| ||Avey Tare Down There|
I can see this one becoming misunderstood, and perhaps my praise too as misguided loyalty. But Avey Tare is intentionally squandering great work here, which is something we've seen him do before. I consider it murky brilliance, where Avey attempts to chronicle his inner psyche at the same time he attempts to elevate us, the audience, above it. Down There acts as a warning and an invitation: we can either watch thoughtfully, wary, from the tree limbs or delve headfirst into the roots. And let me tell you, it is a fucking party down here.

| ||ANOHNI HOPELESSNESS|
An album ahead of its time by virtue of its tardiness. We are too late; nothing to do but wait for drone bombs, execution, hopelessness. Fuck to "4 Degrees," laugh at "Obama," consider yourself above it all; turn off the news. You're a piece of shit. ANOHNI is a piece of shit. Daniel Lopatin, I don't know, he probably sucks too. Hudson Mohawke can definitely get bent. A peculiar album where every song's a ballad without a single track functioning like much of anything, just all escalating synths and battering rams and pluvial music beds. Party like the doomsday clock's at 11:59.

|calmrose awesome, will definitely check that out, thank you!|
|Winesburgohio i will follow your instructions to the letter, thank you very much mate!!! one final tidbit: the same friend met Bjork in an Icelandic banter. Bjork allegedly brought my friend a drink, recommended a compilation of ancient viking music and encouraged her to explore her bisexuality. When i'm an old grizzled man this will be my praxis for encouraging Queer youth.|
