Yeezus.

I tend to be pretty good at imaging how things sound just from reading reviews and think pieces but this, nothing prepared me for this.
This song is for the guy who keeps yelling from the balcony, and it's called "We Hate You, Please Die".

How are you finding the new Smith Westerns stugs? I'm yet to check it out.

Check out Krill on their bandcamp. It's the best thing I've heard all year. Easy.

Not a plus.

No. Not at all. It was already on my MAB approved albums to check out list, BC's comment just bumps it up a bit.

Not the best album of the year, but potentially the nicest. This is just very pleasant music. Sometimes, that's all you need.

Was genuinely disappointed in it. I quite liked how scuzzy their first record sounded and they cleaned themselves up too much on this one.

^ Wasn't sure if that was an album cover, or a reaction to BC's comment.

Song-by-song analysis:

Giorgio by Moroder is like a super stylish robot surfing around rings of planets with giant roller-beam skates, while another robot bro is vibing out on the guitar and just like smiling and shit.

Within is like what would happen if the robot started staring out at an astral cluster of some kind and questioned whether riding around planet rings and vibing super hard is truly fulfililling. Sad robot crooning but also vibing sort of.

I'll do the rest some other time maybe.

Madonna might have the upper hand in cultural impact and influence, but when it comes to genuinely amazing and infinitely danceable pop music, nobody does it better than Kylie.

Although the SAW stuff is mostly pretty bad.

Suburban & Coke - It's My Party And I'll Get High If I Want To

"Pot punk" side project for Burgs from Grim Fandango. I'd post the album cover but it's kinda gross.
