Neutral Milk Hotel - On Avery Island Music Album Reviews

Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit the oft-overshadowed debut from indie rock icons, a smaller and more intimate look into the mercurial world of Jeff Mangum.
In the mid-’90s, Jeff Mangum moved into a haunted closet in Denver where he had dreams of women in fur coats drinking champagne, yelling at him to get out of their house. During a snowy Colorado winter, the Louisiana-born songwriter and his childhood friend Robert Schneider set about recording what would become Neutral Milk Hotel’s debut album. They worked feverishly, going out to smoke cigarettes when they hit a roadblock, until, in May of 1995, they had a finished record. The North Carolina indie label Merge scooped up the young band and quietly released On Avery Island the following March.





AMD Threadripper 2: Specs, Features & Price

AMD’s x86 Zen architecture made a huge splash into the processor market last year, perhaps the most striking to its arsenal being the first generation Threadripper processor. The second generation of Threadripper has been announced at Computex 2018 and is taking further strides forward in terms of power and scale.

The new Threadripper will feature up to 32 cores/64 threads mirroring versions of AMD EPYC’s series of enterprise solutions, although EPYC will still hold the performance crown due to its 8 memory channels compared to Threadripper’s 4.

The competition from Intel is heating up with a 28-core beast being shown off at Computex too.

We have the latest details for the Threadripper 2 right here.

AMD Threadripper 2 Release Date
Our best educated guess puts the launch date of the new Threadripper in early August, which aligns with the AMD road map that we’ve seen this year.

AMD Threadripper 2 Price
While everything is still speculation and rumour until we get the official word from AMD, CanadaComputers had a listing for the 2990WX at a spicy $1,835 (£1,400~). Judging from previous naming conventions this would be a higher end version of the Threadripper series.

AMD Threadripper 2 Motherboards
The new Threadripper series of processors will feature a peak TDP rating of 250W which is a substantial boost over the 180W we’ve seen on the 1950X. Motherboard vendors have suggested that the current generation of X399 motherbaords might struggle with the power requirements demanded by the new 32 core monster. This doesn’t mean that the current generations of boards won’t be able to house the new threadrippers, but overclocking capabilities may well be limited.

AMD Threadripper 2 Launch Date and Pricing
Our best educated guess puts the launch date of the new Threadripper in early August, which aligns with the AMD road map that we’ve seen this year.

Pricing information really would all be speculation at the moment, but I think we’re all aware that these aren’t going to be a cheap purchase. We’re guessing around the $1k mark but real information remains to be seen.

We’re also missing anything in the way of a Cinebench score from the second generation Threadripper, but considering what Intel’s 28-core super chilled beast did to Cinebench, we’re not too surprised that AMD deftly dodged putting up any of their own numbers. Thunder was probably stolen somewhere along the way.

Blue Note Records Beyond the Notes Movie Review

Hits All the Right Notes
It took me a very long time to understand that jazz wasn't meandering and boring. At some point I came around enough to at least appreciate it and even really like some of it, although I remain very far from an aficionado.
Blue Note Records is an American jazz record label established in 1939 by Alfed Lion and Max Margulis, two German-Jewish immigrants. At its outset the label was dedicated to recording traditional jazz and small group swing, but in 1947 they switched their attention to modern jazz.

Xbox Two release date rumours, design and more

Xbox Two release date rumours, design and more Microsoft’s Xbox One didn’t have the greatest launch – it was overpriced thanks to the ‘requirement’ of the Kinect (which has since been completely discontinued) and the requirement of an internet connection to function pushed many to Sony’s PS4. The console has improved substantially since launch, both in terms of features and pricing, and the introduction of the high-end Xbox One X has grabbed the interest of many.
