Brown Man Says Goodbye To Stereogum, Heads To Television, Wants To Thank You

A note to future departing music bloggers: Listening to Sigur Rós while writing a goodbye post is probably a bad choice. A note to future humans on saying goodbye after nearly eight(!) years: Do it in person. That's how I tried to break this to Scott, but due to some crossed wires we wound u… More »

Stereogum Sessions: Small Black

Welcome to Stereogum Sessions, wherein we bring a video camera to the bands we love and document them in action. This episode is on location, in a basement belonging to Brooklyn's Small Black, a band we've been locked on since their earlier iteration as Slowlands, and one that's grown into a cinematic widescreen synth- and… More »

Cult Exciter – “In The Wave”

Cult Exciter is a duo with a brief bio: "from the caribbean to brooklyn, two friends work on an audio visual project." With "In The Wave" we get a sense of the aural portion, a sensual brew of spare, bottom-heavy beat production, minimal jazz horn, and a soulful female vocal carrying the weight of all… More »

Daft Punk Didn’t Play Colbert Because They’ll Appear At The MTV Video Music Awards

UPDATE: Due to the fact that Robin Thicke's performance was taped last Tuesday, at which point he made a prescient comment about Daft Punk cancelling, some have questioned whether the robots were ever scheduled to appear at all. But Colbert's report still holds up. According to NY Times negotiations between MTV and Comedy Central had… More »

This Frontier Needs Heroes – “Hooky” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

After two records based in Brooklyn, Jessica and Brad Lauretti, the siblings at the front of This Frontier Needs Heroes, shifted into a mode of long-distance collaboration for LP3: Brad headed south, to Jacksonville, FL, and Jessica staying relatively local. The space did them good, and gave them Hooky, a record retaining their folk-intoned root… More »

Comments from amrit

HI GUYS! I miss you! You are all looking mighty fine from the studio in Hollywood. Michael, this is a kind post, and yes it was a very exciting moment, as you can see in the smile that's about to split my head in two. Meanwhile, you remain the man. Let's stage our own reunion at an OutKast show. It will be very meta. (And with you present, very metal.) I wasn't sure how I'd feel visiting the 'Gum purely as a content consumer these past months, but I can say that, from this side of the divide, this place is as attractive in substance and commitment to the new (and the news) as it is in personality: A site for sore eyes. (You get it.) Contributing changed my life, and being a regular visitor enhances it immeasurably, perpetually. MISS YOU // LOVE YOU. xo, A Fan In LA

Nathan, thank you for this. My only hope that week was that the horrendous incident could be something of a turning point, and the fact that Stereogum was able to be an agent in that made me love it, and what we've built here, even more than I'd thought possible. Appreciate your engagement and the note, man. Also, this is my first comment on Stereogum as a Los Angeleno, so here's to that, and to you.

Thanks, Luke! Appreciate you taking the (endless) time to make it through all of those (many, many) words. Stereogum's a special space, happy you've found it. Best to US!

Much respect in return, donnytilla. It's hard to stay hard in light of such heartwarming words, BUT I'LL FIND A WAY.

Raptor Jesus! I remember that night, we were standing in front of Beerland. You should know that whenever I've seen your handle here, I've thought back to that night and imagined your comments being spoken out of your actual head (or how I remembered it) and this was a good thing! My overarching sense impression of you was positive, though I could see the effects of the day you'd had, which is probably why our interaction was on the shorter side. But you've always been lucid and a great community member here, so thanks for that, and thanks for being good to me. Godspeed to you, too, dude.

Truth, dreamgalaxies. That JD can take you places (even if at times it only appears like that place is in the red). Thanks for the wishes, also!
