Apparently Evan confirmed the official band-endorsed term for Pinegrove stans is Pinenuts.

I don't mind Puth's new direction, tbh, but that video is truly the embodiment of "dorkus malorkus."

Yeah, and I'd add DS2 to that list. But the man has a lot of full-lengths to his name.

I mean, you guys are right, "High And Dry" is super MOR. One of my least favorite Radiohead songs tbh.

I used to cover the Columbus music scene, so I am Facebook friends with a lot of local musicians. In this case people whose taste I respect shared this on Facebook today, and I liked it, so I posted it. It helps to be only a couple Kevin Bacon degrees from a blogger; that social proximity to media is part of the reason bands move to New York or LA.

Well, they do have separate charts for sales and streaming, but Hot 100 and Billboard 200 are now in search of some all-encompassing synthesis that will tell us the most popular singles and albums when all the different means of acquisition are considered. It's definitely some strange chemistry.

Unless the Strokes pulled only from their first two albums, Phoenix's best-of LP would easily be superior

I'm not a Real Animal Collective Fan but I never really ~got~ Strawberry Jam despite its widely beloved status. Give me Sung Tongs, Feels, MPP, and the Panda Bear solo discography and I'm good to go.

Messi came through with the hat trick to punch Argentina's ticket to Russia so I'm sure the U2 show was lit

I don't consider In Rainbows Disk 2 to be part of the album proper — more like a B-sides collection — but it's got some definite bangers (including and especially "Bangers").

On the other hand, I have never been 100 percent all in on a St. Vincent album until this one #tellingitlikeitis

Thanks for sharing! Love this. "Try Everything" ain't that bad. It's a Sia co-write and like most of her output it's just kinda average. Also Zootopia rules.

It's weird to me that you would object to me accurately labelling the first MGMT album as good and the third MGMT album as bad, and that you would be so condescending and rude about it.

You'd play those notes on the D string the last time through because your hand would already be down low on the neck to play the F. Then you'd start the riff over at the third fret and work your way back up the neck.

Hey, you're right! Billboard must have recalculated their figures since they first reported about this on Monday (which was the info I was working with here). Great news!
