    April 5 02:53 AM
  • BigPleb Dude I'm with you, can feel that this new 'Tones album is gonna drop the ball! Eventually got into KNY but the ridiculous 2 week circle jerk will happen again.
    April 4 12:20 PM

    April 3 09:54 PM
  • Rowan5215 check my hammock review dude
    April 2 12:35 AM
  • Jade I'm heading to work soon, but I'd be happy to message you on FB about this for a little bit tonight if that works for you
    April 1 11:35 AM
  • Jade You are the one who has perpetuated this dilemma while my actions have been solely based on feeling decent about myself as a human being. You come here to talk about music and I come here to do the same, though, and I agree that we have the capacity to co-exist in the same realm here. Please just acknowledge that you've been showing some pretty malicious behavior towards me so I can know you mean this.
    April 1 11:02 AM
  • Jade Or how about you don't pretend you aren't solely responsible for this "feud"? I've done nothing directly to single you out- even when we had that discussion on Facebook, you continued to dig your own grave by being transmisogynistic to my friends, privately messaging me and being hostile as **** about your dislike of me. I've talked about this incident with close friends because it's been annoying to have you complain about me with every single thing I've posted on here.

  • Artuma things are good man, been kinda busy. what about you?
    March 30 03:16 AM
  • Artuma i don't use dropbox but it's ok the album is gonna be released in a few days anyway
    March 30 02:33 AM
  • beachdude Yeah I've got a series planned for April, so that'll keep me busy on the reviewing front. I've been slacking on writing them lately.
    March 29 10:45 PM
  • beachdude It's so good! Might write about it.
    March 29 07:39 PM
  • JigglyPDiddy Thanks, bb!
    March 28 07:34 AM
  • JigglyPDiddy Hey, baby. Go read my Homogenic review. It's normal-er.
    March 26 01:20 PM
  • JigglyPDiddy Been thinking of writing up a review on a Midori record or a Tom Waits record. So, who knows? Anything can happen. Hehe.
    March 20 10:44 PM
  • JigglyPDiddy No one's, to be completely honest. I used to have an old account, but I started a new one.
    March 20 09:53 PM
  • Arcade if you haven't seen Devon Welsh from Majical Cloudz has put out an album under the name Belave, it's pretty decent. and it's free:
    March 19 08:45 PM
  • FuckBoneSmugglers If you become a tranny they'll cut your dick off and sell it to China
    March 17 09:23 PM
  • ShakerFaker no worries. i'm happy to get criticism. you can email me here:
    March 7 11:41 AM
  • ShakerFaker hi. i'm glad you commented on my review. i write on here cause i need a lot of help with my writing, so if you could deconstruct some more or give more advice, if you have time of course, that would be really great and helpful. thanks!
    March 5 04:56 PM
  • plane Yeah. Sucks but I'll wait
    February 26 05:46 PM
  • Arcade i don't understand at all anybody who can listen to "Famous" or "Feedback" and think that it's in any way at all better than Yeezus or MBDTF tbf
    February 18 07:31 PM
  • Arcade so much of it just feels like it's half-done. and that album cover.. it's clearly been made 2 days before release in MS paint. Lol.
    February 18 07:03 PM
  • Arcade don't worry the life of pablo definitely sucks, we are the ones who will be proven right in time.
    February 17 06:59 AM
  • guitarded_chuck its all good mate i get a bit defensive when people start claiming me to be pretentious elitist or care about cred because its not only the furthest thing from the truth i think those types are the worst
    February 16 11:26 AM
  • beachdude Thanks a ton man! It's good to hear from you. How have you been?
    February 14 05:34 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Thanks Gyro, rec me anything interesting you find in 2016 esp if you think It'd make a good Doof review
    February 14 11:12 AM
  • JamieTwort Thanks for the kind words Gyro but I didn't actually apply for staff this time around. I don't feel my output has been sufficient enough in the past year to warrant a promotion from contrib to staff. I'll probably apply next time around though.
    February 13 05:28 AM
  • Jacquibim them* I'll* - I'm sorry I'm half asleep.
    February 12 03:12 PM
  • Jacquibim No worries, my email is just my username I prob won't get to the straight away but I try ASAP.
    February 12 03:07 PM
  • Jacquibim I'd just put them up anyway. I had the same problem about halfway through last year where I was second guessing myself on every sentence but after I posted them I realised I was worried about nothing haha
    February 12 03:02 PM
  • Jacquibim Cheers dude, any plans for you to resume writing in the not too distant future?
    February 12 02:40 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene No problem at all, man. That helps heaps. I'll start with Heaven and Las Vegas and Anastasis and hopefully it'll give me good foundation to build upon. Thanks a lot, I appreciate it. Just thought I'd ask since I'm a fan of your reviews and generally like your higher rated stuff.
    January 28 08:14 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene You seem like the biggest Beach House fan on this site, so I was wondering if you could recommend me some similar artists/influences? I got Cocteau Twins from the comments, but unsure where to start. It's cool if not, but it'd be much appreciated. Thanks!
    January 19 01:03 PM
  • Frippertronics no worries dude, thanks
