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