2018 had nothing on 2017 in terms of quantity of amazing releases (seriously, 2017 may have been the best year for new music since the 90’s). However what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality.
Sometimes I neglect recommendations and then forget about them. Often these are the bands I end up regretting the most when someone finally actually gets me to listen and then tells me all about the shows on those early tours I missed. Obviously, this is one of those bands.
Kind of amusing to see an Oppo post show up on the front page over there.
Guard Duck was one of the OG off topic / oppositelock commenters who disappeared with the great platform migration and went to google+ rather than stick around here. But prior to that he was a friend, wealth of knowledge, and all around great guy here, and he remained the same or even more so once we got to know him…
Hi all, this is a political post talking about Net Neutrality started by your friendly neighborhood moderator Gamecat. If you don’t want to talk about this subject here, please go on to the next post in the list.
First night? Revolution... what recommendations do the rest of you have? Beer first, sadly, no dairy, which means that the worlds greatest pizza is out, but most anything else is fair game.
I will never ceased to be impressed by the quality and musical tie-ins (ties-in? LOL) that he so naturally works into his videos and the musical talent to go along with. This is a medium length video, ostensibly about a Tesla Model X, that a vast majority of Oppo should watch.
Went with a slight customization. Absolutely love it.
Was a solid, exquisite, whiskey barrel aged Russian Imperial Stout... but find one I did. You will get no complaints from me.
‘14 FiST. Am in love. Only took my entire life to finally buy a car that is actually well and truly fun.
I have, at times talked about Jeff Noon and my at times borderline obsessiveness over the literary universe(s) he has created (Vurt being the major, most central to them - a fantasy drugged and musicked version of Manchester).
This... is different. The shoegaze fan in me is fucking thrilled. The A Place To Bury Strangers fan in me is ecstatic. Oh man. Going back for more.
Next Friday the new Nine Inch Nails EP drops. Not The Actual Events is the name of the release and it can be had in three formats, vinyl, “physical object”, and digital download (which comes with all three formats).
http://www.nin.com/ is just this at the moment.
This has been a test of the Maybe 2016 Will Have New NIN Material or News notification system. In the event that this contained actual news, you would see excessive use of gifs and exclamation marks. Instead this has been merely your pre-alert that something may be…
TNAF decided to release well produced lyric videos for all of the songs from their latest album, Simple Forms, which btw, is a great album, especially if you appreciated either of their previous albums (it’s a return to Passive Me Aggressive You in some ways, which can only be a good thing, but it doesn’t ignore the…
I just want to bitch about this in a relatively safe space (one that isn’t a FP).
Paid extra for the meet and greet and soundcheck. So insanely impressed with their new material. And they did a couple of acoustic songs to practice for a radio promo. My god. I cannot wait for the new album.
An all time favorite to take you into the weekend.
And not get here. I am disappointed in all of you. All of you. Even you. Especially you.
I had an opportunity to use this gif! And I took it!
