Yes, and you should read it. (It's more about the Strokes and surrounding brouhaha tho.)

It's Waxahatchee. I'm pretty sure she's the only person ever to get AOTW three times. Would probably be Young Thug if his release schedule wasn't so chaotic.

We like corny-ass plays for the cheap seats over here. Spoiler alert: the Haim record is great.

Murphy was talking that shit, tho not directly about the Rapture, back when LCD were first active, too. I loved it. I interviewed him when Sound of Silver was coming out, and he was like, "These bands like Bloc Party are so nice to us, and I just want to DESTROY them."

I miss the Brewer's Art. My old roommate was a manager there. I wonder if Herc actually did fuck Colin Farrell up on the set of Miami Vice.

If any of these guys get huge, you won't have to; they'll find you. Other than that: Maybe Ugly God? If you feel like it? There's nothing you urgently have to check out.

That's better than "made into you," which is how I've been saying it in my head.

Well, hell, man. Thanks for writing such a thoughtful and eloquent response to my probably-unfair review. And thanks for making exactly the record that you wanted to make. That's always the right move, whatever some asshole with a laptop thinks of it. The album so far hasn't worked for me, but, as evidenced by this comments section*, it's working for a whole lot of other people. If you're up for it sometime, I'd love to have a longer conversation, on the record or off, about the way these biographical narratives shape record reviews or about the role of topicality in white-dude music or about all the lyrical details that I didn't pick up. * (I am once again pleasantly shocked at how mellow and articulate and cool the Stereogum readers have been in this here comments section. I knew I'd be in the minority on this album, and I am. But I was also expecting to be fully roasted here, and that mostly hasn't happened. Instead, it's been a great conversation to watch unfold. So uh good job guys.)

Asahd is also credited as a producer. So yeah, I don't think Khaled really produced anything.

I cannot wait to write a Nelly column. The opportunity will almost certainly present itself sometime soon. And I completely forgot about that Hamilton soundtrack song! That was really good!

I missed like 15! They're all amazing! That "Thank You For Sending Me An Angel" performance has always been my favorite, and nobody ever talks about it.
