Jason Molina is the face behind indie rock and alt-country outfit Songs: Ohia. Before the recording of the groups final record ‘The Magnolia Electric Co.’, Molina was certainly no ... read more
Edit: It’s really great. I subscribe to Daltoncore
I think “Jonas Brothers in 2023” is enough of a joke already.
Well, after a full listen tonight, it's begun to click. Just like how it seemed to take some time for so many other, this album has grown on me, to the point where I actually have a lot of positive takeaways. When WLR connects, it hits hard. There are some incredible and energetic performances on this that have, and will continue to shape trap ... read more
Edit: Yeah this really isn't all that bad! I think it will get a good amount of hate simply from the name brand association, but there's far less to overtly hate here than his previous three albums. Stepping away from his former overblown and grating production, I think this is a nice return to simplicity. Granted, there still is a serious lack of genuine emotional ... read more
Nothing over the top or groundbreaking. Nothing incredibly bold or boundary pushing. Just a damn fun pop record. I can understand in some contexts why "formulaic" can be seen as a negative, but since when does everything good need to be a reinvention? Why can't we just appreciate some music for a great refinement of an already established and successful formula, instead of expecting everything that's great to be reinventing the ... read more
'The Worm' is the second studio album from UK based art rock group HMLTD. This is a fantastical concept album about a giant worm that consumes the world and returns England to medieval feudal times... which is just about the most absurd sentence I could come up with. Though, this is beyond just a concept album: this is a full-on rock opera musical. It's theatrical, it's whimsical, it's emotional, and it absolutely BANGS. I can't even ... read more
I popped this record on last night, and after one listen, I swear I was ready to give this album something in the 40's. Usually I'm someone that tends to go with the grain, and I don't feel I have too many blistering hot takes. Though just after a first listen, I was fully expecting to take a stand against this project.
With fresh ears in the morning, I've listened to ... read more
Lana Del Rey has always been a messanger for the American dream, a window into a culture of toxicity, riches, and lust. Never has that message come across so clear and potent than on 'NFR!', where Lana's catchy songwriting mixed with the sad girl vibes has reached an all-time high. What an incredible ... read more
Post-Minimalism is a genre I don’t think I’m all that familiar with, though sounds like something that might really grow on me.
‘The Gleam’ can simultaneously be both very subtle and loud. Tracks like At Dawn and Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans both have amazing direction and an amazing mix, shifting seamlessly between ... read more
I used to think this album was universally praised before joining this site, but I can see ... read more

Obviously I've come a long way since then. 'IGOR' is a toxic masterpiece.
