Hot damn this is fantastic. Fits right into the heavily processed yet heartfelt and warm sound I love on 22, A Million and the s/t. I wonder if "Season 5" will be a new album , a continuing singles series, or something else. I would love to see this crew put together a longer visual too.

Hype on my TL was entirely justified. I am intrigued to see who she starts rapping with next.

I was explaining to a friend last week how the Verve got totally screwed by the Stones' legal team.

Love the parallels between late '90s alt rock and contemporary rap, several years removed from breakthroughs and innovations.

I started a new interview series called Chicago Selects where I talk to artists about their playlists. First one is with Joshua Virtue and Malci, from the Why? Records crew, who put together a mix of their crate digger influences. https://tiny.cc/ChiSelectsJVMalci

RIP to FBG Duck, killed in Chicago last night. I wake up this morning to our asshole mayor saying he "fancies himself as a rapper" but is also member of a gang, as if that makes his death any less tragic. 26 years old.

hey a fellow Chicagoan! I love WXRT even though I wish they were better at catering to people my age.

I think at a certain point you're so rich that it doesn't matter how much more money you get, your lifestyle won't change. I imagine this is extremely true for a rock star.

interestingly enough, the traditional idea of "clown makeup", at least in 2020 America, is derived from blackface vaudeville performers.

I never listened to this album. I liked the singles but very rarely in the mood for a big pop album lately. I'll have to give it a shot before this remix drops.

Man, I love Black Star, and I was thrilled to interview Kweli over the phone one time. But given his total denial of his whacked out twitter behavior to Jezebel, it does not make me feel good about his denials of worse misconduct: https://pitchfork.com/news/talib-kweli-battles-ex-collaborator-res-in-court-on-twitter-over-sexual-harassment-claim/

August 5, 2020 on The Number Ones: Yes’ “Owner Of A Lonely Heart”
My high school marching band played both “Roundabout” and “Owner of a Lonely Heart” in the early ‘10s. “Roundabout” had a very proggy extra bar of 2/4 that made marching to it a real pain, but “Heart” just goes hard!

twigs has very interesting taste in rap. Her track with Rocky was one of the highlights on his last album, and she's collabed with Lucki twice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kw8mY8Eme7s

For as much as I love TH, I haven't spent much time with DB's solo stuff besides his most recent album (so glad I saw the tour), his St Vin collab, and that Eno collab album. So yeah I think I agree based on my limited data!

Yes! Michael Bloomfield, most famous for playing lead guitar with Dylan during the “Judas” performance and on Highway 61 Revisited, is a great underrated Chicago blues player that pushed his music in very cool psychedelic directions. Check this out: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VdoHWJ1PCWw

I describe Paul’s Boutique to people as a concept album about being young and rich and doing a lot of drugs.
