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

April 16, 2015 on Watch Brand New Debut Another New Song “Sealed To Me” In Los Angeles
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.

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.

March 10, 2015 on 33 Musicians Discuss Their Favorite Radiohead Songs
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).

March 5, 2015 on Art Critics Hate Björk’s MoMa Retrospective
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.

February 19, 2015 on Sleater-Kinney – “A New Wave” Video (Feat. Bob’s Burgers)
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?

February 16, 2015 on Passion Pit – “Lifted Up (1985)”
I'm on my second listen. Really digging it. It's both similar and a departure from America. I just looked at his discography and realized I have listened to very little Dan Deacon, have to get on that once I play this one out.

Future Islands playing right before Sleater Kinney is going to be an amazing 1-2 punch. I always say I'm not going to Pitchfork and I always get sucked back in. Hopefully it's not 100 degrees this year. Or raining.

February 13, 2015 on Pitchfork Music Festival 2015 Lineup
Oh man, I really enjoyed this. Sounds like an evolution of Ceremonials. Loved that it was loud and pounding, when the guitar kicked in I jumped a little. I have no desire to go to Lolla, but if this lovely lady plays I might just have to suck it up and go.

I'm sure it'll some back around in a few years the same way rock has...and emo...and electronic...and hip hop.

The new Belle and Sebastian is definitely a return to form for them, I wish it was getting a bit more love.

Check the Rhime is the reason I got into them. Very grateful to the bar I was at for playing it. Great song, should be here.
