Lord Huron - I Will Wait By the River

this has been getting some radio love in Los Angeles
it's repetitive but sticks with you
Stratosphere baby, stratosphere.  I'm stacked up over La Guardia and I'm not comin' down for nobody.  Not even you.

I've mentioned before my love for the power-pop band Jukebox the Ghost. Well, their new album, Off to the Races, dropped a few weeks ago and . . . yeah, it's owning me right now. When I haven't been actually listening to it, I've had songs rattling around in my head, and I don't mind it. Some of their past songs had distinct Queen influence, and that's definitely the case here, as you can probably guess from the album title itself (cf. A Day at the Races). The opening track, "Jumpstarted," might as well be a long-lost Queen song. Here's that one and a few other new favorites.

Janelle Monae's Dirty Computer isn't as good as The ArchAndroid, but not many things are.  It's still very, very good with "Don't Judge Me" being the big highlight for me so far.

Janelle Monae is the goods. I saw her open for Prince in 2011.

I've been playing Make Me Feel on repeat lately. I'll have to check out the rest of the album.

Props to the Wonder Years latest album Sister Cities. It’s front heavy on songs with hooks, but if you stick around for the rest of the album you will be pleasantly surprised on the second and third listens.

Prince/Monae is a hell of a combo. I've seen both, but not together. I've actually seen Monae twice, and she's a phenomenal showwoman - great singer, great dancer, tons of energy and very interactive with her crowds.

I made a goofy video for a song my friends wrote a while back. Enjoy!

Pretty much because she's my absolute dream girl, and because she's been everywhere I turn lately, I've really been hooked on IU's latest album from last year.  She's just it in my opinion . . .

Just ahead of their debuting it live at the Billboard Music Awards today, this has been bouncing around the bonce for the past couple of days.  That MV cost money!!!  The logistics of setting up a practical collapsing floor for what accounts to 3 seconds of screentime alone . . . Jesus!

Big ol' 70's-flavoured concept album Coheed & Cambria is back!  Can't wait for this.

That’s the best Coheed song since 2007!

Oooooh, big call.  I fucking loved the Afterman double album . . . but I see where you're coming from.  Little bit stoked for this.

Trust me I am a big fan of C&C. I did like the Afterman albums, and The Black Rainbow, but their last album that was free of a concept was totally a let down.

This song is a total stomper. I love it.

Nice to find someone else who actually liked Black Rainbow!  So many great songs on that album (Pearl of The Stars, bitch!).
That last album was . . . I found it much more enjoyable after coming back to it with some distance from all that came before.  I now kinda look at it as a palette cleanser . . . even more so now knowing that what comes next looks huge.

Yeah The Colour Before The Sun might have been something they just needed to get out of their system, or it might have been the result of writer's block. I'm sure it has it's fans, but for me it lacked the heft of their other work.

From The Black Rainbow I like World of Lines, Far, The Broken, and Pearl of the Stars the most.

From what I've heard, The Color Before The Sun was originally intended as a Claudio solo album, such was it's more personal vibe.  But was he worked on it, the rest of the band felt a connection as well and they all used it for a similar catharsis, in a nutshell.  I think you're pretty bang on in that it was something they just needed to get out of their system after so many years of intricate, interweaving progginess.

As for your picks for YOTBR, I believe you and I are of a similar mind, sir.  But I would add This Shattered Symphony.

Really digging this one:

If Prince and Janet Jackson had a love child during the 80s, this song would be it. My daughters introduced me to Monae, and this is the first song of hers that's really dominated my listening.

The video may be considered NSFW, just in case. And there's an F-bomb dropped in the chorus.

Listen loud, and crank up the bass. This is one incredibly catchy song.

So that's why Janelle Monáe's new single sounds so much like Prince

When two of your favourite artists are both known for being wildly unpredictable, and then they do a collab and no one has a fucking clue what to expect . . .

Lee Jin Ah is a strange young woman with a penchant for infusing jazz stylings with an unusual child-like fantasy pop style of her own.  The industry has been telling her for some time now to stop wasting her talent and I guess this is what happens when she decides to meet them halfway.

Keyboard solo is aces.
