July 29, 2020 on Merge Records Cuts Ties With Ian Svenonius After His Post Admitting “Inappropriate” Behavior Toward Women
At this point you may as well spin off a new Stereogum vertical dedicated to cataloging deviant behavior in the industry. Seems there's no dearth of daily content.

There are no coincidences. . . (You must admit this particular synchronicity is rather insane! )

So great. There's a lot of good singer songwriters going today, but very few, if any, can touch Angel's level of spellbinding using just a voice and a guitar.

You mean "soy boy"? I didn't think of it as a slur or it is literally connected to a plant based diet (which I support). I think of it more as a ridiculous Portlandia-esque parody of a certain type of dude. Which, admit it, you can probably clearly visualize with just those 2 words?

July 29, 2020 on Avi Buffalo Accused Of Rape By Former Bandmate
You should re-read my comment and the comment I was responding to. I am not saying assault didn't always exist. What I am saying is that a blanket assumption that *all bands* are committing assault and using that assumption to keep you from ever elevating *any band* is depressing. THAT'S the depressing thought - keeping one fulling buying into any band out of a fear they might one day prove to be bad people. I'll stick with my longtime heroes that have no dirt on them, and keep looking for new, young heroes. I'll leave the assumptions of unknown misdeeds to you guys.

They had a brief moment in LA. "What's in it for?" was everywhere. There was this weird disconnect between what they looked like (small and young) and what they wrote about and sounded like. It's not entirely surprising to learn that the main man was a deviant.

Cowards. Have some heroes. Real heroes, not this piss weak indie shit like Avi. If they turn out to be bitches or bastards, dump them and find another.

There's an idea in here. Somewhere. It's probably more the deceptive ally soy-boy type rather than the MRA/incel type that is most pernicious in this particular lower strata of the "indie" world.

Unfortunately this asshole's strongest play if he wants to refute this is probably to sue her for breach and defamation.

So you just assume some bands are led by rapists in every era? And that possibility keeps you from holding any artist up on a pedestal? That's a depressing thought.

Yeah, they probably were stretching the social distancing boundaries. It's gonna happen. It was primarily a select 0:02 clip that the online mob used to form the firm opinion that everyone in attendance was willfully committing a murder suicide. It's like, come on.

July 28, 2020 on NY Health Dept. Will Investigate Chainsmokers’ Dicey Hamptons Concert For FuckJerry Tequila
I do hate that it's Chainsmokers in this incident, but at some point we have to realistically look at the percentages and make decisions, both for "essential" services and leisure and entertainment. The whole "we're all gonna die" hysteria has got to die down.

I'm no fan of these bros, but it's clear that contempt for Chainsmokers is being disguised as concern for health and well being. The reality is that indoor retail and outdoor dining in many places has moved well past "essential" and inching closer to business as usual. Just because the artists in this particular incident are annoying doesn't mean there is any additional inherent risk than those other activities.

Don't tell these hysterical Twitter doomsdayers what thousands of (indoor) Walmarts, Targets, Home Depots, Costcos, etc, across the country look like on a daily basis. Their heads may explode.

She got shot in both feet? And both times they missed bones? All things considered she's pretty lucky on that count.

Good man. No matter the lineage, this album is a nonstarter. It's like if Paul Thomas Anderson made a movie starring Kim Kardashian. "Yes, her whole career is garbage, but she's really good in this, you'll like it!!!" Pass.

July 23, 2020 on Taylor Swift Announces New Album folklore Out Tonight, Largely Produced By Aaron Dessner
No, cynical is releasing 16 (!) distinct pieces of product - 8 "deluxe" CDs and LPs - to milk fans' wallets. Also, stretching the credits of the video beyond the creative roles to include producers to be able to show a couple of women's names could be seen as cynical.

"...a culture built on pedophilic tendencies and teenage fetishization, allowing predators access to the thousands of teenagers ..." How many other companies and industries could this description apply to...? Let's keep taking them down, one by one.

This current run of Gorillaz tracks is pure fire, as they say. And he's still got a Tame Impala collab track yet to drop. Song Machine's shaping up to be the 3rd best Gorillaz LP if the back half can at least match this quality.

I suspect this is some kind of act, some character. This is NOT to give this clown any credit. He's probably not some kind of provocateur like Andy Kaufman; he may not even be in on the joke. But someone in his circle definitely is and sets these situations up. It just seems too easy (or sad) to write off as mental illness. But toward exactly what purpose, to what end it all is, is the question.

Maybe you haven't noticed... but all these fools are very wealthy. Like very very wealthy. So you can stop wasting god's time with prayers for them.

As most seem to think, a welcome, smart move. Picking apart the bad parts of RHCP (eg, 75% of their discography) is like shooting fish in a barrel and comedy is better when punching up. I wonder if revisiting Kiedis's autobio played a part in reconsidering. There is some dark stuff in there that can't really be joked about easily.

Do you keep a list of artists' BDS comments at your finger tips? Is it a little laminated card? Or perhaps a Google sheet being continually updated?

This is a plan I can get behind. Even if it's a train wreck, it would probably be more interesting than either of these artists individually.

July 12, 2020 on Lady A Explains Why Co-Existence With Country Band Will Not Work: “Lady Antebellum Has Erased Me From Every Platform”
Those have moments, but I think the London Years collectively are superior to all of those. You can take the best songs from those 4 albums, cut the huge amount of filler, and make one great record. Or maybe one decent double album. (I don't think this is a very controversial opinion.)

Opportunists all around here. Enough already. Lady A the band should just create a new name and rebuild. Let Lady A the person keep her name and continue her career with her tunes barely cracking 4 digits in streams. If neither of them has much future success, they can think about how this might have gone differently to benefit both sides.
