I love this.
Great song and video.
But the most important question on everyone’s minds is: Who is that beautiful dude with the nose diamonds?!
“We’re in the backwoods. Why aren’t you playing a banjo?” – Dave
“Dave, that’s inappropriate.” – Amber
“???” – Hillbilly Santa
The album is great, though far more intimate than perhaps was expected given the bombast of the concept, which may have worked against its initial reception in some places. It’s a good “alone in the dark with headphones” listen especially since there’s a whole lot of low end that’s missing if you’re not listening to it on a good speaker system or with headphones. (end unsolicited opinion) (hooray for Björk)
I found you very fast-forwardable. (Just kidding! Love you stranger!)
If I wanted to watch a video of two people hugging, it’d be this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kl1rRxG251s
Well that was beautiful. I may or may not have teared up a couple of times.
Based on stage banter, both Joanna Newsom and Annie Clark are extremely funny. This will be fun.
I agree with you on this point.
It’s out on Vagrant here in the States.
While there’s tons here I both agree and disagree with (the nature of lists and opinions etc), I am quite glad to see These New Puritans’ Hidden topping the list. I don’t think it’s gotten the attention it deserves, and hopefully more people will pick it up as a result.
I second that! Being Human is the best. Also, I feel that gif is like the antithesis of the James Franco pie gif. All of that said, I actually thought MGMT did well. While the songs aren’t necessarily my cup of tea, they demonstrated that they have the chops to pull it off. This performance actually made me appreciate the album a bit more.
Andy’s Tea Party (full disclosure: I’m in it) has a free Xmas single. It’s a cover of Mariah’s “All I Want for Xmas” and a remix of said cover by Mark Andrus Roberts of San Francisco.
This is beautiful. From what I’ve heard, this may be his best work yet.
