m lockwood porter’s “27”


happy saturday, peoples! few weeks ago this here little stain on the internet turned 9, with zero fanfare, but thats ok. still, in internet time thats a pretty long time. ive written a lot of words over those 9 years, pretty much all by my lonesome, minus maybe 50 out of the 3104 that have been published. im tired, im tired of words that people really dont care about it, etc… shit, i just want to hear the music, i dont want to read what some asshole thinks i should be feeling, or whatever. so from here on out, no words, just music… well limited words. you understand what im saying.

m. lockwood porter’s 27 is one of the best records of the year, its an absolutely amazing collection of songs. you can pick it up for 9 bucks on his bandcamp page. cannot recommend it enough.

centro-matic “after all this time” – new song


well, the end is near, dear people. good night, good luck and godspeed my friends, centro-matic, one of the greatest bands to ever grace this planet. if youre lucky to see them on their farewell tour, i am jealous, but i dont need to hear about it, cause im a dick.

hail mary mallon – bestiary (album stream)

i dont listen to too much new hip hop, but when i do aesop rock usually has a hand in it, somehow. hail mary mallon is aesop and rob sonic and dj big wiz. this record is hot as fuck! prob the best hip hop record ive heard well probably since the last aesop record. i would be lying if i didnt find myself zoning out to watching whoever play donkey kong. check rhymesayers for all the details.

fire mountain “doing fine”


i know it may seem like everything i “write” about is awesome, its only cause it is. i dont waste my time with crap, its been this way for 9 years, and hopefully will be continuing that tradition for at least a few more years to come. anyway, again, way late to the party on mentioning this record, but fire mountain’s debut, all dies down, has been one of my go to records for the past 4/5 months. its a southern record that isnt…. sure its got its roots in the south, but it is borderless. its just a damn fine rock record. i mean, cmon i hear a xylophone, i think, how many southern rock records can you hear said instrument? one thing i love about this record, is that it is not pigeon holed into one constraint of a certain genre, and i hope they continue to “really explore the studio space” – google it. how about this, fire mountain, you make all dies down, then you make a double record. i think you have it in you! definitely a band i have huge hopes for.

the persian leaps “firestarter” and “pretty boy” – video


well hold up here! hold up a god damn second! st paul’s the persian leaps are killing my little brain this morning, or by the time i finish these possibly 6-10 sentences it will be afternoon, cause thats how long it takes me to do stuff. either way, they got a new ep out entitled drive drive delay and this thing is freaking awesome! c’mon the first song “firestarter” sounds like something gbv would have put out during the propeller-era. shit the entire thing is pure fuzzy pop greatness. my only complaint is its over way too quickly, i need, and demand more! they do have two other releases that i shall be checking out asap, and i recommend you do the same. srsly if you dig teenage fanclub, gbv, the smiths, 90’s fuzz pop, etc you shall love these guys. def the best ep ive heard this year. btw, they’re playing some shows around minny make sure you check em out.
