Day 1067: I Killed Your Dog by L'Rain

This is lush, gorgeous, tight, consistent, frequently engaging, never boring, just damn near fantastic. Don't have much else to say except that I can't pick a single favorite track. But this is really top-notch shit.

Best Track: Just listen to the whole damn thing

Day 1068: new Carbon n Based Life forms

You know, I was thinking about how one of the next times I do a review, before the end of the year, I want to include scores for the 2023 albums I've heard that I didn't even bother to write anything for when I listened to them.

Given the sad state of these reviews now, what's the fuckin difference?

Day 1069: No Scavenging by Artifact Memory

Starting off 2024 with a 2024 album review! At least, that's what I wanted to do, but I can't write anything about this thing other than the fact that it is indeed is a "sound collage" album and the fact that it did nothing for me, except occasionally make me wonder if this was an attempt to be a meme.

That being said, here comes my ratings of 2023 albums for which I didn't bother to write even this much for. Most of these I listened to multiple times, but not all of them. A lot of these I listened to forever ago, forgot what they sounded like, and relistened again within the past couple of months. Others I wrote down a score a while ago and haven't heard since before this fall. Whatever. I also completely randomized this order so nobody would be able to guess the order I listened to these in.

s*x m*ney dr*gs by Lucki: 4.5/10

Day 1070: Wall of Eyes by not-Radiohead

I remember back in November 2022 these guys played one of the few venues in NYC that I have yet to go to, same one where friends of mine saw Dethklok and BABYMETAL, and I wanted to go but all the tickets on resale were over $100 which I refused to pay so I saw The Band Formerly Known As Viet Cong instead for like $20. Then in July they played a bigger venue and sales were so bad that they gave away like hundreds of tickets for free, so I snagged a pair, then realized I couldn't make it as I already had obligations to take my buddy to a punk show then to see CFCF and Cut Copy play DJ sets right after, so I ended up re-giving those away. So I've still never seen these guys play. Or Radiohead for that matter. Oh well.

Anyways, this is easily my favorite project from ol' droopy eyes and the one other Radiohead member involved since In Rainbows. Reception seems to be pretty split on whether this is an improvement or a downgrade from their 2022 debut but I think the two albums are too different to really compare. But dang, the emotional content here hit me hard, a feeling that is only aided by how theatrical and crescendo-heavy every single song here is. Great start to major/mainstream releases for the year.

Best Track: balls

Day 1071: Girl With No Face by Allie X

At this point, I basically only post here when there's an album I hope to get second opinions on from one of the 3 people that still read this. This has overtaken not-Radiohead for the current #1 album of the year on RYM but I know for a fact that it's not gonna last long on the throne. This is 100% not the type of music that internet nerds will admit to enjoying more than sadboi indie like Wall of Eyes, but it's something I personally enjoy more in this particular case. Lots of fun, no bad tracks, and the perfect length at just shy of 45 minutes. I don't have any complaints!

Eventually I'll dump my ratings for albums I've listened to since January that I can't be assed to write at least 2 sentences for, even though nobody cares.

Best Track: Off With Her Tits (there's several other competitors but I'm picking this one solely so I can write that phrase here)

Day 1073: Diamond Jubilee by Cindy Lee

We are SO BACK, BABY!

...yeah probably not, but anyways these guys got an INSANE amount of hype for this album and for a while it was #1 of the year on RateYourMusic charts. My friends had tickets to see them live (before they cancelled the tour for mental health reasons or something) but shit sold out immediately and resale was well over $100.

This is a pretty good album, but I think part of everyone's reason for admiring it so much is what makes it hard to admire for me. That being the length of over 2 fucking hours.

And we end this little review with no real conclusion. Hell yeah, BACK!

Best Track: I Have A 12 Inch Cock
