You are correct. I just couldn’t hold back. A bands credibility was attacked for no reason, though. They were essentially bullied, verbally, and without just cause. Now, Granduciel has to deal with this shithead out of necessity and justify themselves just in case there are morons out there that actually believe in this ignorant mans cause.
That “joking shit talk” or whatever language you just wrote is an attack on a bands perception to the public albeit an asinine one. Nonetheless, they are a band that works hard to survive to feed their families and support a career, and this backward ass honkytonk inbreed of shit show attacked that for no apparent reason. If that’s the way you treat people “from your region” then head back to your outhouse, throw another raccoon on the grill and look for your next sister to marry before disappearing from a hunting accident, because it flat out ‘aint right.
I was going to actually watch this, but when Anderson Cooper previewed the piece at the start of the show with “….arguably the greatest rock band in America right now,” I couldn’t flip back to my DVR’d Bob’s Burger episode quick enough.
This all of a sudden makes that Jessie Ware as AOTW seem like a unlikely choice….
Nice little Thursday streaming treat! Love these guys although they’ve definitely tamed down a bit since their first few albums but for some reason, I don’t mind at all. I can actually understand Graham a little better now it seems. ‘Fourteen Autumns’ is definitely a good place to start if new to them. I’ve always thought of them as a blend of Arcade Fire and Frightened Rabbit for some reason.
If Pitchfork and Stereogum are the definition of small potatoes, then load me up with starches. Hopefully there’s plenty of room on Billboard and Variety for ‘craps player.’ He can comment on the Hot 100 singles..
I need to understand something, (and this is in no way, shape or form meant to be ignorant) but why is “Cat Stevens” always next to Yusaf Islam’s name whenever there is a song released by him or an article written that involves him. I get that he changed it for Muslim reasons, etc…much respect… but for God’s Sake, the man changed his name in 1978! It can’t still be the ‘ole “Who is Yusaf? Oh yeah, he’s the great folk singer, ya know, the ‘Cat’s in the Cradle’ dude.”
I thought this pic was Austin Powers remaking Whiplash…not gonna lie, I was kinda psyched.
I LOVE the Cassette EP…vibe comes off like early Talking Heads mixed in with a little Wolf Parade.
Allo Darlin’s new one is such a great Fall album..
