does it matter? album’s great!
I think the folgers jingle contest found a winnrr!
The Knife. Shanking the Habitual.
they’re super tight with slash and alice cooper
i think the new st. vincent songs punish your insufferable misconceptions
i like the new songs and think they couldn’t have come with out all of the trailblazing, from both male and female influences. big black’s ineffable male only stems from their over-representation of the hetero-male heirarchy that borders ridicule of the system.
and know you nothing of riot grrrl??? its the probably all too reasonable punk response to once again, the hetero-male heirarchy that continues to fuck everyone– you, me, and stereogum readers included. and just because you didn’t looked for the female criteria for an artist, doesn’t mean that there aren’t women that create distant, alienating, and sometime’s terrifying music.
kim always kept the sound of sonic youth in balance to fill out the entire range of emotions. And for me, someone so devastated upon hearing the break-up of kim and thurston– that i wept.
and now i’m forced to realize its all to a capricious end. the tragic and dystopian love affair caught in the noisy background of their day is kept as the sonic youth catalogue.
that said, i was once told that i don’t have ovaries so i’m not allowed to listen to bikini kill
Thumbs down for not even a single memorable April Fools gag
i’m glad sub pop has the budget-backing qualifications of a big label.
not like EMI and BMG gave this kind of creative freedom to Katy Perry or Ke$ha for the same price or anything…
I mean DAYYUUMMMMM!
Seriously? Robin Pecknold?
Theres gotta be at least one “junk in the trunk” joke in that whole sketch
sounds like xiu xiu is covering scott walker.
Not to be confused with St. Vincent’s “Year of the Tiger”. Nerds love the Chinese Zodiac.
i like it! not a huge departure for beach-flavored indie pop but totally listenable!
Nasty Nas. the best in yr perimeter.
the white stripes were less of a collaboration and more of jack white’s lift-off point for his classic blues-rock sound. the stripes may be his original creative outlet, but this is just his songs drowned in boom-crash beats from his wife/sister
i don’t get it. who would want to buy 11 different versions of the same song?
fight breast cancer with variety!
this is truly a loss for the musical community! with the passing of this legend, we inch closer to a time when people will nostalgically say: “back in my day, we listened to skrillex”
