Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Scott Lapatine / October 21, 2011

It’s CMJ! High five! One of the precious few weeks each year when indie rock publicists ease up on sending me 500 e-mails a day (#whitewhine). But while Stereogum put on two sold-out showcases in Williamsburg, the music news cycle rolled on. Kim & Thurston broke up. The Stone Roses made up. And we got our first listens to new LPs by Coldplay, Florence + The Machine, and Loutallica. (I’m gonna be Loutallica for Halloween, btw.) After the jump, as referenced by Titus Andronicus’ Patrick Stickles onstage at Glasslands Tuesday, the highest and lowest rated comments of the past seven days.

I think Owens’ original tweet hits the heart of the entire Lana Del Rey debate in that while she has put out a few okay pop songs, there are bands like GIRLS who’ve made two whole albums and an EP worth of quality material all on their own (on top of being a proven decent live act) that should take precedence of the music world’s attention. Life isn’t always fair to those who’ve earned it, though, and that’s what sucks.
