Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Amrit Singh / November 16, 2012
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 »

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 »

This week we anointed Godspeed You! Black Emperor, heard the great new Local Natives, read an insightful Turntable Interview with Grass Widow's Hannah Lew, and remembered why we don't care for the Vines. We gave your 7th Grade nephew a great starter kid to get into DC hardcore, and a… More »

'Tis the week before CMJ, which is the calm before the storm of free PBR and incessant energy drink branding on the streets of LES. ENJOY THE SILENCE. Or well not the silence, exactly, as this is a music blog and we are talking about music all the time. So ENJOY THE WEEKEND, at leaset,… More »

Busy week! We unveiled our list of the 40 Best New Bands Of 2012. We prematurely evaluated albums from Bob Dylan, the Killers, and G.O.O.D. Music. We ranked Grizzly Bear's best songs, Dylan's more obscure LPs, and Pavement's discography. And, of course, we took sides on the More »

This week we deconstructed the xx, DJed with Ed Droste, ranked Sonic Youth's discography, and witnessed the most boring VMAs of all time. But most of this week's highest and lowest rated comments were made on our list of Animal Collective's 10 best songs. Check them out below. More »

A long Labor Day weekend is upon us! Which means this weekend we have some extra time to reflect upon the week that was. And by "reflect on the week that was," of course, I mean only that we will have extra time to relive all of the great and horrible conversations we had i… More »

On Sunday night, we all logged on like a family and listened to the world premiere of Animal Collective's Centipede Hz. Wasn't that fun? Have you been listening to the album non-stop? Do you love Deakin's vocal stylings? Have Abby Portner's visuals given you nightmares? Did you make an Anco You Mix? More »

Congratulations, dear friends, on another week well done! And I mean that for most of you, primarily excepting those of you in the Russian government. You guys need to cool it with your insatiable thirst for mind control and fear of young females with opinions! Obviously the Pussy Riot situation is beyond abominable… More »

This week we witnessed some thoughtful debate about: the new xx track "Chained," Beck's decision to release his next album as sheet music, and our scientific ranking of Blur's 10 best songs. One thing we all agree upon, though, is Muse make a goofy dubstep act. The highest and lowest rated… More »

This week was bookended by a pair of songs -- Animal Collective's "Today's Supernatural" and Grizzly Bear's "Yet Again" -- that come from two of our most anticipated albums of the year. Are you so excited? You guys seem pretty excited about them. I am too. Which do love more? Who would wi… More »

Did you guys have a good Frank Ocean week? We started it with a Channel Orange comment party, then watched the singer's stunning Fallon performance, posted our Premature Evaluation, and dug up a Tyler-guesting CD bonus track you won't find at Target. Good job commenting, everyone. Do you wanna talk about… More »

This week we celebrated Dirty Projectors, Christopher Owens, Frank Ocean, and American independence (with some help from Indie Song Of The Summer champions Japandroids). Let's take a look at what you had to say about all of it, for better or worse…… More »
