    TVOTR is a band that also took me a while to get into, but once I did I was hooked. My only problem with them is the lead singers vocals, not my fav, but the music more than makes up for that.

    Mhm, Ive seen them live once, it was uhhh 06 I think. I wasnt underwhelmed, only because maybe I didnt have many shows under my belt at the time. But their live show leaves much to the imagination, I get you JSam. But the albums fucking rule. amazing stuff

    tv on the radio has come out with some great music that is very catchy and some terrble music. I just cannot understand what anyone sees in them live.

    TVOTR is one of those bands that pisses me off so much. They have some fantastic songs (Wolf Like Me, Dry Drunk Emperor, Staring at the Sun), but the rest of their albums are filled with throwaways and mediocre tracks (new album withstanding, as I have not heard it yet). I feel like they have so much potential, but they can't put it together.
    For your health

    My biggest dissapointment at Street Scene this year, I will for sure give them another shot because I love most of their music. I also agree with them having made some terrible music, or not so much terrible, as it just doesn't go anywhere.

    Live, they are definitely rubbish.

    Maybe I'll never get over the poor shows I saw of both Interpol and TVOTR, I'm sure this plays a pretty heavy part as why "I just don't fucking get it" with either of these bands.

    There are TVOTR songs that I don't mind, though. I still haven't heard one Interpol song where I was like, "Okay, so this is why everyone raves about these guys."

    Red Dress, and Love Dog are two of my favs on the new album. Love Dog reminds me of Menomena for some reason.

    Joanna Newsom and Animal Collective are probably the two greatest things to happen to music this decade for myself.

    Ys is poetry. Pure fucking poetry.

    And the new animal collective comes in less than 10 weeks. I can't imagine it being as good as the last few albums, but I always think that....

    They don't jump around on stage very often, so the hypocrisy just isn't there.

    You have to listen to it over and over to get to that point though. I force myself to listen to things all the time, and after awhile, it either sticks or it doesn't.

    They're also a band most people have to see live before it really clicks for them. I wasn't a Primus fan until I saw them.

    TVOTR is just plain awful, especially live. But, another band who I wouldn't hate if the hype surrounding them wasn't totally ridiculous and unfounded.
    The difference is Interpol got big for sounding like Joy Division first, and Editors and She Wants Revenge jumped on the bandwagon by imitating Interpol's imitation (or in the case of SWR, Limp Bizkitizing it).

    She Wants Revenge's music can best be described by their album covers:

    Ha. They even have to imitate their own album cover, awesome. I'm glad there's somebody else who hears what I hear with those bands.

    From a classic rock standpoint, now... So I understand he's an amazing guitar player, but I can't listen to one Eric Clapton song the whole way through without pulling out my hair.

    I didn't really get TVOTR until the new album. I mean, I could recognize there was something there in the older stuff, I just wasn't really feeling it. Never really grew on me. But Dear Science? Wow.

    Anyway, the list...
    The Rapture
    Hot Chip
    Xiu Xiu
    Joanna Newsom (trying to sing like Lisa Simpson being sodomized with a pineapple is very obnoxious)
    Animal Collective (every time a new album comes out I kind of like it, then I find myself not able to listen to more than a few minutes at a time once the novelty wears off...the opposite of a grower, I guess. "Peacebone" is badass, though, but the pretentious fucks won't play it)
    Jens Lekman
    Godspeed You! Obnoxious Punctuation
    Primus
    My Morning Jacket
    Kings of Leon
    Jane's Addiction
    everything from Oasis since 1995 except maybe one or two songs
    Vampire Weekend
    The Shins (don't dislike them, just don't care at all)
    Band of Horses (ditto)
    Arctic Monkeys
    the Moldy Peaches/Kimya Dawson (and did we need 20 of these songs in one movie?)
    Manu Chao
    Crap Your Pants Say Nah
    Bloc Party (well, I thought Silent Alarm was decent and that's it, but why is this band so big?)
    4/8 Summer Camp @ Echo, 4/11-13 Coachella, 4/17 SISU, Dum Dum Girls @ Roxy, 4/27 Ghost B.C. @ Fonda, 4/30 Mono @ Troubadour, 5/3 I Break Horses @ Bootleg Theater, 5/28-6/1 Primavera Sound, 6/4 Nisennenmondai @ Jazzhouse, 6/18-22 Sled Island

    Sounds funny.

    The only Russian group I can recall off the top of my head is the lesfauxs that covered The Smiths.
