UMO, Smith Westerns, and Toro Y Moi deserve spots too.
Answer: Probably the same reason you make asinine, worthless, and critical comments on a music blog. It’s just what you guys do; she likes selling records, and you like being an asshole.
Your Lips are Red deserves a nod in my book. The repetition of that “your skin so fair it’s not fair” line gets me, especially in the live versions.
Disclosure has to be the frontrunner…that album, and specifically the singles, has been THE sound of 2013. At least the representative sound of British music across the world…I’ve heard young people in Iceland+Scandinavian nations are obsessed with it.
I’d argue for Aerodynamic and Something About Us…
I have the same relationship with 808s….it always gets its go around every winter for me. I remember listening to it in the car, with the snow faling and everything, the winter it came out. Does everyone view 808s the same? I can’t imagine it being a summer record to anyone. Anyways, sonically this is my favorite Kanye album ever.
Actually, I’m completely wrong. Forgive me.
Ian Curtis’ lyrics to Ceremony are different than the New Order ones. New Order took the song but could never fully remember or decipher or find Curtis’ lyrics to it so they wrote new ones.
Jesus Christ…that revived my admiration of that man. I felt like I had never seen anything like that from him. Terrific.
Just set myself up for a shalacking of “YOU AIN’T KNOW NO BIGGIE, YOU 2011 HIPSTER RAPPING LOVER BOY.”
“So I feel like BIG with the super nintendo, Sega genesis. Now we doing deals with the major businesses.”
When I heard that in an ASAP song, I thought he meant BIG as in Tom Hanks. Now it makes all the sense in the world.
I agree with you there, especially on Thursday. That doesn’t make it bad music though. Myself and many others I’ve talked to bring up the fact that Bon Iver’s cd this year felt like that; it’s great, but you can’t really differ the songs besides maybe Perth and Holocene. I think this is the middle mixtape quality-wise, but to expect an artist to put out one terrific and two good ep’s in one year is a lot. The Weeknd did it.
My only complaint is that St. Vincent could, and should be in my opinion, in the top ten. At least it should displace Fucked Up. Solid list though.
Friction has a way of shoving their bands into mainstream appeal. Hopefully these girls don’t risk their obvious talent on popular demands.
Never have had one of a moment where I react as strongly as I did to realizing that Kesha is doing my favorite Dylan song…not even trying to be an obnoxious fanboy.
*props to Corban*
I like him as an artist and more so as a guy, Drake just seems damn chill and real. Also, probs to you Corban for reaching that out of him. Even though Drake is a cool guy, I doubt he opens up to any doopy interviewer, and while reading this, it was real close and intimate feeling. (To stereogum overall, good job on keeping the answers free flow, right out of his mouth.)
Damn, shit got real….real quick.
People know them only because the Dirty Projectors gave them a break, which is a promising start for a band, but somehow they have sadly become the new Freelance Whales
Could come off as a James Blake song….a good thing? I don’t know.
The dutchess has Blink 182′s new album in their heavy rotation on “Awkward Sound.” So….no sympathy from this guy.
By that time, I would hope Radiohead already would have new material to tour on. No Doubt makes perfect sense though….so i’m guessing this is true.
Wasn’t this Shabazz Palaces’ 2nd release? Not trying to be an elitist troll, but maybe i’m wrong.
