4/28/16: Beyonce, Givers and Takers, Blue October, Anna Meredith

@@@ Beyonce: Sorry (Columbia, 2016).  A friend of mine was wondering why I was spending so much time reviewing Beyonce’s new record.  I told him that almost all of the coverage of Beyonce revolves around her superstar manipulations and very little revolves around her music so a respectable way to take down Beyonce is to talk honestly about her music.  521 more words

4/26/16: Beyonce, Sophie Strauss, Citizen Kay, Night Beats

@@@ Beyonce: Hold Up (Columbia, 2016).  We are doing a song by song review of Beyonce’s new monster shot.  If you’re alive and you’ve been feeding off the intertoobz you know Beyonce been wronged and this record is her working out her bad feelings about Jay Z’s infidelity.  485 more words

4/25/16: Fit for Abuse, Elder, Beyonce, Wood Lake

@@@ Fit for Abuse: Mindless Violence (Armageddon Shop, 2015).  Some old school hardcore dedicated to the War on Terror (my add).  I love the War on Terror, we’re really killing our way to peace, it’s going great!  484 more words

@@@ Peder Mannerfelt: Controlling Body (Peder Mannerfelt, 2016).  Weird ass electro off this week’s Aquarius Records email.  This first tune starts with angel squirts and synth farts.  281 more words

4/22/16: PJ Harvey, Shez Raja, The Aviators

@@@ PJ Harvey: The Hope Six Demolition Project (Vagrant, 2016).  Off this week’s All Music notable release email.  I will give it a chance but this first tune feels a bit forced to my ears.  396 more words

4/21/16: Dirty Fences, Rae Sremmurd, Sturgill Simpson, A$AP Ferg,

@@@ Dirty Fences: Full Tramp (Slovenly, 2015).  Some psych/garage that I got to via a music publicist email.  I’ve often lamented how most music labelled garage punk is probably not garage punk.  426 more words
