Best of 2015 Part 3

On to day 3 and so far I'm only regretting one selection, but it's a minor issue of ordering so that's pretty good. I'm sure I'll find some albums early in 2016 that I complete missed from this year that will scream "I should have been there!" but them's the breaks. Times are busy so let's get back to what we're here for.

#15
Jamie xx
In Colour


I really just want to call this guy Jamie Smith, because that's what his name is and the 'xx' part is stupid. Anyway I was surprised by this album. I didn't think I would be into it at all, but after a couple listens I was pretty impressed. Not really sure what I expected.

Like his old music with 'The xx', this album has a layered, ethereal sound that's progressive, but in a measured way. He uses space well, with minimal foreground dripped on top of sweeping atmosphere. Only a couple tracks feature any meaningful lyrics, which isn't bad by any means. My least favorite track is the most mainstream one featuring Young Thug. I don't really hear any classic singles, but it works as a collection from front to back.

Gosh


Sleep Sound


Loud Places


#14
Uffe
Radio Days


Uffe Christensen is a Danish electronic producer who has only done singles up until now. In his first full-length album he's done a commendable job of putting together catchy beats and blending them into a cohesive construct. Nothing feels out of place.

His sound is glitchy, minimalist, and eclectic. There are moments of late night deep tech house, bouncy UK garage grooves, downtempo trip-hop, and just a whole whack of varied sounds mashed together. It reminds me of slightly more subdued Siriusmo, another spastic producer who has featured on these charts before. Do yourself a favour and check this one out.

I Can Show You High


Lemon Nights


Die For You


#13
John Tejada
Signs Under Test


Another ethereal album, awash in reverb but more pulsing than Jamie xx. This one is purely instrumental. I think the best description is late night trance tech. This latest album from the Austrian producer isn't overly emotive, it just kind of expands through stillness.

Some really interesting synth choices really help accentuate the melodic lines in between frazzled fringe percussion. There's a lot of care taken to use air to give a delicate sense of changing pressure, as if the music were going for a deep sea dive down a tunnel. Probably not for those who aren't intently into electronic music, but I found it captivating.

Two 0 One


Beacht


Meadow


EP #5
Møme
Cosmopolitan


This is Jérémy Souillart. He's French, but he lives in Australia. Interesting decision. He makes what I guess you'd call chillwave, or maybe chillstep? I dunno. Genres are so often lost on me now, not that they're important. Gender, genre, seems to be a theme there. Anyway I digress. This is great collection of five tracks, including a booming psychedelic house track at the end. Two thumbs way up.

Cyclope


Hangover


Cosmopolitan


Tomorrow we tickle the toes of the top 10.

Best of 2015 Part 2

These last days of the year always seem to fly by, even more so than the rest. Could be the constant eating, drinking, and all the writing... or maybe my internal clock is just scrambled beyond repair, Whatever it is, we've got three more album to look at, so let's hop to it.

#18
Iris
Liquid Sunshine


There aren't too many prominent female hip-hop producers on the scene these days. That fact doesn't actually earn her any bonus points, just throwing it out there. I have no idea what her real name is (maybe it's Iris), and again, it doesn't matter. Her beats are dope.

In the past I've championed the likes of Brock Berrigan, Apollo Brown, and Wax Tailor, This is something similar, sample based with elements of the funk soul brother tied together with crispy drum tracks. There are some great sounds on this one, I highly recommend it if you're into instrumental hip-hop. Pick it up online here!

Seoul Soul


Azoto Rain


Bustability


#17
Laszlo
Cartoon Hero


Another 80's inspired album, this time from Aaron Wheeler, a disco producer often found on the Monstercat label. The majority of his work seems to be electro-dance stuff that doesn't really appeal to me, but he clearly has some talent and versatility as he shows here. That might sound strange considering this isn't far off electro, but there is actually quite a range of interesting sounds jammed together on this album.

It's a proper concept album, an audio tribute to the great cartoon heroes we used to watch as kids. It's definitely not for dancing, with eclectic grooves and quick transitions, Elements of dubstep, electro, synth pop are all there. It's a great listen, lots of fun for the kids, and at 38 minutes not too taxing on the brain.

What Did We Learn Today Kids?


