Fuck it. I also think think it's a great song. Sorry I didn't make a show of support earlier Tom.

Agreed. Especially if bands like Priests and Savages are considered indie rock. Seems like more of a language problem we're having here. Or to invoke FJM, it's a bit of a Socratic dilemma. Let's define our terms, people.

February 10, 2017 on Dirty Projectors, Fleet Foxes Frontmen Discuss The “Both Bad And Boujee” State Of Indie Rock Today
Love how Robin carefully cites '09 as the last year of progressive indie rock, as if FF debut wasn't part of the musical consciousness of that year. Otherwise, reflecting on past and present music culture will always be of interest to me. I feel like they did an adequate job! But like, as much as everyone likes to shit on FJM for discussing Foucault's philosophy in relation to our society (which didn't even seem that off-base), it feels less frivolous than expounding on the current state of indie rock. FJM seems like he's grappling with some real shit (as we all are) and can't avoid talking about it at all times (which seems to be more representative of at least the crowds I run with). What the fuck ever. All I've been reading about is fucking organic chemistry and molecules. Maybe I'm out of touch with life as a whole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agreed. Also, The Master is one of the best films of the past decade. I'm skeptical putting that here....

Alternatively, Fleet Foxes is one of the only bands my mom can tolerate when I'm playing music in the car. Well, actually just Mykonos.

Pom Pom is a masterpiece. At least some people agree on that here.

I felt the same way....I love FJM quite a bit, but I need more out of an album cut. Although, let's wait and see. Album sequencing my friends.

AWESOME. Haha I do that with my roommates every day, except rather than being on a mountain, I'm making coffee with music blasting from the front of my sweats. The album is GREAT. I'm planning a full on comeback too. See ya out on the threads, urchin (that's, uh, some Johnny Tsunami material for ya). GLAD YOU'RE WELL KEEP SHREDDING

This is just ; you guys!!!! We're all together experiencing this goddamn incredible album that well to be as honest as I can be after a few "sungold zingers" is I'll admit it making me cry alone at this bar and also making me miss everyone here but at the end of all of it I'm so glad this community is non-toxic and thriving and wow blochead really blew up and also where is RJ? But this album is A+, I really think so. Hi dansolo! Hi everybody! Despite the current inebriation, which is much less common these days, in all sincerity glad we can experience this all together! I hope I'll be around more, nights is just fucking incredible. Also Frank dropping AN ELLIOTT SMITH LINE!?!? Fuck man, alright I'm gonna watch Bergman and go to sleep, great to catch up y'all

November 30, 2015 on Animal Collective Announce New Album Painting With; Hear “FloriDada”
Seriously agreein' with all this. Add Julia Holter to the list, and it's golden. BTW thanks for the 9.0+ female-fronted album analysis. Never realized that...very suspicious. Not to mention Ys is probably my favorite album of the past 15 years and absolutely deserves a 10 IMV(ERY)HO.

November 10, 2015 on Album Of The Week: Eric Church Mr. Misunderstood
But really, this song is incredible! I saw them at FYF a couple months ago, and they played this as well as 5 or so new songs, and it was all really really great. Their live show, aesthetically and musically, was perfectly executed, and even approached a level of uneasiness and noise on par with live To Be Kind period Swans!!!!!!!!!

LOL. I know it's been a while, and I do plan on making a more triumphant return to commenting, but damn gotta say this killed me. Maybe more of a Linkin' Park vibe though.

Definitely! First track was like ooooK. Second track, not bad! Miley Cyrus singing classic-sounding Flaming Lips songs is fine by me

August 26, 2015 on Stream Craig Wedren’s Expanded Soundtrack To Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp
Conversation between parents and 14-year-old punk Tom in the back of the family minivan: "Tom, this is a classic 60s/70s folk singer Joan Baez. Along with Bob Dylan, she wrote and performed historically important protest songs amidst racially and politically turbulent times" *Listening to Ice Cube on his cassette or Zune or whatever* "Screw you guys. Rap > music" "...Tom, no one understands what you're saying. Rap IS music..."

August 18, 2015 on Album Of The Week: Carly Rae Jepsen E•MO•TION
Oh no!!! I just saw this and now it's probably too late :((((((( So this is all true! I introduced myself to Scott after recognizing him in the crowd of the Natalie Prass show at the Stereogum stage (which by the way was awesome! Great jobs y'all with the stage and lineup and execution). We chatted about 311, the rest of the peeps on here, music, etc. I met his Dad, who was also very nice. Didn't realize Scott was such a 311 fan TBH. He was rockin' a Don't Tread On Me shirt from the 2005 third annual Unity Tour with noted openers Papa Roach and Unwritten Law. To be honest for JUST a moment, Scott seems like a really nice guy who cares about music and this site and doin' good work, and it was a real pleasure. As for my DLitman status, I was actually closer to 0 this weekend (I KNOW), but I did manage to get D'Lit pretty hard one night recently. RJ, if and when and really when I meet ya, I'll make sure to be completely 10/10 passed out Dick Litman'd. Baby Dick lives on
