who are These New Puritans? Should I have heard of them?
woah. after the tomboy/slow motion single and seeing panda live at pitchfork I had pretty much written off the new album completely. But these two songs… damn. the king is back.
friends don’t keep secrets from each other
This seems so bizarre, I mean year end lists makes sense, as does the whole “Bands To Watch” section (even if its just Stereogum basically taking a shot in the dark so if the band blows up they can take credit) but what the fuck is this? Most of these bands barely have an EP to their name, much less an album. You could have easily just made a mix tape with each of their best (or only) single and let us decide from there. But instead you’re actively hyping a bunch of bedroom projects that will most likely break up in 2011 due to their Macbook crashing. Go back to covering real bands.
Seriously, FUCK Best Coast. Her songs are bland, boring weed anthems that are just trying to capitalize on the already completely played out lofi beachwave bullshit her boyfriend helped create.
Also Cults should be #1.
jack white wishes he was still cool
I mean, they’re no Electric Six if that’s what you mean
@codyt3212 right right, gay bar and all that etc.
what I don’t get is why stereogum is mentioning a song thats been out for like a year now. Sure this was a standout track, ON THEIR DEBUT EP
Someone ran onto the stage during “Two States” to sing backup vocals, was that Thurston Moore?
Yeah, on the album her tone deaf singing is at least buried by the awesome sample, bringing it front and center like this live is just awful. Also if she had placed herself in the back of the clones or just didn’t have a spotlight clearly revealing herself maybe her message would have worked, but as it stands its just M.I.A. using people as ego-enhancing stage props.
