This is cool, though I think it's pretty fucked that every candidate not named Bernie Sanders basically admitted that they'd be cool with some convention antics to deny him the nomination last night.

Really enjoying the new Boldy James album, The Price of Tea in China, that came out a couple weeks ago. Produced in full by Alchemist with features from Freddie and Vince, and worth hearing for anyone who enjoys tough talk that doesn't need to be overly loud or wordy to menace.

Also, do other people still like Run the Jewels as much as they did in 2014? Has their whole "deal" aged well?

Enjoying the new Tame Impala album more after giving it “one more hour.” Not nearly as good as Currents IMO, but I feel grateful that an indie band from the late 2000s/early 2010s is still around and thinking about how to deliver a creative, full-length album experience/executing that on a high level.

Not really sure how the Bond franchise differs significantly from Eilish's assessment of rap music, but go off I guess: https://twitter.com/xxl/status/1224754226586361864?lang=en

Would've really liked to like that new Tame Impala album, but something just feels uninspired/"off" about the whole thing. IMO it really could've used a more legible emotional throughline like the one that made Currents such a revelation.

February 7, 2020 on Jay Electronica Says His Album Is Done And That It Will Be Out In 40 Days
I don't disagree! That one bar where Kanye compares the U.S. making peace with North Korea to himself making peace with Wiz Khalifa always makes me laugh when I remember it - one of his more enjoyable instances of insane hubris in recent memory. Also think that the Wyoming albums look a whooooole lot better in the wake of Jesus is King.

This is good! Not necessarily expecting something on the level of the band proper, but looking forward to hearing a record that includes "Treefingers" sound-alikes, old man Jon Hopkins songs and songs that sound like chunkier In Rainbows cuts.

Most excited to hear the new Against All Logic comp out on Friday, that last one might be my favorite thing Jaar's released yet (and there's steep competition there!). Also looking forward to hearing the new Shopping album, the singles they've released so far sound like what the last Priests album should've been [ducks].
