Does anyone who doesn’t work at Stereogum actually like Girlpool that much? Song is fine but better than Grimes, Tame Impala, and Lower Dens? I dunno

August 29, 2014 on Hear Diplo Debut Jack U’s Kiesza Collaboration “Take U There” At Mad Decent Block Party

Orchid and Jeromes Dream released a split skull-shaped 10″ that was one-sided with the JD songs going from inside-out and the Orchid songs going from outside-in FOURTEEN YEARS AGO and they didnt have all the money in the world. this isnt super new state of the art technology.

can we just round up the covers at the end of the insanely long tour they are doing? or maybe a “top 5 arcade fire covers of the week” on Friday? no? a new article with a new cover every day? ok then.

July 18, 2013 on Summer Jam 2013: TomCattt’s “Yes Love”

going off the tracklist on wikipedia I’m thinking it was track 10 (Palace Posy) that I was specifically talking about, but the statement holds for pretty much all the songs.

May 30, 2013 on What Is Patrick Stewart Even Talking About?

” That moment, I wrote Vile off forever, or anyway I thought he did. But the withdrawn, diffuse unseriousness that made his live show so unbearable someone turned into positives on Smoke Rings For My Halo, Vile’s very good 2011 album.”

uhhh did anyone proofread this? three mistakes in these two sentences..

I think this and The Glow pt 2 don’t really fit the alleged criteria for this column. The Glow Pt. 2 has been reissued before, is currently being reissued again, and is held by many in incredibly high esteem (myself included).

As for Leaves Turn Inside You, maybe I am blessed with knowing people with outstanding musical taste, but almost EVERYONE I know considers this to be a classic record. I dont mind reading about records I like (and I love Advisory Committee as well so this column has been great for my personal tastes) but I just dont get how someone could be interested in the type of music Stereogum talks about without already being well aware of both this record and The Glow pt. 2.

I think “reading countless trend pieces over the past 8-12 months” might throw you firmly into the Hipster camp. I hope this helps.
