Josh Ritter - Long Shadows

chris on October 09 2016

Sometimes life problems are misconceived, jumbled and or muddled. Small problems seem really-really big, and big problems seem inconsequential. Just take a step back and get some f-word perspective. I think that Nietzsche had some insight when he blabbered, There are no facts, only interpretations.

Seven Saturdays - Secret Things

chris on September 20 2016

The emotional connection between mind and body and soul is an extraordinary thing. Plato says that the soul does not exist in time or space, yet the body does... So when you feel something deep in your soul, for a moment in time, the immortal soul syncs with the material world that your physical being inhabits. All that I know is that it feels fucking amazing. When music hits that sweet spot, reality melts away, and you are left only with a feeling. You aren't just Chris(or Sarah or Abe or Jim) anymore; You're a feeling or an emotion. If you ever have an outer-body experience when listening to music, guaranteed, it will change your whole perspective on life.

Car Seat Headrest - Does It Feel Good To Say Goodbye

chris on September 16 2016

This hits all my marks for a perfect track. Melancholy with a touch of shred, and a perfectly placed Fuck You.

Astronauts etc. - Shake It Loose

Chris on September 04 2016

What... A... Track... This album was recorded live, you know, like the old days. Just a bunch of guys in a room playing until they get it right. None of that Pro Tools bullshit.

Papercuts - Boys of Summer

chris on September 01 2016

Apparently I fell of the face of the Earth. Turns out it was actually flat all along... and Christopher Columbus was a fucking asshole.

Millionyoung - Day We Met

Alex on August 01 2016

How's your summer going? That's good. Oh, mine? You know.. working 70-80 hours a week staring out the window wishing I was on the beach. Or maybe on Mars helping to further mankind by terraforming but actually inadvertently starting an interstellar war.. but no -- I write Javascript all day.

Black Marble - Cruel Summer

Alex on August 01 2016

Please for the love of all that's good and holy stop sending me your band's bullshit press releases. I can't begin to describe how many emails I get a day for some terrible band announcing it's UK tour dates.... I'm not your guy, guys.

The Avalanches - The Wozord of Iz

Alex on July 12 2016

Well... it's been 16 years since the last Avalanches album, or about as long as it's been since I last posted. So much has changed since I bumped Avalanches, the only similarity now is their sound. I suppose I should go listen to this on repeat for the next 16 years, or until a new Avalanches album comes out.

Posture - Bitter

chris on July 08 2016

These young Londoners sound a bit like good ol' Steve Malkmus, but 24 years later, which means they were about... negative 4 years old when Slanted and Enchanted came out.

Big Data_Dangerous (feat. Joywave)

chris on July 08 2016

One time I heard that if you stay awake for 3 days straight, you can start to hallucinate... or start to trip, or can get away with murder legally... I can't remember exactly. One of those.
