Yuck – “Milkshake”

It's surprising it took a British band this long to come up with a name that plays on "UK" as simply as "Yuck" -- and also somewhat ironic since the band Yuck looks so far away (at the US circa the '90s in particular) for inspiration. Their self-titled debut is either a delight or annoyance… More »

Final Destination 5 Trailer, You Guys.

Oh, BROTHER. It doesn't make any sense for me to get mad about this, because I've never seen any of these movies, but I can't help it! Five is SO MANY SEQUELS! What, are movie studio execs worried that there's too much interesting, original content out there? "There are just no more ideas out there,… More »

Yuck – “Doctors In My Bed”

The UK's best '90s indie rock band also to have been born in the '90s have released a b-side to the "Get Away" single. The "Get Away" single is a very good one, as is the band's reverently styled, well written debut LP Yuck. Grab a HandiCam, some sun, a flannel, a car ride… More »

Come March every year, the same questions are asked, retreaded thought pieces get pitched: What does it mean to have a music industry festival in the decrepit climate of 2011?

The Hunt For The Worst Movie Of All Time: I’m Still Here

UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. What WAS that? I know it wasn't a movie, so now the trick is to figure out what it actually was. I know it wasn't a joke, because jokes are funny. It theoretically could have been a hoax, except that for something to be a hoax, people have to believe for at least one… More »

James Franco Reminds Us That College Is Kind Of Stupid

College can be pretty cool. I think my favorite part of college was the tiny glasses in the cafeteria so that you could get one of each kind of soda and also one of each kind of milk. So cool. You'd finish your lunch and you'd still have, like, six half-full glasses of drinks you… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: January & February 2011

After a holiday break and an inclemently weathered January, our Monthly Mix series returns with a two-month/one-mix compilation that sets a defiant tone. If not for the year, then for the persistently re-accumulating, gut-checking frost. The key elements (aside from recency and excellence) are electronics and sequence, with a late-mix flip to stringed instruments, before… More »

We Should All Be So Lucky As To Find Something In This World That Makes Us Happy: Record Number Of Quarters In Belly Button

In the flush of the holiday season, it was almost possible for a moment to forget that the world is an endless and inescapable nightmare. Would an endless and inescapable nightmare have so much EGG NOG? (Go to bed, church. Egg nog is the true opiate of the masses.) Although, anyone who was, for example,… More »

While We Were Out

... and then it was 2011. Hopefully your New Year's celebration involved doing something more celebratory than being berated by a solo Ariel Pink from a makeshift stage in a Bushwick warehouse, and hopefully you are back on the internet with a lot of hard drive space and some well rested ears: There wa… More »

The 12 Most NSFW Videos Of 2010

Gwyneth Paltrow Singing “Shake That Thing” From Country Strong

There are a number of ways in which Gwyneth Paltrow is terrible. There is her self-satisfaction and her condescension and her choices in baby names and Tracy Anderson and her lifestyle newsletter and the fact that she has adopted Britishisms like using "stone" as a weight measurement without any seeming awarene… More »

Am I missing something? Is every single last jail cell in America full? Is that the problem? Because let me tell you something: WE CAN SOLVE THAT PROBLEM.
