I actually really liked arcade fire's album art. It was everything else that was really terrible about that album!

I would like to add that I'm a big grizzly bear fan, with shields probably being my favorite. Ive just seen a ton of articles pontificating on this topic, and thought I'd add my two cents

I think the main appeal of indie music was that it was fringe but also, often inspite of itself, impressively good. I think the question is less how/where do our favorite indie bands belong in 2017, as much as how do we feel that the music they're making is no longer vital. And I feel like this is true of even the newer bands as well. I love Waxahatchee and Pinegrove, but they're neither musically or lyrically as ambitious as Bright Eyes and Modest Mouse were over a decade ago. So yeah basically i think it is a question that is still worth asking. The culture has changed, the artists have changed, and how does that effect our experience.

nothing wrong with questioning testimonies, but when you have a history of only challenging the default popular positions on topics like this a pattern develops. Just something to consider next time you're defending a man you don't know who has a picture taken of him with his hand clearly in the buttcrack vicinity, with two witnesses of him doing this.

iTunes match solves basically all of these problems. Upload all of your music to the cloud as they are. They don't match them to the iTunes library the way apple music does. There might be a storage limit but it is incredibly high. I have access to literally all of my music on my phone.

I'm curious what those who have been around the indie block think of this band in comparison to bands like Bright Eyes or Modest Mouse. I'm not saying I don't enjoy Cardinal and Size of the Moon is an undeniable song, but I can't help but feel like it's been done better by artists who are largely no longer part of the conversation.

am I crazy that I think their new tracks sound a little boring? I know they're always growers, but when you compare them to 'two weeks' or 'yet again' they're way less immediate

You should listen to Nas Album Done off of Major Key. Thats a straight up amazing song. Lyrically Nas goes in when you know he didn't have to and its produced by Cool & Dre (even though Khaled is credited too.)

bruh if you want definitions of words you can google it. You've been trolling on pretty much any topic stereogum posts that you can possibly troll on. Someone needs to get this dude out of here before someone drops the 'lena dunham' bomb

I would also argue that she wasn't THAT ratchet. Especially when compared to literally every other popular male rapper right now

May 8, 2017 on Miley Cyrus Responds To Criticism Of Her “Hip-Hop Scene” Comments
I'm not super familiar with her music but other than possibly the song she made with Mike Will Made it and the whole Robin THicke thing, in what way did she represent those negative stereotypes? That album was mostly generic pop hits with popular sounds of the times, and talking about how she liked her boyfriends armpits smelled even though they were gross young and wild and free kind of comments. She always struck me as the IDGAF junior year art school student and made an album that anyone in that mindset would've loved to have made

April 26, 2017 on Waxahatchee Responds To Criticism About Joining Lena Dunham’s Lenny Tour
Or could you could say it was a mixture of both, and probably a couple of other things too. On the Lena Dunham hatred, it seems pretty obvious that americans from all ends of the spectrum still pretty much hate women, especially ones that aren't fit to ogle in a lingerie magazine.