    January 8 08:37 AM
  • Frippertronics AMA BLACKSTAR
    January 8 07:08 AM
  • Frippertronics Yeah. Had he known, that'd be in pretty poor taste. Oh well dude. Just don't say anything bad about Blackstar, he'll get real mad like he did at Johnny.
    January 7 08:49 PM
  • Frippertronics It was more in the case of trying too hard to insult someone without really knowing what really happened. The guy wasn't around when that stuff happened.
    January 7 01:56 PM
  • WilhelmBlack He is my brother and I was going to explain that I said something horrible along those lines and I am sorry. Frippertronics, you feisty lady.
    January 7 03:36 AM
  • Deadsouls96 I feel horrible and I am deeply sorry about my joke if you caught it on Wilhelm's list. I did not know about that personal thing that happened to someone so close to you. I was just fed up with everyone poking fun at my brother.
    January 6 11:18 PM
  • Nocturnalize **** off you ****
    December 28 10:50 PM
  • NorthernSkylark Not much of a gamer I'm afraid. But I will check your sweet recs for sure. Listening to a lot of good shot rec, that empress of album! So smooth.
    December 20 10:48 AM
  • NorthernSkylark Hello gyro. Won't you rec me some enjoyable 15 stuff? :) besides, are you alone?
    December 20 06:09 AM
  • SowingSeason Thanks dude, love that you loved the blog. Also, I agree with what you said about my Seven Swans rating. I kind of gave it a 3.5 floor assuming it'd grow, but I haven't had the time to give it subsequent listens.
    December 12 10:09 PM
  • SowingSeason It's actually not a nostalgia kick so much as it is just re-rating albums after the wipe I asked for a year or two ago. I used to have some 2,000-3,000 albums rated, but literally half of those ratings no longer applied so I wanted a clean slate. Now I just rate stuff I've forgotten about as I stumble across it. And I started reviewing the new Adele but honestly I don't think I'll have time to finish it with work and the end of year staff features getting under way...
    November 23 02:59 AM
  • BrushedRed Thanks. I think it's funny that it made it to the top of the sound offs. Didn't expect that lol
    November 23 12:33 AM
  • SachikoM Nice. I would never rec you anything bad though..... I know what I'm doing (well, I think I do).
    November 9 04:25 PM
  • NorthernSkylark i'll give chelsea wolfe a shot, been meaning to anyway. yeah i adore that pratt album
    November 9 03:26 PM
  • Jacquibim Don't be sorry, I had a feeling you just didn't want to talk about it (at least on here) which is understandable. But yeah, was just wondering how you were. I don't have you added because I sort of want to keep Sputnikers off my facebook for.. reasons.
    November 9 01:35 PM
  • NorthernSkylark viet cong and jessica pratt, yours? something singer/songwritery please
    November 9 11:34 AM
  • treeqt. same
    November 9 10:43 AM
  • Jethro42 here's the link;
    November 8 03:10 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey Gyro! I've made a Gazpacho's top 20 list if ever you're interested. List remains unpopular so far. I'm looking for some visit haha.
    November 8 03:06 PM
  • NorthernSkylark thanks! got any sweet recs?
    November 5 03:01 AM
  • SachikoM Also, leave your morals at the door.
    October 31 07:29 PM
  • SachikoM mmmk, I'll throw one easier one in there: Propergol - Renegade (this is the easy one lol,, Brethren - Savage Inequalities, Bagman - Welcome to My ****ing Misery (beware they censor the link lol,****ingMisery2008netRelease2009), Bizarre Uproar - Purification (omg it's free,, Machismo - Severe Disconnect (on bandcamp). Maybe too harsh?????
    October 31 07:13 PM
  • SachikoM Do you want me to go easy on you or do you wanna get ****ed up?
    October 31 07:04 PM
  • Rowan5215 did a beach house review sup
    October 23 04:27 AM
  • Frippertronics new pharmakon WHEN?
    October 20 07:24 AM
  • FreddieDelaney31 Yeah man lemme know what ya think, I'm totally hooked on it
    October 19 07:40 PM
  • FreddieDelaney31 link for new Joanna Newsom. I think it's her best album and actually might top Sufjan for me for AOTY.
    October 19 06:05 PM
  • SowingSeason I actually just bumped it to a 3...found it much more enjoyable the third time around and actually prefer it over DC
    October 16 10:13 PM
  • SowingSeason and pretty atmospheres with no real sense of vigor or purpose. I dunno man. Because I know some people say the same thing about Carrie and Lowell being repetitive but for some reason I adore that.
    October 16 03:44 PM
  • SowingSeason Why must every song on their two new releases sound identical? :( you may not believe me, but I was hyped for DC, and even after I found that disappointing, I still had hope for lucky stars. It's just not diverse or interesting to me - rather another case of twinkly
    October 16 03:42 PM
  • FourthReich Nice av dweeb
    October 14 10:39 PM
  • Jacquibim Hey dude, just wondering how things are on your end after some of the problems you faced a little while ago. I noticed you're posting a lot more, hoping that's a sign of something positive.
    September 8 01:38 AM
  • Asdfp277 Yeah don't worry, I'm very blunt at talking too it's like 80% of my fault too, but my bluntness prevents me from seeing the thread as a bad thing; issues were discussed, and a few arguments were had about the music and art so that's great !!
    September 2 04:12 PM
  • Frippertronics where exactly am i to come at you, matty french?
    August 31 05:50 PM

