    I think all of what I know of Fugazi is pre-96 (and that knowledge is not very deep, I'll admit). I know The Argument is respected but I don't think I've heard it yet.

    It's one of my favorite albums out there. The whole thing is great lyrically and musically. They should be totally up your alley throughout their whole catalog.

    Fugazi and TV on the Radio - two bands I've tried multiple times to get into but I just can't.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Great interview with Michael Gira. The man is steeped in music history.

    Pitchfork readers: guilty of sexism because we voted for artists without vaginas on an internet poll.

    The fact is, when it comes to the question of women and, um, art, the Top 40’s great unwashed—and even red state Tea Party partisans—are far more progressive and inclusive than the mountain-man-bearded, Fair Trade espresso-swilling, self-styled lefties of indiedom.

    I never got into them but this new line-up should be interesting....RIP Blood Brothers

    Cold Cave have a new line-up featuring London May (Samhain), Hunter Burgan (AFI), Dave Stone (LCD Soundsystem / Melvins), and Cody Votolato (Blood Brothers). The band will head into the studio in November to begin work on the new CC album.

    Especially for a review that basically just says it is more of the same music they love from the xx and one that makes a point that the reviewer likes the album and will continue to spin it for a while lol

    I understand not giving it a high 8-10 range since they are critiquing the album for not being groundbreaking but 7.5 is a bit low for that being the main issue if they still like the album.

    What's more surprising to me is that they gave Lil Wayne's new mixtape a 5.0 but Bloc Party's new album gets a 4.5...fuck that shit lol

    I thought he was insinuating that it was ridiculous that Bloc party could be considered nearly as good as Lil Wayne, but I was probably interpreting that wrong.

    You really hate the new BP album? I don't love it as much as the other 3 but it is much closer to the 6.3 range than a 4.5. 4.5 to me is below average/doesn't deserve to be heard.

    Giving Bloc Party a 4.5 for an honest effort at coming back and reuniting the band with an album that meant something to them each as individuals vs. a 5.0 for an album that Pitchfork is saying uses an unimaginative set of Young Money beats that were laying around + Wayne lazily rapping used up lines over just doesn't seem right.

    I do get your point that it is easy to knock Bloc Party however and maybe these aren't the best reviews to compare to each other.

    Admittedly, I went back and saw they gave the new Bloc Party a 4.9 which slightly negates my point lol

    That Ariel Pink article shows that dude is just as weird as the music he releases.
