I love how the last sentence of this article is a self-critic: "Intent is one thing. Execution is another".

So the fact that all this happen in a Lana del Rey gig is the reason it deserved a place in Stereogum. Talking about slow weeks.

That's a classic Norm Macdonald line, come on. Don't be a battle axe! :-)

"Dylan played guitar for the first time since 2012" is probably a tiny little bit exaggerated.

Boy, that 22, A Million really dominated my week. I would never thought Bon Iver would end up releasing my AOTY.

God damned, I really like that record, but judging by this Mike D should remix all the tracks.

311 in my book is 111111. Now 1+1+1+1+1+1 is 6 and 3+1+1 is 5, therefore 6-5=1. There can be only one.

All works for me, thank God! Congrats, Tom: great idea, entertaining intros, and strong ranking. I had completely forgotten that this Cypher series existed!

So I finally received today my special edition of A Moon Shaped Pool. Two things. One: the artwork really explodes in all its elusive beauty in this format. It's not only the size, but the quality of the printing and the additional paintings from Doonwood. I was very critical of the artwork when I bought the CD, but now I see I was wrong. Two: on CD, Spectre is the most beautiful song ever recorded by Radiohead.

Kelly, what a joy to be able to read something from you again. I hope Stereogum will cherish your idiossincratic allure.

It will only be available on November. I do not understand that. The same thing happened with Blood Orange. Why make people wait so damned long?

Word. Between this one, Kanye's, Radiohead's, Blood Orange's and Solange's, the struggle is pretty fierce in my mind.

What the heck was Fallon holding in his hands? Was that a vinyl of Colouring Book? Or just a print? I obviously admire his stance towards not selling his music, but why take away the opportunity from old silly men like me to buy it if I want it? God knows how much I have felt the absence of an official vinyl ou CD of his albums to put on my stereo. Painful.

October 3, 2016 on Gone Is Gone – “Sentient”
Spent the whole weekend listening to the album and I'm completely floored. She has really found her voice, which makes comments such as that Aaliyah comparison (which is spot on, by the way) so unfair when commenting this amazing achievement. It really does not sound like anything else I have heard this year and, the same time, it filled a void that I didn't know existed in what has been such an incredible 2016. I don't see myself listening to anything else this week. And god know how I was eager to put my teeth on the new Danny Brown.
