I think he's a free agent, tho this is the first time in 2 years he's recorded for another label.

Can we please take a moment for the fact that the official "Love Sick" video is just the Grammys performance with the Soy Bomb stuff carefully edited out?

Meant to get into Dalek, but where they're coming from is so fundamentally different from what Ghostemane is doing that it just didn't fit.

It's Waxahatchee. I'm pretty sure she's the only person ever to get AOTW three times. Would probably be Young Thug if his release schedule wasn't so chaotic.

Murphy was talking that shit, tho not directly about the Rapture, back when LCD were first active, too. I loved it. I interviewed him when Sound of Silver was coming out, and he was like, "These bands like Bloc Party are so nice to us, and I just want to DESTROY them."
