Death Grips are going to have to relegate themselves to setting up a drumkit and not showing up at basement shows only.

October 28, 2020 on The Number Ones: Ready For The World’s “Oh Sheila”
The only people on the site that get comments about being industry plants, or not really being talented enough to get by without industry connections or whatever are people like Clairo, Haim, Beabadoobee, and Greta Kline. In this particular instance it's hard not to see a pattern. The 1975 are criticised in their own merits (or lack thereof), not because Healy's parents are celebrities.

"Most Likely To Remake “Iris” As A Christmas Song:"
"Iris You a Merry Christmas" would probably do pretty well as December grocerycore, TBH.

Similarly, "The Rhime of the Ancient Mariner" sits perfectly over the "Gilligan's Island" theme.

October 26, 2020 on The Number Ones: Dire Straits’ “Money For Nothing”
"Walk of Life" was probably the first pop song I really got into by myself instead of just listening into whatever my mum was playing on the radio. The video is also the closest I've ever come to giving a crap about sports. It's always going to be at least an 8 for me for personal reasons.

"Turning Japanese" being about wanking is just a stupid urban myth that won't die.

October 26, 2020 on The Number Ones: Dire Straits’ “Money For Nothing”
He's only able to be a certified lover boy because they changed the Billboard rules. Pre-Spotify he'd get, like, a participation certificate at best.

October 25, 2020 on Drake Announces New Album Certified Lover Boy Out In January
If I recall my loverboy theory correctly, everybody is working for the Weeknd. So the not-even-a-boss loverboys are definitely cornier than an actual-boss loverboy.

I'm still annoyed that y'all ignored "The New Abnormal" for the mid-year best album list. It was awesome then, it's still awesome now.

October 25, 2020 on The Strokes Playing John Mulaney-Hosted SNL On Halloween
Decades of watching relatively cheap gigs 10m or less from the stage have pretty much ruined the chances of me ever being interested in stadium shows. Swift is one of the few that'd actually be worth it.

Little dude all of a sudden rocking the fuck out real hard was the cutest shit ever. Non-baby runners up go to Hinds-in-a-fishbowl, Sasami's Martian sidekick, and Slow Pulp just killing it in general.

Nah, Hewlett's ability to find new cultural points of reference to cram together 40 years into his career is amazing. That orange Wurlitzer keyboard in itself is amazing.

October 23, 2020 on Stream Gorillaz’s Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez
I wouldn't be surprised if this overtook "1989" as my favourite Swift album eventually. It's ridiculously consistent, but just a tad overlong, and the decision to relegate "Ours" to a bonus track is fucking stupid.

Definitely the greatest guitar solo that's meant to sound like "an electrical charge between two poles on a Wimshurst high voltage generator". *shrugs* Eno's gonna Eno.

Nah, the neon Billy Idol mural in a Barbie pink apartment bumps the film up to at least a 6. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-O6h7rl3EaN4/VZ5pnW_YufI/AAAAAAAARGw/oakKscXI8Kw/s640/sef%2Bidol.jpg

October 23, 2020 on The Number Ones: John Parr’s “St. Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion)”
Johnny Opus (I'm assuming that's his name) deciding to just march on the spot for the entirety of the song and fully committing to it is glorious. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQSmfR1_SVE Also, could someone with a Twitter account and a bunch of free time start harassing Opeth to cover this? It worked for Weezer that one time, so it's worth a shot.

This is the only outright positive one I can think of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmlubhrI7Dc All the other ones that come to mind (Dancing with Myself, Three Times a Day, Longview, Orgasm Addict) have either slightly negative undertones or outright self-loathing.

This is just a precursor to their coke-diss ad, based on "White Lines (Don't Do It)".

Maybe this'd be settled a lot easier if they didn't insist on speaking a made up language when they took the stand.

October 20, 2020 on Sigur Rós Speak Out Against Iceland For Second Tax Evasion Trial: “They’re Treating Us Like Criminals”
Gorillaz has to be getting its own writeup, right? Most of the stuff off it has been really solid. Even that keyboard theme at the start of the clips gets me pretty hyper.

Doesn't even matter what the setlist is. They're one of the most reliable live bands, with one of the most enthusiastic audiences, going.
