I’ve had some pretty grandiose plans in the staff forum concerning what I’d do with this column I kind of want to setup. Then I put it on the backburner because I was moving then I put the backburner on another, much deeper backburner because the semester started, and eventually here we are. About, what, two or three months into this little blog and people have put together some 26 mixtapes? I haven’t made one post. I’m the most inconsistent reviewer this site has. I like titles, but that isn’t a good one. I also like music. While I jest and make fun of Dennis music (he likes Pitchfork-esque bands), it’s all fun and games (read: I really am not into those bands but Dennis is good people), I really have no room to talk. I’m a bigger hype machine than hipster Dennis here, as I’m into hype music like crazy. So what are the current vibes I’ve got off the interweb?

What’s Not Good

Anberlin is releasing a new CD and to frank, I wish this band wasn’t so terrible, because I’d love to get into them. But the guy’s voice is just so damn terrible. I don’t understand the phenomena that is this band. After hearing some tracks off this album, the vocals continue to be the opposite of pretty and continue to be something I will never ever purchase.

The Morning Light is also putting out an album, but more importantly, this:

What failure looks like

I’m a nitpicker and as I already didn’t like this atrocious band, I will now mock their label for allowing fail ads like this to be released. Someone better get fired, stat.

What’s Good

The Reign of Kindo is probably the most amazing thing to happen to music this year. I love This Day & Age but if I had known that them breaking up would allow musical beauty like this to emerge, then I would have called for their disbanding years ago. Rhythm, Chord & Melody is one of the best albums to be released this, search the database for this band.

Forgive Durden’s creative mastermind Thomas Dutton spent nearly two years devising a plot for a musical and has created what sounds to be another amazing album. Razia’s Shadow is wildly inventive and though, it will be strange how it plays out say live, I’d like to see where else this goes. Rumor has it, he is in talks concerning movie rights.

 Jack’s Mannequin is back with a new album, The Glass Passenger, and it’s good. Really good. That’s all.

This wasn’t as good as I had anticipated. Maybe next week, I’ll get political.

    Thanks for the dig. But I like so much more than some “pitchfork” bands and a lot of bands that said website likes, I abhor. I like bands that Kerang likes. I like bands that Absolute Punk likes. I like bands that Billboard likes. I like bands that No Depression likes. Difference between you and me, kid, is that I’m all over the map. While you are sitting there liking two bands, I’m like 22. No worries though, I remember when music actually was the formulation of my life. Now, it’s just music. I try and find good music, good to me anyway. Did you read my Sing It Loud review? Yup, like to see Pitchfork review that one.

    Thanks for the introduction to Reign Of Kindo. It’s one of the bands you have “hyped” on the site that I actually don’t mind.

    It was just a joke. I’m everywhere. =/ Billboard likes Britney Spears and Hinder bad example

    Didn’t say I like it all. Billboard likes Kings of Leon. I like what I like.
