I wonder if he’s been gauging responses with his 2015 releases as a way of finalizing the SHMG tracklist. It sounds like Yeezus was finalized in one final rush so SHMG may still be coming together.

It’s impossible not to hear Drake saying “I sing a hook they sing along with me” in the back of my head when I listen to this

January 26, 2015 on Tom Petty Awarded Songwriting Credit For Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”

This strikes me as odd because I read somewhere that he informally gave the Strokes his blessing for cribbing the American Girl riff on Last Night. But I guess we all seem to be pretty forgiving when it comes to the Strokes

January 21, 2015 on The Mountain Goats – “The Legend Of Chavo Guerrero”

Agreed. The fact that it’s a collaboration with McCartney, whose mother died when he was 14, makes it even more touching.

January 2, 2015 on Kanye West – “Only One” (Feat. Paul McCartney)

So interesting. This plus the Diplo + Rostam collab makes me hope that 2015 is dominated by Vampire Hip Hop

December 20, 2014 on iLoveMakonnen × Ezra Koenig × Despot – “Down 4 So Long (Remix)”

Personally, I’d even go with Classics over this for Album of the Week. It’s thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable where A Better Tomorrow had me very upset at points. Also of note, the new Ghostface album is streaming over at NPR and it’s very very good.
