Find Me On:
The terrible user interface, especially with the mobile app, and its inconsistency is what made me cancel my premium plan. I’ve read so many great things about Rdio’s apps that I’m very tempted to try them out.
I was pretty much in love with Spotify from the start. Signed up for Premium after a couple of weeks and had it… until last month.
At first, I simply focused on my love for the general service and decided to overlook the absolute crappiness of the apps. I thought, give it time, it will improve. Truth is it simply has not. And even if they’ve added some new things, it still falls flat on its face on the most basic functionality. It’s mind-boggling!
The desktop app has become insanely slow, while the mobile app started forgetting offline playlists then not scrobbling to last.fm. Last month I decided enough was enough.
I’m also worried about the low payout – 0.39 cents per stream. As mentioned in the article, if they could get more people to become paying customers, it would probably go up. And the most simple way to do that is to redesign the applications. As soon as they fix them, I’ll go back to my premium plan. I miss it terribly!
Keith Moon will be glad to join this one!
Only good thing I can say about this band is that lady has the nicest hair this side of Sarah from Phantogram.
Tell me your secret!
“I don’t know but white butler is really into it…”
That killed me.
What? No shout out to the Menomena sample?
Could it be that you and I have listened to the wrong songs?
I kind of dig it. Sounds a bit like The Phantom Band.
What about longer titles that contain the band name? Then I’d add:
Mogwai – Mogwai Fear Satan
Handsome Furs – Handsome Furs Hate This City
Both were on their debut after all.
Spin off version of Adele office crying skit BUT with people contemplating the beauty of this world while listening to Holocene in very inappropriate places.
Jay Pharoah does a Kanye impression with a rap based on his latest twitter rampage. JV does a guest verse.
JV improvs with Garth and Kat during Weekend Update.
Celebrity impressions montage for Valentine’s Day. JV does Willie Nelson!
So many possibilities!
WHO CARES what they’re going to play!
The REAL question is how can they use Justin Vernom in a skit?…. To the brainsquashing room!
I guess this means I should keep hope alive for a new I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness album.
“The World Is Full Of Possibilities” – Calvin & Hobbes
“…her debut album…”
Sorry to be the downer here, but I’m very disappointed. I didn’t find the remix that interesting other than the fact that DAVID F’ING LYNCH did it. If this came from any other no name remixer people wouldn’t bother.
Bloggers just love throwing Joy Division into everything. To me, this reminds me of Depeche Mode. Listen to that chorus!
The most glaring omission: SHARON VAN ETTEN.
I mean, there’s even a release date set. It’s not speculation.
Should read: Ryan Gosling (Dead Man’s Bones)
Don’t know about anyone else, but I still listen to them every once in a while.
Guys, it feels like I make this same comment every year BUT can you have a female significant other or friend pick the picture for the guys? The selection is always so dismal compared to the girls! If you need someone to volunteer their time for this task I am willing to sacrifice for the greater good.

Publicist Of The Year!
To put it in perspective, LCD Soundsystem never played SNL.
If you don’t take yourself too seriously, you’ll laugh out loud to his comment. That’s what I did!
“A thousand year old tree? Go fuck yourself! You’d have thought he’d have written a song about a modern tree or one that was planted last week. You know what I mean?” *LMAO*
Is this The Strokes take over week in Stereogum?
Oh, wait! There’s a post with Radiohead in the title under most commented. False alarm.
That’s exactly what I dislike about it. I think (hope!) this is a lost Humbug track.
Just wait till Creed fans forward this horrendous piece of blognalism to all of their AOL contacts. You will be sorry, very sorry. You’ll see!
Keyboard Cat, this is your legacy.
It’s been months since it stopped being just a catchy song. It became an audible meme.
I’d say Phantogram’s Eyelid Movvies – unforgivable omission! – and Autolux’s Transit Transit, probably overlooked because it was similar to their last, still pretty good album.
PS: Guys, don’t quit your day job for acting.
PSS: Thanks to Colbert for instructing me on why the Grammy suck so much: people are voting on things they know nothing about! Simply check the most familiar name. Why not let winners vote only on their category, in his case, comedy.
