The Grammys don’t matter. It’s important that we all agree to that, here at the beginning. It’s important because, historically speaking, Grammy wins have been used as ammunition in arguments about musical artists’ accomplishments, especially in comparison to other artists. Perhaps this made sense in the past, perhaps it didn’t. I mean, Roger Miller won…

In his excellent book Killing Yourself to Live, the writer Chuck Klosterman argues that “every straight man born after the year 1958 has at least one transitory period in his life when he believes Led Zeppelin is the only good band that ever existed.” I’m not sure how well this generalization holds up in the wider sense,…

Fox News commentator Katherine Tempf caused sad white weirdos everywhere to stub out their morning’s fifth cigarette in exasperation when word got out that, on something called The Greg Gutfeld Show, she had claimed that Radiohead would get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame even though their music was “elaborate moaning and whining…

It took me longer than many people my age (I’m 32 going on 70), but last year, I finally signed up for a premium music streaming service. The sensation of using said service as a primary method for listening to and discovering new music is probably a lot like what someone who grew up during…

Word came over Father’s Day weekend that Jay-Z was set to release his next album, 4:44, at month’s end. Maybe he wanted to wait until his and Beyoncé’s twins were born before immediately stealing the spotlight for himself, maybe his album’s entry into the world was going to happen no matter when his children’s occurred.…

Just a few days ago, I was mindlessly scrolling through Facebook when I came across a picture posted by a friend of mine. The photo was of an empty stage, and the location was marked as Cincinnati, Ohio. She was obviously waiting for a show to start. The next two words I saw made my…

Hearing a great debut album is among the most purely enjoyable experiences a music fan can have. That feeling of discovery and the novelty of realizing how much you’re enjoying something unexpected while you’re enjoying it is about as good as it gets. But even better than that is the realization that you and the…

Recently, I’ve been listening to a (very funny) podcast called Craig’s List, wherein the host, comedian Craig Cackowski, and his wife Carla watch one of Craig’s 100 favorite movies and then discuss it. Their tastes are fairly divergent, and since they’re both seasoned improv comics, they’re able to milk the conflict for all it’s worth.…

Kendrick Lamar is a musical artist who, when he releases a new record, stops my musical world from spinning.
