Forgot to include this but the best part of my Independence Day was sitting in the inflatable pool out back with my kids, sipping an Elvis Juice, listening to Apple's Rosalía Essentials playlist and then Channel Orange.

That (very fair and reasonable) approach only applies when the album is a late-career turd, not the best thing an artist has ever released

I guffaw at the thought of a consensus 10 best Spoon songs... would be a fun exercise though, may have to take a crack at it someday. In the meantime here are outdated album rankings from the same ex-contributor who left "Smells Like Teen Spirit" off his Nirvana top 10 smh: https://www.stereogum.com/1298482/spoon-albums-from-worst-to-best/franchises/counting-down/

There's a deep connection between TNV's shitgaze scene and guys like Kurt Vile and Ryley Walker. So maybe if one of those guys curates an ATP-type fest someday they'll get TNV to reunite for that.

They are! But all evidence suggests they ain't coming back (other than the occasional local fest reunion gig every legendary Columbus indie band seems to wind up playing).

July 1, 2019 on Sky Ferreira Comments On Music Industry Exploitation In Light Of Taylor Swift/Scooter Braun Feud
Not sure if this question is being posed genuinely or if it's just snark, but: We can and do update posts, but you can only update so many times before the post becomes unwieldy and user-unfriendly.

July 1, 2019 on Sky Ferreira Comments On Music Industry Exploitation In Light Of Taylor Swift/Scooter Braun Feud
That was a little phrase I edited in... I don't know exactly where you'd draw the line but I think it gets the point across in terms of their shift from bookish indie pop to, like, the showtune equivalent of bookish indie pop. (That is not meant to be dismissive, Dear Catastrophe Waitress is my second favorite B&S after Sinister.)
