The just-released 'Tender Warriors Club' by Lady Lamb needs a shoutout. Good if you're chasing that Feist high.

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).

Would rather Stereogum stop trying to make Brand New a thing. I survived the "Seventy Times Seven" away messages one time already.

When "On a Neck, On a Spit" gets going about 2:00 minutes in, goddamn. Favorite Grizzly Bear song no doubt.

First time I saw them was in 09, and by then, 'All Hands and the Cook' was a total monster live. Definitely recommend checking out the iTunes Sessions with it.

Great interview. "The Hustle" as been in heavy rotation for me recently - can't wait to hear the whole album.

TWFM > High Violet for me too. High Violet sounds a little too fussed over and has a few songs that haven't aged well (looking at you 'Conversation 16'). TWFM sounds much more natural and has strong songs, I think.

August 4, 2016 on The National’s Matt Berninger Talks “Weird, Math-y, Electronic-y” New Album
Great read! One of the big reasons I think the big festivals are struggling for turnout is a lack of intriguing headliners. I love Pearl Jam, and seeing them at lolla 07 was a huge treat because it was their only US show that year. Seeing them headline bonnaroo when I can catch them at another tour stop this year? Not worth the hassle.

Primrose Green was one of my favorite albums from last year, glad to see the quick follow-up! Hopefully this means fall tour.

Holly Herndon was one of the coolest shows I saw last year, not sure how it would translate to an afternoon festival set though.

I caught Deerhunter's show last night at 930 club in DC. "Nothing Ever Happened" was jammed out for like 30 minutes, with Bradford singing a seemingly improved bit about Scott Weiland. Lyrics were like "Scott Weiland achieved a lot, made it to the top, of the mountain. Slid down, slid down. Back of a tour bus, back of a tour bus." It was bizarre. Curious if anyone else was there and caught more of the lyrics.

"A source says that the band will join U2 onstage for their final song, and that Josh Homme, who doesn’t normally tour with the band, will be present." Sounds like this would have been a powerful, emotional surprised. Glad it leaked and it's not a surprise anymore!

Live b-52's interests me, that's about it. The Devo "Live at Max's Kansas City" release from a year or so ago was really good.
