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.

Guess i’m in the minority but not really feeling this list. Here’s mine. Love these guys…almost as much as Radiohead.

1) Ambulance
2) Province
3) Killer Crane (tear up every time because of Gerard)
4) Keep your Heart
5) Shout Me Out
6) Repetition
7) Mercy
8) Family Tree
9) Let The Devil In
10) Lover’s Day

Not that I don’t like Wolf Like Me just have heard it wayyyyy too much.

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.

Here’s one of the songs

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.
