Lil Uzi Vert's entire persona is that 1 second clip.

This whole saga has been a joke taken way past its intended punchline. It's almost a Greek tragedy... as punishment for inflicting this cover on the world, it's now one of their biggest hits of the decade and they'll be forced to play it nightly for the rest of their lives.

About two sentences in, I could tell it was written by Michael. That's when I got really excited and decided to settle in for a half hour read.

I liked Telefone a lot, but can't seem to get into this after multiple tries. Think I need to read along and think... her verses are getting lost in the beautiful music. And though I know she's not a "hooks" artist, Telefone had a light touch including them that this one doesn't for me.

It's really the squiggles. Count me in for the Jack-produced album.

Amber Mark keeps getting better and better. Listen to her debut EP '3:33am' if you haven't... it's a beautiful concept cycle about her mother dying that somehow feels completely full of life:

This song's beautiful and I like the way they use the choir. Great way to start autumn.

September 13, 2018 on The 1975 – “Sincerity Is Scary”
It's maddening. On some level, the shortness totally works for the album. On another, I can't help but feel like if "Gonna Love Me" had another minute and a half it would be a song on the same level as "Cranes in the Sky" for me.

Anyone who hasn’t heard the lead single “Give Yourself A Try” should... well, you know. I’d imagine it changes your opinion of the band.

August 28, 2018 on No Rome – “Narcissist” (Feat. The 1975)
“During the time in question, I also believe I was playing a lot of new music with controversial content. FOR ME, rehearsal was about readying myself for the battle I knew I was entering into for simply not allowing a system to pimp me. If I was on edge, I had good reason to be.” Would love to hear Kendrick’s thoughts about this back and forth.

August 28, 2018 on Lauryn Hill Responds To Robert Glasper’s Accusations That She Stole Music And Mistreated Her Band
I've been reading Rob Sheffield's "Dreaming The Beatles" book, and it's a really nice companion to all Tom's write-ups about their hot streak. The book's basically a chronological series of essays about how the band engaged with culture and vice versa, with deep dives along the way into both their songwriting process and the more mythic interplay between the four of them. Highly recommended!

I enjoyed the first two singles, but throw this back in the OneRepublic/Imagine Dragons bin where it belongs. The obvious cowrites are not a good look for Macca.

August 15, 2018 on Paul McCartney – “Fuh You”
Man, he’s really just closing out his career exactly on his own terms isn’t he? The farewell tour has been great by all accounts, and with this project he’s reworking his compositions for posterity’s sake, to be more like he wanted them in his head. Good for you, Mr. Simon.

"I'm buying a $200+shipping Pussy Melter Guitar Pedal for my synth because I liked the off-color humor and nobody else did." Sound reasoning there, Drummy.

August 7, 2018 on Steel Panther Respond To Backlash By Selling New “Pussy Melter” Guitar Pedal
I have supposedly met the titular Delilah of this song a few times. She was a volunteer track coach at a NY-based D1 college who we raced in cross country. I was friendly with one of the sprints coaches on my own team: a taller, loudly funny guy who tended to flirt with the female coaches and worked at a campus bar during the off-season. At one of the meets, he moved our team over near the opposing school's team to do warm-ups so he could flirt with Delilah, then proceeded to tell me how she doesn't like to go by that name anymore because everyone bothered her about it once they found out. Makes sense, I would probably lean on that as a conversation-starter as well. Met her a few times after but never asked her about it out of respect. Hope she's still coaching!

Agreed wholeheartedly. I suppose my biggest problem with it is that Mac Miller's rapping often sounds unessential to his own music.
