That was one of the cooler things I’ve ever seen.
+1. But while their fate (mild commercial success, all downhill by the time you hit the age of 30) seems depressing compared to a band like say R.E.M., it’s still a better life than 99.99% of other forms of human existence.
It’s interesting the way the piece shows they still get along. I’ll bet that’s partly because they never had a hit song, even though they were probably capable of writing a hit and Hamilton certainly has a hit song voice. Bands like the Strokes and Interpol that did go for hit songs don’t seem to be very happy with how it turned out.
Well-written piece. Doubt he really bought the same U47 that Sinatra mainly used, I think it’s still in use at Capitol (and it’s actually a u48 I believe.) However Sinatra did at one time or another sing through pretty much every other 47 or 48 Capitol had so it’s possible Hamilton purchased one of those.
These guys’ B-sides are better than almost every other bands’ A-sides.
Please let it be so.
Wild Flag didn’t really do much for me.
Like 50% of the things Kanye says, I find this wack as hell, but I am grateful for Kanye’s level of crazy 100% of the time.
Ice Ice Baby is better than all 10 of this combined, admit it.
No Kacey Musgraves, Ashley Monroe, Brandy Clark, or Caitlin Rose?
You should have called this list 50 best albums for pasty white boys*.
*who also fancy themselves down with some hip-hop out of PC necessity.
He started from the bottom.
Never heard anything he’s worked on since Test Icicles. They had a few rad songs.
LOL at the downvotes. I guess it’s AWESOME to dictate what other people should allow with their art? Some of you internet people are hilarious.
Lame to dictate what other people should allow with their art.
I think Yim Yames was joking about expecting a “super-collaborative” tour. Anyone who’s ever toured with Dylan knows you don’t get to meet him.
320 doesn’t sound quite as good as FLAC but on cheaper speakers you’re right there’s no difference.
holy shit you’re right it’s 96 on mobile and only 160 on desktop/free. so pathetic.
are you sure? i think most people listen at something like 192, which is bad but not terrible. 320 is not bad but only mildly degraded. i like my music w/ zero degradation, that’s just me.
Tyler is bringing real rap back! Now destroy him on wax, Tyler. So hard he has to go away.
I’ve wondered why more bands don’t play colleges. Now I get it.
but even the higher bit rates sound much worse than CD/FLAC, so it’s a choice between Spotify Bad or Spotify Worse.
I heart Grimes.
It’s no coincidence that some of the artists who work the hardest to make sublime-sounding recordings like Foals and Thom Yorke are the most against Spotify’s shitty-quality mp3′s.
The 2Pac of fashion? Would that be like Thug Life cufflinks?
