Find Me On:
i disagree that those 2 bands “went for hit songs”.
new APHG record? Is that just speculation or DO YOU KNOW SOMETHING??
how was it?
Nope. I’d rather like something because I like it, not so that I fit in with others. There’s no intrinsic reward in liking or learning to like something because people you identify with or respect like that thing.
I understand giving something a 2nd/3rd chance because of the fact that others you respect like something. An example for me was the National. I just didn’t get it, but knew plenty of people with similar taste to me that love them. I gave ‘em a few more spins but still, for me, they’re as dull and shapeless as old silly putty. But I didn’t nor do I wish that liked/like the National.
everyone’s tastes are different and that’s a good thing!
why do you want to love something that you don’t love? it’s ok to say “meh, this sucks”
i have listened to deafheaven and they only serve to underscore the lack of good heavy stuff. in other words, they blow.
was originally the bassist, too.
haha, that would ruin your day now wouldn’t it. *did
i love this dude. follow him on twitter, @arzE. you’ll be happy you dud.
in defense of my beloved ‘Gum, the door swings both ways.
ok, last in the series of serial posts…
Stereogum, how about a commentary piece on the trend of NSFW music videos over the past year or so? seems like every other video has the tag these days. maybe it’s the artistic freedom the internet provides or just good ol’ clickbait.
00. Queens of the Stone Age – The Vampyre of Time and Memory
0. Franz Ferdinand – Bullet
this one grew on me the most from this record. at first listen it’s a straight ahead FF rocker, but it’s full of great harmonies and tight little riffs. criminally underrated songwriting/vocal duo
i think it’s retarded to use the word ‘mandatory’. i thought it was a total dick move with the shit they pulled in NY.
but i still love band and the new record and it will be funner to dress up :)
holy shit this sounds fantastic
met all these guys (including Bob) after a show a month ago and they were very gracious hanging out for a solid 20 mins with about 10 or so fans. so friendly.
ya know, on second thought, i don’t want any DJ sets. i want to see someone/some band perform live music.
they’re in the studio now. and yes, as long as it’s better than the last record. which it simply must be.
they’re just one of those bands. either it’s, ‘this is incredible!’ or ‘this makes my ears bleed!’ i have several friends who share similar tastes with me but who think i’m insane for my of montreal love but when i played them ‘coquette coquette’ they were like oh yeah, well that’s the shit!
that’s cool and makes me think of other bands that you could apply that description to…radiohead comes to mind immediately…i’d say they’ve been 3: everything pre-PH through PH. then bends/OKC, then everything else
i think the latter few tunes of the record give the album as a whole a bad rap, but there’s nothing terribly good in the first part of the record that’s much of a saving grace,
no wait, i think i effed that up
and it will forever be known as Great Woods!
or post-party DJ sets from JM!
let’s prognosticate opening acts:
