Find Me On:
ms. fortino has outdone herself. this song is fucking beautiful.
me, too, on both accounts.
these guys are quickly becoming one of my favorite new bands. this song (like nearly all of the songs they’ve released to date) is tops. can’t wait to cop this single.
apparently. i’m in total agreement.
DOOM > most rappers
incredible find, brando. AND IT’S COMING OUT ON DRAG CITY? awesome!
this is sad news, and at the risk of being selfish, i have to say that i wish it didn’t have to be so. but, at the same time, when your hero says he’s riding off into the sunset (at least from a music-world standpoint), all you do is tip your hat.
i wish him luck in all his future endeavors. but, a writer as wildly talented as berman would hardly need such a concept as foolhardy as “luck.”
the first sentence of this post says it all. the thermals could very well be the most consistent indie-punk band around. i’m so stoked for this album.
“the wrong coat for you mt. heart attack” and “meat grinder” both made their way onto the portrait, so it’s definitely not all mainstream stuff.
you know, i’ve always thought that people with double-digit IQ’s shouldn’t be allowed to use the internet.

Score = 1,000,000
my thoughts exactly.
those grouper and valet records are too good.
you’re right, brando: cats are sleeping on this album. it’s great.
for the last couple months, wavves has been my new favorite band. everything nathan has put out so far is incredible. very good choice, brando.
i love this, brando. with crystal stilts and these guys, slumberland’s roster is starting to look pretty unfuckwithable.
he leaves his number and e-mail and (i think) address, too. although i’ve gotten into a tiff with the web sheriff over a hold steady track posted on a friend’s blog, i never felt the urge to call the number and see if it was real.
although some inclusions (mariah, katy perry, metallica’s absurdly high placement) is typical of blender, the list is actually a lot better than i expected it to be. a lot.
between this, the “reckoner” remix, and his album, flying lotus is totally pwning 2008.
“This upgrade works wonders on an already good song.”
the secret to making sure your pants don’t fall off your ass: keep your legs spread pretty far apart. the only downside is that you have to waddle instead of walk.
that’s all i got.
i’ve been waiting my whole life for someone to sing in the perspective of toad. leave it to my all-time favorite songwriter to come through for me.
the whole t-pain autotune fuckery is one trend in rap that got old REALLY quickly. it’s sort of a shame that the mainstream rappers that are actually GOOD don’t want to rap anymore: they just want to sing badly and make their voices sound like a cheap alternative to using a vocoder.
when you catch their show, you won’t be disappointed. they’re pretty nuts live; so energetic.
