Wasn't feeling it I guess.

I downloaded After Dark 2 and Chvrches. I'm generally not into Electronic music, but these are changing my mind.

I know everyone is on about Lady Gaga, Smiley Virus, Katy Perry, or anything else that is considered dangerous pop. Yet, none of these ladies have anything on Sky Ferreira as her album is just fucking amazing.

I would recommend listening to the song "24 Hours" which is right now, my favorite song of the year.

She had a single like a year ago that was pretty great. Haven't been able to listen to the album in full yet but seems decent.

Still need to check out the MIA album. She's not such a big priority as she once was for me.

I've heard the MIA album and I need another listen though it's a big improvement over the last one she did.

I don't like the Haim album at all. I don't understand the hype that surrounds them. I really don't.

I tried to stay away from HAIM because their whole schtick kind of gives me secondhand embarrassment, but I couldn't resist. I've had Days Are Gone on repeat since it leaked.

New M.I.A. was a nice surprise, but perhaps just in comparison to how cringe-worthy her last album was.

Lady Gaga needs to stop taking herself so seriously and go back to making catchy, unpretentious pop music. I shouldn't have been disappointed given how weak her last effort was, but wow, Artpop is a stinker. There are a couple of tracks that could actually be good, but are ruined by embarrassing lyrics and her babbling over them. I don't know what I expected.


I just downloaded HAIM, I don't know anything about their schtick except they got a lot of buzz so I got curious. I still have to listen to the album in full.

I was actually rooting for Lady Gaga because everybody wanted her to fail. I wanted ONTD to explode. But then based on what I've been hearing its awful. I still have to listen to the album though.

HAIM is one of those bands where if they were my friends who happened to have that band, I would think they were amazingly talented and should be famous, but as a famous band, I have no clue why anyone is into them. I don't know what that means or why that is, but I don't like them. I don't dislike them either.

I just looked at the P-4rk top 50 albums this year, and have heard like 4 of them. I guess I'm a grownup now.

Listened to HAIM, catchy album, but I hear typical 80's beats rejuvenated for the indie listeners. New Yeah Yeah Yeahs is so-so. Looked at the Pitchfork list and I got 8, but I haven't listened to half of them. Not really impressed by new JT's album.

I love the YYYs album but HAIM... I don't like it very much at all.

Right now, Beck's new album is my favorite album of 2014 so far along with new releases by Dum Dum Girls, Phantogram, St. Vincent, Mogwai, and Warpaint.

Always struggled to get into her stuff. Think there were a couple songs I really liked off her first album (remember they were early on cos I'd always stop listening to the album early) but nothing has really grabbed me since. I kinda like the idea of her, just no songs to cling onto yet.

did a first spin, sounds....predictable, tracks start slow and melancholic then builds up into something big. But then again I was half asleep while I was listening.

OT - I attended this summer party mixer at my bosses' house, the wife of the CEO. Things we're doing alright (free food, free booze). I steered clear of the CEO and his buddies, and then I saw him and my boss embracing to kiss, hella awkward.

I don't mind Lana that much. It is very samey and all sorta pales to Video Games but there's a lot worse out there imo.
