And the version he did with Harrison on SNL! They did Here Comes the Sun and then Homeward Bound.

Horrible recording... Live take using one mic? There is no mixing... No compression, no reverb... Still, huge fan.

Jack White is everything that is wrong with Record Store Day. He will release several things in severely small quantities, opportunists will pick them up and then post them on ebay for huge sums. Fans who love the music and are driven/compelled to be completionists will pony up the money and the nobody wins. I think it is great that he has taken such interest in vinyl. I just feel he doesn't understand how many people would love to collect this stuff. Severely short runs really hurts the fans. He makes these things so the fans can feel the connection, I feel he should produce quantities that gives people a chance to experience what he loves about vinyl, owning it and listening to it.

Pretty sure you have the wrong band when you say "slew of eps and pair of full lengths..."

Sounds like the Bullitts is scoring the Great Gatsby and Jay-Z is telling him vaguely how things should sound.

I still babble about seeing MBV live as well. Never been a part of anything quite like it before. The entire audience afterwards was just gobsmacked and felt like a community.

Noel's latest album was really fantastic, he will be relevant for a long time. Liam, however, is no longer relevant.

Holy shit... actual music journalism on Stereogum after the departure of Amrit/Brandon/Scott... I don't believe my eyes.

Oh shit... Hipsters love Fleetwood Mac, I'm going to have to offer my condolences to all the hipsters I see today. They'll reminisce about how they found a single Fleetwood Mac vinyl at a thrift store and therefore became their favorite band after they found out another friend did the same thing. It's going to be a hard day for them all.

Stereogum has become somewhat of a joke... Uncertainty if the writers are actually listening to the music and clearly them seeing any story about a legacy act and then posting it just because. I'm going to guess that Buzzmedia is behind the direction of this site, more pandering and less celebration of music.

April 30, 2012 on New My Bloody Valentine LP, EP For 2012?
"“Ekki Múkk,” though, isn’t much like the Icelandic group’s best known songs — the types of songs that score Wes Anderson movies —" Goddamnit Stereogum... I miss the old guys who actually listened to the music they were posting about.

April 18, 2012 on Premature Evaluation: Sigur Rós Valtari
How did all of you find this blog? This place has gone down hill with Corban and Tom. They have no taste in music, they like music just so they can tell others what bands/groups they like. Same goes with most people leaving comments, you will all go out and buy her albums on vinyl today and talk about how great she was. She was just another voice, a great voice. But she made no contributions to music. Didn't write, didn't do anything unique, didn't play instruments.
