I must not be paying too much attention to the stuff posted on here lately because I'm looking at these band/artist names and none of them look familiar.

Or if it's a strong solid album from an artist that has been around for a long time, but is not necessarily breaking new ground in the grand scheme of things. Basically "Best New Music" is a tag of "This is a new and hip and we want everyone to take note of this!"

This is usually happens in regards to genres that are more niche-like and only really appeal to a few staff members who seem to specialize specifically in that genre.

It's 2015, of course there will be people thinking it's sexist.

For me the first song of the 2000s to have an obvious 80s influence was The Bloodhound Gang's Bad Touch.

"See You Again is going to be my least favorite (most hated) song of the year." Oh you say that now, but just wait till Black Eyed Peas' AWESOME becomes a hit.

I think one thing that happens in regards to these revivals is the fact that they usually last about two decades, with one emphasising more on the first half and the other emphasising the last half. Like I often think of the 90s as having a late 60s/early 70s bent, and the 2000s having a late 70s/early 80s bent. And now we are in the 2010s with the late 80s/early 90s influence seeping into everything, which is why you have groups like Haim sounding like Wilson Philips. Just wait till the 2020s when Nu Metal Boy Bands with DJs scratching up thrift store copies of In The Aeroplane Over The Sea start showing up.

Or is t possible that none of the songs are covers, just like how the Kylie collab was neither a Jesus Jones or a Fatboy Slim cover.

Is it weird that the only reason I'm excited for a new Rock Band game is that it means more multi-tracks will find their way online?

I think the video was a bad move on their part. Because nothing says "Summer Hit" like video shot in snowy New York. Have there actually ever been any Summer Hits in which the video is set in a cold snowy environment?

So wait. We've already decided "I Really Really Like You" isn't the song of the summer in the first week of April?

I like how the last two articles on The Wrens have been "The Wrens’ New Album Is Done" and "New Wrens Album Is Done".

Yeah and then those people would go on to tell you how "Rap is something you do, Hip-Hop is something you live", because they learned it from a KRS-One song, who they probably heard about from a Sublime song.

No post about the new Carly Rae Jepsen song or her SNL performance? I thought I knew you, Stereogum!
