@@@ Major Lazer: Cold Water (Mad Decent, 2016). This tune off the Apple Music front page features little panty quaker Justin Bieber. I love the Beebs and I dug the tune until the cheesedozer synth entered into the faux dancehall flow. I guess white people have discovered dancehall now they can ruin that well. Am I the only out there that would pay $5 to see the Beebs take a savage beating??? This is a great tune to listen to on the phone on the escalator up the second floor blue jeans shop right next to the scented candle joint. Imma have to stop so they get their $0.002. Get yer hankies out, incoming meaningful lyrics alert!
@@@ Wilco: Schmilco (Anti-, 2016). Wilco has a new thunderbiscuit due to drop in September and you can peep a couple tracks on the Apple Music. Regular readers know of my love of the Wilco so let’s peep! My first thought is that this is a mash of old school soft rock and intimate indie vibes. I like the production, it sounds pretty great. And the bass sound is pretty hype. The tune slowly expands with swelling organ, a variety of guitar parts and some background vocals. The second song is a murky mid tempo slack rocker with strong Pavement flavorings. This is some pretty restrained Tweedy action here. Imma focusing on the bass/drum sound that’s the best meat on this bone.
@@@ Blut Aus Nord: Codex Obscura Nomina (Eltrin, 2015). Some off center metal off this week’s All Music notable release email. Some undercover swinging in this first tune with odd and not completely annihilated guitar sounds and more of a contemplative caveman working the mic. This more of a gloomy Marilyn Manson typa glam sound with the guitars sounding a bit like horns and washed out. Hey, there’s another dude that could use a savage beating. Fucking Marilyn Manson! Your makeup is runnin’ Marilyn, fix your mascara you little punk ass motherfucker. Oh, this record it’s more odd than heavy and I like the heavy. As always, peep for yourself.
