Wow. That crowd looks terribly bored. Hope people on Sunday are feeling a little more, well, fun.
Man, I forgot all about this video. And I feel terrible about it. It’s so damn good.
Though, now I’m hankering to watch some more Friday Night Lights for some reason.
Yeah, I like Grimes a lot and dig Visions, but I honestly never though the album recovered post-”Oblivion.” Like, the other songs are good, but after the back-to-back of “Genesis” and “Oblivion,” nothing else is going to look as good.

We are too, buddy. We are too.
Oh hey that’s close to where I work. Slumber party!
Don’t start talking about a second coming of Wolf Parade or you’ll break my heart.
Matthew McConaughey continues his streak of taking on surprising, challenging roles.
Honestly, I feel like the big thing that bummed me out with them started with Our Love to Admire: prioritizing the guitar. The first two albums have great guitar work, but it felt like the incredibly tight rhythm section was what was leading the ship. Songs could turn on a dime, in part because Carlos D’s basslines on those first two were just so damn flexible and smart. Once they started downplaying that some on OLtA, it felt like a lot of the “thrust”–for lack of a better word–started to fall away from the band, and it continued into the self-titled for me.
Again, I like this song quite a bit, but a more dynamic bass line would absolutely have been welcome. Oh well.
I ended up liking this way more than I anticipated. Has a sense of urgency after the first minute that I don’t typically associate with Interpol. Feels like Interpol, but still a little different in context of their “sound.” Though, it seems they trade this off for the slinky rhythms that characterized a lot of their prior songs.
