Lots going on in the music world and no time to keep up! Hey, at least there are ZERO good albums to review right now so that I have more time for posts like this one (seriously, May-June-July is weak on the album release front...).
First off, Gorillaz have, as has been expected for months now, announced their 2018 follow-up to the debacle that was 2017's 'Humanz' ... it will be entitled 'The Now Now'
Another long-anticipated album, 'Mitsubishi Macchiato' (or whatever its real name will be) from Vampire Weekend is all but finished; shows are also lined up for the summer and a new logo (?) has made an appearance
Kendrick Lamar, world's most important rapper and now Pulitzer Prize winner, collected his historic award recently; in less meaningful news, Pusha T and Drake, who are not important rappers, have unleashed a crap-storm of childishness that cool kids call a "beef"
As for me, there are no albums to review in the coming months (aside from a subpar effort from FJM, there is precious little out there ... sorry Florence ... not sorry Gorillaz) SO I have given myself a challenge. I am admittedly not a fan per se of David Bowie's music though I am very aware of the MASSIVE impact the man had and continues to have on modern music. So? I am going to listen to every single last one of his 27 studio albums (that's not a typo) and then reflect. I may drink a little while listening. Or put on a dress. Or dance. But I will listen to them all and perhaps in the process, become a born-again Bowie fan ... here's hoping that at the very least I will get a better appreciation of the man's genius (which is without question).
