Julien baker is that rare artist who has been putting out insane quality stuff since day one. So far, this is her third album, and while she’s expanded her sonic palette a little bit from Sprained Ankle and Turn Out The Lights, the quality remains almost identical.

I love the new direction she’s heading and this album, stunning as it is, feels only like she’s figuring out what her limits are musically. Every song here is lyrically similar, painting a vivid and inescapable ... read more

Like this quite a bit. Sweet message, good production and interesting vocal mix that works.

Love this album. Clairo’s immunity but more consistent. Deeply Frank lyrics that are a little ennui filled, but to its benefit. More to come upon some more discerning listens but so far, I love every track individually and the album feels special if not quite a masterpiece.

I’m really digging this one having listened to 4 of the 6 tracks. Waiting for rough trade to finally ship vinyl to listen to the rest as I get to know Weather Station a bit more intimately, but with 2/3 of this listened to, I can’t help but be reminded just how underrated Crack Cloud’s Pain Olympics is. Not the EXACT same genre or idea, but close enough to be clear that not enough users gave Pain Olympics the time and adoration it deserves. Will score this and review a bit ... read more

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

The final song to an album is one of the most important things to an album. To make you feel satisfied, an album closer has to look at everything an album has done an say "hey, how am I gonna make a satisfying ending to this story?". Album closers are hard to make and many don't feel like what they should. It takes a lot of talent for an artist to wrap of their own piece of work and make a listener feel satisfied.

Which leads me to my question. What is your favorite album Closer/Finale of all Time and why?

Hello friend, I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!

So let’s say, hypothetically you were up at 3am on a rainy night and it’s really quiet. What album would you proceed to put on for your 3am sad session?
and yeah this is for a list

THANKS FOR 200 FOLLOWERS!!!!! 😊

After some years of avid music listening, I am finally comfortable saying that Destroyer is my all time favorite artist! ❤️ ♥️ 💜

I don’t typically rate albums I don’t like, so mostly a display of what I like to varying degrees. Some disappointments I looked forward to may get bad ratings. Check out my Letterboxd, it’s got about 1/5th of the movies I’ve seen.
