yeah, that makes three of us. I can’t hear anything that remotely sounds like either of those artists. Might as well have said “gloomy chillwave ballad matches Antonoff’s Ol Dirty Bastard-via-Nick Lachey vocals with Claire Boucher’s breathy high-end coos”. It would have been just as accurate.
I don’t know if there was anything “funny” about this story. But allow me to summarize for anyone who doesn’t want to read a novel.
This dude heard something for free and liked it. Then bought tickets to see the band, but got buyers remorse and nervously avoided paying for the album, then got to the venue and waited again to purchase because why look like one of those guys carrying around an album at a show. then the band didn’t sound amazing, so again – saved from buying the album. As luck would have it – he never paid for any music, but he wishes he hand’t paid for the show because it was no good.
long story short: never take advice from the cute girl at work as to what to listen to because you’ll end up dragging your wife to a show that she hates while you try to look cool, but ultimately get bummed when you don’t see the girl from work – who you’d hoped would give you a congratulatory handjob in the breakroom in exchange for your ticket stubb, but meanwhile now you can’t even jerk off at home because your wife wants to punch your ears off for making her listen to A Sunny Day in Glasgow when she wanted to watch True Blood and listen to Ellie Goulding.
Long Story Super Short: Never commit to buying any music because there’s always going to be a better place to spend your money when the internet offers countless places to stream for free or little money – also, fuck that cute girl in accounting with the bullshit taste in music and the asshole boyfriend with the cool beard i hate that guy and uuuggghh!!!
but you look like you want to be him, circa 2003.
GvB has Chairlift in their top ten as well. And Was Fiona Apple that good that you needed her in two spots? Here’s your cookie for being so close to Stereogums list.
good call on “Insight”. that’s one of my all time favorites. I always felt like ULTRA was way underrated.
I’m with you on that one. It’s a staggeringly good album. One of the best of the 00′s.
Absolutely, how can they possibly forget about those sloppy redneck sons of bitches when discussing Radiohead’s catalog. Why not include everything from “Youth and Young Manhood” all the way through that album where they have the video where the bring a magician to village of black children. Yep, KOL sure know how to make poverty sexy.
Damn it! Not even Halloween yet and I’m already having to hear Christmas jams? Well, at least this one is pretty solid.
ugh, AnCo fans are literally the worst fucking people.
