dude... incredible. : the albums, 2014.


05/mac demarco/salad days

salad days is an album about getting better. slowing down and getting a grip on a life that appears to be passing right in front of your eyes. always feeling tired/smiling when required, and letting what mom don't know take its toll on him is getting old, and mac wants to do better, for himself, and the others: the ladies who need to be treated better if they actually mean something to him, and the friends who make life easier when they're beside him. salad days plays out this all too familiar game of wanting to be better yourself so that you can be stronger, grounded, and a blessing to those around you. the music breathes and operates like mac's thoughts and aspirations here: low, with controlled guitars and clear acoustics; plus a few chamber pop and psychedelic infusions. with salad days, mac lets us inside his crowded headspace, offering up front row seats to his quest for a little peace and clarity. it's mac demarco's chamber of reflection: a calm and incredibly inviting space where the going often gets tough, but generally speaking, is fine. most definitely, earnestly fine.

05/beyonce feat. jay z/drunk in love

drunk in love.

for the women who are ladies in the streets, and freaks in the bed. for those who are fond of saying or have ever uttered 'you want me to dance for you baby?' for those who experience foreplay over a dinner table or sink full of dishes, and often go all night. folks with bodies so fluorescent under all of the lights, and the men and women who love them. the trap heads, and beyonce stans. those who grain on that wood and do it well, and those who enjoy breastasses for breakfast, sweating out sheets like wash rags, and mastering the sufbordt. for you, for them, for us. drunk in love.

06/beyonce/beyonce

track two. four and a half minutes in. Beyonce: "...slap me. i'm pinned to the doorway. kiss(!), bite(!), F**K ME!"... a few minutes later, Beyonce: "driver roll up the partition please. i don't need you seeing yonce on her knees..." and then a few minutes after that, Beyonce: "let me sit this aaaaaassssss....on ya!"

yeah... this isn't your book of matthew beyonce.

her mama taught her good home training, her daddy taught her how to love her haters, her sister told her she should speak her mind, and her man makes her feel so goddamn fine, leaving us here, with this: the first beyonce album in which the songs feel lived in. we could talk about the way the album was dropped, or wax poetic on our favorite this or that from the (absolutely terrific) visual album, but we're here with this still a year later because of what we hear from b and her merry band of collaborators. balladry? is that trap music? is she spittin'? a ted talk interlude on feminism? yep, mmm hmm, that is correct. beyonce matures, opens up, and relates over it all, exposing and pushing herself; enjoying being herself. a grown woman comfortable in her skin, this is what you hear when you press play on beyonce. that's a good look.

dude... incredible. : the songs, 2014.


06/chris brown, usher, and rick ross/new flame

'cause somehow, someway, chris and usher managed to make a song about picking up a woman in the club sound sweet and genuine. 'cause usher is like a good influence/older brother here, which makes chris turn the juvenile antics and pick up lines off. 'cause it almost operates like an apology for all four and half minutes of loyal and whatever remixes it inspired. 'cause i enjoy singing along to it. 'cause it's funny when rick ross thinks he is funny. 'cause if high school musical had numbers like this in it, i might have tuned in. 'cause that melody is hypnotic, eschews current trends, and plays like an r&b throwback. 'cause, again, usher. all of that. that's why i stay in love.

07/spoon/they want my soul

at various points throughout they want my soul, we catch britt and the band in a groove. hums to the melody that come alive through generous speakers; harmonious na na nas and the like fitting in perfectly where words aren't needed. falsettos, and that rhythm. and the catharsis via loose hanging sing along scats. spoon loves the music just as much as we do, and this love is translated and carried over into the soulful post punk silhouettes housing it all. it shouldn't sound and be this easy, but spoon continues to expand and master their sound without losing sight of the groove. no wonder they all want in. they too want to feel it and have it in their soul.

07/todd terje feat. bryan ferry/johnny & mary

the relationship between the audience and an artist/dj/dancefloor curator like Todd Terje is largely a game of trust. we trust that todd will enlighten and entertain us with each beat drop, and maintain a stone cold groove while he has us enraptured. and he trusts that we will join him and enjoy ourselves, no matter what he throws our way. at the halfway point of the euphoric after hours disco that is his debut, todd asks that we trust and indulge him as he drops this six and half minute cover of robert palmer's johnny & mary into the mix. with johnny & mary, todd takes it back, slows the tempo, and invites a vocalist to the stage (a wonderfully understated performance from bryan ferry). it is abrupt, unlike anything that comes before or after it, and sounds nothing like the original. and it works. it works because it jams. a quiet storm of a track that turns mr. palmer's spastic three and a half minute original into a slow burning r&b trance that matches the emotional heaviness of the domestic trials on display. for six and a half minutes, todd and bryan and johnny and mary cascade on sounds and feelings not too distant from that produced by roger & zapp. and it works. the tempo may have been lowered, but the groove is still intact. trust this and trust him, as johnny & mary is another solid reminder that with todd terje, you're in good hands, no matter the speed.

