Great article, but I cannot sit idly by when someone implys that Only Skin is not in her top 10, or even the top 3 of Ys. That song is a goddamn masterpiece that's still giving 10 years later.

Reducing Divers to "generally lovely" is... wow.

November 4, 2015 on Watch Joanna Newsom’s Stunning Solo Jools Holland Performance
Man "Time, As a Symptom" is one of the most powerful songs I've heard in a long time. I wouldn't be surprised if the next Godspeed album was titled "White Star, White Ship-Nightjar, Transmit: Transcend!"

Pitchfork's whole reaction to this album has reminded me of a mother who's suddenly realized her children have grown up and no longer depend on her. "I can't believe they would do something so hasty and reckless without even calling me first! And after I spent 10 years raising them!"

Does anyone who's heard it want to talk about how Somewhere Tonight is the most "Beach Housey" song ever written and also maybe the most beautiful?

I was going to complain about this but then I saw All Dogs is also Yowler so I'm here to say listen to Yowler.

Is there a law against riding a small hands-free segway around an airport? Honest question.

Gonna have to question the lack of Anna von Hausswolff, although I guess that's more appropriate for winter than summer.

This is basically what Two Years At Sea is, minus the robots. I recommend it.

There's a key difference though - you had at least some respect for your parents, and they had ways of punishing you. Neither of the those factors apply to this situation. They have absolutely no reason to change for you or any other internet stranger. It's sounds defeatist but I've fought this battle for years (I used to post on /mu/ back when you could still find some decent discussion among the shit) and ignoring them really is the only option.

That's the thing though, these are people who don't care if their actions are socially acceptable. If anything they pride themselves on being "honest" and "real". You will never win by engaging them in this way, the second you acknowledge them you lose. They've been acting this way for over a decade and it's not going to change.

Everyone knows there are only four instruments: guitar, bass, drums and synths. (Those are definitely woodwinds Chris, no question.)

I really like this album but you guys are laying it on super thick here. I mean I guess I don't have a problem with that, but it would be nice to see this level of intense praise aimed at smaller artists who can actually use this level of buzz. CRJ's gonna do just fine without Stereogum writing weekly defenses of her genius.

Yeah this makes Ethan's weirdly aggressive takedown of Alice look even worse.

I know it's probably pretty annoying for any singer-songwriter-harp player to constantly be compared to Joanna Newsom, but I AM getting a Milk-Eyed Mender vibe from this and I can't think of higher praise than that.

Pretty curious to see if/when (probably when) people start to express "outrage" over Drake's "racist" whtieface caricatures.
