Day 799: Saint Cloud by Waxahatchee

Is that a Venture Bros reference? The boomers at Pitchfork called this the second best album of the year, after that Fiona Apple album that I liked just fine but wouldn't call outstanding at this point or anything.

This is nowhere near as good as that album. I truly don't understand how this could be the second best album of the year. It's, like, fine...

Best Track: The Eye

Day 801: Meet The Woo 2 by Pop Smoke (Album Choice: Hazel H.)

This is about half as long as that last one I released which is I guess why it's a mixtape and not an album. Yet for a mixtape, this feels way less cobbled together and more cohesive. And I think the songs are better.

Best Track: Dior

beep boop big unranked year end chart behind the link


you've reviewed a bunch of these already, but would love to see your takes on a few of them, mostly meitei, gallery s, zora jones, jean dawson, tim reaper and jockstrap.

as for things you've already reviewed,

re: some of the more ~zoomer~ adjacent things you've reviewed this year: zoomer music peaked this year with this, pulling from the soundcloud glitchcore scene and dogshow records stuff that has blown up in the 1000 gecs wake. some features dont land super hard but the super collaborative online spirit is here in full force. (and while u reviewed the food house record idk if you heard thos moser, which blows everything on that project out of the water)

re: bladee: 333 is boring but i really enjoy exeter, maybe you'd like that one more?

re: jessie ware: what's your pleasure is my definite AOTY, was glad to see u give it a 9! was huge on every single during this album rollout and when the rest of the album was same quality it was a lock. AOTY and maybe my favorite full length since CRJ's Emotion in 2015.

re: ichiko aoba: i dont love it as much as 2018s qp or 2013s 0 but i see why this blew up so hard on rym. ichiko aoba already had a really decent following on there (as far as japanese language artists go) and when they redid their sorting algorithm on there earlier this year 0 shot up to first place of 2013 bringing in a lot of new fans. that combined with this being her lushest production to date and day 1 buzz from fans giving it a high chart debut definitely helped. its definitely good but a confluence of factors i think led to its strong chart performance. i still really love it myself, but hope it encourages other ppl to check out her earlier work.

re: new avalanches: this was kind of a disappointment for me but im glad others are really enjoying it. wildflower is an all time favorite and since i left you isnt far behind. there are some major hits (born to die has been on loop since the album dropped) but little with it has stuck with me after 4 listens and the features are wiiiiiildly inconsistent for me. we'll see what i think in like a year though, havent had a ton of time to spend with this one yet.

Day 803: Charmed by DJ Sabrina the Teenage DJ

I was really really enjoying this at first, felt like a nice mix of future funk, house music and just general nostalgia aesthetic, then by the halfway point I was like "why is this still going on and on and on?"

Day 804: Bob's Son: R​.​A​.​P. Ferreira in the Garden Level Cafe of the Scallops Hotel by R.A.P. Ferreira

I've gotta be honest guys, although I've given him fair ratings I've always thought this guy was a bit overrated.

This, however, is HEAT. I think a shorter runtime works wonders for this guy's style when it comes to cohesive projects, as I loved every second of this and fell immediately into it's atmosphere and just, like, world, and when it was over I felt like I wanted MORE.

Also I'm glad he's mostly sticking to his current pseudonym and not releasing more stuff under the name Milo because I'm no longer thinking of Yiannopolopodopoponopolis.

Day 805: Whole Lotta Red by Playboi Carti (Album Choice: choof)

In the past my biggest complaint about this guy was that he basically just existed on the beat. It feels like he took heed of similar complaints and instead decided to go full Soundcloud and it SUCKS. Choof I was hoping you were wrong...

Day 806: ROVO by ROVO (Album Choice: aboomer)

This is really dense stuff. Is it jazz? Is it prog rock? Is this a jam band?

Either way, I like it but it's perhaps a bit too wanky feeling for me to really truly fall in love with any of this. Maybe if I was tripping I'd like it a lot more. This reminds me quite a bit of The Comet Is Coming but that release I reviewed was quite a bit tighter.

This is the second thing I've reviewed this year that uses Weird Fishes/Arpeggi as a basis for a track. I saw this on the chart and thought it was the most likely I'd enjoy. And I was right.

What are you most looking forward to this year? I know that Architects are coming out with a new album in a month or so, but I was wondering what you might be looking forward to.

Day 808: Big Science by Laurie Anderson

Let's start the year off by listening to some "canon classics" that I never bothered getting around to. I hear this one get called "groundbreaking" a ton.

Aaaaaaand I only like two songs, Born, Never Asked and
O Superman (For Massenet). The rest just doesn't do it atmospherically for me. It's definitely groundbreaking, but simultaneously sounds more dated than a lot of the electronic stuff that came before this (like I will 100% still jam out to some Silver Apples).

Alright 2021 here we come!

Day 809: Drunk Tank PInk by Shame

First 2021 album I'm reviewing in 2021 is the highest rated album on the 2021 RYM charts as of today. And this entire album slaps, there was not a single second I didn't absolutely adore. After finding almost no rock albums I liked last year, it's nice to have a art punk shredder be my first love of the year.

Welp that's all I'm writing. Go to bed.

Day 810: I've Seen All I Need To See by The Body

Here's another band where my senior year roommate Cooper loved them and I was entirely unfamiliar but I THOUGHT I was familiar because of their similarity in name to Show Me The Body.

This sounds nothing like that band, but is as face-shredding, soul-disintegrating and just plain ROCKING in a completely different way. I can see complaints from people because these songs all kinda sound the same, but they sound the same in a great way, just pure ugliness, aggression and sludge, and as a result of it being kinda short and the songs not being too long it doesn't overstay its welcome. This reminds me a lot of an album Cooper showed me from The Goslings but this is a completely different genre and style, and I think I like this better.

Maybe 2021 is the year I find a fuckton of heavy shit that I like instead of hip-hop or electronic stuff. Who knows? It's still early.

Best Track: They Are Coming

Day 811: Isles by Bicep

Man I can't tell if everything thus far I've reviewed from 2021 (including Bob's Son even though I put it in my top of 2020) is a slapper because

A. During COVID when they couldn't tour, musicians honed their craft more and strived for perfectionism to wow people at home
B. COVID is making me love all music more because of how much I miss concerts
C. I've just been getting high more often and more intensely recently and thus I enjoy music more.

Anyways, another great album. This didn't wow me as much as any other 2021 album I've reviewed, but it's consistently great and groovy and a ton of fun while also being laidback. Go check it!

Best Track: Rever (feat. Julia Kent)

Day 812: Unbothered by Lil Skies

Well first album of 2021 I don't enjoy whatsoever. That's all I CAN say about this album, it's so bland and unremarkable while not even being enjoyable on a "brain turned off" sort of mindset and there is nothing else I can think to write.
