Sorry homeslice, that sounds too similar to my Buckcherry-esque rap\rock band, Satan's Cunnalingus. You'll be hearing from our lawyers.

This isn't even music snob shit. I'll admit that one of the most played songs on my ipod the last few months has been Not For Long by B.o.B. and Trey Songz. But there really isn't anything about Jepson that deserve this level of attention. She doesn't make music that stands out or is above par, she doesn't have an interesting persona or star quality, and she doesn't even have cultural clout. Someone said it well in another thread: if this were pre-internet times she would have faded to one-hit wonder status a couple years ago and no one would have cared.

To a point I agree with you. People that don't like country should just admit it rather than try to give the genre artistic merit by pretending to like the classics. If it's not your thing, it's not your thing; let someone who's into it critique it. But I'll back them up that Cash and Hank Williams Sr and Buck Owens are very different entities than Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryant, Jason Aldean, and (ugh) Florida Georgia Line. I'd say it's fair game to have an affection for older styled country but hate on modern country, because there are plenty of country music fans that don't know or care for older country. A lot of my friends only listen to (double ugh) country radio but fucking hate if I put on Charlie Rich. I always compare modern top-40 country to modern rock or hair metal. We all know that Led Zeppelin were great, but Three Days Grace and Bon Jovi suck.

Maybe it's just upstate NY but everywhere I go I hear that damn Walk the Moon song. Also this Carly Rae Jepson thing is getting a little creepy Stereogum. It's one thing to strangely push it on us over the internet, but to keep repping her this hard to other musicians, I'm actually starting to think you sincerely enjoy her music. And Call Me Maybe has not aged well.

I'm loving Bully and Desaparecidos, but I'm commenting to address the article about mixradio since I can't comment there. This "Staff" guy or gal you've got writing for you is a revelation. It really feels like he/she speaks from the heart and can be trusted to have a sincere, unbiased opinion.

I got to see White Reaper and Twin Peaks in NYC a month or two ago and when I left I knew they were two of the heir apparent of the garage rock scene.

June 22, 2015 on White Reaper – “Pills”
I've been jamming this song pretty hard for a while. There are so many great young bands in Minnesota right now.

This is one of my go-to albums if I just want to hear some great musicians play some loud, weird, fun alt/punk rock. My roommates fucking hate it.

Your list is much more in line with my taste, but I feel like it would be easier to classify the band by going 1-4 for their first and last 4 albums. Honorary #1 spot to Chulahoma. 1) Rubber Factory / Brothers 2) Thickfreakness / El Camino 3) The Big Come Up / Attack & Release 4) Magic Potion / Turn Blue The 2s and 3s are completely interchangeable to me, but I will always say the 1s are required listening and the 4s are skippable. Rubber Factory is one of the best pure blues rock albums and Brothers is one of the best produced and written rock albums of the century.

I wasn't much of a fan of their newest release, but In the Mountain In the Clouds is a brilliant album.

"And as it turns out, “Maneater” is a pretty awesome song when it’s done like this." Are you implying that it's not typically a fucking great song? Because that's just a ridiculous thing to say.

June 9, 2015 on Lower Dens – “Maneater” (Hall & Oates Cover)
I was really not feeling this song when it first came out but god damn it bangs. Can't say it' makes me as excited for his album as Down On My Luck, but it'll be on my car bumpin' rotation all summer.

It's not incredible, but it's quite good. A big step up from the last couple Black Keys albums.

Jeez la weez this is just the most badass thing I've heard in a long time. I never would have imagined that anyone could make this song sound so punk.

I can't speak to the rest of the military, but I can tell you that no one should blindly respect the Navy because most of us do nothing.

Oh man I can't explain how happy this makes me. The first vinyl I ever bought was this guy's first single. Can always rely on him for some summer jamz.

May 26, 2015 on Oberhofer – “Memory Remains” (Stereogum Premiere)
The write up made this seem way more interesting than it was. The effects were super cheesy, which really wouldn't matter if it weren't that there was obviously some serious money put into it. Plus they pretty much just showed a bunch of really short clips of famous people (honestly not many were even recognizable) and figured interspersing that with random Hunger Games, Divergent, Kill Bill type stuff would make for a spectacle. If there was ever a point I was worried about the 'gum taking money to push some product it would probably be this. Also, how come we get these lame Kendrick verses on a weak song but we can't get those freaking Captain Murphy/FlyLo and Kendrick collabs?

I'm sorry but all I could think after clicking the 21-pilots article link was how bad I am at imagining what all the Stereogum staff look like. Next thing you know, Scott won't be a Phil Collins doppelganger.

In honor of how well it went over when I CRUSHED it at karaoke last night, All These Things That I've Done by the Killers. Or Humpty Dance by Digital Underground.
