Was just going to say, the dream of the '90s is very alive.

"Tree by the River" is probably my favorite Iron & Wine song.

August 22, 2017 on Album Of The Week: EMA Exile In The Outer Ring
Wow, this is going to be a full week. War on Drugs, Queens, Action, (Thee) Oh Sees, Iron & Wine, and one that I hope doesn't go under the radar: Turnover. The Turnover singles have been incredible.

Is it weird that I could definitely use some new T-Swift in my life right now?

August 21, 2017 on James Murphy Implies He Ended LCD Soundsystem On A Lark To Drive MSG Ticket Sales
I definitely understand the knocks against him here, and the sentiment that Murphy's full of himself. But, as has already been mentioned here, it really just comes down to the music for me. If American Dream is good, I think it's all worth it. If it's lackluster, I think it's *still* worth it because more people got to see them on tour. I'm sorry for the people that paid a ton for the MSG show, but even now with the comeback, it had to have been an incredible show at the time. I never got a chance to see them before, so when I saw them last year, it was an incredibly moving experience. I've never cried at a concert before, but when "All My Friends" played, I couldn't find back tears. It's still all worth it for me.

I find myself grotesquely fascinated with this fight even though I hate boxing and hate both participants. If I were the Killers, I would definitely not want to be associated with something like this, but that's just me.

A bit much to have a whole venue solely dedicated to one hit album rife with cultural appropriation, but "You Can Call Me Al" is pretty fun though.

I appreciate the transparency, and definitely feel for what they're going through without Phife. It's gotta be hard. And I'm also glad they're not trying to make excuses and recognize how much it sucked for the people that were excited to see them. Because it really sucked, man. I paid a lot of money, and the overwhelming reason I did was because I would get to see ATCQ. When they say about their Red Rocks show that they were playing not to a "mixed crowd of festival patrons but to a filled house of solely Questers," that throws shade at the festival-goers that ARE "Questers." I definitely get it. If I were them, I would *much* rather perform for true fans at my own concert than at a festival with lukewarm hipsters, but not everyone at a festival fits that bill. Anyway, don't mind me, just trying to comment through it. I'm glad they addressed the situation.

August 15, 2017 on A Tribe Called Quest Explain Why They Missed Outside Lands
Was just thinking about how incredible "Sleeping Ute" is. Full of twists and turns, and Rossen's voice is awesome.

I can't begin to express how disappointing this was. They're the reason I bought a Friday ticket. At least Fleet Foxes was excellent.

Pretty close, a partly cloudy 61 degrees. Those microclimates are really something.

Currently chilling at Outside Lands right now. Just saw Hamilton Leithauser, who, I'd like to reiterate, has an incredible voice. Post-cheesesteak, I'm now sitting through a mediocre Electric Guest set biding my time until Noname. Then time to get a good spot for A Tribe Called Quest, after which ill race to catch the last 75% of Fleet Foxes, and then stand in the back for Gorillaz. There's no better to place to have a festival than Golden Gate Park.

I will literally only watch a 20 minute YouTube video if John Oliver or Vince Staples is in it.

You're using this photo in defense of the DJ? Interesting decision.

Sounds like a Jimmy Buffett album, which I'm sure Jams would love.

Stereogum is the best because of the writing and the community, but Paste's "best of" lists always more accurately reflect my specific tastes.
