Comments from pickpocket

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

You guys are right, I shouldn't be surprised by this dumb garbage content

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.

why deny ourselves the pleasure of seeing a bass player who wears his own band t-shirt?

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.)

Kevin Drew was already too gross. This is way over the top.

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.

sampling rates can be higher than what a CD allows, many analog recordings are made at higher sampling rates

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.
