51. A Tribe Called Quest, We Got it From Here, Thank You 4 Your Service (2016) Seriously, has Tribe EVER put out a less-than-stellar album? This one just opens up with everything wrong with the world. There ain’t a space program for n*****s, so you stuck here. Yeah, basically. A line later, talking about our female President not […]

50. Run the Jewels, RTJ3 (2016) Just drop everything and listen to this. I’m late to the RtJ game, since I’ve been out of the states for a while and not really paying much attention to new music (she says as she adds entry #50 to her music recommendations page). But seriously, it’s hard to keep track […]

49. Wild Beasts, Boy King (2016) I think we must have heard them at Summer Sonic: they didn’t play, but their music was being played in a few different places, I Shazamed it, and then we listened to it at home. I’d known who the Wild Beasts were and had listened to some of their earlier […]

48. The Avalanches, Wildflower (2016) Because of COURSE. I have A LOT of music to get through and am going to do my best to deal with all of the amazing albums that have come out that we’ve had on repeat. We’re starting here, since we’ve all had to wait 16 years for this to come out. […]

47. David Bowie, Blackstar (2016) Again, because of course. I’m not late to the game, just seriously back-logged with music. There are SO MANY good albums to talk about right now! There isn’t enough time in the day. So Blackstar came out and then David died and we cried for days. We listened to it non-stop […]

46. DJ Shadow, the Mountain Will Fall (2016) Hey. You wanna hear a good joke? Nobody speak, nobody get choked. So seriously, this album is effing excellent, straight through. I know I’ve been lax on the music posts lately, but clearly there’s been a lot of not-musical stuff going on while so many great albums […]

I survived: the blaring summer heat at Tokyo’s Summer Sonic 2016!

We decided to do shit right this time around, since Radiohead and Underworld headlined this year’s Summer Sonic in Tokyo and Osaka. We actually rushed and bought our tickets online while we were at the airport in January, waiting to board our flight to England. As soon as the tickets were available, we jumped on […]
