Processing The Darkness: The National On Their Adventurous New Album And The State Of The World
Comments from dieter lazer
What a lovely bit of cognitive dissonance. Here I am reading about how this commercial-as-fuck pop duo is dominating the music landscape as a "brand," all of which is decried as the death of actual good music and is referred to as "the Donald Trump of music"......but I can't get past the first couple of sentences because I have to take an extra moment to shut off the GIGANTIC TOYOTA COROLLA ADVERTISEMENT THAT BLOCKS OUT THE ENTIRE SCREEN. So I closed it, but then I realized that if I wanted to keep reading I would have to CLOSE THE GIGANTIC RED BULL ADVERTISEMENT THAT WAS TAKING UP PART OF THE ARTICLE SPACE. So I closed that, but then I only got about a fucking paragraph into this anti-consumerist article before I had to MUTE A FUCKING KIA CAR COMMERCIAL AD in order to continue reading the article. Seriously, fuck you Stereogum, and your blatant disregard for user experience. Yours is now a site I will only read through Pocket. Congrats.

We Are Living In The Chainsmokers’ America
Man, Jay-Z is just utterly unconcerned with artistry at this point. The dude is just unabashedly about making/having money and little else.

Marina Abramović Is Very Pissed At Jay Z
I still stand by the fact that Significant Other is a fucking GREAT record. Yeah, Durst doesn't have much to say lyrically (but holy shit, even HE manages to do some good lyrical work on a couple of tracks)...but from a musical standpoint? Significant Other is fucking on point. It's impeccably produced, sounds great, and Boreland/Rivers/Otto are just fucking killing it from start to finish. Or Intro to Outro, as you'd say in 1998.

It Sure Seems Like Neil Young’s Pono Player Is Bullshit
Fucking for real. I'm personally BLOWN AWAY that nobody has called out Kozelek for not only being such an asshole...but for using sexually violent, homophobic hates peech in so doing. I've listened to RHP and SKM for years, but fuck this guy. He's got some serious problems. And these are problems that go WELL beyond some Kanye West-ian kind of assholery. This guy's using straight-up sexual violence and hate speech.

Mark Kozelek Responds To The War On Drugs With “Adam Granofsky Blues”
Ah, very good Grimes. Exactly the right time and place to stand up for your beliefs. Is she in high school, or what?
