By Scott Lapatine / March 1, 2013
This week we announced the lineup to Range Life 2013, our annual event during SXSW. If you'll be at the fest, please join us for free Taco Bell. If you'll be stuck in a cubicle somewhere, Morrissey will probably have some beef for you. In addition to Moz, we had plenty to write… More »

Bonnaroooo. I've already booked my plane tickets and am looking forward to seeing "Weird Al" for the first time. Maybe of some of you are too. The Tennessee fest's lineup reveal was our most popular post in a week that also brought a new tune from Phoenix, reviews of Atoms For PeaceMore »

We kicked off this week with a comment party for the Grammys, a pretty tame ceremony from which we managed to find 10 least boring moments. We heard new songs from Tyler, The Creator, the Postal Service, and the Strokes. We ranked the Who's discography and Tegan AndMore »

Superblizzard Nemo is upon us, and hopefully you are reading this from someplace warm and dry, ears wrapped in My Bloody Valentine's tremendous return, m b v. That was our must-hear album for a busy week that brought news from Beyoncé, Vampire Weekend, and James Blake. We also rankedMore »

By Scott Lapatine / January 25, 2013
This week's Shut Up, Dude comes from lovely, almost-sunny Los Angeles, where last night we brought Merchandise to Sonos Studio. This year's Coachella lineup was released within minutes of the band's first song so it was a pretty buzzy evening. Are you going to Coachella? Are you so stoked for the reunited Stone… More »

This week we welcomed the return of David Bowie, who will release a new album in March. Too bad he won't play Coachella, even though someone wants us to think he will. We also ranked the Smiths discography; reviewed albums from Yo La Tengo, Christopher Owens, and DropkickMore »

And we're back. It's the first Shut Up, Dude of the year, and the first post of the day because something happened to our server last night. I don't know what, exactly, but we looked into the node rebuild status (?) and things are stable again. Thanks for bearing with us. Anyway. Earlier this week… More »

As 2012 comes to a close, it's once again time to take a look back at the the past twelve months in comments. Tomorrow will be this site's 11th birthday and we could not have lasted this long without you. And Lana Del Rey. Without quick-witted and hot-headed responses to our posts, things around here… More »

This week we published our list of The 50 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2013 with My Bloody Valentine at #1. A dubious choice perhaps; but, two days later the band announced they'd completed mastering a new album. It was a Christmas miracle. Post-holiday, we listed the year's Top 30 Electronic Dance TracksMore »

I've been so busy this Black Friday (napping, Homeland, napping) I almost forgot to post this week's Shut Up, Dude. While this was an abbreviated posting week, you still had plenty to discuss… We deconstructed the Mumford-ization of pop and the Internet Radio Fairness Act. We championed new releases from the EvensMore »

It's the weekend, so while y'all probably have some Gilette shit to do right about now, let's quickly knowingly head-nod at each other but how jam-friendly this week was. Autre Ne Veut, for instance. Or permajam candidates Yo La Tengo. This week we also welcomed Johnny Marr the solo artist, along… More »

What a week, friends. My Bloody Valentine guaranteed a new album within the next eight weeks, Sufjan connected on a patriotic new jam, Lushlife hooked up a great video, we thought about rock operas, Depeche Mode, and Swans, and re-elected the Presiden Of The United States Of America. We… More »

This week, man. Things are dire in our hometown, and we hope the reading of these blogposts were as successful (and temporary) a diversion as writing them has been. The real recap of this week is, shit in NYC is fucked (see also: the Marathon is still happening this weekend?)(UPDATE: It's not!), and… More »

By Amrit Singh / October 26, 2012
The week after CMJ always feels like the first week of the holiday season. Maybe it's because the festivals are done for the year, and we begin thinking in earnest about the sorts of lists we will assault you with for the year's end, or maybe it's just because we hang out on our… More »
