   Thanks for the support, I really appreciate it. <3  
Congratulations on the new amp. You really outdid yourself, Alex. I love the aesthetic of every Cavalli amp, but this is perhaps the most beautiful of all
 Really glad you singled that track out, as it's definitely a favorite of mine as well. So pretty.     Yeah, the Perfume Genius (almost typed 'Perfume Jesus') album is addictive. Those songs keep getting stuck in my head. Maybe it's because I listened to all of Taiga while watching a blood moon eclipse, but personally I find the album to be really powerful. The only real misstep I hear is the first half of "Hunger" with its blaring horns that just falls a bit flat. Overall...
It's 5:50 am. Right now I'm parked in an empty lot, watching the blood moon eclipse with a friend. Listening to the new Zola Jesus and Flying Lotus albums (w/ a bit of Caribou thrown in the mix).   Just checked Thirdworlds. Went down right at the blood moon. Could be from people checking it, but it would be cool if Death Grips released their last album now.
 I think most of his popularity comes from depressed white boys who identify with him for whatever reason. Or people who are nodding out on painkillers (hence his name). Musically, his albums range from bad to good-ish. At his best, he has okay hooks and his flow blurs into a droning stream like on the track "Sandman." When you put some competent production behind him it's definitely listenable to my ears, and I can understand why people might like the dark, murky...
 They're a good source for music news. Though honestly I wish they'd shut up about Sun Kil Moon's Mark Kozelek and every single stupid thing he says.I don't need to know every time Artist X says something criticizing Artist Y. Also Twitter beefs. Definitely don't need to hear 'bout those. Also whoops! The new Zola Jesus album got a 5 point something from a random person on Pitchfork.Guess you folks can't hear it now. :(
  Pitchfork rated one of my favorite albums of all time a 0. That's not a typo. A zero.The reviewer was too lazy to set it up properly to even listen. It's not even the fact that random people assigning numbers to music to represent their feelings toward it is about as ridiculous as assigning colors to them (in my opinion), but the fact that a single "music journalist" listens to an album and people say "Pitchfork gave it a/n _____" like it has all this authority to it....
When was the last time Pitchfork gave something higher than an eight-point-something, again?   I know they came over Arcade Fire and Dracula Holiday in the past...
For 24 hours Flying Lotus will stream their new album You're Dead! to some amazing visualizations:   http://flying-lotus.com/youre-dead/   Check this out for an amazing jazz-o-tronic-psych-o-transcendent experience.   Then check out the music video for "Never Catch Me" w/ Kendric Lamar, which is my favorite music video this year by far:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lXD0vv-ds8   Powerful stuff.
 I'd start with these two albums: Select Ambient Works 85-92Richard D. James Album Both serve as good representations of Richard D. James's most iconic musical tendencies: his playful and confounding, but also his softer and [relatively] more 'traditional' club side. I'd also recommend checking out these early on in your discovery process: Select Ambient Works Vol. 2Hangable Audio BulbCome To Daddy EP ("Bucephalus Bouncing Ball" is one of my all-time favorite tracks of...
