Off With Their Heads' new record is being produced by Laura Jane Grace!
But basically if Crime in Stereo doesn't release new music in 2016 I will throw myself into the ocean.
I completely forgot OWTH were recording, which means they will also be touring. Hell yeah. The new one should be cool with Laura producing, but I have ended up loving all of their albums anyways.
And AGREED. They have been kind of quiet, but that makes me think we'll see something this year.
I also just read that the Ghostface Killah/MF Doom album is supposed to be out this year, but I think they have said that every year since 2010. I just want the damn thing, the couple tracks that have got out are amazing.
That new Kanye song he released on New Year's Eve is so fucking awful, I hope it's not an indicator of the rest of the album
I don't think it will be, it looks like he is doing a GOOD Friday type of thing again. Facts was fun, but not great. Now he just dropped Real Friends and No More Parties in LA (that fuckin Madlib beat and FUCKING KENDRICK), which I dig a lot more. Plz give us Cruel Summer 2 and SWISH.
Edit: haha, release date is 2/11. Glad there isn't too long of a wait.

Rihanna's new album was free and some of the last songs make me wish Rihanna became a straight up soul/blues singer! So good. Definitely not the dance-y Rihanna I like, but still pretty good if you're in the right mood.
the kanye hype is getting to me. looks like a ton of the following are going to be on the album based on the notepad that keeps being posted and the songs and snippets out and about: Earl Sweatshirt, Chance the Rapper, A$AP Rocky, Puff Daddy, Kid Cudi, 2 Chainz, Ty Dolla $ign, Sia, Vic Mensa, Kendrick Lamar, The-Dream, Tyler the Creator, Cyhi da Prince, Young Thug, Fonzworth Bentley, Rakim and Andre 3000.
like... at LEAST 3/4 of those are going to make the final album and that's still just insane. even if they don't show up, it looks like he's making this similar to MBDTF and getting input from a ton of people.

Also just gave Bloc Party's new album a listen. It's appropriately titled, Hymns. It's very gospel-y. Boring and no hooks. Oh well, Oh well, I can't imagine anything ever topping Silent Alarm. Way to set the bar way too high guys.
I feel the same way about the new Bloc Party, Aaron, I wasn't expecting it to be so... flat. Kinda disappointed. :/
Listening to the new Say Anything right now and I was not expecting this at all hahaha. I just got past Goshua and these rap parts are cracking me up, but i am digging it. So Numb is a really damn good song though. I just fucking love Max.
Edit: Princess starts out like a Touche Amore song almost, but oh my god these lyrics hahahaha. So far this has been a really interesting mix of styles.
Would you spit in Little Lucy’s face Because she watches the movie Frozen And she wants to be a princess Even though Disney employs nearly genocidal business practices?
So, given The Life Of Pablo (or at least the unfinished version) about a week to digest now. Overall, I have to say I love it. The production is on point, the features are great (Chance the Rapper's verse is phenomenal and Desiigner was damn impressive on both features. Also, only Kanye would get Andre 3000 on a track to sing two words) and the energy of the album is infectious. It honestly sounds like a mix of his albums all in one, I keep hearing little callbacks here and there that make me super happy. Now, the cons are some of the lyrics (although I do find the first lines of Father Stretch My Hands Pt 1 hilarious now) and the album feels a bit haphazard at times. Oh and I am a bit salty that Vic Mensa and Sia got cut from Wolves, but it was nice to hear Frank Ocean. The whole rollout was a shitshow, but i think it was worth the wait.
