I was big into Marilyn Manson when I was 13-15 and got into nu metal via that route, which steered me away from the likes of Korn and Limp Bizkit but towards dumber shit like Adema and Orgy. System of a Down are the only nu metal band I saw live though, hot off the Mezmerize release with The Mars Volta opening, and they were thoroughly excellent.

I've noticed some drop-off in the Stereogum Weekend Party Playlist. We used to get upwards of 25 songs and now we're cruising at a steady 15-16 per week. Is it time to re-introduce the concept for those who forgot or may not be aware? Fuck it, I'll do it. The playlist is at open (dot) spotify (dot) com (slash) user (slash) raptorjesus311 (slash) playlist (slash) 5EmVYgb3VUqF209C80haUF Every Friday, add ONE and ONLY ONE song that's been on your mind that week. Can be old, can be new, can be a crowd-pleaser, can be a 20-minute sludge metal patience-tester. That's it, go nuts! Did I forget anything?

I was in Lagos about two years ago and Wizkid and Afrobeats were EVERYWHERE (although at the time the locals just called it "Afropop") and even then I remember thinking "this is what American pop music is going to sound like soon". I would also ask locals if Nigeria has any rock bands and they would look at me like I had three heads (it does, you just have to dig for them and even then they aren't very good).

July 17, 2017 on Vote For The Song Of The Summer 2017
I don't usually agree with the popular opinion that Song of the Summer has to be a wide-reaching pop song, but this year I had to give the nod to "Supercut". That song was built, from the meta level up, to soundtrack rose-colored summertime montage footage.

Everybody is Going to Heaven was underrated, they're one of the better "soft grunge" bands. This sounds great!

Stereogum doesn't really cover him anymore because he releases more goddamn music than Lil B in his prime, so I just thought I'd let y'all know that Kool AD is releasing a song a day for 100 days. Some of them are very good! PS anyone else going to see Sleep on Friday? I'll be the stoned white guy

July 11, 2017 on Album Of The Week: Waxahatchee Out In The Storm
La Loose is easily the best Waxahatchee song but I don't think it works nearly as well without the chintzy drum machines and background vox. The contrast between the bouncy rhythm and the devastating lyrics is what makes it work, at least for me.

I speak only for myself, but the "we'll all arrive" part always reminds me of Bono, which is an instant boner-kill

June 29, 2017 on The National – “Guilty Party” Video
Totally agree. The instrumentation and atmosphere are gorgeous, but I miss some of Matt's more surreal and evocative lyrical flourishes. Still a better song than "Heavenfaced" though.

True, but the advance singles from Grizzly, BSS, and LCD all got kinda indifferent responses from the press. Once upon a time the return of BSS would have been a HUGE deal, but now it seems like most music writers don't even care.

June 28, 2017 on Arcade Fire Officially Unveil Everything Now Tracklist
It feels like all the mid-00s indie titans are getting backlash nowadays. The Modest Mouse comeback got shrugged off, and press has been lukewarm about Animal Collective for a couple records now. I'm curious to see the response to new Grizzly Bear, Broken Social Scene, and LCD Soundsystem but I'm predicting that it will be similarly tepid. The National is anyone's guess, and we'll see what happens when Vampire Weekend finally release something new, but overall I'm noticing a trend of mid-00s indie being considered "of its time" and not really relevant or interesting anymore.

I got into them via The Sunset Tree and that's still my favorite. But, it is much more personal and less cheeky than Goths. My other favorite is All Hail West Texas, though as lobster said it's a raw one.

I believe "Soma" is the song that famously has like 60 layered guitar tracks, which is a total shoegaze power move
