As much as I'm convinced we're in the worst timeline, there are still a handful of redeeming things about it. See above for proof.

You mean an album called Fully Loaded: God’s Country ISN’T a concept album about Yorkshire?

I thought that he was openly bi? Or at least that the allusions to bisexuality in his songs were strong enough to act as confirmation.

October 8, 2019 on Caribou – “Home”
When I saw Future Islands in Australia in 2015, their opening act was a Melbourne rap group called Curse Ov Dialect. He's on their song 'Twisted Strangers' and so he came out during their set to do his verse. The place erupted, it was insane. He's so fucking talented.

June 25, 2019 on Blanck Mass – “No Dice”
Are we supposed to think of this as the counterpart to Fishing for Fishies? Do they form like a loose double album? Is this the Yang to FfF Yin?

June 15, 2019 on Taylor Swift Played The Stonewall Inn Last Night
Definitely more of an album cut than a single. It'll play better when it's deep in the tracklist, where it's been put.

Looks like a self-published novel you'd pick up at a health food store.

June 13, 2019 on Previously Unheard Miles Davis Album Rubberband Coming In September
This whole song is just three and a half minutes of the build up to the drop from "Turn Down for What". I keep expecting it to take off but it never freakin' goes anywhere.

March 5, 2019 on Quelle Chris – “Straight Shot” (Feat Cavalier, Bilal Salaam, Eldar Djangirov, & James Acaster)
The rest of this album could be the sound of Mike Kinsella shitting into a metal bucket and it would still be, like, in my top five come year's end.

February 28, 2019 on American Football – “Every Wave To Ever Rise” (Feat. Elizabeth Powell)
I pegged it more as a 'reverse KKB'. 2021 Charly Bliss is gonna be straight up chiptune.
