October 11, 2019 on Watch Big Thief’s Stunning Performance Of “Not” On Colbert
That's not exactly what this article is about but you are correct that "Old Town Road" is a glaring omission, even if it's only adjacent to these sorts of songs, which are mostly self-serious and the opposite of internet-savvy

Nah it looks like they mix it up from night to night — they played "Skinny Love" at the prior show

The person who is writing it has been on quasi-vacation but it will materialize today, get hype

I am one of those people whose life was changed. This is not on that level but it’s the closest they’ve gotten since A Ghost Is Born. Way better than Sky Blue Sky.

(I say that as an ignoramus who hasn't even listened to their whole discography but this is the most popular one)

This will not happen until one of two endorsement deals budges: Taylor x Diet Coke or Super Bowl Halftime Show x Pepsi

September 20, 2019 on New Leonard Cohen Album Thanks For The Dance Out This Fall
I was riding for that album back then though, so the arc is really more of a straight line (unless Tom is all about solo-chek)

September 16, 2019 on Caroline Polachek – “So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings”
I definitely not regret giving it a stronger push in our mid-year list voting. Will have to rectify that at year's end.

I dunno if you will see this d-brad but I agree with you, 2014 was not up to par

September 13, 2019 on The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
Looks like his last #1 was "OMG" in 2010 and his last top 10 hit was "Scream" in 2012. He still went top 20 with "Climax" (2012) and "I Don't Mind" (2014), both of which are masterpieces IMO. But the best he could do with 2016's Hard II Love is #32 for "No Limit," which was especially sad because "Crash" from that album was so great.

September 9, 2019 on Dean Blunt & Panda Bear Team For New Songs “In Plain Sight” & “Moments”
If they would have released the whole thing all at once with no advance singles people would feel differently about it.

September 6, 2019 on Sleater-Kinney Still Kick Fucking Ass
Sometimes I get bored of writing this column, but whenever I'm reminded that I can outrage snobs by suggesting I caught some glimpse of a Serious Artiste in a bland pop artist, my passion is reinvigorated

We aren't going to keep doing it every time a new song hits #1... this was more to establish that the churn has returned

They may be referring to stuff like this:

I thought about referencing Blunt but the pile of namechecks was already getting pretty big

August 15, 2019 on Look Out America, Here Comes Lewis Capaldi
I dunno, if I had written a bunch of classic songs, I imagine I would continue to enjoy performing them to an adoring response from large crowds of people.
