I forget how much I dig peak Decemberists sometimes...

If Weezy can keep stringing together lines like that, we may be in for something of a revival (if he can ever get his shit out).

Somehow I feel like there is a connection between Lil Yachty and jj, but I can't figure out what it is...

This is what happens when you read Infinite Jest with the RNC on in the background.

The lack of love for Seven Swan (the album) is astounding here. The Transfiguration is the perfect song.

How is this getting coverage, yet I can find nothing on this site about Wolf Parade returning from hiatus?

Does anyone else compulsively listen to 'Soldier' every time they read this column? I have no control over it...

Why did I have to search through the newsfeed for a post about this album? I would think that, even if this is not as popular as Earl (whom I love), you would still want to direct people to this album.

Ok the part where CRJ uses Phil Collins drums. I am so down with that.

The production on this song is so good. Seriously had chills at points.

A "disembodied Patrick Swayze spirit-hug" is the only thing I want in this life

Simplicity in musical theory maybe, but if you can listen to the singing on "Great Gig in the Sky" and call that simple, we live in different worlds.

Remember when Kanye said his favorite artist at the moment was James Blake? Welcome to the product of that.

Benji is fantastic. Don't let public personas fool you

Listening to Molina sing "Try hard to beat it" is powerful and terrible all at once. He definitely had insight into depression and its effects that you rarely see.

The point is that you often make your attacks personal and take any criticism of what you write personally. Frankly, I don't mind when people write about not liking music. However, when it is as negative and attacking as your comments, it is frustrating to read. By all means say why you dislike something, but comments like, "This is why independent music is dying because sites like Stereogum have bought into this whole poptimism machine." say more about your personal agenda than the music itself.

Interesting how we can scrutinize female pop stars until we are blue in the face, but as soon as we start talking about how a male pop star presents himself it is "unprofessional". Total double standard.
