2016 Music

A hit-or-miss hodgepode of hyperbolicism...

I think live will be fine. I know a girl that is an Avett superfan who went off on the Satan song on FB. They've been playing it live for awhile now and it was nothing like this album version.

Yeah I just had a buddy tell me Satan Pulls The Strings is "amazing" live, but "def sucks on the album".

*Band of Horse... pretty good... loved the song "Whatever, Wherever"
*Fitz and the Tantrums... eh, didn't do much for me
*Peter Bjorn and John... not bad... not completely my kind of music, but I enjoyed some of it... not that familiar with them outside of the "whistle song" (aka "Young Folks")
*New Parquet Courts... this band just does not do much for me... I find their songs boring and lacking much of a "musical" quality... this new album seems to be just like their two previous albums
*Violent Femmes... really didn't even know they were still around but since Kevin heaped praise for their new record I gave it a listen... not bad at all...kind of weird in a few spots but an enjoyable release... would probably make a top 10 for me at year's end because I don't know if I'll even have 10 records I really like
*Chance the Rapper... was not familiar with him at all, but I loved about half of it (the ones that had a more old school R&B feel, and in some spots, almost a Gospel feel)... and some of it was garbage

BTW... I think 21 Pilots is quite possibly the worst new band in many, many years... worse than Creed, worse than that shitty band that wrote that shitty "Crazy Bitch" song... just terrible, awful garbage.

Haha I actually like one of their songs, but I'd agree on the rest. Mans I haven't thought about Creed in quite some time, they were awful.

Went and looked up 21 Pilots on Spotify. That is terrible. Who in the hell is listening to that?

Somehow 21 Pilots was the darling of ACL reviews last year.

I've had an unexplainable Chainsmokers run lately. No idea where it came from, and yes I realize this makes me a basic white bitch.

I am disappointed in you. I think Chainsmokers should be forced to change their name because Chainsmokers sounds like some badass band that would sound like Grand Funk Railroad instead of the faggy bullshit they actually sound like.

Saturday in Dallas was kinda meh. Performance was great as always, but they played a lot of new stuff and nothing off the masterpiece that is Emotionalism. Of all their shows I've seen this was def my least favorite. Also may have had to do with venue. It was a Gexa. They didn't sell anything on the lawn so I immediately question why they didn't play a smaller venue. It was also hotter than the Devils cock out there.

Yeah everyone there last night that was also in Dallas (there were a lot) said it was pretty miserable out there. They played 5 off of Emotionalism. Also Mama Tried which was pretty great.

Don't remember them playing handing me down tune. Do remember Salina now that you mention it and forgot that Love and Hate was on Emotionalism.

The replacement for Fun Fun Fun Fest is too expensive and too far from Austin. I'd like to see RTJ and Courtney Barnett, but I'm not driving an hour and a half round trip and paying $300.

Yeah, slogged my way through the full Avett album today and most of it was tough to get through. I did like the last two tracks. Jake Bugg's new album was not very good on the first listen (if you're not familiar with him check out 2013's Shagri-La... great singer-songwriter stuff with a harder edge).

Light on the Lake by Whitney (former members of Smith Westerns, who had a decent album a few years ago followed by a terrible sophomore release followed by permanent hiatus) was really good. I've listened through it 4-5 times the past few days.

blink-182... no.

I'm really digging the Banks & Steelz album (Paul Banks from Interpol + RZA)

Excited to see them at ACL before Radiohead at the Samsung stage

The new Dinosaur Jr is really solid. Looking forward to the show tonight.
