Another big week for Kanye West. Of course we all watched Yeezy on Kimmel, where the rap genius/biggest rock star in the world got to prove he has a sense of humor while schooling Americans on François Pinault. Kanye’s also riding high on Billboard‘s Top 20 thanks to a viral video that was soundtracked by… More »

This week we watched Arcade Fire on SNL (and after SNL). We ranked U2’s best albums and St. Vincent’s best songs. We recommended new releases from HAIM and Meek Mill. We looked at the emo revival and the monogenre. Thom Yorke blasted Spotify and some lady insulted Fiona Apple. And Sinead O’Connor revived the lostMore »

Drake’s Nothing Was The Same leaked on Sunday, and Stereogum’s Tom Breihan concluded that while it’s only barely a rap album, rap is more interesting with it around. There’s a good discussion happening under that review so join in if you haven’t yet. Also this week we revealed our 40 Best New Bands Of 2013,… More »

Where were you when you first heard “Reflektor”? I was leaving The Westchester Mall, listening to a Bandcamp stream on my iPhone out of a car stereo. I remember it like it was six days ago. On Monday we saw Reflektor‘s double album cover and learned the band would be playing the season premiere ofMore »

It’s been six days since Miley Cyrus sullied music’s most dignified awards ceremony and my eyes still hurt from reading all the thinkpieces in its wake. We got to drink a lot, though, so it wasn’t for nothing. The VMAs dominated this week’s Shut Up, Dude, but you also had a lot to say about… More »

It’s Amrit Singh’s last day at Stereogum.com. He’s going to Work For Diddy! Amrit was the first writer I hired for Stereogum many years ago, and he quickly became an invaluable part of the operation. He even left behind a law career to do so, so YOU’RE WELCOME AMRIT’S PARENTS. You know him as a… More »

It was another week of controversy, in which Death Grips bailed on Lolla, Daft Punk cancelled Colbert, and Jack White didn’t want to be anywhere near Dan Auerbach. On a lighter note we celebrated 10 years of The O.C., ranked Elvis Costello’s discography, and chose the 10 best Pulp Songs. Here are your best and… More »

I first became aware of Gabe Delahaye’s writing with this Sufjan erotica 7 years ago. I asked him to contribute some features for Stereogum and he delivered Modest Mouse and Tori Amos fanfic that, while never ended up being published, convinced me that Gabe deserved his own blog. We launched Videogum in April 2008 with… More »

You know it’s a slow news week when one of our most discussed articles is about typography. Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised, since you guys are so design-minded. Remember the Stereogum comments meme “As a graphic designer…” from like 7 years ago? I guess not, because nobody referenced it! Speaking of nostalgia, this week we… More »

It was pretty toasty this week, with temperatures reaching like, 140°? 150°? It’s the type of week that makes me wish the Stereogum office had working air conditioning. (We have three desk fans, though.) And it seems the heat has made everyone A LITTLE TESTY. Geoff Barrow beefed with the Weeknd. Atoms For Peace slammedMore »

Since there was no Shut Up, Dude during the holiday break, I was going to make last week’s comments eligible for this installment. But then the whole list would be dominated by responses to EW‘s 100 Greatest Albums and that’s old news. So before we get to this week’s superlatives, note that last week’s Shut… More »

What an exciting week to end the month! SCOTUS struck down DOMA. Wendy Davis filibustered to block a Texas abortion ban. Run The Jewels. We have a lot to celebrate.
