WOW. 2012, am I right? This year was an especially difficult one for us top album listers because there were so many great albums released. It’s a good problem to have – every Tuesday, I’d look at the list of new album releases, and it was like those lists were saying, “Happy Birthday, Dude.” On […]


Here we go. Four simple categories, 41 albums, one amazing song. This is how CK’s year-end analysis begins. HONORABLE MENTION: Number 11 through 15 on my top ten list, in alphabetical order. These albums are given the same full review as the top ten (coming soon!). This year, you get a bonus 16th record! WORTH NOTICING: […]


I have been having in-excess much festivity with thesaurus.com and the fruition may be an entry that is strenuous to read. A few 24 hour periods ago, CK gave us Fatal Omissions. In just a moment, I will unveil my Deathly Noninclusions for 2010 in music. Below you will find the following categories: Song of […]


The music industry is a battlefield. I realize that’s an easy metaphor to pull out of your back pocket, but it’s more true than ever. However, it’s no longer the sort of battlefield where two opposing armies walk toward each other until they are close enough to swing swords. No, this battlefield is the kind […]


Here we go again! It’s now officially halfway through the year 2010. TK is busy hiking the Pacific Coast Trail, so I’m holding down CKTK duties while he’s gone. During the first half of this year, we officially launched our Facebook and Twitter accounts. Check those out for more frequent updates. Also, I just launched […]


As the resident realist (ooh, band name) I will state rather matter-of-factly that the new decade in music is off to a thoroughly mediocre start. CK disagrees and you can read about it here. Need evidence? Well, for starters, Samantha Fox has yet to release an album. If you’ve been following this blog, you already […]


Here it is, folks: My report on the first quarter of 2010. It’s been a solid year so far. This list is presented with minimal commentary; just know that you’ll see many of these records in my “Best of 2010” post nine months from now. But you don’t have to take my word for it… […]


On Friday night, TK and I each went to shows in different cities. TK took off to see Yeasayer and Warpaint at the Natural History Museum’s “First Fridays” series in LA, while I went to see Vedera, fun., and Jack’s Mannequin at the Showbox SoDo in Seattle. I’ll have a show review coming soon, but […]


We’re Yeasayer-crazy at CKTK right about now. Their sophomore album, Odd Blood, is available for purchase online, and the CD drops into stores on Tuesday, February 9. My song of today is “O.N.E”, the fantastic second single from Odd Blood. It’s a tribal stomp through broken relationships, space-age sound effects, and a catchy-as-hell chorus. Enjoy. Download “O.N.E” […]


Hey hey, here we go. I hope you spent the entire weekend evaluating the picks from the previous post. This has been quite the metaphorical trip down memory lane for me; I was 14 when the naughties began, and I’m 24 on the way out. Most of my music-listening life happened in the last ten […]
