    Have you guys seen this play "Hamilton"? I mean, I haven't seen it either, because I'm not a New York billionaire, but I kept hearing that the cast album is really good, so I gave it a spin and, y'know what? It is.

    Here's a performance of the battle of Yorktown:

    32 million views, 5 years old, and I've only just seen it. I quite like it.

    I like that Cigarette Duet, Neb!

    Last weekend I went to see one of my favourite Swedish bands, bob hund, who finally got around to graceing our city with their presence. Only took them 600 shows to get around to it, but hey better late than never!

    I probably listened to this at least a few hundred times last week. I still don't know what it's meant to be, but it sounds like someone tried to sing after dental surgery.

    To be fair, I'd probably sound like that if I'd tried to sing after performing dental surgery on someone, too.

    Music at [current time] is:

    Home now, and last day of work done for a weird year. A good one for me personally, but a tumultuous one for the world at large. Sending love from the Pacific Coast.

    Well, now that we officially have a complete douche for a president, why not another persnickety vintage homage:

    Gorillaz and The Arcade Fire both released songs to commemorate the occasion, and both of those songs are sort of terrible, actually.

    Here's Sofi Tukker doing some catchy dark tuneage instead.

    'kay 'kay, listened to a bunch of it. Some very good songs in there, and Say No to This is one of the best, plus the story's easy to follow since it's a musical. It has that unself-conscious aura that whatshisface, Webber's things do, of being silly/self-important/serious all at the same time that I'm not a fan of, but I fancy it's a lot of fun to watch instead of just listening to.

    Yay!

    I think I see what you mean by "unself-concious aura". When you hear about the concept of "a hip-hop musical about founding father Alexander Hamilton" you probably imagine something sillier and more tounge-in-cheek than what it actually is. But I love how straight it plays it, and I love the tone it strikes. If it had gone sillier, it wouldn't be able to pull off a lot of it's best, most touching moments (towards the end of act 2, you'll know you've found it when tears start uncontrollably streaming down your face).

    I've been listening to a lot of musicals lately and I'm finding that this isn't always the case. With a lot of them it feels like most of the story happens inbetween the songs, so you don't really understand it from just listening to the album. But my faves: Hamilton, Wicked, and The Book of Mormon are all really good at keeping the story developments in the songs. Hamilton having originally been planned to be a concept-album, not a play, probably helped too.

    Fair enough, if there's story between the songs then the soundtrack's not going to be as cohesive as a production that's all songs, wall-to-wall.

    I'll have to check out those other two you mentioned, but I need to get Hamilton out of my head now first. While it does a good job of fusing its exposition and banter with catchy tunes, the moment it turns introspective/forgoes exposition for character beats, it soars. While Say No to This was great, I think the standout track on it is Satisfied. It's beautifully done and just a little heartbreaking, and the bigger achievement is while it depicts something probably entirely fictitious compared to reality, all of it rings true as something pure and heartfelt.
