Ka Baird - Respires


2019 is turning out to be quite the year for music imo.

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

Best Track: Walk Away

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.

Best Track: Murdered Out

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.

Best Track: Life's Too Short

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

Best Track: Toast 2 That

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.

Best Track: Space Camp Fun Heats Up

Day 683: Hyperspace by Beck

Dude is one of the very first artists I got into but I didn't even bother with Colors last year because I haven't dug any of his albums since Midnite Vultures. If this is ANY better than Colors I made the right decision. Cool opening, bland as fuck after.

Best Track: The opening

Day 684: Main Pop Girl 2019 by Default Genders

I saw someone who put 1000 gecs as their top album put this as second and morbid curiosity got the better of me. Thank god it did, this is actually pretty good and nothing like that utter garbage. It isn't anything particularly mindblowing but it's warm and I found it pleasant enough to download.

Best Track: too lazy to pick one

Day 685: Orchestre Univers by Labelle

This sounds like a movie soundtrack. Reviewing a live album instead of a studio one makes me question whether the sound effects present are from background movies or if they're intended to be part of the composition. I hope it's not the latter.

Best Track: uhhh

It's really a shame that mellow gold was so fucking good and every beck release from there has just kept becoming more derivative and insipid. I think the only other bit of refreshment in his discography was The Information, but it's got nothing on his first two.

Day 686: The NYC Dance Project by MoMA Ready

RIP Juice WRLD, I'm gonna miss the memes and nobody deserves to die so young, especially sad in light of the fact that his seizure was probably caused by him trying to go clean for his girlfriend.

This album is way better than his album. A keeper for sure. dundundundun

Day 687: XYZ by Gloo

This was so underwhelming that I went back and listened to Neo Wax Bloom to see if I liked it as much as I did back in 2017. I don't, but it's still miles ahead of this. There's some good cuts on here but for what is essentially 8 tracks, I shouldn't be bored for half of it.

Day 688: And Now by Psychedelic Porn Crumpets (Album Choice: not MarioNintendo)

In turns bombastic fun and annoying cheese. Hopping into an artist with their latest release isn't always a good idea, but I have a feeling these dudes' albums all sound very similar. They're good at keeping things heavy and energizing while maintaining a heady atmosphere, and the whole thing is over quite quick.

Best Track: Hymn For A Droid

I dunno what you think my taste is, this is decent I suppose. Corny in places, enjoyable in others, COMPLETE waste of a JPEGMAFIA feature. I'd like this more if I was still in high school, but it isn't bad.

Best Track: Shadowrun
