I didn’t much care for Sean Pecknold’s animation for the FF tour, but this is really haunting.
Best worst comment ever.
This album is awesome, and as amrit writes, it sounds fresh and young. Is it okay if I think the drums sound a lil dated though?

I agree, except I’d say it’s more like Two Guys a Girl… mashed with cheap 30 Rock knockoffs. Based on the one episode I saw, Zooey’s character is basically wannabe Liz Lemon. Best/worst part: when the black guy walk into Zooey’s room with a basketball for no apparent reason except that, you know, he’s black and black guys carry basketballs everywhere, right?…
That said, it *is* early, and there’s enough potential that it might improve, but I’ll wait for someone else to tell me it’s gotten good before tuning in again.
That said part 2, I still have a massive crush on Zooey.
My favorite all-time: “Under a Hollow Tree” by Royal City
“Fall of the Star High School Running Back” – the Mountain Goats
“Deianara Crush” – the Mountain Goats
“Rush Apart” – the Rural Alberta Advantage
“The Hoofs” – WHY?
And if we allowed five more seconds:
“Trees Are A Swayin’” – say hi
“Country Caravan” – Blitzen Trapper
“We Don’t Say Shut Up” – Danielson
(not indie, I know) “I Can’t Explain” – the Who
I’ll spend the day getting absurdly excited about the lone date marked by “$.”
Half his label is on stage.
Well, SNL does have notoriously bad sound. This doesn’t sound great, but some of the other performances on that show make me think they thorax-punch every performer. TV on the Radio, I think, takes the cake for worst ever.
Phoenix, of course, wins the “best ever SNL performance” prize.
Is that the Amen Break I hear?
Better than the album version.
I thought I did.
“Sylvia, get your head out of the oven…” I love that album.
Is this link not working for anyone else or is it just my computer?
Pretty gorgeous, ah think.
Although, I’m not certain it’s “purposeful,” because I heard him speaking English at a show and, well, he’s not quite fluent (see also his English song that sounds like Hopelandic on med sud i eyrum etc). Not criticizing, because I can’t speak a word of Icelandic or Hopelandic.
