The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
90
CLASSIC SATURDAYS #3

I feel like how truly absurd Beatlemania was can get lost on modern listeners.

Genuinely, I think there has yet to be a cultural phenomenon bigger than The Beatles were at their peak. I mean, these four goobers had 73.4 million live viewers watching the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. Excluding sports events, that makes it the 15th most-watched live television broadcast of all time, squished right between the Grand Opening of Disneyland in 1955 and the first presidential ... read more

CLASSIC SATURDAYS #2

How J. Dilla Turned The Sampler From a Tool to an Instrument

My favorite thing to do relating to Dilla, aside from listening to his work, is reading stories about the way he made music. One of my favorite Dilla stories was told by Questlove a couple of years after Dilla had passed. It was early 1999 and Questlove was visiting Detroit. He had planned to leave on a Monday, but after a blizzard took Detroit by storm, bringing down 7 inches of unexpected snow, his flight got ... read more

The Youtube Rap —> Folktronica pipeline is real

*Quadeca and Brakence shooting hoops in the Hivemind Studio*

Quadeca: Try to get UNDER MY SKIN, I bet you can’t!
Breakance: “Hahaha bro, you can try to shoot it A LA CARTE, but you’re a HYPOCHONDRIAC, you’ll never make it!”
Quadeca: “U DONT KNOW ME LIKE THAT, I MAKE IT LOOK EFFORTLESS! Watch this!”

*Quadeca shoots a three-pointer and sinks it*

Quadeca: You see? I HAVE WAY TOO MANY FRIENDS! ... read more

CLASSIC SATURDAYS #1

Pet Sounds: The Album That Redefined Pop Music

Something that’s always frustrated me is how, once you distance yourself from discourse with music nerds, The Beach Boys’ contributions to music are consistently undermined with any influence the band may have had being lost on less enlightened listeners. General audiences whittle their legacy down to the beach bum facade that only marked their first few years as a collective; they're known in households as the ... read more

New Order - Power, Corruption & Lies
80
I sent my friend a list of my top 10 New Order songs with Age of Consent at #1. He texted back "age of consent should be lower" and honestly I don't know which interpretation of that sentence is more of a fucking crime.

Fun story: When I was in subdivision soccer as a child, a bunch of other kids used to bully me and call me "Chode-y" instead of my real name Cody. Pretty funny but mean and thankfully I didn't know what that meant until 2 years later. Ignorance is bliss.

Heya Chode, about a month or 2 ago, I made my first YouTube vid about the worst albums of last year. Decided I wanna spread it on the site more to get more people to see it. Hope you’ll enjoy the video as much as I had fun making it :).

The best of list is a bit delayed, but it’ll be sure to be released in the coming month. Do let me know what you think of it.

Hi chodinger!
This is my 4th full album (salt/copper). It’s split up into two parts (salt and copper) the first being more acoustic with electronic elements (salt) and the second just fully electronic (copper), with instrumentals at the beginning, middle, and end. I’d appreciate a listen so much and a rating and review even more, even it’s super negative, any feedback whatsoever is sosososososo appreciated. Thank you!

I have to thank you for always give some love in my almost ridiculous comments, if someone acclaimed like you and others who occasionally give some support is because I'm on the right path of really starting to write really well, I only discovered this site in 2019 and it made me change my view on music completely, there are things that I listen to today and can't like, but about 10 years ago it would have been on my most listened list of the year.

Hey Chode, thank you so much for checking out my review for 'I Didn't Mean To Haunt You'. I see your reviews everywhere on this website so it's pretty cool to me that you gave one of mine some love :)
