Public Enemy - What You Gonna Do When The Grid Goes Down?

Attention player: skill check ahead, the difficulty level is 14. Your ability will be 'Music'. Roll your d20.

20! Critical hit!

If you weren't expecting a DnD reference in a Public Enemy review, that is my exact level of surprise when I found out Public Enemy's new album was about the (lack of) internet!

I've long associated Public Enemy with The Dominion of The Nerds because entered my life when I was playing SNES or N64.

The album itself is great: hook loaded, faithfully vintage while modern, thoughtful while easy to listen to.

Also this week I've been very busy and gotten a lot out of Thurston Moore (of Sonic Youth)'s new album By The Fire
