Ugh you beat me to the Parks and Rec gif. But if you're actually Ben Wyatt, then of course you did.

On Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, I have songs that I like better in a vaccuum, but none that I like better while listening to the album than "Poor Places."

I actually love all 5 of the albums you guys mentioned there. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Those bell-thingies on "Nights" are incredible. Yes, that's the official term for them.

Dev and Tom Krell (How to Dress Well) always tweet about playing basketball together and I really want to drain jumpers with them.

I'm not fully sure yet, but I think I love "Nikes." The meaty first half AND the calming, almost Beatles-esque psychedelia of the second half.

"That makes this album gripping to me, in a way that a conversation with an old friend is gripping even when its not about anything." Yes. The fact that it's FRANK talking to me makes it all the more riveting, and I don't think that's a bad thing.

I feel very similar. The bursts of color are what sustain me and keep me loving the album. I'm sure the minimalist surroundings will grow on me, because they're quite beautiful.

Endless really reminds me of AMSP as well. I bet the black and white imagery to that one helped in that comparison though, haha.

I've listened to it four times, once on headphones while walking today on a cold, cloudy morning, and that one was my favorite listen by far. Of course, 99% of the country doesn't have cold clouds to help them connect. Stupid San Francisco summers.

I know everyone has a story like "I was just listening to this band!", but for real, I was listening to my iPhone on shuffle just last week and "The Bucket" came up, and I started thinking about how it's been forever since I thought about Kings of Leon, how they weirdly got so big at the end of the last decade (which graduation already mentioned), and how despite some of the drivel, I still love a lot of their stuff. "The Bucket" is undeniable, as is most of Aha Shake Heartbreak. And I even like some of their newer stuff too.

Views is garbage, but I still ride for Drake. His catalog is too catchy for me to deny.

This comments section is a literal representation of the political echo chamber that we all inhabit. Beautiful work, everyone.

Been looking forward to this video -- they had no choice but to make it as fun as possible, and they delivered.

Is that the Secret Service's attempt to "blend in" with the Lollapalooza crowd? Don't they know the difference between flannel and dad-plaid? Come on, man.

I should say that James Mercer has successfully covered the Beatles before. I still regularly revisit the cover of "And I Love Her" he and Danger Mouse did on Letterman. It's pretty brilliant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXQilNBdRWs

I've come to appreciate "Pop Style" more over the past few months. Didn't like it too much when it dropped, but it's grown on me a lot.

What's the point of even posting this? Not trying to be snarky, just wondering since the rapper's not exactly notable.

Was coming here to troll and say "wanted this to be a Neil Young cover" but then I read your endorsement, actually listened, and yeah I dig this a lot, haha.

Seeing them at FYF in L.A. and then at the Greek in Berkeley 6 days later. Can't wait.
