I'm simultaneously much better off and more miserable in my 30s than I was in my 20s. Guess that's probably why I like The National so much.

My 30s have been way happier than my 20s, I think, although at this point (I'm 36 now) things like mortality and career choices have become way too real.

Happy birthday, Ashley. Sorry I missed it yesterday. Here's to a great new decade.

How is the new Zola Jesus? I wasn't at all interested in the last one, and I liked-ish the one song I've heard from the new one.

In case I needed another reason to think Richard Ashcroft is a giant diseased arse of a man, there's this from a recent interview with Nick McCabe:

Quote:
“At the time of ‘Forth’, when that all went to pot at the end, Jazz was still asking us to… we had dates planned in Australia and New Zealand and he told me to say, ‘Do you want to do it?’ and I said of course but only if everybody else wants to do it. What I got back from Richard via Jazz was that he said, ‘I can’t think of anything I’d rather not do’. That’s where it got left really.
The Verve's Nick McCabe discusses the state of guitar music, 'Urban Hymns', Richard Ashcroft and Oasis - NME

And to think Ashcroft then toured down here with that shitty solo project of his. Of course I didn't go. Ashcroft was always too self-absorbed to realise McCabe was the true star of the band.

I'm halfway through it now. "Soak" is a great song. No other strong opinions yet.

Honestly Mogwai album was a bit meh. it's not like it was extremely bad but it doesn't have that coolness lots of their earlier albums had

Nah it's fine. But then I don't think their acclaimed earlier work is really all that hot. Hardcore Will Never Die But You Will is the Mogwai album that's clicked the most for me.

Totally forgot about the new Mogwai. I'm sure I'll like it well enough. They're one of the most consistent bands out there. They don't have a single album that's not at least decent.

Oh cool, I've never really known anyone that's listened to them before. I get a really good 80s action movie soundtrack atmosphere out of their stuff.

yeah his newest stuff (which came out pretty recently, like less than a week ago) and it's still like synth wave mixed with hard hitting beats and lots of dynamics. it's not the most original or best thing I've listened to but I like it. it's exciting.

yeah but people here like new LCD Soundsystem album and i felt it was cheesy and too nostalgia-driven at times, so......

i do acknowledge that Pertubator is very cheesy but this album was actually quite non-cheesy

I keep forgetting just how good this year's album by Cloud Nothings is. Their best, for sure.

It's fucking great and it better not go forgotten on year-end lists.

I prefer their previous album but the new one is pretty good as well. I'm unsure if I like the "cleaner" direction they've taken but the songs are still good. Enter Entirely is one of my favorite songs of the year and it might be Cloud Nothings' best.

The album will probably be somewhere at the tail-end of my list.

Seeing reports that Grant Hart of Husker Du has died?!

Hell and he's only 56...

Appears to be the case;

Husker Du Drummer Grant Hart Dies at 56: Report | Billboard
Far too young.

Cancer, as always, sucks.

Jesus.

I didn't get into Husker Du until after hearing Bob Mould's Sugar in the early 90s, but they put together some great, seminal albums that can't be undervalued.
