I am still open to the possibility that she is good.

This happened to me! I was not that stoked about it because I don't believe in astrology, but it definitely helped to distinguish the vibe of this compared to other country shows.

I must say, Pavement and Built To Spill are much more outrageous blind spots than the Antlers and the Twilight Sad

To me the one undeniable masterpiece here is "No One's Sleeping," which I should have mentioned in the review.

The lede from my Fading Frontier review: Around the time of 2010 career pinnacle Halcyon Digest, it became clear that Deerhunter were the greatest indie rock band of their generation. By “indie rock” I mean the fertile niche of guitar-driven noise-pop pioneered by the Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Pavement and their ilk — bands that have a deep reverence for rock ‘n’ roll’s old, weird past and an ear for its future. But however you want to define “indie” or “rock,” which of Deerhunter’s peers has assembled a more captivating, challenging, rewarding catalog over the past decade?

LOL @ the notion that Halcyon Digest, one of the albums of thee decade, wouldn't have deserved AOTW (although I don't think AOTW had been established yet in 2010)

January 15, 2019 on Album Of The Week: Sharon Van Etten Remind Me Tomorrow
Assume Form is out this week! And part of the reason Deerhunter never got AOTW is because their last three albums got Premature Evaluations. No correction or further context needed re: Steve Gunn, though.

This is a great comment! I just want to dispute the notion that my tone is asking readers to "get with the times." There's basically no prescription and only a little value judgment in this piece (the main thing being my ongoing complaint about Top 40 boxing out so much extremely poppy rap). It's mostly just observation about where things stand, with a bit about how we got there and where we're going. Not telling you how to feel about it.

Yeah... everything is more atomized now, so even if Drake had statistically the best year, I don't doubt that MJ was subjectively much bigger in his day.

Meanwhile I've learned the only activity on Van Halen's official Twitter account for the past three years has been an annual happy holidays message: https://twitter.com/VanHalen/status/812346185021145088 https://twitter.com/VanHalen/status/945019005168791552 https://twitter.com/VanHalen/status/1077012667972218881

I assumed he just meant, like, shit is real out there, don’t play around. But given other things Kanye believes, what you’re proposing is certainly not out of the question.
