    It is. Kind of in the vein of Fuck You, Penguin.

    I can't really listen to Man Man on record, except Poor Jackie. Still say they're amazing live though.

    yeah... there are still some really good moments in it though. i've never seen them in such a ridiculously controlled environment.

    i'm excited to see them this sunday (with black dice).

    Complete dismissal of everything reviewed? Check. Vague reverent references to bands or at least their back catalog? Check. Obsessing over popularity and who is overrated and fashion and other unrelated nonsense? Check.

    Sure, the author (or authors) here have at least some knowledge of music history and we can presume that they've liked music at some point... but that seems to be in the hazy past. And while some of their attacks may be warranted and some of the attacks may even be enough to make the TomAzs of the world chortle... they'ren't breaking any ground.

    They are what they attack. They have the same flaws as the artists and albums they lambaste.

    Oh, wait, there's a positive review there? I looked but couldn't find anything. I might could've spoke too soon.

    I really like this new Pitchfork feature, "5-10-15-20." They choose a musician, who talks about his/her favorite music at five-year intervals, starting at the age of five. The inaugural edition features Doves' frontman Jimi Goodwin.

    I have enjoyed them quite a bit live but not bought anything. Last I saw them all they had for sale was a 7".

    I did see that one of their positive paragraphs was about a release of theirs; I have not read that paragraph, though.

    You should check out a few of the other ones. They did one with Bradford Cox and one with Dan Deacon and about 5 or 6 more and they were all really interesting, if not surprising at all.

    I randomly clicked on an Animal Collective review awhile back from that site. It was silly.

    This Matmos album from last year is pretty terrible. Stick to samples.

    But it's an idiot heart!

    A very long, very shit day's work when I should have been studying for the very important exam I'm almost certain to fail but after yelling at Spencer Krug for a few minutes I don't care. Although, I like the guy an awful lot for a man who's singing voice makes me want to stuff rocks into my ears.

    Music's awesome.

    In other news, in the last few days I have heard bad/ weird covers of both Keane and Ash in Tesco and McDonalds respectively. I can't believe such big corporations wouldn't even stretch to Ash and Keane.

    Why, it's almost good enough to have a "Let's prepare our plan!" montage.

    Not only is it good enough, it's better. It could be tightened up in some spots, but I love it. I could do without the sax I suppose.

    Aye, but the Sax Solo has been the ruin of many a great song.

    i've recently discovered how fucking awesome Ben Folds is

    For the longest time I had "the Unauthorized biography of Reinhold Messner" and loved it....but listening to his the Five's whole back catalog and Folds' solo stuff really puts into perspective what a great songwriter the guy is

    And completely unrelated, re-listened to "Introduce Yourself" and "Angel Dust" for the first time in a long while and holy crap those are both great records

    You really think it's better??!? We must have very different ideas of what's good then, I guess.
    10/01 - King Crimson - Orpheum
    10/10 - Thurston Moore/Sebadoh - Echoplex (?)
    10/11 - BADBADNOTGOOD - Echoplex (?)

    10/13 - Oren Ambarchi - Jewels Catch One

    I am not implying it is better than the original. A comment was made stating that is was almost good enough to be used as montage music, and I think it surpasses montage music although the thought of Radiohead filming themselves doing something cheesy and 80s inspired for that remix is blowing my mind right now.