08/st. vincent/st. vincent

annie clark is still holding for the laugh. at multiple points throughout her spectacular fourth album as st. vincent, she wonders aloud if this is all some sort of joke. it has to be, right? more connected than ever, and still unaccessible. st. vincent wants all of your mind; to mean more than she means to you. she wants to connect. with st. vincent, annie clark seeks out the organic in a digital world, needing a break from the twenty-first century and its distractions, zeros, and ones. st. vincent is also a fantastically elastic guitar record that balances itself out with lush and concise softer moments, as is heard on the gripping final track, severed crossed fingers. an exasperated clark chants enough, enough, enough til it reaches a crescendo. your way of living is no longer entertaining for her. fortunately for us, her quest for genuine connection and all the observations made along the way are.

words.

"When I was asked to write about what our society learned about racism in 2014, my initial response was to say "nothing." We've been repeating the same mistakes of systemic prejudice, bias, and senseless violence since long before I was a twinkle in my white dad's eyeball. It's hard to look at the images coming out of Ferguson, Missouri, and not assume that some grotesque apocalyptic nightmare has been belched out from underneath our feet. The only thing I feel like I've learned is to stay the fuck inside my house with the doors locked and a firearm at the ready.

 ...2014 made us all want to give up, but we've got to overcome, at least until the end of Obama's second term. He's got two more years to find his inner ​Dolemite and dropkick the world into a neverending state of inoffensive, mushy bliss. In the meantime, let's try to make sense of the last 12 months of bummers..."

08/parquet courts/ducking and dodging

there's a lot going down and being said on ducking and dodging. chastising, anger, and slaps on the wrists? check. finger pointing, words of disappointment, and banishment? present. stripes and bars unlocked doors, contest prizes, grand pianos, all remarked and dwelled upon at breakneck speed. it means something, but then it again it doesn't. is it supposed to? does it matter? you could spend countless minutes and hours trying to unlock or dissect what is being said, and even still, your search for something deeper could wind up being fruitless. the one certainty here is how serious parquet courts is. about what is being said, and what is being played. this can not be denied. you hear it in the delivery and rapid fire presentation of the lyrics, and of course, in the music itself. this is confirmed around the two minute mark where the band unleashes a wonky and fun loving bridge that comes in, does what it does, and does it well in under a minute. for parquet, doing what it does is delivering a sharp and precisely executed toe tapping garage rock stomp that is indicative of what can be found on the rest of their album and in their back catalog. no ducking and dodging this. for four and a half minutes here, this is clearly understood.

09/los angeles police department/los angeles police department

lovers come and lovers go, and in between there's peaks and valleys. self doubt, then obsession; sheer bliss, then regret. talks to yourself, and arguments with the other. peaks and valleys, highs and lows. with his los angeles police department project, ryan pollie moves through the unpredictable inner workings of giving this old thing love (or at least working towards it) a try. personal subject matter presented in a warm, comforting setting, familiar to most. lapd is twenty five minutes of dreamy lo fi ambient pop and beautiful acoustics, softening the caustic scenarios revisited over the course of the album. presented from los angeles, handled and crafted with care; lapd is an escape and release. for ryan pollie and anyone who can (and wishes to) relate.

in between the sheets.

a moment of clarity.

words. 

"...What’s truly depressing is the “cromnibus,” the continuing resolution just passed to fund the government — which contains a wide variety of sometimes obscure and often corrupt riders, and signals the start of plundering just about every good piece of legislation you can think of, including school nutrition.

By all means, it’s worrisome that two of the best things the Obamas have done in the realm of food — making school lunches healthier and showing people just how much and how badly they’re eating at chain restaurants — are under attack. But let’s not overlook the damage done by treacherous Democrats and reactionary Republicans who joined to pass a continuing resolution that embodies the worst of Washington deal-making. The only good that may come of it is that this preview of the new Congress should scare more of us into building a movement that will elect candidates who represent the majority of Americans come 2016.

...That corporations and their lobbyists have an edge over the rest of us is nothing new, although their power is now so absolute that the task ahead — prioritizing public over corporate well-being — seems impossible. (Paul Krugman put it best: “They’ve bought themselves a Congress.”) But inaction is a luxury we can’t afford, because things are getting worse. And they’re going to get better only if we organize.

