Harsh. Perhaps you need accept the possibility of a song so memorable that it's not even physically possible to remember it.

February 1, 2016 on Animal Collective – “Lying In The Grass”
Those Robyn songs are also massively popular in the gay (male*) scene. And not that the music in the gay scene is actually much better than music you'll hear elsewhere... it's still largely crappy Top 40 pop music, but on rare occasion songs like "Dancing On My Own" or "212" blow the fuck up. *(Perhaps also the lesbian scene? But that's a thing I know a lot less about.)

January 22, 2016 on Will “Indie Pop” Ever Become Pop, Period?
I guess you guys aren't feeling optimistic about Kelela's full length coming out soon? She had mentioned that she was expecting to drop it in 2016, but she said this a whiles back (I think around the time that "A Message" came out). Granted, I haven't seen any mention of it in a while, so :/

(Well these formatting changes didn't work out to my advantage... I swear this looked like less of a mess before I hit Submit.)

December 9, 2015 on The Gummy Awards: Vote For The Best Music Of 2015
Album: Empress Of - Me EP: Kelela - Hallucinogen Song: Kelela - "Rewind" / Purity Ring - "begin again" (ok, I didn't vote for two, but I'm cheating) Moment... er, Moments: -That time I finally succeeded in getting the timing right so that "Levitation" played while my plane was taking off for BWI (Baltimore airport). I wound up flying into or out of BWI several times this fall, and started getting in the habit of listening to Beach House on the plane, and made an unsuccessful attempt or two to play "Levitation" at lift off. The song just hits me right in the feels, and once the timing worked out, there was something so perfect about listening to this song talking about going off into the unknown and coming to grips with your mortality, while staring out the window and sailing off into the unknown of the evening sky and the excitement of traveling, while enclosed in this relatively little tube of metal so high up... -That time FKA twigs announced a new EP--barely more than half a year after releasing an album--by dropping a next level banger, with a video where she gives birth to a bunch of colorful scarves that turn into dancers and then proceed to have a motherfucking vogue ball in the motherfucking woods... and all the time after that I maaaay have spent trying to vogue around my apartment to that song... -Grimes' vocals on "Kill v. Maim," especially the pre-chorus and chorus bits, what with the hyper-Valley Girl/cutesy cheerleading going straight into screaming going straight into that "Eh, I don't behave, I don't behave, oh eh" knock out of a vocal. That shit is delightfully cray. Lyric That Most Often Got Stuck In My Head Where I Became Irrationally Afraid That I Would Start Singing It Out Loud Without Realizing And It Would Be Super Awkward: -"So get off my areola (olaaaaaaa,), get off my areooolaaa"

I don't know, I feel like the instrumental part of this is fairly distinctive. Yeah, they've been on a disappointingly mainstream trajectory, but, production differences aside, this song at least strikes me as less pedestrian than anything off of Bitter Rivals, or that Tink collab.

December 7, 2015 on Sleigh Bells – “Champions Of Unrestricted Beauty”
Yeah, I was totally having a MIND. BLOWN moment seeing that enough people knew who Hiatus Kaiyote was for them to get nominated. I did not know this was a thing. And Flying Lotus...?! That was not something I ever expected to see...

December 7, 2015 on Here Are The 2016 Grammy Nominations
I didn't really get a chance to go through the comments and see what everyone else put, but I'm gathering from dansolo's rankings below that Tamaryn's Cranekiss did not get much, or any representation. "Last" and "Hands All Over Me" are great places to start. (I would probably really rank Empress Of's Me a little higher, but it got a little more coverage on this site what with getting AOTW, so.)

Daaaaaangit, it's been a busy week so I didn't get a chance to comment with mine. Oh well. I'm glad to see that 8 other people voted for the HEALTH album though. Also, thanks for doing this! It's such a great idea, and different enough from SG's list to merit creating a new playlist...

Yeah, for item #3 I'm still lobbying for an email notification option that can be toggled off if people don't want to be hassled by email. (Cos I would like to be hassled by email.)

December 4, 2015 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
I'd actually like to have the option to get emails if someone replies to your comment, and never understood why that hasn't been a thing here or on Videogum (R.I.P.)...

December 3, 2015 on How Will Adele’s Astronomical Sales Influence The Music Industry?
I used it from time to time. I didn't really get much email from them, pretty much only when someone liked my jam or left a comment, so maybe you just got way, way more plays/love than I did (not a hard feat), or I disabled more of the notifications than you did. Even though I was not a die hard user, I miss that place, but at least they had a classy end... I like that they gave everyone well over a month to keep posting jams before shutting it off, were very good about letting people know that they could remove their accounts or change things before archiving the site, and the archive itself is really nice. On the users' side, the sense of community that was there in the last days was great too.

"I’d definitely consider using stars again in the future." You know, prior to this I had never really put much thought into what I put on my tombstone, but here we are.

Yesssss, that is one tract of poptimism I could get behind. And also, The Silicone Veil you guys. So good. (Though admittedly less poppy than Ten Love Songs.)

November 21, 2015 on Premature Evaluation: Adele 25
Oh wow, that is a lot of new material! It looks like there are longer clips online for two of the songs now... though I'm sure there had to be more people recording... https://youtu.be/Ep89J3-tEGM https://youtu.be/HkzEl0yKtdc
