i remember when albini was tapped to produce the album. everyone was like “uh oh, so long nevermind”. everyone thought they were going to go for the throat.

they did, but it wasn’t a big black album, which was what everyone also thought was going to happen.

lemme break down the video for you: it’s actually a pretty typical day in canada and is basically what happens all the time up there. even david bowie.

welcome to the alternative/indie music world, where this has happened ad nauseum since time began (the early/mid-80’s). it’s rinse/repeat for some people:

1. band puts out incredible first or first and second albums. buzz begins.

2. band puts out third album, by this time mainstream success and hype are bubbling out of the pot.

3. band, who has already been on a evolving trajectory with trying new sounds, actually strays away from making the usual, by numbers approach (which would have been met with just as much scorn from the peanut gallery, i assure you)

4. people who were into them since the beginning (which they will tell you this several times while blasting their new stuff) become hostile and hate new sound/fans/album

rinse/repeat. the only band i’ve seen escape this is radiohead, and i don’t know how the hell they did it.
