Haven't listened yet but just reading the words "David Bazan" and "chugging guitar riff" in the same sentence is getting me all giddy already

Ever notice something strange with the word "Grammys"? No? Well, look at it again. See how the two "m"s, when placed next to each other, have 6 downstrokes? or should I say... 3 pairs of 11? Yeah, thought so.

June 21, 2017 on Owl City Finally Explains His Bizarre “Fireflies” Lyric, In Great Detail
Have to add, that is one of my favorite articles I've ever read on any music website, and proved to me again why I feel like Stereogum is my home on the internet. Thanks rj, blessed be daddy, all hail the Doris. Love y'all

Someone let underscore interview Dylan Baldi. That would be something

Honest to god, this is the first Killers song I've enjoyed since Mr. Brightside (or Somebody Told Me, whichever came later). I never understood why anyone still gives them any coverage, but this is the first song of theirs that's a little fun and not just lame in... well, forever. I find the comments very funny anyhow cuz I just can't see how this is any worse than any of their music

OKNOTOK also comes out this Friday, but Man of War and Lift are already out there and they are INCREDIBLE. Man of War in particular is just outstanding, great arrangement and it's just really great to be able to finally listen to it in normal studio quality. Don't forget to listen on Friday

that's true, but most of time Tom just mentions if the album is "unheard yet"

Also, does the specific Vince Staples album description means Tom has heard the album!?! I hope that just means it's getting a Premie and not that, you know, tom has heard it

It did, but they don't want you to listen to that new Khaled

Haven't heard this yet but I'm 100% sure Murder of the Universe >>> everything else not Vince Staples this week. Seriously, it's so fucking ridiculous and great

Jay just didn't want to use the spacebar that much because he needs all the bars he can get

Same thing here. That was my introduction to the whole Joshua Tree scene and basically all things stoner rock from Cali or anywhere else. Remember Fu Manchu?

YES. Found Turbonegro thru that cover. Great fucking band, but the QOTSA version is just fucking beautiful

This is gonna be way down the comments for anyone to notice, but still: Listened to this song twice earlier while doing some stuff and wasn't sure what to make of it, then read all the comments here and was worried. But now I've binged this song like 5 times straight after a night of drinking and goddamn it is fucking great. No one else sounds like this band. I'm so happy

June 15, 2017 on Queens Of The Stone Age – “The Way You Used To Do”
Gonna ride this comment to ask how the hell half the comments here took issue with the song, but not a single one mentions how god awful both the album and single art are

Full disclosure, everytime I read someone call Spoon "the most consistent band", I think to myself "bitch have you not listened to Queens of the Stone Age"

I started at No One Knows, than went to Era Vulgaris (which was just released then), then Rated R > Songs for the Deaf > Lullabies > S/T > every possible b side I could find. Every fucking album of theirs is amazing. Most consistent band in the business.
