Artists or honorees 'threatening to not attend,' or flat out not attending celebrations/events that include Trump are continuing to rise. It could begin to turn toward it being a bigger deal if some decide to attend any events he's is scheduled to take part over making the statement to boycott.

The 80's references you make with WoD is so true based on what we've heard from Deeper Understanding. You get tons of reminders throughout all the songs from that era of classic radio rock. Its the band, Girls, theroy I always come back to...On Father, Son, Holy Ghost, there are moments where you hear songs within their own songs that made you remember some great random 70's tune or you get some weird inspired feeling or soul of that band it reminded you of. That, to me, explains why these guys have a strange ability to get into your head like an earworm. Call them students of their profession or educated pioneers of rock history...either way, they are essential listening, today.

It needs that cymbal-guitar clashing chaos that happens in the midway through of All My Friends to give it a little zing. Good groove tho

My guess is that he does understand and clearly, to him (and many), Grizz is the obvious best album of the week regardless of process in which Stereogum works. That being said though, it wouldn't be a month without someone not accepting or knowing the SG preval slash AOW approach.

Think you may need to actually listen to the album before labeling it shitty. It's a complete departure from what she has put out in the past. Choose your debate battles here, she is definitely an musical enigma, but what has been shitty are the past couple years for her. Whether or not its a case of 'any press is good press,' albums still very much worthy of a listen just based on her confessional cleanse alone.

Better yet, to be able to still continue to suck you into that lower middle class view filled with hopelessness filled with jaded optimism....while being a gazillionaire

Generally speaking, I'm worried about my Stones...pretty soon there is going to be a hard reality that involves Father Time and life surrounding the greatest band on Earth, and I for one will have a hard time coming to terms with that.

Agreed. Different times. Thing about Arcade Fire is that for some reason, you could see this direction coming from around the corner with Reflektor and even a slight vibe of change with Neon Bible. They've been itching to find their inner ABBA for awhile. U2's was an abrupt change. I still remember hearing Numb when it was released and going WTF is going on here.

I don't get this U2 thing....they were 7 albums into their career when they about faced with Zooropa, and Arcade Fires what, four in? Maybe that doesn't seem like much, but still, if you want compare the two, longevity and tenure should account for something. Now, when Gang of Four went from Entertainment! right to Solid Gold, you scratched your head! One other note of difference, U2 was coming out of the 80's into the 90's when they hit us with Zooropa which was by far a more urgent change in rock.

For anyone who is a fan of Grizzly Bear, you really could not ask for more from these tracks....their songs are always such a full meal.

Lyrics are cringe worthy, songs sound similar to a point where you forget where one ends and the other begins. It's a humid, panoramic record but never ends up going anywhere as if it's a watchable movie but with no 3rd act.. Really don't understand the fascination to her, musically. Maybe its her young charisma or schtick, but she's the definition of a one trick pony.

The best part about JB is the one thing I was looking forward to the most with her follow up, which was a better sounding and sonically improved, produced album. Her voice deserves a Grimes type upgrade and its so front and center on this album.

I've mentioned this before, but I swear she names her songs before she writes them. It's almost as if you can actually sing them correctly before even hearing a single note!

Yorke has made it clear in a statement that Loach never 'engaged with them personally' so I'm choosing the side that speaks for themselves, not the side that tells me how to speak for myself.

July 11, 2017 on Thom Yorke On Radiohead Playing Israel: “We Don’t Endorse Netanyahu Any More Than Trump, But We Still Play In America”
Yet again, this dipshit Loach chooses social media to call out Yorke as opposed to just picking up the phone and speaking to him, like a man. Radiohead has made it clear they don't support BDS. This thing obviously has grown some hair on it since Godrich and the whole producing Waters Album and Jonnys wife being Arab-Jewish, but still, you're not making a stand when you attack someone publicly, you are creating more havoc. Clearly, they are not voicing support with anything other than the fans who support them.

There's something to be said about a songwriter who publicly lays emotions out in song like this, after a fight that was so publicly exposed as Keshas. This is not a pop songstress anymore and we should enjoy her cathartic confession as she fights through it. She's fighting demons in public with this, and its made her much more relevant because of it.

Love that OJ song...and I'm not a fan of JayZ but that sounds promising. When it does hit Spotify, I will now give its due. Fuck Apple. Fuck Tidal.

I just love Japanese Breakfast..gotta give props to Bloch on here based on his urgency to get anyone who want involved in her when Psychopomp first hit. Never enjoyed such a sweet voice being able to be so raunchy at that same time more...so happy she'd not digressing to one hit wonder status. Can't wait for her followup
