" they dazzled with Bikini Kill covers but some raucous but playful new material" <-- I think that's a mistake. It should be "...they dazzled with Bikini Kill covers and some raucous but playful new material."

August 5, 2013 on The Julie Ruin – “Ha Ha Ha”
I just spent all day yesterday slogging through their released tracks up to this point and even watched their set at Glastonbury. I am still baffled at the buzz they're getting.

This comment sucks. It's like chiding movie producers for wanting to sell DVDs: "Wanna make more money from Pacific Rim? Fair enough, take it to Broadway!" To insinuate that artists don't deserve to make money off of albums is asinine. Albums are arguably the most valuable form of media that we consume, and yet, people seem to undervalue them the most. I use Spotify as a necessary evil, but I still purchase a ton of music and try to find other ways to support artists. I hope you do too.

Ugh, this album was one of the biggest disappointments of 2013.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. - If you didn't see me (then you weren't on the dance floor) The only song worthy of putting up a fight against 'Get Lucky.'

It would've recalled "Local Business" too much if they had just left it like that.

It was kind of amazing to hit up their facebook page after this aired and see a lot of people declaring themselves new fans. It kind of makes you wonder how well they could've done with wider exposure.

Left disappointed when I found out that he didn't cover Whitney Houston WHILE breaking up a fight.

Are you just not a Shins fan? This is very par for the course with Mercer & Co. If you don't like this song, you probably won't like the rest of their stuff.

February 6, 2012 on The Shins – “September”
Sounds a lot like Cursive. Doesn't really sound like there is any experimentation happening here. And that is a good thing. It sounds soooo good. The last album was really disappointing. I am now less cautiously optimistic about this one and more just optimistic.

February 2, 2012 on Cursive – “Wowowow” (Stereogum Premiere)
Wow The Lion's Roar was so incredibly boring to me, and that kind of music is actually right up my alley. This album, however, completes me. I wanted John's solo album to be stronger, but including the three songs from the EP makes it feel a bit incomplete.

January 26, 2012 on The Top 20 Steve Albini-Recorded Albums
Yeah I saw them open for Peter, Bjorn, and John on the "Living Thing" tour and it did absolutely nothing for me. I really think this album sounds noticeably different than the first though, so that might be why. I am pleasantly surprised by this. I'm really enjoying it.

I can't even figure out how you could be a huge fan. A huge fan of what? Two songs?

Exactly. It isn't indie either. There are no excuses to be made. She's terrible.
