Can’t we just focus on sending our love out to these families? Instead, everyone is just arguing about hashtags. It’s sad to me.
Also. Why is T. Swift number 8? Is that just to be funny? I’m assuming the writer of this has a sense of humor.
Sharon Van Etten and The War On Drugs are what I am looking forward to most this year.
Philip Cosores – By “compartmentalize”, I’m pretty sure you meant condense. If you compartmentalize something, that means you are taking it apart and separating it into different parts that you keep completely separate from one another.
Even disregarding grammatical errors, I feel like you just don’t know how to listen to music. Like everyone else who writes for Stereogum. I feel like it’s all about what’s cool. Have you ever listened to music and just heard the musicianship and the lyrics without throwing the group into some sort of box?
Maybe you should try it.
Crazy. I literally like all of the same songs you like. Definitely Tecumseh, Colorado, and Mother.
“racing to the finish line”… i meant “plods toward the finish line”. I just think that statement is strange.
I think “Takk…” is way too good to be as low as it is. I don’t understand the write-up on that album at all – “Milano” and “Andvari” racing to the finish line? Of all the songs on the album, “Milano” has made me almost crash my car more than any of the other songs on Takk. I’ve literally beaten my steering wheel into itself. And then comes “Svo hljótt”, possibly my favorite song they’ve ever created.
This list is so bizarre to me.
I love at 4 min mark “Simmer down, simmer down, simmer down”… reference to Mos Def. So awesome. Great performance. Roots are such a good backing band. It always blows my mind.
