Speak, Dev! Write songs about the racist police state. We're starting to get the technology we need to fight back, but we don't have much of a soundtrack. "A revolution without dancing is not a revolution worth having" - Emma Goldman

yep, cheap_suit - drums actually have pitches too. i guess these trolls are loving them drum harmonies.

Good read. I guess Spoon probably left Merge b/c of the reaction to Transference, since it was as great as all their other albums.

I remember several years ago Calvin Harris made a cool track called "Merrymaking in My House". I guess he turned to a more profitable business - cheesemaking.

LOL, there are no harmonies on the Tame Impala song. You're thinking of reverb. Fridmann's a magician.

She wrote songs that feel real to teenage girls. In theory, that shouldn't be particularly original, but in reality it's extremely rare. She was the "My So-Called Life" of music. Unfortunately, her ripped-from-my-diary style can easily veer into predictable shtick, as is the case in a bad way with this song. The next step for Taylor is to learn how to write killer songs that aren't about Taylor Swift.

please forward me the songs you were writing when you were 15. then list me the other artists who wrote songs as teens that made a generation feel like she spoke for them like no one else.

Right?! So Gap that they might've funded it w/o even requiring their actual logo be used. I'm starting to realize that Taylor may be a preternaturally-gifted songwriter, but as a person she's deeply basic and that's going to hold back her musical development.

I applaud Taylor trying to be bold but abandoning her highly original talent to sound like everyone else is not the way to do it.

um, what else would it be other than the melody? people generally don't get accused of stealing someone else's hi-hat sound.

It might be Paul more in electronics-tinkering mode (which he's actually really good at) rather than song mode. Either way hope to hear it.

My vague memory of this record is except for Portions for Foxes, it's all kind of same-y. I think Under the Blacklight was probably much better.

Oh whoops on my typo - I think he might feel like I do. Which is that as a user of the internet, I've heard of this thing called "Let it Go", but I'm not sure if it's a song or a cartoon or what? I heard some snippet of something but I thought that can't possibly be the thing people are talking about. Yeah he gives really good interview. Very psyched for the new album. This year is shaping up to be the best in music in a decade.

I agree, I don't like when bands talk. And I've never "Let it Go" either.

the singalong crowds prove some people think it's fun but to me they're a prime example of a boring beige strummy generic indie band.

I'm sure you're right, ATP is equally to blame - like P4K - for not realizing that boring blog bands are not viable in the real world. Primavera on the other hand books amazing fun festivals with bands that people actually like.

Looks like when you have a Pitchfork attitude to booking festivals - no bands that are too fun or easy to enjoy (w/ the exception of Thee Oh Sees) - people aren't that into it. Big surprise. There were several other good bands but no great ones and many boring ones.

I saw the Spoon show before this one and yeah, there's none better. Even Kanye can't fuck with their level. Glad you liked Kacey. Off to look for a link of Boots.
