tyler, The Creator Igor
I don't think this album is as good as Flower Boy, but songs like Earfquake, Igor's Theme, Gone, Gone | Thank You, and Are We Still Friends? show a new type of Tyler that I really enjoy. This album probably comes in at #2 for me out of his releases. I think I'll continue to like this album more and more as I continue to listen to it, but it's definitely not as immediately likeable as his previous releases.

May 20, 2019 on Premature Evaluation: Tyler, The Creator Igor
I don't think I'll ever listen to an entire DJ Khaled album, but I'll always check out a few of the artists I enjoy on his albums. I went straight to the SZA track and it wasn't too bad. The sample of Ms. Jackson is cool, and anything SZA touches is normally at least halfway decent. Gonna hold off from listening to anything else though until I continue to listen to Igor and I am Easy to Find another 4-5 times.

Love this album so far. I do get frustrated occasionally with the vocal mixing on some Tyler tracks, but lots of memorable tracks on this one. Slightly lower than Flower Boy for me, but I agree with other comments that this one will probably be a grower.

Not as terrible as I anticipated actually. I know this isn't a hot take, but I typically dislike just about anything involving Jimmy Fallon now. His late night show has completely soured him for me.

I've seen them 6-7 times, and there have definitely been one or two where Matt has been a little over-served and forgotten some lyrics, but each show in my opinion was still great. I'm a fan boy for The National though so I may be slightly biased. I've brought friends to shows though that were 50-50 on The National, and they've all left beyond impressed. The sloppiest show was at the Eaux Claires fest where he forgot some lyrics to "I Need My Girl" and a few others, and my friends had no idea there was a mistake, and thought the show was the best of the weekend.

Commented this in the other thread, but saw them in a small town in Wisconsin this last weekend for a community get together. I have no idea how they booked Slow Pulp, but they were great. I was among 7 people who were actually watching the show, while a much larger crowd was around an amateur fire breather 50 feet away. They were awesome though and put on a great show despite rural Wisconsin's lacking interest in indie music.

May 15, 2019 on Band To Watch: Slow Pulp
Want to hear some crazy shit? I just saw Slow Pulp perform to a crowd of approximately 7 people in Brillion, Wisconsin. They were booked for a small random event and sounded great, but I felt terrible for them playing to basically nobody on Main Street. The lead singer tried to interact with us and said "it's great to be back in a place with great cheese curds" to mostly silence, so I tossed a "Woo!!" Loudly toward the stage and got a chuckle and thumbs up. They performed well and didn't seem to be upset by the smaller crowd. I'll definitely be watching them as they keep putting out more music!

Just finished listening to "Here Comes the Cowboy" and it fits in with my feeling about every Mac DeMarco album I've ever listened to. I really enjoy 2-3 songs, but find the album as a whole to be unimpressive.

Based on the singles so far, I'm not sure this is going to be as good at EMOTION, but I'm excited for it nonetheless. Now That I Found You & Julien have both been in steady rotation for me. Next Friday is going to be absolutely stacked with The National, Tyler the Creator, and Carly Rae Jepsen all releasing new albums. I cannot wait.

Really enjoy this song. The way it starts reminds me of a TV on the Radio track. It's interesting to hear the synth sounds from Sleep Well Beast get mixed with what feels like an old National sound. I'm so excited for this album.

Thank you! "Kanye had expensive socks and people bought them.... UGH!" I will always follow what Kanye does, even if he has completed disappointed me with his political views & public statements that he's made. His performance on Sunday was really unique, and had some great moments. It was definitely too dragged out for me on the livestream, but the moments that hit were really fantastic.
