I have a lot of bizarre hot takes with this album. I mean, I still like it overall but I think the songs are like are somewhat scattershot across the entire tracklist. I also find this album relies more on sparse tension, but I don't really think clipping is that good at executing it (I guess I like them more for their intensity?)

I actually kind of expected I would have the opposite reaction (loving this and liking less "Addiction to Blood") but it is what it is, I guess. I really ... read more

For as pensive as some of its subject matter tends to get, "songs" sounds like the auditory feeling of the sun rising over your face.

Lenker creates wonderful and honest tunes, and her unique voice pairs well with the bright and flourishing guitar on the album. It's an album that thus feels like it's opening up to you in a really ear-grabbing and important way for it.

I found no tracks that I disliked on this album, really. I thought it was one of the most engaging folk albums I've ... read more

Before even getting into the meat and the substance of "Blue", Joni Mitchell's voice and vocal range are probably one of my favorites, ever. It's just so wonderful to listen to. If she hummed all of these songs instead of singing lyrics this would still be like a 80 for me, minimum. But the last thing I would ever want to discredit about her are her songwriting convictions and the stories she evokes -- because MAN, they propel these songs into the stars.

This is a wonderful album ... read more

Juju is a fantastic and (probably for its time?) cutting-edge post-punk album that takes a fantastically sly turn on dark and gothic sounds. It wastes no time pulling punches once you press play on the recording (with the frenetic and technical guitar of John McGeoch dominating "Spellbound") and runs fantastically well throughout (my favorite here is the raw, heavy, and angular "Monitor" with Siouxsie's crazed screams selling the insanity of the song to a T).

My first review in almost a week comes after almost beating myself up mentally with how much new music there is and then realizing that I need to calm down. I went back through my RYM and found that I've listened to almost 300 albums this entire year so far, so I'm trying to let some classics I've recently found sit with me and take a breather before diving into new music. Hence, this review:

The Gun Club's 1981 debut is fantastic. The idea of taking "rowdy South" music (that's a ... read more

Hey! It’s Stankysauce under my new alias Alkaline Pink with my new debut Halloween mixtape on my new label Insomnia Café! This new mixtape is by FAR my best material to date and a total change of pace from my last project Analog Autopsy. I am done with that synthwave type stuff to embrace more loud distorted sounds, as I am going industrial this time around. I tried to make it sound as dark and nasty as possible to celebrate the spooky month!
Anyways, I hope you guys like it!

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.
