And with Thomas Mars being the vocalist, drummer, and co-writer of “Playground Love”

Horrible recording… Live take using one mic? There is no mixing… No compression, no reverb…

Still, huge fan.

Not a typo, google it.

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.

errr… “the very Interpol-sounding first single”

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.
