Does Taylor Swift count as 'the public'? If so, breach of contract? What did the Tang right in for that? Sew your asshole shut and keep feeding you....

Fads, phases, trends, and rages. Guitars aren't going anywhere. And certainly a 15-minute fame band like Icona Pop is not going to change anything. C'mon.

Unfortunately you missed the best Bonnaroo moment of, potentially, all time - the small stage (Solar Stage) show featuring a Supergroup of Soul Khan, Black Violin, Jeni Suk, and Knower. This was an incredible, once-in-a-fucking-lifetime show.

This will be a great song in the next Pixar space adventure movie.

Totally, seanjean. Like you, I clicked on this link for something mature and thoughtful.

May 15, 2013 on The Lonely Island – “I Fucked My Aunt” (Feat. T-Pain)
For as many perfect songs as Destroyer has put forth, his best might actually be the Pitchfork (and 2011-12 touring) version of Libby's First Sunrise. Absolutely crushing.

January 22, 2013 on Grizzly Bear – “Gun-Shy (Lindstrøm Remix)”
I agree with both of these responses in terms of popularity differences, bands of old and new being successful and 'rich', etc. BUT, they key difference in these arguments will continue to be the difference in The Times. The 'Bleach' of 2012 would not sell 2M copies, obviously, because the model has changed so drastically since 1989.

Sounds like we should all just wait for Bonnacruise then.

I'll keep an open mind, but I kind of agree. Was hoping this would be more driving or electronic - basically hoping for more 'Keep Your Eyes Ahead'.

My last name is Fox and I STILL find this band name to be laughable....but good song.

Can we all collectively stop describing time passing as having been a "minute" or a "moment"? It looks even more ridiculous than it sounds.

Those are some sick beatz, homie! A collaboration with Pink seems like the logical next step. I can't wait to hear that hourly on every super awesome top 40 radio station that Washington DC offers me!!! ;-)

September 23, 2011 on Five Indie Types Who Would Do Well On X Factor… And Five Who Wouldn’t
Hartford nailed it. Newsflash - most bands are just cool dudes like most of us that read Stereogum, except they are more committed to actually being in music. Thus, they like the same great bands we like. Some bands are meant to stay under the radar (because they just aren't good enough to be popular/widely known).

August 31, 2011 on Hear Jack White Collab With Insane Clown Posse And JEFF The Brotherhood
I actually agree with the duchess here. Anyone who suggests that this type of song and a best coast type of song are wholly different is pretty delusional. Those types of people are the a-holes who also probably helped create 'genres' that are way too specific. Do we ever really need to describe music as 'post-punk disco' or 'witch house'? Fuck you hipster. As far as this song goes specifically, it isn't great. Coming Down is phenomenal and this a step back.

This is shockingly good. I honestly didn't expect such a great sophomore album, but this has a classic feel. Well done.
