So, we’re still locked up. We’re still thinking about learning new hobbies then giving them up after a day. Netflix has run out of original content and is secretly mining Amazon for their shows. But there is still grind. Thank. Fuck. You’d think I’d have hundreds of new suggestions for…

Heavy Blog’s Top 50 Albums of 2019

This is one of those years where you’re writing your end of year summary every day. It’s a year which inundated all of us with so much music, and from so many angles and genres, that it almost begged to constantly be analyzed, made sense of, and conceptualized. I’ve written…
