First, I would hardly call the Grammys nominations "absolutely subjective." Let's not pretend like this dumb awards show nominates artists out of pure love for their music. If that were true, the nominations wouldn't always be the same like 5% of the musical landscape that just so happens to get heavily marketed by major labels and a lot of top 40 radio play. Maybe that just speaks to the voters' (boring) tastes, but there is a clear pattern with the nominations consistently being highly marketable, mainstream pop acts. The Grammys are more about $$$ than anything. And yes, music is art and art is subjective. This does not mean that nobody can be criticized for their preferences or tastes simply because it is a matter of opinion. I could say it is my opinion that we should let pigs drive cars. You (hopefully) would tell me that opinion is 100% insane and question my intelligence. You can make justifiable observations about people based on their subjective opinions. The Grammys have established a pattern over time of giving awards to white artists. Prominent black musicians usually get genre awards like Best Rap Album, but rarely take home the really major ones (Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Album of the Year). There are exceptions, like Chance winning Best New Artist this year, but for the most part if you look at the winners over the years, there is a pattern. I don't think the Grammy voters are all like "well Beyonce is black, so we should give it to Adele" or whatever. I think it's more of an almost subconscious decision. It's probably, if any one thing, because the Grammy voters are a bunch of older white people and someone like Adele is more appealing and safe and familiar to them than Beyonce or Kanye or Kendrick. I get the feeling you are looking at the criticism of racism meaning malicious intent aimed at black people, when it's probably more of an inherent, subconscious bias due to cultural background and upbringing, etc.

Anyone else think "impacting radio" is kind of a strangely intense phrase? Will the new album totally demolish music forever?

I agree with everything in this comment. Person Pitch is the only thing from any of them that I still go back to. Though I did like Panda Bear Meets with the Grim Reaper more than I expected.

Man, how far has Animal Collective fallen that I have not seen any press at all for this new EP. So excellent we don't understand it yet, indeed.

And yet every year we do the same song and dance of "maybe the Grammys won't suck this time, there's some interesting performances" and then every year its the same bullshit. I get that the writers of Stereogum are obligated to cover the Grammys, but outside of media/industry people propping up the Grammys as being relevant, I don't really see much interest in them from people in general. Just watch the performances on Youtube if you really want to see them. Fuck the Grammys though.

"i’m writing these things so that when/if these things happen there will be a public record beforehand." Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Moby's Instagram, the most important mouthpiece against fascism to ever exist in the history of mankind.

No results. This is why I never bother with this. It feels like I'm smashing my head against a wall hoping to cure a headache.

I just added you but can't find the playlist. Am I a total moron or something? Is it normally this difficult for everyone?

Is there a way to find the playlists without getting linked or finding someone who already follows them? Spotify's user interface is unbelievably terrible sometimes.

Yes, which is why we are making fun of him here. But Kanye was hyping him a bunch when he first came up, and the Kanye bump is real.

Other things Big Sean believes: Matrix Revolutions is the best Matrix movie Star Wars Prequels are underrated Radiohead should have called it quits after Pablo Honey B.o.B. really had a point there with the whole flat earth thing "Hey Soul Sister" by Train is a great song Spike Lee made the better version of Oldboy The Dexter series finale was perfect So was the How I Met Your Mother finale The Beach Boys are better without Brian Wilson

Garden State-core is a good descriptor. Would also go with Apple Commercial-core.
