  5. These are great:


    Allvays - Antisocialites

    The War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding

    The Regrettes - Feel Your Feelings Fool

    Ty Segall - S/T

    Kevin Morby - City Music

    Japanese Breakfast - Soft Sounds From Another Planet

    Big Thief - Capacity

    Rips - S/T

    Drive By Truckers - American Band

    That Rips albums is very good.  I'm a big fan of American Band, too, but it came out last year.

  6. Technically that line came from Patti Smith.

    Patterson credits her.


    I have never believed a song could change the world. But perhaps a song can provide an outlet for emotion, a tonic for the troops. Maybe a song can be a platform to launch our dreams from, a source of a little light to warm up our darkest nights. One more reason to raise our fists into the air and quote Patti Smith: “Love each other, motherfuckers!”


  7. Yeah, like maybe a couple notches better than everything since they got back to it, right?


    I've only streamed it but it seemed like it had more memorable tunes than Class Clown, or Bears for Lunch etc.

    I never warmed up to Class Clown, but Bears for Lunch is a solid record.  I think I'm ready to say HDYSH is the best GBV record since Earthquake Glue.

    First time I saw them was Alien Lanes era & have been a loyal follower.

    Great time to get on board.

  8. Late to the GBV party, but I noticed that they're coming to my city (Lexington KY, woohoo!), and was listening to the new record today (How Do You Spell Heaven).  I like the record, but a little intimidated by their back catalog looking at this thread and the Spotify list.

    What do you all think of the new one?  How are they live?  Where to start in the massive archives??


    Overwhelming but very rewarding listening experience.  Most of the album recommendations above are spot on.  If you are looking to sample a range of his material, here's a link to a Spotify playlist I cobbled together last summer.

  9. Other than message boards, I had avoided any kind of social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).  My job necessitated that I jump into the Twitter game.  I wasn't too enthusiastic about it, but several months in, it's not so bad.  In fact, there are several aspects of it I actually like.
