“Wasn’t the 70s a drag, you know ? Well here we are, let’s make the 80s great because it’s up to us to make what we can of it” ... I always think about this Lennon quote when I spin this album. Remembering John today with a record that just can’t be heard without thinking about the sad ending he would face just a few weeks after the album’s release. Double Fantasy marked the return of this musical icon, he was ready to get back to music after 5 years at home, living a “normal” houseman life. He was more in terms with his life, relaxed and confident, he had found the drive to get back to writing songs and recording. Feeling good, at peace, in love and he wanted to express it. Some of his best songs are on this album, (Just Like) Starting Over, Beautiful Boy and most of all, Woman, probably the best love song he ever wrote. While some songs feel a bit weird in the tracklist, Yoko having a climax on one of her song makes it a bit weird to spin with kids around, I still think it’s a pretty good LP overall. His tragic death changed the view people have on this album, but it shouldn’t be heard as his swan song, John was feeling good and wanted to share this with everyone after all. Drop the needle, close your eyes, smile and be grateful for the great music he gave us through the years. Peace John ✌️ •
Spinning one of the best albums of 1989, the self titled debut of The Stone Roses. This album has stood the test of time, the songs remaining just as impactful today as they did upon release. Waterfall and Don’t Stop are my favorite tracks.
A new movie focuses on how David Bowie's unexpected passing impacted a fictional couple. Watch the just-released trailer for Speed of Life below. “In 2016, David Bowie's death creates a rift in time and space," according to a synopsis from the film's screening at the Atlanta Film Festival earlier this year. "June and Edward are in the midst of an argument when Edward suddenly falls into the wormhole created by Bowie's death, vanishing without a trace. In 2040, June continues to mourn the loss of Edward while facing the dark reality of her approaching 60th birthday, when she will be locked away along with the rest of her society's senior citizens. Unwilling to disappear, June begins to plan her escape when Edward suddenly reappears in her life. June has spent 24 years without Edward, but for Edward it has been mere moments." Speed of Life was named after the opening track from 1977's Low. Written and directed by Liz Manashil, the movie stars Allison Tolman (Fargo) and Ray Santiago (Meet the Fockers) as the young couple; Ann Dowd (The Handmaid's Tale) plays the older version of June. This is Manashil's second feature film, following 2014's Bread and Butter.
The movie will be released on Jan. 10, 2020, the fourth anniversary of Bowie's death, on Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play and other streaming services.
Another film about Bowie, the biopic Stardust, is currently in production. Johnny Flynn stars in a plot that reportedly centers on the 1971 U.S. tour that resulted in the birth of Bowie's Ziggy Stardust character. The movie isn't authorized by Bowie's estate, and Duncan Jones has said that his father's music will not be included.(Dave Lifton UCR) #33oscarlp#vinylcollectionpost#dustyfingers#vinylcollector#vinylrecords#recordcollection#vinyladdict#vinylclub#nowspinning#vinylcollection#vinyloftheday#vinyllover#33rpm#vinylrecord#records#instavinyl#vinyllove#vinylporn#vinyljunkie#vinylcommunity#recordplayer#vinylgram#nowplaying#recordcollector#vinyligclub#recordoftheday#vinyl#33giri#turntable
Brockhampton dropped their new record “GINGER” on August 23rd of this year. I think it’s their most focused record, musically and thematically. Is it my favorite of theirs? No, but it has definitely grown on me since the first listen. Probably my biggest critique would have to be with the rapping. A lot of it is pretty mumbled and hard to make out and that’s kind of a problem, when it’s supposed to be the center piece of each song. They haven’t always been this way either. Just my opinion.
They did something really cool with this release though, by including every fans name that pre ordered on the insert. I guess I forgot to include my last name when I submitted. Oh well!
