Re: Best of the Decade... Share yours!

Yeah, my listening goes down every decade, so it’s a smaller sample. Still, there’s some stuff I liked a lot. Titus Andronicus-The Monitor The War on Drugs-Lost in a Dream Aphex Twin-Syro Lucy Dacus-Historian (she was also great in concert) Sufjan Stevens-Carrie and Lowell Sleigh Bells-Treats PJ Har...

Ha! I just wore my faded GloNo shirt the other day.

Re: New interview with Neil Young

Wow is that packed with a lot of interesting stuff. His archive is intriguingly cheap, subscription-wise, but...not sure I want to go down that rabbit hole. But what in insane amount of energy he has.

ETA: the thought of him trolling people online under a pseudonym is awesome.

Re: Isn't it time for message boards to make a comeback?

Streaming has changed my life, though I only use it to preview albums I might want to buy. We have a big Echo in the living room, so anything that catches my interest gets a few runs before buying. I do still buy, however, because artists don’t make shit on streaming.

Re: Life updates

Oh man, grounded5am, I can’t even imagine. Glad to know you have found someone to talk to about it, but that’s a long, terribly difficult road. Jake, I follow Glono on Twitter, and I’m still listening to new music. I acquire it a little more slowly than I used to, and typically what I do is buy four...

Re: GloNo Recs That Still Get Heavy Rotation

[quote="worpswede"]Nobody but nobody has been able to convince me that TV On The Radio is worth a shit. Ironically, many of the titles that people kept peeing their pants over around here are no longer in the rotation. I'm thinking of Wilco, New Pornographers, Sufjan, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, and-iron...

Grizzly Bear

So I was about to hit the road for a road trip, and dashed into Newbury Comics to buy something from the new-CDs rack, and "Painted Ruins" turned out to be what I grabbed. I'd heard of this band, since first they emerged at the same time as a whole wave of bands with animals in their names, and seco...

Re: Isn't it time for message boards to make a comeback?

I'm semi-active on two message boards (both professional) and nobody knows a damn thing about music. I miss those conversations!

(let's see how long it takes anyone to notice this...)

Re: Entirely new test thread

"Testing. Testing. Is this mic on?" My listening time now: The Mountain Goats/John D have like 30 albums in one form or another, and I'm sort of working myself through those lazily. I did finally see them live and that was terrific, can't recommend it enough if you like to sing along. I've also been...
