Google’s recommendations for the day:
Acres - Lonely World
Melodic and crunchy, a good album for this morning.
Mega Ran - Meyond the Stars: A Mixtape
I don’t listen to a lot of rap, but I think I’ll be going through Mega Ran’s catalog a bit more.
Monarch - Beyond the Blue Sky
Trippy. I was kinda zoning out half-napping when it was on and it was great for that. It’ll need another listen when I’m more awake.
The Rocket Summer - Sweet Shivers
Pretty great indie alternative music. Eclectic and interesting. Keep Going is the standout track for me.
MST3K - Laserblast
Puppet aliens leave a literal arm cannon around for a fan of AOR and Southern Rock to find and, subsequently, go crazy with and start shooting cars and planes and stuff.
MonsterVision - Maximum Overdrive
A serious, cautionary tale about the dangers of autonomous vehicles and artificial intelligence.
That’s not the synopsis I would give for Maximum Overdrive. This weird Stephen King-directed film is quite the production, that’s for sure. 🚛🚛
I’m going through Don Broco’s albums today and Monday while I do house stuff. They’re touring with Trash Boat, but Trash Boat won’t be at any of the shows near me. If there was a sad raccoon emoji to rate these albums with, I’d use that. Instead, I’ll use the regular raccoon emoji.
Don Broco - Technology
Loud, crystal clear, very dancy, and a great selection of some pretty deep, interesting topics in the lyrics. The U2-inspired “Got To Be You“ is amazing. 🦝🦝🦝🦝🦝
Don Broco - Automatic
Big, loud, energetic, and just plain awesome. 🦝🦝🦝🦝
Don Broco - Priorities
A good intro to what this band will eventually become. A bit more mellow than the newer entries, still great. 🦝🦝🦝🦝
Also, from Coworker Recommendation Time:
Bon Iver - i,i
Now sure I’ve ever listened to Bon Iver before but they remind me of TV On The Radio a bit. I think this would make for a good eveningtime/rainy day album/long road trip album for me, so it gets 📺📺📺📺.
A few albums that Google Play Music said were like Trash Boat. I will rate them with 🦝 emoji:
The Gospel Youth - Thoughtless
6 track album with enough screaming, melodies, and plenty of emo-y/pop punk-y goodness to get me going this morning. 🦝🦝🦝
TheCityIsOurs - Low
A bit more screamo than I typically go for, but I don’t hate it. Would be good background music for an aggressive house cleaning. Yes, I’m old. 🦝🦝
Bad Heaven Ltd. - Strength
A little too lo-fi and shoegaze-y for my tastes. 🦝
Sometimes I forget what media I’ve seen/read/listened to and what I thought of it. Hopefully this will help me remember.
