September 21, 2016 on Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon Explains His Deal With The Number 22
He's really a legend. I listen to tons of American primitive, but his playing is on another level. An incredible amount of power there –– it's hard to describe. Other people seem like they're working with it, but it's as if Jack was the boss of the thing.

Not punning, actually serious here: It's crazy that this documented history of domestic abuse had fallen so far off the radar that apparently no one balked at the idea of Dre calling his headphones "Beats."

I'm been jamming Dr. Ragtime and His Pals –– great shit. And I just noticed there's a new Dan Bachman record coming in November, so I'm looking forward to that.

I still jam: Mount Eerie - Wind's Poem Cass McCombs - Catacombs Neko Case - Middle Cyclone Japandroids - Post-Nothing Sunset Rubdown - Dragonslayer And BO>MPP>V but never liked V much and was worn out on the other two by 2012.

Those prices are crazy. Did the venue confuse Bon Iver with Bon Jovi?

Why is everyone drinking seltzer? Seltzer is a garbage beverage. Just drink water. It's refreshing. Seltzer is pointless fizzy bullshit. WAKE UP SHEEPLE

September 15, 2016 on Chainsmokers Singer Explains Why They Sounded Like Shit At The VMAs: “I Was Set Up To Fail”
I'm usually pretty confident that Trump will lose –– the electoral math just isn't in his favor, and I think once we get closer to election day more folks will come to their senses. But after reading about these shitheads and listening to their terrible yet inexplicably popular music, I'm newly convinced that Trump has a legit shot. It's terrifying.

Or maybe Slow Joey. He never liked Slow Joey.

September 14, 2016 on Kid Cudi Calls Out Kanye And Drake In Tweetstorm
Nothing hammers home how young Tupac was when he died like the fact that when sketching out his ideal restaurant he started not with the menu, but specific instructions to label the bathrooms "Divaz" and "Playaz."

Not sure what any of this has to do with Next. But FYI, Rated Next turns 20 in September 2017. I anticipate Stereogum will offer some close –– maybe even too close –– analysis of that one.

If anything, it's the best Timbaland-produced album where the primary artist is smashing something on the cover. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/a6/Scream2.jpg/220px-Scream2.jpg

Desiigner may not have had a gun, but the driver had two! To clarify, I'm suggesting the driver's steroid use endowed him with bulging arm muscles. Colloquially, "guns."

A typewriter? Were they traveling to the studio on a penny farthing?

According to genius it's "my guessing game is strong." Way less hilarious.

September 9, 2016 on Lady Gaga – “Perfect Illusion”
Seriously thought she was saying "moccasin game is strong" in that first verse. Would have been a cool character detail, but oh well.

I'd ask the next person who thinks it's a novel idea to cover "Fast Car" to "Give Me One Reason" it's a good idea. We're not "Talkin' 'bout a Revolution" here. And those are the only Tracy Chapman songs I know so I guess that's the end of that joke.

September 8, 2016 on The Long Journey Of “Fast Car”
I think it's a pretty grabby album. I'd argue that "Random Name Generator" and "Magnetized" are top 25 Wilco songs.

September 7, 2016 on Premature Evaluation: Wilco Schmilco
I sort of despite the idea of "event" albums at this point, so this more low key approach is pretty refreshing. And I think the looseness suits them well. Star Wars is probably one of my five favorite Wilco albums, and Schmilco sounds pleasant so far. The self-seriousness of these protracted album rollouts and hype cycles almost makes me nauseous sometimes, and even causes me to dislike albums I would have otherwise enjoyed because I find the narrative so irritating. There's something about coming to like an album on your own terms and not because everyone is breathlessly rushing to anoint it as a classic that's rewarding, and increasingly hard to find what with the blogosphere and all that. To sum up: death to the event release, Wilco is still great.
