Excited to listen even though I’ve heard all these songs already. Kyle Gilbride has had his hands on my favorite music of the last 3 years. I remember thinking he should do the next Weezer album when I heard the awesome Upset LP.

February 2, 2015 on Stream Quarterbacks’ Self-Titled Debut Album

I’ve spent hours listening to Katy Perry, Jessie Ware, Ariana and Charli XCX trying to hear what everyone likes. Nothing they’ve done has ever grabbed me, it’s nice considering the other stuff played on the pop radio. I’m just not into many modern pop acts I guess. I absolutely love that Octahate song though.

The Band was mostly a canadian band, Levon was the only American I think.

July 21, 2014 on Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – “Fault Lines”

When they called the riot grrrl comparison lazy I was thinking the same thing but the album’s influence goes beyond just the name. The comparison may be lazy but it’s influence is loud and obvious.

I agree. I can’t believe anybody who has seen Arcade Fire live would have “Wake Up” all the way down at number 6.

The triangle just puts it over the top, this is pretty blatant.

March 7, 2013 on Does This Kohl’s Shirt Rip Off YACHT?

Swan Dive, Dixie Cups and Jars, and Misery Over Dispute are my favorites but the whole album is awesome. Anyone who is a fan of Waxahatchee should check out Hop Along and Torres, both released great albums in the last year.

I was hoping you’d do this Phoenix’s Bankrupt first but I did enjoy this album.

“When Winter’s Over” by Torres just because you guys have ignored that whole album and it rocks.

January 16, 2013 on Youth Lagoon – “Dropla”

Not enough indie acts especially in smaller fonts. They nailed some obvious but there is a ton of misses. Sound City Players headlning? Goldenvoice isn’t that clueless and where is Beach House?

No one listens to music ironically. Grow up, Peter Pan.

Struggling artists aren’t making a lot of money from their art? This seems to be the case throughout all of history minus the last 50 years.

Tom sure made this article cute and cuddly after his xenophobia shown through the against me article. Also anyone sticking up for Tylers homophobic comments by claiming ignorance or using the protection of art is just wrong. He knew what he was saying was hateful and he’s just as bad as religious nut. Good for Frank though I’m sure he won’t face much negativity considering he’s friends with the musicians most likely to use homosexuality as a jab.

July 5, 2012 on Frank Ocean Comes Out

I’m 25 and have been downloading music illegally since I was 12. I buy albums out of support when I really love a band or they’re fairly small but usually it takes incentives like art work or limited editions to get me to pull the trigger and even that’s pretty rare. I do feel bad for the artists especially when I think about how people I admire like Victoria Legrand, Jeff Tweedy, Win Butler, Justin Vernon and Robin Pecknold deserve to be Led Zeppelin or NSYNC rich but I justify all the music I download mainly because I could never afford anything near the 100 albums from 2011 that I downloaded last year. I’m a college student with a shitty job and most of my money goes towards whiskey and (when I’m flush) musical instruments. The truth is I don’t have a lot of sympathy for artists who still make awesome amounts of money and even less for the record companies who haven’t figured out how to fix a broken system.I think of my generation as the first to grow up on illegally downloaded music but even before then the first piece of music I ever owned was a cassette of Paul’s Boutique by the Beastie Boys that I stole from Warehouse Music.
