SHUT UP, DUDE

A long Labor Day weekend is upon us! Which means this weekend we have some extra time to reflect upon the week that was. And by “reflect on the week that was,” of course, I mean only that we will have extra time to relive all of the great and horrible conversations we had in the comments over this past few days. You know, the important stuff. Let’s get to it:

Yeah, fucking TV on the Radio, a bunch of Beach House wannabes. And don’t get me started on The Airborne Toxic Event, or as I call them, Bon Iver.

Corban, I think you’re missing something here. I think we’re all missing something here. Maybe we need to accept the possibility of a record so excellent we don’t understand it yet.

(My apologies. I can’t let Stereogum live that line down just yet.)

Any time I see the word “hipster” used as baseless derision, it makes me want to write a thesis paper on how the word doesn’t mean anything anymore and how it’s just a catch-all for something you don’t like.

Seasame Street is hipster.

Was their criteria ‘good bands that are popular amongst people who like music’? Because that seems to work for most bands on the list.

Are they just upset that no one cares about Incubus and 311 anymore?

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 miguelito1 | Aug 24th Score:-13

The list is pretty damn right on. I love when critics murder Bon Iver, they suck so hard. Except Arcade Fire – Neon Bible was seriously overrated, but The Suburbs is legit incredible. Even the ones I like like Sleigh Bells, I can’t argue with their point that the 2nd album was a big letdown.

Pointless, negative, childish. I’m going to add Corban Goble to my 20 most needy music journalists list.

Jordy Kasko | Aug 24th Score:-28

Nate’s actually one of the nicest singers you’ll ever meet. Talked to him after a show in Boulder a few years back that only about 100 people attended… back when no one knew who they were. He’s also big on gay rights. So… you know, go to hell or something.

Kinda like…you

Justin Stein | Aug 24th Score:-68

I actually think they are kind of right on. Aside from Ariel Pink and MGMT. I would say that the other 18 bands range from absolutely awful (Bon Iver) to Ok (Grizzly Bear). I’m kind of with them on this. The less Tuneyards and Sleigh Bells the better.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR’S CHOICE (AMRIT)

  lintmonster | Aug 30th Score:-1

You are all just pretending to like this so everyone will think you are cool right? These fucking assholes called Swan sound like they are just banging on random instruments going “aish!” over and over. What garbage, album of the year my poopy butt!

  8. Hey guys
    hey guys guys
    why did no one point out ever in history that Yo La Tengo has a new album coming out in January
    or did I miss something
    I demand an explanation

    • We’re too busy listening to all the incredible offerings released in the past month. HOWEVER, thanks for mentioning. New Yo La Tengo is indeed newsworthy.
