Like a person, I from time to time enjoy listening to music in my car on my way to work. Most times I’ll listen to music on my way home from work, too. My car has a specially designed plug that plugs directly into my iPod, and I can choose whatever song I want, at my leisure, without paying any reverence or mind to the road in front of me, which is a metaphor for my entire life.
Today marks the culmination of the most fruitful and jubilant month in the history of recorded music. Within a calendar’s page turn my iPod has received albums from Panda Bear, TV on the Radio, Fleet Foxes, [Tyler, The Creator], and The Antlers, and though I’m only 34 listens into the necessary 100 listens I’m going to require to determine if Tomboy justifies my entirely justified tattoo, I do feel up for shedding critical light on the non-tattooed-on-me and equally fantastic albums that came out.
WEEK SHAKES OUT:
Today (Tuesday May 10th): I try Nine Types of Light by TV on the Radio
Tomorrow (Wednesday May 11th): I try Helplessness Blues by Fleet Foxes
The Day After Tomorrow (Thursday May 12): I try Goblin by Tyler, The Creator
The Day After The Day After Tomorrow (Friday May 13th): I try Burst Apart by The Antlers
Furthering the legend of 4/12/11-5/10/11, Twin Shadow gave the most well-coiffured performance in the history of late night television. Someone owns his hair.
