Ryan's Weekly Roundup No. 3
Calling it a weekly roundup at this point is a little insulting isn’t it? Oh well whatever. Have fun reading these here horribly mediocre reviews I wrote in 3 minutes. 4 ASAP Rocky Deep Purple (2011) Genre: Hip-hop I was turned onto Mr. Rocky upon seeing the video of “Purple Swag”. The video is great. The song is pretty good too. I really like the music, though the lyrics are...
Mitch's Weekly Roundup No. 4
After a ten day break the BAD BOYS of TUMBLR are back! For me, university finals are approaching dangerously fast and I’m afraid that I just lose track of the days as my sleep schedule winds in and out of the late morning. We’ve also got another roundtable on the way. 4 764-HERO Get Here and Stay (1998) Genre: Indie Rock, Emo Like a more melodic, but less interesting Modest Mouse;...
Mitch's Weekly Roundup No. 3
Hope everybody’s having a good Thanksgiving. Mine’s average. 4 Janelle Monáe The ArchAndroid (2010) Genre: Pop, Soul, etc. Apparently this is some concept album or something but I just can’t really care about the lyrics that much, which is a shame because Monáe is a phenomenal singer and her prescence really dominates this album. I guess that they tell some story about a...
Ryan's Weekly Roundup No. 2
Howdy. Apologies for not posting this last week, but I’m lazy. That’s my excuse. Also this only has 3 albums. Deal with it. 7 Janelle Monáe The ArchAndroid (2010) Genre: Pop, Soul, etc. One day a long, long time ago, I downloaded this album out of complete whim. I had no idea what it was or anything, it just seemed interesting. During the download, I decided to read about it a...
Guest Review | The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles...
One of the things that we do is accept and publish guest reviews; you can literally review any album or EP that you want and submit it at the bottom of the page and we’ll get around to it. This one is by a friend of ours; English isn’t his first language, so forgive a few weirdly structured sentences and enjoy the review! Thanks for submitting, Thomas. Yoshimi Battles the Pink...
Mitch's Weekly Roundup No. 2
Hey everybody, back again and a little bit late. I listened to half of Swans’ Soundtracks for the Blind this week in addition to these albums, so… uh, now you know that. 2 Snowmine Laminate Pet Animal (2011) Genre: Indie Pop Here’s me, listening to Snowmine! ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz… The cover itself is 6/7, and the only reason I picked this up. Indie pop is almost the...
Roundtable Review | Lady Gaga - The Fame
Bet you didn’t see this one coming. Neither did we. Ryan’s Thoughts ARE YOU READY TO VENTURE INTO A MAGICAL WORLD OF FLAWLESS PRODUCTION, AMAZING POP HOOKS, AND “MAD SICK” SYNTHWORK??? Well you’ll want to listen to Goo and The ArchAndroid and The Pleasure Principle. Here’s a review for a Lady Gaga album. I’m fairly high writing this review. Fair...
Ryan's Weekly Roundup No. 1
Hi I’m Ryan. I’m a petty thief and I like corndogs. It’s Wednesday so here’s my weekly roundup! Yee-haw! 6 Various Artists Katamari Suteki Damacy (2007) Genre: Soundtrack, Pop, Drum And Bass, Classical WOW. Where do I begin with this? I’ve been a long time fan of the Katamari Damacy franchise, and from the time when I was a wee lad playing Katamari Damacy I can...
Mitch's Weekly Roundup No. 1
Hey everybody, I’m Mitch, the hopeless plebeian who likes OK Computer. You may know me as Ebola Zaire or carcinoZaire or whatever the hell other nickname I’ve used on various internet locales. If you’d have told me at the beginning of the year that I’d be embarking on this project, I’d have been more than a little skeptical. While I did think of my tastes as mature...
Roundtable Review | My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
Welcome to our first review post and our first Roundtable Review! When Ben said that we would be “reviewin’ some tunes on this bitch,” he was actually being quite serious! This week’s choice is Loveless, the 1991 landmark album from Irish shoegazing quartet My Bloody Valentine. This is an album that we’ve all been listening to for the better part of a year, and...
Hello!! And welcome to the Super Dope Rad ! Gang Music Tunes Reviewing Blog Page, or SDR!GMTRBP for short. We are totally gonna be reviewin’ some tunes on this bitch. Oh god, I can’t believe I just said that. To distract you from the horrible embarrassment of what I just said, I’m going to take the time to explain how things’re gonna go down! We obviously wanna...
