Aw hidden? This is hilarious.
He also wrote some sweet additional thoughts on his Tumblr. Definitely worth reading.
“The magazine’s really punched up the money issue, especially in the print edition (the cover itself is sort of alarming), but I do want to mention something else, the point that, for me, the whole thing revolves around….”
It’s worth noting that NY mag and Stereogum have taken the opportunity to get a lil sensationalized while the article portrays the band as very level headed, nice guys.
Even writer of the article admits it on his twitter: “The band ( esp. @edwarddroste ) were terrifically patient and helpful and I hope the mag’s provocative cover didn’t give them heart attacks”
Daveydu, you can break down as many numbers as you want but it doesn’t change the fact that it still sounds like you haven’t actually read the NY Magazine article. The band comes across as a group of good intentioned, humble people who’ve worked hard for what they do. At this point, it sounds more like you are complaining and they were just answering questions asked by a journalist.
Also, care to go on record as to what your band is called? Would love to see you have the same courage Droste had to discuss things rather than taking this anonymous holier than thou road.
