Music was great. That interview though…What on earth was all that drivel? It’s like his mouth can’t quite keep up with his brain.
Totally agree with your description of Emeralds. I’ve really been a fan of Mark McGuire’s solo stuff, and I’m glad to see him blowing up a bit.
I hear they have a different system for compensating artists too. Surprised this wasn’t covered in the article.
I have no problem with them sounding a little ‘slicker’, but this sounds super compressed to me; maybe that’s just the stream quality though.
And he’s basically disowned it. He has worse things to say about Be Here Now than he does Reflektor.
“Every millisecond that Liam’s not singing, there’s a guitar solo, in a Wayne’s World styling”
Lyrics on Definitely Maybe are actually alright. “Cigarettes and Alcohol” and “Live Forever” are standouts in that respect. And then there’s “Digsy’s Dinner”…
To the non-Australians, AJ Maddah is known for his poor organisational skills; despite running some high profile festivals.
Do you really think Stereogum’s readership needs to be told an (latter day) Eminem album is bad? I’d have much rather seen a review of something I’m less familiar with.
I have no problem with you signing up to a random website to defend Eminem. But at least do so in a coherent and convincing fashion. lol idiot
I give a damn of his stupid reviews idiots.
Glad to have confirmation of the new Fucked Up album.
Also, can’t wait to hear Year Of The Dragon.
I hear that you and your band have sold your guitars and bought turntables.

It’s all just a cycle.
I don’t see the point when I have Spotify.
Who is Sky Ferreira?
‘Hey Ya!’ is the absolute right choice, because it is the nexus of all music of the era. It married the up surge of “Indie” (via the O.C.), with the 2000′s cultural hegemony of “urban”.
Probably just means it isn’t as “confrontational” as her previous releases. M.I.A’s brand is that of a “bad girl”. It becomes difficult to market if she doesn’t fit that mould.
I’d rather listen to OFF! than this.
Thank fuck this finally exists! I can’t be the only one wanting to hear Patrick Stickles singing Springsteen?
I saw them live a couple of times and to be honest Daniel was pretty lacklustre. Not to mention he was wearing a denim jumpsuit for both shows, incredibly distracting, haha.
This can only yield positivie results.
I had the exact same experience with The Strokes getting me into Television. Marquee Moon quickly became one of my favourite albums and is now probably my number one.
And I only found out last year, but Marquee Moon is also my fathers favourite album! Weird how we both came to it from separate paths.
I used to love that song a lot. But these days it just rings hollow.
Best thing Noel has done in a long while.
This guy used to fart out hits! The Masterplan was a fucking b-side!
And now what? It’s so depressing.
I think Noel and Damon need to collaborate on something, for Noels sake.
That certainly couldn’t be too hard.
The name of that album was apt: It proved Daft Punk were very much fallible.
Time will tell I guess.
