Surprisingly close. But yeah, not quite enough to be convincing. Possible cryptomnesia at most.

That's probably one of the less ridiculous bits of writing they single out, actually.

Funny thing, Nine Types of Light was received so similarly to Transference that I wonder if we'll also need to wait four and a half years for the next TV on the Radio.

That said, regarding Transference, I think "Out Go the Lights" isn't just one Spoon's most beautiful song, but one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard. It's some magic on the level of "God Only Knows" or "Waterloo Sunset," I swear.

From another Transference fan... "We’d to well not to take them for granted this time." Preach.

They are trans people. They are the people Arcade Fire wants to help. They exist.

Okay, sure. But when you listened to oppressed classes, you listen to those who are unhappy with their depiction. Trans people who are satisfied with this video are fine! They can be fine. But here is a trans woman voicing the fact that she doesn't appreciate it and thinks they really could have done better. People are dismissing that, but really, I'd dare them to find a trans woman who thinks the video is completely kosher.

I'm saying that if you're going to make something advocating for queer rights and experiences, you listen to those with the experiences you're trying to advocate for. And it's also not that they didn't do enough. Things like this can actually be harmful for trans identities, having them merely be perceived as a person who wears drag. Which is not what it is, and is the reason that comments like justabrobro's (see: below) exist.

Are you seriously saying that Andrew Garfield is being discriminated against because of his gender? Like, read that again. (Also, what's most important is those who NEED the message approving of it. Clearly they don't!)

So when the LGBT community tells you that you're not helping them, you listen.

LeMonjello, the above statement signals your cognitive dissonance pretty well. People who are trans will watch Arcade Fire's video and see a cis actor playing a trans woman, not actually enforcing any empowering message of "We Exist." Try as you might, this is Andrew Garfield. He is a KNOWN cis actor, and is not trans. He is KNOWN to not be evidence of the existence of trans people. People who are not trans have watched Arcade Fire's video and described being trans as being in drag. Someone described it as "putting macho action stars in drag." Do you have any idea how much the idea of trans experiences being drag screws up how seriously people take trans identities? Have you even the foggiest notion? It's not about the performer. It is about the message. But it's about how the message is RECEIVED, and unfortunately, you should listen to trans people when they say that the performer HAS interrupted how the intended message was received. Listen to the people who exist.

'I guess it’s the complaint of ‘You’re not being pro LGBT enough!” that gets me.' Okay, sure. But do you know who's making that complaint? The LGBT community. The one that you're supposed to listen to on issues like this.

Er, no. Especially after this year's Oscars, this is clearly an important issue to to trans-identifying people.

No mention of this? Okay. Ericksson sings the outro to Adventure Time (which is seldom heard on TV because of them advertising what's on next or next week), and their new song "No Wonder I" appeared as BMO's favorite song in the fantastic episode "Shh!"

July 22, 2013 on Q&A: LAKE On Longevity, Staying Busy, And The Two New Albums They’re Putting Out This Year
Think of a few songs you'd damn well better love. "Call Me Maybe." "Complicated." "Since U Been Gone." "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." Max Martin, Dr. Luke, RedOne, Klas Ahlund (member of Teddybears and former member of Caesars, does a lot of production work now including writing and producing many Robyn songs). Songs like these can be done by anyone and can't be said to necessarily belong to those who perform them. Anyone can sing these radio hits and they'll be great. Liz Phair made an album of songs like that. She made the impersonal her personal. While some stay back in 2003 frowning, I'll be over here enjoying the hell out of Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé.

Thank you so much for writing this. I don't know if you saw my comment on Facebook about wanting to read some second looks about this album, but here it is. Me? I always liked this album, and in a year where I think Tegan & Sara put out my favorite album by going hardcore pop, I can't help but feel at least a little validated.

I love so many songs here, but picking anything other than "Get Lucky" feels dishonest.

I don't think he blasted her, but despite his announced intentions to not shame or embarrass her, he does exactly that, particularly when he brings up Chestnutt and Linkous.
