i think you guys (stereogum) post these things to read the ridiculous reader responses.
i mean, just read those shits. Imagine putting a cool anniversary post together that is comprised of the most ludicrous responses (something to do with penis, blows, indie rock conspiracy theories), the most repeated statement (probably something along the lines of ‘anco, veck, bitte orca, hype and downvote’,) and strings of fights over whether opinions are valid or bullshit (everyone knows opinions are bullshit.)
do that shit
pitchfork did hype him, but barely as much as a lot of other (less well known) sites–those things filter to pitchfork, and then they listen, and blah blah blah best new music. and it is good, fun, catchy garage pop.
stereogum should do a special on Wolf Eyes and see how people react. I’m guessing at least 300 comments on how it “isn’t music WTF cmon imean where are the proper scale progressions?????”
oho thank you stereobloggers, i have been waiting for heartland for quite awhile! too bad “before the end of the year” is kind of ambiguous.
this is incredibly good. GGD should probably remix the whole thing?
aw man, bonnie prince billy has more comments than an excellent deerhunter song. thats too bad.
really fucking good. a welcome shit from Random Spirit Lover, though also different from Shut Up I am Dreaming. i’m pretty excited for the inevitable leak
Shogun Kunitoki’s ’09 album is one of the best i’ve heard this year, hands down, no exaggeration. i propose a special on Fonal Records alone.
it also has the most enthralling album cover i’ve seen. I spent a week in the desert in palm tree groves trying to get some shots like it.
the keyboard and horns are the only redeemers. i agree with removing bono, or at least have his voice quiet, droning and lo-fi.
commence downvoting please.
