Quality stuff. I hope he gets a bit more attention for his work this time around.

This makes me just as excited as a new Radiohead record would. Loved Familial.

It’s different, but still a worthy and top notch addition to their catalog.

Maybe it’s a bit old by music industry stand-points, but “I Couldn’t Be Your Friend” by Tegan and Sara is a winner in my books.

That and “Diane Young.”

It still is good. It’s a bit different, but still hilarious.

In terms of the buying merch and going to shows part, I’m with you. But, it should be said that you shouldn’t confuse your enthusiasm for an artist by posting on blogs, tweeting, facebooking, telling friends, etc. with support for that artist by things you said you do like going to shows, buying merch there, etc. There is a clear distinction.

June 19, 2012 on David Lowery Blasts NPR Intern On File-Sharing

Rereading it in that light, I can see what you’re saying, and I think he is actually saying something more like that. It seems to me he’s just angry that people think some art is better than other art, where as he would just like everyone to appreciate all art equally.

June 12, 2012 on Billy Corgan Will “Piss On Fucking Radiohead”

Can we get a link to the interview he’s referencing? What did Radiohead even say that was filled with “pomposity”?

Is the cover art going to be like those bumper stickers?

June 1, 2012 on The xx Coexist Details

The song is alright as a whole, but yeah, that fuzzbass definitely makes it sound like a Ben Folds Five track and not just another Ben Folds track.

May 7, 2012 on Ben Folds Five – “Do It Anyway”

That looks awesome. Kind of reminds me of the Charlie Darwin video from the Low Anthem.

Definitely with you on this one.

April 1, 2012 on Stereogum’s 25 Most Anticipated Albums For Spring/Summer 2012

Yes but we do not need another Sumday. I must admit that I so rarely love one album (SS) and hate another by the same band. Usually at least like SOME of their other output…..

They’re good books, man. Quite different from Twilight, especially in that they’re well written.

March 2, 2012 on Arcade Fire – “Abraham’s Daughter”

Guys, he’s a person! Be kind, come on. It’s original, you have to give him that.

February 2, 2012 on Band To Watch: Ryan Power

Very happy about this. BUT I am afraid that it will tarnish their original career a bit if it sucks. Folds’ solo music hasn’t exactly been stellar in the past decade.

January 26, 2012 on Ben Folds Five Prep Spring LP

The “Beth/Rest” piano version would be really great, but I doubt that’ll happen.

January 11, 2012 on Bon Iver To Make SNL Debut; What Should They Play?

You should have written “Ryan Gosling (Dead Man’s Bones)”! I don’t understand why that project isn’t more celebrated. It’s so great!
