Bearing my heart as much as my musical tastes, I attempted the impossible, and made a list of 30 essential emo songs from the ’90s and early 2000s. I’m not naive enough to think that I could please everyone with a genre/era as personal and divisive as this, but I had an absolute blast compiling, researching, and writing this for Stereogum. (Side note: I am more than willing to discuss the merits of my selections with anyone interested. Get @ me.)

After seminal hardcore/punk/emo/indie label Jade Tree tossed its entire discography onto Bandcamp earlier this month, I had the pleasure of working on a list with Ian Cohen of that expansive discography’s hidden gems. Our picks were posted on Pitchfork’s The Pitch blog, and then people who failed to read the headline or intro asked why we didn’t include any songs from Nothing Feels Good or Orange Rhyming Dictionary.

This was easily the quickest turnaround from when I received an album to when I published a review of the music (less than 24 hours), but I suppose that’s to be expected when you’re dealing with the release of a “lost” Aphex Twin record 20 years after it was recorded. Richard D. James’ 16-song Caustic Window LP is an important relic of electronic music history, but even more than that, it’s a record littered with undeniably classic tunes that we’re all lucky to have access to, decades later or not. Read my review for Stereogum here.

One of the two masterminds behind electronic experimentalists Matmos, Drew Daniel has written an entire album of classic black metal cover songs under his alias The Soft Pink Truth. This feature for XLR8R looks into the concepts and ideologies of traditional black metal, which Daniel confronts and perverts with both a sense of devotion and decisive feelings of repulsion, and explores what the producer set out to accomplish on his strange Why Do the Heathen Rage? LP for Thrill Jockey.
