Wonder how Albini would feel about Stereogum taking accepting ads from the Air Force… Nothing says indie music like airborne remote controlled killing machines!

I like too.

September 28, 2010 on Pissed Jeans – “False Jesii Pt. 2″ Video

The latte is a better deal. Sufjan’s one-dimensional grasp of electronic music leaves a lot to be desired.

This video is heavily inspired by and probably made by the creators of the Standard Hotel elevator video…

I can’t speak for Stereogum, but my hard on for Robyn is because she is very talented and makes pop music her own. Yes, that is the same Robyn. She recorded that song when she was 16/17.

This album sounded so much better live and acoustic. Emily looks better live and acoustic.

Jessica, I know you… not well, but you knew my friend Joe Quarnberg from UA art dept. Congrats on the NY music writing success.

June 1, 2010 on Metric – “Stadium Love” Video

This song reminds me of Tricky’s cover of Black Steel.

Wish she would stop sampling. Unless you are transforming into something greater than the sum of it’s parts, it’s just lazy and unimaginative at this point.

Great track! – look forward to hearing more from them.

Surprisingly good track! Photoshop is awesome!

Flying Lotus sounds nothing like J Dilla.

March 24, 2010 on Flying Lotus & Thom Yorke – “… And The World Laughs With You”

Millions of people eat at McDonalds, drive SUVs, and wear Nikes. Just because something is (potentially) popular, doesn’t mean it’s good.

March 23, 2010 on Stone Temple Pilots – “Between The Lines”

They should consider taking drugs again to find those neo-psych flourishes.

Shepard Fairey cover art… really? – It didn’t help Corgan’s Zeitgeist.

Thanks – I’ll have to give them another listen with a new ear this time.

What is the appeal of this band? – I ask in a non-snarky, genuine manner. Is there something compelling about them that I’m missing?

I Agree… I think the previous, more linear format worked better. You immediately knew where to look on the page, at the top, for the latest story and there seemed to be a more compelling lead-ins with a larger image and more text.

Layout and aesthetic wise I feel like they took a page from Pitchfork’s book with a more random access user experience and refined/somewhat minimal look. It kind of feels like P4K Junior. Stereogum’s audience came to it because it wasn’t P4K.

Strokes are an important bellwether band of the 00’s. I still root for them. I’m glad to see they are putting out some new tunes in ’10.

J – you are still missing the “?” in “is This It?” and “Wright” is wrong. Wight is right.

March 13, 2010 on Strokes Confirm Lollapalooza 2010, LP Coming September

Yes, The Wire. My friend had a painting in her basement by “MF McNutt”… it seemed vaguely vulgar and sounded better than “i pee on your face” as a handle.

Great show… especially when Small Black joined Washed Out on stage. The beats where much more dance oriented than their albums which made for a livelier, enthusiastic crowd. The guy behind Washed Out seems really humble and genuine too. I look forward to future Washed Out releases –

(Amrit, you have the date as “2/7/10″ – should be 3/7/10)

It will take some getting used to, but nice. Some design details here and there that I think could use refinement.

The one jarring thing is the giant “reply” buttons in the comments section. They overshadow the comments. They should really be smaller and set back in a lighter tone. A simple icon like Gawker uses would make for better user experience.

Thanks –
