I was at the LA Friday show and while it didn't sound like the complete shit show of the Saturday one, they played pretty bad as well. I've seen them about 8 times before over the years however I left Friday really disappointed by their performance. The setlist was okay but they had zero energy, the sound was off, and they were really sloppy (not in a good way like they sometimes can get live). Maybe they are rusty from being off the road for so long or having Atlas Sound open up is too much for Bradford?

The $9 isn't so bad when you are ordering 4 LPs. I was able to grab Deerhunter - Cryptograms/Fluorescent Grey EP, The Walkmen - Everyone Who Pretended To Like Me Is Gone, Tame Impala - Innerspeaker, and Elliott Smith - New Moon.

Wow, the amount of people giving this shite a thumbs up on the You Tube page is 10,398 to 83 (probably all Stereogum readers).... we are vastly outnumbered.

Yup, Gary Wilson is a cult performance artist since the 70's and some of his songs are actually pretty good. Saw him in perform in San Diego where he lives last year. Beck name checked him in Where It's At, "Passin' the dutchie from coast to coast/like my man Gary Wilson rocks the most."

"Thematically, Cleveland channeled Washingtonian poet Richard Brautigan on 'You Disappear' and 'Oranges,' and sought inspiration from Charles Burns’ Seattle-set graphic novel Black Hole." http://www.thestranger.com/blogs/slog/2015/05/14/22219715/listen-here-la-luzs-new-single-you-disappear

May 14, 2015 on La Luz – “You Disappear” (Prod. Ty Segall) (Stereogum Premiere)
My vote has to go to AA Bondy's great version from an early Tour EP. The stripped down lo-fi sound paired with his voice really capture the lyrics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lB6CQIZfBbQ

Good interview. Must be from a little ways back though since they tweeted (god I hate that word...) a few days ago that they are almost done mixing the 14 songs that are going to be on the record: http://twitpic.com/8fdbu3

While I think the last few years Sasquatch might have had the edge, this year Coachella blows this lineup out of the water.

I don't know, I saw them the other month ago for the second time and I thought they were pretty boring live. They just kind of mope around onstage. Love their music though!

This lineup is ridiculously awesome. Sunday is a bit weak but oh well. April can't come soon enough!

This list needs Xray Eyeballs' "Crystal" video. That's one great bathtub scene!

Is it just me or does Pumped Up Kicks sound a lot like Papercuts' Future Primitive?

I agree, that video is horrible. They couldn't have come up with anything better than a "clowning around" video? It's like an modern day LA version of The Monkees. I have to go with Washed Out. Cults' "Go Outside" was SO 2010...

Blown away I haven't heard A.A. Bondy yet?? If he doesn't count as "band" I'll go with his earlier band Vernbena

Johnny Marr also came out with his own ltd edition PF Flyers a couple years ago. I snagged a pair and have only worn them once I think... http://www.sneakerfreaker.com/sneaker-releases/Pf-Flyers-X-Johnny-Marr/

Can we please get rid of the using the word "meh" to describe things. So freakin' annoying. Is it too much effort for you to try using a full sentence with adjectives like an adult?

While they share some similar bands, I'm still liking Coachella's lineup WAY better. Plus you aren't out in the middle on BFE...

I pray you are joking, especially with the text type abbreviations... $200 dollars for Emminem, Rage, and/or Lupe? Do yourself a favour and check out Pitchfork Festival and discover some good music.

"We Used To Wait" was especially bad and a poor song to select. The performance seemed contrived...

November 14, 2010 on Arcade Fire Return To SNL
Holy guacamole I stayed home and watched it on TV and was completely underwhelmed. Sound was awful, not sure if it was the usual par for SNL or Arcade Fire. I haven't caught them on the new LP tour but having seen them during the Funeral and Neon Bible tours I was severely disappointed!
