I've had an enormous amount of faith in Black Midi since late in 2019. It took me several listens for my feelings about 'Schlagenheim' to be fully realized, and I really think it is one of the best debut records of the 2010's. I had no idea where they could possibly go, simply due to the fact that their debut really was such a swirl of experiments with no singular thread tying them down to a specific genre or style of music.

The labels of 'post-punk' and 'art rock' were as ... read more

The special is a masterpiece, and the songs are collectively entertaining, witty, and fantastic as well. Not really a song I 'disliked', but Shit was definitely the least enjoyable for me. So many amazing songs here and goddamn this special....

Favorite Tracks: Comedy, How the World Works, White Woman's Instagram, Unpaid Intern, Sexting, Look Who's Inside Again, Problematic, Don't Wanna Know, Welcome to the Internet, That Funny Feeling, All Eyes On Me, Goodbye

Least Favorite: Shit

Willow's first full solo venture into the world of pop punk and alt rock is, to my delight, an absolute smash.

I was initially turned off by the level of praise i saw 't r a n s p a r e n t s o u l' receive and struggled to find much enjoyment out of it (at least on the level many others were getting). And this level of expectation really kneecapped the experience for me.

Planet Her is careless fun with a case of multiple personality disorder; where her soft, melodic, and intimate side prevails so much stronger than the callous, reckless, and edgy side.

Favorite Tracks: Naked, Payday, I Don't Do Drugs, Love to Dream, Been Like This, Alone, Kiss Me More

Least Favorite: Ain't Shit

Why do you believe who will cut our hair when we're gone is an 100? I'm genuinely curious since I love the record but never really feel it reached its full potential as an album.

"100" is basically a 95 but with an incredibly strong personal attachment.

Post Punk, New Wave, Alternative Dance, Alt Rock (in the 2000's at least), and Synthpop. Hook and Bernard accomplished a lot after starting out in the gloomiest of situations. Here is what I think ...
