Ha! Who in Wilco is into noise/grindcore?
Did NOT expect to see that Full of Hell & Merzbow album on here.
Full of Hell isn’t my bag, but Wilco clearly do have great taste.

Its probably worth mentioning that Clickhole is owned by the Onion. Also this was incredible haha

You can get tapes slightly cheaper, but not much. But CDs aren’t hip :(

April 23, 2015 on Record Store Day’s Best Seller Was A Cassette

For a band with such a laid back style they have a surprisingly large amount of extra-musical dirt. Not enough for me to stop liking them though. Oshin is a killer album.

The fact that she referred to her fans as “paying customers” made me throw up a little.

Lexy’s other band Night School is really great too (better than this imo)

His face has been photo-shopped to hell, and its very jarring. No human his age has a skin like that

April 9, 2015 on Black Sabbath’s Big Farewell Show Is Actually An Ozzy Osbourne Solo Gig

Just sitting down with this record for the first time. Just from the two singles I’ve heard (Cops Don’t Care Pt 2 and Every Song Sung to a Dog) I could tell it was going to be special. After reading your write up James I’m even more excited for it.

RSD really has become gimmick central. But I guess if they’re going to do the whole “limited edition 1 day only” thing I’d rather have it be gimmicky stuff that I can live without than stuff that I actually will be pissed if I can’t get a copy (like that Sunny Day Real Estate 7″ from last year)

March 25, 2015 on Singles Band Citizen Dick Is Getting An Official Release For Record Store Day

I’m assuming you’re joking? Either way, I do feel kind of weird that his brother openly admits that a lot of bands can only get by with help from wealthy relatives, but Win still has his head up his butt about bands “selling out.”
In the current climate, not selling out and still making a living off of your music requires either privilege or luck. Nothing wrong with either, but no point in demonizing bands who legitimately could make a career out of their art, but find themselves in positions where they can’t turn down support from corporations like Vans or Red Bull

Gotta add that I don’t have it *that* bad either, as the 1 independent record shop in town is incredible.

Where I live (Tallahassee, FL) I’ve found 3 places to buy new records. One is Barnes and Noble and another is Urban Outfitters. So you don’t have it *that* bad.

I love this band so, so much. Get Disowned is incredible album and Hop Along are a FORCE live. Kinda surprised this article didn’t mention that they’ve got a few dates opening for The War on Drugs, considering how much Stereogum loves them.

March 9, 2015 on Hop Along – “Waitress”

Yeah, those were the days. Back when people actually bought music.

Its really unfair to cast this as a story of bands “losing integrity” and completely ignore the fact that entire revenue streams for struggling bands have been destroyed. Obviously no one thinks corporate sponsorship is ideal, but its becoming a necessary evil for a lot of these bands to be able to keep playing.

March 6, 2015 on McDonald’s Responds To SXSW Band’s Angry Letter With A Sarcastic Hashtag

No mention of Nickleback at all? Its cool that she has “indie cred” now, or whatever but she’s still putting her music out on Chad Kroeger’s label if I’m not mistaken haha.

I’ve been lucky enough to make it out to SXSW for the past two years in a row, so I don’t have too much room to complain about not being able to make it this year. But maaaaan this line up is killing me. Wish I could be there :(
