I haven’t enjoyed a Xiu Xiu track this much in ages, and I really liked the last couple of albums.

Maybe enjoyed isn’t the best word, but you know what I mean.

Not only was this thing surprisingly awesome, but it reminded me how great pizza is. Wow, what a good food.

For a second there I thought you meant the Sudanese-Australian rapper Bangs had made this video.

Might’ve been a little bit different

This album is unbelievable, and this whole article has made me appreciate it even more.

and on a side note, I don’t think I’ve ever heard guitars sound more perfect than they do in the opening bars of Everyone Choose Sides. And the way Charles sings ‘I’ve walked away from more than you imagine / and I sleep just fine’ absolutely floors me. Every freaking time.

definitely the best of the tracks released so far from Kiss Land, but I’m a huge sucker for The Zone so I guess I was always gonna like it.

I’m sure one day Miguel’s gonna jump on a track and it’s not going to be amazing, but it sure as hell doesn’t look like it’s happening any time soon

this has nothing to do with Marina Abramović, you can’t just telephone in a grand artistic statement and avoid any responsibility. Abramović puts herself through her art and inhabits it, for a much longer period than she expects any of her audience to do.

You can try to say that they are challenging expectation of music and live performance all you want, but at the end of the day, all it is is a dick move aimed at people who actually care about and respect what you do. It’s Death Grips laughing at their fans for liking them in the first place. Fuck them.

You are not music. I would have to say that this is though.

Not a bad list at all, but Tecumseh Valley really needs to be on there
