December 2016

Holy Wave - She Put A Seed In My Ear

Devo:  This year-end list is the most unique and consistent with my musical taste that I've found.  And she speaks so passionately about the albums that you can't help but want to like them:  The Seeds In My Ears

EL VY - Are These My Jets?

Timbo:  I shared bad wine and Conor Oberst's set with some 45ish-but-childish Kiwi bros at ACL this year. They all went by code names, which ruled -- Hallelujah, School Zone and ...fuck, I forget the last one. Anyway, one of them still texts me random music links and he sent this a few days back.

D.R.A.M. - Cash Machine

Meat MD:  Poor guy got scooped on Cha Cha by fucking Drake of all people, but he's still chugging away making awesome shit.

Nick Colletti - Suh My Fuh Dih Bih

Tatarsky:  Suh my fuh dih bih.

George Michael - I Will Be Your Father Figure

Mike Tyson:  Show me a better five o'clock shadow and I'll show you a liar.

Fall 2016

Tinariwen - Toumast Tincha

Meat MD:  I have this list on my phone that is saved for things I write down while drunk, often music recs told to me while drunk.   Props to someone.

Until The Ribbon Breaks - A Taste Of Silver

Ding:  Very pleased with my halloween band assignment and promotion from Feldman fluffer.

Wishes - I Want To Be Alone With You

Pooh:  Fun fact - "While Ninja did not necessarily get along with everybody on the Chappie set, Blomkamp had, at one point, wanted him to star in another one of his films, Elysium. Matt Damon ended up taking the lead role."

Old Icelandic hymn sung in a German train station

Rory:  Old Icelandic hymn sung in a German train station.

Mobb Deep - Shook Ones Part II

Michelangelo:  Just in case any of you health conscious bros end up in the hooscal, My Infamous Prison Cookbook by Albert Prodigy Johnson will be published this month.

August 2016

Ra Ra Riot - Water

Devo:  Rostam is starting to make some more music outside of VW.  He made this song with Ra Ra Riot and he's got a project with the lead singer of the Walkmen, though all it does is remind me that I don't like the lead singer of the Walkmen.

Michael Kiwanuka - Black Man In A White World

Meat MD:  New album by michael kinawuka is legit (produced by my dude danger mouse).  Wait - kiwanuka not kinawuka.  proving his point he's a black man in a white world.

Whitney - No Woman

Adrien Brody:  It's jarring to look at Steve Earle in the video for Copperhead Road and then think about him as Walon in The Wire.

Quinn XCII - Another Day In Paradise

Ding:  Quick shout for a couple home-town kids Quinn XCII (yes, that's the year he was born). I will hate this song when it gets played on the radio, but enjoy for now and play for your GF. Hey, if it can happen to Posner...
