This kind of stuff is why I no longer follow Stereogum (not that I expect anyone to care, of course). I'm not trying to make a grandiose statement, but it's just sad to see what this place has become. I've been a reader for a long time. It started out with legitimately great articles about intriguing indie artists and slowly over time, morphed into a poor man's Rolling Stone, pandering to overhyped and overpaid pop stars . Guys, Taylor Swift doesn't need your help... she has legions of ten year-olds buying her music. And unless the readers around here are genuinely interested in the goings-on of T Swift and co., I'm perplexed at why she's getting any attention whatsoever via this blog. At this point, SPIN magazine has more of an exclusively-indie focus than Stereogum, which is kind of a bummer. Feel free to downvote the hell out of this comment if you want, but if someone could please explain to me why this site has seen such a rise in "poptimism" as of late, with roughly half of its focus consisting of flavor of the week Top 40 praise, that would be far more helpful. I want to understand!

Beta Love was a letdown but I'm holding out hope for this one. Big fan of the first two albums.

Stopped by Stereogum to see if there was anything worth reading. I guess the answer is still no.

The single cover reminds me of the cover for Hurley in that they are both artless and look like the result of a google image search.

I saw Dan Deacon once and got a headache. I think it was when he played a chopped and screwed version of the theme from Super Mario Bros and it roared out of his speakers like a jet engine.

I'm not a fan of Miley but what she's doing kinda gives me hope for the future of pop music. Maybe her Dead Petz project will help steer pop as a whole into more experimental terrain.

Twitter is dumb. Unless you're a thirteen year old girl, you shouldn't be on it in the first place. And Stereogum should stop writing about it.

It would be funny if the next Star Wars movie featured a Jar-Jar Binks-style character named Jeff Tweedy, and when questioned about it, J.J. Abrams claims he knows nothing about Wilco.

So because he's a weird celebrity, he's not allowed to have fun? Thanks for the update, TMZ.

If you agree with everything that I'm saying, downvote this comment!
