1. they both promote ridiculous products, Axl with Dr. Pepper and Julian with his Converse ads.
2. they are both nothing without their backing bands.
3. I don’t really care. I just like seeing the hipsters getting emotional about their indie bands.
JULIAN CASABLANCAS IS THE NEW AXL ROSE!!!!!!!!
WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE!
let’s face it, the strokes should never have been famous in the first place.
JULIAN CASABLANCAS IS THE NEW AXL ROSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
let’s see…your band debuts in 98 which makes all your fans 29 now. And you think they want to hear a solo album by your lead singer ten years later? what a joke.
how many soldiers died in iraq today so we could sit on our asses blogging about Michael Jackson?
i love beck but this is boring and pointless. and the bit about no rehearsing or planning? so everyone shows up and already knows all of the melodies and keys to the song and what instrument they play? give me a break. what about the reverb on his voice? that was sporadic? please. this is studio produced with trained musicians.
a girl with a guitar? why doesn’t she just staple a penis between her legs.
i’m glad he’s not tweeting anymore. twitter is a pointless waste of time to keep us distracted from the economic downturn. much like this website.
this band and this post deserve a keyboard cat mocking: http://playhimoffkeyboardcat.com/
i know what you mean. I wish I was Grizzly Bear. I’m sure their going to be really successful over the next ten years. They’re the next Nirvana. I mean c’mon guys. Let’s make them super famous. really we can do it. if I’m not listening to some skinny dudes that live in brooklyn then i’m not listening to music, that much i know. where would I even find music without pitchfork and stereogum? The radio? Please. All that’s on the radio is top 40 billiboard charting…wait a sec
this is embarrassing. good rap artists read to improve their lyrics. guess kw uses tv to grow his mind grapes.
is it really indie when it’s on billboard? we need to start talking sell out here guys. c’mon.
It’s funny you’re talking about hype. everyone featured on stereogum is just as hyped. And what’s wrong with 10 chords? How many should he know 20? 30? Hank Williams knew 6 chords. Leonard Cohen and Lou Reed know 5. So what. Chords have little to do with a completed song. There are only 12 notes…
uh yeah…like I said, why are they using WINDSCREENS INDOORS! I know what a pop filter is dbag thanks for the engineering lesson. Obviously they don’t…
why are they recording inside with microphone windscreens? AMATEURS!
all of you posting should stop posting and instead start a lofi band. It takes less effort than typing this sentence.
having lived in Oklahoma all my life, I’m ashamed that Wayne can’t sing.
how many false notes do you hear on the radio? it’s all pitch corrected. Live music is the same way. run the mic wire through the pitch corrector presto perfect pitch. It’s all fake. you have to go back before 1980 to hear a real vocal take.
lemme guess-you’re from Texas? Seceding soon, yes? good. take devendra and his jim morrison posturing with you.
sad. he used to be good. circa The Black Babies
nope. not going. never will
so bored with radiohead. everyone should move on.
if you paid money to see Paul McCartney or Morrissey I feel sorry for you.
if you live in NY shouldn’t you be worried about paying rent, not buying albums? Overpriced overpopulated cesspit
