Music seems pretty good so far. But everything about the release sort of reeks of old people trying to be hip.

Seriously? A wilco album named Star Wars? Worse than putting Hurley on a cover… And theres a cat? And a Beyonce type release? Its like they grabbed every cliche ‘hip’ thing from two years ago and put it on the album cover.

The only way streaming would be viable financially for musicians is if it splinters off into different segments… much like netflix/hulu…. I guess its happening on its own.

I think he’s writing checks his talent cant cash…. What is with the horrible falsetto wail thing?

A pretentious long song like these needs really really good lyrics. This is no Heroin, thats for sure. And also… if you want to go artistic drop the 90s rock star look and goofy guitar stances… But Im not sure if thats even what they were going for? I dont know man. Hes so good at pop music…. just needs to focus on that again.

is this even a song? Its either great or horrible. Aren’t things horribly out of tune at times? Is there a melody?

Yeah seriously. The touring lifestyle loses its appeal as soon as you get closer to 30…. being a rock star nowadays actually seems like a real drag in this world of spotify and work-from-home. I am grateful for the people still putting in the hard work.

Yes, thank you. Although they contain all the elements of a band I should like I just can’t jell with Oshin.

There is a similar band called Girls Names that I think is technically a rip off of DIIV but I like them much better. They have much better song writing.

After all this crap…. I’m actually really comfortable with mp3s finally…. if they are 320 they sound real good….. maybe for blasting loud on a stereo the cd or vynl is a bit better but… ehhhh

Does anyone know if he ever got sued or anything? For the record, I dont think he would deserve to be or should be, but I’m just really curious if he managed to fly under the radar. I can’t tell how popular.

I feel like part of the reason they ended so abrubtly if because he felt the backlash coming and smartly got out in front of it. Most of the song ripoffs are on the third album so I think its really cool he got out when he did instead of running the well dry.

Oh and also ‘home’ strikes me as very similar to ‘this must be the place’
