Find Me On:
I really like this song but this video sucks. I feel like i’m watching a well-filmed version of some kid sitting in math class and drawing his bands name all over his notebook.
I didnt realize it was a 2010 release but yeah Ive enjoyed the hell out of it. I actually didnt listen to spoon before 2010 if you can believe thats possible.
Another shitty award show doesnt change the fact that i’ve listened to a ton of good music this year. I would be embarrassed to be in the same category with any of those other douches though. The funny thing is that the suburbs pretty much mocks 3/4 of the other artists.
They should have played revival. Its definitely the most accessible on the album, but I guess they had to keep it weird. Desire lines would have gone over well too though, thats my second fav.
Heres my list for the year:
1. Nirvana – Nevermind
2. Nirvana – Nevermind
Some of these bands I havnt given a listen because of their name (these new puritans), but I’ll check em out at least which is what these lists are SUPPOSED to do. I’ve enjoyed though:
The soft pack
wavves?(was that 09? i’m not going to google it right now)
cymbals eat guitars
I usually spend most of my time trying to play catch up and I have a hard time enjoying electronic music so that eliminates probably half of these bands.
What about song of the year though? what would you guys pick?….
Definitely “The Suburbs – Arcade Fire” for me
The only bad thing about this video is that it doesnt automatically play “ready to start” when the song is finished lol. This is my favorite song on the whole album though. I’m not going to begin and try and explain what its supposed to represent but I took something from it just like everyone else did; same goes for any other song as well, its all personal.
I’m not a ryan adams fan by any means, but this is a good song.
I’ll take whatever strokes i can get these days….
Julian’s leather outfits seem to be getting pretty obnoxious these days though.
Drum and bass!! All of my favorite noises are there. This is cool but how can they top this?:
Did you really just post that?
In other news the song sucks really bad. The only legit christmas song is John Lennon’s christmas song, everything else is just apparent for the cheese that it is.
I’ve been seing alot of people quoting this interview on dif websites and saying that Kanye said he was sorry which isnt the case and I dont think he should necessarily be. Sure the race card aspect of it was obviously ignorant and watching the video again in retrospect he obviously didnt put too much thought into it. You can tell though that he didnt want matt to twist around his reasons for coming on to talk about it into something like he was sorry for the entire thing. Which from what I got out of this is that hes sorry that the race card was thrown in there but he doesnt regret the entire thing or calling bush out. Also props to kanye for calling matt out on playing those ridiculous videos while hes speaking just to get a reaction, what a douche.
I’m sure matt lauer has a big mirror at home that he spends alot of time in front of reciting motivational rhetoric. For some reason I’ve always thought his receeding hair comes off as smug…
I mean its good, but some people have such a good voice that they could sing just about anything and it would sound pretty cool. The song is obviously not very creative but I enjoy listening to them play it. On another note though, the name sucks and it will until they have a great song as is the case with all bands. I’ll be sure and dl this when it comes out
is not! *clasps hands over ears*
ha I like to pretend that he walks around with that face all the time
I mean I dont see why he gave those girls such a hard time, everyone who is anyone knows that I’m the hippest hip to ever hip. Shit Rollins, do your research.
I’m kind of embarrassed for them, the DJ was horrible and everything else was just sloppy. Good record though…
I’ll translate for those among us who arnt fluent in espanol.
“Greetings! (crow cheers)
“My name is Mucho!” (crow cheers)
“Your mines are not up to code!” (crowd cheers)
“Your president is going to milk this for all the PR he can!” (crow cheers)
“I volunteered to assist with the rescue, but I cannot fit down the shaft!”
I’m like 4 songs in and everything is sounding alright. This isnt the type of stuff that I’m going to listen to all the time but I mean for radio type music its not bad. I never had too much hopes for this band to begin with or cared where they headed musically. Based on their older stuff they were a band that I would have paid to go see if they were head lining, but where their at now itd would just be a coincidence if I saw them live.
Their not gonna to a “return to roots” record until after they have all been in rehab 4 or 5 times and have a couple of kids and then at that point its just gonna be bad.
I cant say anyone else here wouldnt mind to be making decent music and a shit ton of money, I dont think their going to change anytime soon.
Its kind of funny now though because even when they play their old stuff in concert it still comes off kind of cheesy when they throw in all their delay/reverb guitars to make it more stadium rock sounding. Watching them try and be heard by playing alot harder was alot more entertaining then watching the fat one play one string w/ infinite sustain throughout an entire song.
On a lighter note, they sure didnt seem like any sort of an embarrassment when I saw them the other night at their ACL aftershow.
Instant Karma!! Best john lennon yelling song second only to twist and shout…
She confirmed its her apparently…
WTF is an ultrabeat and how did that happen.
Their all funny in their own pathetic way of course but wow.
songs dont seem to be as solid as their previous stuff but their good none-the-less. Great live band though, no doubt about that.
Good band, shouldnt the bass player be in the middle though?… Anyone?
It almost seems like their making fun of them, did anyone else pick up on that? Regardless angels rule, you can stream the entire album off of their myspace. I’m not so much into the obvious throwback songs like this one but i’m glad their moving towards making more straight forward songs just because im curious what will come out of it.
