Find Me On:
My daughter says that all it takes to make me happy with a song is a few blippity bloops from the synthesizer but there aren’t enough blippity bloops in the world to make this song interesting. YAAAAAWWWWN.
I like this because it reminds me of some of the great country rock that I used to love in the 70s. It’s not quite brought into the present the way that someone like Yeasayer does with thier 80s throwback sound so I can see why some are hating on it. It’s always entertaining to read the comments.
This song started playing in my car this morning and for a split second thought I was listening to Fleetwood Mac. NOW I know why I like it so much.
Definitely a grower. Didn’t even think I wanted to download songs the first time I heard them but left them on my random play list and found they were sticking in my head. Started to feel like this was a noise that my ears had been craving but didn’t know it yet, ya know? I’m an old hippie and not a hipster, so my tastes probably lean more towards the ‘does it rock out?’ than the ‘how well is is crafted?’ category and I think it really rocks out in a smart way.
Holy crap! I was reading an article about Monsters of Folk (way overrated) and clicked on something that brought me here. I can’t believe this argument is still going on. Owl City didn’t rip anyone off but Ben Gibbard STOLE Sufjan Stevens’ voice!!! Stuff that in your pipes and smoke it.
Nice sound, but totally ripped off from Paul Simon’s ‘Rhythm of the Saints’.
It reaches the point where its not even about the band anymore and about principle, but yes, I do tend towards compulsive behavior sometimes. Gotta work on that.
“The people who like him also get chills when they peruse the top 10 songs on itunes.”
I generally dislike most of the top 10 songs on ITunes so there goes the integrity of that statement. Critique the song please and quit judging the people that like it. I’m sure that one or two of them might be intelligent. I say this knowing it will fall on deaf ears, so I’m going to go on to something more productive now. You kids have a good time and try to play nice.
OK. I have the time. Right now I’m liking Phoenix, Grizzly Bears, Julian Casablancas, Passion Pit, The Avett Bros, Freelance Whales, etc, Quick trip through the past, Rick Nelson, the Who, Jethro Tull, Roxy Music, and a bunch of stuff I just can’t remember off the top of my head. But enough of that, There is a lot of music out there that I hate too but I don’t feel qualified to post my assumptions about it anywhere. I just hate to see anyone get racked over the coals this way. I honestly do not see ‘more than similarity’ to The Postal Service here. So sue me and have a lovely day!
FYI, I don’t share the same religious beliefs as this artist. I was just pointing his beliefs out as another influence that might make his music unappealing to some people. I think that it would be very appropriate for the artist to get compensation but stop short of making accusations based on limited knowledge,