Cartoon Hero


Supermassive


#16
Owiny Sigoma Band
Nyanza


It's been a while since these crazies have graced the blog, four years since they checked in around the same spot on my 'Best of 2011' chart. This album isn't quite as good as their self-titled debut, it's a bit faster and heavier rhythmically, but it's still very injoyable.

There are times when this album feels very techy. Thumping tribal Kenyan house music of sorts. Most of the vocals are heavily processed to give it a dub feel. Reverb and delay are applied liberally. If I have a complaint it's that the pacing of the song order is a little off. Some re-organization might have gone a ways to fixing that, but that doesn't take away from the quality of some serious jams.

I Made You, You Made Me


Changaa


Luo Land


EP #6
Foreign Fields
What I Kept In Hiding


These guys are really good, but they're also really boring. Kind of like the Mumford & Sons of indie folk but half the speed. It's like they only have one tempo, and one way to write songs. What they do, though, they do very well. Their sound is great, they're polished live, but man.. branch out a little gentlemen. Don't get me wrong. This EP is excellent, and the format suits them perfectly. I'd just like to see something different from some obviously talented individuals. 

I Have Your Weapons


In Hiding


Subtle Weight


Part 3 ahead, with some experimental sounds.

Best of 2015 Part 1

Holy it's Christmas Day. That means it's time to start my 6th annual 'Best of" list, 21 albums that grabbed my attention this year. I have to say it hasn't been the greatest year music-wise, for me anyway. I've heard varied opinions, as one does in the subjective arts business, but I felt that while there were a lot of 'interesting' albums, not many really grabbed hold of me like in years gone by. Just one of those years? Could be.

Only two repeat 'champions' find their way into the reckoning this year, and many of these artists were entirely new to me. That's a good thing, I suppose. In case you're wondering who made it in the past five years, you can check them out here:



                                   Best of 2011


                                                                                                                   Best of 2013


Actually I should add that this year could be described as 'year of the EP'. I had serious trouble trying to narrow it down to only seven, there are plenty of contenders that have missed out that on another day could easily have sneaked in. On the LP side, not so much. The top half of the table is pretty solid, the bottom a bit here and there.

Let's get stuck in, shall we?

#21
Sufjan Stevens
Carrie & Lowell


Let me preface this by saying that I'm not really a Sufjan Stevens fan. Not a great way to start an appraisal is it? He's flighty, often limited in scope, and just doesn't really grip me all the time. I really enjoyed his Illinois album, but otherwise found him very hit and miss.

This offering isn't a masterpiece. It's still whispy yet it has a certain weight to it, both lyrically and harmonically, that makes it stick out from other indie folk albums this year. It's sparse and droning, with just enough instrumentation in the background to keep its momentum creeping forward. For what it is, it's a solid effort from an unusual fellow.

Death With Dignity


Should Have Known Better


Carrie & Lowell


#20
Timecop 1983
Reflections


This one is unapologetically one dimensional 80's synth wave, and it's juicy. I guess the name might have given that away. Jordy Leenaerts is the man behind the brand, and he's created some serious throwback tunes. Nearly every track on this album sounds like it could have been a one hit wonder about 30 years ago. 

If you're not into epic cheesy synth ballads, don't even bother with this one. If you're like me and enjoy some dreamy synthesizer accompanied by a drum machine, dive right in. This won't make any best-of-the-decade lists, not even close. It's still a fun album, which just so happens to be good enough in a bit of an off year.

New Horizons


Lost Without You


My First Crush


#19
Humans
Noontide


This is a new band for me, who I actually discovered from a shirt that Shamos was wearing. He said I might like them, and hey, I do. Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq are from Vancouver, and they play with lots of buttons and dials and vocoders and such, it's pretty cool. Reminds me of a heavier Caribou, or a more conventional take on The Knife.

Like the others, this album isn't a grand slam for me, but it's getting better with each listen and there are some undeniably catchy beats that reach out amidst the sludgier sounds. 'Ennio' has a relatively mainstream sound, while 'Cold Soba' is glitchy and washed out. It makes for an intense hour of listening. I haven't delved too deeply into their older stuff, but based on this I've got some catching up to do.

