that's the wrong one :( Vanessa Carlton already made her bid for the indie set a few years ago, and it was pretty okay!

November 28, 2016 on Join Us At A Stereogum Christmas Show In Brooklyn
I understand the comparison, but no one asked for 9/11. Almost half the (voting) populace asked for Donald Trump. I agree that it's time to take action, but as a queer person it doesn't come as a surprise to me that half the country despises me, and I've been working. But interesting assertion that no one has died given all the police brutality we've seen this year alone...

Nah, gonna use my very small platform to encourage people to vote for the viable candidate who does not personally want me and every other marginalized person in this country to either not be here or live in fear for the rest of their lives. But thanks!

November 1, 2016 on Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands Of 2016
As I stated in the intro and in a few comments down below, we don't take the parameters of this list that seriously, and obviously there's always going to be exclusions. Don't think I'd classify that as lazy! This list is just an excuse to give special attention to new(ish) music we've been excited about all year. No deeper than that...

November 1, 2016 on Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands Of 2016
This is true! Though honestly the criteria for this list is so loose that nothing really makes any sense. We just want to celebrate some new-ish artists that put out good music this year, but that doesn't lend itself to a grabby headline :P

New stuff next year for Kissi I think! They just missed the cutoff for BNB last year, so decided to slip them in here :) And yeah, we've been on the Mitski train for a while now so she wasn't considered. If we had done a list in 2014 (we skipped that year), she would've def been on it.

November 1, 2016 on Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands Of 2016
I really do not like Whitney (though some other staffers like them, but not enough to make the list), but Car Seat Headrest was on last year's list :)
