Same. I sure am glad we have the internet, allowing for the free exchange of information and ideas across the world.

I'm still feebly holding onto hope for a new Sleepy Jackson release.

I thought it was the drummer who filled the insufferable douche quota in this band. Gawd, who does this guy think he is? Jack White?

However you feel the need to frame it, I think this is an awesome gesture that I haven't seen many other bands make. Pretty cool imo.

I thought the cover was the worst thing I'd ever seen until I scrolled down and saw the hilariously bad bobblehead-esque band promo pic. Song's not too bad though. 80s Metallica is the only acceptable form of Metallica after all, so trying to recapture that is a worthy goal.

If someone doesn't intend their statements to cause offense, maybe the more measured response would be to attempt to educate them about what can be felt to be offensive about their statements, rather than slapping an 'unacceptable' label on them in order to expediently dismiss them from society.

August 17, 2016 on Blake Shelton Says Unearthed Racist And Homophobic Tweets Were Just Comedy
They all read more like dumb, clueless dad jokes than hate speech to me. Maybe someone could explain to me which part is "inexcusable" and "extremely homophobic" and demonstrate the mental gymnastics needed to arrive at that conclusion.

Cautiously optimistic. Needless to say, I would attend the hell out of a reunion tour show with a strong emphasis on classic era material.

I'm pretty sure the last track of the album is what was earlier released as 'Deicide', seeing as how the title 'Their Kindness is Charade' is the first line of the lyrics to that song. In which case, we've heard 5 songs and 3 previews. 'Femen' is listed as being 2:33 long so I'm counting that as a preview since the video was only like a minute and a half.

But Koopa Troopa and Toad actually had the best handling and maneuverability, they just had shitty top speed. YOUR REFERENCE, WHILE AMUSING, MAKES NO SENSE!!1

Sorry, I'm not American and I don't get that reference, except for the part where I'm being randomly compared to a serial rapist.

it's just reductive ignorance to solely blame the cops rather than the larger social and economic forces at work; forces that create or contribute to the dynamic where African Americans are statistically more likely to commit violent crimes (which, while inconvenient, is empirical fact), thus stoking the fires of bigotry. It's (inefficiently) treating the symptoms rather than the disease.

Imo he should hold on to a tenner and get a decent haircut.

Wonderful. TYLS is quickly becoming my fav Beach House record.

I can't even conceive of the bizarro fantasy world in which I would pay $200+ for a t-shirt. I can't even bring myself to buy regular band shirts at gigs due to the price.

Probably gonna be between this and Angel Olsen for me. So psyched for both of them. I hope I'm not setting myself up for disappointment.

August 2, 2016 on Watch A Trailer For Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ New Album & Film
Was going to make a comment about how this band and this album in particular is a guilty pleasure of mine but it appears as though others like it around here too, leaving my guilt pleasantly alleviated.

Excited for new Warpaint, but hoping this works better in the context of the album.
