-A poem by Puke.
Check these out asap pls.
In the interest of furthering an illusion of literature, each album will be paired with an excellent poem by myself.
1. Alegranza by El Guincho.
"Raving tropical birds
Attacking my spirit in spanish
A retort, I know not, except:
2. Outside the Box by Skream
And then, unexpectedly,
"My parents are deeeeeead-"
3. Crush by Abe Vigoda
"This glitter tastes like salt
Let's marry a bomb
4. Crooks and Lovers by Mount Kimbie
"Gentle and meticulous
The web of the ocean
Bus to bus to boat
5. Halcyon Digest by Deerhunter.
"Dear Bradford Cox,
Would I be happier without you
Singing sad songs?
I would not."

So Gang Gang Dance is potentially my new fave band. And by ‘fave’ I mean 2nd fave ‘cause NO CUNT could ever topple AnCo.
Anyway they’ve got a bitchin lead singer even if she’s a bit uggo and they named their most recent album after some religious shit I don’t even know about but yeh
Lizzie from Gang Gang Dance: Bit Uggo, Misses Aaliyah :(
Hope 'Oh shit, Gang Gang!' becomes a meme.
Hope our thousands of readers 'appreciate' Gang Gang Dance.

BUT BE ASSURED IN UNREST"
I hope y'all like that Why? album called Alopecia. as seen here ---->
It's pretty damn good and don't fear, the rest of Yoni Wolf's lyrics are as good as that line up thurrr.
IF I REMAIN LOST AND DIE ON A CROSS AT LEAST I WASN'T BORN IN A MANGERRR
Lately I've been listening to a lot of the following
- Aaliyah's album "One in a Million."
- The-Dream's album "Love Hate."
- Jimmy Eat World's "Stay on my Side Tonight" EP.
- Sunset Rubdown and Grouper in general.
Because I was once a teenage boy, I really like Jimmy Eat World. I think this particular EP I have listed is my favourite thing they have done. I'm not sure on the specifics of it, but I believe it came after the relatively bad "Futures" album but before the relatively OK "Chase This Light" album? I often wonder if the depresso songs that run the tracklist feature songtitles stolen from bands that are "totally goth." (Disintegration - The Cure, Over - Portishead, Closer - NIN???)
If you like generic American pop rock, YOU MIGHT LIKE THIS.
"we r totally ~maturing~ our sound. u can tell because we put a girl with a cigarette on the cover LOL and make sure yr parents kno u r getting this pls ~PARENTAL ADVISORY~" - Jimmy Eat World.
As for no. 4 on the list, I listen to Sunset Rubdown and Grouper alll the time anyway. Snoooooozer.
So, ummm. Here MASSIVE ATTACK by NICKI MINAJ which is one of the best things I've seen/heard since that Ciara video/song WORK.
Sometimes I really like pop music y'all!
p.s. lol at Nicki Minaj's face in the frame youtube decided to provide for the preview
