Yesssssssss. It’s so nice to hear another studio version of these songs, though I keep expecting her to surprise release the new EP. She did say in an article from the beginning of June that it should be out within two months, and aside from that, has been very quiet about the release date…

While I hate the bullshit that went into the origin of this song, this is a hell of a spectacular fuck you.

Not gonna lie, I’m kinda jealous of this advanced copy of the new Tamaryn album you all seem to have floating around Sgum HQ.

Thanks for sharing, James, and for such a compelling and thought-provoking read.

At least they’ve got a new sketch overlay to use on all their album and promotional artwork?

July 27, 2015 on Disclosure – “Omen” (Feat. Sam Smith) Video

I was wondering that too, but I figure that the good ol’ Sgum staff must have decided that there was no point in trying to fight against my “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” for song of the summer.
At least in my mind that’s what happened.

“(Apparently all of the comics are issue #1 because Marvel is rebooting their universe in a new Secret Wars crossover. Yeah, comic books, man.)”

I mean, yes, the issues are all #1s because there’s a reboot, but also because it’s been like 10 months or whatever since they last slapped #1s everywhere, so.
Yeah, comic books, man indeed.

On first blush, I don’t know if I agree with “instantly familiar.” Yeah, there are familiar sounds on the album that are reminiscent of Teen Dream/Bloom or Devotion, but most of the songs have different sonic elements added in that helps differentiate this album from its predecessors, definitely more than Bloom differentiated itself from Teen Dream (I’m with you on that point, Bloom was kind of like a clone). I feel like what James said in his write up about “Spark” applies to this album, it’s more full of little evolutions than grand leaps forward.

Even if I hadn’t read mr. mayonaise’s comment below before responding, I would point out that Jett’s response is pretty damn :/

July 9, 2015 on Runaways Bassist Speaks For The First Time About Being Raped By Kim Fowley In Front Of Her Bandmates

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.

July 1, 2015 on Beach House – “Sparks”

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

July 1, 2015 on Beach House – “Sparks”

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.
