Ok I've slacked on updating this lately. And by lately I mean August. I think this is my first post of the month.
That doesn't mean I haven't had my ear to the ground or the speaker or what have you. So what's going on?
1. Rock Fuckin Tember - There's just shy of a donkeyfuckton of awesome shows coming in September liiikeee ... black keys, shellac, Of Montreal, built to spill, vampire weekend, cocorosie, holy fuck ... oh and broken social scene ... all good, be there or be rectangle.
2. i knocked my most valued possession off a table. It'll going to take felony level downloading over the next few months to regain the fort knox of music back into my possession. Sad fucking times.
3. New music for august ... hmmm, i started checking out cocorosie, they're kinda weird but I think I kind of their weirdo bjork esque bulls hit.
The !!! album is aight, actually it kind of sucks. I mean it's better than listening to whatever shitbrew pop douchebaggery the radios are pumpin these days, but it's not the dance hurricane i hoped for.
The Arcade Fire album pissed me off at first. I thought every song sounded like something Bruce Springsteen would write. And I loathed all the old NJ turds who think the Boss is boss. Cause I mean he writes NJ blue collar darsh anthems ... it's not really my bag man. But then some of the tracks started to stick, and i realized ... i'm probably going to be one of those old lame aggressive dudes some day ... i suppose whiney canadian indie pop can be my Boss for now.
I think I am just really starting to hate NJ ... at least the music scene
Except ducktails, I got II and it's not bad ... I def want to check out the first album. It's pretty awkward pretentious bullshit, but it's a lot better than the shit heap that is usually forced on my ears via "in" music scenes telling me what I'm missing out on.
Besides that I'm furthering my love of Love is All ... they're a strange cross between my high school ska punk sentiments and my late 20's indie pomposity.
Also, I really want to see either shellac or black keys sept 2nd. Fate decides where i end up that night.
