Two of my favourite Hold Steady songs are Weekenders and Party Pit. Great to see Atlantic City in here. Great version.
This whole performance comes across as a cringe-worthy piss take. The song is not even remotely as epic as Samuel T Herring acts like it is but people on an ‘indie-only’ diet may think so and be impressed.
I laughed the whole way through this and I will again many times. You all need to get out of your indie rock bubbles to see how cringe worthy and funny this actually is. The David Brent of TV musical performance.
THIS IS NOT NEWS
I listened to this for the first time this morning driving to work. Absolutely lost me shit 7 minutes in to The Instinct. Amazing.
Chromeo should definitely top this, that MO song is AWFUL and why oh why did Shakira have to oretend to rock out at the end of that video? My wank was ruined.
Ha! Although I love this album I can totally see where this guy is coming from.
I’d give Ian Cohen’s early reviews a 9.1 but subsequent ones wouldn’t be higher than a 5.4.
It always comes back to the P word doesn’t it?
