I can't say I've ever been a big Alt-J fan. Played "Tesellate" before they got big when I was DJing a party and everyone kept asking me what it was, but it's been diminishing returns since then.

Gotta say, I like the new song and lo-poly vapourwave aesthetic. With an album called Relaxer, I think they've developed a much-needed smidge of self-awareness.

Pearl Jam's upcoming induction into the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame (and the fact they invited all 20 of their former drummers to the event, even though they won't all be getting in) made me think of Jack Irons' original band, Eleven. Loved this tune when I was a wee lad. It's definitely a 90s tune but not in a bad way.

Wow. So I'm only now just learning about Death, this unknown band from Detroit.



So these guys were pumping out punk music before punk was a thing, in Motown of all places. They were denied a record deal from record exec extraordinaire Clive Davis when they refused to change their name. Their stuff would sit unreleased until well over 30 years later when their music came to the attention of an indie label based in Chicago.

It don't get much more punk than that.

One of Death's members moved to Vermont and raised his kids there. Now they're grown up and in a pretty good punk band called Rough Francis.

You're forgetting that Iggy and the Stooges and the MC5 were pumping out pre-punk in Detroit in the mid to late 1960's.

Friends and family who haven't liked any new music since Oasis in the 90's are flipping out about the new Harry Styles. Who would've thought a One Direction member would be the one to save rock n roll? Yeah, it sounds like Rod Stewart singing a glam anthem, but somehow it doesn't feel like a retread or cheesy.

Goldfinger...haven't aged well!

A few songs are still fun, though.

Yep...the Chainsmokers are definitely NOT my cup of tea.

But the wife liked 'em.

A B-side that also appeared on the Much at Edgefest '99 CD, and still one of my favorite tunes from Big Wreck.

Greta Van Fleet has come to save us from the terrible state of music! There is hope for young people yet!

My rock friends love these guys. They sound good, do the Zep thing well. The decline/classical musicification of rock really hit home checking out this year's Coachella lineup. Even these guys, who've been pretty hyped, barely cracked the 5th row on their day.
