I decided to give The National - Boxer another try on Spotify because it's been a few years and some of you folks here seem to love it so much. And I have to say, listening to it again ... it's profoundly boring. It's clearly well-crafted and thoughtful, so I have to assume that Profoundly Boring is what they were going for. So, I guess they nailed it.
I would (honestly) love it if you listened again this week and then a couple times next week and see if anything changes. Almost every superfan of the band I know had an album that grew on them until they were fully hooked versus being instantly in love with a song then running through the entire catalog with the same enthusiasm.
Wouldn't hurt to listen with headphones on as well, at least once.
I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

We also might need a control group here, so someone who is a decade younger and not yet with kids. I think there's a lot to be said for growing up at the same pace, a la "How I Met Your Mother".

Can't find a YT link but give me Margo Price any day of the week please. This is gold.

She's not wrong. Of course, her most recent nearly put me to sleep so insert shrug emoji.

I saw that on Twitter...and then saw a bunch of posts about how white artists doing covers of hip-hop songs is cultural appropriation.

Really?

Two of these things are vastly overrated. The other is an actual bridge.

I'm sure you'll love Phoebe Bridgers when she puts out her 4th album and I'm like "eh, this is a big departure, I like the older stuff better".

I really like Garden Song. Most of the rest of the new album is so boring and everyone's fawning over it.

I don't get the picture...is that Bridgers real account or something and it's funny or is it photoshop? I don't get it..

A posthumous Jason Molina album is both well-needed and somehow timely. Even though the songs are all a decade old, seems like they were written under Trump. (Like "Be Told The Truth").
