“, but who is Joe Talbot to wag his finger and cast judgement on these people?””

Joe Talbot who used to be somebody that he now stands against in hopes that others don’t repeat his mistakes. He has seen how people feel when they are treated in certain ways and cannot stand for that any longer.

But mostly… Joe Talbot is somebody who calls our racism and misogyny and if you take a different stance to that… we have names for you.

The only time I hear about Fat White Family is when they’re trolling another band. Are they just an NME article generator?

This is a stunning album. I honestly didn’t think I would come back to loving this band. Yet here we are.

Why would you say you have a problem with a band telling you to be nice to immigrants? I mean, I know it’s because racism, but imagine posting that publicly and being like “am I out of touch? No, it’s [popular English rock band IDLES] who are wrong.”

I just arrived at the family cottage in southeastern ontario (PEC for those in the know), to escape the Covid resurgence with my newborn son and fiance.

It’s a balmy 6c/42f, i just lit a fire in the wood stove, and coffee in hand, I can’t think of anything better than a new Fleet Foxes album to soundtrack this moment in time.

Framing antiracism as a bourgeois idea, when it’s an absolutely essential part of working-class solidarity, is pretty fucking heinous. It’s fine if you think the band’s a bit on-the-nose or that Talbot isn’t exactly a great songwriter (hell, I’d be inclined to agree), but there’s only so many approaches you can take to denigrating their message before you start to sound a little suspect.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5  Blowpop
Score:-18 | Sep 19th

Poor Kulture? First of all you mean Rich Kulture and no I have to disagree she will not need therapy as long as her parents are good co-parents and not like the Kardashian situation where there’s Scott, Kourtney and Sophia now that there needs some therapy because those kids have got to be confused? they don’t know who their dad is with because one minute he’s going strong with Sophia and now supposably he’s back with Kourtney and the kids all along have gotten attached and like Sophia. So if you want to talk or throw therapy around that’s where therapy needs to be?

Does anyone else understand how a guy mostly preoccupied with darkness and apocalypse while also looking like Templeton from Charlotte’s Web gets to marry this woman? Does anything make sense anymore? Has 2020 finally just broken me?
