FEELING THE FEELING

Comments from crania americana

Clearly he meant "Wee Disclosure," a nod to their diminutive stature that adheres to the site's standard cartoon leprechaun authorial voice.

This song kills me. Danko's vocals, that guitar solo, the horns at the end –– it might be my favorite of theirs.

I stopped paying attention to the Pitchfork points system about a decade ago, but I almost lost my shit when they gave Cosmo's Factory an 8.8. I know taste is subjective and all that jazz, but If we can't agree that that's a perfect album we're fucked.

Deeply ambivalent toward the Eagles, but I've always liked "Take It to the Limit." And the Joe Walsh songs, but that's because Joe Walsh is actually pretty great. For those of you who haven't seen the Eagles doc (which you should), this clip pretty well sums up what makes it so good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imPQfZik4uQ

Sky Blue Sky's my 2nd favorite Wilco album. Very good to incredible (lookin' at you, "Impossible Germany") songs played beautifully, timeless stuff.

I think he's talking about how he travels in a motorcade of Ford Escorts.

This seems an opportune time to plug my new single "XTCBY," an erotic ode to my fave froyo chain.

I'm definitely not in the business of assessing which years are the overall best, but I do know that 3 of my 10 favorite albums of the decade came out in 2014, and there's at least a handful from that year I still play.

I can confirm this. In fact, if you play her most popular songs backwards, you'll hear a voice whispering, "Go ahead, do it. Buy peaches from NPC-certified growers. Do it." Just another example of an artist that exists only to prop up that dastardly National Peach Council.

I suppose you could say the amount that Ludacris shops at Whole Foods is amusing, or laughable through obvious absurdity.

August 2, 2018 on Drake – “In My Feelings” Video
I'm Real excited that MTV would make this Play. If You Had My Love for Jenny from the Block, this news would put you On the Floor. To MTV president Chris McCarthy: I Luh Ya Papi, and I'm Feelin' So Good about this pick. Ain't it Funny (Murder Remix) how it took so long for J.Lo to get this honor? On the day of the show I'll be Waiting for Tonight to see what's bound to be a spectacular performance.

And while it's a covers record, "To Willie" is fantastic. His version of "Walkin'" is particularly wonderful.

July 30, 2018 on Phosphorescent – “New Birth In New England”
Long overdue, very excited for this. And I dig the track –– it's like a mid-'70s Dead song with late-'80s Dead production.

July 30, 2018 on Phosphorescent – “New Birth In New England”
Great stuff. Insignificance is probably my favorite album of the 21st century, and Bad Timing totally blew my mind and opened me up to a way of playing the guitar and thinking about music that still takes up a hefty chunk of my free time. And I'm with him on The Visitor –– it's a truly a beautiful thing.

Not sure if it got any play 'round these parts, but I finally dug into Rosali's "Trouble Anyway" this week and it kills. Calls to mind a synthesis of the most recent Weather Station LP and the War on Drugs circa Slave Ambient –– so yeah, pretty nice.
