Show Notes

On the forty-fifth episode of Audioface:

New albums: J. Cole's "KOD", Lord Huron's "Vide Noir", and A Perfect Circle's "Eat The Elephant".

Sean and Dan are back to break down a big week in music. SOPHIE and a member of the Horrors collab on a track, and Ariana Grande releases her first single since the Manchester terror attack. #Beychella happened. Vince Staples may have ended R. Kelly's career, while Kendrick Lamar may have the best rap career of all time. J. Cole has many opinions, and some rap fans are very angry about them. Guitar Center is going out of business, EDM star Avicii dies at 28, and Prince apparently didn't know he was taking the drug that killed him. Kanye plays Twitter like a fiddle to promote new albums from himself, Pusha T, Teyana Taylor, and Kids See Ghost -- a new duo of himself and Kid Cudi. Lord Huron's latest rock alternative LP was released this week, as well as hard rock (?) supergroup A Perfect Circle's first album in more than a decade. Dan revisits his stance on #FreeMeekMill. And one repetitive producer brings another repetitive producer out of retirement.
