I wouldn't be surprised if tQ doesn't join in w/ a eod list.

Also, it is my very unscientific opinion that the percentage of "boring wibbly ambient-experimental bollocks" has gone down steadily over the last years?

Lovely to see Bad Debt get a mention, albeit it's the very essence of a minor record, swamped by the very notion of what's around it and the notion of a decade list of this size.

agreed ^ that is a VERY strange record on that list

I think that's a pretty good list in terms of not trying to make critical judgments but just presenting the songs that made a big splash.

Yeah, I like that BB list — it’s a nice mix of personal faves (including unexpectedly recent tracks like Rosalía’s “Malamente”); stuff that’s not my bag but was “important”; and then a few LOL / 🤔 picks like Rebecca Black / “Friday” and Weezer / “Africa.”

New Car Smell (morrisp), Sunday, 8 December 2019 02:27 (eight months ago) link

Like, including “Let It Go” and “My Shot” (among some of those other picks) seems genuinely smart.

New Car Smell (morrisp), Sunday, 8 December 2019 02:33 (eight months ago) link

I think it's very weird of that Billboard list to include The Weeknd and NOT have the song be "Can't Feel My Face"

I guess this is the best place to ask, so when does our EOY poll nomination thread go up?

the intro to that fact list is making me insane ... sanctimony ahoy

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Tuesday, 17 December 2019 04:13 (seven months ago) link

if you're gonna have a list like that you shouldnt be ranking fucking pop smoke & 2019 thug songs ... i feel like the audacity of that demands u pick records that show a deeper reading of genre than this tepid poptimism

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Tuesday, 17 December 2019 04:16 (seven months ago) link

Sorry that one belonged in the eoy thread not the eod one.

they chose the wrong 2019 thug song anyway

I like how many of the lists challenge the idea of eoy lists

attn emo goons

Simon H., Wednesday, 18 December 2019 17:22 (seven months ago) link

lots of good records presented in a mostly baffling order

Simon H., Wednesday, 18 December 2019 17:24 (seven months ago) link

weird to see a publication fucking with white lung after their singer went full alt-right. they weren't *that* good

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 18 December 2019 17:32 (seven months ago) link

wait what

Simon H., Wednesday, 18 December 2019 17:33 (seven months ago) link

the white lung trajectory from "good punk band" to "alt-right shill in charge of penthouse, which is now also alt-right" was, from a 2012 vantage point, unexpected!

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 18 December 2019 17:34 (seven months ago) link

that's a yikes from me fam

but I mean even putting that aside their placements are way too high imo

Simon H., Wednesday, 18 December 2019 17:37 (seven months ago) link

Wait, Penthouse is now alt-right???

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Wednesday, 18 December 2019 20:18 (seven months ago) link

despite the conor oberst association i really wouldnt have considered phoebe bridgers 'emo' so surprising to see her on that list

ufo, Wednesday, 18 December 2019 23:13 (seven months ago) link

a lot of what gets counted as part of the emo umbrella is about association tbh

Simon H., Wednesday, 18 December 2019 23:22 (seven months ago) link

Was Elliott Smith emo? If so, what is different about phoebe bridgers which makes her not emo?

Peaceful Warrior I Poser (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 18 December 2019 23:45 (seven months ago) link

really liked that tinymixtapes list

Wait, Penthouse is now alt-right???

it was until they ran out of money. now it’s back to just naked pics

they published toby fuckin young. like... when you do that your pub deserves to die

That article doesn’t seem particularly damning(?)

Nobody uses the phone anymore (morrisp), Friday, 20 December 2019 04:34 (seven months ago) link

dang I didn’t know anything about the White Lung singer besides the music. I think I may have seen them live a few years ago.

oncle rasélonguebite (crüt), Friday, 20 December 2019 04:50 (seven months ago) link

this article maybe focuses a little too much on some dumb twitter beef penthouse started but does detail its rightward shift under barber-way (though it doesn't explicitly attribute it to her, she's been in charge since 2017)

there's some pretty damning stuff in that twitter thread too (publishing noted white nationalist mike cernovich is probably the worst)

Just going through some year-by-year lists and one thing I've not seen much mention of is Dysnomia by Dawn of Midi. Great record.

Life is a meaningless nightmare of string (Chinaski), Tuesday, 31 December 2019 12:22 (seven months ago) link

^^^ I'm putting together a "best jazz of the 2010s" piece and had to think really hard about whether to include that record or not. It's fantastic, but ultimately I had to cut it to make space for things that had broader cultural resonance.

shared unit of analysis (unperson), Tuesday, 31 December 2019 14:57 (seven months ago) link

Don’t do that. Fuck “cultural resonance”, just list the best albums.

Mr. Snrub, Tuesday, 31 December 2019 15:14 (seven months ago) link

song #45,987 that will end up on 0 best of 2010s lists

Lactose Shaolin Wanker (Raymond Cummings), Tuesday, 31 December 2019 17:54 (seven months ago) link

that Dawn of MIDI record is great and I've heard very little like it

some of the writing in the Tiny Mix Tapes list was excellent

The aforementioned Stereogum "best jazz albums of the 2010s" list is up now:

Argue away.

one month passes...

There needs to be more “Worst Songs/Albums of the 2010s” lists.
