i build a whole website to help me discover new music and here i find myself just listening to the spotify disco playlist again, smh
that said, i think the notifications popup is a lil annoying to glance at - i don't like the "red-dot" design and i'm going to try to come up with a better display. i think the easy way for this to work is a box over the feed that shows 3 or so notifications inline, with a "show more" button to pop the modal for more. that way most of the time you just see the notifications and can move on instead of getting the red dot nag which we all hate
i've added a thing to jam buds so you get a notification when someone likes a thing you posted. the logic for it is weirdly complex! it has to account for 3 different thing types (songs, albums, mixtapes) and 3 different like sources (posts via feed or profile, likes, and songs in mixtapes). it is, of course, very undertested, because i am too lazy to cover all the unit testing scenarios. please don't break it and enjoy the engagement endorphins from knowing someone liked your things
test post, but real jam moved jam buds from server-to-server, among other infrastructural changes. let me know if anything seems even more broken than normal.
this was the song i added bandcamp support to post but they since added it to spotify so shrug
jam buds now supports bandcamp a bit - if you paste in a bandcamp track/album URL, it should work ok it'll cross-reference spotify/apple music if it's an album or if the song has an isrc code set on bandcamp (not many do unfortunately). hoping to add song cross-search based on title/artist soon but that's tricky to get right due to inconsistencies between listings on different platforms no inline playback for bandcamp yet either. maybe someday
i added album posts to jam buds, since i've been living a long-player life lately and all my playlists have languished
i had a real unfair kneejerk reaction to the first shame album, along with some other uk punk albums around 2018-2019 - "i already have idles, why would i need this?" maybe it's because idles disappointed me on their last album, but now i feel like i'm much more into it. also, this just sounds like a parquet courts song lmao
finally got a copy of this ep. this was my bummer jam for 2019, but i spent all of 2020 too bummed to listen to stuff like this. i'm not saying 2021 has been any fucking better but i'm finally letting myself listen to sad music again, since sometimes, sad music is pleasant when you're sad. who would have thought
almost every song on this album could be drawn out and pressed to a 12"
this has been stuck in my head for fuckin days its a curse
super weird to hear unpitched vocals from this song thanks to a remix coming out six years later!!
here's the hot take on sussudio you've all been waiting for ever since i started getting into phil collins last year: this song basically sucks but the pre-chorus is really good. unfortunately this was enough to get this song permanently stuck in my head, and now im here, in hell
