Love the one-single, one-week album rollout scheme. The hype is real!
This album has always been an emotional gut-punch for me, save for the stanza'd pain that is "Re:Stacks". I first really listened to it while I was working nights; I can still remember how deeply chilled the opening notes of "Perth" made me feel, and having to hide myself away in a dark and empty conference room at 3 in the morning, a deep snow muffling the building as I quietly sobbed, alone. I avoid listening to this album because of the deep, emotional resonance it has in conjuring up such an isolating and draining period of my life. A complete masterpiece, nonetheless.
Disney amalgamating some of the biggest names in popular culture (the Star Wars franchise, Marvel, and now The Beatles) under their international media conglomerate umbrella is deeply concerning. Right wing figures prattle on about "cultural Marxism" when real (pop) cultural hegemony is being realized by corporate, profit-motivated interests to recycle decades-old ideas and individuals who have been dead for fractions of centuries, immortalized in the name of greed in pursuit of the almighty Dollar. That being said, I'm still very interested in this documentary. Perhaps I will seek it out, illicitly.
Wow, there are all of 45 pixels in that image!

I work at a pharmaceutical company and I would rock that shit every single fucking day.

Excellent interview, Aliya, it will be interesting to see what comes next from Kennyhoopla. This line had me thinking: "...it arrives at a time when artists of color are gaining more attention within predominantly white rock scenes as listeners reckon with their biases in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement." It's tough to know comprehensively if and how listeners changed their opinions as to who and what kind of music they consumed in the wake of the largest civil rights movement of this century so far. But I'm curious as to the conversations had at labels, big and small and independent, regarding race and white supremacy as to who they sign on and promote, who their target audiences are, and the type of music they foster and promote.
This article is a good overview of the proto-punk, glam subgenre that is bovver rock, for those like myself who never heard of it before: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/aug/18/giuda-bovver-rock-interview

Chubby and the Gang RULE! No question about it!
Do not sleep on Indigo De Souza. Her debut I Love My Mom is a personal favorite of the past few years that I return to frequently; "How I Get Myself Killed", "Take Off Ur Pants", "Sick In The Head", and "Smoke" get constant spins. I first her when she was opening for Alex G in Western Mass-- she had a sore throat on that leg of the tour and did a stripped back, quieter, acoustic-forward set that I thought was incredible, and was shocked at how powerful and dynamic her songs were on the record when I listened to it on my ride home.
Everyone's too busy bickering about whether "Solar Power" is any good to listen to who the majority of the article is written about. Now, if Lorde had dropped that line...
Genuinely was thinking the same thing.
Not even close to what I expected when I slapped that "Click here to show it.", goddamn but I'm laughing at the sheer absurdity of it.

Genuinely appreciate the festival organizers cultivating realistic expectations from a Kendrick performance on the flyer. Sometimes it's good to just see one of the greats, without expecting new material from them! I know it saved me the cost of a day pass, plus the flight and lodgings, and the unspeakable emotional cost breaking my "I will never go to Las Vegas" Personality Pillar may have entailed.
Coachella 2022 poster design team is taking notes as we speak.
There are a number of...interesting....typographical choices on this lineup poster.
Meg truly can't miss. The Bon Iver/37d03d influence is STRONG on these tracks.
