I haven’t liked their last few albums at all (loved most of All That You Can’t Leave Behind though), but I’m still very interested in hearing about their new singles whenever they arrive. I’m not particularly interested in their other news or song debuts unless it’s a single, part of the Spider-Man musical, or particularly good…
I love it!
It’s like The Joshua Tree mixed with Darkness on the Edge of Town, yet completely original!
Also agreed, The Monitor was my favorite album of the year so far and certainly at least top-10 material!
I absolutely love a decent chunk of Avi Buffalo’s album (Summer Cum, Jessica, What’s In It For), but as a whole, it’s not even close in quality to High Violet by The National or Beach Fossils’ album in my opinion
Nice playlists! I actually just made my SUMMER JAMS mix a few days ago!
Some notable 2010 summer jams from mine:
“Power” by Kanye West
“Ghost Train” by Summer Camp
“Jailbreak” by Thin Lizzy (Summer throwback jam)
“Vacation” by Beach Fossils
“Wait Up (Boots of Danger)” by Tokyo Police Club
“REVOFEV” by Kid Cudi
“Down By the Water” by The Drums (Summer slow jam)
“Shine Blockas” by Big Boi
“Wouldn’t It Be Bad” Lady Gaga & Ke$ha VS. The Beach Boys by DJ Clive$ter (Summer mash-jam)
I love this band, but I really wish everything I love wasn’t covered in meat today (ie this video, the KFC Double Down ads on here).. it’s really grossing me out..
It would be amazing if the album version sounded like this, but alas, there’s nearly no chance of that happening…
pretty easily the best song they’ve (well ,Billy Corgan has) made since the singles from Melon Collie…
I surprisingly actually like this!
[adult swim] really needs to give this man a show!
I have a feeling he’d love it.. Ever hear The Replacements’ cover of I Got You Babe? It’s sloppily fantastic (just like all their covers of songs)
(Obviously, Unsatisfied has a lot more emotion behind it, but I think Courtney does an interesting take on it)
Ma’am, I don’t mean to be impolite, but do you actually read Stereogum, or do you just have a Google News Alert about Owl City? At least 9 out of 10 of the news articles discuss bands that are well-liked here. Can there not be one band to discuss and hate on?
