That’s an insult to vaginas.
A girls got to do what a girls gotta do! I never needed that damned liver anyhow, always got in the way of my drinking.
Oh man oh man I can’t wait for Coachella. I’ve never been able to afford tickets for Thom Yorke but I just recently sold my liver. I’m sure it is worth it.
Good job you guys! I really like the new site, and it’s nice that it connects to Facebook so I don’t have to command paste every time there is an awesome post (which is often).
The fact that businesses really cannot progress in this day and age without adopting new technology, I feel this is a smart move for both you guys and the readers. Just don’t become a publicly traded company or anything:) I’m happy.
Wow those steamy lights sound amazing.
She is so talented. I want more.
That is an interesting take on Aeroplane, and Crimson and Clover sounds really pretty. I like this combination.
God I love Victoria’s voice. She is fucking phenomenal.
Sadly Stereogum is kind of famous for having some hateful comments. I don’t even mind when people say they don’t like a particular song or band, but it’s especially disheartening when they start attacking other people.
We are kind of a community so I think it would be nice to just be friendly and constructive. It really is all about the music.
Fantastic!! I will see them in LA.
I care what he has to say because he always ads relevant comments instead of attacking people.
This song is really good and I wish they were playing at Coachella…
Good point…I guess I was just being a bitter old woman shaking my fist at the youngsters and their damn music:)
I think any collaboration with RZA would be awesome. I guess I just have a bad taste in my mouth regarding Disney tweens due to my poorly matched college roommates listening to their music constantly. But of course if you or anyone else is into that shit than this is good news.
Omg! Joe Jonas! I hope they cast Hannah Montana for their next video.
In all seriousness, I like Contra…but if they’ve entered a realm of famous where mingling with Disney children is the norm, I will stop paying attention.
I don’t if I dig this cover or not. Very early nineties.
Damn! I don’t know why people think this lineup is boring, I just bought Coachella tickets, and I’m jealous because The National aren’t playing.
Damn it I was only six months old when this came out….but it still got me through angst ridden teenage years when my pussy generation was spitting out musical abortions like Nickelback.
She’s so dreamy.
Oh this is awesome. I feel like a fifth grader, because even though she has amazing credentials, I’m also excited to have a girl contribute. Pop a bottle of fine Korbel!
Eh, well recording in L.A. will do that to you.
The lyric “it’s ok” is the perfect way to describe this song. I can’t wait to hear the rest, though.
Well, I guess I’m not going to drink this smoothie I just made.
It is interesting to note that in four days, charities raised more than four times the dollar amount for Haiti than the victims of the 2004 Tsunami. The amount of money donated to Haiti in that period of time is also more compared to the money raised for victims of Hurricane Katrina. So, perhaps, the viral philanthropy of texting and Facebook is beneficial. Either way, let us not forget Haiti as time goes by.
Well, whether or not you like the cover, the gestalt is that a talented musician who has created legitimate music over the past forty years has covered a current, amazing artist. It’s kind of an act of appreciation, and I think whether or not Gabriel did it justice is less important than the fact that he actually covered it. Instead of, you know, a Taylor Swift song.
Oh I liked your example, I just wanted to make a crack at Urban Outfitters, because in my opinion it is the antitheses of the DIY, thrifting counter culture whatever movement they’re trying to copy. I think that’s why everyone gets uppity when the lemmings that like typical top 40 music start listening to albums like Contra, because eventually it seems like the commercialism waters down and bastardizes what was once unique and thoughtful art form.
I waitress at one of those corporate, lame restaurants (think Office Space) and for the most part the music they play is so terrible I think I might be in purgatory, but they also play MGMT, Cat Power, Phoenix and today I heard Sufjan Stevens. It just doesn’t happen often enough to make up for that “Steal My Sunshine” late 90s bullshit.
Listening to My Girls sounds like the only way to shop, but I think the kids are shopping at Urban Outfitters these days, which is also interesting because I think they might play AC as part of their “hip, unique, funky” manufactured vibe.
