I walked by Barclays Center earlier tonight and saw some kids outside with lint rollers. Take that, Canada! Not that I don’t appreciate the levity; it was a rough week. DJ Rashad and DJ E-Z Rock died. Paul Simon and Edie Brickell were arrested after a domestic disturbance. Warpaint’s guitarist slut-shamed Beyoncé and Rihanna. Lily… More »

In case you missed the last five days: it was Britpop Week on Stereogum. We celebrated the 20th anniversaries of His ‘N’ Hers and Parklife, released a week apart in the spring of ’94. We also recalled Britpop’s B-list, watched the Live Forever documentary, drew a Damon Albarn & Noel Gallagher Timeline, reminisced about BritpopMore »

Anyone excited for Record Store Day? I’m in line outside NYC’s Other Music* right now and in 14 hours that glow-in-the-dark Ray Parker, Jr. 10″ is mine.

There was a point during last night’s minimally audacious Rock & Roll ceremony — maybe halfway through the E Street Band’s interminable shoutouts — when I remarked to the guy from Billboard that this was the opposite of Coachella. But boy did that Nirvana coda make the whole thing worthwhile. It was surreal and thrilling… More »

We started off this week with news from Ultra Music Festival, which sounded like a bit of a disaster. Hopefully vibes are more mellow at next weekend’s Coachella (don’t forget your Hydroxycut). Hot off his SNL debut, rising UK soul singer Sam Smith was the subject of The Week In Pop. We looked at the… More »

“And I swear that I don’t have a gun.”
— Kurt Cobain, “Come As You Are”

Despite the pledge in those lyrics that went around the world in the early 1990s, police in Seattle say that Kurt Cobain did have at least one gun.
That was the widely mocked lede (since removed)… More »

I bet you guys thought I was skipping Shut Up, Dude this week. I would never! Just because much of the music world has reconvened in Austin does not mean Stereogum’s commenters shouldn’t be celebrated and chastised in list format like normal. (Although, yes we skipped this week’s 5 Best Songs/Videos countdowns. Weak week.) Of… More »

We reviewed new albums from Migos, Real Estate, Aloe Blacc, the Men, and Rick Ross. We ranked Iron Maiden’s albums worst to best. We spoke to Heems,… More »

This week we reviewed albums from Schoolboy Q, Pharrell Williams, Kid Cudi, and Lakutis. We celebrated the 20th and 10th anniversaries of Mellow Gold and The Grey Album, respectively, and ranked the White Stripes’ 10 best songs. James Murphy made news with new coffee and vinyl and detailed his dream of new turnstiles. We spoke… More »

This week we reviewed new releases by Beck, Angel Olsen, and Lil Herb. We welcomed Jimmy Fallon and the RootsTonight Show, with its U2 and Arcade Fire performances, and we said goodbye to the Walkmen (again).

Later this month he’ll appear on the first week of Late Night With Seth Meyers, which has a house band featuring Fred Armisen and members of Les Savy Fav. Meanwhile, Nike unexpectedly dropped his Red October Air Yeezys and… More »

We kicked this week off with coverage of the Grammys and the public apologies to Kendrick Lamar and Trent Reznor that came in its aftermath. Daft Punk won big, but had to take their helmets off at the airport like the rest of us. On the reunion front, we heard from Afghan Whigs, Fleetwood Mac,… More »

Who’s excited about the Grammys? Maybe excited isn’t the right word. Who’s aware the Grammys happen this Sunday? Stereogum will be watching and if you are too you should head here for our annual Comment Party and Drinking Game. What else are you gonna watch, wrestling? Read a book? Chris broke down the nominees i… More »

Would you like a Coachella? OutKast! The Replacements! Neutral Milk Hotel! Is your favorite band playing? Did you need a magnifying glass to find them on the poster? Jokes aside, I hope you saved your Coinyes ’cause it’s a pretty interesting lineup. Of course mine is a little better (I lied about jokes aside). Lot… More »

It’s only a week into 2014 and we’ve already seen Beyoncé, Questlove, and Ani Difranco forced to apologize for (or at least acknowledge) questionable behavior made late last year. Social media is really just a giant gotcha game now. I notice no one has apologized for mashing up Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory with “Gangnam Style,”More »

Remember all the fun we had in 2013? Remember Billy Corgan’s furniture commercial? Remember the $5,700 Boards Of Canada 12″? Remember the National’s six hour “Sorrow”? Remember Lysandre? Tomorrow will mark 12 years since I started Stereogum, and it’s thanks to you guys — your awesome tips, comments, and shares — that it’s still around. More »
