Can I nominate Cardi B as the worst thing I have ever heard in my life?

Greta Van Fleet is right up there with the Joanna Newsom outputs and The Monitor (which is really a 00's album at it's heart) as my favorite of the decade.

Every song is consistently awesome.

I remembered there was a new Morrissey album. Now I wish I didn't. It's pretty boring, as Morrissey and Marr often are without each other.

Couldn't really get into Greta Van Fleet, ultimately just too derivative to truly enjoy. Same problem I had with Tame Impala.

You know what, I never really got into Joanna Newsom. I listened to Ys once maybe five or six years ago and it was too foofy.

I'd probably like the New Pornographers' CD more if I didn't have Electric Version, Twin Cinema or Challengers to compare it to. The set a very high standard with those releases.

I listened to less new music this year than I have in many years. I liked the new Father John Misty the most and also enjoyed the new
War on Drugs and Fleet Foxes. Bagels, thanks for letting me know Feist had a new one out. I am giving it a spin now.

Father John was in town not long ago....was teaching (and am way too old) that night, so couldn't go....but he's got a following here. We should see him next time he comes.

I'd love to see him live. I listen to music on YouTube almost all day and came across a live concert from Pitchfork of one of his shows. It is a good
listen if you are working on something and want to have something on in the background.
