Surprised you guys didn't link to that insane DJ Snake video.

I'm relieved you acknowledge that Feel It Break was underserved. I couldn't get how it missed a BNM nod. Definitely one of my favorite albums that year. Very excited for Olympia!

Nah, it was great. Reminded me of the first time I saw the "Bitter Sweet Symphony" video.

Sounds good. Hope they continue down this route and pick up where Electrelane left off.

During one of his performances, he was scanning the crowd and when he got to me I realized he wasn't just looking at everyone's faces but looking directly into their eyes. The expression on his face was hateful and penetrating. It was terrifying. I would definitely see him again.

Was John Paul Pitts' former girlfriend on ANTM or are you thinking of Elyse Sewell who was ANTM and former girlfriend of Marty Crandall of The Shins?

Metz killed every single time, even for the shows when you could tell they were over CMJ. Doldrums is great but your experience of that Public Assembly show was very different from mine. It was my least favorite set of the week. Also, Roomrunner was excellent and deserves mentioning.

I'm completely overwhelmed. Too much of what I want to see is happening simultaneously and this doesn't even go until all the great unofficial shows that are happening.

"Melody", "L'hotel particulier" and "Cargo Culte" share a similar melody that reoccurs throughout Histoire de Melody Nelson, but it seems appropriate to compare "Paper Tiger" to the middle track since it has the most brooding, ambiguous mood and the strings don't swell intensely as they do in "Cargo Culte".

I had a friend who was arrested in Texas not too long ago on a similar charge. It seems that most of the fights in Texas lady jail involved bashing each other with lunch trays.

Is this the first proper full-length AnCo release to not get p4k's BNM spot? Here Comes The Indian isn't noted as getting BNM but I seem to remember that album getting some special notation at the time (it came out pre-BNM, perhaps?). I get that p4k's fickle, but it's somewhat interesting if true.

This had been the best DIIV show I'd ever been to, so it's fun to relive it again. It's also weirdly exciting to see recognizable nooks and crannies of 285 Kent.

I feel like this isn't the first time I've seen Kay Nielsen's artwork used as album art recently. Either he has no living relatives or the rights to his work are dirt cheap.

I'm curious about this beef you seem to have with Jenn Pelly since I consider her to be a strong journalist, not just a strong music journalist. She seems like someone who could do real investigative reporting if she chose, which is refreshing considering that it's often difficult to tell whether those who report on music use the informal blogger voice because it's appropriate to the subject matter or because they wouldn't know AP style from their assholes.

The 1996 Olympics helped Atlanta become an international business hub, and the city became far more multi-cultural after that point. Whenever you speak with anyone who worked in any service industry in the city during that time, their eyes light up as they talk about the halcyon days of everyone having jobs and being showered with money. After the Olympics passed, new companies set up their headquarters there, which meant more jobs. I have a really hard time believing that the Olympics are this awful thing that's going to ruin cities. Considering that Atlanta was hardly prepared to take on the the sudden masses before they arrived, it seems like a city would have to be a complete fuckup to screw up such an opportunity.

Throughout the 90s I kept my Fleetwood Mac love a secret, since it definitely wasn't cool during the grunge days to be a fan. If I was ever caught listening to their music, I'd pass it off as nostalgia for my parents and the music they raised me on. I'm so relieved that people are getting excited about this music. Now I'm out and proud Fleetwood Mac fan!

My friends and I once did the thing where you play Dark Side of the Moon while watching The Wizard of Oz. We were creeped out and amazed by the coincidences. After the album ended, we kept the movie going and the CD changer switched to Sheryl Crow's "Run Baby Run" just as the scarecrow started running. Then we laughed until we got the munchies.

Wanted to make a snarky remark about this sounding too much like The Human Beinz, but more bands would have done right by taking after The Human Beinz.

I started listening to Harvey around the time that Rid of Me was released after I first heard "Man-Size". I've always had an odd love/fear relationship with her music. The honesty in her songs was so terrifying to me because I recognized the same vulnerabilities in myself. As a female fan, I always worried that I was confessing to too much by liking her music.
