1. Don't Lie 2. The Rat 3. Hannah Hunt 4. They're Winning 5. Walcott I hate only picking five, and this changes on a daily basis (aside from Don't Lie, which is IMO the crux of one the best four song runs on any album ever--"Step" through "Hannah Hunt").

Why am I craving KFC? I feel like there's some subconscious reason.

That's so cool! I once took a class in which I got to write about the Strokes and their position in the rock canon. My other one was on Joan Baez and her involvement in UC Berkeley's Free Speech Movement. Best class ever.

Proper notation per 'Gum guidelines is Ham+Stam. Do make note. But, in all seriousness, I can't wait to sit down with this Angel Olsen album.

Don't think Jaden Smith is that bad. He's not the highlight of the show by any means, but he's a decent filler. Clearly he was typecast as a druggy dreamer archetype.

Hmmm, I would say it's medium Baz Luhrmann. It's a lot grittier than Moulin Rouge or Gatsby.

The Get Down is pretty good, so far (only two episodes in). If you're looking for realism, the bars are way too complex for the '70s. And the dialogue can be awkward at times. But Baz, IMO, is great at one thing--conveying a feeling. And he nails that. Plus, Daveed Diggs makes an appearance

The fact that both accounts were created for that one thread is amusing as well. I imagine one guy getting angrier and angrier, until he reached his breaking point and said, "Oh man, I've gotta get in on this Matisyahu conversation. Gotta teach these savages about real white guy reggae."

That's true. Still an embarrassment. Speaking as a sometime resident

I've really liked what's come out of the city over the past few years. Kweku Collins is so talented. Such a confident, studied approach. Big name to watch IMO. And Joey Purp is putting out bangers. Obviously Chance is on fire right now, at the level of Kendrick

July 25, 2016 on Can You Say Chi City? Chance The Rapper & Family Turning Chi-Raq Back Into Chicago
1) Clams Casino--32 Levels Just getting on that train. And boy is this a fun train. S/o to Kelly Zutrau. I may have to deal with your Gap ads running down the side of the page, "Back to You" is silky smooth AND a low-key jam. 2) Sylvan Esso's self-titled I've heard it a million times, and it never gets old. 3) Islands--Should I Remain Here at Sea, Taste Underrated. Both released this year, two different sounds. The former is more traditional indie-rock, while the latter is synthy. "Fear" speaks to a lot of what's going on right now in America. "Charm Offensive" sort of folds into itself on repeated listens. 5) Schoolboy Q--Blank Face As advertised. Worth it. 6) Drowners--On Desire Listen. It's hooky, and the lead singer kind of sounds like Morrissey. It's a fun album, though somehow it's also steeped in melancholy.

Where can I find a "well of new-age pan flutes?" Finding such a thing is now my sole ambition in life.

Soooo jealous. She's bluesy, but in a super approachable way.

Glaspy, Margaret. Also, let's just go ahead and make Charli XCX an annual nominee.

I'm glad you didn't grow out of it. I hope I never do. Cuz every time a Will Toledo type comes along I wanna be there to experience it with the kind of people who hang around here, people like you who can understand how much it means when those guitars swell up in perfect cacophony or the horns kick in at the exact right moment.

I started reading this site as a pretty young teenager, just reading at first. Back then it was RJ, donnytilla, Michael_, rubjon, and a few others who I can't remember anymore. When I first started commenting I thought it would be hilarious to do some trolling. A few comments in I realized I was no good at senseless negativity and I started commenting honestly. At that point, my taste wasn't too developed. Didn't look much deeper than the standard Alt Nation stuff, which was fine, but super limiting. So when I waded into the comment section I came off as ill-informed and a tad juvenile, and it showed in my interaction with the community. I valued my own outlook more than I should have, which colored how I read the opinions of others. Since then, though, I've learned what a great resource this community is if I want nuanced, informed, and entertaining opinions on what's happening in the music world (that Oxford Comma doe). And I've noticed that people don't take themselves too seriously here, which is refreshing. This site has played a huge role in making my relationship with music more gratifying, and I can honestly say I've grown up with it. So, thanks Stereogum. And thanks 'Gummers. You guys are the best.

There's not a bad song there--truly, solid gold the whole way through. I was surprised, because I found their previous output up and down.
