Boring cover, but the album will likely be one of my favorites of the year when it drops.

"The classic formula didn't produce another pop smash, but Move Like This abounds with the weird energy that powered the Cars’ time as the goofiest-looking motherfuckers in pop." Ah yes, The Cars truly stood out as being goofier looking than that guy who wore the eye patch in Dead Or Alive. And Boy George. And, oh I don't know, everyone in DEVO.

This calls to mind the time when Weird Al parodied Diddy with "It's All About the Pentiums." Waiting for Drew Carey to jump on stage and assume the role of Jay Z's hype man.

So... you just dodge IKEA furniture the whole time? Do the walls at least bleed on you if you win?

Holding rappers accountable for the things they say in their songs... what an interesting premise...

I still find her annoying but at least now she's using her powers for good instead of evil.

Any rock song from the 70's beats anything on the radio in 2015.

Morrissey AND Death Grips? On the same day? I've always wondered what TWO empty stages would look like at a festival...

I don't totally disagree with all these old musicians coming out of the woodwork complaining about the current state of the music biz (or lack thereof). It truly sucks that it's harder to make money as a musician now. Of course, on the flip side, it's now much easier to get your music out there. Like with everything, there are pros and cons to consider. But the thing is, these old guys who keep complaining about Spotify and these TIDAL dummies who are deluded into thinking they're going to reign in all the music pirates and make people pay the artists are truly out of touch. There's not going to be a prohibition on streaming music. Pandora's box is open and I don't see it closing anytime soon. P.S. Is the commenting in italics a new thing around these parts? It makes me feel like everything I'm saying is sarcastic.

Nobody wants CDs anymore because you can get mp3s anywhere now. Once you rip the music off of a CD, what do you have? A beer coaster. Tapes ARE cheaper to make, smaller (which makes them easier to buy and sell at gigs), and bring back the nostalgic notion of listening to an album all the way through without skipping tracks. I think people are becoming more attracted to the analog formats now that we're living in such a *~DiGiTAL WORLD~*

Just a heads up to broke LA folk who want to see them play next week but don't have the 70 bucks Live Nation is currently charging for a ticket: hit up stubhub or other second tier ticketing websites. I found a ticket for 20 bucks and there were many others still available.

And to make matters worse, tickets for the shows are out-of-control expensive. I wanted to catch the one at Hollywood Bowl and drunkenly hang out in the nosebleeds with some friends, but even up there in the woods seats are like $50 a pop. Count me out.
