No new realese review from me today (sadly, I could have used those likes) but instead I wanted to update you all on a couple of this happening in relation to this account and myself!

First off, I am super excited to announce that I am orginizing what will hopefully be a new yearly tradition on my account: The AOTY Awards for 2019! Yes, it's exactly what you think it is: I've made up some catagories for people to vote in with this link ... read more

(Band Binge: Beach House Part Three of Eight)

Guys. It's clicked.

Oh thank god this was good. I was worried to death that I wouldn't like this album. After how high my hopes were for their last two albums, the letdown (aside from a few really good tracks) was devastating. I was fully expecting for this album to follow in the same vein and continue to give me pretty nicely produced sludge-pop...what I didn't expect was for this album to actually connect with me in any way.

I think I am ... read more

And here we see AOTY stans riot. Everyone's favorite shoegaze bitches are back with their version of a punk record.

You already know how this goes. It's Have a Nice Life! Creators of two fantastic shoegaze records that have been a STAPLE in nearly every AOTY list for 'best albums of all time'. We ALL know that Deathconciousness is a modern classic, and we ALL know how much The Unnatural World opened up Have A Nice Life to a more wider demographic, becoming accessible while still remaining ... read more

(Band Binge: Beach House Part Two of Eight)

...Am I missing something here?

Look, this album isn't bad. It's far from it actually. It's sweet, wholesome, delicate, the songwriting is on point and the production is dense and off the wall. And compared to their debut, there is definite improvement. But...goddamn I was just bored to tears. I had to chuck on Devo halfway through listening just to bring me back to life!

I think i'm just the wrong guy to be looking at this group in depth. Everyone ... read more

Be me. I'm enjoying myself a good sandwich. A turkey sandwich to be exact, with mayo and the crusts cut off. I'm having a good time, a good day, a good hour. It's calm, meditative and pleasing. I'm in my lungs in my couch, and am watching an episode of Tim and Eric on TV. Then all of a sudden...CRASH! The window of my lounge breaks.

'What the fuck was that?', I say to myself. I out down my half eaten sandwich and pause the TV (I have Tevo, it's fine) and investigate. Around the corner of the ... read more

Hello. I’m doing this challenge where I try to review the best albums of the decade that haven’t listened yet, can I get some recommendations for the best albums of 2010’s?
Nov 16, 2019
Yes, exactly. Why can't you take it seriously?

I would really love to hear your honest opinions and critiques on my new single, Crushed. This is the second song I have written, but you should be able to find the first one on my Bandlab profile if you want to, just know it isn't anything special.
This is the link to the new song.

Yo do you plan to review the new Avenade record? It seems up your alley and I'm really curious to see what you'd have to say about it.
Nov 11, 2019
Yo PIPE I just saw your msg, thanks so much dude. The project is done, but I have 5 major samples I have yet to clear before I can put it out. Looks like I’ll lose a bit of money to put my passion project out... but I don’t wanna compromise the quality in any way. As soon as the paperwork is done, I’ll announce the track list & release date :))
