That whole “music used to sound better when I was younger” theory

That whole “music used to sound better when I was younger” theory

Here it is in a nutshell (or some similar badly used metaphor). 2013 was an amazing year for music, possibly the greatest yet. I was listening to so much and writing about so much and… well, wow. It was incredible. 2014, on the other hand, is such a rubbish year for music… now that I’m […]

The return of Everett True | 6. Nirvana ft. Kim Gordon

Lorde supplied one of the performances of the night for me. The other is this, perhaps not so surprisingly. It was always a glorious live song. Kim’s dancing and singing and enthusiasm is intoxicating. It’s totally unprofessional the way she slips over like Robert Pollard, but this lack of professionalism is why it’s such an enthralling, […]

Please, no more words. Just incredible. Ah, never mind. Maybe it might be interesting to reproduce some of the commentary on Facebook around a link to this post. Many people seem to take issue with my taste here. Everett True Steve Gullick, you heard this? 8 hrs · Like Steve Five ”Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?” – […]

Song of the Day #682 – Chorusgirl

Alone, alone, alone. Every day, when I’m walking down the street to downtown, or down the campus, I see them everywhere – the girls with the hose, the flimsy skirts, the shades and the vacant looks, laughing at their own idiocy, not feeling or seeing anything outside of their own little bubble (or cell phone) […]

Just cos I’ve slackened up on writing this series doesn’t mean I’ve stopped listening to music, y’know?

SOTD #681 – Vulture Shit

SOTD #681 – Vulture Shit

“We’re Vulture Shit…which is the worst kind of shit” I’d been a-thinkin’ for a while that Sleaford Mods, the post-punk rant rap sensation sweeping the UK nation, deserved the Collapse Board treatment. But three things happened this week that shut down this idea. 1. This Guardian article, which basically claims that the NEW THANG will […]

Song of the Day #680 – Dog Chocolate

“DOG CHOCOLATE, DOG CHOCOLATE, ISN’T FIT FOR CONSUMPTION” It’s best when new bands just slap ya in the face. Like when this rabid bloke from Dog Chocolate cries that he wants to give birth. “I know it will hurt, and I know it will bleed / but I really, really, really, really, really wanna breed”. […]

Song of the Day #679 – BADBADNOTGOOD

Song of the Day #679 – BADBADNOTGOOD

First, to be perfectly clear – before you go a-whinin’ that you’ve heard this one before – BADBADNOTGOOD changed the game. They stormed the crumbling ramparts of jazz fusion and elevated urban beats to unprecedented heights. When they jam, it ain’t smug baroque showboating. It’s now or never. Kick ass and run like hell. Keep […]
