Very cool that we live in a reality where this headline didn't even phase me.

Maybe it's because I'm finally listening at 8 am while half asleep and hung over but The Gate is very much doing it for me right now.

Hot take: Familiars is their best album and maybe if y'all had realized that this wouldn't have happened

Honestly inspiring to have watched to commentariat move from openly complaining about CRJ coverage to willingly voting her into second place of the Song of the Summer poll.

May we never learn what it is she do, as the horror would be too great for any sane mind.

Was Shaking the Habit not considered experimental?

Just want to point out that PC Music already did the whole "fake energy drink based on a song" thing with much more conviction and a much better song.

Who would preorder an album with absolutely no details? That's absurd. Ah good, my card went through.

August 2, 2017 on Björk Shares New Album Pre-Order, But No Details Yet
I think the incredible short, barebones writeups for each song speak volumes. I've never seen the staff less enthused about something they seem obligated to cover. I think the songs have all been great personally.

I don't think you're getting the full scope of their genius. It's like, you want it now right? But you have.... to wait. They've brilliantly folded the standard bloated press cycle into their message by, uh, doing the standard bloated press cycle.

Just want to acknowledge the TWO Marshall stacks behind Nathan that he's not even plugged into.

Man that time signature change in the chorus is so close to taking off in a really cool way. I hope they record a studio version of this, it's got potential to be a real fuckin jam.

Hot take: he's being (purposely?) petulant but he's right.

As a distant fan of Paramore (really just heard a few singles): this is dope.

April 19, 2017 on Paramore – “Hard Times” Video
A bit of weirdly specific knowledge about a stranger: Phil and Genevieve met after his arctic cabin phase which was post-Microphones. That said this album definitely casts a new light (or is it shadow?) on his older stuff. Break ups and conceptual thoughts about Big Ideas seem very different compared to actual overwhelming grief. I think there's still plenty of room for that stuff in a lifetime and all those older albums are still wonderful and thoughtful, but the callbacks to his older stuff on this album really drive home how much this death has completely upended every part of his reality.

To me it always sounded like someone creating a modern soundtrack to a Kurosawa film.

March 7, 2017 on Forest Swords – “The Highest Flood”
To be honest this kind of just sounds like a less catchy retread of Seasons. Glad they're moving back towards the sound of In Evening Air/On the Water though, the songs on Singles were real good but the clean production killed their energy a bit.

February 1, 2017 on Future Islands – “Ran”
Yeah, No More Stories gives me hope since it's my second favorite Mew album despite the missing member. I guess for me Mew has always been about the intersection of Bo's guitars and Jonas's vocals, so it's weird to hear one of those things missing. But I'm not against the idea of a tight pop album from these guys, I'm sure it'll still be good, though maybe less "essential" than previous releases.
