Find Me On:
I just can’t understand the mindset of someone who thought that posting a sponsored article on a site primarily geared towards fans of indie rock would work. For better or for worse, the kind of people who frequent Stereogum are the kind of people who would be vehemently opposed to this sort of advertising. But it happened anyway.
Looking at most publications’ AOTY lists, Daft Punk more than falls under the “alt” umbrella.
Or (in reference to your profile picture) the Scissor Sisters.
2004 was a magical place.
I’m fairly sure this sort of thing has happened on the last two National albums, and it never feels like they’re actually a presence there.
Why are their best two albums in the highest two places? Something must have gone wrong at Stereogum this week (yes, it’s this joke again. But srsly.)
Actually, I realised it’s probably because it’d be better to have all these songs as MP3s, which would be nice but, given the law, impossible.
Because that’s what I said!
(srsly i dont get the downthumbs)
Moving to Spotify is definitely a good thing, it was a bit pointless limiting it to freely available MP3s as you said.
Look at Swans all the way down there…
How could anyone put At War With The Mystics above Yoshimi? AWWTM is an incredible patchy album, held up by a handful of strong singles (The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song and The W.A.N.D are the undeniably great). Yoshimi’s a solid listen all the way through though (closing track aside, maybe), and despite what you think about the pop sound they were going for on the two albums, ranking them that way round seems odd.
