I think is no match for Mondo Grosso - Labyrinth, which is the best Japanese song of the last decade.

Prime youtube recommendations-core [2] not the best of the decade but it is a good song sure

Digging: Hashirikomies - ??

@SpaceMan how'd you mean, exactly? I dig Fishmans plenty but I wouldn't call myself a fanboy and if anything I'd say the most positive end of their consensus has been the most gatekept, but maybe I'm getting the wrong end of this?

Digging: Nick Cave and Warren Ellis - Carnage

Solid review - glad to see more Fishmans write ups here. I think you did a great job of pinpointing, in simple terms, what really makes Fishmans special (without just gushing or waxing poetic - which is easy to do).



I can attest to the fact that Fishmans is a *difficult* band to write about.



I've always preferred their later, more psych-influenced work personally. The pure dub/reggae sound never really captured me, so I sat on reviewing this one, myself. Looks like you beat me to it. The best I could come up with was describing this album as "Animal Crossing-core."



Maybe I should take a crack at Uchu Nippon Setegaya, instead.

I'm just saying that liking this band and also saying "people just feel obligated to like it / some people dont even understand what they like" is silly and pretty condescending

"I'm just saying that liking this band and also saying "people just feel obligated to like it / some people dont even understand what they like" is silly and pretty condescending"

Oh yeah for sure, if you took that part seriously; ofc don't agree with it. Don't see anything wrong with liking the band a fair bit and being a little confused by apparently universal levels of love for them elsewhere though

On that note, anyone who listens to the Microphones and doesn't come away more condescending is objectively listening to the Microphones wrong

honestly after that whole colton list i think you are just intimidated by the depth of microphones 2020 due to your own penchant for psuedo-depthillectualism

That is largely true insofar as I have it on good authority that Phil Elevrum used the same writing processes for that album as I did for the list

and they scare me
