Just used [intermission] to go get a cup of coffee.
I'm loving the new Chvrches, too. Psyched to see them in Portland.
Only one listen to the Dead Weather, it's good, but I need to spend some more time.
Haven't got to Metric, yet.
bmack, I have to say artist and genre matter. As mainly a lurker, Wolfbeckett's comment feels like an abberation. i'm sure there are plenty of examples to the contrary, but this board has/is...
Last four recommendations in order of like:
2. Carter Tutti
3. Joanna Newsom
Sexwitch is ok, terrible name though.
Found High Star - Celestial Voices by Carter Tutti on Spotify. It's nice, but I probably wont' put it on again.
I don't like Joanna Newsom. I tried Horrendous, too metal for me.
Incredible show last night. I liked the slow open with To Old Friends and New. The set was strong until A Pot In Which to Piss's "And I feel like swinging", and then it exploded. New stuff was great...
I'm going tomorrow, too. See you there.
Misterwives, Banks, The Paper Kites, Lorde, The 1975, The Mowgli's, Shovels & Rope, RAC, and Jenny Lewis.
Not really sure how Jenny Lewis is being discovered in 2014.
Thanks. I've still kept to one page. I'm not trying to pulling anything over on anyone, just save lines. I'll have to figure out how to show without taking too much space. Would something like the...
Hi ThatGirl, I'm updating my resume and am wondering how to handle or not multiple positions at a previous employer. I advance from Intern to Research Analyst to Industry Analyst to Senior Analyst. I...
It's The National, guys. I'm hoping they will still squeeze an album into 2015.
I enjoy Chvrches and am looking forward to this release.
I hadn't heard about Beck. Beck with some other decent acts could be a really good day, especially with his new single.
So is the long wait to announce Sunday Summer Ends line up a good sign or a bad sign?
I usually try to think of the album as the album no matter what was already released. But it can detract from the album experience if I've already been wearing out 5+ of the best songs before it even...
Is an album less good if it's best songs are on pre-release EPs or singles? Or should the album be thought of as its own whole, whether or not strong material was released ahead of the album?
1. Titus Andronicus
4. Father John Misty
5. Courtney Barnett
9. Natalie Prass
10. Tame Impala
travelfan, I'd get my band adjusted or get a new ring if I were you. I'd never worn a ring before getting married and didn't really know how they were supposed to fit. It really shouldn't be able to...
Jenny Lewis was second to last on the Outdoor back in 2009. She could end up almost anywhere.
Summer's end has acts split out for Friday and Saturday:
Friday w/ Jimmy Eat World, Thrice, Spoon, Manchester Orchestra, Kevin Devin
Saturday w/ J.Cole, Slightly Stoopid, Big Sean, Rebelution,...
I saw full sets from Smallpools and Best Coast and parts of Sir Sly, Andrew Jackson Jihad, and Jim Adkins. Cityscape and Monroe stages were running way behind pretty early in the night, which made it...
Ryan Adams is the best thing on the whole poster.
They were doing an hour fifteen/an hour and a half sets for top acts last year. Not much less than a headline show. If JEW and Spoon are on the same day, I'll show up.
I just put down everybody I was interested in on first pass. The Twin Shadow/Coolio/Jim Adkins overlap is rough, but expected.
5-7 Brian Chartrand
7:30 Sir Sly
8 Andrew Jackson Jihad
It says last day for $18. What does it go up to? $25? Can this sell out or is it just capacity at venues?
It's just a down year in music. I've got tickets to see The War of Drugs. I like Lost in the Dream, but when that is the most critically acclaimed album of the year, the following year's line up is...
a lot of rap acts go to celebrity
My wife won a trip to Champagne and Burgundy, France. Wine tours and such, we're thinking of tacking on a couple of days. We can only do a couple and want to maximize our time. We're considering...
Any line up with Billy Joel is worse. Fuck Billy Joel.
I started going in 2007. The lineups had more and more for me through 2011, my favorite year. Since then it has had less and less each year. I don't think there is some over-arching trend, it's just...
Great writing, SoulDischarge.
This. On so many lists, yet so so boring.
Banks's Goddess was my album of the year, but I don't think I've seen her on a year end list yet. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart's album was really great, too, but has only got a few nods.
My buddy was joking Spoon is overtaking Wilco as lead dad rock band. I don't mind. It was a great crowd.
Spoon was fantastic.
No, sorry. 2% isn't terrible without a promotion. Though I'd hope for 3 or 4% with a glowing review
Talked to my boss and that's the way to look at it. Compensation is about where it should be and I'm happy. It really only could even possibly be a problem years down the road. Off to celebrate with...
Thanks everyone. It's a small company, so no posted pay ranges. From Internet salary research, I'm about where I would expect. So I'm not sweating it too hard. I wouldn't say I'm overpaid, but I...
Billy's right, but he's an arrogant prick for saying so.
So my boss told me my promotion today, I got a 10% raise, but my new title is two above where I was. I'm happy with and expect a 10% raise with a promotion, but with two title increases am I losing...
Why are there both Vance Joy and Foy Vance? One or the other, Music Industry.
Good singles, but the new album isn't going to rocket them to mainstream popularity.
And you only like two out of three headliners in your own wishlist?
I am glad that rock has become more niche oriented. There are so many more bands for me to like. And it is easier to see them close up live.
I won tickets to Sunday on the specblog.com. I'm still trying to decide if it's worth going even for free. Violent Femmes would be cool, but saw them at Coachella. Maybe Kongos and I'm sorta of...
I was just thinking I should put Celebration Rock on.
Slip and Slide - Samuel L Cool J
Jealous (I Ain't With It) - Chromeo
Miserable - Tokyo Police Club
Simple and Sure - The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
Lazaretto - Jack White
And probably Ain't...
Neighborhood Creep, do you like Romantica? They're one of my favorites from your neck of the woods. I think their singer Ben Kyle is doing it solo now.
