Well, I finally know what to say. It took me a while, but I think I have a good enough grasp on what this monster is to talk about it.

I want to preface this with the notion that I have never in my life had depression or felt any kind of extreme negativity. Yes, I've felt stressed and frustrated and existential and stuff before, pretty much everyone has, but I've never struggled to keep myself together as a result of any of that, and I'm extremely grateful for it. It does, however, introduce ... read more

Firstly, you spelled alter wrong, dumbass.

Secondly, what we have here is some bare bones, raw and simplistic indie rock packed into a tight 20-something minutes and it works pretty dang well.

Favourite tracks: nothing else | lonely | brooklyn
Least favourite track: pier pressure

Once again out lord and saviour Avenade has brought us another two songs from his upcoming as-yet-unnamed sophomore album, and they're damn incredible.

THE FALL OUT BOY BINGE (7/7)

I should have stopped. I already had all the proof I needed to back up my claim that Fall Out Boy is trash. I should have stopped listening and moved on. But noooo, I had to go and listen to MANIA, didn't I? I had to complete the binge, because what if I ended up liking it? That happened with Coldplay, why wouldn't it happen here? You shouldn't trust other people's opinions, and you can't definitively say if Fall Out Boy is trash or not without completing their ... read more

Album covers often get a lot of attention, sometimes more than the music itself but there's one aspect to albums that is very often overlooked: the title. The title often sets the mood and energy of the album, or is memorable enough to stick with you, but seldom gets credit for doing so. Anyways, this leads into a question I have (for a list): what's your favourite album title of all time?

if you had to choose a live performance of a song that's better than the original studio recording, what would it be? it can either be something youve experienced yourself or something from an official live album (cough cough its for a list)