  • rocketsfall floors me every listen man. you know anything quite like it?
    August 22 09:29 PM
  • rocketsfall good turn on the bright lights rating tho!
    August 22 09:23 PM
  • rocketsfall haha good luck with that. didn't mean to come off as aggressive man.
    August 22 09:20 PM
  • rocketsfall you don't like glassjaw and you need everybody in the world to know it
    August 22 09:16 PM
  • FourthReich Liberal side fiscal policy is very much influenced by the leader of the country and is what i take issue with. Its a sad farce in terms of the incredible amount of models showing the failures of increasing taxes to any bracket, raising ceilings, changing interest rates et cetera. Now thats not to say bush or many republican presidents were not guilty of this. Most office holders align with keynesian policy
    August 16 03:04 AM
  • FourthReich You seem like the stereotypical 20 something obsessed with everything normative. My disdain is entirely economic it has nothing to do with normative side politics.
    August 16 02:59 AM
  • FourthReich Dont be so quick to judge you asshole
    August 16 12:19 AM
  • FourthReich Im an economics majour at uc davis lmfao do you want to call my cell and i could discuss with you in full detail why i think Obama's keynesian tendancies are futhering us into a dead cat bounce??
    August 16 12:19 AM
  • Mongi123 The only ambient albums I really jam religiously are Hammocks stuff and Shadows Of The Sun but yea Hammock is one of my favorites of post rock atm.
    August 9 01:28 PM
  • Mongi123 Damn I'm really loving Hammock a lot lately haha
    August 9 01:26 PM
  • theBoneyKing Wow, that song rules! I'll definitely check out some more of their stuff. It sounds like they're right up my alley.
    August 5 06:57 AM
  • Tyler. Because they are also pretty awesome :] I can only hope they'll grow on you
    August 4 08:25 PM
  • LordePots deal with it
    July 11 05:34 PM
  • BigHans I know what you mean. I basically went a year without posting.
    July 7 11:19 AM
  • BigHans Werent you staff bro?
    July 7 11:07 AM
  • LordePots nig.
    July 5 12:53 AM
  • LordePots nigguh waaaaaat
    July 5 12:43 AM
  • oltnabrick check it out, let me know what you think
    July 4 09:52 PM
  • LivingThrowaway New abr sucked dong... Just like the rest of their discography imo.
    June 30 06:18 PM
  • LordePots get off your period bro there is no reason to be offended by me having heard a bunch of albums i dont like grow up
    June 29 09:13 PM
  • NorthernSkylark hello gyro
    June 11 10:03 AM
  • SowingSeason Great track. Guess I'll have to go in order to "get" his new stuff.
    June 11 07:37 AM
  • Frippertronics hey, i was wondering anything you'd rec that's similar to Pharmakon's stuff. I've been told Yellow Swans and Puce Mary would be some similar groups, but what would you say is best for someone who prefers stuff like Bestial Burden's title track and Abandon's "Ache"?
    June 9 01:37 AM
  • LordePots I liked the one before it better
    June 8 08:27 PM
  • LordePots was just joking :]
    June 7 08:26 PM
  • conesmoke Yeah dude, for real. It was a fun experience being an extra, met a lot of really cool people. Reccomend it :)
    May 20 12:27 AM
  • NorthernSkylark nope it sounds very chill tho. but i'm not really in a post-rock mood atm. i will keep it in mind tho
    May 16 08:14 AM
  • NorthernSkylark your call. anything i might have missed out on
    May 14 07:40 PM
  • NorthernSkylark hello dude. care to rec me something? in need of new jams!
    May 14 07:29 PM
  • AmericnZero02 I always loved that 1-2-3 punch of Confession, Who's Killing Who, and Just Like I remember. Broken Wings is also pretty epic. The basswork on that record is really great. The mix has a really full, bottom heavy feel to it.
    May 11 01:10 PM
  • AmericnZero02 Ahh, the good ol' days of tbt reviews. I was huge on BtD for a while. I'm not as much of a post-hardcore guy these days, but when I do occasionally give Built by Blood a spin it still holds together quite nicely. They recently started playing shows with their original singer again and there's talks of a new record.
    May 11 12:53 PM
  • SowingSeason I'll definitely try it out at some point =) Life's been crazy right now though bro, barely time to do things IRL. My schedule has been work, sleep, wedding plan, repeat. I'm trying to do a Mumford and Sons review atm but if I can't finish it in the next few days I'll request the arcade review or someone else's to be featured. How's everything been going on your end?
    May 4 09:10 AM
  • Faraudo Well, I really liked it, man, like everything they've released before. The thing is, this one is a bit more straight forward, but still with Mew's antics. A bit poppier, yes, but goddamn, this is pop made the right way. And also, Rows is probably one of my favorite Mew songs, along with Clinging to a Bad Dream. Maybe in time, it'll grow.
    April 28 03:36 AM
  • Faraudo Here you go, man. - Plus Minus (2015).rar.html
    April 23 04:50 PM
  • Hep Kat yeah. my mom's friend Arlene is Jerry McDonnell's mom. we listened to the demos at her house last night. i also went to high school with charles bissell's godson, he's a good friend of mine
    April 17 03:57 PM
  • DoctorDoom Yeah, Dirt in the ground is great. That record, for me, is diverse but extremely catchy. Dissonant but somehow still catchy.
    April 5 11:37 AM
  • NorthernSkylark i think so? we have similar taste! try connie converse, timeless stuff. do you have a different rating policy now? i see a lot of 4.5's and 5's
    April 2 07:53 PM
  • OvDeath Well I hope you'll like all of it, despite what you may think of me personally! Let me know when you get around to the whole thing, man.
    April 2 11:06 AM
  • OvDeath dunno if you know but my album is out now so you can 1 it for real this time if you like:

