"Music has the potential to transcend our differences. It can return us to our true nature of warm-heartedness."

Earlier today, I had the honour of celebrating the Dalai Lama's 85th birthday with my ill mother by her bedside, and in our moment of tranquillity, we recited the “om mani padme hum” mantra together in the hopes of a brighter future. To say I was taken aback by 'Inner World' would be an understatement. What's more enriching is perhaps what it represents. ... read more
A letter to Flex Entertainment.

Hello, my name is Pipe, or Ryan, choose whichever.

I'm writing to you today because I listened to your compilation record recently. I've heard through the grapevine that you want to reach out outside of your following on AOTY.org and become a more of a serious label that houses Rap and RnB music which starts its foundations on the internet. And as a concept, I am enamored with that idea. I agree that there should be more space within the internet to be more ... read more
I’ve come to the realization that 100gecs is one of those rare acts that are both overhyped and underrated at the same time. And what I mean by that is there are just as many people saying this is the absolute worst shit they’ve ever heard as there people saying that this is the next big thing in music.

Which side are you on?
Hmmm, it seems to me that people might actually really like this.....allow me to ruin that as I now explain why I believe this to be one of the worst albums of the year.

First off this has no religious or cultural significance to me, I'm approaching this through the gaze of an idiot American. So take that in context when I say I don't care, I just don't care about the Dalai Lama. This album does not present me with anything to care about or connect to.

I walked into this with the the idea ... read more
There is literally nothing good about this album it's some of the most useless drivel I've ever heard and honestly if you rate it above a 10 I'm going to assume you're lying.
100 Gecs are considered one of the best artists of recent history, writing some of the most influential and intellectual music of the past century. They have singlehandedly restarted the craze of music and brought the entire world together with their insightful lyricism.

With their major debut success with 1000 Gecs last year, receiving hundreds of awards and still receiving praise to this day, Gecs return with their long awaited remix album, an album awaited by millions, an album that would ... read more
The History of the Albums - n° 179

Even if we don't know the character, nor his music, when we look at this cover we clearly feel through it a seriousness, a kind of elegance and a man who seems very intellectual. In the end, we can say that it sums up Bill Evans, one of the most important intellectuals in jazz, perfectly. However, this cold and sullen cover probably illustrates the loss of his partner, Scott LaFaro, one of the most promising and gifted bassists in the history of jazz, who ... read more

It's always fascinating to discuss and observe an individual's opinion when you're thinking about how you perceive and interpret art and entertainment in totally different ways. For example, you have the two extremes, on the one hand you have the individual who listens to the radio to hear the latest trend hit and on the other hand you have the art loving individual who spends his weekends and free time cultivating himself. Are you going to tell me that I'm ... read more

Good god.

In the AOTY community, there are multiple artists that are being held in high regard as musicians/artists who have have been testing what user generated content can be, and pushing the bounds of independent artists. Orchid, RockGati, and Ken M, just for examples.

And then, there is one artist that seem to be unanimously adored in the AOTY Camp. An artist that seems to have acceded from just mere 'AOTY Artist' to become a legitimate artist whose output ... read more
Gec Get Got.

Usually I don't look deeply into remix albums. And by usually, I mean I never look deep into remix albums. And why should I? What nearly every remix record I've ever listened to has never wowed me or blown me away in any decent way. Usually it's just the artists friends or label mates doing them a solid to remake these tracks in a way that just suits their style, and doesn't really make for all of that a compelling listen half the time. Hence, I let the artists have their fun, but ... read more
(Edit) The streaming version has a much more cleaner mix than the Bandcamp version. I'd recommend listening to this on Bandcamp first.

