Re: EOY 2019 - Rough Trade (US/UK)

Listening to Kim Gordon's No Home Record right now and very much enjoying it, likely a top 20 of the year for me, when it strikes me that the title sounds very similar to the phrase "no homewrecker". Considering this comes a few years out from Gordon's marriage to Sonic Youth bandmate Thurston Moore...

Re: Consequence of Sound (US) : Top 100 Best Songs of the 2010s

List was alright overall, but the fact that they put "All the Stars" in the top 50 and then openly admit that it's not because the song is good but because it was in Black Panther is one of the most egregious examples of critics not caring about music so much as cultural commentary.