    March 31 09:57 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Actually haven't jammed Bonobo in a while, haha, but I remember loving all three of those albums.
    March 28 01:23 PM
  • hogan900 Thrice is meh to me too, but present godspeed is way too focused on the whole drone thing, that they are making their music just way to long and boorish. Atleast that's what I think.
    March 28 08:31 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Hehe, might hit you up after exam season.
    March 28 02:03 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot any idea if "Evolve" is a game worth grabbing?
    March 28 01:07 AM
  • hogan900 Tell me about it dude. Listened to the whole thing three times, and literally was only awake for the last song.
    March 27 05:46 PM
  • Arcade so is new sufjan actually that good
    March 27 03:02 AM
  • klap lol
    March 26 11:33 PM
  • Comatorium. Dude you literally turned off Asunder, Sweet right before the best paaaaart
    March 24 03:39 PM
  • LordePots haha good point. also i disagree about snox. he comes off a lot worse online to a lot of people than he actually is. plus he's got a handicap for being australian. as far as australian males go id say hes one of the least ignorant ive ever had the displeasure of conversing with lol
    March 21 06:59 PM
  • LordePots yeah do it dude, keep an open mind even if u hate the guy.
    March 21 06:15 PM
  • LordePots thats pretty s***ty dude, he put a tonne of work into it and its actually excellent.
    March 21 03:25 PM
  • Relinquished glad u found confidence in something at least, good for u for pressing forward
    March 21 10:52 AM

