OH! What do you know, that Dallas show IS for the next GvsB concert!

I shit ya'll not I put on my "Fresh Blood" Chromatics shirt yesterday. So you're welcome. A tour is great news. Especially that date in Dallas, the location of the last time I saw Chromatics & Glass Candy in 2012 for the GvB show. AT LONG LAST TIME RIDER! Always a key track on DT as it was #3 on the tracklist, right after "In Films". That said, not surprised to hear it's a bit more lowkey. Gotta be a comedown after whatever revamped "In Films" we inevitably get. I've been digging through my files trying to find a document I compiled of all the lyrics for DT songs posted on the old IDIB site. Can't find it, but I do know "Time Rider" lyrics were shared oh so many years ago. Guess it doesn't matter as I'm sure this is a different version than whatever was posted back in 2015/2016. Cool track. As said, will likely slap more in context of the album. And as said above, this news is by all means no reason to get excited for a release date. Probably just bringing that surplus of IDIB vinyl stock on the road to sell more merch to raise funds before DT drops and the money stops rolling in altogether.

Bryan Singer isn't a dead soundcloud rapper so I guess he gets a pass.

If he's so deserving of the Oscar then why isn't Rami performing?

They admitted it. These are always gross situations without perfect solutions. Considering we've seen denial and apologies not being enough, I'm sort of surprised for once to see one of these situations end with a full on admittance. The only perfect way to end these situations is for men (and to be totally inclusive, some women, but to be totally honest, mostly men) to stop being total fucking creeps. UNFORTUNATELY, I don't see that happening any time soon. So in the meantime, if we can't at least appreciate a company like Bloodshot being upfront and honest about this thing, then why even discuss these things? By the looks of it, they tried to settle this internally a few years ago. That didn't work, so here we are. Looks like more actions are being taken and I mean what more do you want? Yes, I'd like to see this buttcheek grabbing asshole thrown into jail for life. But something tells me there will still be someone who isn't satisfied. Yet to say ANY apology isn't much better than denial is horseshit.

I'd wager Byrne's live show last year was the best tour of 2018.

Lot of bands opened for NIN for Lights in the Sky. The three times I saw that tour... well one was Lolla so no opener technically, the other two were A Place To Bury Strangers and mofucken' BORIS. Great tour, but Trent always puts on an amazing show. I'd even argue the reason he went so big on that 2008 Lights in the Sky tour IS BECAUSE of Daft Punk's Alive 2007. It's why Kanye went big for Glow in the Dark. It's why every EDM DJ got a big light box to sit in for their show. Basically every big lightshow after Alive 2007 was just trying to outdo Daft Punk. The problem is the light show was only one big half. The masterclass setlist Daft Punk conjured constantly mixing about 2-4 songs at once is what truly seals the deal.

They were the ones who turned me on to CFCF Night Bus and for that I am eternally grateful.

"...surpassed only by Daft Punk on their Alive 2007 pyramid tour." This is factually correct. There has not been a better concert this century than Alive 2007.

We try to be post-gender pronouns around these parts. We (well, I) do it for miss_merboy.

Yeah Echoes is definitely of its time and Luke's vocals can be enough to drive people away. Not surprised you vibed with "Sister Saviour" as Mattie was a goddamn treat. I mean just the fact you liked that song specifically proves my point that his absence on their last album was greatly felt. Honestly V is a great introduction now. I would actually send most people to that one now if they wanted to check out The Horrors. I think you'd really dig Primary Colours, it clicked with me instantly. But give Skying some time, it's a grower not a shower.

Totally agree with the strong beginning/ending. Been thinking a lot about albums with strong midsections and how maybe that's the real trick to making those classic albums. I always return to Loveless because my god they really just drop all the good songs in the middle. "When You Sleep" -> "I Only Said" -> "Come In Alone" is just an unfair bar to set for musicians. Then again it begins with "Only Shallow" and ends with "Soon" so it's just an unfair standard all around with mbv. Lucky for you I got sick this week, so my listen next week won't be tainted.

Gotcha. When I did that Women write-up last month I got good at narrowing down my grafs to find which ones were triggering the filter. For the Women article it was when I was spelling out the band members names. So this time around I took a guess that it was "M------ Gems" and indeed it was. Guess it has something to do with names. Thanks for checking Scott!

I know I started commenting as rj in 2010, but I know I swung by the site as a lurker before then (shout out to my lurker family). If I'm being honest it would've been around 2008. I was pretty strictly the other site up until then and had a friend who suggested some other sites to check out: Stereogum & cokemachineglow (RIP) to be exact. So I started adding them to my musical site rotation around then. I vaguely recall a Quit Your Dayjob post on the Dodos and I fucking love Visiter so that would spell (count?) 2008 as well.
