I somehow heard so much of Dexys back in the day here in the US. I've definitely heard "Geno" before though I don't know from where, and "Come on Eileen" still managed to be everywhere 30-40 years later. This album's potency thus doesn't come as that much of a surprise, but its consistency sure does considering Dexys Midnight Runners are not a band well remembered beyond the two songs I just named (the two biggest singles the band ever had).

I'm going to review Too-Rye-Ay ... read more

If I end up in a dark forest one day and hear any second of this, I'm going to immediately look for ways to get out of there so that this death cult doesn't get to me first.

Though the 12-minute cut "The Herald" is probably too beautiful and enrapturing that I would just fall into that trap anyways. Oops.

Stereolab is such a fun band, and I have to say ETK nails the vibe this band has given off throughout their entire career in one single album. It's almost too consistent in tone (though it jumps styles a lot) for it to be a favorite (I'm personally more partial to "Transient" and "Dots and Loops") but this is a great starting point for their discography, honestly!

Also I will gladly jump on the hype train for Cybele's Reverie. It's just that good.

The Dalai Lama's residence in the city of Dharamshala is about a thousand miles from where my parents are from, also in India. Yet to say he himself doesn't have a massive impact on the lives of the Indian population is kind of a lie.

The last time I was in India, in 2015, I had the opportunity to visit the Namdroling Monastery, a major Tibetan Buddhist teaching center buried deep in the forest there. I was in my mid-teens at the time, so I didn't remember too much except for one opportunity ... read more

I've had a hard time justifying this being a Beach House fan. Not this album, but this rating.

I remember a time when Depression Cherry didn't really interest me and I would always gravitate to this release. I guess now, that contrast has completely flipped and I ADORE DC and am a lot more mixed on this one.

On one hand, some of Beach House's best songs ever are on this one -- the driving "All Your Yeahs", the stunning "The Traveller", the progressive "Elegy to the ... read more

Hey! Sorry to bug you, but I just finished a new little EP and I’d love some feedback on it if you have the time! I tried to keep a somewhat dreamy and funky sound throughout and I’m very proud of how it turned out. Also, this is a big experiment for me so I’d like to know your favourite and least favourite tracks and why.