Tell Me


EP #7
Zero 7
EP3


My first EP selection has a terrible name. In case you haven't noticed it's a pet peeve of mine. Anyway we won't let that get in the way of the great tunes on it, four originals and one remix. Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker have put together a terrific little release with some great vocalists like José González and newcomer Danny Pratt, whose style is very similar to Sampha of SBTRKT fame. The opening track, '400 Blows', is one of my favorites of the year. I can't for the life of me understand how it doesn't have a video! 

Last Light


The Colour Of Spring


400 Blows


Tomorrow, part 2!

Thursday, December 24, 2015

Journey - Don't Stop Believin'

Speaking of epic. The best live version out there.

Gowan - Moonlight Desires

More '80s epicness. This version is from '94.



Styx - Come Sail Away

Last Throwback Thursday of the year. Let's make it a good one. I've posted this before, but it was the studio version. This is a killer live performance from Dennis DeYoung.

Wednesday, December 23, 2015

Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Multi-Love

This album didn't make my best-of list, but it's worth checking out.

Silversun Pickups - Lazy Eye

Almost there! My 'Best of 2015' countdown starts on Friday. Just one more day after today! I hear these guys have a new album. Haven't checked it out yet. This is a goodie.

Monday, December 21, 2015

Sunday, December 20, 2015

The Cancel - Summer Tape

It was cold out today. Hurry summer, come back. We miss you. 

Sandpeople - Roll Call

Went and saw Star Wars tonight. It was good. Not great, certainly has its story limitations, but I won't spoil them for ya. Check it out yourself, but first check this.

Saturday, December 19, 2015

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

Charles Bradley - Changes

Black Sabbath cover? In soul? I'll take one please.

Erlend Øye - Garota

I'm not sure I gave this album enough credit last year. Defo worth a few listens.

Monday, December 14, 2015

Periphery - Stranger Things

Over 30 straight days I've had this updated now. Let's shoot for a new record. I don't actually know what the record is, so I'll have to go back and take a look. Amazingly we're very quickly approaching the end of the year, which of course means we're close to my 'Best of 2015' list. Exciting and scary at the same time, because I've still got a lot of listening to do and then I've got to sort out my rankings, which are very, very loose at the moment. Will I make it in time? Stranger things have happened.

Animals As Leaders - Physical Education

Metal Monday. It's happening. Let's be progressive today.

Sunday, December 13, 2015

The Dank All-Stars - Rental Love

This is a great cover of Lake Street Dive.

Mantler - I've Been Destroyed

Well we had our little disco party yesterday, so let's cool it down today. Remember this dude? He now goes by Marker Starling. Personally like Mantler better.

Saturday, December 12, 2015

Roy Davis Jr. - Boiler Room London

One song isn't enough. We need an hour of soulful funky house beats to get us ready to boogie. As it happens, I have just the thing.

Phil Fuldner - Get Down

It's Saturday. We need big-ass beats.

Friday, December 11, 2015

U.S. Girls - Window Shades

Strangely, this sounds more like it.

Wild Belle - Giving Up On You

Well this doesn't sound much like their older stuff. Not sure what to think.

Thursday, December 10, 2015

Yukon Blonde - I Wanna Be Your Man

More like Kelowna Brunette.

Coheed & Cambria - Here To Mars

I have no idea how this didn't come to my head two days ago. Embarrassing. Anyway, am I the only one who thinks that lyric videos have been done to death? This video would actually be pretty cool without the damn letters flying across the screen.

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Tears For Fears - Everybody Wants To Rule The World

Something more uplifting. One of my all-time favorite songs.

The whole performance is brilliant.

Nils Frahm - Re

Here's some spacey piano to help you think about that last video.

Why We Should Go To Mars

This. A thousand times this. Tell 'em what's what Dr. Zubrin.

Monday, December 7, 2015

KEN Mode - Blessed

Proper. Angry. Loud. Hardcore. Metal.

Deftones - Digital Bath

It's Monday... right? Yup, confirmed. It's Monday. Let's do metal. Surprised I haven't posted anything by these cats in ages, but then the new album isn't coming until early 2016. Really looking forward to it. This is one of my favs.

Sunday, December 6, 2015

Incubus - Absolution Calling

To be honest I complete forgot that there was a new(ish) EP out. Oops.

