Day 646: There Existed An Addiction To Blood by clipping. (Album Choice: my roommate)

Another band that I always associated with memes and have barely listened to outside of a few popular songs on YouTube many years ago.

Why these guys are frequently compared to Death Grips is not apparent to me. Well, no, I get why they're compared considering their more esoteric beat choices, but the delivery and tone of the whole thing is worlds away from MC Ride's shoutiness. This is more in line with the other artist these two get compared to (just guess who that is) but this is definitely more frequently aggressive than his work. This album wasn't bad! The subject matter of most of the songs didn't do all too much for me, but the beats and flow on most of it kept me engaged, and I can appreciate their experimental approach while maintaining a cohesive flow to this thing. I suppose I should check out some of their other work.

Ending with an 18 minute field recording of a burning piano was dumb tho.

Best Track: La Mala Ordina

Day 647: 1000 gecs by 100 gecs

It's like if the dudes from BrokenCYDE decided to record an album on MDMA then release it only in a sped-up form.
It's like MySpace culture came back with a vengeance, but this time the self-harm is inflicted on the ears.
It's like a group of white kids decided they wanted to take nightcore versions of trap songs then add more trap and more nightcore to it.
It's like the people behind those stupid Happy Bunny stickers that were popular in 2003 decided to release an album sung by Happy Bunny but they could only afford bootleg AutoTune, ImmediatePitchShift.
It's like a hipster wanted to make something akin to "deconstructed emo nightcore" except nobody gives a fuck about emo nightcore and also he had never used GarageBand before.
It's like if Vocaloid was cringy in a different way that was Ameri-centric instead.
Fuck you PMC.

Day 648: The Plugs I Met by Benny The Butcher

This was #2 for best EPs of 2019, and most of the rest of the chart was metal that I didn't want to listen to. I guess I'm biased to hip-hop EPs because I honestly bumped this shit hard, to the point where it fucked up my last half-hour of studies! The two standout features are obvious (Black Thought,Pusha T) but every song here smacks. Yeah, EPs are better than 70 minute albums for sure. Quality control motherfuckers. Fuck you Eminem.

If I don't get help for my broken brain soon I'm gonna lose college. I hate my life. I need to fucking play more dance games and get healthy exercise where is my impulse. And I need therapy. Help me plz college sucks.

Day 649: All Mirrors by Angel Olsen

Okay PMC you're not really forgiven for that atrocity yesterday but I can't lie, this is great stuff. Once again, front-loaded, but not a bad song in the bunch.

Best Track: The Title Track and it's actually called All Mirrors but I'm bolding this because I want to

Day 650: LφVE & EVφL by Boris

I love it when the title tracks are the worst tracks except goddamnit the first track is the best one here. I found LφVE to be a chore and EVφL to be annoying, but the rest is usual Boris. Lone exception is the first track which is almost dream pop. Anyways, this is average.

Best Track: Away From You

Day 651: Atonement by Killswitch Engage (Album Choice: Deadlyx39)

Last one was surprisingly decent. This one just half bored me, half gave me a headache. Not revisiting. Sorry.

Day 652: Zdenka 2080 by Salami Rose Joe Louis

I saw her open for Flying Lotus. Her act was great. FlyLo was better. On the other hand, this is better than the newest album of his, but just barely. It's, overall, pretty passable and forgettable, but with that in mind nothing here is offensively bad and it goes quick.

Best Track: Love The Sun but it really is quite repetitive

Day 653: Shattered Dimensions by The Flying Luttenbachers

I'm pretty sure I heard something this band made when I was, like, 14 and didn't care for it. The first song here kicks ass. The rest is still pretty good, but this is generally more freeform than I like my noise rock stuff. They're really good at making crushing tones work in alternation with free jazzy bullshit though.

Day 658: Quantum Pulsation by KK Null

Continuing the trend of "let's review artists that I've reviewed previously and see if my tastes have changed significantly" let's review an artist whom I last reviewed in the distant past of April 2019.

Compared to Abiogenesis, which I liked a little bit more upon repeated listens (and would probably give it an 8 today), this is even less consistently harsh. The only part of this album I'm not very fond of is towards the end of the first track (was he trying to go for some kinda forest/jungle atmosphere? I dunno but it annoyed me) and the rest is pretty good, but overall it just isn't as interesting, engaging or intense as the last one I listened to... wait this came out 2 days after Abiogenesis?

Not bad, if you know what you're looking for here, you'll probably find it. But once again, I just wish things were even more abrasive.

Best Track: The second one

Day 659: Sizzling EP by Daphni

Despite the pseudonym and the fact that this is a completely different style that I probably like just as much as folktronica, this is exactly as boring as the last Caribou album I reviewed!

Best Track: If

I mean... there's not much else to explain really. That's pretty much exactly right. For me, that type of music hits me hard in the feels. Favorites from that album are Good Things Fall Apart and In Your Arms. Plus, I'm not sure if you've ever been to a show with that type of music but it only makes it better imo.

I used to go to raves as a teen, I've been to an Armin Only, and I've been to EDC at least three times
a live setting amplifies any style of music, not just epic and atmospheric vocal edm
I didn't hear any artistic evolution from Awake honestly
