Nothing other than I am incredibly, incredibly anxious for the rest of this album. It's gonna be something special.

I was a fan. Rainbow is a stellar track.

Eddie Vedder spinning around on a stool writing "pro choice" on his arm in sharpie while the band jammed out on Porch was a pretty good moment too.

After getting much more into Kraftwerk since the first season airing, I've really come to appreciate "Inner City Pressure."

August 7, 2017 on Flight Of The Conchords’ Comedy-Rock Friendship Still Feels Timeless 10 Years Later
I'm with you. And I think Wheelhouse is one of the finest songs he's written. I could see how the the extended, circular piano riffs can seem tiresome, but I'm a fan. It kind of lets my mind melt into the song for a while and digest everything leading up to that point. To that end, "Gold Tone" is probably my second favorite KV track because of that same reason. Side bar, I had been listening to Molly Nilsson and John Maus recently -- anyone think that "Life Like This" sounds a (lotta) bit like "Hey Moon?"

Been loving all the new singles. The way the tracks are textured makes me wonder how much is Adam and how much is him letting the band have more creative control, like he mentioned in a interview a few weeks back. If you listen to the new Nightlands L.P. (solo project of I believe the bass player), you can hear a similar warmth and gooeyness in the production.

I really love Strangest Thing but boy am I glad we aren't sleeping on The Weather Station. That's gonna be another great one, albeit in a different way.

More importantly than anything Prophets of Rage is doing, when are we getting that El-P produced ZDLR album?

I don't think there's anything PoB has put out the last two years that made me go "meh."

It's great he's getting the critical attention he deserves after playing a support role for so many acts that are finally getting the critical attention they deserve.

Very good choice this week! Jim is a great player and somehow makes everything he does look effortless. Saw him on the Ambsace tour back in 2015 with Nathan Salsburg opening for Steve Gunn and his (and Nathan's) playing just blew my mind. Two other things worth noting is that Joan Shelley also recorded in Jeff Tweedy's loft with Nathan Salsburg -- so something good must be going on up there. And Jim is also is in the current lineup of Doug McCombs' (of Tortoise fame) band Brokeback. Both albums definitely worth checking out.

Thumbs up for Bruised Orange which is my favorite Prine album, not to mention a devastatingly beautiful concept.

Yea, agreed. Adam seems kind of like a perfectionist now, so I'd imagine whatever he puts out to the public is damn near what he wants it to sound like.

Yes! Not only that, but my copy was (literally) cut poorly and rubs against the base of tbe stylus on each rotation. But the defect kinda makes it unique.

I'm curious to hear the final cut of Thinking of a Place. I picked it up on RSD and the note on the sleeve indicated it was an early mix of the track.

I'd be 100% ok with In the End replacing Don't Stop Believin' as the go-to, drunken, everyone knows 1/4 the words and chorus sing along.
