This is no surprise. Fred and Carrie Brownstein are BFF.

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

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.

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”.

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?

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.

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.
