Find Me On:
I Need My Girl is great, but um, isn’t that the exact riff that closes out Sufjan’s “Impossible Soul”?
Radiohead is borderline Jimmy B!
i can’t tell the difference between this and OK Go or Rooney
if it isn’t the only t-shirt he owns, then its at least the only t-shirt he brought on tour…
good performance, and avey just sitting there was hilarious
yeah i don’t see how Thirteen could be anything but #1, i could listen to it forever
i like seeing El Goodo at #2 though, probably my 2nd favorite as well, but i wasn’t sure it would place that high. pretty good list overall!
close… i think its actually “bulimic vegetarian”. haha
this list is just…
i mean, i love College too, but i wouldn’t even put it in their top 50, man. they have too many great songs to include that one here.
Banshee Beat, Safer, Fireworks, Rev Green, Mr. Fingers, WWIW?S, Street Flash, Winters Love…
laptop speakers are just a terrible way to listen to music. especially music with any sort of subtleties (basically AC’s whole discography).
thats like saying ‘shouldn’t a movie look good no matter what it’s played on?’
of course not, imagine watching Tree of Life or Baraka (insert pretty movie here) on a B&W 4 inch tv instead of on some HD shit. whatever, you get the point!
nah its just almost every time i read a negative comment that sticks out to me, i see your av and an association between the two develops
i understand the AC vs GB debate to the extant that they’ve both released some of the most anticipated records of the year in 2009 and again in 2012 (and the Dirty P’s are definitely part of this debate, too). but Ass-Kicked89 is right, thats where it should end because there is really no other comparison to be made.
but trinity, your statements on AC being a hipster phish jam band for alt bros just make me think you saw them live and were pissed that they didn’t play My Girls (since u luv the panda). so they like to extend some of their songs and transition them into each other when they play live, so what? from their standpoint, that is probably really fun for them and is a good way to not get sick of playing the same songs over and over again for 2 yrs straight. keeps it interesting, even though a lot of the audience might not be into it. anyway their music is, obviously, COMPLETELY different from so-called jam bands… but, the minute they start playing rock standards and having 15 min guitar solos – then you can call them a ‘jam band’. also nobody i personally know who listens to them is an alt bro. so, your generalizations (clearly showing distaste, for whatever reason) don’t really hold up.
as for Today’s Supernatural, its probably not gonna be anyone’s favorite from the album, but i’m surprised so many people can’t handle it. its really not that crazy compared to basically any other song of their’s. maybe a bit faster paced than usual, but thats it.
so is grizzly bear the only band you like? you seem to shit on absolutely everything else… its just weird to see you gush about something.
also not sure i would call this next level shit. this is probably the most simplistic and straightforward song GB has written so far. not that its bad, i enjoy it, but – next level??
hey man i agree w you, but everyone in this thread that got downvoted said something stupid or at least not constructive or interesting in any way, so they get downvoted.
also i’m interested in your claiming to like Panda’s first solo album… honest question – are you talking about Person Pitch? cuz i don’t know anyone who actually likes his first one (self-titled), and PP is his third.
(no snobby intended)
if you haven’t listened to these in a decent pair of headphones yet then you haven’t really listened to them… so much going on in these songs, more obviously in Honeycomb, but also in Gotham.
and you gotta love that standard rock band ending of Gotham! haha. definitely something new for them, maybe it shows they are embracing the ‘jam band’ label a little more??
no no no. Dave trying to hit high notes is the best sound there is.
ok, substitue ‘brostep’ in everytime i said ‘dubstep’ then.
i know the difference, and you know what i am referring to here – i’m obviously not talking about Burial…
when i first started hearing dubstep and seeing its fans, my immdediate thought was “so this is the new mall-goth metalcore”
and it wasn’t til later that i found out that Skrillex was actually in From First To Last – the definitive myspacecore band – and it all made so much more sense to me.
so yeah, the ‘bass-drop as breakdown’ theory is totally true. dubstep is basically the electronic equivalent of all those myspace bands who had pretty melodic verses leading into xXxFucKIn_bRUtAlxXx breakdowns. thats the winning formula.
so, explain to me again, how does that make Skrillex good??
oh and as for the song, i think its one of the most beautiful songs he’s written. his vocal melody and performance are just great. the original was just piano/vocals but adding the other instruments definitely gives it a Floyd-y vibe, i dig it
you’re right, this song was on a compilation already, but this is an updated re-recorded version of it… i don’t see anything wrong with releasing that! i’m happy having both.
finally listened to this today after reading high praise from a lot of places, and… am i the only one who thinks this basically sounds like Green Day?? cuz it does.
have you listened to them before?
sounding like they had bad monitors was basically their MO… and actually that video was one of the better vocal performances ive heard from him. haha
so sad. really bummed about this. and yeah, there was little hope for a new Women album ever happening even before this, but now i seriously doubt that it will ever happen. anyway, my thoughts are with his family and those who were close to him.
wait, we’re still calling her music ‘freak-folk’?
well yr in for a treat, michael!
its called “Bronny on a Breakaway” and it was released a few months ago. i know its on iTunes for sure
