She actually mentioned something briefly on Twitter (I think) right before the original release date, saying that the EP wasn’t all there yet, so she was pushing it back so she could tinker with it more. Not sure why that news didn’t get out there a little more though, it somehow took me forever to find that out.

September 2, 2015 on Kelela – “Rewind”

a) T. Cole interviews ARE the best.
b) Shirley fucking Manson is also still the best.
c) I have tickets to see Garbage on this tour just because a friend asked if I wanted to go, but OMG how did I not know that they’re playing their debut album in full, with all the b-sides and all??? That is AMAZING.

Well, uh… he does a better job with it than Scott Weiland would these days?

Seriously. :( I thought there was a really good chance of Stereogum choosing Cranekiss for AOTW.

I was there too! (Though I was a bit disappointed in the show, to be honest. I felt they were much better the last time I saw them, and I thought the sound at Lupo’s was abysmal.)

I would read the hell out of a RealLife_LDR weekly column.
Just FYI Scott.

August 19, 2015 on Anna Von Hausswolff – “Come Wander With Me/Deliverance”

It’s the name she gave to her feminine side. “Figure 8″ and some of the other songs on the album are about voguing, which she gives credit to helping her get more in touch with her femininity. She talked about this in a great interview she gave a few months back (where she also indicated that the album should be out around this time… I’m glad I’m back to having full internet access today!).

August 13, 2015 on FKA twigs Drops Surprise M3LL155X EP, 17-Minute Video

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…

August 3, 2015 on FKA Twigs – “Figure 8″

FUCK. YES.
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.

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.

July 15, 2015 on Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. Change Name To JR JR

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.
