Wow to that cover art. Everything about this is awesome! Missy’s Girls on repeat.
Wait, so just to clarify, you didn’t read Hipster Runoff before because it is fucking terrible, but now that you have read it you now realize that you didn’t read it before because it is fucking terrible? I’m sorry your sentence didn’t work out too well, Nick, nice idea, but bleh.
It’s like he’s trying to figure out as many ways to sustain output without making an actual new LP. Christmas songs (mostly all preexisting), Illinoise b-sides, and now a remix album? I hope the next thing is Seven Swans overdubbed in an amalgamation of Esperanto and Hopelandic. Probably!
You watch your mouth about Fiona Apple.
“Overjoyed” accurately describes how I feel about this news! CS’s first album is pretty immaculate in my opinion, even now when I listen to it it still sounds fresh. And no, I don’t expect it to be a carbon copy of OTC, as another commenter pointed out they are two different bands. Perfect start to my day, thanks Amrit!
It will be interesting to see how Wavves are received at P4k this year….
AGREED. (Not sarcastic.)
What about HAVING IDEAS ABOUT THE WORLD? What about that?
Okay, not to be the Pitchfork apologist, but I think P4k is really not that megalomaniacal. That’s really silly. Sure they kind of broke down Black Kids, but I think they were just being honest about their lapse in taste then rather than “testing their powers of destruction.” Plus, if they didn’t report the Wavves meltdown, don’t you think it would be even more conspicuous? If the article carried a noticeable tone of disappointment (I think the word “tragically” was used), it was probably because they were understandably disappointed, like many people were.
Good comment. Very critical.
