Day 666: Death Race For Love by Juice WRLD

Suppose that's a fitting 666. I sat through this once.

Once.

I'm never sitting through that again. Shit just makes me feel gross inside, the softer songs are syrupy as fuck and the "bangers" also suck. I know the whole "incel" thing is a meme but this music sucks. Fuck Tinder.

Best Track: Fast

Day 668: Resonant Body by Octo Octa

Every release she drops I find myself enjoying even more. This is significantly different from the other releases of hers I’ve reviewed due to a heavier reliance on breakbeats but it keeps that deep, luscious atmosphere that soaks me in while also adding in a newfound energy.

This is good. Very good. Can’t believe I waited two months. She never fails me.

Best Track: Ecstatic Beat or Deep Connections

Day 669: Magdalene by FKA Twigz (Album Choice: bad facebook groups)

Okay this review is gonna suck more than my Life of Pablo review from nearly 4 years ago bc i need to sleep asap because I am dying. Anyways,

-Wholly disappointing first track, but it picks up after pretty fast.
-Good Future feature. I like Future.
-Mary Magdalene is the best track here, and not just because I like making jokes about her sometimes!
-Glitchy tracks like Sad Day and especially Fallen Alien fucking slap.
-The closing track, well, I mean I understand that they wanted to bring it back to minimalism, but I just can't click with it. Actually there are too many slow ballads here in general, pls make more glitch hop stick lady.

Overall? I'm DEFINITELY gonna have to revisit this one, because it honestly felt like a very middling release but I feel like even two listens for this one isn't enough. And once again, I know I must've said it a million times, but FUCK ACADEMIA AND FUCK ADD YO IT'S FUCKING 4:45 AM and I have class in 6 hours AGGGGGHH

Best Track: Mary Magdalene

Day 670: Hymn to Moisture by Rrose (Album Choice: housedog)

Congrats Bill, this is almost definitely the album I’ve listened to the most before jotting down my thoughts, partly because school and partly because I wanted to crack this more before saying anything.

I expected this to be some superweeb shit because of the artist name without ever listening to one of their songs, and I’m glad I’m wrong. This is mostly space, quite amelodic soundscapes with drums that sound like slow footwork to me. The first couple of times I listened to this I thought “these songs all sound the damn same!” but with more listens I found myself appreciating the different rhythms and grooves a lot more. Still, I only like two-thirds of this album and I can’t even say why.

I would say “need some relistens” but I’ve listened like 12 times.

Best Track: Horizon followed by the title track

Day 671: Pang by Caroline Polachek

Is this year going to ultimately be defined musically for me as "the year I listened to way too many sadgirl and synthgirl indie acts"? Maybe, maybe not, who gives a shit? This is partially the former but moreso the latter, which I am thankful for as I'm more likely to enjoy it.

Listened twice, it's pleasant, nothing special outside of a few standout tracks but almost never grating or bad. Doesn't have that special spark or character that made some of my other favorites this year like Angel Olsen stand out, but to be quite honest, if I'm not complaining during any point of it, it's probably not too bad! Or maybe 1000 gecs just lowered my standards massively.

Best Track: Door

Day 672: Our Pathetic Age by DJ Shadow (Album Choice: Deadlyx39)

ok boomer

I wanted to leave my review at that, but the fact that this is 90 minutes makes me not want to do that. Instead here are some bulletpoints.

-Is Juggernaut supposed to be boomer dubstep?
-Firestorm would be good in a movie soundtrack of some melodramatic sort.
-Weightless is pretty good
-oh my god this is actually a boomer meme brought to auditory life
-The last two instrumental tracks are pretty good too
-WOW this is two separate albums!

Yeah, this is hard to review because it's like two separate albums, and the first instrumental one mostly sucks, but the second one with guest rappers rules! I'll just go with a middling rating because coasting on your guests is lame. Boomer.

Best Track: Rain On Snow
Rating: 5.5/10 (if it ended at We Are Always Alone it'd be a low 3, and if it started at the one with Nas it'd be a low 8)

Day 673: The Origin Of My Depression by Uboa

This sounds so similar to at least 2 or 3 albums I've listened to this year or last that I can't quite put my finger on it, have I reviewed this already? Have I listened to this already? If I have I'll need to fix the numbers. This is okay. I prefer the non-screamy tracks over the screamy ones, but that just could be because of what I'm looking for right now. My brain is broken. This is not the origin of my depression.

Day 674: We All Shine by YNW Melly

A lot of these lyrics (or heck, even the album title) are actually kinda darkly humourous, particularly on the first track and No Holidays, when you consider the fiasco this dude was recently involved in. What the fuck was that? Was he sacrificing two of his bros for the sake of clout only for it to go horribly wrong due to forensic evidence? Or was he beefing with them and trying to get a clean getaway? Or is this all the powers that be trying to bring a man down?

Who knows and who cares, what matters is this album is fucking generic GARBAGE.

Day 675: House of Sugar by (Sandy) Alex G

The first track was actually incredibly dope. That's how I like my psychedelic indie whiteboi nonsense.

Then the rest of the album minus 2 or 3 other tracks is boring as shit. Some songs are pretty enough but snooooooze

Fucking music twitter

Day 676: No Home Record by Kim Gordon

I've been a fan of Sonic Youth since I was about 11. My cousin called me a douchebag for liking them and Beck at that age.

Either way, when this record slaps, it fucking slaps. A lot of it reminds me of early Guerilla Toss except with a less playful, spastic vibe, instead traded in for more industrial, sinister tones. Then you have the quieter tracks, and while some manage to create the headspace they very obviously are going for, a lot are just plain boring. Still, not a bad effort.

Day 677: Songs For You by Tinashe (Album Choice: David H)

I fucking hate theory and I hate PhD classes that I don't realize are so instead of Master's courses until halfway through the semester. God I need to transfer programs.

Oh right this is a thread about music reviews. Uhhhhh, this album is pretty good I guess? Not exactly my kind of thing, but it's freewheeling, unforced and goes by quick, with a lot of good stuff within here, though I did find myself bored in certain parts.

I wish I had a co-reviewer I hated like this was On Cinema.

Day 678: Trying To Find My Next Thrill by Cousin Stizz (Album Choice: Jeremy L.)

I'm seeing this guy live tomorrow, which is mad funny because of friend in-jokes. Hopefully it's a good show.

This album is... consistent. Some of the cuts are legit bangers, but overall it's hard to pick what sticks out here. I actually found myself impressed by some of the lyricism on display here though, can't lie, and the beats might be slightly repetitive but I found myself enjoying the vast majority of them without getting too bored, except in brief weaker moments.

oh shit am i becoming a townie? fuck nooooooooooo haha just kidding i aint white

Day 679: Inevitable Demise by Space Camp

This is one of the bands I saw a month ago at a halloween show in a classroom. Machine Girl was supposed to be the last act but they cancelled so these guys were, and they were by far the best act IMO.

This album isn’t from 2019 but if it was it’d be one of my favorites of the year. Reminds me a bit of Midori except they suck and this doesn’t. It’s definitely a lot more structured than the performance (apparently they’re actually a three piece? Only two showed up to Amherst) and just totally different in general but it’s succinct, varies between more brooding moments, straight aggression and just straight-up goofiness flawlessly, and in general I found myself loving every second.

This is a weird thing to listen to before Cousin Stizz.
