The Joup Friday Album – The National: The Boxer

The BoxerSo this is going to be new, because we’re going to get to know this one together. I became a fan – and I mean a rabid, rabid fan of The National via a burned copy of High Violet that a former co-worker slipped me back around the time it came out in May of 2010. I sat on the record for a few years because at the time I was inundated with new music and what I can now admit was a completely erroneous idea that The National’s music was what I call “beard and wine music” (think Bon Iver – who knows, I may one day find I’m wrong about him too). So around 2014 Bret Easton Ellis had the band’s lead singer Matt Berninger one his podcast. I was unfamiliar with the guest by name, and as the cast began with the opening of High Violet’s Conversation 16 my eyes went wide – it sounded exactly like Ellis’s prose – which I am an enormous fan of – reads: haunted. I listened to the conversation Ellis and Berninger shared, which dwelled largely on Mistaken For Strangers, and afterward sought out the song on youtube. When I did I realized it was from the album I had on file and immediately dug it out of one of the stacks of burned discs that live in a cupboard in my dining room.

“Lions” by Jonquil

Last year’s divine shittiness has been thought about and dwelled upon and writ into the stars ad nauseam to the point that to decry it even further seems utterly derivative and clichéd.  It changes nothing.  It helps no one.  And it certainly doesn’t add anything to the table for discussion or dissent.  It simply is what it is.  Unfortunately that same shittiness hangs over this new year like an ominous cloud, casting dark and frightening shadows across everything for all to behold and tremble.  And that’s no way to begin a new year.

The Joup Friday Album: Jessy Lanza ‘Oh No’

 Jessy Lanza List of things you should do while listening to Oh No, by Jessy Lanza:
  1. Go to an 80’s themed dance party
  2. Drive around in the rain
  3. Shop for some really upscale, nice clothes
  4. Make out and/or make love
  5. Buy it on vinyl (it sounds great)
  6. Play the title track, “VV Violence,” and “Never Enough” over and over and over again
  7. Immediately listen to the thing again and see why it’s a brilliant synth-pop record
