Pop is great. Just like any other genre some is fire, other stuff is dead-ass garbage. And the real magic is its all our silly ears and brains that decide which is which...Though I ignore that last part because I'm a grouch

If it makes you feel better, I enjoyed learning it. Is not stupid, though the way the French write is agonizing, some turns of phrase/numbers ARE stupid, but even those numbers are better than how things work in Arabic which still makes me angry.

I do like her new singles quite a bit. But it almost seems like predictability is her instrument or something.

Avatar 4:24pm Itzall Ablurr:

tim from champaign, there's never been a better time to buy CDs. Yes, we ALL love handling vinyl, I mean I know I DO. But when you can get a new CD on, let's say, Amazon for instance, for nearly HALF of what the record costs, um... no brainer. AND if you're OG like me you still listen to them in your car.

The video for this Weyes Blood single made me flat-out cry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm tim from champaign:

@John - that's sounds awesome! I only saw them once and it was on their last tour. I was 18 at the time and thought it was pretty great. In retrospect, I can't imagine it was actually very great.

It's like she's sticking to the formula that works for her out of comfort.

@Itzall - I do listen to them in the car! haha. Mainly cds from the library. Yes, used CDs are getting soo cheap.

I few years ago I brought over 1000 home made C90 cassette-compilations to the "kringloop" (charity shop). Kept a few hundred with original programs of Arnold Rypens (Belgian radio), Kinks stuff and Kinks covers, but don't listen to them anymore. Agree with Adrian. Too difficult.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Passaic River Blues:

I completely agree with all observations/critiques that Lana keeps mining the same vein. However, just like with Beach House, every single song could be nothing more than a variation on a theme and I’ll still eat it up because I am absolutely in undying love with the aesthetic, the tone, the sweet sorrow. Also, this Weyes Blood KILLS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Phillippe Bastille:

Interesting album cover. Monty Hall?
  4:30pm John in Bklyn:

@tim I've had those same experiences. But it doesn't matter. They were great to you at that time in your life. I'm sure they actually were rockin'. I saw Westerberg in 2005 and he put on a killer show. By all accounts the "reunion" shows a few years ago were great.
Avatar 4:30pm slugluv1313:

hello Sheila B. and everyone!!!!!!
loving the tunes -- home working and *trying* to catch up on . . . EVERYTHING, hah! but, your show is perfect comfort :)
and yes! HAPPY HOLI HAI! i believe it is this weekend? usually a festival/celebration by Exchange Place, but that may not be until May -- ??
  4:30pm Adrian in London:

@djsheilab No! Lana’s slow atmospheric stuff is so good. And the latest stripped-back tracks like Hope… is excellent.

Are you kidding me? I was just walking in Karakoy last week. This is making me super super super sad and wistful.
Avatar 4:32pm Mandy:

For me, Lana Del Rey and Beach House are ideal music for painting and drawing. Very far away, sorta sad but unobtrusive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm tneeld:

@Adrian in London - totally agree on Hope... but it's more intrusive, which makes me pretty excited for the new album.
Avatar 4:34pm The Contessa:

I was agreeing about Lana not John Bercow!

Sheila! Pre-ordered Weyes Blood right on my phone. Thanks for the heads up! This is why I love real human DJs :3

I think I'd call that Weyes Blood track extraordinary. ;)
  4:38pm zmzz:

"... her song shines on someone else's mashup mix tho" means her sheet music is good -- i.e. she's good song writer. perhaps strong will producer will let her free from her own shadowww...

It wasn’t a particular song this week (not even Weyes Blood!), I was on the fly last week during the Marathon show and had problems trying to work the FMU pledge site from my cell phone, so I put my pledge in this week at the top of the show, @DJ Sheila B.

I like this song about Baltimore, but I wonder if Newman actually visited. Its not actually "by the sea" and there weren't any places to catch a train in the neighborhoods he's describing. The Baltimore metro didn't exist until the 80s
