Day 900: World Famous Tour by Wavedash

Checking out the people who are opening for Anamanaguchi when I see them this Sunday besides CFCF (who is the artist I'm most hyped for by far). I expected this album to suck, and for a good chunk of it, it did. But some of the tracks, particularly the opener and a good chunk of the back half, were surprisingly quite good! The rest is corny bullshit that'll definitely be fun to dance to but makes for lame headphone work listening.

Best Track: Void; Reciprocate, Love

Day 901: Colors II by Between The Buried and Me (Album Choice: Deadlyx39)

I saw Injury Reserve last night and it was fucking INSANE and gave me a newfound appreciation for their latest album when I listened to it again last night, gonna bump that to an 8. Also I adored Slauson Malone's performance, but it was ridiculously avant-garde and the crowd blatantly hated it, which made my inner contrarian enjoy it even more.

Also, I've listened to this album 3 times over the past week and I enjoyed it but it really is just way too long. But I rarely like wanky progressive stuff so the fact that I enjoyed it is already impressive. Is it as good as Colors One? No. But it's still pretty good.

Day 902: Mercurial Bay by Magdalena Bay

I listened to this 3 times and loved it every time. I also saw these guys live yesterday and they put on a better show than George Clanton.

Best Track: the first real song

Day 903: Escape Room by Rural Internet

I didn't like it. I want to find more hyperpop that I like so the kids don't call me a boomer but most of it is not good.

Best Track: bleh

Day 904: Talk Memory by BADBADNOTGOOD

I'm trying to see these guys live next year, and I haven't listened to them in YEARS. Working from memory, this is a hell of a lot more lush and orchestrated than their earlier stuff. I like it!

Best Track: Love Proceeding

Parannoul's To See the Next Part of the Dream has been all the rave lately, and there's a split between him, Asian Glow and sonhos tomam conta (Downfall of the Neon Youth) that you might be interested in as well.

My brain is sad and broken and this collection of loops hits my brain hard.

When will life be enjoyable again?

Day 905: 333 by Tinashe (Album Choice: my buddy David)

3 3s in a row! What's the jackpot?

I know for a fact David that you only recommended this one because you're thirsty as fuck for her, but this album wasn't bad. It wasn't amazing either. A perfectly pleasant but uninspiring listen throughout, with the exception of one song that bordered on Drum and Bass.

Best Track: Shy Guy

Day 906: Weight Of The World by Maxo Kream

Compared to Punken this was rather dry. Not a lot of hip-hop or hip-hop adjacent shit I've been digging this year.

Best Track: the one with A$AP Rocky

This was a very overlooked 2020 release but nonetheless it warrants listening to: False Noise - Floral Strobe

Day 907: Volcanic Bird Enemy and the Voiced Concern by Lil Ugly Mane

I saw this guy live and it was a great time. This album would be a great time if he cut in in about half.

Best Track: I can't be assed to pick a favorite out of 1194 tracks

Day 908: LP! by JPEGMAFIA

This is like an in-between of the styles of Veteran and the last album he dropped. This is better than Cornballs but not better than Veteran. I'm writing this review from work because I listened to this album 3 times during work. You know damn well whether or not you're gonna listen to this, and you know damn well that my opinion isn't a guarantee of whether or not you'll like this.

I wonder if I made the right decision skipping this live show to see Skrillex and Wax Motif instead.

Best Track: KISSY, FACE EMOJI! (I'm glad it wasn't REBOUND! because that would hurt me to say)

Wow this is the most boring project of his I've heard yet. I'd still see him live though.

Hey, I actually quite like this album. And it's hyperpop. I'm not a boomer!

...I think?

Day 911: Sensational by Erika de Casier

This is a pretty good album, pleasant throughout, short enough to rarely get boring to me and good performance throughout. It's lacking a certain oomph though that stops it from being great to me and I don't know why. Stylistically, this is NOTHING like Lianne La Havas but that's the closest vibe I can think of that I actually absolutely adored. Comparisons are stupid.

Best Track: Someone to Chill With

Day 912: Civilisation by Kero Kero Bonito (Album Choice: my old roommate)

I never liked this band, but the singer's guest appearance on the latest CFCF album was absolutely divine. Before listening to this I listened to the sequel EP, which had two decent tracks and a wild closer. This album is pretty good! I'm surprised how much I like it, it feels like a tribute to 16-bit gaming in a way.

So for fun I decided to go back and try out Bonito Generation again and holy fuck this is still terrible. Oh well, still hoping they're a lot of fun live.

Best Track: The River
