    Utterly devoid of passion, intensity and sincerity. I hate these lists that pop up all the time. Go pick on some real hacks like Muse.

    Agreed. I agree with some of what was written about some artists, but still fuck these people for taking the time to do this.

    The bands who should be getting exposed are the Linkin Parks of the world.

    It's totally pointless to write things like this about bands like Linkin Park, Godsmack, Disturbed, etc, because you'd only be preaching to the choir.

    I just discovered Spotify Radio for individual artists. It chooses songs related to the artist that you start with, and sometimes does a really decent job. Today I tried to do Boredoms artist radio. It said there were no artists like Boredoms. Spotify gets it.

    Also, I was trying to track down more info on the Weeknd's forthcoming physical release, and was led to Universal Republic's artist roster. What a completely random and incoherent collection of artists. Everyone from Nelly to Godsmack to James Blake to ZZ Top.

    1 and 3. Frank Ocean has the potential for a long and beautiful career, and the Weeknd was really impressive live weekend 2.

    It is a good point that abusing Rihanna has apparently turned into a wise career choice.

    One of the textbooks assigned for a class I teach uses a Pitchfork article from 2001 to demonstrate how to cite a document on a website in MLA style ("Live Transmission" by Marc Hogan, in case you're interested).

    This will probably be deserving of its own thread eventually, as of now it's not officially announced (and I have no information other than what I've seen posted by involved parties online), but the Pixies are currently recording in Wales.

    I thought about making a Record Label Of The Week thread where someone chooses a record label past, present or upcoming to focus on, whoever can do a profile of it, post some favorites, some underappreciated gems, etc., but I think I create enough threads without follow through. Which reminds me, I need to start compiling that new music board mix.

    The idea came just as a new approach for me to discover music. I usually go about band's discogs the normal route, but i thought it would be a fresh angle to actually seek out individual record labels (something I haven't done before) and thus revisit some classics as well as listen to bands and albums that I'm not familiar with.

    I've been getting into a lot of Touch & Go stuff this year - Killdozer, Big Black, Brainiac, Jesus Lizard, etc.

    Matador, as already mentioned, is great of course.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Touch and Go was my favorite label to go thru. They have so many gems in their back catalog. SST is similarly great, and they have some later stuff that you, as a fan of more experimental music as well as 60s rock, would probably enjoy.

    Oh, and Matador is great, but a really fun one to find tons of gems is Homestead, Gerard Cosloy's label prior to Matador.
