A Missy Elliott/Bjork co-headlining tour would be fucking bonkers.

This is probably too late a comment to get noticed, but I feel like Owen Pallett's last two albums are "indie" in the sense Pecknold/Longstreth are describing, but still pushing some boundaries and forward thinking.

February 10, 2017 on Dirty Projectors, Fleet Foxes Frontmen Discuss The “Both Bad And Boujee” State Of Indie Rock Today
I view Fleet Foxes in a 90s Pearl Jam situation. They spawned a lot of watered down imitators and then got retroactively lumped in with those lesser bands.

February 1, 2017 on Fleet Foxes Announce First North American Show In Six Years
When I saw Fleet Foxes in '11, I felt like they played in too big a venue and couldn't quite figure out how to expand their sound to fill it out the place. I hope they've mastered that.

People didn't really canonize St Vincent until Strange Mercy though, which came out in '11.

Haha awesome! One of my favorite days at a festival, no doubt. By the time the National came out, my friends and I made it to the front of the crowd. After the show stage crew came out and started taking apart the set, they threw the setlists in the crowd. I caught what I think was Matt's (as it has the starting lyrics next to the songs), currently have it framed on my wall: https://www.instagram.com/p/TRH8q6g-GZ/?taken-by=mikeyetc

Saw them early 08 at Langerado Fest in Florida (RIP). Last song was 'Past is a Grotesque Animal' - Kevin Barnes was carried out on stage in a coffin full of shaving cream. They set the coffin upright, and he came out singing while people in costume popped would come up and balloons full of glitter over him. Once the vocals stopped and the song got to the end jam, he jumped in the crowd and rubbed shaving cream and glitter from his body all over everyone. Awesome awesome set.

Totally different vibe than the other new tracks played on tour last year. Much more upbeat and guitar driven. Curious if this will be on the record.

"All we gotta do is be brave and be kind" is some sage fucking advice these days.

Not advocating that there should be, but will there ever be a critical re-evaluation of Dave Matthews? We've seen Phish, Brand New, blink-182 all get their dues in recent years (deserved or not).
