I loved TTs, even the quirkiness when a loud band would be playing the Middle East downstairs as you're trying to listen to an acoustic band in TT's. It was part of the charm. I went a few times as an under-18 year-old with my sis, had to have big Xs on both my hands but they always let me into the 18+ shows. It was like a right of passage going when I was 21 and didn't have to deal with that anymore.

I think it's kind of obvious that I might need to own one of these. Also, they don't seem to be in the store yet. Can't wait to see how ridiculous the prices are.

I think it's less our generation and more gen-x/boomer marketers trying to latch onto what they think we like.

I was actually really hoping this was just a Bobby Darin cover.

Tom, are you a Cuse fan or just a basketball fan in general? Or did Jonny Flynn just come up in your google search?

I am so jealous of everyone that was there. That is without a doubt my favorite song of his. Someday I hope he comes to IL and just plays all of Illnois and the Avalanche. Preferably while I'm still living here.

I would be ok if they decided to pull a Beyonce and just drop the album randomly

I wasn't into Daisy either, except for a few songs, so this was a happy surprise. Agreed on being a snotty teenager driving around blasting Brand New (and TBS). When you're bored in suburbia and don't particularly care for drinking or drugs, you just drive around.

This should really be Bon Iver or Iron and Wine. One of my fav SNL skits: http://37.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lzndcxHOxB1qzado8o1_500.gif

April 13, 2015 on Spotify Says Ed Sheeran Puts More People To Sleep Than Any Other Artist
Since I missed last week's article, I'll just say that I love this and am extremely excited. Can't wait to hear it live.

I'm not sure this will ever be my favorite Sufjan album (that fluctuates between Illinois and Adz), but I've really been digging this. Woke up to snow this morning and as much as I hate the weather, it fits the album perfectly. I do wish he had varied his voice a little, the whisp-y works but I do love Sufjan's voice in all it's glory. Really any Sufjan is good in my book.

March 23, 2015 on Premature Evaluation: Sufjan Stevens Carrie & Lowell
There are still elements of Adz in this, though probably closer to "Futile Devices" than "Impossible Soul." They might be sparse songs, but I wouldn't call them simple by any means.

Well since Stereogum rarely covers or interviews bands from the 50s/60s/70s, I'd say they really don't have to start now.

They should've taken note from the V&A's Bowie exhibit, that thing was fantastic. I'm a little confused that you say that Bjork isn't a visual artist? She's primarily known for being a musician, but she's done a lot of video work and performance art. I'd say she is definitely a visual artist (unless your view of that is only so narrow as to encompass painters/photographers/sculptors).

You forgot to mention the tee-shirts! I still have my Brand New "Mics are for singing, not swinging" shirt. I bought it not knowing about the feud, but I guess TBS had a shirt as well. The funny thing with all this is Nolan/Lacey seemed to be buddies again afterwards. I think Nolan's other band toward with Brand New at some point? My high school (and college) love of Brand New was a little out of control.

THAT'S WHAT IT WAS. I took one look at the screenshot and new it reminded me of something. Love that album. I'm going to go listen to it now. And agreed, it looks so close to the album cover. A subtle homage maybe?

This isn't a particular change of pace and isn't really their best song, but I still just wanted to jump up and dance when I heard it. So there's that, I guess?
