Burial makes a surprising return to his more aggressive side of UK rave music, although in a completely different way. Not only is there the classic Burial sound, but it's basically the most extroverted he's ever been. It might be the first project you could put on of his for a group of people. It's the first time I've felt more inclined to put him on my speakers, rather than my headphones.

Favorite Track: Indoors

Behind every tiny America's Got Talent girl who "writes her own songs," there's a fleet of sweaty bald men behind basically all the production on this album, save for that cringy ukelele.

7/29/17 Fleet Foxes and Animal Collective at Merriweather Post Pavilion

Animal Collective was disarmingly on-point during their very oddly-chosen setlist. I’d seen videos of their concerts, and was honestly pretty nervous. From what I gathered, they were like Bob Dylan – either they’re on that night, or they played the worst concert you’ve ever seen.

Thankfully, they were completely into it, playing an awesomely weird array of songs throughout their set. The most surprising (and my personal favorite) part of their set was seeing them somehow work Sweet Road and Bees into being this 10-minute tribal dance song. Loved it.

Seeing Fleet Foxes live made me have a better grasp of growing old with certain music. I learned this from the crowd. Looking in the sea of faces, I noticed people of all ages, an equal amount per generation. This was something I didn't originally anticipate, until I thought harder about their music. Listening to the harmonies of the crowd, I realized FF have a timeless quality to their music.

They are not one of those bands who make music for 20 year olds, and continue to play shows for a crowd of 20 year olds long into their 40’s. Robin will have a happy career singing those songs his entire life. Truly a timeless sound; I feel the members will appreciate with their age what a blessing it is to be able to play those songs for your whole life. Music to grow old with.

3/22/17 - Vince Staples at Newport Music Hall, Columbus, OH

8.6/10

Opener - Kilo Kish

Immediately walking into the venue, we see Wes Anderson's Life Aquatic of Steve Zissou playing on a huge screen, with Drum's Not Dead by Liars playing on the speaker. Cracked me up. Vince's music was fantastic live, and his stage presence was bizarre and entrancing. Sometimes losing his mind with the rest of us, other times not moving a muscle the entire song - staring daggers into the crowd.

The most memorable part of the show for me was watching Vince close his encore with Summertime, his saddest and slowest song. The whole song he didn't look at the crowd once - he just looked down, half mumbling the words, like we weren't even there. Crazy to see

Danny Brown at Smalls Theatre

8.8/10

Danny live was exactly how you imagine. Complete madness. We found three shoes on the floor throughout the show. Not four, but three. Danny was surprisingly on point with his raps, and almost seemed sober (doubt it though). The setlist was bizarre, as he basically went in order from oldest to newest in his discography. Dance in the Water, When it Rain, Monopoly, Break it, Handstand, and Break it. Everyone lost their minds on those ones
