Weird comparison, but for my money: slanted > cryptograms crooked rain > microcastle wowee zowee > halcyon digest brighten the corners > monomania terror twilight > fading frontier Some are closer than others, but still.

A big fuck yes to "Fair Annie." I finally got to that album late last week, and that song immediately blew me away. A perfect illustration of how transcendent traditional music still can be.

Actually Poptimism is just an offshoot of Jambivalence, which itself was a counterargument to Rapprehensiveness.

Dang I just put this on the other grammy thread because I didn't read this one first. I never thought I'd say this, but I gotta get my head back in the commenting game.

Should also mention No Age, Musgraves, Dan Bachman, Cat Power, Phosphorescent, Glenn Jones, Phil Cook, Pusha, others. Haven't had time to listen to Meg Barid/Mary Lattimore or Jeff Tweedy yet but I'm sure I'll love those too.

November 5, 2018 on William Tyler – “Fail Safe”
Just to add something to the stew you've got going here, the Other Years are far and away the best new band I've heard this year. Stereogum did a nice little feature on them a couple of months back, and their s/t is one of my recent favorites. It's the perfect thing to have in your ears this time of year.

This is my favorite album ever. I have a hard time articulating how much it means to me –– "the world" seems like a bit much, "a lot" a bit reductive. I'll just say it means a whole hell of a lot to me. "I'm gonna shine out in the wild kindness, and hold the world to its word."

They also rejected Stephen Malkmus's electronic album (which, to be fair, could turn out to not be all that listenable). Still, further proof that they're worried enough about the ol' bottom line that they aren't giving even their legacy artists carte blanche.

Really great find. Not sure if I ever read that, but it's fascinating to get the scoop regardless.

I love this album. Don't know if anyone can confirm this (I might have read it somewhere, might have surmised it, not sure), but it always sounded to me like the drums were recorded after Marshall did the solo guitar/vocal tracks, almost as an afterthought, which is why they're slightly off. Rather than follow the drummer, the drums are following her, giving the album that uniquely loose feel.

So is this about cocaine or winter in the Sierra Nevadas? Both?
