“Fleet Foxes have a long way to go to get to that point,” and they are actually a great band*****

This was a fantastic interview. Wonder how we can get more of these spontaneous exchanges?

So late to this party, but Chris those two situations are not relatable at all. First, Bjork has explicitly said on several occasions that she produces her own stuff. I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure TS (TM) hasn’t specifically said she’s the major force driving her business decisions (other than making the final decision, I’m assuming). Second, echoing other commenters, TS (TM) is surrounding by a major label team (or whatever fake indie label she’s apart of) making it much more likely that the business decisions are concocted by greedy little biz peeps. But of course, it’s not entirely outside of the realm of possibilities that TS (TM) is this genius business person behind her latest financial decisions…I mean, I genuinely loved 1989, so I’m not like part of the SG bloc (hehe) who definitively hate TS (TM)…I’m just sayin’. Let’s get out of the shade and step into the light, son.

Great comparison to Bill Callahan. I agree!

RJ, I was going to find a 311 lyric in your last post and call you out on it, but while I was searching “311 nobody would’ve noticed lyrics” or “311 call you out lyrics”, Google informed me I’ve visited 311.com “several times” over the past month. Moments like this man. Life really is a beautiful disaster…

So my sister and I have been listening heavily to both Prass and Pratt over the past few weeks, and she emailed a friend of mine saying she bought us all tickets to see Jessica Pratt. She then emailed me saying she bought us all tickets to see Natalie Prass. But in the end (it doesn’t really matter), she thought we were going to see Natalie Prass. Point is, we’re seeing Jessica Pratt.

I’ve been waiting for this think piece for like, the past five years AKA thank goodness for the re-return of the 70s. I remember when Fleet Foxes and the harmonizing/beardy 70s folk scene became popular in the mid-2000s it was a beautiful time for music. Now the 70s self-deprecating/fuck-it-all songwriter is coming back? SIGN ME UP. ILYHB is something. Even with True Affection it’s a near perfect record. “The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apartment” is one of the most biting songs I’ve heard in a while. Literally.
