Day 813: Sound Ancestors by Madlib

RIP MF DOOM, is this album as personally important to my cracker ass as Madvillainy? Absolutely not. Is this album as good? Absolutely not. Is this album any good? Eh, it's decent, but nothing all too "wow" although it's smooth and pleasant.

Best Track: One for Quartabę / Right Now

Day 815: Forever In Your Heart by Black Dresses

I forget if I reviewed one or two things by these guys forever ago. This stuff sounds the same as it did before, except now it's a longer album. Also, maybe I'm getting old but I don't remember being as annoyed by this music as I am now. Whatever.

Day 816: Collapsed in Sunbeams by Arlo Parks

HOOOOOOLY shit I'm getting old, this person was born this millennium? I mean, that's not exactly rare these days, but any time I see it, I just feel old as fuck. Maybe this is a heavily extended whiplash from when you go from listening to nothing but boomer music in your preteen and early teen years (up until 14 or so, and yes 90s music and Daft Punk are boomer now according to the interwebs) then going the complete opposite way and listening predominantly to newer music in your early 20s. Instead of dead or almost dead people, I have music from people who are probably gonna die after me, especially the way I tend to live life.

Okay anyways, this album, when I first found it? It was higher ranked on the year charts, and you know I'm too lazy to find music more ways more than a few times a year or something. It's sank since, but I dunno if that's indicative of the quality or simply backlash. After all, the first ranked album for like the first two weeks of the year was half plagiarized and half pedophile.

I like this a ton, this is probably better than half of the things ranked above it at the moment. It varies between smooth and subdued or... still smooth and subdued but really it's not all that same-y. Almost every track here is good, the lyrics are okay if not particularly memorable (I hear this girl is a poet?) and the production is just what I need. Good album.

Man I can't wait til I get this Master's degree so I can get an actual job.

Day 817: Working With God by Melvins

I updated the thread title again. Will I ever do that retrospective thing I promised like almost 2 years ago now? I SWEAR I WILL I just don't... have time. Okay onto the music.

These guys are a REAL throwback to me now, I still enjoy some of their classics, especially their earliest shit, from time to time but I don't listen to it often. There's a whole lotta sludge out there and I have to be in a specific mood for a specific band. Also, didn't Buzzo get cancelled for appearing on the podcast of the anti-homophobia buttplug squeeze Nazi Vice founder guy? I'm not sure if it took or if people just forgot and stopped caring as is the norm for most people attacked by the cancel culture boogeyman. Either way, I'm listening to this for free on Bandcamp, he's not getting my money, who cares?

Aaaaand I wouldn't have paid for this either way. I see at the bottom of the page that they're boasting this is the 1983 lineup, which coincides with some of my all time favorites from this band, but this just feels... uninspired? These guys were never someone I came to for emotional honesty, but when you open a sludge album with a Beach Boys "cover" you start to wonder if things are just too stupid. A lot of this album is just really, really fucking stupid, and that was clearly the goal. What's lame is that there are some hard hitters in here, but they're a mere handful in a sea of stupid shit and boring shit.

Now squeeze a buttplug out your ass, Buzzo. Prove your libertarian ass isn't homophobic.

Day 818: For the First Time by Black Country, New Road

Welp, this is currently #1 for the year on that website. You know it. Thankfully the year is still early because that's unlikely to remain.

Double thankfully because this shit bores me to tears. I can respect the craft while still saying this does not appeal to me at ALL.

Day 819: Thru And Thru by Gang Gang Dance (Album Choice: housekeeper)

I used to always mix these guys up with Dance Gavin Dance which drove me away from them, even though they sound nothing alike. This album? I like the danciest parts, and I applaud their experimentation and eclecticism, but big chunks of this album just get grating to me, particularly whenever the vocals shine too bright. In spite of that, I'd say this is a fine, pleasant listen as background noise even with some moments being less than desirable.

Okay back to the homework.

Day 820: Alone in the Meantime by The Outside Agency (Album Choice: chob)

Well, this is a short one. Just one 15 minute piece. I like it a lot, I like the way it builds up, gets really aggressive, then fades out into nothing. It makes me miss raves.

I have nothing more useful to say.

Day 821: Carnage by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis

I don't know who the second guy is. I like The Birthday Party on occasion but I've never been all that into anything I've heard from Nick Cave solo.

And this basically continues the trend. It's pleasant and pretty chamber music, doesn't really evoke any sort of strong feeling in me. Whatever. Give me noise.

YouTube recommended this to me and it got compared to Boards of Canada a bunch. This is nowhere near as good as them. The first track is fantastic, the rest ranges from good to boring.

Day 823: As The Love Continues by Mogwai

I'm actually surprised. Everything I've heard from this band (not much, but a good chunk of their most acclaimed works) bores me to tears but this was actually quite a pleasant listen. It still has a bit of a problem of lacking a real originality as far as I can tell but I guess I like the textures they used here more? I dunno, this was pretty damn good though.

Best Track: All of them are about equal except the one where the dude sang, that one sucked

Day 824: Smiling With No Teeth by Genesis Owusu

Another case of "I have no idea but this is currently highly ranked for the RYM year chart", the first song and a couple of other cuts sound almost EXACTLY like Death Grips, but compared to them this album is far more eclectic.

Okay that's all I'm gonna write tbh I'm bored and my master's projects are stressing me the fuck out. This is a good album and I think it'll hold up with multiple listens if not get even better, although only time will tell. God why am I so basic?

Day 825: The new Godspeed You! Black Emperor by Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Fuck that album title. This sounds... like Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Like, if you know what they sound like, it sounds just like them. HOWEVER, this is far more consistent and enjoyable than anything they've done since Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven, probably one of their best works yet overall, with great emotional variance and orgasmic crescendos.

Okay I'm done reviewing this, I don't need to review this you knew damn well whether or not you were gonna check this out and whether or not you were gonna enjoy this. Let the melon review it.