The Icarus Line - El Sereno

So I was trying to figure out why the YouTube videos didn't have the player controls anymore in my embeds. Turns out I've been putting in the wrong code since August. Oops. I went back and fixed it. What a dummy. I think the blog could use a facelift. I'll start thinking about that. Maybe it'll get one for Christmas. I like this video. Cool concept.

Saturday, December 5, 2015

Friday, December 4, 2015

Stone Temple Pilots - Interstate Love Song

This one too. Such a great tune.

Velvet Revolver - Fall To Pieces

Scott Weiland is gone. It's not a surprise, was just a matter of time. Still sad. One of my favorite performers in the grunge days. Let's sing him out.

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Postmodern Jukebox - Viva La Vida

By Jove, Scott Bradlee and Puddles have done it again. I much prefer this to the original.

Tom Waits - All The World Is Green

Back again. A bit (a lot) earlier today. I feel we should do some more relaxing before the weekend arrives, because that looks like it could be hectic. No reason really, but it's December which invariably means mayhem 24/7. I'm looking forward to March.


Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Robert T - Cirrus

Running a little late today. Here's a really cool live performance on a whole whack of funky blip and bloop machines. Throw on your headphones and give it a whirl.

Monday, November 30, 2015

Psy - Daddy

I'll be honest, I haven't even listened to either one of these songs yet. I just skimmed through the videos on mute for like 30 seconds and thought "what the hell". I'm guessing they're both terrible, but the action is just too ridiculous to pass up.

Psy - Napal Baji

I wonder if those older fellas had any idea what music would be like in 2015.

Sunday, November 29, 2015

Michael Chapman - Trains

Now we need some guitar. This chap's a mere 73. I should start practicing.

Wally Krauss - It Might As Well Be Spring

It's an old-timey kind of day. Wally's 89 here. Here he is at 93. Still got it.


Saturday, November 28, 2015

Dan Mangan & Blacksmith - Vessel

Not sure how I feel about this album. It's different. Some strong parts, some less so. Overall, not bad. Potential there for more collaboration in the future. Cool video anyway.

Hayden - Bad As They Seem

Kind of slightly sour about this one. Really wanted to post 'Trees Lounge' but for some dumb reason Hardwood Records doesn't want me to share their video with the world. Whatevs. Check out the link anyway. And watch this one too. Weirdos.

Seven Mary Three - Water's Edge

Only one yesterday, so let's make it a triple today. This one goes out to J-Ryze.

Friday, November 27, 2015

Thursday, November 26, 2015

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Stick In The Wheel - Champion

Keepin' it simple. Great little tune.

Junkhouse - Burned Out Car

Not sure why but I had this song in my head today. Tom Wilson is a massively underrated song writer. That's Sarah McLachlan on the backing vocals too.

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Clutch - X-Ray Visions

Pretty excited to hear the new album. These guys kick ass.

Pearl Jam & Neil Young - Rockin' In The Free World

I'm running a little late today but I've just about made it! This might not be the best rendition of this song in existence, but it's pretty frickin' epic. 67 years young and the old fella's still given 'er. I also love the video concept. Bet all those videographers were wishing they were rockin out instead though.

Monday, November 23, 2015

Sunday, November 22, 2015

Hiatus Kaiyote - Breathing Underwater

I did not know this existed before now. I KNOW.

Caribou - Back Home


Right. Looks like I'm back in a bit of a rhythm. Pretty similar to the music scene in 2015 I think. Slow start, but there's been some solid releases in the final quarter. Better late than never? Let's pick up the tempo slightly. Two songs a day for the next week?

Sounds like a plan, Stan.


Saturday, November 21, 2015

Kill Chicago - The Grey

Live at the Recordery. This is Brad Perry and Evan Hanson's new spot. Groovy.

Friday, November 20, 2015

David Bowie - Blackstar

New album out in January. This is the first track. It's out there. Can't wait to hear more.

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Cake - The Distance

Not sure why, but I really want some cake today.

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

The Tea Party - The Ocean At The End

Heard these guys were putting out a new album, and then somehow it completely passed me by. Seems like it did the same to most people. It's pretty decent actually, not as strong as their early stuff but to be fair it's hard to live up to perfection. This one is obviously very Pink Floyd. That's not a bad thing by any means.

andhim - Spayce

News from Paris is terrible. This post is just a brief distraction.

