My primary phone is an android but I actually have an iPhone through work, so I get the best experience out of Apple Music sometimes.

I’ve been a Spotify user for a long time, and never liked Apple Music, especially how it sometimes messed up with my local library (I still have a ton of songs on iTunes). It would be inconvenient to change, but then again principles should outweigh convenience I guess. I might save my playlists and cancel my family account. Fuck this. What a world. Thinking that Joe Rogan is more important than historical figures like Neil Young or Joni.

Glad to see their stock free falling.

That used to be a complaint of mine but they resolved it a couple years ago.

That’s good to know. I’m on a free Apple Music subscription for another few months and might just switch over then.

YouTube Music is such a fucking disappointment, but I'm never getting rid of it because I'm not going back to YouTube with ads.

I will continue to hold out hope that they'll fix it one day, or for some reason decide to restore Google Play Music. (Yes, I know that Google never goes back )

I just listened to Twin Shadow's Confess for the first time in probably a decade and I finally understand why people have been disappointed by his career. I personally like where he ended up, but he really was something totally different on that first record, and it's way, way better than I remembered (not that I didn't remember it being good).

I listened back through Blur's discography the last few days for the first time in ages. I'm not sure if this is a hot take, but I don't get the acclaim for Parklife. Honestly I would put everything except the debut above it. And I much, much prefer the later albums - beginning with the S/T - above the earlier ones. Apparently that is a divide in the fandom.

I stumbled across a 90s band called "Thinking Fellers Union Local 282" on RYM. Their album Strangers from the Universe made the kind of impression on me that only happens a few times a year. They're like a cross between Meat Puppets and Built to Spill.

I was beginning to fear we would leave January without a great acoustic-female-vocalist-not-quite-folk-not-quite-rock album, but don't worry:





I'm VAGUELY familiar with the existence of Hadestown, but otherwise, I'd never heard of her before, so I was surprised to see this listed as her 8th studio album. Anyone know if it's worth going back over?

That has been corrected. Silvana Estrada's Marchita is the first album I've really loved this year. It's a beauty.

ha! I saw this morning that you were my friend on RYM that rated it and was going to ask you your thoughts, but you beat me to it. I enjoyed it quite a bit as well.


Speaking of RYM, if anyone has 2.5 hours to spend, this is QUITE good: https://rateyourmusic.com/release/al...im/a_k_a-yaya/

I just don't know how to rate an album this long. I will NEVER sit down and listen to it as an entire album again, but boy is it pleasant while it's on. Maybe at a dinner party...if I'm ever grown up enough to have one of those.

I've got exactly 2.5 hours until my first class starts, so yeah, I'll give it a go!

I've followed you on RYM eons ago!

I do think her record could be a big hit in the B&C crowd.

2.5 hours while parenting a toddler is a hard ask. But I might try it during my work-from-home days.

So far, listening to Yaya Kim has turned my classroom into a James Bond film.
