Spent the week checking out some albums from earlier in the year on the Top 50 article. By far my favorite discovery is For Those I Love (which I think missed the list but several commenters mentioned?). I hear bits of The Streets and Irish post-punk, but it's more... hypnotic. You could almost imagine the Weeknd going over some of these beats (even though the album sounds nothing like The Weeknd).
I like it! As others have said, I hear both George Michael and Jampire Weekend (both positives for me, though I know the latter is controversial.) And I think both the song and video are weirder than they’re getting credit for (or maybe it’s just weird to see Lorde wearing something not monochrome, lol)
Nah, I’m downvoting the opinion on Japanese Breakfast, lol. To be fair, I didn’t see them til 2017, and it’s possible Zauner got better. But I was actually shocked how strong and dynamic she was as a live singer, since the first two records layer on the vocal reverb (which is fine, just not something that usually translates live). At the risk of hyperbole, I think it’s kind of a Dylan situation where she’s actually really solid technically (by rock n roll standards), but people think she’s bad because she has a nasally tone. (Then again, as a fan of The Mountain Goats and They Might Be Giants, I definitely have a higher than average tolerance for nasal tones, lol)
"Parade" and "Mediational Field" from the Paprika soundtrack by Susumu Hirasawa are both worth checking out (and definitely seem like something Zauner would be into). I don't even remember liking the movie that much, lol, but the soundtrack makes me want to backflip off a motorbike and punch my shadow self.
Well, it's not enough to get me into a room with 2,700 people in June, but I'm extremely curious to see how this goes.
OK, fine, I'll give Sour a chance.
Yeah, given it's Lil Nas X, I assumed it was an intentional Spongebob homage, lol
I'm not even really into Gaga, and I think it's an amazing album cover. I could totally see, like, the Cramps doing something similar, so it's wild that she did it at the height of her pop imperial phase. Also it feels like she's making fun of all those conservative "I sexually identify as an attack helicopter" jokes, even though her album came out 7 epochs of internet discourse before those were even a thing, lol
It’s not anti-vax specific, but if you just comment “Master of Dipshits” on any recent Hetfield article, it probably applies
History repeats itself: the first time as tragedy, the second time as ska
I still think about the Iceage interview where at the end Nardwuar asks them if they have anything else to say to the people out there, and Rønnenfelt just says "Nah."
That Instagram video is a masterpiece, and it made my whole weekend
If they wanted to give the full Morrissey experience, they’d cancel the air date and reschedule it for sometime next year

Hey, he's from New York, he looks sedated--that's half the battle! I fear, though, that "great rock biopic" is a euphemism for "another fuckin' Walk The Line remake," which sounds like the least interesting way to tell this story.
Yeah, I was gonna say, this has got to be the least accurate song title ever, lol. It’s like if Noel Gallagher wrote a song called “Nobody Knows I Don’t Like My Brother”
Fair. I'm looking at this from the perspective of someone who doesn't have a brand and doesn't want one, lol. Still seems insane to me that Nike have built an empire off policing uses of a little sideways comma that a freelance designer made for them in the 60s!
You're absolutely right, but also trademark law sucks, and I would love it if Lil Nas X was able to weaken trademark protection over these stupid sneakers. Hail Satan, tonight!
