I hear you 100%. One reason I loved when Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, and the Bay Area garage-punks were getting indie momentum was because it was injecting into the scene that brash, shit-kicker guitar music with scorching vocals and zero fucks given.

To be clear, I'm a very casual listener of metal, but I kinda feel ya Bloc. And as I'm pretty shitty at finding new metal on my own, I'm super appreciative of Michael's coverage (particularly this week when I've needed good a metal fix). But at the same time, I can't imagine going to a party in 2015 that would play Rhianna, Vampy Weeks, and YOB next to each other. Then again, whoever is hosting that party is someone I'd want to have a chat with.

That break seems very Lost in the Dream-y to me. No complaints on that front... although at first the drums threw me a bit.

Brian Wilson never listening to punk rock is so punk rock.

I had a friend in high school who had a CD with just "Diary of Jane" by Breaking Benjamin on it, and he kept it in the CD player of his car for about 4 months. I didn't say I liked it, but the situation is kinda close.

It's sorta similar, but I think it's the rhythm that really makes it seem like Losing My Religion. Which brings me to one gripe I've always had about Florence + the Machine, is that she writes good tunes but her band is sooooo meh. I'm convinced that if there were more interesting musicians in her band her music would be elevated. To me a lot of it sounds big and usually pretty catchy but kind of empty.

I hope the "forgotten machine" is the mouth harp. There is just NOT enough mouth harp in modern music.

It IS better, IMO. Dear Science did everything right that I wish they did on Seeds. But experimental? Maybe not...

I keep hearing "soon." I'm hoping before summer. By the way, saw him play on Wednesday. He and "the Way out Weather Band" were so on point, such a good show.

April 3, 2015 on Kurt Vile Talks More About All-Over-The-Place New Album
From the management desk of Kurt Vile: "the internet got a bit confused this morning and incorrectly reported the title of KV's new record. Its actually entitled 'The Record Is Not Called All Over The Place'. PS-that's a joke. No title yet. Soon!!!"

Anyone remember that George Michael cover of 'One More Try' I&W did for AV Club? That was awesome. They should record that.

April 2, 2015 on Iron & Wine And Ben Bridwell Announce Covers Album Sing Into My Mouth
Most of the time I'm all for creative solutions to problems, but other times punitive action is necessary. This is one of those times, and this goes far beyond this letter and a couple of cancelled concerts. It's not until the state of Indiana starts to lose money and has its economy impacted that it will be forced to change policy. Until then, it will simply remain as an "unpopular legislation" and everything will go on business as usual. If you happen to be friends with a bully, do you still hang out with him after he's punched your little brother and just hopes he changes? No, sometimes the bully needs to lose friends and be told he's a fucking asshole by the world to change.
