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 »

I’mma let you finish Burial, but Beyoncé had one of the best surprise albums OF ALL TIME. Too bad Bevan and Bey did not give us time to consider them for Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013 … hopefully Radiohead will stay quiet until next year. Earlier this week we ranked the year’s best metalMore »
