That annoys the crap out of me every time. And i hear it probably 5 times a day at work.
Basically as long as an artist hasn’t been nominated before, they are eligible. Lady Gaga had been nominated before her big breakout so she wasn’t nominated for Best New Artist.
This isn’t her best work but she’s actually really talented and writes smarter songs than a lot of other people who get more love. shes quite a singer too:
Happiness is a Warm Gun
But in all honesty, it’s quite the lovely cover.
Vertical video? I didn’t realize Lou Barlow was my dad.
Caitlin Rose – The Stand-In
Didn’t expect it to get any Sterogum love. I was right.
my thought exactly. glad we agree on Kanye and farm raised beef.
This reminded me of two things:
1. I need to listen to The Next Day more
2. Marion Cotillard is ridiculously attractive
Do we have to assemble his guitar and amps before he takes the stage?
I listened to MMJ since they first started up but they never really struck me until Z. For me, I can’t understand why someone would like the pre-Z albums more than post-Z. the artistry and eclecticism from that point forward is nearly unmatched in music as a whole, nonetheless in their catalog.
The vibe of the video matches the vibe of the the song perfect. And man, I love this song. I didn’t realize that it had been so long since they put out an album.
since we can all agree that Lua is a great song, how do we feel about the version with Gillian Welch? I think I may actually like that version better.
i was worried that “with arms outstretched” wasn’t going to make the top 10 but man am i thrilled to see it get the respect. Its my absolute favorite song.
I don’t get why his album is getting so slagged. Sure, it isn’t as good as his last record, but its 10x better than most of the rap that’s been receiving the plaudits that this one deserves.
This is 10 times better than anything on his record.
Also Marco Benevento, Christian Scott and Black Prairie released great instrumental (or at least mostly instrumental) records this year.
so happy to see shovels and rope on the list. great overlooked album.
and i have not seen a single one of the viral videos and wasnt willing to look them all up before voting.
Rubber Soul. I’m not of the opinion of most people that the Beatles were infallible and this is the only album of theirs that I listen to straight thru without skipping anything.
just listened to the album earlier this week and it is quite good.
the best of alton ellis on vinyl!? i love her even more now!
a good friend of mine is a finalist in this contest. i can’t imagine the prospect of being involved in such a cool thing.
no mos def? no q-tip?
