Welp. That LCD Soundsystem presale didn’t go over well.

Nope. I got completely locked out. Managed to snag two tickets for Mitski though, so that’s something at least! Might go for Big Thief tickets this Friday too.

I know this was directed at Laz, but Prince had a great comeback double shot with Musicology and 3121, both very solid albums. He'll no doubt agree with the rating bump.

Yeah, the real crime here was the 6.0 rating for 3121, which is for me his best album since The Gold Experience. Of course, nearly everyone (in mainstream white music criticism) has underrated Prince’s post-Warner Bros output. There may not be any outright masterpieces, but plenty of great material on The Rainbow Children, Planet Earth, Art Official Age and those other two to merit higher ratings.

Christgau, at least, gave 3121 an A-, and I sure as hell trust him on Prince over the stooges at Pitchfork.

I am still yet to hear a Strokes record in full. From what I've heard of Is This It, I just don't need that in my life.

Lust for Life, the Girls song, is pretty awesome.

Outside of a few songs, The Strokes never did much for me until last year. The New Abnormal was one of my favorite albums of 2020. I tend to gravitate towards the weirder projects of the garage rock revival. Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino is the only Arctic Monkeys album I’ve really loved, for example.

This boxset is pretty fucking sweet, I think I'll get it. I'll be chucking Hours straight out the fucking window, but lot of good content on here, including Toy and Buddha of Suburbia. https://www.davidbowie.com/blog/2021...-press-release

Well, I was going to, until I saw the vinyl set is $679 from one of two Australian stores stocking it the other has it at $1,040

it works out cheaper to buy it from Bowie's site and ship it. $632 Australian.

Random Music Talk CXXIX: Gump attends a concert

After my disaster Wilco show in the middle of a hurricane, I finally delivered on this thread’s title. Saw Waxahatchee last night and it was so good to be back watching a show. Also somewhat of a relief to have a vaccine mandate and pretty good mask compliance in a small indoor venue that was packed. It’s the last week of their tour, so no surprises that the band is pretty tight right now. The Saint Cloud songs were awesome live - I didn’t realize how popular Lilacs and particularly Fire were. Loud singalong at the venue. She has rearranged her older songs to have more of an Americana feel for this tour - a bit jarring to see these versions of La Loose, Misery Over Dispute and especially Silver (total transformation there). It was fun, though I do hope she goes back to the rougher rock edges at some point. Her covers are top notch too, closing with Dolly Parton’s Light of a Clear Blue Morning was super fun.

I thought I had aged past concerts, but not the case yet. Japanese Breakfast next on Sunday.

Looking forward to your Japanese Breakfast review. You'll have a blast. She's been covering Dolly Parton as well lol

I have Wilco with Faye Webster at the Hollywood Palladium coming up on the 23rd.

Speaking of concerts, has anyone ever seen Magnetic Fields live? I'm debating a series of shows they have here in November.

I think you and most of us here are of a certain breed that will likely never age past concerts.

I know IWB has seen them and/or Merritt solo in the past and talked about them here, and spoke very favorably about them.
