Comments from Stuart Malan

I like the video a lot but the song leaves me wanting more. I really like the sounds it was developing but over all I don't think it went far enough (or progressed fast enough). Just too minimal for my taste. The breakdown and reverb were by far the best parts.

I'm sorry but Outside Lands messed up when they put Phoenix on the smaller Twin Peaks stage. If Outside Lands was smarter they should have put Yeah Yeah Yeahs as the closer with Phoenix performing right before them.

I'm not saying its a terrible lineup but its just a completely bland homogeneous mix of festival bands. Even the lesser know support acts aren't terribly exciting either.

Really? I thought the ending totally killed the episode. I mean showing Bart looking at a picture when he is older is akin to it being all a dream. It just felt cheap like we weren't given a proper conclusion.

Great song. A few of their other songs aren't quite as good but overall I think this band has a lot of potential. They just need to continue to develop that original sound they have.

IMO Coachella has a weak lineup this year. When Lollapalooza has a better lineup you know its a down year.

I think Electric Light Orchestra is well over due. Seriously, every member of The Traveling Wilburys is in except for Jeff Lynne.

I went back and took another look at the Coachella and Bonnaroo lineups and I gotta say Lollapalooza has the best lineup.

Yeah, this actually was a surprisingly good lineup. I don't get how so many people are complaining about it. Just look at the last couple of lineups and then tell me this one is horrible.

WOW! Aubrey Plaza has managed to make an entire career out of doing nothing more than staring at the camera.

Hey grammar nazi, Dave should be capitalized. Just thought you'd like to know that.

I'm sorry but after Jonsi went solo I was expecting something different from Sigur Ros. This just sounds like they're rehashing old ideas. It kinda seems hollow, like its a decaying husk of they're trade mark sound.

They should do this for Danger Mouse.

Its ironic how all the comments on the post of "Comeback Kid" are negative where as here they're positive. I would love nothing more than to see them fail on SNL and be exposed as lame Hip-Hop posers they are.

Do we really need more fake Indie music. This is just another artists for those who like Adele, Florence & The Machine, Coldplay, Muse, The Killers, Mumford & Sons...

Does anyone actually agree with Drake at the 2 spot? Do they just randomly pick albums? If not it seems like they really missed the mark this year. Meanwhile I haven't seen Loch Lomond on any year end list.
