Pitchfork's "honourable mentions" and "top 40 metal albums" lists are out.

I read one of the two.

I'd never heard it.

Still have only heard about 45 seconds of it. There wasn't anything special about those 45 seconds.

There is a Murder She Wrote boardgame, and I have played it. The idea is that one person is a murderer and the other players have to catch them before they kill everyone on a holiday island and escape via jetski. Recommended!

K. Lamar gets P4K's top prize. Thought it would be Frank Ocean, but there you go.

Nice placing for Fiona, and good to see Swing Lo Magellan crack the top 15.

They should rename their album cover lists, absolute worst covers and the worst cover honorable mention list. How can you tell me the cover of good kid maad city isn't on there just because they have a ridiculous love affair with that thing?

Because it represents the album damn well. The album cover of Good Kid is of a young, impressionable Kendrick (looking very uncomfortable) surrounded by his family and their friends, who are depicted almost entirely as crooks and sociopaths in the album. His uncle, who's holding him in the pic, was murdered when Kendrick was in his early teens, if the narrative is to be believed. The plot of the record is about how Kendrick deals with the violence and crime around him and how he gets sucked into it and turns into a real shithead, only to find his way out basically by luck, so that picture is a great summation of it.

Hell, it's not just some instagrammed picture of a cat or a pair of shoes or something, so that's good.

Just got back from seeing him tonight. It was fucking awesome to see a hungry young rapper do his thing... I've seen a lot of older rappers go through the motions. Backseat Freestyle was absolutely fucking ridiculous, the clear highlight, but what's amazing is even here in Australia the crowd knew just about every word to nearly every song, Section.80 or good kid m.A.A.d city. Swimming Pools, Money Trees, Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe and Backseat Freestyle all got massive responses. And he was genuinely loving it too, almost like he was in awe of how much love he was getting from a crowd on the other side of the world just two or so months after releasing his first album proper. Before he left for the night he said "no matter how big this shit gets I'm always gonna come back here".

The only problem I had with it is the same problem I've had with pretty much every hip-hop gig I've ever seen sans Kanye and Jay-Z, and that was the music just does not translate as well live. The bass is obviously heavy as fuck but you couldn't hear the music itself in Money Trees, nor could you hear the horns in Rigamortis.

A small complaint though. The dude is going places and going there fucking quickly. Easily the best of the young upcoming rappers for mine. Fucking stoked it was Pitchfork's number one, it's an incredible album.

Guess I'm going to have to listen to that damn album. Couldn't get past how atrocious his performance on Conan was, never gave it a shot aside from one or two songs.

It's a great number one. I'm glad he got it over Frank Ocean.
