    new AFI and Ryan Adams are good for people who already liked their music. doubt they'll do anything to expand fanbases.

    new Krallice is killer for people who like weird black metal shit.

    and that Bowie EP No Plan thingy is neat.

    NIN didn't happen I guess. Probably not included because it and RTJ are 2016 albums.

    these were available in October. They were included in the Lazarus Cast Album as a bonus CD.

    You're right. Someone COULD murder Thissy, drive it to Chicago, and throw his flaccid corpse over the gates of Riot Fest. In that scenario you are correct, Thissy could be seen dead at Riot Fest.

    I listened to Brian Eno's Reflection. Does it get any better the second time around?
    Was that meant as irony, post-irony, sincerity, sarcasm, or sudden realization?

    sincerely think most fans of punk, metal, industrial, etc. would swoon over this Code Orange record. it'll likely end up topping a lot of media lists too (i mean not pitchfork cause they don't cover loud things anymore, but it'll probably be one of the token heavy albums from spin, stereogum, etc.)


    only real new thing i've listened to lately.
    i got ty and cloud from the [] but haven't listened yet. i'm sure i'll enjoy them as i always do.


    is it even worth me trying this new xx album?
    same for brian eno




    edit: looks like p4k did review Code Orange. 7.5. which is about as much as any heavy act that isn't Blut Aus Nord gets from them nowadays so i'll take it.

    I was not a fan of any of their previous stuff, but I actually like their new one. Give it a try at least.
