I think Left & Right in the Dark is pretty similar. They’re my two faves anyway.

December 30, 2009 on New Julian Casablancas Video – “11th Dimension”

This song and video signify the types of music I hate.

But I effing LOVE this song and video.

At least Monsters of Folk is there so I don’t feel alone in the world.

November 30, 2009 on Q’s 50 Best Albums Of 2009

Monsters of Folk will top my best of 2009 list. Guess I needed some safe rock n’ roll songwriting in these hard economic times.

I’m a Macca fan, but I think one writer (sorry, forgot where) said it best with something like “he looked like he was accepting an award between every song.” I cringe at his stage antics. Still, I’m mad that the AT&T live feed stopped after “Here Today”.

April 20, 2009 on Coachella 2009: Moz, Macca, Cohen Lead Friday’s Nostalgia Parade

I’ve never complained about the content decisions by Stereogum staff…until now. DMB WTF? I didn’t like them even before I got into indie rock. What next, a Creed reunion for the next post?

Jazz flute!

April 20, 2009 on Bon Iver Goes Back To School

What music journalist started the thing where they name the lead singer of the band, and follow that up with “& Co.” (e.g., Bono & Co.), and can I feed some toe jam?

Still love you anyway, stereogum.

February 21, 2009 on Premature Evaluation: U2 – No Line On The Horizon

That performance was bizarre. Didn’t Meg drop out of their last tour due to nerves or something? And then her big come back is playing guitar for the first time in front of TV audience?

And I agree with mitchell – that song doesn’t deserve the emotion Jack tries to give it. It’s a sweet song, not bittersweet. It’d need another verse for it to be bittersweet.

My favorite of the Japense “box cat” as you’ve dubbed him, is this one:

Wait for when he tries to get a drink of water. Cracks me up every time.

Oh, and thank you for not including Spaghetti Cat.

Maybe 2009 will be the year people finally get over the novelty mashup mp3.

Am I the only one here who actually listened to Dylan’s Tell Tale signs? Give it a shot — it’s better than the albums the songs come from.

I didn’t know Spinner was a blog now. I remember hearing my first Red House Painters song on their music player like 8 years ago.

Department of Eagles might end up being the most underrated album of the year.

November 27, 2008 on Uncut’s Top 50 & Mojo’s Top 50 of 2008

I looked forward to this because they agreed with me last year about The National. But this time they couldn’t have gotten in more wrong in my eyes. My God, Sh & Him is a step backwards in music, however cute and enjoyable it is to listen to.

November 27, 2008 on Paste’s Top 50 Of 2008

I am so obsessed with this album right now. I do prefer the record better than the live stuff I’ve heard though. That dude is doing what Brian Wilson fans want Brian Wilson to do, but even better. Love it.

October 15, 2008 on Department Of Eagles Make Their Live Debut On Conan

P.S. I saw Beck on this tour and it kinda sucked. I thought he played too much Guero and The Information songs, and not enough Modern Guilt (or New Pollution!!!).

October 15, 2008 on Beck Brings Letterman Modern Guilt

This song sounds like it could have been on Midlake’s “Trials of Van Occupanther”. Love it. Love this whole album — it’s what I’ve been waiting for without realizing it.

October 15, 2008 on New Department Of Eagles Live Video – “Herring Bone” (DUMBO Session)

Thanks for calling this out. I kept hearing this commercial but missing watching it. I had a totally different picture in my head. Like the end was at a boring Interpol show. Guess I wasn’t too far off since it’s still a boring commercial.
