@andy_james: As someone who personally oversees dozens of posts about “good indie rock without the bullshit drama” every day, this is a really insulting assessment of what we do. Quality new music is not something you have to look hard to find here; it’s the majority of what we do and the backbone of the site.

Feels kind of harsh to me for Tom to say Kendrick is “in his cave” like we haven’t heard from him in years. He just put out a masterpiece last year, and even blessed us with a very good album of leftover songs just 3 months ago.

Same feeling all her nude scenes give me.

Art should obey no color line. Insisting that it should is fucked.

Someone I’m tired of hearing from, giving her opinion on someone I’m tired of hearing about. Hooray!

How many inches of positivity do you need to feel safe again? I can spare some.

I would say that 75% of the commenters of this post need to seriously suck my dick with passion and an amount of gluttony that can somehow wash away from my mind their enormous ignorance. Bitches.

Please. “ghettoizing and demeaning our creations, then stealing them, gentrifying our genius, then trying us on like costumes before discarding our bodies like rinds of strange fruit.”…this is exactly what JT’s career is built on! This is why he’s getting backlash on Twitter. What is difficult to comprehend?

Noel Gallagher has to be in the running for the most unpleasant musician ever.

I can’t believe the fascinating questions like ““What are you writing with?” didn’t intrigue him! Haha JK Ed is the worst member of Radiohead; Kayne probably didn’t know who he was talking to.
