This year has been so slow with new releases. I haven't loved anything yet. At this point last year I think I had already 2-3 favorites.

Well Beach House is coming out soon.

Really liked those Yard Act clips. I think I'd seen them mentioned elsewhere before as being more punk but definitely going to check out the album now.

I don't know why they're getting the Post Punk labeled slapped all over them. I guess Sleaford Mods is also labeled as Post Punk, but that's not what I think of when I hear that genre tag. There needs to be a tag for this UK spoken word genre. It does also remind me of The Streets, though it's not hip hop. Just another band I thought of while I was listening to it.

I couldn't get past the cover of Leãozinho. Cool choice of a song, but that did not work.

IDK why, but I have already heard SO many albums from this year, and overall I do agree it's been a little bit of a slow start, but we're only one month in. I agree, with LeMel, though, the three best albums so far are Yard Act, Hikaru Utada and The Weeknd.

I actually kinda really like Cordae's album too, but apparently that's not a cool opinion to have.

I have such a loaded concert calendar already lol

2/10 - The Wonder Years playing two of their albums in full, Spanish Love Songs and Origami Angel
2/12 - The Weather Station and Cassandra Jenkins
4/3 - Jawbreaker playing Dear You with The Lemonheads playing It's a Shame About Ray
4/30 - Car Seat Headrest
5/11 - Little Simz
5/27 - Steely Dan and Steve Winwood
9/10 - Pavement

I don't have tickets to Beach House at the Greek 4/9 or 4/10 yet because it's crazy expensive right now, but I'll buy one the night of the show. I've only seen them at festivals.

I liked it! Of course I don’t have the context that you would. However, I think the second half finishes strong.

There are some traits of The March of Zapotec that I liked. I remember at the time wanting to see what he could do if he used some electronic touches in his music like he tried in some of the latter songs off that album (if memory serves). Remember that bit of late 00s thing when every indie band wanted to use a drum machine?

Serious question: should one cancel their Spotify subscription?

Nice to see Joni join Neil Young.

I wonder how many more artists will do the same.
It’s unfortunately going to take a “bigger” name to pull some strings, but Spotify is definitely taking a hit.

I'm planning on moving to Apple Music, just need to take a day to transfer all my playlists over.

It's tempting. I admire what Neil and Joni have done. Fuck Joe Rogan. And it is bullshit that artists are paid such miniscule amounts through their system.

But Spotify is the way I consume most of my music these days. It's honestly nice and convenient to have everything in one place. I think it's a pretty easy and user-friendly interface and I'm just so used to it at this point. We'll see. I might look into other options.

I'm torn. I've pushed Travis to cancel, though, even just for a little while. That's like the whole point of capitalism, right? To speak with your wallet?

Apple Music is better anyway because you can upload your own files and they appear on your library. Like all your U2 bootlegs, for example. Plus, if you’re on iOS, the voice commands on CarPlay make it such a great driving experience.

i would like to cancel my spotify account but i'm not sure that there's another option that's as good. apple music is no bueno because we have all android phones and a 22 year old car. i wish google music was still awesome.

I’m considering it and I’ve been a long time Spotify user. I’m loathe to use Apple Music because iTunes has always been so shit. But might make sense to have iTunes and Apple Music rather than iTunes and Spotify. I’ve always hated how little they pay artists vs how much money they make. This might be the push I need.

Fuck Joe Rogan.

Waiting for Laz to march in here all high and mighty for never using it in the first place
