It took us about a year from first making the beat until actually pressing finish and sending it off to master, which is maybe the longest time we’ve ever spent making a song. Some songs, like “Magnets,” for instance, we wrote with two weeks left before our deadline of actually delivering the album. That one we wrote and mixed in a couple of days, just on my laptop while on tour. But it was quick because we knew the song was great and didn’t need any rewrites. “Echoes” was just a bitch to finish. … [Read more...] about The Toughest Song We Wrote: Disclosure on the Year They Spent Getting ‘Echoes’ Just Right

A few thousand lucky people received a welcome pick-me-up in their inboxes on September 9: a download code for Save Stereogum: An ’00s Covers Comp, a perk for donating to Stereogum’s recent wildly successful Indiegogo campaign. Stereogum editor-in-chief Scott Lapatine, who started Stereogum in 2002 and bought it back from the Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group last year, put together the compilation exclusively for the campaign, meaning it will never hit streaming or be reissued. The comp — along with other perks including T-shirts, a Zoom party with performances, and a personal edition of Tom Breihan’s Stereogum column “The Number Ones” — helped raise over $370,000 for the site, well past the $250,000 goal, which will help Lapatine relaunch the site. … [Read more...] about How Stereogum Made the Best Covers Compilation of the Year
Do you see your own market research?Sheezus. That’s why I had a breakdown. I can’t talk about myself as a product. It makes me feel ill. If it had been my intention to have massive commercial success, I wouldn’t have signed a five-album deal for £25,000. I wanna make good shit and have enough money to support my kids. I don’t live in a castle. I don’t have a driver. Just ‘cause I’m in the Daily Mail all the time doesn’t mean I’m a multibillionaire. … [Read more...] about Lily Allen Won’t Be Shamed
