Wolf in White Van was quite good but damn was it ever dark and sad. Even being familiar with Darnielle's lyrics, I was not expecting it to be so harrowing. Dude's a great writer.

This is obviously terrible and gross, but "All Star" still holds the title for worst song of all time, in my book.

For a group that's all about "redneck pride", ICP are actually surprisingly progressive. Check out the lyrics to their song "Confederate Flag".

Of the few main things I hate about him, one's his petty, vogue ideas someone's been told too many times they're beyond their years

Bummer. "Buttercups" (either version, though I prefer the Flower split) is such a jam.

No mention on Stereogum of the return of German atmospheric black metal band ColdWorld? This type of metal isn't usually my favorite, but something about ColdWorld really resonates with me, and last week's new album "Autumn" adds some fun new elements to the mix. Highly recommended if that type of thing is your jam!

I read the headline as Mark E. Smith at first and got very confused, but then I looked up Mark's political opinions and I guess it wouldn't be the craziest thing. Sad!

The flip side of that is that Bonnaroo feels like its own little world, which is special in its own way. Yes it feels nice to leave Gov Ball and come home to my own bed and a hot shower, but because you can't escape Bonnaroo, it ends up feeling much more communal and friendly. I went in 2014 and had a blast, but I didn't return in 2015 or 2016 frankly because the lineup was boring. But then I have particular tastes and most festival acts don't excite me at all.

Ayo, Kool AD, the busiest man in hip-hop, just released ANOTHER 100-track mixtape on his Bandcamp. I'm only 40 songs deep, but sadly it's not as good as the previous one. Dude is turning into Lil B, he should get on a Clams beat himself.

I think it's a tricky line to walk. Would we be comfortable with Warped Tour hosting an Aryan Brotherhood tent? Probably not, because open white supremacy is almost universally agreed upon as bad. Or is it? Donald Trump's ascendancy muddies that question a bit. But still, the comments section would look a lot more like "Woah, Warped Tour probably shouldn't be associating themselves with these views". Is being pro-life objectively bad in the same way as being a white supremacist? In my opinion... I dunno, yeah, kinda? I try to be open minded but fuck, why on earth would anyone with half a brain support the criminalization of a woman who isn't you, making a choice about her own uterus? And you couldn't legislate it away, even if you tried. But I suppose that's just one internet asshole's opinion, and you know what? Warped Tour is a private organization and ultimately they have the right to host and promote whoever they want, and we all have the right to complain about it if we want to, as well. Ultimately it's not going to make a lick of difference unless people vote with their dollars. Twitter is an easy outlet for your momentary outrage but if you truly, genuinely feel strongly about this issue, you know that it takes more than whining on the internet.

Back when I was in school, I worked as an office assistant at the New School for General Studies Writing Program, where Sufjan once got his MFA. One day, a couple grad students and I were tasked with clearing out the boxes upon boxes of old student chapbooks that had been piling up in the office. After hours of digging through grad school poetry, we suddenly found a couple copies of a chapbook by Sufjan Stevens, titled "We Are Shielded by the Holy Ghost". I believe it was poetry, possibly short fiction. IIRC, the grad students each kept a copy for themselves and not long after, a copy mysteriously showed up on eBay. Moral of the story, Sufjan needs to do a better job with his garbage.
