I'm on the second listen to the new Radiohead. Even better than the first listen. The album concludes with a gorgeous rendition of "True Love Waits." That really was some wait.

Yes! And I thought last year was a good one for music. This year is killing it. This album is spectacular.

I'm not spurning Sandy, but this isn't something I'd....inflict...on her, but it is brilliant. Either that or it will clear any sinus congestion;

New Chance is really good, though after TLOP it feels a little redundant, though his verses are always so good. The new Post Malone tape is surprisingly strong as well, and the features on there are so good. "Monte" is a strong contender for the year's best song.

After seeing him open for Thugger Thugger (where his performance wasn't great, though Young Thug was incredible), and loving his verses on Chance's and Post Malone's project, I downloaded Lil Yachty's Lil Boat mixtape and will listen to that soon.

Just saw Charles Bradley and his Extraordinaies instead of X Ambassadors. He was awesome! Highly recommended, especially live.

The Kills - Ash & Ice
An injury had Jamie Hince exploring synths while a hand injury kept him off the guitar.
It's an interesting and surprisingly beefy addition to their sleazy guitar driven garage sound.
I dig it.

I'd talk about how the new Tegan and Sara album is a disappointment, but I think I said that about Heartthrob at this point of its release...and that is now my favorite album from them.
