August 6, 2012 on Wavves – “Hippies Is Punks”
The pure musicianship Davis possessed gave him immense personal allowances. The jazz community to which Davis belonged is far different from the pop-radio, Chris Brown loving populous. The situation with Lennon happened after the man had become almost a nontarnishable icon, so I don't think people would've ever cast his name out into the cold. Also, The older generation of Beatles listeners aren't all aware of the Cynthia spousal abuse situation, primarily because it didn't get much media play until her book John was released in 2005. I'm pretty abashed at the fact that Chris Brown's stardom is still so solidly intact. Firstly, because he's gone through none of the necessary societal mea culpas; right after the shit with Rhianna went down he threw a chair through a window in the Good Morning America green-room. Dude hasn't done shit to prove he's changed. The physical act of beating a woman is the same in all three cases, but the way society sees things is quite different usually. There was nothing murky, or he-said she-said about the Rhianna thing. That's whats surprising about it. If he played horns like Miles Davis, or was anywhere near as interesting and legendary as Lennon I'd understand the current size of his fan base, however, he's a dude who robotizes his voice more often than not and plays bubble-gum pop. I don't think he deserves the comparison you're making. No one's arguing whether his actions were different than other musicians who've abused women. No need for strapping in, or that ellipsis.

For someone named after a sick Howard Hawks film you sure make some hare-brained comparisons.

This track is great, sounds like they found a few new synths to fuck around with since 7am. I like the production on the beat as well, pretty on-point.

Duck Sauce bettter fuckin' win. The "Big Bad Wolf" video made me eject lime pepino Gatorade outta my nose, which was a super unpleasant rarity.

At least two first names guy is rockin' the deepest of V's. No one can give him shit for being noncommittal. I think the focus of this blog is good music, and frank ocean unequivocally fits that category. Last year before MBDTF came out Yeezee was all over stereogum, and it was similarly deserved hype. I think posting the VMA nominees is in keeping with this blogs general aesthetic. The NME and Rolling Stone years end lists are always posted here as well, and I kinda like that; it's good to be made aware of what's happening with artists that are part of multiple social spheres and stuff.

This is catchy as fuck! "Gotham" was pretty hard for me to get into, and "I thought "Honeycomb" sounded pretty fuckin goofy, but this gives me all sorts of hope.

This is awesome! Frank Ocean has never looked more comparatively laid-back.

July 30, 2012 on Lana Del Rey Covers Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box,” Trolls The Universe
You're afraid of Nirvana's music dying? Nirvana is not among the bands I'm worried will die, they are still enormous as fuck. I'm kinda worried Jay Reatard's cover of that song "Frances Farmer will have her revenge on seattle" will be forgotten after a while. But I think Nirvana is gonna last a couple more generations, at least.

If we stop incessantly gabbing about her I'm pretty certain she'll melt like the wicked witch of the west! She'll just be a weird puddle with lips floating on top of it.

This is potentially my favorite stereogum list. You shoulda replaced the word vicious with brutal though; that seems obvious.

June 22, 2012 on Deadmau5 Is The Best EDM Artist, Says Deadmau5
I feel like the vocal should alternate major and minor with the chords it sits sonically in front of, whish is actually the way the melody on the vocal would sound if it hadn't been run through a transformer an stuff. His voice natural vocal qualities lend themselves exceptionally well to pop, but that gets buried in production. If you listen to live recordings of All Our Cymbals you really hear how the studio stripped the humanity out of songs like no need to worry. This is purely my opinion though.

June 21, 2012 on Yeasayer – “Longevity”
This isn't nearly as dynamic and interesting as "Henrietta". The vocal oscillation in the beginning is super boring, shit should change between minors and majors instead of all major roots. Slightweight disapointed

June 21, 2012 on Yeasayer – “Longevity”
Damn, this is great. That press conference was potentially the funniest thing I've ever seen! Some old white dude saying "Ross reminded me earlier that he has the biggest office in the world, it's called the streets." Also, I love that it always takes a few tries to get a lighter lit during hip-hop intros.

lol, what an unnecessary and mean response. Why would you write that? My dad's 60, just got through a hella tough bout with cancer, and is a jovial as fuck Brendan Gleeson lookin ass mufucka with a real thick Welsh accent. I thought he had a hilarious response to the SNL performance, if you didn't just don't fuckin comment on it asshead.

You're so severely confused. Literal tens of thousands of people (sometimes way more) watch SNL; she got mostly poor reviews. It's not just weird 16 year olds hating, she disappointed hella people of every demographic. Her SNL debut was pretty much universally deemed whack. You don't need to know everything about a performers life to know when they suck. The blogosphere's vocalization represents the huge number of people who didn't like that performance, and the infinitesimal number that did.
