I'm not much of a Brand New guy myself, but the reaction to Science Fiction from what I've seen has been really positive. Glad fans who have been waiting 9 years are getting something great.

I have an ipod hooked up to my car that is so old I am afraid to plug back into my laptop. It plays by artist alphabetically, meaning every time I switch to the ipod I hear "There May Be 10 or 12" by A.C. Newman from some iTunes live session.

Oh man Razorlight. That's a band I haven't thought of in a while. They opened for Jimmy Eat World on the Futures tour, shit ruled.

When did the trend of releasing 5-6 songs before an album drops start? Between Grizzly Bear, War on Drugs, and Arcade Fire, it seems like a new thing. Is it because they're all on major labels?

In a couple of weeks? I thought Painted Ruins comes out this Friday.

Agreed. The bands in the indie-sphere who can pull off these fests where they headline multiple nights are ones with deep catalogs and jamband tendencies. Wilco and MMJ can play multiple sets with enough diversity in song selection to sell the diehards that it's worth the trip. I can't imagine three nights of Bon Iver being wildly unique, unless he was playing through each album each night or something.

The guitar solo on the 'Carin at the Liquor Store' is *chef's kiss*. I love the sound of it so much.

Funny you bring up "Sister" and Wilco. I've always thought, instrumentally, the back-half of that song sounds like something straight off of A Ghost Is Born. Add in Angel's "ALLLL MY LIFE I THOUGHT I'D CHAAAANGE" and aaaahhh its so good.