    March 19 07:21 PM
  • LordePots why'd u 1 snoxalls new alb dude :/
    March 19 03:29 PM
  • LordePots apology would have been warranted if u hadnt demanded it and been so condescending about it agreed but u were a being big twat and i dont apologize to people who are being twatty. that is the sole reason i didnt apologize, none of that other stuff. trve facts. but agreed on that last bit
    March 11 07:30 PM

    February 20 01:29 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Thanks Matt! Really pleasantly surprised here. As mark says below, hope you get a ghost promotion in the near future man!
    February 20 11:45 AM
  • cryptside Yeah, by all accounts it seems there will be a secondary set of promos due to the fact that they talk specifically about this being the first round. Just me hoping though. :]
    February 20 10:21 AM
  • ComeToDaddy Someone had to fly the flag, might even put something together for Ristorante now that I've got the little tag to get it some attention haha. Thanks man, pretty stoked (:
    February 20 10:11 AM
  • cryptside Thanks man, seriously appreciate it. I'm very happy that it happened, I'm hoping that they just ghost promote you and get it over with.
    February 20 10:06 AM

    February 17 10:30 PM

  • AmericanFlagAsh This post from you in 2010 on the All Delighted People thread made me laugh: "I'll probably never listen to this, but nice review Kirg" and now you have it at a 5

  • Metalstyles Busy! Busy but increasingly positive. 2014 was pretty rough for me (which is more than a little weird for me to type knowing what hell you went through that year), but I'm slowly getting back on track, finding little things to appreciate and finding more motivation for everything. And how are you man, what's up?

  • Jacquibim I went with my Autechre, Krusseldorf and Ulcerate reviews, the latter has been pretty much completely re-written since you last read it.

  • Arcade why p4k sucks -

  • Ponton I got drunk but why not. Give her another go
    February 6 05:36 AM
  • Trebor. Thanks man. It sure is, I see you've been listening to crash of rhinos and wu lyf and 5d Moon
    February 6 12:34 AM
  • Hurricanslash Ayyyyy, sorry about the whole discussion in your thread.
    February 4 12:50 PM
  • LordePots not enough to feel the need to bring it to your shoutbox, jesus man
    February 4 04:30 AM
  • Jacquibim Will do, any reviews you think I should reference?
    February 3 02:01 PM
  • Mongi123 Awesome but no Floating Away In Every Direction or Kenotic? Those are my two favs so far.
    February 3 12:01 PM
  • Mongi123 I've only heard Raising Your Voice and Kenotic but they're both amazing even though Raising Your Voice does drag at times.
    February 3 11:58 AM
  • Mongi123 Ok and also checked out Kenotic for the first time. Blown away and it may be a 5 soon haha
    February 3 11:56 AM
  • Mongi123 Hey bro check out my latest rev. I think you'd love them.
    February 2 11:44 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I'm glad you think I have a chance haha, there's so many applicants this year and Jom said they'd up the stakes for the position. But they cut 15 people so that might mean they're gonna let like 5 users be promoted
    February 2 06:40 PM
  • Gameofmetal That means a lot man, thank you. And yeah I'd agree with all your other choices.
    February 2 02:20 PM
  • Gameofmetal Do you really think that? I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get it, but thelastsignal has convinced me to throw in my hat just because.
    February 2 01:59 PM
  • Deviant. Glad I could help, and nice buy. Marley's a freaking gem. There's a Jamaican "rasta' styled pair, and I swear to god the volume gets louder whenever I jam some reggae haha
    February 2 05:04 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Cool thanks a lot. I'm guessing they promote only a few people per year, Oranges and Johnny will almost certainly get it and maybe Scuro or gameofmetal.
    January 31 02:53 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I'm still waiting for the news article and will probably apply but idk what my chances will be, especially against some of the other applicants but we'll see. Do you remember the process being very stressful or difficult to get the position?
    January 31 02:35 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Did you used to be a contributor?
    January 31 01:58 PM
  • Hyperion1001 haha well im glad you found something to like about it, tbh uviol is my favorite track too and one of my favorite Ae tracks in general. it reminds me of being in a quiet industrial environment with lots of steel and glass at very sharp angles all around me with snow glently falling from the sky. its a very evocative track.