...The 2014 election was a wake-up call; when the reactionaries fully take over Congress, not only school lunch standards but every standing bit of progressive legislation, from the new Affordable Care Act to the 42-year-old Clean Water Act, will be ruthlessly attacked. To defend these programs, we must recognize that politicians will not do anything smart unless they are pushed, and it’s up to us to push them."

g.u.y. is a song about power. it is also a song about sex: power, sex, and the age old art of putting it on you. you may have missed this the first few times you heard it (I certainly did, eventhough the title pretty much gives it all away). such is the power of a great love song, and gaga's love song right here. g.u.y. is a love song doing double duty as an empowerment anthem and aural reminder that submission does not equal weakness, and can also act as a weapon of love. such is the power of love, and such is the power of g.u.y, a clever and sonically filthy romp that never loses sight of the task at hand (getting down and turning you on).

at the top of 2014 we didn't know we needed a new pharrell williams album, but we needed a new pharrell williams album. this pharrell williams album. presently, male fronted r&b is involved (or enamored?) with disloyal jezebels and harlots, totally disinterested in romancing the stone or stealing your heart. with g i r l we get a much needed break from the current, and take it back to a time where funk & r&b musicians gave it their all for two things: the groove and your heart (and your loins. okay, yes, that too). shouts to the influences that came before us: stevie, prince, r. james, earth, wind, & them, etc. g i r l is for the ladies who knock us off our feet. our cherie amours. sugar pie honey bunch. it's pharrell matured. the neptunes sound expanded; thickened and smoothed around the edges. a love letter to all the it girls making you feel brand new. love's in need of love today, and g i r l answers this call.

in conflict.

an ongoing discussion/moment of clarity.

words.

"...the curtain of invisibility behind which we have lived for so long has been pulled back, surprising and disturbing some of the most well-meaning whites. Recall the “I had no idea” comment of television host Chris Matthews when President Obama indicated that he, too, had been subjected to stereotyping.

And pulling back the curtain of invisibility has confounded many who believed they could continue their patterns of discrimination with anonymity.

...Taking a page from another book, Chris Rock was interviewed in a recent Vulture magazine article. His take on changing attitudes toward people of color was interesting.

He continued, “So, to say Obama is progress is saying that he’s the first black person that is qualified to be president. That’s not black progress. That’s white progress. There have been black people qualified to be president for hundreds of years…..the advantage my children have is my children are encountering the nicest white people that America ever produced. Let’s hope America keeps producing nicer white people.” (Keep in mind the audiences of this comedian when you read this statement).

The narrative about race is changing. Witness the CBS national news just last night in which two young whites acknowledged that they never had to think about race as they went about their daily lives, but they understood that the African Americans on the panel think about race all-of-the-time. Their ability to empathize, to put themselves in the shoes of African Americans, is a very important part of better communication between the races.

So, as the conversation and the work continue, let us all remember that we have a chance to participate in changing our society."

THE WASHINGTON POST: Charlene Drew Jarvis: ‘The narrative about race is changing’

real talk.

an ongoing discussion/moment of clarity.

words.

"The United States desperately needs a politics of repair, not a politics of demolition and rebuilding. We need leaders who take populist discontent seriously but direct it toward projects of practical reform. Our distrust of institutions is a fact. But it is a problem, not a goal. The proper response is the renovation of institutions that allow us to live a decent, compassionate, orderly life together. This is the dignity and importance of the political profession."

THE WASHINGTON POST: It’s time for a politics of repair

a moment of clarity.

words. 

"...IRS budget cuts make tax evasion look not only easier but also more justifiable. Our tax system functions mostly through voluntary compliance. But as taxpayers get more disgusted by their interactions with the IRS — and by reports of rich companies not paying their fair share of taxes (more on that in a bit) — “tax morale” will wane and tax cheating will likely rise. Which will require higher statutory tax rates to make up for the shortfall.

...If Congress really wanted to lower tax rates, it would broaden the tax base by simplifying the tax code, and it would adequately staff the agency tasked with collecting taxes. In both cases, it has done the opposite. All of this means that our political leaders have not only improved the odds for getting away with (illegal) tax evasion; they have also created more opportunities for (perfectly legal, methodically planned) tax avoidance. Put these factors together, and higher statutory tax rates look inevitable."

take a minute if you will to recall the last great rock concert you attended. jot down and luxuriate in all the reasons why this show was one for the history books, and one you'll never forget. set list? I'm assuming it was perfect or damn near (all killer, no filler). entrance with a bang, attention held throughout. little time to breathe, but plenty time to keep on rocking in the free world. ex hex's rips is not a live album or set, but it plays like one everytime you return to it. and it's this energy, in combination with the crisp punk ethos, clear vision, and technical precision of Mary Timony's all female power pop trio that takes hold of your senses, activating them all at once. the set list? perfect or damn near (all killer, no filler). entrance with a bang, and attention held throughout. little time to breathe, but plenty time to (SWEAT and) keep on rocking in the free world. methodical face melting shredding was in high supply this year, but few acts (and sets) were as tight and on point as ex hex's rips.
