Hi. Welcome to Stereogum. You'll be seeing my smiling face ALOT. I like to post. All the time. About things I know little or nothing about. And then you get to read that shit. You can choose not to read it. And that's probably for the best. But rest assured that will not change the ludicrous amount of things I have to say on a vast multitude of topics. I'm glad we had this time together.

If I go to SoCal around Coachella with my current financial situation you can be assured "dim sum" will be involved. HEY-Yoooooo!!!!

He's one of those people that feels the need to punch up every fucking thing. So he does these little vocal tics constantly. It's been my complaint about him since I first became aware of him. He never just lets a good moment "happen" But for whatever reason it's really working for me on this new one. Doris and I are talking about it right now. It's less Parliament and more Sly. It suits him. I don't know how I will feel about it after today but for right now I'm diggin it.

I can tell you meeting fellow gummers is just great. I've only met RJ but it felt absolutely sublime. A bunch of the East Coast guys hook up and do shit together. We have a good community here.

Let's be honest "Settle" was a bit of a throwback to begin with. For me Sunbather, MVOTC, and Bey were the choices. Particularly since that Bey album didn't feel so worked over by focused groups for mass consumption. OH GOD I HATE YOU SO MUCH DAN.

If you ever wanna get in that headspace again I cannot suggest Mercury Rev's "Yerself Is Steam" album. The version that includes the song Carwash Hair. It's such a unique and psychedelic trip. Also, I think I might love this Childish Gambino mess. Trust me, I'm as freaked out by this as you are. He gets so close to making me really fucking angry with his constant over the top bullshit. But fuck me if I'm not loving it.

This is a very valid point. But it just makes me sad that doing a bing......bong....lol thing now feels inappropriate. I am the sad.

I did. I feel like he's a very important figure in indie rock. To me the sound is very very fresh but reminds me of what I love about indie rock. Plus he was super cool to me and my GF @ Pitchfork.

Really enjoyed the AOTY thread this year. I switched to CSH at the last second. And then came upon this exchange from May earlier today.................. dansolo(in reply to blochead) Speaking of Car Seat Headrest.... really into the new record. Been listening all day. 05/20/16 2:21 PM+8 --------------------- blochead(in reply to dansolo) (AOTY) 05/20/16 2:23 PM+4 So Padfoot was right all along. I really did make an AOTY choice earlier this year. And then 6 months later stayed true. #WillPower

Look at you!!!! Almost out of the negs. I think the rationale is all of those Suf lovers came in and initially downvoted you into oblivion. But a diet of tofu, organic green tea, and discount cigarettes can only last so long. Over the course of the day the quality red meat eating Will fans showed up and brought you back to life. Youth is being served here.

It's Will VS Suf!!! One of the most dynamic artists currently making music. Somebody that almost defies categorization. And Suf. It's good beef.

I know what Cheap Suit is getting at here. But for me the layers of Suf are harder to put into words. Will almost doesn't need to sing for me to get it. The one thing I do think that gets lost in the shuffle is even within his 17 year disadvantage I think Will is the better arranger. From 3:50 on of Maud Gone I simply cannot believe I'm listening to a kid of 23-24 years of age. It's absolutely masterful. In summation: I just flat out love CSH.

I prefer Style to Denial. I also prefer Rib Eye to New York Strip. ;)

I defer to your SoCal geographical knowledge. What's important is Will is gonna be ok.

As a kid I remember arguing with my dad that some idiot I worshipped at the time was the "coolest" And my Pop said "Son, the slang "cool" was invented for James Dean. We are done on this subject" My dad was/is wise.

that's weird......'sidering how much time you and Shia spend together. In my mind you, Shia, and Andrew Ridgely of WHAM! fame, fight crime with science, sucking ass, and a devout sense of irony.

dammit. I really thought that was this year. Since I'm here I'd like to thank James personally for my weird PC Music love. 3 years ago that would've been impossible. AND the Charli with SOPHIE EP is the EP of the year Gold medal. Sepentwithfeet taking the silver. Majical Cloudz closing out their far too short career with the bronze.

I think we can all agree that "The Void" and "Bloc's DM's" are essentially the same thing. Also, CC Dust rules. Even if AJ likes the weakest song on the EP.

Kanye may be down but he's not out. Give him a couple weeks to get himself together and I'm sure he'll finger out a response to this diss.
