Also, 1989 is fire (tracks 2-9, with the exception of "Bad Blood" which I think is a little boring, are silly good) and St. Vincent is a really great guitarist who makes knotty, pretentious music that's much more critiquable than it is actually listenable. Seriously though, I'll listen to just about anything and couldn't make it through more than 2 songs of her last album.

April 16, 2015 on Mumford & Sons Frontman Learning How To “Chop Up Beats” For New Hip-Hop Project
He's been one of the most refreshing and exciting music writers to read for years and years. He also brought country to Stereogum so now I listen to Miranda Lambert (and Kacey Musgraves who's even more of a boss, but that's more indirectly related to Tom's work) :)! Helped legions of white, male fogey-ish indie kids (like me!) realize there's plenty of other great shit out there. I must, however, agree that the Mumfords are pretty vom-inducing.

My friend's ex started dating Jim James and neither of us ever really liked MMJ so for me, he's easy to shit on, but this makes him seem like a pretty chill dude.

They should bring back the boss battle mode from Guitar Hero 3 and have a battle where you have to play The War on Drugs song while Mark Kozelek incessantly boos, complains, and talks shit throughout.

I think i probably listened to this more than any other album throughout college. Excellent, excellent stuff - threw "Mr. November" on every party playlist I ever made

Did that Nozinja song come out this week? I can't claim to know anything about that song/scene other than that it was really fun.

Speedy Ortiz are from Western Mass not Boston. They're, alongside Potty Mouth, California X and many many hardcore greats, part of an awesome Pioneer Valley (Amherst/Northampton/etc) scene. Worth noting because that area is awesome (and way way cooler than Boston) and that scene gets mistakenly conflated with Boston's all the time.

Kind of disappointed to see House Arrest at #1 as opposed to all of them at #10

Only related in terms of general topic but did anyone check out that new Father tape that dropped? So many already established heavy hitters are doing big things this month that I feel like it might get drowned out of the conversation but it feels like a real moment for Awful Records.

Girlpool is my favorite new band of the last year or so. Personally, I think Chinatown and Ideal World are leaps and bounds better than that new Tame Impala song (but I also think Girlpool EP is leaps and bounds better than Lonerism and never really liked Tame Impala to begin with so what do I know). Love Grimes though! Lower Dens are cool to!

Oh wow, I saw Hop Along open for Waxahatchee last April and am seeing Girlpool opening for Waxahatchee this April. Both are wonderful!

This is awesome! (though "True Love Waits" was always my favorite non-standard album track and I think it should get an honorary inclusion despite your note about it)

"Kanye is the more canonical choice here, but how crazy would it be if Makonnen won a Grammy?" Just imagine the video we'd get if makonnen found out won a grammy while on mushrooms - would make me giggly for days.
