Sounds like 311
If u can’t pull off a decent show with a quick setup and line check then u need to make way for the countless bands who can. Don’t u dare think for a second u are punk rock.
SXSW is a cluster fuck, duh. Figure out how to make the most of it or don’t go and keep your mouth shut. You are embarrassing yourself.
why did you reference the flaming lips and not this http://stereogum.com/11220/new_deerhoof_single_is_sheet_music/news/
please no japandroids, i can’t stand those lyrics
downvotes mean they don’t agree with what you said get over it
someone please ban this michael piece of shit from being such a boring fuck
Fuck! again i thought this was going to be an extensive commentary on the album. stop thinking you are so important!
WHOA! These comments are truly ridiculous. Dudes acting like its a big deal to get to write a recap on Stereogum. “Stealing my thunder…. I was asked to headline” This is embarrassing.
djfreshie trust me that no one cares you play a live drum machine instead of a drum machine on an ipod. either way you’re not playing, you are missing the point here.
girls who put rock and roll ahead of looking cute
and damn they are cute
Seeing FRIENDS live really disappointed me. That little girl sure looked cute playing that big bass, too bad she couldnt make anyone dance with it.
Don’t hate a man for being creative and having some fun. Of course this isn’t going to be a good song, get over it.
get over it
thought the editing was fine
for real! if you are asked to cover such an influential album and you have never heard the material, pleeeease pass it on to someone else. there isn’t a shortage of awesome musicians who love that album
Signed Sealed Delivered! really no one else heard it?
theres so many comments hear I don’t even wanna know what people are bitching about. solid cover album, good mix of sticking with the original (is this it) and doing something totally different (new york city cops)
if either of those are too extreme to one side for you then please for the sake of this world stick to bulletin boards and never pick up an instrument
in 4 years no one will have a clue who the fuck washed out is. it is of the moment. don’t think it has much depth. maybe diplo doesnt have much depth either, but his shit is much more original.
the way you talk sucks
bands today are getting very good at masking terrible songs with hip sounds
yea that part really threw me. i was basically just watching this to see if they could pull off something more complex than their music. wish they made it more weezer sounding
the cheesy stuff is the stuff i find most interesting. but anyway the new album for the most part bores me too. i just have no interest in hearing a man with a pretty voice sing pretty things over delicate guitars. yes he did that on the first album, but he had memorable hooks. this album doesnt have that. this performance was definitely awkward but i liked it.
I can’t take ben gibbard seriously anymore, he looks and sings like a parody version of himself
if you are indifferent and feel they lack excitement just move on, dont feel the need to listen more because they are a “Band To Watch”
