On this day in 1998, Beastie Boys released their fifth album, Hello Nasty. 

Oh hell yes.

"There is a stubbornness that causes Things Change to wane in its second half, and that’s Late Bloomer remembering their current situation: they’re a newish indie band in a relatively marooned indie rock locale (Charlotte) with a regrettable name knocking around in small shows."

Pitchfork review of Late Bloomer's new album Things Change.

Ouch. This is contained in a mostly positive review (7.0), but the above excerpt seemed harsh, both on the band and Charlotte.

Ryan Adams - “Gimme Something Good”

Details on the upcoming self-titled album here.

And as it turns out, that song is the opener on Adams’s new album, a self-titled and self-produced LP that Adams recorded at his own Pax-Am Studios in Los Angeles.

Really digging this song from It Looks Sad. a lot, and pumped to catch them tonight at Area 15 in NoDa (though I have no idea how this venue is going to be). Between these guys and Flagship, it’s exciting to me that Charlotte is starting to get more bands in which I can be interested in. I’m sure there are more out there that I just need to discover. Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to put this on repeat at least 5 more times.