Thursday, November 12, 2015

Missy Elliott - WTF

WTF? She's still alive? Ain't quite a classic, but it'll do.

Wednesday, November 11, 2015

Ian Thornley - Secrets

Aw, heck. This is a music blog. Here's some great music.

The Fallen of World War II

I'm back from a long sojourn and a week's recovery. Gotta make up for lost time. First, a little history lesson. Because it's that day.

Friday, October 2, 2015

Humans - Ennio

These guys are new to me. Thanks Shamos. I like this video.

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Kill Chicago - Count To Ten

So it's been a while... but for good reason. I've been busy as hell. Tomorrow I fly to the UK - for a month. That will also be busy... but I'm feeling like I should get back into the swing of things, so I'll do my best. The unannounced sabbatical is over. Freddy Beach reprazent.

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

John C. Reilly & Friends - Tiny Desk Concert

Old timey music!

1. It`s Never Too Late
2. Wayward Traveler
3. Rock Of Ages
4. Blues Stay Away From Me

The Hateful Eight - Trailer

Newest Tarantino flick. Awww yissss.

Thursday, July 30, 2015

Super Flu - Ooooooh

I've been busy as hell this month, hence the crappy posting schedule. Oh well. I'm off on the road for another week starting tomorrow, but might be able to fit a few chunes in. I hope so. I was gonna post another song but then I found out I'd already posted it, so ya. I guess these things happen when You've been posting stuff for five freakin' years. Soooo.... here's this groovy little number instead.

Thursday, July 23, 2015

Hawksley Workman - We Will Still Need A Song

Busy busy busy busy busy. I posted the original video for this song almost five years ago, but this is such a great live version I thought it deserved a re-post. 

DayMan vs NightMan

This soundtrack is perfect.

Monday, July 13, 2015

Timecop 1983 - Secrets

Just got this album. Haven't listened to it yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I put the space back in the name though, because it looks dumb without it. 

Suicide Squad Trailer

So I don't really know anything about this movie. I read a few comics when I was young, but never any of these ones. Looks like it might not be terrible.

Friday, July 10, 2015

Laszlo - Cartoon Hero

Ask and ye shall receive! Ellen Pao has stepped down! Terrific. World changing? No. I won't jump back on the bandwagon yet, but it's a step in the right direction. Let's celebrate with some synth pop. The fizzy kind.

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

Coheed & Cambria - You Got Spirit, Kid

Cheer up old bean. Life goes on without Deaddit. This will work. New Coheed album coming out October 9!!! That is faaaantastic news. Here's the first track made public!

Friday, July 3, 2015

James - Ring The Bells

Today is a sad day. It's sad because I'm quitting Reddit. That seems strange, but it's the truth. Reddit has been a terrific source of crazy content, and a great way to waste time. It's a cesspool of the best and worst of humanity all wrapped into one. Beneath its many layers there is a tremendous community of knowledgeable people on literally any topic, and its AMA's are the stuff of legend.

Sadly, in recent months it's become increasingly apparent that censorship and commercialization have become a priority rather that its constituents, the ones to make the site what it is. Whether that has to do with the appointment of Ellen Pao as CEO or perhaps in concert with executive Alexis Ohanian is hard to say, but there's an uncanny correlation between the timing of that event and Reddit's descent into corporatism. 

The firing of Victoria Taylor, the long-time admin of AMA and, by all accounts, a terrific human being, is the final straw for me. A number of 'subreddits' have returned to 'full service' but I will not follow. I will not support the crumbling of democracy in pursuit of the almighty dollar.

I am not a billionaire, or a celebrity, or an executive, just an average card-carrying citizen of the world. My only trump card is my vote. If we, as humans, abdicate our responsibility to speak out and act against those we feel have wronged, we're just another cog in the soul-sucking machine. 

Is this an overreaction? It's just a stupid website. Maybe, but it seems to me more of a trend. If anyone has a legitimate alternative to reddit I will consider jumping on-board, but otherwise this is a sad end for me. I'm only one, and nobody will notice, but there it is.

What a shame.

