Spoken as a true white male who has never experienced racism a day in his life. If you think the problem is the riots then there's not point in even having a debate with you. The peaceful protests have been going on for days, the media didn't pay attention until stuff started to burn. In the words of MLK. "Riots are the voice of the unheard." You would think the cops would have paid attention with the protests at the end of last year, of course they didn't, they think they are above the law, because it's been proven time and time again that they are. Don't criticize the symptoms, criticize the actual problem. Killer cops who kill with impunity from a system with racism in it's DNA.

April 29, 2015 on This Baltimore Protester’s Michael Jackson Dance Is Your Moment Of Zen For The Morning
I'm sorry. Downvote me to hell. This song is really not that great. I'm by no means anti pop music but I just don't find this interesting. At all. Any overplayed song by Adele is easily a million times better than this. I know it's unpopular here to diss Chvrches, Purity Ring and the like, but i've had a lot of tequila and it's all starting to sound the same. Praise Yeezus. (Not a dig at Kanye, I'm probably the biggest Kanye Stan who frequents this site. Need that new album ASAP So Help Me God)

Took me a couple of listens to get into the new sound, but man TVOTR does it again. Kind of hard to listen to the new Foo's album all the way through after TVOTR.

Looks like rock music and indie blogs have something in common. An identity crisis. Seriously seems like everything here lately is mainstream. Guess indie rock really is dead. I'm not a fan or anything but i'm pretty sure Mumford and Sons are pretty good with the whole lighters up sing alongs (it's kind of their thing). And speaking of Jack White. No mention of Ikey Owens passing this week?

Spoon, Local natives, and Death Cab were ruined for me by talking teenagers in the front. Literally heard more talking than Britt's voice.

Yup. Exactly what i thought when I saw April, especially with mutual interest from U2 and Paul Tollett.

The Cure was amazing. Started early and played until the plug was pulled. I don't see how anyone can complain about that amazing set they played.

May 31, 2014 on Jack White Calls Black Keys “Watered-Down” White Stripes, Later Apologizes
I asked Kyp and he said they are aiming for mid october for the new LP! Let's hope it happens. I may just be an overzealous TVOTR fan but judging from the 3 new songs... The AOTY is upon us.

I'm off topic but.... Tv On The Radio just played 3 new songs at Bottlerock in Napa tonight and all 3 were as badass as Mercy. New album this year it it will be fucking amazing.

Does he know that they've made music past Creep and Pablo Honey? That's the closest to a Radiohead album Grohl could ever make.

May 26, 2014 on Foo Fighters Promise LP8 Not “Some Crazy, Bleak Radiohead Record,” Reveal Collabs With Gary Clark Jr., Zac Brown, Preservation Hall Jazz Band
What a disappointment. Shitty lineup, for a festival put on by a shitty beer, curated by someone whose output lately has been equally shitty. Philly get Yeezus, Spoon and the fucking National & LA get's the shitty Imagine Dragons. Well FYF has nothing to worry about.

Imagine Dragons is as much of a rock band as Mackelmore is hip hop, which is to say not at all. Actually on second thought Mackelmore is more hip hop than Imagine Dragons is rock n roll.

January 27, 2014 on Imagine Dragons – “Radioactive (Remix)” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)
Really.... No David Bowie??? In what world does Phoenix make the list but David Bowie gets omitted? HAIM above The National and Arcade Fire? And what about Local Natives? Sorry, Yeezus is not the best album of this year. Modern Vampires should be at #1. Poptimism has gone too far.

Immortality. That song reminds me of beautiful melancholic rainy days in SF when I was in film school.

The tape rewinding part is The Arcade Fire equivalent of Radiohead's TreeFingers. Great album. Right now the second half is doing it for me more but Arcade Fire albums always take a while to grow on me. We Exist, Normal Person, Awful Sound (Oh Eurydice), It's Never Over (Oh Orpheus), Porno, Afterlife, Reflektor and Supersymmetry rank among their best work to me. Those songs will kill live.
