is it just me, or does his description of his new album sound like exactly what I want to hear right now? very excited for this.
Ah, Guelph, the best city in the world.
So deserved, and can’t believe I wasn’t there.
Wait, stereogum loves white lies but hates vivian girls?
My god, stereogum readers are the cattiest jerks when they lash onto a certain band.
Hi, I still love Vivian Girls. I”m assuming all of you hate every punk band from the 70s onwards, as well? Since when has “extreme musical talent” = “great music”?
Go listen to some Santana/Michelle Branch duets and breath a little.
I was here, and Grizzly Bear put on the best show I’ve ever seen, and probably ever will see. They were on fire last friday. The Feist appearance was just icing on the cake (and yes, she was adored by the crowd). Grizzly Bear Toronto concert >>>>>>>> Animal Collective Toronto concert (which was great in itself).
Why are there 73 posts in a row with not one person who’s ever signed up here before?
Really strange. Anyway, going to actually watch the damn youtube video now.
The new album is absolutely incredible, tops FHWS for me. Which is NOT an easy accomplishment. Willner outdoes himself.
And I wouldn’t even put “The More That I Do” in the top 3 on the six-song long album, so if you weren’t totally in love with it, I wouldn’t worry.
I am SO high and holy fuck that story blew my mind.
Seriously, read that myspace post high. You will not be able to understand how someone this horrible at typing could be so famous.
Can’t believe you posted this, Stereogum. That was the stupidest and most immature interview I’ve ever read, I’m pretty sure.
And the guy from Wavves ACTUALLY just seems like a really good guy who isn’t trying to make incendiary comments in order to get more people to google his band. Unlike, you know, other artists.
Will definitely never listen to Psychedelic Horseshit. Not fun when you KNOW the artist is a douchebag.
Fuck yes. I want to have gone to there.
I need to dance to this in a large dark room as soon as possible.
What? Holy fuck. You just sent me over the edge here.
Would it have been possible for you guys to make a greater benefit concert? Maybe if it was Bjork/Grizzly Bear.
Oh please. This is hilarious.
I’m sorry I didn’t give the cunt (there I go again!) who decided to just call him a “giant super fag” the time of day of a legitimate argument. But yes, wow “pigass”. You’re right, thanks for enlightening me to the fact that people CAN say fag on the internet. Keep fighting the right battles! (also, you used the “fucking” term three times? so?)
I meant the guy (drool). But she’s cute too!
Proclaimers! And thank you SO much for the Here We Go Magic pictures. Found my new crush…can’t wait to see them open for Grizzly Bear.
God I want to be in Austin so badly right now.
I can’t think of a songwriter’s personal position/issues faced that are more similar to mine at the moment, and I feel like this one will be really special. (Not that I’m touring musically. The other stuff.)
Just hope he realizes that those themes can be really relatable to a guy in my position, as I’m sure there’s tons of other people out there going through similar shit. Excited for this.
“have to explain why he was alone at family events.” touching. Good report Jessica! Excited for (if/when) you get that Joanna one.
No you fucking cannot.
I thought it was really interesting and fascinating. So, it already has tons over 95% of music videos made today. He really fascinates me.
Again….Joanna Newsom please! Please and thank you.
Vespertine didn’t use a kids choir, it used a woman’s choir.
But yeah, I like the comparison. Funny because Bjork and Grizzly Bear are my two favourite artists, so maybe you revealed the link there.
I want a haven on a southern point so bad.
I’m glad people are enjoying what I find to be one of the less-standout tracks from Veckatimest. Just wait until you hear it all. I played Southern Point today 5 times in a row because walking along in the newly-warm weather was just the perfect way to listen to it.
I personally don’t remember the last time I “backlashed” on an album. I think there’s lots of really talented artists out there and that if you don’t like something at one time, maybe you just aren’t listening in the right context?
But ultimately, I don’t give a fuck if you don’t like it, because it doesn’t change how much I can listen and love this.
So please, continue if you must! (cunts)
I don’t get the LOL.
PLEASE do a Joanna Newsom progress report! I know it’s been asked several times. But I just really want to get the point across that I’m dying for that to happen. K good thanx.
Whoops but you are! He’s all of ours’ boyfriend.
