David Lowery is not relevant to anyone, anymore. Dude looks like a turd. Go on a tour and connect with your fans bro…thats where any artists will make the bulk of their money; unless you’re a singles-driven, industry-created, top 40 artist. I hope piracy, bandcamp, soundcloud, and the DIY ethos continues. The music industry, like most corporations, is about one bottomline-$$$. Piracy, bandcamp, and soundclous cheapens the music industry’s brand by allowing other channels of distribution without being royally raped by the business. Sorry Mr. Lowery, no one cares about you or Metallica or any other old dudes who are still stuck in 90s or whatever time you were still relevant.
Just as music critic Jon Savage asserted that Britpop was “an outer-suburban, middle-class fantasy of central London streetlife, with exclusively metropolitan models.” Bro-step, is “an outer-suburban, mostly white, middle-upper class fantasy of urban center streetlife, with exclusively metropolitan models.”
I like to listen to Nickleback when I’m sad and lonely. That song, “How You Remind Me,” just hits me in all the right places.
OF is all hype. The retarded little brother of Wu. Can anyone even name at least 4 members of that group? I’d take Main Attrakionz & Kendrick Lamar over those fooliyones anyday.
You sound real smart. eldave. I appreciate that thoughtful and very deep analysis of what is “indie” and what is “mainstream.” I can tell you really fun to hang out with.
Not what I’m trying to say. I meant, people who like the Black Keys think they’re indie because its not as mainstream as…lets say…Nickleback. Black Keys fans are same demographics as Nicklebacks’ fans. Its just a new era.
“In the US, El Camino debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and sold 206,000 copies in its first week on sale.” Thank you wiki. If you like bar rock, more power to you. You just can’t say its any different than what Nickleback was/is trying to do.
Like I’ve said before, The Black Keys IS THE SAME AS Nickelback. Dirty rock for shitty bro dudes and people who think they’re down with independent music because they get MTV2 or MTV Canada.
Skillex is not about the music or a cause or any message. It’s a drug scene for kids from the suburbs or bro’s in a fraternity looking to rape some poor girl who is too hopped up on Molly. I’ll take Burial over Skillex anyday.
Ohh forgot to ask if you want to buy my ticket?
and they’re bands that should never play together again. Embarrassing ATDI is only reuniting for a festival.
I hope so too, Have fun at Brochella.
Why is the Black Keys headlining? Liked how The Black Keys blasted Nickelback when they’re essentially the 20teens version of Nickelback.
Besides ASAP, Kendrick Lamar, FlyLo, Yuck, Real Estate, Dre & Snoop, most of the line-up are so-so. I thought Refused was fucking dead? Squeeze and other bands that reunite for festivals are dumb. Bands need to know when their stay is over welcomed (U2, Radiohead, REM, Metallica, Jane’s Addiction)
