They're all good but Cat's Cradle rules. I also really like Breakfast of Champions for just how bonkers it is. Slaughterhouse Five I ended up rereading the day after the election, and it was exactly what I needed.

It's amazing how Coldplay worked hard to drudge up a degree of skeptical critical respect only to release A Head Full of Dreams and then shit like this.

Nah, I don't think it's just your taste. I think "indie" got codified into a particular thing around 2009, and other music rose up to push against that. Here's a series of tweets that sort of touched on it that have me thinking now: https://twitter.com/lfitzmaurice/status/830080977812721664

February 10, 2017 on Dirty Projectors, Fleet Foxes Frontmen Discuss The “Both Bad And Boujee” State Of Indie Rock Today
You have got to be kidding me with that David Longstreth photo. Especially when his new stuff sounds like it's just pulling from what everyone else is doing at the moment. God. I am excited for this song, though: http://i.imgur.com/18JvhjZ.png

It really is. I've spent the entire week wrapped in despair and a good portion of this morning in particular feeling truly distraught, which led to various flashes of anger and sadness. Then I remembered this was out today. Things aren't automatically better, but it's definitely the salve I need at the moment.
