Saw Strand of Oaks at Loufest over the weekend, they put on a very fun show. Anybody else into them?

The new Silversun Pickups album is pretty good, I'm really digging it. AND that Phantogram/Big Boi collab EP is out today too. I quite like it but can see why it might be a bit divisive

I strongly disliked neck of the woods and like this new album a lot. A bit too glossy at times but Nightlight and everything after it is great I thought.

Spoon and Billy Idol were the best shows I saw this year. Unfortunately Ludacris was the worst by far.

Joywave was a really fun show despite disliking their album.

Joywave is so much better live. Their album is weirdly flat but their show is very energetic. The frontman worked the crowd like nothing when I saw them open for the kooks

M83's new single is out. It is cool and fun.

Just got back from seeing M83. I guess their new album kind of got a lukewarm reception but it was a fantastic show. New material was all really good too. Road Blaster was definitely a highlight.

So this guy named Moses Sumney has gotten some press as of late, having played PMF a couple weekends back.

Some of his stuff was produced by Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor. A bit of a grower, but I'm enjoying tracks like:

"Pleas"
"Everlasting Sigh"
"Plastic"

Put out a five-song EP last year and some singles since then. Can't find anything concrete about plans for an LP.

His song Seeds is really good too IMHO. Also, don't confuse this guy for Bob Moses because those guys suck.

M83 is one of the best live shows I've ever seen. If you find any remote enjoyment in their music, go see them. I'm gonna be on a high from this night for a while :D

e: I took a cool pic that I like a lot



Is this from right at the end of the show? I saw them in KC and took a similar picture although not as nice as yours. Agree that it was an awesome show, encore was especially great.

If I didn't go for the openers I would have never gotten into FJM or sweet spirit. Only opener I've regretted arriving in time for is Bob Moses earlier this year, definitely not my kind of scene.

Got my Hot Thoughts LP and it's really good, which I guess is to be expected from Spoon. Pink Up is a really cool song. They've been talking about using Inside Out from the last record as a starting point for this one and it really shows.

The new Beck album is super enjoyable, highly recommend it.

I'm pretty disappointed with it honestly, the early singles are the best thing on here by a mile and it's all very one note. The idea of a pop beck album isn't inherently bad but it ended up being one idea stretched out to album length.

I've always liked upbeat Beck v:shobon:v

Like, I'll listen to this a million times before I listen to Sea Change once.

What bums me out is that i love upbeat beck too. Midnite vultures and odelay are awesome. I just don't like this new one much at all :(

Spoon and grizzly bear were awesome. Great show. Grizzly bear had a lot more energy then i expected and spoon was nothing like when i saw them touring They Want My Soul. Lot of weird interludes and extended grooove jams. Very cool.

Apologies if this is mod sass but people have been saying a song they like is A Bop lately and that is some Extremely Online poo poo that people who have never danced in their lives say.

The Sharon van etten album is really good but that run of the three singles right in the middle is so drat good it makes the rest of the album seem weak in comparison.

Girl Talk's Night Ripper was pretty good. There were some songs sampled that I had never heard of at that point, and when I have heard them after, I keep thinking the next sample is going to come next.

I also like the Readers Poll from Pitchfork. I am surprised that Tame Impala is thought of so highly. I also feel like the only person who preferred Channel Orange over Blonde, even if it is a slight preference.


This is the weirdest inclusion on the list.

Nah, channel orange is definitely better. Stay strong

Frank oceans new song is not great. But the justice remix of his new song is extremely good. Iím linking it because itís the right thing to do.

FTBC is amazing. However, pitchfork is terrible. I just checked some scores and am laughing. They underscore things just because they are popular.

At least they get Kanye scores right. (Until
They donít. His latest is not a 7).

Heís from Chicago and feeds them a bunch of hits whenever he says some awful moron poo poo. Them giving kanye a 7 is like giving any other artist the jet review
