Day 542: Thank You by Black Dresses

The Machine Girl Problem
/T͟Hē məˈSHēn ɡərl ˈpräbləm/
The phenomenon of releasing an album and having half be badass but half cringe shit

And unlike Machine Girl, I can't point to a style that they excel or falter at. Although I, as expected, prefer the harder hitting tracks, some of the pop songs (like carnival-esque closer Baby Steps) are great. And there are bad songs of both types.

Worth a listen, I'll give em that. Also way, way better than Sleigh Bells.

Day 543: Czarface Meets Ghostface by... oh come the fuck on yo

This is better than every Wu-Tang album that isn't the debut. Maybe not Wu-Tang Forever either but I haven't listened to that one in years. I hope everyone who reads this realizes exactly how difficult of a task that is.

It's succinct (yay for a lack of terrible skits), and it's consistent. The beats are simple, and I'm not complaining. Only qualm I have is some of these lyrics are actually REALLY bad to the point of almost being comedic, predominantly some of Esoteric's one-liners.

Almost definitely not gonna make my year-end list, but it's not bad at all!

Day 545: Remind Me Tomorrow by Sharon Von Etten

This is gonna be the year of listening to artists I saw live years ago but never bothered listening to! She was, in fact, the opening act at the first show (they called it a "festival") I ever went to without family. I was 17, so many missed opportunities... fuck social anxiety.

Anyways, her act was good, even great, but for some reason I stupidly assumed I wouldn't like her recorded music. Maybe I had an internal bias against female artists at that time, or maybe some weird rockist shit. Or maybe it's because I was too mesmerized by Tame Impala and Beck. Regarding the latter, haters fuck off and commit seppuku. Regarding the former, hate as you please, I think they aight. Anyways, listening now is proving my preconceptions wrong like the useless fucking moron I am.

This is wonderfully consistent, yet there's just enough eclecticism to prevent one from getting bored, even an unmedicated fuck-up like myself! You have bombastic, almost stadium-ready rockers like Hands and Seventeen, fuzzy swing pop with You Shadow, psychedelia with Jupiter 14 and dancy album closer Stay, and much, much more! This sounds like an advertisement I suck at writing like I suck at life and everything else.

I'm mad at myself for waiting 4 years to listen to this artist. The only complaint I have with this album is the opener is a little boring. Other than that, unless my tastes shift or a lot of crazy shit comes out, this is a strong contender for my top 20 for the year. I am a shifty guy though, I haven't gotten laid in months, I've slept like 35 hours total over the past week and it's worsening my depression. And I have tests to take.

Fuckin college.

Day 546: It Won't Be Like This All The Time by The Twilight Sad

This is the first shoegaze band I actually ever listened to thanks to my period of music discovery when the Nintendo DSi was still popular leading me to Sonic Youth, whom these guys ripped a cover from.

I also almost saw these guys live when they opened for The Cure, but didn't wanna shell out the money.

These guys sound exactly how I remember them sounding in 2010.

To add to that, let's call this "the year I listen to albums I listened to years ago, didn't think it deserved a review, forgot to rate it and welp here we are". This guy I remember I first listened to back in 2013! What a time distance. I didn't think it deserved a review back then, but these are less reviews nowadays and more just me shitting out a couple of opinions with occasionally some bad jokes or anecdotes and whatnot. In fact because my reviews have deteriorated so much this paragraph being this long makes it a better recent one! I keep doing it as a ratings/first impressions log I suppose. Anyways, I remember enjoying this album but less than Up In Flames.

There's something awfully jam bandy about the longer tracks here, and a bunch of the shorter tracks are corny. A few cuts like the opener are pretty good, most aren't.

I enjoyed this less than I remembered.

Day 550: Tipped in Hugs / Dog Says Goodbye by Avey Tare

Technically, this is a single, but both of the songs are long as fuck and I've reviewed 2 song EPs of a similar length before. And besides, do you really care if I only review albums and EPs or whatever? IDK man I'm still tired as fuck I miss the first 2 years of college when academics were easy.

Tipped In Hugs is great, and I came into this expecting some annoying splatter-noodliness but got sweet psych folk pop instead. Dog Says Goodbye isn't really my cup of tea, but it's not annoying so yay! Both of these songs could really be trimmed down to, like, two-thirds.

I guess this is why I don't review singles.

Day 552: Plastic Anniversary by Matmos

Based on the descriptors and the genres, I thought I'd enjoy this more than I did, but after listening to this three times I'm honestly quite disappointed. There are more than a few good songs here, mostly the more sinister-sounding ones and the rare more melodic ones, but the majority of this album just feels way too spare and empty, and some of the samples are annoying to the point of sounding like stock sound effects... unless those are stock sound effects. (I checked after writing the rest of this bullcrap, those are indeed real instruments being chopped up)

My disappointment is likely largely my fault for expecting something that the album definitely wasn't going for, but even other albums I've listened to that were going for a similar vibe (like the footwork albums I reviewed in 2017) weren't this... grating oftentimes. Even at a relatively short 40 minutes, this is a bit of a slog. I might just turn this into an EP for myself and that personal selection would go up a couple points. Or maybe I'd give it more points if I was, like, fucked up beyond words at a music festival. The best thing about this album is that, in spite of me not really enjoying it, I'm curious to check out the other Matmos albums because I'm assuming they'd sound completely different. Hope I'm not setting myself up for disappointment again!

Day 553: Abiogenesis by KK Null

I meant to listen to this like, 3 months ago but just got around to it thanks to ADD making me cram my fucking college bullshit. Anyways, I quite liked this one, although I'm not sure how this is "harsh noise". It definitely gets its atmosphere across, but I actually wish it was MORE consistently harsh, and maybe have a slight bit more... variety of sounds? That's not the right word but fuck this I'm not looking for the right word anyways I got work to do.

Didn't enjoy this as much as Music For Bondage Performance but it's still good.

Day 554: ARIZONA Baby by Kevin Abstract

I like this more than Iridescence, maybe because it's concise and focused. I always HATED the pitch shifting aspect of BROCKHAMPTON's music, but it's used sparingly here and never feels too out of place. The backing tracks this time around also feel more thoughtful than most tracks off all of their albums, with a lot more morphing and shifting in every track here, even the super short intro track.

This made me slightly more excited for their next release.

Best Track: Joy Ride
