With Weezer and Grizzly Bear being called "hipster bands" (and in the same sentence) on Togetherness recently and a fight involving the sound of She & Him on Girls, is there a way to start a...
Y U NEVER WEST COAST
The songs I've heard from the Six Organs record are incredible...he's playing the Echo on Friday and just those 3 songs have sold me on the show.
I really like "Boyfriend", but aside from that YEP. I've tried, I really have. But every song sounds the same, it seems like Bethany even uses the same chords and chord progressions on every song...
New Godspeed album announced. Info in the 2015 releases thread.
FUCK YEAH MOTHERFUCKERS
Not a big deal, it's just become increasingly annoying when people speak as voices of authority when they haven't the slightest idea of what they're talking about. It's not just you.
Their Twitter just confirmed that the show is GA seated. Next time you're really excited for a show that's a 2+ hour drive away for you we'll make sure and provide you with baseless speculation to...
It was Boyhood's race to lose a month ago, but now Birdman seems the most likely if you go by the guild wins and past indicators regarding them. Sure, there could be a Crash-like upset, but it's not...
Everyone knows that. You said it was likely like you had reason to think that beyond that. I digress.
What makes you say that? This really seems like it'd be a seated show. Especially with the fact that he's doing two nights.
I don't think it's leaked yet. I saw P4k reviewed it, but I haven't seen it out there anywhere.
The artwork is pretty dumb, and even the concept (classic hip-hop vs. The Beatles) probably seems...
$30-34 is pricey for someone like him?
FUCK. That's the same night as Luna at the Echo. God damnit.
It may not have been to your liking, but I don't agree with this overall. The Duplass brothers' stuff can certainly be mood-specific - if you're not in that frame of mind it can be tedious without a...
Looks like social media might have played a part in saving his life:
I'm inclined to say that those who liked Angel Olsen's record from last year will dig Joanne Robertson's new one, Black Moon Days, even though they're quite different. But yeah, check this one out. ...
Today was the most insane day for show announcements in board history. Holy shit.
I imagine everything in the orchestra will be outrageous, the $45 tickets will be the upper balcony and will go very fast.
How has this not been posted?!?
As much as I hate the Palladium, I'm pretty happy with the bands they're getting so far this year. Sleater-Kinney and The Replacements aren't bands that need seats or crazy acoustics, and will work...
This was really good. Decker seems to be in complete control of what she's doing for someone in such an early stage of her career.
Also, Tsai Ming-liang's Stray Dogs is FINALLY on Netflix...
The hype/"event" status of it all has definitely outweighed the worth of the actual product, I agree. But no way is Elder better.
This, but holy fuck is AXS the absolute worst. I wasn't able to be in front of a computer, but had the AXS app on my phone all ready to go at noon. Pulled a ticket no problem, but when it got to...
I used to really love Incubus. Even through Light Grenades. But they've gone full "alt-rock", the production on this is terrible. Even Boyd's vocals are terribly mixed and this sounds like...
Toro y Moi went from that guy who sounded like everybody else to really carving out a solid sound for himself to that guy who sounds like everybody else again. Not real wild about the new record.
Zs' new album is fantastic. Much more rhythmic and less free jazz-y than the last few albums. Probably my favorite of this young year so far.
ThomThom and I tied one on yesterday during the game, and had some really spectacular stuff. The highlights were the Beachwood Melrose IPA, which is absolutely as good if not better than last year's...
You both can speculate all you want, just realize how presumptuous it is to assume you knew exactly what Belichick or anyone was intending unless they say something explicitly.
Toro y Moi - What For?
I can't believe Drive Like Jehu still hasn't sold out the Glass House. I was semi-expecting an instant sellout a la Refused in 2012. Shows what I know.
Patti Smith was absolutely sensational tonight. A show for the ages.
lol, whatever. When it takes a band *weeks* to sell out a venue, why add another show at the same venue? Odd. This will have about a million contests for it.
The new A Place to Bury Strangers record is much more all over the place than their past albums have been. Really post-punky at first, and overall there's much more melodic songwriting on the tracks...
The Title Fight leak is legit.
Zs - Xe has also leaked. And, that Mount Eerie's a transcode.
It was interesting looking back at old year-end lists, these are nearly all the top 5 from those years but in different order. Definitely some albums that since their respective years have gone up...
1. Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Before Today (2010)
2. D'Angelo - Black Messiah (2014)
3. The Besnard Lakes - The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night (2010)
4. Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest...
Heck yeah IK...this will be fun.
The Long Goodbye is something that should be talked about much more often than it is, both on here and in general. What a fucking film.
I'm not even sure I can say this is true with this album decisively, but it's starting to look like that. An...
