Your rating comment reminds me of how weak Pitchfork is getting these days...I saw today their 6 albums you 'need to listen today' were DJ Kaled, Prince (reissue) Radiohead (reissue) Vince, Jeff Tweedy (basically reissue of sorts) and Lauren Halo. These are the most essential albums of the week? I think not. This is essential listening. PItchfork, today is the day I know for sure you sold out.

Maybe I'm reading into some past comments the band has made regarding how difficult it is for an indie band to make a living, but this seems like the closest thing they've ever come to immediate, accessible ear candy, and wonder if they are trying to gain more traffic with this album. Either way, all three songs are fantastic. I love chewing on Grizzly Bear albums.

Yeah because you, Dave and Eddie in the same room putting together your idea of a Van Halen show would work out so well...I can see it now, Dave: 'OK, Ill come out and do Runnin with the Devil into Unchained, OK? Sammy: Aw man, love it! Then, I'll follow up with 'When its Love' in 'Right Now' Eddie: 'See, I knew this wouldn't work.'

Great tune...wedged this lil gem in between some Beach Fossils and Lana on my summer mix and it fits in quite nicely.

No one was able to track down said jug thrower, but those that were interviewed mentioned they saw Emmet Otter briskly leaving the venue.

June 20, 2017 on Hellfest Audience Member Throws A Jug At Linkin Park When They Play Their New Pop Hit
I agree with your description but Dark Side and Kate is a bit extreme. I think the perfect description is P4K's labeling it as a humid pop album. I've never been a big fan but this is solid. I'll go another way...if Taylor Swift was all giggly and dancing at a club, Lordes the one over in the corner near the pool table rolling her eyes.

June 16, 2017 on Father John Misty Congratulates Fleet Foxes On Their New Album
I felt as if I somehow owed to Fleet Foxes to put in the time to listen to it like I was drinking a kale shake. Then, about halfway into it I had to wash it down with some new Phoenix which felt a cool as Listerine.

Not for nothing but 'sheer exuberance' doesn't even sound like a positive endorsement in the first place. Its similar to when Elaine was called 'big head' by an ex and Jerry thought is was almost a compliment.

With much respect, it must be so hard to make something this beautifully complicated sound so confusing and bland.

Well now that was a refreshing delight lit against a backdrop of a day full of angry twenty somethings with bad band names, Seinfeld not hugging and, of course, Queen Monopoly

June 7, 2017 on Fleet Foxes – “If You Need To, Keep Time On Me”
Fleet Foxes? I mean, maybe I'm the only purist left that waits, but still, thats like giving the Oscar to a movie today thats not out until October. And, even if 44 is where it sits after that argument, then I guess I should be prepared for a let down.

Yeah, because that's what I'll think of when I tune into another lopsided MNF game, the fact that country boy Hank Jr. thinks Obama is Hitler base on a comment made back in 2011...what a revelation.

June 5, 2017 on Liam Gallagher Blasts “Sad Fuck” Noel For Skipping Ariana Grande’s Manchester Benefit
The least they coulda done was something fun like unlock the songs if you were able to solve this asinine approach to 'revealing' a simple track list. Teasing new music is one thing, but to put this much effort into showing us merely the names of songs? What a bunch of dorks.

June 3, 2017 on Arcade Fire Share Everything Now Tracklist As Anagrams
Peeked at the setlist online cuz I had to know what it'd be and, respectfully, it leaned heavy on the Adult Contemporary Phil which totally understandable, but still would have loved to see a little sampling from some deep cut Abacab, Duke, or Genesis. Can't complain tho...good to see him out there.

June 2, 2017 on Watch Phil Collins Sing Rarities At Comeback Tour Opener In Liverpool
Ugly how? A band makes a financial decision they believe is in their own best interest? Scruffy is right...adopting a policy of advancing one's career at a presumed cost of one's integrity is futile today in the world of Apple and Spotify. Their reach can possibly now be extended beyond the capability of an independent company that may not be able to maximize AF's future, as they see it.

Did you actually think that would have been the time to do so? Make 'potato' jokes? You're "thanking" him for this? Seriously, I know the whole asinine Liam/Noel feud is funny in some twisted way to those who have no time on their hands, but to be thankful that what happened in manchester be tied together in any way within a statement is disgusting to even speculate.

It's easy to be angry. Takes far more class to yourself as a beacon for support in a town you so call 'home.'

How cool would it be to have Gilmours Fender all over these songs. Then, we'd have us some Final Cut. That being said, this is a really good song.
