I don't say "I want that hoodie" often but I want that hoodie.
The fact that this guy basically advocated for the complete eradication of the Middle East after 9/11 makes me powerfully loathe the guy, and the fact that he's got a great voice for country music and an amazing way with melody and a clever turn of phrase... well that makes me resent him even more because I can't even appreciate his good stuff.
I agree with you theoretically and not looking for an argument, but I think that is based on the notion that the way US politics works is, in fact, completely democratic. I'm not sure I'd make that claim.
I think this is very good. Condemns white supremacy and racist police, while also reminding, as the guy who wrote "Ohio" for christ's sake, we should probably slow our roll before setting up a government vs. the people narrative where the government is the good guys.
As Elon gets transparently eviler and stupider, I find it harder and harder to care about this musician I once liked quite a lot but now makes love songs about an evil and stupid man.
Counterpoint: "We give the glory to you God / he make us booyah / throw up the wu like U-God" are some of the worst bars I've heard in the last ten years, and hearing that the album was largely freestyle driven explains a whole lot in that regard.
My A. Savage story is we wound up standing next to each other at a Cheap Trick festival set. I told him I was a fan and we shot the shit about PC beforehand (this was right before Monastic Living came out) and then after the show I asked what he thought. He liked it but thought "no 'Southern Girls' in the setlist was a huge oversight." Didn't peg him for a Cheap Trick guy, but after thinking about it, totally checks out. Really nice guy. That's all I got!
Yup. This one immediately came to mind: https://www.stereogum.com/2015671/cat-power-says-her-new-album-was-rejected-by-matador-who-wanted-her-to-sound-like-adele/
I maintain that Young Nudy's Anyways was the most overlooked trap release of the year. Guy's got a great rap voice, funny bars, and absolutely elastic production. No features too and the album doesn't need them. One of those rap albums that feels like an artist in their absolute zone, and one that invites you in to join him.
It's fascinating. https://www.courthousenews.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/chance-rapper.pdf
Pat's record with Chance isn't spotless– the whole "strong-arming MTV to pull a barely-negative review" situation is still lame as hell. But he undeniably managed an artist through a career trajectory that has never happened before, rap or otherwise. I'm inclined to believe what he's saying here.
It was going to be! On Quibi though, so... lost to time, most likely.
The fine legacy of The SpongeBob Movie introducing young people to Ween through their most "normal" song can be continued via algorithm.
Absolutely top 10 of last year. One of the best disciples-of-Pumpkins albums I've ever heard.
Disagree! I like the husky quality of Post's voice on the second verse more.
No kidding. Can the brand new and shiny Stereogum bring back Straight to Video so we can get Tom's thoughts?
Idk if I like "Dora" as much as any of the loosies she put out last year ("Gloria" is the best) but she can still rap her ass off and is joyfully trend-averse. Impossible not to root for her right now.
