Sometimes, you see a band's name and you just know you're going to be really into them. This was absolutely one of those bands. Their self-titled record is very high in my album of the year list, and if you like feedback drenched rock I highly recommend it.
I love these damn squids, okay? The music in Splatoon is pretty lit in general but this is one of the best songs on the soundtrack.
Thanks for putting up me all week folks!
This is probably my song of the summer. Great beat, great hook & verse from Ferg, what more could you want?
This has all the swears in it, so fair warning.
It's a song about my favorite movie ever. From Cellar Door, an album I love and am thinking about tonight for the first time in a long time because of my FMD post.
Not the rad metal band, unfortunately. I am thinking about The Triple Rock, which is shutting down next week. It is my all time favorite venue, and I am pretty heartbroken to lose it. I didn't see a ton of shows there, but all of them were pretty memorable.
The first show I saw there was Okkervil River & John Vanderslice the weekend of my 22nd birthday. I took J to see The Wrens and Boris there. I was able to catch The Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower on an incredible bill with The Locust. And in July, I got to see Mitski for the fourth time.
I'm sad I couldn't make it down for Boris last month. If I had more notice about it closing I probably would have done something to make it happen.
Does anyone else have good memories of the Triple Rock, or another now defunct venue? Drop those and/or your ten below.
One of my very favorite active bands. This is the best song on their new record.
From 2016's Shit Bug. I'm real excited for the new Guts Club record that they're finishing up now.
From the excellently titled Stranger in the Alps.
From their debut, So Sick on In The Red, my favorite record label.
As the year goes on, I keep finding myself coming back to Psychopomp. It's an album that is over way too fast, but it's impactful over that short running time. I'm glad I got to see them this summer. They were killer live. I have another song below the cut because the video is awesome.
