Fads, phases, trends, and rages. Guitars aren’t going anywhere. And certainly a 15-minute fame band like Icona Pop is not going to change anything. C’mon.
Unfortunately you missed the best Bonnaroo moment of, potentially, all time – the small stage (Solar Stage) show featuring a Supergroup of Soul Khan, Black Violin, Jeni Suk, and Knower. This was an incredible, once-in-a-fucking-lifetime show.
This will be a great song in the next Pixar space adventure movie.
Totally, seanjean. Like you, I clicked on this link for something mature and thoughtful.
For as many perfect songs as Destroyer has put forth, his best might actually be the Pitchfork (and 2011-12 touring) version of Libby’s First Sunrise. Absolutely crushing.
More like vintage Huey Lewis.
I thought I was playing Pilotwings for the first four minutes there.
I agree with both of these responses in terms of popularity differences, bands of old and new being successful and ‘rich’, etc. BUT, they key difference in these arguments will continue to be the difference in The Times. The ‘Bleach’ of 2012 would not sell 2M copies, obviously, because the model has changed so drastically since 1989.
Appalling that anything positive is said about this sound rapist.
Sounds like we should all just wait for Bonnacruise then.
I’ll keep an open mind, but I kind of agree. Was hoping this would be more driving or electronic – basically hoping for more ‘Keep Your Eyes Ahead’.
My last name is Fox and I STILL find this band name to be laughable….but good song.
Can we all collectively stop describing time passing as having been a “minute” or a “moment”? It looks even more ridiculous than it sounds.
I know you are ‘just sayin’ because you wrote it. But thanks for the explanation.
When the F are the Long Winters going to come out of hibernation?
I think this is pretty great and wild nothing to panic about.
Dude, go hang out in turntable and see how many people stay in your room.
Those are some sick beatz, homie! A collaboration with Pink seems like the logical next step. I can’t wait to hear that hourly on every super awesome top 40 radio station that Washington DC offers me!!! ;-)
Agreed – terrible.
Fuck it – lets continue driving down this odd road: Speaking of quality assembly line music, can we all please start talking about the new Nickelback album and how they are hit machines?
“7 habits of highly addicted people”
Stereogum, let’s stay away from the ‘filler’ articles, hmm? What’s next – pictures of indie rockers picking up their pet’s poo? Can’t wait!
Hartford nailed it. Newsflash – most bands are just cool dudes like most of us that read Stereogum, except they are more committed to actually being in music. Thus, they like the same great bands we like. Some bands are meant to stay under the radar (because they just aren’t good enough to be popular/widely known).
This would play on repeat in my Hell. Commence sin repenting.
