Find Me On:
Ye, I love the song “Pain”.
Back in the limewire days I had it mislabeled as being a White Stripes song, one of the first songs by Jack White I’d ever heard, brings back fond memories. :’)
Yeah I was really sad to hear the news like many of us, I still have my second iPod classic which has lasted me the last three years, and my previous before that lasted maybe 2 or three (can’t remember) before it melted itself to death (it was literally smoking and I was just charging it in my car). Sadly now, my current classic will randomly pause when I’m listening on my headphones – which I assume is that function that pauses the music when the jack is pulled out – and i’m not sure how to fix it. I would be super sad if i couldn’t fix it and have all my tunes on one working device.
A completely fair criticism about the Foo Fighters, one that I don’t disagree with in any way.
I listened to this a couple days ago and I remember being slightly put off by the tempo increase, otherwise I think it’s a flawless remix. I’d agree though, it would be difficult to remix Spoon because Britt’s voice works perfectly in their minimalist compositions, if anyone was the perfect person to remix this song it was Tycho.
At the same time, at the very least he must be much happier these days I’d hope.
Stereogum Premier? After so much proclaimed hate (deservedly)? Hmm….
No one is inferring that other award shows hold any more credibility. While I agree that the blatant hating and comments like “Y do u care if ur not 12″ or “I forgot anyone evn cared a bout the grameez” are not constructive and are really just extremely annoying, I would also say that we believe it is worthwhile to have this discussion because of what it says about the state of pop music.
The point isn’t that black musicians aren’t given grammys, it’s that they have been largely segregated to the Urban/Rap categories and not as acknowledged in the main categories like Album of the Year.
And then it gets even worse when you get the shitty white-pop version winning in these categories too, like Macklemore beating Kendrick and potentially Iggy Azelea winning an award this year.
(You meaning Stereogum/James Rettig)
