Why? Because I want to.

I don't know why it took me so long to get around to this artist, but wow.

I'd been thinking about doing a thread like this for a while - others have, and it seems like a solid concept - and for whatever reason, today was the day.

I'm not listening this at the moment, but Facebook coughed it up in the recent past - one of those odd instances of social media algorithms coughing up the right magic somehow. Beats is banging, as the kids say.

You won't need coffee if you've got this:

I've been aware of Rob Inhuman for a while but hadn't listened to his stuff for a minute. This scratches a certain industrial itch.

From the new Noname album, the opening track ("Self") is my personal favorite.

This band may just be the truth. (If not, maybe just a seductive half-truth. Whatever, though.)

Space-Age Bachelor Pad Muzak (actually better than that)

This song (and its parent LP, the only one the band ever released) still carries a charge. (Way) back when I still ran a physical zine and was exchanging them with strangers through the mail - 1996, specifically - I wound up with a mixtape featuring "Devil to the Lamb," then spent years seeking Fur's s/t record. (Ultimately got lucky - thank you, Bert's in Newark, Delaware!) Hopefully it's not totally lost to history. Hopefully Holly Ramos is plotting a comeback somewhere.

Somehow I never spent quite enough time with this record back in the day, and in memory lump it in with the pre-Painful YLT LPs I didn't care for. It's certainly much better than that.

Is that the most soothing song he has ever written? Listening to that makes me think that I wouldn't have minded a dad who sang me to sleep with such a sweet song. I haven't listened to the lyrics btw.

It just may be, Alex.

Lord willing, there will never be a time when this LP doesn't somehow make me feel better about things.
