It’s super cool to shit on James Blake right now, but this is pretty good. It’s admirable to see someone with his amount of success continuing to move in new directions.

Damn. He’s got such an original sound, it doesn’t seem like there’s anyone else out there doing what he’s doing. There’s an awesome npr interview with him where he deconstructs one of his pieces; it’s a good primer for a lot of people who use samples, and he makes a good distinction between what he does live and what others may do.

Until this comment thread, I was unaware that people existed in this world who were not obsessed with Destiny’s Child. Bummer.

While not the ‘Mats themselves, I have heard from someone who has been reliable in the past that the Paul Westerberg rumor has some truth to it.

My hope is that 2013 sees this conversation move past the ethics of music piracy and the demise of a certain type of economic model that sustains the life of a musician towards a discussion of what the new economic model will look like. That discussion already exists obviously, it’s just always prefaced by finger-pointing about cd / digital music sales. And that guy from Cracker taking a huge shit on an underpaid intern.

As per the comments above, I think it would be interesting to see a post about how electronic music is codified and split into these different genres. It’s worth talking about, and I admire the writing of Stereogum writers a whole lot more than most sites.

Clams Casino needs to produce and album for Clams Casino. His stuff can definitely stand alone.

RCRD LBL is awesome = you’re awesome. Also, the high school senior in me is super excited for the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album.
