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 »

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 »

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.

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.

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.
