I'm sorry but NIN is pretty much the definition of one guy making decisions on how an album is composed so, as much as I appreciate Kim and Soundgarden, this seems like a poor angle to attack anybody from.

Wait, aren't these guys on tour with NINE INCH NAILS right now?

This may be the funniest collection of song titles I have ever read.

Wow I went to upvote you and accidentally clicked the wrong thumb. For the record, I spilled milk when I read that.

Right?? I haven't been let down by a single album I've been looking forward to this year. Very rare.

The BBC recording of What Difference Does It Make is easily in my top 5 Smiths songs. Very respectable list.

Slaughter. Dammit. The word was "slaughter."

This is a hard one, but it has to be Revolver. That was the one that really got me hooked on the Beatles. I always liked Taxman for the gritty guitar solo but once I finally got to the pop turnarounds on And Your Bird Can Sing and the infectious psychedelia of Tomorrow Never knows, I was sold.

Foals are very steadily becoming my favorite band ever.

I probably wouldn't appreciate the Flaming Lips as much as I do without having seen that film.

yeah, that's always been a bit of a let down.

I thoroughly agree with this list except I would put Brighten The Corners between Slanted & Enchanted and Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. It was when they played Starlings of the Slipstream halfway through their set at Sasquatch two years ago that I knew I was going to be listening to this band for a very long time to come. Then they played Fight This Generation and it REALLY hit, but I particularly remember being really moved by Starlings when I saw them.

Hm. Yeah i see what you mean. The whole thing has become just unfortunate.

I think her original thought was that it'd be a chance to have fun on stage with fans but she didn't really fully think it through.

Is it actually a JOB, though? (In this instance, not being a musician in general)

I thought initially she was going for the whole charm of less than pro vibe?

If I knew how to play a horn even a bit, I'd want to do this. It just sounds fun. Music is supposed to be fun, remember?

Bandcamp introduced a dedicated mobile site recently which is actually pretty satisfying. I'm sure you've probably seen it, but still, it's worth mentioning. http://blog.bandcamp.com/2012/08/20/every-bandcamp-site-is-now-an-awesome-mobile-site/

Certainly not their best, but definitely mid-range, i'd say.

I don't understand why people don't dig 4:13 Dream. That's a great album.

Just bought a promo copy of the album that mysteriously appeared in the used section at Everyday Music in Portland. It is very good. I've spun through it about three times and it definitely feels like an album I'd like to get to know more. It feels like a logical next step but brings back a lot of the old flair that a lot of people have missed. Well done Dandys, well done.

April 3, 2012 on The Dandy Warhols – “Sad Vacation”
I'm excited! It seems like they really took the positive fan reaction to This Is The Tide to heart on these songs so far especially with Zia and Fathead writing a lot on it.

Really really dig!ging this track. I was iffy on the other one at first but it has really grown on me. I'm hoping the second track is kind of a rocker because this one builds and builds but never quite breaks a rawkin second track would make dreams come true. woot!

Spaceboy. Seriously, when the full band kicks in with the mellotron is one of the most enchanting musical moments I have ever heard.
