This is a really fun album. I got a few songs into it before I realized it had the dreaded <1000 plays brand. It definitely will not stay this way for very long. One of my favorite things about streaming music – and I know more than a few people who will not want toContinue reading “#178 – The House of the Dancing Stairs by Goodboy INC”
This album seemed appropriate for 2020, as a refusal by a part of America to listen to accepted science is allowing Covid-19 to run rampant through the country. It is extra frustrating to hear people spewing their ignorant, conspiracy theory-laden opinions to anyone who will listen, however the acceptance of these ideas is often mind-blowing. Continue reading “#177 – Here Comes Science by They Might Be Giants”
Another day closer to an election day that seems destined for controversy and dispute. It’s hard to imagine anything else, considering the people involved. There are few fleeting moments where I can really forget about it at all, usually when listening to the daily selection, but no distraction lasts very long before the brutal realitiesContinue reading “#176 – Free Yourself Up by Lake Street Dive”
I’ve only ever really been aware of the big names in electronic music, especially EDM, so I’m always grateful for a recommendation. In this case, it came from my wheelhouse, the Spotify algorithm. A cornerstone of this blog is to take any recommendation, from any source, as long as it passes the one criteria thatContinue reading “#175 – Evocations by Rodg”
Sometimes you just have to get away from it all with some nice krautrock. Neu! was an offshoot of Kraftwerk and pioneered the “motoric” drum beat that characterizes much of the krautrock scene. Their influence on later electronic music is on full display, in this, their third studio album.
Even though the main event is still a little over a week away, today may prove to be one of the most pivotal moments in American history. With the installation of Justice Barrett, the Supreme Court now includes three people – in case you missed it, the other two are Roberts and Kavanaugh – whoContinue reading “#173 – In the Aeroplane Over the Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel”
Hawkwind is another band who most have never heard of, but who were instrumental in the course of rock history. They are cited as influences of many bands of different genres, from psychedelic to punk. They also have an impressive list of former members, with over 40 and a wiki all their own. Apparently, theyContinue reading “#172 – In Search of Space by Hawkwind”
I can’t believe I’m writing this, but the presidential debate the other night was actually watchable. Obviously, our stable genius in chief still repeated the same baseless accusations and alternative facts that spew from him anytime the attention is on someone else for a few moments, but he also was more professional that I thoughtContinue reading “#171 – Paper Television by The Blow”
Almost forgot to post this. Idiot.
I got turned onto Lizzo when her song “Cuz I Love You” was in a show and immediately piqued my interest. Her album of the same name has made frequent appearances in my listening rotation ever since I first heard it. Besides the fact that she is an amazing lyricist and performer, I really loveContinue reading “#169 – Lizzobangers by Lizzo”
