"All I talk is money, ho" -- I love how you are playing the intellectual high points of music in 2015. Too bad that's the hip-hop that the money men still push out to the kids while serious minds like Killer Mike go mostly ignored.

This one is cool though. Unlike those A$AP morons, these guys occasionally use words longer than 3 syllables....

@Ike: Killer Mike didn't put anything out in 2015. Run the Jewels 2 was one of my favorite albums of 2014 and nobody played them more than me on this station. i'm sorry you don't like most of rap music but you're completely a hypocrite about this.
  Thu. 1/7/16 10:20am Ike:

OK Chris. That comment was about Pimp C and A$AP not "most of rap music" BTW. But whatever.
Avatar Thu. 1/7/16 10:23am Chris M.:

@Ike: this isn't the first or second time you've complained about me playing a rap song you find dumb or offensive. check out RTJ's Love Again and wake me up when you think you can criticize what i've played.

Heard a lot of good things about this record but have not heard any of it as yet. This is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/7/16 10:26am Cecile:

I think rap has room for both ignorant party jams, and thoughtful work. I wouldn't call Killer Mike ignored by any stretch of the imagination. Also, he has had his very ignorant moments at times.

And one of raps best minds, Kendrick Lamar is the biggest thing since sliced bread. Cream gonna rise to the top.

Italo, sometimes life happens mid-schedule. I would just email Rolling and ask them what's up? 99% that's that happens - they just can't do it for whatever reason.

But if you talk about Drake, well, that guy is horrible and I take back everything I said about cream and party rap being a good thing.

I think Jack Endino deserves a lot of credit for this Windhand record. The style hasn't changed, but he really gives them a new feel. I like the vocals higher in the mix.

Italo Disco Fan - do you listen to Intergalactic Classix on Intergalactic FM? check that out if not...
Avatar    Thu. 1/7/16 10:31am PKNY:

@Polyus - I agree, Dorthia was dialed back too far in the mix on "Soma". I believe they intentionally did that, but I can't for the life of me why you want to bury vocals as good as hers.

And co-sign on her solo album, another good '15 release.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/7/16 11:14am Andrew Waterloo:

Grind core is more punk, bursty, blasty, and usually characterized by shorter songs with less structure. Death Metal is more thrash metal, more focus on longer staccato riffs, guitar solos, more song structure.

I've been told that even Station Manager Ken has said he has to turn the station off sometimes. You're most likely not going to like everything everybody plays. Some people's shows you may choose to skip. My own method is usually to stay tuned--if I'm not digging what's happening at the moment, chances are, I'll hear something I like soon. If you're going to have your taste expanded, you're going to have to hear some stuff that's not right up your alley sometimes. Otherwise, you end up on the classic rock station.

@Blinda: death metal and black metal both evolved primarily from early thrash (black metal also came from much more specific things like 80s satanic metal). grindcore evolved from extreme hardcore punk and took it into metal territory. but they all became distinctly different from each other as musical forms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/7/16 11:23am Andrew Waterloo:

@Blinda-Rednecks are mildly nationalistic, proud of their self-sufficiency, have some kind of marketable skill and are proud of it. Rednecks are often, but not always religious in the Judeo Christian tradition. Han Solo is a redneck.

@Wild Neil: I work from time to time with a wine country attorney and independent wine scholar who traveled to Argentina a year or so ago to sample the Malbecs. He recommended them heartily, too. The main reason I avoid Argentina, Chile, etc., is simply the difficulty of making a choice. There are good, cheap French wines I can rely on. Also, it's the plum quality of many California reds that I've grown tired of.

Gratuitous extremes of IBUs are, of course, part of the marketing plan, but lord, Knee Deep's Simtra, a very bitter triple IPA, is a glorious mouthful.
