Oh my, 2019 has given us a new Haxan Cloak album. It’s been 6 long years since Excavation, perhaps the most surprising of my favorite releases this decade. I am PSYCHED. 😍

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/12/magazine/oakland-warehouse-fire-ghost-ship.html Not sure what to make of his account, but that NYT article definitely gave me a lot of insight into how unusual and unhealthy the situation truly was. Just horrifying and tragic all around. I can only hope the survivors can find some measure of peace.

Agreed. In his AMA around when the mixtape dropped he mentioned his greatest inspiration at the time was Arca, another producer who is really good at showcasing a forward-thinking style without upstaging his vocalists. At the very least he made it easier for me to turn on a lot of my friends to SOPHIE/OOEPUI, so kudos to him.

The new Róisín Murphy song slaps. She’s been on a hot streak with these singles.

“He was a very talented producer back when he was involved in his productions” Fucking brutal 😂😂

Pleasantly surprised by this. Nothing revolutionary but that chorus is solid. Easily better than anything on Witness anyway.

Haven’t seen his name in awhile, this is exciting. This is one of the defining music videos from my college days: https://youtu.be/zDZPxvO1ftY

She was AMAZING when I saw her. Intimate venue, not a whole lot of people, met her and she signed my hat.

Agreed, though it's become difficult to compare late 10s Charli with early 10s Charli. I absolutely adore her pre-PC Music output but True Romance and especially SUCKER are wildly different than when she began sipping on the punch at SOPHIE's place. I'd rank Pop2 in her top 3 releases, if not #1, but True Romance did truly blow my mind when it dropped (though I'd been high on the pre-release songs for some years before that). I just wish Lizzo had more of a presence here. I had to listen to it twice before it even clicked.

May 15, 2019 on Charli XCX – “Blame It On Your Love” (Feat. Lizzo)
To my understanding, "Blame It on Your Love" existed in a totally different demo version before "Track 10." Then "Track 10" dropped and used its parts in a different arrangement than the demo, including a sample of a totally separate Life Sim track. Then this track features the original "Blame It on Your Love" in another form + Lizzo. So essentially "Track 10" is the remix but it's also the first official release of the song in any form. I may be wrong however.

“Cellophane” is heartbreaking in this weird, haunting, inexplicable way to me right now. Like I couldn’t tell you what about it specifically touches me (“everything” doesn’t count) but it’s just a devastatingly beautiful piece of work.

I’m sure this will come as a shock to everyone, but Lizzo is wildly popular at the gay bars I frequent. “Juice” and “Boys” are an absolute joy to get down to. Very hyped for this album, she’s a treasure.

Seconded, that set was absolutely breathtaking. I’m sure she melted the brains of more than a couple LSD-fueled Coachella hipsters that night.

We diverge on a lot of our musical taste, Knight, but I think this is a more significant difference.

Decided to give "Low Slow" a spin on your suggestion just now and woah! Once I'm done with Weyes Blood I'm going to dive headfirst into this.

I saw Carly Rae Jepsen by myself on Valentine's Day 2016 (if you want a metric of just how gay I am). She drew probably the best crowd of any show I can remember seeing. Everyone was singing along, every word. It was the E•MO•TION tour and she played every song from the album, including the bonus tracks (minus "Black Heart"), as well as the singles from Kiss. It was utterly transcendent. It was a pretty even mix of younger girls, their chaperones, gay men, what I assume were hipsters, and then just people I couldn't guess just by looking at them (and honestly made me feel silly for even thinking I could), but everyone was so engaged. I ended up drunkenly buying a woman's cut "Warm Blood" shirt on the advice of a young girl in the line behind me. Her mom was pretty amused from what I could tell. I love that shirt and wear it all the time.

This spring and early summer are utterly stacked. I’m seeing Julien Baker, Mavis Staples, US Girls, Weyes Blood, and Mr Twin Sister between now and the beginning of June. Considering a trek to see Hatchie open for Girlpool and debating the cost of seeing Mitski (sold out) as well. The body is willing but the bank account is weak.
