Not to mention Tim’s solo album, which is mostly reggae/dub/ska and pretty good, or Rancid’s collaboration with Buju Banton.
I’ve been following your columns from Pitchfork to Stereogum and will gladly continue back over at Pitchfork. I hope you’re able to have some input on the Pitchfork Music Festival too, metal and otherwise. The heavier acts have been highlights for me, particularly Kylesa’s set this year. Would love to see some more heavy and dark music – there’s plenty of it right here in Chicago.
Keep posting about metal. I love it and there are not many well written or well rounded forums for discussing what’s going in on that end of the musical spectrum.
And seriously all you Animal Collective > metal commenters. Do you really listen to Animal Collective? Do you understand that their entire approach is based on drawing influences from anywhere and everywhere? Ever read the liner notes to Person Pitch? Noah likes metal! I can’t believe I’m even bothering to make this arguement.
Viva metal \,,/
