Emmitt Rhodes died, he cut 3 studio albums in the early 70s of baroque pop all by himself, when that thing wasn't really a thing yet. Kind of had a Nick Drake-esque following but his songs are much more a la Beach Boys, Beatles, etc. which brings me to the point he was pretty influential on a lot of the indie scene' singer-songwriters, e.g. Elliott Smith, Conor Oberst, stc. once he was re-discovered a bit. He cut another album and had one in the works before he died.

Here's his first album on YouTube. I think McCartney dubbed him a "one-man Beatle" if that's your thing. The production, especially for doing all his recording in his parent's house is surprisingly clean even amongst 70s standards.

I actually came here just now to discuss just this. Where are all the fun new rock bands these days? I know that rock as a genre isn't really being highlighted by the mainstream anymore these days, and the ones that are heralded by places like pitchfork and NPR are just kind of, sad sounding, despite how good they are.

Bringing this back (even though I've already replied to it) because it's still been on my mind for the past few days. I've been remembering that I've actually heard a lot of good examples of this type of stuff on college radio over the past few years. (WKNC 88.1 in Raleigh, specifically.) Some of it I literally only know one song, but I've held onto them so that I can dive deeper some day. Or some of them actually don't have much else out yet.

I don't think you were specifically saying girl-fronted bands, but most of these happen to be anyway.


Obsidian Darling - I actually can't find anything except this one song and then there's one other one they play on the same station, which is also good.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUBzM2aybbw

Stonefield - They're slightly retro in some way I can't really pinpoint, but pretty drat legit rock.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVIRsihUgAY

Case Sensitive - Super local and apparently on hiatus, but they do have one EP and it's good
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJp-Tw-DoPw

Guerrilla Toss - I think I'm super late to this party but they have lots of albums and so far they're a blast.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBw_ytWaRXg

TORRES - She's usually WAY more mellow than the very Grunge song linked below, but her vocals are always really intense and dangerous-sounding.

Really liked the album but it’s the first Taylor Swift album I have listed to so I’m not sure how her fan base will like the sound. I’m not sure if it’s always been like this but her voice sounds scarily like Lana on a few tracks.

How misleading it's "gently caress you forever".

Josh Kaufman from Muzz/Bonny Light Horseman is also on the record, I posted a few Muzz videos before that post, it's a group with Paul Banks from Interpol and Matt Barrick from The Wallkmen.

I think Taylor is thinking Lana might change direction given her recent comments, but she's already working again with Jack Antonoff and I foresee her next release being much like NFR! I think she has found a sweet spot with Jack, as Lust for Life was messy with a lot of last minute changes. It'd be nice to have another Born to Die-esque album but I don't think it'll ever happen. That album was a one-off and her Lizzy Grant roots have shown since Honeymoon, which fared better than Lust for Life in cohesiveness. It's obvious her personal life is still searching around the 60s with those who are still alive (Baez for example) and the kids of those who aren't (Sean Lennon and Adam Cohen) and being kind of boring and bougie. It surprises me that for all the 60s living she has never once brought up Bob Dylan.


The label didn't know what to do with Lana after Born to Die, that's why Paradise exists, as a time-buyer. Her unreleased catalog is one of the best in pop right now, up there with Kylie Minogue's. Lana at least has performed some of those unreleased tracks (Serial Killer, Us Against The World). I think she was really smart taking the outline of UV to Dan Auerbach to produce. The label hated it since it was so slow but by that point there was no more time to buy.

Speaking of Kylie, her country phase lasted only an album and she's back in with an album called Disco on Nov. 6, first single:

Lol I heard he lyric as “mouth gently caress you forever” when it’s “mouth, gently caress you forever” which I guess makes more sense.

Haha you got me excited since it's a pretty raunch lyric and then I listened to the context. I don't know if it's Scooter. Taylor on the outside feels like she holds more animosity toward Braun, and rightly so. Kanye made a spectacle and wouldn't let up, but Braun has her works. I think this whole album is a bit more freer given she owns her poo poo now and maybe feels like she doesn't have to cater to fans since ME! flopped so hard and was formulaic for her fans it seemed.

The only thing that could make it Kanye is the lyric "they say move on" which a lot of Kanye and Swift fans both had sentiments about the whole Snapchat/MTV awards thing as the animosity continued into this year.

I know you are joking about the war on women thing but I just looked and he has given 4 9s this year and three were to white women (Jessie Ware, Black Dresses and Laura Marling).

I watched his stream last Friday where he listened through the whole album and he really couldn’t get over how much she was sounding like Lana on a few tracks.

PF apparently got the full weight of angry Taylor Swift fans because Folklore got an 8.0, which is hilarious because

A: they put it with other reviews of female pop singers and tried to play it off as misogyny despite all of the reviewers mentioned were female
B: 8.0 is actually really good for PF, definitely in the top 20% albums on the year
C: it's not even their highest rated Swift album, they gave Red a 9.0 when they rereviewed her catalog last year

yeah this album is solid front to back, it's like a sister to that Robyn album from a few years ago but possibly better

edit: Fantano is continuing the "oh she just made a Lana album" bullshit, it's not a Lana Album it's a 2010 Pitchfork Album, if you would like to hear what Taylor sounds like when she makes a Lana Del Rey song, go listen to Wildest Dreams, which is a very good Taylor-doing-Lana Del Rey song on 1989

I can't remember if it got posted already but Stereogum is raising money after gaining their independence from their previous owners and they're doing so by having a crowdfunding campaign where the big get is a compilation of cover songs that various Stereogum-ready artists have agreed to give to them that won't be available anywhere else. A few more names joined today so it's over 50 songs for $20 while you support independent music journalism. The artists include:

Anna Calvi
Bedouine
Bethany Cosentino (from Best Coast)
Bill MacKay
Car Seat Headrest
Charly Bliss
Chris Farren
Clipping.
Colleen Green feat. Diarrhea Planet's Emmett Miller

Wild Pink
Wye Oak

I'd be willing to bet about 80% of the artists on this list have been mentioned in this thread before and they're pretty much all good. They haven't officially announced who's covering what but it's all songs from the first ten years of this god-forsaken millennium, there's a few clips in this video:

if you can only do one or the other, sure, support your venues, but it's not like Stereogum wasn't impacted by These Unprecedented Times. ad revenues across all media took an absolutely massive nosedive over the past few months, so their business model is completely hosed for now.

stereogum is the only music blog i've really kept up with over the past couple years. i kinda hope they can bring in some new talent and freshen it up a bit, but I threw $20 at them just to keep The Number Ones going if nothing else.
