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.

February 7, 2013 on James Blake – “Retrograde”
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. http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2011/04/19/135517887/gold-panda-breaking-down-found-sound

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.

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

Although your list doesn't match up with my tastes, I'm still upvoting because last week when I posted mine after a lot of whiskey, people were nice to me and upvoted it. Also cool to see tallest man get some well-deserved love.

I feel like the woman from purity ring would be on here if she didn't hide in the shadows all the time

Also, can we all agree on the mega-sexiness of Dev Hynes?

It's awesome to see fewer and fewer publications lead off any story about her by mentioning she's Beyonce's sister. No surprise with performances like this, damn.

Working up my list right now, but number 1 (and I know this is a total niche album, which is why I don't expect it to be on anyone else's list) is Peaking Lights' Lucifer.