Cloud Rap is sometimes a hard genre to describe and pin down. You could say it was birthed by Lil B and various underground producers or you could say it was unintentionally created by Viper (Which is the correct option). But we can all agree that its offshoots are quite hit or miss. Its popular Emo form in the mainstream industry is usually the epitome of ... read more
Mr. Reagan,
Enacting the ‘War on Drugs’, you singlehandedly changed this nation for the worse, further dividing the rich from the poor, incriminating black, indigenous, and people of color for the smallest of drug offenses, and basically creating the world’s most populous and inhumane prison system. FUCK. YOU.
being able to suck your own dick can be a talent, but it's not a superpower

big big bullshit
A really strange track, that feels really unique to both Cudi's and Slim's styles. I appreciate how different this is. Great instrumental... decent lyrics... yeah I like this
Dalai Lama can spit bars for days. I think my favourite line on the album would be:

"My dreams only work when I start training my dragon
It seems my coldly way of words is how I retain my right to braggin', wonder what would happen
If you'd prefer to be burdened by my words and other dirty slurs and flirty verdicts, would you still return?"

You can tell he takes so much influence from rappers like Andre 3000, MF DOOM and Eminem. It drives me crazy that people don't take him ... read more

"Crack-Up" is, by far, the most difficult album I've ever listened to. For whatever reason, upon more than 10 listens, I still couldn't even wrap my head around this record's complexities. Maybe there's a reason that I've avoided this for so long. Fleet Foxes are not a new name ... read more
My relationship with La Dispute is a strange one. Frankly, my relationship with emo in general is bizarre. The topic of death and depression makes me deeply uncomfortable, yet time and time again, I never fail to gravitate to the darkest of albums—Wildlife is no exception. Jordan Dreyer’s lyrics & performance on this album is fucking relentlessly, almost agonizingly sad, and I love every single moment of it.

This record is strangely cathartic, even though I relate with very few ... read more

It's crawling in this peaceful korean forest. We enters through crystalline chords coming from nothingness, accompanied by this kind of rattling that blurs the tracks between the organic and the mechanical, Stakhanovist woodpecker or old bicycle with a dead leaf stuck in the wheel, the lyricism of these Woodrose petals degrading between two electronic vagaries. From right to left, the sound plays with the stereo, deceiving our vigilance so well that once buried ... read more
After gaining a helluva lotta notoriety from their 2019 record "1000 gecs", the legendary, ground-breaking duo is back with an entire round of remixes and new sounds that completely transcend the sounds that they're known for. With a brighter sound all around, the record heavily relies on it's pure fun aesthetic and unrelenting nature. Let's take a trip to the GEC TREE and vibe, together.

Album #10: Soundtracks for the Blind
Genre: Experimental Rock, Post-Rock, Art Rock

It's time for album number 10 and the album that is often considered Swans absolute best album, Soundtracks for the Blind. This album is the 2nd of 3 albums that I heard previously before I started this run so I already knew what I was getting into and what this album was like. To say the least Soundtracks for the Blind is a journey, a distressing one ... read more
Impressive grandiose divine gospel testament of the past decade: the 2010s, vouchsafe every human being to the magical promise land — a pulchritudinous seraphic work of art titled “Ceremonials” by the English indie rock band “Florence + The Machine” with the main vocalist, Florence Welch and the other talented members: Isabella Summers as the keyboardist, Rob Ackroyd as the guitarist, and Tom Monger as the harpist that forms a heavenly majestic group in the music ... read more
I read a interview the other day from Matt Healy of The 1975 (because i'm that guy), who said that 'the most inspiring music is music that makes you jealous'. And by god am I green with envy. Goddamn, these two songs slap!

The first track, 'Mister Whisper', definitely gives me a Black Sabbath tinged vibe for sure. It's way more metal inspired then anything that Avenade has done up to this point, with bouncy riffs and a bigger emphasis on the melodic element to Avenade that was seen on other ... read more
Eminem killed his addition. I wish they switched up the dynamic and went for a more ambitous approach like "Guilty Conscience", just to play off each other better. But we got what we got, and I enjoyed what these two brought to the table. It could have been much worse.

Excited for a new project, Cudder.
