I hope he made sure that the perceived volumes were exactly the same. If the iphone was slightly louder of course it won every time.

No that’s nonsense. Of course she has a smart talented team. She doesn’t do everything herself, she’s on a major label.

Peter Fonda is sick at those blast beats. Doesn’t even break a sweat.

No, he’s self deprecating and awkward and he might poke a few jabs at the audience like you’d make fun of your friend. At the end he says a very heartfelt thanks for coming.

I can understand being a lifelong super fan of Kozelek and seeing him go off the deep end so to speak could be upsetting. But I think if any fan or band is offended by this, that’s just oversensitivity. As a new fan of Kozelek and lover of his last 5 years of albums, this whole thing is just funny. Ya he’s a troll, ya he’s being a jerk, but jeez don’t let it bother you. He doesn’t give a fuck so why should you? It’s harmless really and I’m looking forward to War on Drugs can Suck my Cock.

Tim and Eric scream and yell at their fans at their live shows, and while it’s more obviously a joke, it’s very funny. Kozelek is just much more dry and obtuse about it. I for one am fine with being called a hipster clone by him from the stage.

Actually, judging from this pic, if you do the math, it’s Riff with the super huge face.

I love it when around the world always mean 5 cities that you don’t live in.

There is something about them making the same song over and over and using the same formula that I still really enjoy. By no means does this song sound new for them, but damn if it ain’t fun to listen.
