Reminiscent of Chairlift’s Evident Utensil video.

Love Vampire Weekend, but will Rostam ever put out a solo album?

I really want a video for Vowels = Space and Time.

Do you think the Grammys will give him Best New Artist next year?

I really liked ‘All We Grow’, but it seems that with this new EP S. Carey’s songwriting finally matches his knack for beautiful instrumentation. Can’t wait to see what he’s brewing for another full-length.

If Pitchfork gives the 2012 Camry anything above a 7.0, I’ll be shocked.

Quick, someone make a mash up of Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill and Santi’s The Keepers!

I went through a heavy J-Pop phase in high school (still hold Utada Hikaru and Shiina Ringo close to my heart), but I haven’t kept up with any Asian pop since.

If anything, this collection of tracks shows that Korean producers are getting a much, much greater variety of styles from their soundboards than American producers. When I go out dancing with friends all the tracks, the Katy Perrys, David Guettas, Flo Ridas, etc. all sound like they came from the same factory. It’s fun to dance to, but after a half-hour I’m pretty bored.

I don’t know if I’m rushing to my nearest Asian import store to buy any of these kids’ singles, but as much as Koreans have borrowed and re-interpreted 30+ years of American pop music, it’s time our big-name producers start borrowing back.

Also, that Bad Girl, Good Girl song/video is great.
