You guys, I was really, really convinced that this song premiered yesterday, and was so sure I was going to combust in anticipation. Especially when I was searching for a stream or rip, not finding one, and thinking that the internet had failed us all. But it's here now, and life is great.

You know, I didn't realize that their Twitter handle was @beaccchhoussse. Maybe that person at that festival was actually just confused.

Wait, this is out the same week as the new Beach House album? Daaaamn, that is going to be a week. Also, I was kinda surprised by the gothic tinge this song has... brings me back to The Waves... I wasn't expecting that from what we've heard so far. The end bit reminds of "Paradise Place" by Siouxsie and The Banshees too, which is not a bad thing at all.

June 27, 2015 on New Beach House Single “Sparks” Out Next Week
I would read the heck out of that feature. I loved how Mitski knew all the music biz news about Jepson and things like that, and Hemsworth was just like "Oh I hate this, who does this?"

June 25, 2015 on Mitski & Ryan Hemsworth Predict The Song Of The Summer 2015
I see what you're saying, but I'm guessing you live some place with more moderate weather... A lot of the excitement over summer, to me, seems pretty influenced by where you live. Like, if I still lived in Florida, summer would be yet another time of the year where I'm just working a 9-5 all the time. Oh, except its even more hot outside, and there's the threat of hurricanes now. But up in Boston, yeah I still have to work, but at least now we're at the time of the year where I don't see 10 foot tall tunnels of snow everywhere, and it doesn't take me 5 minutes to get ready to go outside, what with the jackets and boots and all. Oh, and sunlight! There's more of that too, since the sun doesn't set at like 4 pm. I think that attitude winds up coming through a lot too in the media, since a lot of media outlets like Stereogum are based in NY or other places that get really excited about warm weather since they go through similar crap the rest of the year.

Well, if nothing else, at least we seem to consistently have a group of commenters on here talking about how Sundfør should be getting more accolades...

June 17, 2015 on The 50 Best Albums Of 2015 So Far
Huh, and here I was like, "But no, didn't some new Cold Cave songs come out not too long ago?"... turns out that in the post for “Nausea, The Earth And Me” someone posted a comment saying this compilation came out last year, and the post for "Don't Blow Up the Moon" went up in the fall of 2013. I guess Tom is slacking... or! Or! Wait! 3 posts about Full Cold Moon... the last post had one comment... and the prior post was from 2013, and 2014 - 2013 = 1... Guys...! Guys... ...yeah, ok, you get it.

Holy shit, this is great. This is the best thing she's done since Celebrity Skin-era Hole, y/y?

May 19, 2015 on Courtney Love – “Miss Narcissist”
I wasn't even paying attention to Keith Urban, I was too transfixed by how odd it looks that JLo's arm is draped around Ryan Seacrest when they all appear to be photoshopped together from different pictures. I wonder who/what she really had her arm around...

It's just an adorable picture all around. Not gonna lie, it's kinda why I clicked on this article.

(Hmm, well, I'm not sure if ♡kitty♡ actually calls herself a feminist, with her I was just thinking of the article she wrote about the double standards around the Danny Brown sexual assault thing at once of his concerts a little while back. I definitely gained a lot of respect for her after that.)

April 25, 2015 on Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry Responds To Misogynist Trolls: “Bring It On, Motherfuckers”
Yeah, on one hand I love that there seem to be more female voices in music these days speaking out against all the crap they face, and proudly identifying as feminist... people like Mayberry, Grimes, Janelle Monáe, ♡kitty♡, Anna Calvi, etc... and even male feminist allies, like the guy from Default Genders. It's so inspiring to hear, and to see people using their spotlight like that. But on the other hand, it's kind of depressing to hear their stories of how they became feminist, or became more outspoken about it, since so much of it seems to come out of all the obstacles they face in the music industry.

April 25, 2015 on Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry Responds To Misogynist Trolls: “Bring It On, Motherfuckers”
Yeah, but how great was the episode where you actually find out who Laura's killer was? Definitely one of the last good episodes that show had. Also, totally unrelated to 311*, but tonight I am going to a Twin Peaks-themed alternative gay club night. There's nothing about that that does not sound amazing to me. *(Or... is it??**) **(Yeah, it's really not.)

April 25, 2015 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
Hmmm. Reading through these comments, it keeps bothering me that we're pretty much just discussing this through the lens of People on the Internet. I know that there are those instances of kids saying dumb shit because of anonymity etc etc etc, and that you all are aware of, and not dismissing, horrible things that happen off of the internet... but I don't know, I keep thinking back about the things that Kathleen Hannah has said about the Bikini Kill days... how at *every* concert there were guys yelling at them to take off their shirts, how often people threw things at them, made threats to them, the times where they just flat out were not safe going back to their van after a gig, shit like that. Yeah, maybe it's not as absurdly hyperbolic as what that person said to Mayberry on Twitter, but it's still awful. And to me, it all seems connected. I'm wondering if all this focus on the internet trolling aspect is glossing over the very real hatred and misogyny that it sounds like does get directed in Mayberry's way. I know you all have been having a very respectful and well thought out conversation, so maybe you don't think it's been glossed over? But I just had to say my piece (and I guess, really, this ties into LeMonjello's question about whether comments like the one above are really symptomatic of the misogyny within our society)... especially since stories like the ones above remind me that as a dude who tries to be in touch with feminist issues and the crap women face, I may think I have a small idea of what it's like, but there's still a lot of shit that goes on that I just have no idea about. Also! There's still the thing Caitlin pointed out in her post about how empowering Mayberry speaking out on these things is. So even if the people who spew these online comments never learn (which Mayberry does acknowledge to some extent), there's still a lot of value in that. So seriously, fucking hats off to her.

Thanks for putting the "Chile out" part in there for those of us too thick headed to not get it before then. (Um, that might come across as sarcastic, but no, really.)
