Hello fellow once-a-year-birthday-havers and welcome to a post that will answer how old people on this website are (or at least those that willingly posted their ages on a sputnik list). So, I surveyed you all to give me more ideas for Statnik, and many of you suggested things I had already done. No worries, […]

Hello, fellow numbers in a weighted average, and welcome to an investigation of how much weight this site really has.

Specifically, […]


So, with the blessing of those who will not be named though know who they are, our lovely expose on the users of Sputnikmusic shall make a bi-weekly return to no remarkable avail; with little haste on my end, the first of the revived series ended in a crossfire of three reviews that all took […]


It doesn’t happen nearly often enough. That moment when you first hear a song, and you can’t fight the beginning of a smile.  Uplifting music has sort of become a lost art, at least to me.  I’m always searching for the next earth-shattering revelation, as if a song is going to help me understand the […]

TalonsOfFire here – This is the second of a series of staff on staff interviews. Arcade and I decided to keep things conversational, but in the interest of clarity, my posts are bold. Enjoy! I’m glad to finally see someone else enjoyed the new LCD Soundsystem as much as I did. Why do you think […]


Greetings fellow Sputnik users, The first month of 2018 proved to be a little slow for under-the-radar releases, as it typically is for any music in general.  When We Land’s Introvert’s Plight was a pleasant surprise, offering up a very consistent indie-rock record that contained moments of lush folk amidst more sprightly, upbeat melodies.  I initially gave […]


By 1975 in New York City, the first wave of punk had floated to the top of the underground, seeping into pop culture and making small doomed stars of its first insurgents. CBGB in the East Village had become a bastion of young iconoclasts re-shaping rock music into something decidedly more septic. Both the New […]

“Bit of a dark spiral with no end, I thought” – Algeria Touchshriek   For brevity’s sake, I’ll leave my thoughts on the first three decades of Bowie for another time, except to say that his 70s output is among the greatest run of any artist in history and his 80s output is… not. Even […]


To be fair to CHVRCHES, I’m not entirely sure what progression for them sounds like. Does it sound like some backwards adoption of analogue synths and sound collage as an experimental form? The alternative to that would be to go bigger, less subtle, and more infectious with their pop songs, and I don’t know if they’re […]


Hello voters, and welcome to a post about a long running music poll. The Pazz & Jop Poll is a year end Album of the Year list scored by votes tabulated from an assortment of elite music critics. In fact, the most elite music critic (outside of PSH’s character in Almost Famous, I guess), Robert Christgau, […]
