Rah Rah is calling it quits. They were a pretty small Canadian band, but were tour friends with quite a few thread favorites including Dear Rouge. One of the longest drives I've ever done was to see them and Dear Rogue in this tiny EDM venue. Sucks to see bands die.

I have no idea who Noah Gundersen is but stumbled upon him during my weekly KEXP perusal.

First two songs and last two songs are pretty different. Some good synth-y-country-pop-tunes.

I love Slothrust. One of my favorite bands.

My wife took me to see them for my birthday a couple weeks ago at the Tabernacle in Atlanta. It was almost therapeutic for me. I've had their last 3 albums on heavy rotation for years. Leah's lyrics tend to knock the poo poo out of me. I've listened to this song a million times.

spotify consistently says my #1 genre is "freak folk," and considering i've never once heard that term used to describe anyone besides devendra banhart (who i don't listen to), i'm starting to think it's some sort of glitch. how can my #1 artist be Marvin Gaye and my #1 genre be Freak Folk

I somehow hosed up Spotify's metrics or something because it said my artist of the year is Madvillain and that I listened to them for a whopping 2 hours. I listened to Madvillainy once this year and it's nowhere near that length. Off the top of my head I can name six or seven Swans releases I listened to in 2019, one of which is over 2 hours on its own. My top song was a Slowthai song. I've listened to that album once through.

It was probably correct in saying Bruce Springsteen was my artist of the decade though.

Because of my wife mine was skewed a bit. I like Musgraves but not to be in my top 5, she also surely helped with Wild Nothing.

Every year my top genre is noise pop, my top artists/songs are always hip hop. Which kinda makes sense since i don't listen to as many rappers, but the ones I like I REALLY latch on to.


My song of the decade was Baby I'm Bleeding by JPEGMAFIA, haha.

Not at all surprising. Though it doesn't reflect my late-in-the-year obsession with Canadian rock/pop bands like The Beaches. And also local band Beach Bunny.

I also like Beach Slang.

Beach Bunny exploded this year. They drew a decent crowd to start a mini fest in January, then they sold out a headliner pretty quick here last month. Im excited to see where they go.

What is hyperpop? Apparently I'm into it. I have Spotify Japan so it skews things heavily.

Edit: I guess hyperpop is essentially PC Music and Kero Kero Bonito?

It said I listened to 3 hours of Sleater-Kinney when I've listened to their new album like 20+ times easily vv

And it said Kendrick Lamar was my top artist of the decade, which is probably technically incorrect, but I'll take it.

A friend of mine said he also listened to Madvillainy once and it said he listened to them for 35 hours. I guess it makes me feel better that they suck at data tracking.
