Naqiy Rudolph Mcmullen
I follow him on Twitter and never quite knew what his deal was besides being hilarious. I appreciate the biographical info that gives some relevant context, thanks for the write up, definitely will check this out.
My album of the week is Slow Club – Complete Surrender, and it didn’t even get a mention! That’s that bullshit.
Awful lot of pop songs on the list. Not trying to be rockist, but there are multitudes of indie jams that are way better than Summer or Fancy. If you had to include an few obligatory EDM songs, y’all could of at least included Sky Full Of Stars. Also I voted for Jealous( I Ain’t With It), but I’m about as confident that Seasons(Waiting On You) will win the poll as Hillary will win in 2016, i.e. very confident.
Glad to hear they’re being as experimentally catchy as ever; idk know about that Miley sample tho, seems like it doesn’t serve much purpose beside being click baity.
I think this great news; it shows great music still can still sell with a little verve and marketing. The mission is for us music nerds to save the music industry, if we choose to accept it.
My favorite Ultraviolence song is” Brooklyn Baby”.
Woo, I love mid-year list season! I think it’s been a great year for music so far even if nothing has blown me away. Great list Stereogum, nothing is conspicuously absent and great if obvious choice for #1. I’m sure debates will ensue regardless tho.
Pains Of Being Pure at Heart- Eurydice
Y’all a bunch a haters. The Yung Biebs has blessed us with some undeniable pop classics and we should gives thanks. Believe was a top 10 album of 2012 of mine, along with former Stereogum alumi Corban Goble. No wonder he slid away from y’all close minded rockists. This song is pretty good, too.
Apple didn’t forget about Dre, apparently.
