Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

Big day for James Murphy fans on Thursday as Music Twitter was losing its edge shit over LCD Soundsystem reunion rumors. Billboard and CoS say this is happening; P4K, EW, and Rolling Stone say nah. It got heated! DFA is adamant there will be no festival shows unless Murphy is “being a real jerk.” I think the truth is somewhere in between — i.e., Murphy is weighing offers, as always, but nothing’s been signed. That’s my understanding, anyway! I’ve only heard “no comment” from official parties. So you be the blog: once you all vote in our poll we can throw our computers into the ocean.

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

I don’t know how I feel about seeing photos of the writers here. It’s an uncomfortable reminder that they’re people and should be treated as such or something.

What’s next? A Beach House/Wrens collaboration of Avalanches covers?

That dude at the Chvrches concert was a misguided fool.

I’m not going to pretend like I’ve spent the past twenty seconds reading this Chris DeVille post but I am also fairly certain a twenty second Chris DeVille post would be entertaining, provocative, and likely quite insightful. The music writer, new Dad, and 10k tweeter recently published this post on Stereogum, an indie rock but increasingly poptimist and occasionally blackgaze oriented music site. Within the first few words he declares “I’m not going to pretend like I’ve spent the past two hours watching this Kanye West interview”. Read about that and probably some other things, above.

tl;dr I’m avoiding work

Any guesses on what he brought to the potluck?

This is old news. At the show the next night there was a much bigger transgression. I tried to find the online video but was unable to do so. Luckily I have the transcript of the incident. This all occurred between “Clearest Blue” and “Gun” at their weds show.

Fan “Play Freebird!!!!!!”

Lauren “Why would you yell that? We don’t know that song. Why would you think we would know and/or play that song? That’s a staple of classic rock and we are a synth-pop band. Also, I’m a fully realized woman and I don’t take orders from anybody. Particularly not the likes of you. And furthermore….I would never have a caged bird. Any bird myself, or any of bandmates, crew, or production team would ever have would always be free to come and go as it pleases. If you had done your research you would know this about us”

Okay, ignoring my better judgement here I go…
A person yelling from the crowd ‘Marry Me!’. Isn’t that just fandom? annoying, sure, but typical fandom, something I would expect from both women and men, yelled at both women and men.
I’m honestly having a hard time seeing this as misogyny.
Again, not that he doesn’t deserve to get made fun of either way.

The article is designed for sensationalism. This one and the last on this same story. The headlines are about as click bait as your ever going to find.

Chilly Gonzales Shows How Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” Rips Off Feist

It’s funny and fair game to call an artist a rip-off and then when an artist defends himself he’s a dick. That’s the message I get from both. Zero journalism was used in any of these articles = Click bait in my eyes.

Yes i did set the account up to comment on the article, Is that not why most people set up an account so they can comment or were you born with an account?

I should of known better than entering into online debate. Opinions are like arseholes, everyone has got one.

This article is ridiculous click bait. Your whole reasoning just makes no sense whatsoever, first of all you run an article that says Hozier ripped off Feist. then criticize him for defending himself and say that there is enough artists suing each other. Why did you not take that stance after Chilly Gonzalez called him out publicly and say that artists shouldn’t be suing each other. Oh well i guess that doesn’t fall into the click bait narrative and wouldn’t of been sensationalist enough. So what i gather from this you feel it’s fair game for other artists to publicly call someone a rip-off and then if that person defends their position their in the wrong.

Please explain how better Hozier could of refuted the claims?? Do his own youtube video. The claims were very very weak from Chilly the only things similar were the progression of cords and that’s it. There was no grounds for a lawsuit and Chilly would of known this full well he was only stirring trouble for publicity.

I guess your damned if you do and your damned if you don’t.

Tom Breihan would you like to elaborate on why Chilly made a compelling argument??
