That pic makes ol’ Biebs look like a youth pastor who’s been arrested for statutory

I honestly do not understand what the problem is. The site throws up literally dozens of quality topics every single week. And also chucks us some fun bait that allows the commentariat to be silly and have fun. Are you so super serious that a Biebs nonsense article is something you feel the need to scold the site? Poop on that. Poop, I say.

Seriously. Indie music websites turn way down their coverage of indie rock music for like 7 or 8 years, then 7 or 8 years later – “what’s up with indie rock? does anyone care?” That’s annoying.

Where does Grizzly Bear belong in 2017? – Right here. On anything that has a speaker that can play music.

What does Grizzly Bear sound like in 2017? – They sound as great as ever.

There, answered.

This would be a more defensible position if you weren’t constantly stanning for Blink-182.

Not a huge fan of the “what does it MEAN to be an indie rock act in 2017?” narrative for every indie rock act releasing an album in 2017. Y’all started repping artists working in other genres something fierce and act shocked that indie’s grasp on the culture is more tenuous now.

This is shaping up to be a monster based on the singles.

I will truly never understand the appeal of this shitty 5th-wave mall emo crap. That this band has fans among people whose opinions I otherwise value is so baffling to me.

The sad thing is that he’s ignored boundaries and been inappropriate with other women, but because of this woman no one will take those claims seriously.

I know. I’ve read it. Not saying that it’s being ignored, just saying it should have been the AOTW instead of a bleh premie. Ya’ll need to relax.
