Trendy synth pop dominates the conversation as some of the most committed and consistent song-smiths (The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Mirah) are reduced to afterthought

The interview might be full of self-aggrandizing, delusional, farcical nonsense, but there is some good advice buried in there. I would take Coyne's recommendation to not be a Flaming Lips fan to heart.

Just a note, I've seen this in a few places and I think one of the tracklist items is misleading. The Daphni track, "Ye Ye," is not a new remix, it's from his album Jialong, and it's included here because it samples Onyeabor's "When the Going is Smooth and Good." Also, this Hot Chip cover is really good.

Surely the new Withered Hand and the Tony Molina reissue are as worthy of mention as the Walking Dead soundtrack ;) (If anyone is not familiar with the Tony Molina stuff, it is basically like freebasing Pinkerton.)

I guess I'll give you Magic and Midnight, although I don't think either song really pushes the band any further than what they've already done. The other two songs debuted at SXSW, though, are about as triumphant as the house band's revved up version of "Open the Arms of My Heart" at my cousin's calculatedly hip Baptist church service.

Do I "need" "high-quality audio" for on-the-go listening enough to throw $400 at a Wii controller? I would love to win one in a contest. Otherwise, I have to buy stuff to make spaghetti tonight.

That's pretty much how he performs every song. If you don't like the song, fine—but you have a problem with someone acting as if they actually care about the music they're presenting to the world? Also, compare this to The National's SNL performance over the weekend. I love The National. But Matt B's shouty aspect at the climax of Graceless was much, much more awkward. And if you would like me to get outside of my indie music bubble, I was pretty unfortunate to see Imagine Dragon's SNL drum-circle bro-off and, oh man, A Great Big World on Seth Meyers. There is your David Brent. That guy. Right there.

"The double standard, by the way, is that Jezebel is a feminist website who pounced on the chance to turn out a tabloid story about a musician cheating on their other when there are clearly many examples of female musicians out there doing just the same." how are getting upvoted for this garbage

I believe it Thurston Moore who responded to Jezebel. Pitchfork and Stereogum reported the original story from The Fly, and then later reported Moore's response about the Jezebel article. I don't even read Jezebel but I am aware of its vibe. And its masthead says "Celebrity, Sex, Fashion for Women. Without Airbrushing." So yes that is what it is. Mainly what I'm responding to here is the very boring rant about Jezebel being an outrageous tabloid. Yes we all knew that, OK move along.

Jezebel is a feminist tabloid. That is just what it is. I fail to see how it's surprising that a feminist tabloid would jump on a tabloid story about a famous and revered rock dude talking about his fling with a young woman with such a lack of self-awareness. And I don't think you read the Mish Way article very closely. She admits the cheating is a character flaw, and she is introspective about her selfishness and jealousy. Plus, the whole piece is about fetishes and cuckoldry. And, um, she wrote it. It's a personal essay. Did you expect Salon to add "Editor's note: We do not endorse the thoughts, feelings, and past actions of the author, who is a huge scumbag who we hate"? "as always, men are horrible, unfaithful dicks" — oh yeah I forgot men are so hard put in this world

Find the article where Thruston Moore is as self-aware of his flaws as Mish Way is in that piece and get back to us. I have no idea where you're seeing this double standard.

March 6, 2014 on Dum Dum Girls – “Are You Okay” Short Film (Written By Bret Easton Ellis)
I know I'm exaggerating, just trying to express the feeling that the performance instilled. It was very good. I saw them on their last tour and it's amazing the kind of energy they can produce even without a live drummer. You might also think that they have a limited aesthetic that would become less interesting over time, but it is exactly the opposite. Their music seems to be only growing richer and more powerful and evocative.

I hate to be hyperbolic...but is this the best band in the world? Seriously, I am very excited for these guys. Every achievement like this one feels intensely earned. When was the last time a late-night audience responded like that?
