Yes. Yes it is.
Lulz aplenty on pitchfork today. Between that story and the Morrissey hitman one, assholes rule the day.
Edit: And yes, I know that the Morrissey story could very well be a baseless allegation,...
I heard it's going to be released in Braille this time.
I at least was hoping for an act of arson or something on the way out.
"Pour Cyril" on How To Dress Well's new one is a really striking moment on an album with plenty of them. It's quite pleasant when the clipped distortion similar to that of Love Remains flows over...
The Knife-Shaken Up Versions
How to Dress Well-What Is This Heart
Note: Has It Leaked has this one...
If anything, this thread has served the purpose of reminding me about Matt At the Movies and prostitute guy, and that is a job well done.
I'm pretty sure that Craig is actually the ghost of Theodor Adorno.
I agree with this sentiment. It's a bit of shame then that Nikki Nack is actually so offputting for me. I'm not really sure what is going on with is one. I don't really dislike it entirely, but...
It's because they're a cult. My friends and I wanted to watch a song for kicks (we were far back) and left shortly after hearing a girl behind us say, peppered with clear crying, "I just need to see...
I only just got to Doors of Pharos, but I have a handful of Ascetics in my pocket, possibly for this purpose. In my heart, I know I'll return to Sunbros after the Darkwalker covenant quests. ...
I may be late to the party on this, but being in the Rat Bastard covenant in Dark Souls 2 is the most sadistically satisfying thing ever. I stand as a Sunbro corrupted.
I remember an older (mid-50's?) Australian guy during the 2007 set saying to me "I like them a lot. Reminds me of U2.", to which my undeveloped 19-year old hipster mind scoffed. Cut to 2014 and Win...
The Suburbs is where they may have crossed the line into over-earnestness, which is saying a lot, however I don't truly dislike the album. The thing about the 2007 set is that it was, in my memory,...
I think every band next year, from 11:00 AM slots to headliners, should bring out fake Daft Punks and completely saturate the hype market. Then, it might, just might, finally be over.
My main problem with Lana Del Rey, and it's a big one, is that she tries WAY too hard. It's one thing to full every line with as many "subversive" clichés as possible, it's a step further to pepper...
When in doubt, fist.
Hey guys! BARACK OBAMA came out onstage with Arcade Fire! I SAW HIM.
Beyond the fact that it wasn't them, that people have reached the point where they brag about seeing Daft Punk play 30 seconds of a slowed down recording of "Get Lucky" makes me feel that they've...
Oh this is lulzy.
The Phantom Bump
1. Arcade Fire
2. The Pixies (Yes, the new songs were less than ideal, but otherwise it was about as great as I could have hoped.
3. The Knife (I know it was mostly faked. I also know that I...
Neutral Milk Hotel was indeed really good, as expected. The Lana crowd bleeding into it was a bit irritating, but they were largely fine from where I was standing. There was a moment, though, where...
He also, from what I could see, essentially paced around onstage as if he were trapped there for the majority of his part. Visible detachment does not make for a compelling performance, generally...
Janelle Monae was a delight at the very least.
Yeah, this is really fun.
I'm currently hanging out in the crowd and waiting for them to start. I'm aware of the possibility of it being boring, however I'm interested in the visual aspect of all of it, playback tracks or...
Reading "Electro-Swing" made me have harrowing flashbacks of Lou Bega.
Swans-To Be Kind
Skrillex's "Doompy Poomp" brought the wtf lulz to an otherwise boring commute.
The Todd Terje album is on point, as predicted. It sounds a bit like what lindstrom was attempting to do with Six Cups of Rebel, however much more coherent and enjoyable, at least for me. A lot of...
A definite boon today with Real Estate and War on Drugs. Thanks for the grouping. (Im)patiently waiting and keeping watch for Todd Terje.
Group of Trust would be awesome.
It's pretty fucking good. It sounds so far like she's bringing in the type of impressionistic R&b style Blood Orange and Solange have been championing and placing it over trap beats. Immediately...
Seriously. While I never was in the group that were dissatisfied by Burial sticking to a single sound (something that I never really felt he was doing anyway), had I assumed that a shift in the...
New Death Grips is definitely some panic attack soundtrack shit.
Lana Del Rey appearing as a headliner on 2014's poster would straight up make me cackle.
We're still in the baroque era over in Los Altos. Shame that something like the internet doesn't exist to help us out.
Chromatics fucking killed it today. In fact, all of the acts I was able to see killed it (Zola Jesus, Chromatics, Animal Collective, Nine Inch Nails, Godspeed). Very pleased with this festival.
Darkside's album gets a 9.0. I'm cool with that.
Loving the new Danny Brown album. The production is fantastic throughout, and it's home to some truly fascinating beats. The "club rap on speed" stuff from the second half of the album gets...
Clash Music coming in and pooping on the party with their review.
Bangerz: The Derpface Edition
Danny Brown - Old
Edit: Quality is pretty bad as it turns out.
So, Drake's pretty much killing it on this one.
Waiting for someone to photoshop "Where are they now?" next to their name in the upper left hand corner.
Grouped. Stream rip, though.
