I’m just here to report that the new Moonface EP is great. Because of course it is.

Close, but this is actually the initial offering in the new Stereogum feature, “This Week in Popping Pills.”

This is why capitalism doesn’t work.

People are too hard on Grimes. And they should know better not to push anyone named Grimes too far.

I listened to half of it. I then Googled “how do I get this U2 album out of my iTunes/life?”

A nice write up, and indeed a great album; already one of my favorites so far this year.

This all sounds like a hilarious/terrifying neoliberal fever dream.

Ah, the classic “freedom of speech!”/ “I’m just being real, man!”/ “everyone is too politically correct these days!” posturing that some think passes for a coherent ideology. Like the fellow who tries too hard to be provocative in your Intro to Philosophy class or Eminem circa 1999, Ariel’s just honoring a tried and true smug white guy tradition here. Edgy!

This was a silly joke, but on closer examination it’s scary how these conceivably could be lyrics from a recent Weezer song.

Turns out they are scrapping iPhones 6-13 and introducing the iPhone catorce.
