I don't care about Antonoff enough to hate him as much as others do, I mean, he's got pretty great pop instincts and he's pretty thoughtful. At the same time, I don't get the hype behind Melodrama and none of the Bleachers stuff has stuck with me. I am eager to hear what he does with St. Vincent because I also love her pop instincts and thoughtfulness. My main thought, though, is that this was an excellent read. God I love long-form Stereogum pieces.

That whole album is super impressive. It's a cousin to TPaB honestly in production and lyricism. I hope it gets the credit it deserves.

I downloaded twelve albums last night but I haven't been able to listen to most of them because I just have this on repeat. It's fucking incredible.

Oh holy damn, this is great news! I had no idea she had something coming out. She's one of my favorite parts of TPaB still and her Tiny Desk concert was one of my favs of the last few years. That guest list is incredible, I'm really pumped for this album now.

This is beautiful. Dev Hynes is a beautiful human (and Charlotte too of course)

SO HAPPY at the #1 pick. Communicating immediately jumped into my 2017 top ten yesterday, it's so beautiful and refined. Initially I wasn't crazy about "Blanket Me," but in that penultimate spot it works so well. I love that even though the first couple tracks are the most upbeat, they carry a flow through the rest of the album that doesn't once get too subdued or boring. Honestly this is a better moody indie release for me than Sleep Well Beast.

"Battle Born" might suck, but I have never not thought "Runaways" was an absolutely killer single.

I listened to Hundred Waters all day yesterday and it's probably their best album.

Perfect after that "old and out of touch line" too, nice curmudgeonly palate cleanser.

This is awesome. Also it seems every time I listen to a new Destroyer track I move right on to my regular listen to "The Laziest River" because it's in the recommended YouTube videos.

She's an incredible actress. So good in that new show The Deuce, too.

I set a reminder for myself to start watching it. Pretty incredible so far. This woman is magic.

If this is how the whole Taylor album rollout is going to go on Stereogum I'm going to have a very bad time the next couple months.

Insecure has some of the best soundtrack choices on TV. Props to their music supervisor.

I figured that was the case, thanks for the reply. I guess what I really hate is when songs go live on Apple music first.

September 6, 2017 on Daniele Luppi & Parquet Courts – “Talisa” (Feat. Karen O)
I really really really hate when you guys just post the Apple music link. At least with Spotify links there's a free option so you can still hear it. But it's such a hassle to click on an exciting song link and then have to go track down the song myself on another service. Can't you just post the YouTube link?

This is dumb but I have to comment anyway. Why "Dirty Diana" but no "Smooth Criminal?"

Do you mean one moment of calm during which you bawl your eyes out before leaving the theater? What a film. I'm planning on seeing it a second time today.

I've been hoping there would be a conversation on Stereogum at some point about it, but now that I'm here I don't have much to say. Except that I'm still scared.

It may be background music, but it's so worth it to focus and listen in the foreground. TWFM slipped through the first few times I heard it, then I gave it another chance a year later and it became my favorite National album.
