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. But first, let’s take a look back at the week’s top Stereogum stories… We welcomed back the Dismemberment Plan and the Pixies. We “deconstructed” indieMore »

It’s officially summer and we’re asking you to pick the season’s defining jam. The poll officially launched yesterday and you can vote here. This week also saw our most-discussed Premature Evaluation of the year so far with Tom’s Yeezus review. Elsewhere we listed the 10 best Pink Floyd songs and ranked Black Sabbath albums, worstMore »

If you’ve found Yeezus, join our ongoing Comment Party, and feel free to revisit our song of the summer kick-off to nominate a song from the album. Amrit and I are at Bonnaroo this weekend, and you can follow us at @scottgum and @amritsingh for reviews, photos, and ZZ Top Vines. But first, relive your… More »

This week’s most discussed story was our list of the Top 25 Albums Of 2013 So Far. What an almost half of a year it’s been! We’re giving one of you the top 10 from our list on vinyl, so if you haven’t commented on that post with your 2013 favorite(s) go do that and… More »

Big week for heavy music on the ‘Gum. Our Premature Evaluation of Deafheaven’s Sunbather was the week’s most discussed post, Kylesa’s Ultraviolet was our Album Of The Week, we streamed A Pregnant Light’s Domination Harmony, and our latest installment of The Black Market counted down the month’s 15 best metal songs. Elsewhere, we posted a… More »

One week ago, Kanye premiered Yeezus’s ferocious “New Slaves” by projecting his face onto buildings throughout the world. (He performed it the next day on SNL, too.) It was the best video of the week and you can watch it on the side of a building IRL tonight in these cities. The rapper’s new music… More »

This was the week we finally got to hear Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. As hosts of the album’s official launch party, the town of Wee Waa, Australia was especially excited. We also had a party (of the unofficial, digital kind), at which you guys shared your initial reactions to the set. The LP’s o… More »

It’s Friday, the weather is finally nice, and we have a lot of great new albums to get more familiar with, namely the National’s Trouble Will Find Me, Vampire Weekend’s Modern Vampires Of The City, and Savages’ Silence Yourself. Add those to recent releases by Deerhunter, Kurt Vile, the Knife, Kvelertak, Waxahatchee, MBV, Yo La… More »

Welcome back Neutral Milk Hotel! The E6 heroes have only announced a few fall tour dates, but more are coming. Which is good, because tickets sold out immediately and are pretty pricey on eBay. Speaking of… you’ve got three more days to bid on that Boards Of Canada Record Store Day 12″. It’s currently at… More »

Along with a glimpse of Daft Punk’s new suits and song titles, this week we finally got to hear “Get Lucky.” Expectations for the full track couldn’t have been higher and some of you were disappointed by it. Nevertheless it was a big week for the duo, and for their fellow countrymen Phoenix, whose performanceMore »

Coachella is here! And comment voting is back! Two reasons to celebrate for sure. Back in my day, Coachella was only one weekend, and bottled water was only a nickel. If you’re in Indio, don’t forget to drink water (and don’t eat your wristband). Also say hi to Danny DeVito for me. If you’re not… More »

It’s Friday and our comment voting plug-in is still on the fritz. We should have a replacement up and running soon, though. For now we’ll have to consider every comment made this week to be the best, and call it a tie. Congrats! In lieu of the list then, here’s a look back at the… More »

This week you guys offered a lot of insightful discourse while knowing full well your fellow readers could not validate you with a THUMBS UP or DOWN. Yes, our comment rating tools are still missing (we’re working on it, ETA IDK) so there was no highest and lowest rated comments this week. That means thi… More »

If you visited here Wednesday afternoon you saw all the post copy on the site replaced with 0s. That was not intentional. It was a malware attack. We’ve since fixed it, but had to disable comment voting (the plugin has known vulnerabilities we need to patch up). So this week’s Shut Up, Dude rankings are… More »

This week’s Shut Up, Dude comes to you from SXSW, where bands and brands play nice (mostly) for a marathon of free music and open bar. Stereogum’s annual Range Life event goes down in a few hours at Hype Hotel — we’ve got Sky Ferreira, Youth Lagoon, Kitty, METZ, Hundred Waters, Bleeding Rainbow, and MC… More »
