I remember people saying the same thing back when In Rainbows came out.

July 19, 2017 on Radiohead’s Controversial Israel Show Finally Happened, And It Was Their Longest Set In 11 Years
I'm in a band that did a couple Daytrotter sessions, and we've had nothing but good experiences with them. We're just a tiny little group, but they took interest in us, asked us about what the songs were about, and generally made us feel more important than we were/are. They could be a bit hard to communicate with online, though, with long stretches of ghosting, but honestly, they all seemed like great folks. Sucks this happens. I hate it when good people have beefs with other good people.

Well I think this is pretty hilarious and fun. "IOU" is a near perfect Tom Waits parody. Kind of weird why that's wedged in here, but I love it.

"I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" has filled me with many happy memories from my younger days.

Quality stuff. I hope he gets a bit more attention for his work this time around.

This makes me just as excited as a new Radiohead record would. Loved Familial.

It's different, but still a worthy and top notch addition to their catalog.

Maybe it's a bit old by music industry stand-points, but "I Couldn't Be Your Friend" by Tegan and Sara is a winner in my books. That and "Diane Young."

It still is good. It's a bit different, but still hilarious.

In terms of the buying merch and going to shows part, I'm with you. But, it should be said that you shouldn't confuse your enthusiasm for an artist by posting on blogs, tweeting, facebooking, telling friends, etc. with support for that artist by things you said you do like going to shows, buying merch there, etc. There is a clear distinction.

June 19, 2012 on David Lowery Blasts NPR Intern On File-Sharing
Rereading it in that light, I can see what you're saying, and I think he is actually saying something more like that. It seems to me he's just angry that people think some art is better than other art, where as he would just like everyone to appreciate all art equally.

Can we get a link to the interview he's referencing? What did Radiohead even say that was filled with "pomposity"?

Is the cover art going to be like those bumper stickers?

The song is alright as a whole, but yeah, that fuzzbass definitely makes it sound like a Ben Folds Five track and not just another Ben Folds track.

That looks awesome. Kind of reminds me of the Charlie Darwin video from the Low Anthem.

April 9, 2012 on Preview The Shins’ “The Rifle’s Spiral” Nintendo Video
Yes but we do not need another Sumday. I must admit that I so rarely love one album (SS) and hate another by the same band. Usually at least like SOME of their other output.....

They're good books, man. Quite different from Twilight, especially in that they're well written.

Guys, he's a person! Be kind, come on. It's original, you have to give him that.

February 2, 2012 on Band To Watch: Ryan Power
Very happy about this. BUT I am afraid that it will tarnish their original career a bit if it sucks. Folds' solo music hasn't exactly been stellar in the past decade.

The "Beth/Rest" piano version would be really great, but I doubt that'll happen.

January 11, 2012 on Bon Iver To Make SNL Debut; What Should They Play?
You should have written "Ryan Gosling (Dead Man's Bones)"! I don't understand why that project isn't more celebrated. It's so great!

I'm thinking that the key to enjoying this album will be to try not comparing it at all to For Emma. I remember seeing an interview with Justin where he said he wasn't worried about the follow up because he thinks albums should be contained and judged within themselves. I feel like no matter how good this album may be, comparing it to For Emma would just ruin the listen. I have too many attached memories to it for this one to overcome it, I think. But if I can just accept it as it is, I bet it'll be stellar.
