“It shouldn’t have taken George Floyd to die for them to realize that their name had a slave reference to it.”

This is how you nuke a five paragraph press release into oblivion in one sentence.

#tbt to a decade spent over-analyzing and obsessing over an artist who – in retrospect – was absolutely not worthy of all the ink spilled.

This was one of those records that really changed my entire relationship with music. I discovered it while maybe in 10th grade, after being really into their big singles from that period – “Float On”, “Dashboard” etc.- , and wanted to check out what else they had done. I liked the title of this album, and put it on one night and was totally just sucked into what felt like an alternate universe for the next 3 hours, as I listened to it thrice over. From that point on I, for better or worse, became an “album guy”, developing an entirely new-to-me approach to music, for which I’m eternally grateful, and which has been kept up for the better part of two decades.

I know a lot of folks ride for “Lonesome…” as their high water mark, and its hard to argue with that, but for me this will always be THE Modest Mouse album.

It’s as if they’re engaging in provocation for provocation’s sake. I wish there was some internet slang that described such activity, but the proper term eludes me.

Sincere, non-trollish question/statement: I don’t understand what he is talking about. I dont feel like the name makes light of drive-by shootings and I never even thought of the “drive-by” in the name as referencing drive-by shootings; I didnt think they were talking about semi drivers who are doing drive-by shootings. It was just sort of a non-sensical jumble of words to me.
I am 100% open to the idea that I am oblivious, missing the point, or too privileged/white to understand the issue.

“Lyrics first artist” is a great euphemism for, all her songs sound the same. All rappers are also “lyrics first artists”.

Love Tweedy, but libs going to lib. His take that the modern music industry is built on back of black art is correct, but he should add at the expense of white art.
