Check out his interview on NPR's All Songs Considered. They play some clips of songs on there. I'm loving the vibe of the album. Randomly, I've been listening to Mulatu Astatke a lot lately and Morby lists him as one of his touchstones for Oh My God. That took my excitement up a notch!

I can buy that he wouldn't have heard of her. Sometimes it's easy to get wrapped up/busy with your own stuff and kinda have blinders on. I used to work in news. People would ask me about some story, and I'd have no idea about it. They'd say, "But don't you work at a news station!?!?" I was so focused on the story I was doing on a given day, that I didn't really get a chance to check the other stories out. Not the same thing, but I can see how he'd have that blind spot.

That triple LP with the orange/yellow/grey vinyl sure is nice looking. A little expensive, but whatever. I pre-ordered the first day it was up. I think I'm with you on not watching these. I will probably check out a leak of the whole thing if that happens, though.

April 23, 2019 on Watch The National Debut I Am Easy To Find With Julien Baker & More In NYC
I think I've told this story before on here, but whatever. Last year, my wife and I went to Nashville for a little weekend trip (and saw Fleet Foxes and Amen Dunes at the Ryman!). While we were there, we checked out a travelling Rolling Stones exhibit that was at the Musicians Hall of Fame. They had some really cool artifacts, but one of my favorite things was a listening station. It had eight or ten Stones songs that had faders for each of the instruments, vocals, etc. "Angie" was one of the songs. My wife and I probably spent ten minutes listening to Mick's whispered "AN-JAY" isolated over and over. We were almost crying we were laughing so hard. That just proves that Mick Jagger, out of context, is completely ridiculous. Somehow, withing the framework of the whole Rolling Stones thing, he works, though.

The first thing that pops in my head when The Doors are mentioned.

Croz's solo debut is a very, very underrated album. I had always resisted listening to it because of him being such an ass most of the time. I don't know what finally made me check it out, but man, I'm glad I did. I think if he was more well-liked generally, it would be talked about more as the classic album it is.

Everyone kills each other in battle. No one left. A bunch of shots of each locale burned to the ground, dead bodies everywhere. One final shot of the inn where Hot Pie works. He comes out into the daylight carrying a pie, looks around confused, says "Where'd everybody go? I've finally finished browning the butter." When no one answers, he looks into the camera and says, "Whattaya gonna do?!?!?!" and stuffs the pie into his mouth. Fade to black.

April 18, 2019 on SZA, The Weeknd, & Travis Scott – “Power Is Power”
Oh man, "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy". I had to sit through a ton of my sister's dance recitals. I think every single one of them had someone dancing to that fucking song.

April 18, 2019 on The Number Ones: Helen Reddy’s “Delta Dawn”
My personal policy is that I try to get one or two good pics with my phone during the first song. Then I put it away and watch the rest of the show. Usually during that first song everyone is still kind of getting situated, so there's a little more moving around, etc. than during the rest of the show.

I love Kurt, but I don't dig this cover much. It has, however, led me down a rabbit hole of Stones album tracks. For that, I am thankful.

Madonna meets Maluma, makes magnificently maudlin music "Medellin". (I haven't listened to the song. I don't know if any of those words accurately describe it.)

Hold up! We don't have time to discuss this wonderful song (spot-on ranking/write up, Tom). Our man Tom is in DANGER! https://twitter.com/tombreihan/status/1118493453212626944 Let's NOT save Tony Orlando's house!

I'm really digging this new one. I kinda lost track of TMOE after the first two albums.

I saw the artist and title and thought, "Damn. How is this a number one and I've never even heard of it." Then I listened, and was like "Ohhhh. Louie, Louie, Louie, Lewwweeee." But enough of that. "Walk Away Renee" a 6!?!?! What the fuck, man? That's some gorgeous shit. Love The Left Banke.

I just realized that my favorite genre of music might be stripped-down word-spew. Thank you for naming it for me!

April 15, 2019 on Courtney Barnett – “Everybody Here Hates You” Video
I got Tweedy's album and the Courtney Barnett single. My daughter went with me and was disappointed that the two different stores we stopped at didn't get the Baby Shark 7". I think maybe that was a blessing.

Exactly. I like these songs just fine. I guess I was just hoping for a big-ass level up for this album.

My only exposure to Marshmello is a version of one of his songs "sung" by cats meowing on Youtube that my daughter tortures me with. Kids are fucking evil.

Man, I learn something new every day at Stereogum. I had no idea Hornsby had worked with Spike Lee. Looks like he did music for Oldboy and Chi-raq.

Oh man, you'd be hard pressed to find a non-white pro wrestling character that's not problematic. Someone pointed out to me once that if there are two black wrestlers in a wrestling promotion, they will, at some point, either a) be a tag team or b) feud with each other.
