‘Are’ awesome. They’re a group of four people. It’s plural.

Why Americans put Oasis on such a pedestal I’ll never know. 2 good albums, then they were found out for what they really were. End of.

I never understand why someone with as bad a musical taste as Zane Lowe gets to premiere so many great songs.

Mac DeMarco seems like a funny guy and that’s a great video. Shame his music is so bland.

I really don’t think recognizing racist stereotypes makes someone racist. A fake red beard, green top hat and pot of gold under the arm may be explained as random mix but it’s not.

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.

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.

I’d give Ian Cohen’s early reviews a 9.1 but subsequent ones wouldn’t be higher than a 5.4.

My favourite Pavement album. Only just listened to it last Saturday working around my flat, so a very enjoyable read here. Good stuff.

Andy, You’re a Star is a better, more important Killers song than Smile Like You Mean It or Runaways or Sam’s Town or Bling, Confessions of a King???? Really? You’re going with that? You’ve thought about this?
