So the editors pretty much ignored what was in the comments, just so they could include these pop songs. Like, that Nico and Vinz song was in maybe a few comments, Real Estate was in dozens, but I guess that doesn’t matter. Much less Calvin Harris, Sia, Ariana Grande, and Lil Jon who also had very few nominations.
Singing in a higher register does not mean they sound similar to Queen! Writers do that with just about anyone with a high voice and it’s just lazy.
Mac Demarco -”Passing out Pieces”
Courtney Barnett -”Avant Gardner”
Tune-Yards -”Water Fountain”
Chromeo-”Over Your Shoulder”
Girl Talk/Freeway -”tolerated”
St. Vincent-”Digital Witness”
Anyone that says that awful Chandelier song makes poor life choices.
I know, people who actually think this band, Live, Offspring, all this rip off grunge mediocrity is good is genuinely shocking to me, for people who read Stereogum.
This is freaking boring. Ariana Grande is boring. The fact that pitchfork, gorilla vs bear, and stereogum stoop to raving about this is so lame.
