I can't stop listening to the La La Land soundtrack. Only thing I've listened to for the past 3 days straight.

TV on the Radio - Province

This is one of my favorite songs. I wish my words were enough to explain why I think this is pure, unrestrained genius, but this song has permeated my consciousness and continued to enchant me to such a degree that I don't think I can quite sum it up so easily. I just truly love it.

The Mars Volta - Eriatarka

I'm on a Jon Theodore kick, and this album nicely displays his powerful drumming. It helps that I'm on team "The Mars Volta Doesn't Suck", as it's easy to forget how polarizing a lot of their material was.

Cave In - Joy Opposites

It's a bummer that this tune and the record it occupies, Antenna, was so polarizing for fans. Cave In explores a whole new facet of heavy music each time they set out to make a record, so this much more accessible space prog joint probably did seem odd to longtime fans. Well, here we are with the benefit of hindsight and none of that pesky self- righteous fan entitlement, and this record is clearly a lost rock and roll classic. It deftly spins hooks into each and every shred of the arrangement while carefully layering and layering until your speakers are bleeding gorgeous guitar parts and planet- crushing choruses all over the mother.

Intronaut - The Unlikely Event of a Water Landing

Intronaut has serenaded my last couple of hours of internet browsing and hanging about. They are a good band for serenading. It is mostly because of the balls-heavy riffs and serpentine drumming.

Rival Sons - Tied Up

Too many modern psychedelic throwback bands either noodle off into oblivion Or oversimplify the arrangements that made their idols sound so huge. Not these guys. I dig it.

Lil Yachty - One Night

OK. I get it now. I get it. I understand the appeal of Lil Yachty. There's a likable give-no-**** silliness to the whole thing. I get it now.

^RIGHT?! I admit I was a little, uh, impaired, the first time I heard Yachty, but because of that I was immediately like "oh **** yes, this dude is breaking down that whole ******** macho image in a weird way and I like that". Anything that feels like it was sort of trying to make me laugh with it gets credit from me.

Pearl Jam - Even Flow

weirdly obsessed right now with examining the differences between how all of PJ's drummers do this one. it's a simple, pulsing groove, the base upon which a lot of kick-snare patterns that followed in the 90s was built, but every one of them has a totally different stylistic approach and it's really cool. i personally love how Jack Irons chooses to pull the groove into a very very tight pocket, which contrasts with the full-speed-ahead onslaught of Dave Abbruzzese, the push and pull swing of the original Dave Krusen recording, and the rock-steady sort of proggy sheen of Matt Cameron. drummers r gr8

Manic Street Preachers - If You Tolerate This, Your Children Will Be Next

This song worked its way into my subconscious mind and has stayed firmly stuck on repeat there for years.
