I liked them until I saw the poem on their album cover. Ugh. For such a preachy band, though, their marketing sure is slick. "Shut Up" looks like a Bon Jovi video.

I dug the song and the performance but it really got squashed by the mix. Wish bands were allowed to bring their own sound guys to TV performances.

There's some great stuff on this lineup but of the top 3 the only one I care about is Paul, and most of the bands I like on the undercard are not best suited to 40-minute sets in the daytime.

I'd never listened to their previous work, but that song Inhaler is really dope, so they certainly have my attention.

I can't say I'm familiar with Ms. Thorn beyond her Massive Attack guest spots, but I will say that T. Cole definitely does the best interviews.

I liked Wavves' guest appearance more than Kid Cudi's, and I don't even like Wavves.

Oh man. I go to school in Williamsburg, VA and this band has played our tiny little DIY space several times over the past couple years. Just about made my day to see them on Stereogum!

I don't agree with a lot of what's on this list, but I'm glad to finally see one that doesn't have fucking Grimes on it.

Yeah, I think this is a really important point - for an indie band, your odds of becoming Nirvana are much lower than they were twenty years ago but on the other hand, the odds of making it as far as Grizzly Bear might be much greater.

Thom's sick of it, the other band members have to talk him into playing that song from time to time IIRC.
