We wouldn't even be having this discussion if you had just said Jack White, man.

Everyone gets that paper, but I really don't think the two examples are at all comparable. You're comparing licensing music for a soundtrack to THIS? http://i.imgur.com/mMhRft2.jpg C'mon, son. That's disingenuous.

I'm probably just a die-hard cynic but this whole thing smells concocted to me.

falls in line with their deliberate attempts to cultivate their brand as adolescent antagonism against nothing. so i wouldn't be surprised if that released statement was just another layer of artifice. Also have no idea why Ethan would WANT to take credit for the lyrics, because they're pretty terrible. Like grade 10 lyric notebook terrible. The music is great though.

I always felt that they gave us What Happened To The Fambly Cat? as sort of a goodbye album, which i personally prefer to a goodbye tour if having both is not a possibility.

March 5, 2015 on Scott Weiland Explains Why Grandaddy Is One Of His Favorite Bands
isn't their whole "brand" like, a satiric exaggeration of what passes for white trash culture in South Africa? They seem like pretty normal dudes IRL away from their artistic personas. Viewed in that context, it seems 0% offensive to me. That being said, literally LOL W/E to this band, in general.

Those spotify dudes need to hire some PR people that make them sound considerably less desperate. They sound like a jilted high-school ex.

October 28, 2014 on Owen Pallett, Amanda Palmer Weigh In On Jian Ghomeshi Scandal
Don't know about the rest of the record but this is basically a black metal cover of Smetana's orchestral piece of the same name. Feels weird to refer to something as a cover of a classical song, but there you have it.

Uh maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but you've got the wrong festival. This was the Ottawa Folk Festival. Folk is in the name. It's a folk festival. And for the most part, bands have a folk-ish element to their music. Most genre festivals bring in bigger bands with more tenuous roots to the genre, just to pay the bills. But still and all, largely a folk festival. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottawa_Folk_Festival

September 15, 2014 on Sun Kil Moon: “The War On Drugs Can Suck My Fucking Dick”
Eh he played another show the day before at the same festival, and was similarly ripping on the comparatively unknown country-folk-ish band you could hear in the background at the time too. ("You guys got hillbillies in Ottawa too?!"). Guess which show's comments make the blog news though. He's just taking the piss to give the show a little juice. Not to mention in that first show the spill-over was loud enough to be obnoxious for the quieter kind of music he plays. I can only imagine how much worse it would have been when a louder band like War on Drugs played. I don't even like Sun Kil Moon that much. It's just clear to me this is being spun into something it isn't.

That Black Mirror episode where the woman's husband dies and in her attempts to cope with the grief, gets a robot with an AI personality tailored to be like him, is one of the saddest hours of television ever aired. Non-stop tears.

Love everything of hers that I've heard so far. Sounds like a fierce desert wind.

August 13, 2014 on Ruby Fray – “Photograph”
I'm honestly befuddled by his prior disparaging of The Unicorns. Yes, it's not "serious" music. And their oeuvre may not hold a candle to Return to the Sea. But Arm's Way was middling, and every Islands project afterward fairly bland and uninventive. Tell me what compares to the sound or the fun of Jellybones?