  • IntriguingSergei Haha, very true; I'm sure I'd already know! :P That's actually very interesting, if unsurprising - this site does work a lot from prejudice. To be honest, I wouldn't say that Sergei circumvents perceptions of my main account - it's more of a means to write some pretty silly experiments and see what people think without any context (which, I suppose, is similar...)

  • cryptside I don't think we are friends on fb, and of course I am at work where I have horrible reception on my phone and no access to fb on my work comp. Let me try to find on fb though.
    January 30 10:31 AM
  • cryptside Don't know if any of this is helping you lol.
    January 30 10:28 AM
  • cryptside who didn't seem to care if he lived or died the last six months of his life. He was my best friend, and that was rough. As hard as it is right now for you, I know that that only way I survived was by doing my best to lean on people that wanted to be around me even with everything going on.
    January 30 10:27 AM
  • cryptside The truth was that even though my family went through the roughest time I have ever personally gone through, the only thing that healed me or my brother and mom was the time that it took for things to right themselves. When my mom gave up on her life, I did the best I could to take care of her still. But (as you well know), I couldn't help someone see a light that they refused to see. No matter what I did, how hard I tried, it didn't seem to matter. And even before that, I dealt with my father
    January 30 10:18 AM
  • cryptside You have to try to resolve some of the guilt and depression that you're feeling. I took the weight of the world on my shoulders, and I lived with that for a long time. I let myself believe that no matter what I do in my life, it will be overshadowed by my failure to keep my family whole. (cont.)
    January 30 10:15 AM
  • cryptside When you take on a certain responsibility with your family, and they allow you to do that, then you just feel like you are the one that fails them time after time. The truth is a little more harsh than that, even though it's harder to see through the veil of depression. As difficult as things are for you right now, (cont.)
    January 30 10:13 AM
  • cryptside No man, I totally get it. Crippling is the right word for depression, and it truly felt like no one understood. I spent a lot of my time escaping reality after my dad passed. I was so involved with my family, and it was easy to blame myself for when things went wrong because I was the one that took care of everything. (cont)
    January 30 10:12 AM
  • cryptside Hey buddy, doing well. Work is good, personal life is good. There was a time when all of that was a mess, so I can't complain at all. How are you doing, dude? Everything good?
    January 30 08:40 AM
  • Hyperion1001 its 100% totally cool if you dont like it, there is no stipulation that anyone has to like anything. i just like defending my point of view because it gives me a chance to really digest my own perspective, which is what i consider "fun" lol.
    January 30 08:32 AM
  • Hyperion1001 haha i didnt think you were attacking at all man. on the contrary, i love having discussions like that, not only because it helps strengthen my perspective because i have to really think about why i enjoy something, but in the end it might mean that someone else gets to enjoy something in the same way that i enjoy it, which is one of my favorite things. i tried my best to not come off as snarky too so it it did i apologize, but i much prefer an even discussion and discourse.
    January 30 08:30 AM
  • NorthernSkylark i've only heard those two and swoon and it was alright. but steve mcqueen is where it's at, so no shame in only having heard that one :]
