|Three Years Of College Down|
Can't believe I'm about to be a senior. Saying goodbye to a lot of friends this week as rgraduation approaches. Starting an internship in Cleveland this June and then taking over as rco-Editor in Chief of my school's newspaper. Here's a bunch of albums that I dug this year, rsome albums that I jammed with my friends a lot, some bands I saw and some bands I'm rgonna see this summer.
Just got into this band. Some of the most ugly and hateful music I've ever heard done as well as anybody.
Souls at Zero
Doesn't get enough credit for being one of Neurosis' best albums.
Reach Beyond the Sun
Album of the year so far.
Album of 2012 for sure.
The Heat Death of the Universe
Can't believe I took so long to get into these guys--this album is totally off the wall good.
Might actually be their best work, but it's in tough competition with Game Theory and undun.
|7||Macklemore and Ryan Lewis|
Every year there are a few songs that my entire campus falls in love with, from the hipsters to the sorority girls. This year, they
were "Thrift Shop" and Frank Ocean's "Thinkin' Bout You." I'm partial to the former, and spent a lot of time talking about this
album as a whole. I can't believe just how huge Macklemore has gotten in such a short span, but it's exciting to see someone
that good in the mainstream.
The House That Heaven Built was definitely a soundtrack to much of the year's festivities...
...but not as much as Ghost With a Boner has been recently.
|10||The Hold Steady|
A large group gathered on my porch for a few hours yesterday to drink and listen to the Hold Steady's discography. Spring has
|11||Burned Up Bled Dry|
Cloned Slaves... For Slaves
I got really into powerviolence this year, and this was probably my favorite release I listened to.
I was able to turn one of my housemates onto this (and El-P in general). Definitely the best hip-hop I've heard in a while.
|13||Maps & Atlases|
Beware and Be Grateful
Saw them in Akron in January, right up close. Great show.
|14||Minus the Bear|
Saw them with Circa Survive over spring break. Solid performance.
TONIGHT in Cleveland at the Grog Shop
The Money Store
June 9 at the Beachland Ballroom
July 25 at the Beachland Ballroom (although I'd rather see the Melvins on the same night, I know more people that will go to
|18||Code Orange Kids|
Love is Love // Return to Dust
Going to BLED Fest on May 25. I'm most excited for these guys, but also psyched for Pianos Become the Teeth, Empire!
Empire!, Andrew W.K., CityCop. and The World is a Beautiful Place and I am No Longer Afraid to Die.
Maybe at the Beachland Ballroom?
