What a dick. After he’s publicly ridiculed someone else for doing the same thing, how can he not be more prepared? This is like Morrissey accidentally eating a steak.
Only listened to “6 God” and wasn’t even remotely impressed.
Debuting commercial pop songs in actual commercials makes too much sense.
He’s trying way to hard to be channel his inner Iggy Pop here. Comes off looking like a nerd.
Eh, I tried but Eric Church just doesn’t do much for me. Now Sturgill Simpson on the other hand, that dude is making some great music. “Meta-Modern Sounds in Country Music” is one of the better albums I’ve heard all year and I’m far from a full blown country fan.
I’m firmly anti-brunch. I mostly just hate the word, brunch. It sounds so gross.
Also, I can’t wait for the inevitable three way beef for all between Mark, Morrissey, and Kanye. Not sure what the argument is gonna be about, probably paparazzi seals who look like they belong in a beer commercial or something.
Just let it go man. It was never funny and the longer you keep stretching it out the more awkward and embarrassing it becomes for everyone involved. At this point is there any doubt the next Sun Kil Moon album is gonna be 100% about the War on Drugs with song titles like “Beer Commercial Guitar Bullshit” and “Fucking Mark Knopfler Scum” and finally “I Really Want The War on Drugs to Suck My Cock and They Won’t Do it So We Aren’t Friends Anymore (We Never Were)”?
Listened to this during my morning bus ride a few times this week and I’ve gotta say it’s probably right up there with the best albums of the year for me.
Just re-read this and realize it sounds way more confrontational than I intended. No disrespect to Stereogum, I’m just a bit of a hater when it comes to the whole “All Pop Music is Great!” idea that seems to be infecting all major music sites these days. Stereogum is by no means the worst offender in this area. I was just presenting my own differing opinion on the song which is that it’s boring and unremarkable.
