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
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.
thats very Tight Butthole
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.
it was “ok”
Love everything of hers that I’ve heard so far. Sounds like a fierce desert wind.
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?
“Let’s wait to see what the other songs sound like before thinking he hasn’t progressed”
“…most definitely going to be one of the better albums of 2014″
a.k.a. Don’t jump to conclusions guys, because i already have.
mixed the order up on the first line. that’s how blinding my rage was.
“Than it’s not” instead of “then it’s not”
“Their job is..” not “They’re job is…”‘
“your prop argument…” NOT “you’re prop argument…”
swear to god, one of you better start using proper grammar because i do not have the energy to hate two people today.