Thursday, July 2, 2015

Ronald Jenkees - Try The Bass

Hello YouTubes!!! It's been 2.5 years... so excited to see he's back!

Monday, June 29, 2015

Keith Hallett - Cattle Call

I had to drop out of Folly Fest this year. That sucked. Was really looking forward to jamming with everyone and seeing some great fellas on stage. Keith was there. I'm sure it was great. Next year I'm going to Folly damnit.

Serj Tankian & Khatchadour Tankian - Bari Arakeel

SoaD's lead singer with his dad singing an Armenian choon. Pretty cool.



Miguel Rivera - Beat It

This guy is awesome. Was gonna post a different song, but this one is the best quality.

Al Murray's British History Lesson

I listened to Keith's song, got sick and nearly died. No, not really, but I've been bloody busy, hence the break. I'm still a work in progress. Here's a few laughs, then a few choons.

Thursday, June 18, 2015

Keith Hallett - Take Sick And Die

This has nothing to do with Nina except that it's also awesome.

Zebra Katz & Leila - Nine Simone

...and some new song apparently inspired by her. Not sure.

Nina Simone - Mississippi Goddam

From her Live in Holland show, 1965. Watch it here.

New Horizons - Voyage to Pluto

We're damn close. Unreal. Bring it on galaxy!

Serious mango cutting skills

Watch it to the end. Trust me.

John Oliver drinks Bud

The man follows through. Although those 'bites' were more like nibbles. Close enough.

Apologies for the potato quality. Apparently it's the best we can do.



The Colbeard

Colbert's gettin' ready for his big move.

Ed Skrein - Reach Skrein

I'm still suffering trauma from Game of Thrones. Not so much what happened in the episode, I've read the books so I was mostly expecting it. But it's over. Again. Damnit. What to do on Sunday nights now? Here's the old Daario Naharis doing some rapping. I don't like the new Daario. He has no charisma. I wonder how long he'll last riding around with El Jorah Mormonto.

Friday, June 12, 2015

Jake The Dog - Bacon Pancakes

I've been away, then I got sick. I never get sick. Must be old age. Anyway, I guess I owe you about 10 hours of music. So... here ya go.

Wednesday, June 3, 2015

José González - Tony Desk Concert

Great suggestion Jenna. This is lovely.

Lifelike - So Electric

It was nice out today and I got too much sun. I'll take it. Better than freezing. It's been years since I've posted anything Laurent Heinrich. Which is really a tragedy, because I'm a big fan of his work. Let's boogie down to some quality French disco. 

Friday, May 29, 2015

Metallica - The Call Of Ktulu

I wasn't going to post anything because I thought Kung Fury deserved another day in the sun but what the heck, have some classic Metallica. The silent film is actually from 2005, made to look dated, and pretty cool. Now go watch Kung Fury again.

Luke Abbott - Amphis

A bit of the mad scientist vibe going on here. I enjoy his work, but do wonder if it's a bit excessively self indulgent at times. That said I'm not really sure where to draw the line. How many knobs and patches is ok before it's over the top? 10? 20? 50?

Sunday, May 24, 2015

Vulfpeck - Poinciana

This is wacky and weird and wonderful.

Chandelier - Nation Promo

This is Aaron Collier, of Jimmy Swift Band and Scientists of Sound fame. It's his latest project, and it looks dope as hell. Hope to be able to check it out soon.

Stannis the Mannis

And let's not forget the Mannis.

Peter Dinklage - Still Going Strong

It's almost time for another episode of Game of Thrones. Let's hope it's better than last week. At least we can still count on the Dinkles.

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Röyksopp - Vision One

Another fan made video, using footage from Baraka. Pretty cool.

Mr. Oizo - Mass Doom

Pretty much the most official "unofficial" video I've ever seen. Pay this man.

The Dad Bod Is Worse Than Ebola

Not always into the BroScience, but this is a beauty.

Scuba - Why You Feel So Low

Technoooooo..... the new album is real good. WARNING: Flashy lights ahead!

Uffe - Valentines Card

Ok, since you asked nicely. Here's some chunes.

The Tesla Powerwall

Goddamnit Elon Musk, you've done it again. If he moves to Mars, I'm going with him. But wait, isn't this Saturday? Shouldn't I be posting music? Maybe later. Watch this first.
