Bring back Tigercity!
Really? I thought the pizza joke was terrible and took way too long. I was falling asleep watching that.
Not sure how I feel about this. Sounds like Hamilton replaced Ezra as the lead singer of Vampire Weekend. His voice is amazing though, so it might just take time to get used to.
Windows Phone? Good one!
I can also confirm that they are working on a new album
Jason Isbell’s new album was much better than Neko’s
Titus Andronicus making a punk rock opera is both exciting and frightening. Can’t wait!
That’s a travesty. Definitely top 10
Add this to the list of things I don’t care about
I wish Joel would make another Tigercity album
What about PAPA? Tender Madness is excellent.
I agree with the general message of this article, but it’s much too harsh on The Love Below. I really enjoyed both albums back in the day, but Love Below was my favorite. I recently revisited them and actually found that I like Speakerboxx a hell of a lot more. Nonetheless, I will always have love for The Love Below.
All I can see is a butt, a W, and a L
No mention of Typhoon’s new album?
I’ve gotten pretty tired of these guys, but this video is great. I love to see that they can laugh at themselves.
Gone for Good is definitely the best Shins song
Great performance. I’ve been listening to MCII non-stop for months. Definitely my favorite album of the year so far.
15 years for murder? You kidding me Norway?
I need to change my pants
When did small bands and new artists ever make money? Indie artists have been scraping by since the beginning of music. I understand that Spotify/Rdio pay outs aren’t very good and need improvement, but they are powerful discovery tools. I am much more likely now to get turned onto a new band because I don’t have to shell out 10 bucks just to try it out because if it sucks I’m out 10 bucks. In that model, I am more likely to listen to established artists and never discover the smaller bands.
I’m not involved in the music industry, but it seems to me that the role of record labels in this situation gets overlooked. They are the ones who negotiate the terms with Spotify, so if an artist has an issue with the payouts they get then they shouldn’t take it up with their label, not Spotify?
Great article. People should be more welcoming. It’s just music after all. The more enjoyment and value people get from it, the better.
Good interview. I love this album.
Actually you can listen to the National on iTunes already. Sorry to ruin it for you…
Seconded. Rdio is so much nicer to use than Spotify. If Google can create an even better product, then I look forward to using it.
