Love this … and the xylophone
agreed, it’s making me nervous to stereogum at work right now
Lil Debbie is about as nimble behind the mic as Kreayshawn
Can’t like this enough
awesome, nice to see long-form journalism on Stereogum. Excited to see more of this.
brain fart, er I should have said Milk Music, but Magic Milk is a great band as well.
People’s lists are basically the same 10-20 albums in slightly different orders. It’s like no other music came out this year.
Also I don’t know why, but I love Sonny & the Sunsets new album more than just about anything I’ve heard this year, new or old. What a weird little record.
Second favorite is probably The Liminanas.
Also Thee Oh Sees fucking killed it with Floating Coffin, and the new Magic Milk and The Men records are awesome as well.
Haim’s acclaim makes me feel like I’m living on another planet. Their album is awkward, it’s slick without being accomplished, the singing is glottal and herky-jerky. The songs sound cobbled together, like they took a verse from one song and smashed it into a chorus from another. Listening to their music is like seeing a gawky teen dance at a wedding.
Ah, so because some prisoners are lost causes, it’s pointless to try and help the other ones. I get it.
