Stereogum’s Top 10 Breakout Artists of 2011

Stereogum’s Top 10 Breakout Artists of 2011

Yes yes, it’s clearly “list’s” season, thus, a top something-something of 2011 passes for “News”. Everyone has their top whatever of 2011 going (prematurely, in my opinion) and unlike the awards you see on TV where “breakout artist” means, artist that old white people finally heard about in 2011, Stereogum...

Freeball Friday! Major Rager

Freeball Friday! Major Rager

Major Lazer – “Original Don” I guess I’ll call this a choreographed, bladed-weapon, international ghetto-tech homage to Napoleon Dynamite. Not sure how much I’m in love with a random dude yelling “bomboclat” – but Diplo in a yellow knitted collared shirt buttoned to the top more than makes up for...
