Fool On the Hill
Late-entry contender for a top spot on the summer jams playlist. Awesome awesome awesome.
Or at least a few times.
I’ve said this every time Maron gets mentioned on Stereogum, so I’ll say it again: “LOCK THE GATES!”
I think a wise man once said, “I hate [the paparazzi] more than the Nazis.”
Woah woah woah guys, let’s not judge too harshly or too quickly because if I’m looking at this picture correctly, there also seems to be a black t-shirt option! That alone is worth the price of admission.
I keep thinking that, until someone puts it on at a bar after two or three drinks.
All of the nominees, one big playlist, brats, beer, fireworks, more beer, vodka tonics, more brats, burgers, regret, fireworks, beer, sleep.
My paycheck didn’t get deposited into my account this morning. It’s foggy and rainy outside here. I’m running on no coffee and no sleep. But this is just enough to keep me going till five.
I like this album and I’m a huge Animal Collective fan, but this seems like a minor entry in their catalog. That being said, I’ll throw it on during a lazy Fall day in a heartbeat.
Anyway, I’d like to nominate “Pony Express Record” by Shudder to Think as a future episode of this column. It’s kinda been forgotten in the collective music journalism consciousness, which is unfortunate because it’s a front-to-back great record.
