old man rock
I can’t believe they didn’t invite Michael.
Auf Der Maur didn’t play on the album. She joined after Kristen Pfaff died of an overdose.
That’s a guy?
I stopped reading after the words:”living statue” mime. Does it get even grosser?
Now I’ll watch a Monistat commercial on YouTube, just to clean my brain.
I read the Stereogum Turntable interview where Ed discusses getting together to start recording the album after not seeing each other for 8 months. Most folks don’t take 8 month breaks every 2 years. Grizzly Bear doesn’t have a crazy touring schedule. I sympathize with them – while wishing I could take 8 month breaks, travel, record and write songs in Mexico. There are some perks. I’m sure having a house in NYC would be perkier. Is listening to their album on MOG acceptable if I only like it and don’t love it?
I think Sea Change became popular 5 years later, when the cover and some songs were included on every Mac in Apple stores. I’d love to see the SoundScan figures for sales-by-year. The initial release was met with disappointment but I think the appreciation has deservedly grown over the years.
I forgot about that band. Best Coast, not Nirvana.
I largely agree with this but find my own enjoyment of their current work fades with age – my age and their age. Does “twee” work when the band is middle aged?
The scene in the new Batman movie were 3,000 men are stuck in a cavernous sewer is also about Courthey’s vagina.
