My mid late 2000s big four was always Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors, Animal Collective (all three of whom put out landmark albums in 2009), and Deerhunter who put out classics in 2008 and 2010. There were other awesome bands operating at the time like LCD and VW, but those four always seemed in a group to me.

I kinda dig it though. I mean the movie doesn't sound like my (or most people's) thing, but I'm all for following one's muse. FlyLo apparently got into guro horror while making You're Dead so this does seem like a logical continuation, and it's not like it's interfering with his musical career

When there's nothing left to burn you have to set yourself on fire. And then party.

If this means we get a gloomy eleven minute industrial cover of "Fortunate Son" I'm ok with that

Simpsonwave is like Tumblr gained sentience but stopped absorbing new information sometime around 2010.

No argument here, I was mostly referencing that amazingly awful press release Condé Nast put out after the sale.

Well as a millennial male myself, I appreciate Condé Nast's sincere attempt to reach my peer group via the Pitchfork Media Group. I'm excited to engage with the content at Pitchfork Media Group and the other appealing properties at Condé Nast including Golf Digest, GQ, and Brides.

I get the impression that like Univision's purchase of AV Club, the higher ups at Condé Nast are pruning the content at P4k into something more streamlined and digestible. Moving away from the underground and into a high minded critical assessment of popular content.

December 14, 2016 on The 40 Best Metal Albums Of 2016
Wait is that a thing? B/c Still They Pray was my favorite metal album of the year, and Cough's live show was the best concert I went to this year. It's not on anyone's list though, am I like a plebe or something?

Radio and television brought us together, they spoke to you and told you a unified narrative. Now the internet is tearing us apart, we can choose what narrative we want to have reinforced and ignore the others. I'm guilty of that too, Lemonade is undoubtedly the album of the year, yet I haven't heard a bit of it. 20 years ago and I wouldn't be able to escape it.

October 6, 2016 on Pink Floyd “Reunite” To Denounce Israel In Statement
Israel was founded by terrorism and sustained by Apartheid. Any argument against no matter how valid is dismissed as anti-semitism outright. And sickest of all, they think they're doing the Palestinians a favor. "Sure we deny the Palestinians a right to statehood and self-determination, but look how educated they are".

Working with kids, Kidz Bop is the bane of my existence. Which is why I secretly jam classic rock on my bus runs. They're going to get their Supertramp god dammit, and they are going to like it.

October 6, 2016 on Do You Remember Rock On Pop Radio: Why Green Day Aren’t Crossing Over Anymore
Gosh, and Twisted Sister's Live At Hammersmith was released 22 years ago today. Far from their greatest, but an overblown live denouement to one of the goofiest, most Dee Snider bands of the last century. Oh, how far we've come.

I saw Hold Steady at a Chili Cook Off two years ago sandwiched between Seether fans on one side and Panic! At The Disco fans on the other. And it was glorious. I think knowing only about 15 people in the audience gave a damn made them play even harder.

Plenty of artists take money from companies these days, it bugs me but I'm not outraged by it. Employing a company to make your overpriced clothing that pays below a living wage and refuses to allow workers to unionize while claiming to take a stand against oppression, that's some bullshit.
