Also Nebraska box set when? We had archival releases for Born to Run in 2005, Darkness in 2010, and The River in 2015. Don't stop now, Bruce!
Oh hell yeah the 90s goatee is back baby
I mean, I don't like Grohl either, but I think "5th drummer in a brilliant band" undersells his contributions to Nirvana a *little* bit.
Lol, I was thinking "damn, this version of Forgotten Eyes is so nice and sludgy", and then the song ends with Adrienne saying "that was so slow, eh!"
If there's any plausible deniability to be had by Van himself, it kinda evaporates once you wade into the YouTube comments section packed full of Neo-Nazis straight up saying "he's talking about the Jews and he's right" and dropping Hitler quotes. Bad stuff!
He should sue the English language for the fact that there are only a handful of rhyming options for "America"
I’m just glad to see that someone other than me still remembers and appreciates The Mae Shi
I thought maybe this was the same meditation app that put out a 30-minute song by Moses Sumney earlier this year, but that's apparently a *different* meditation app called Calm! It's bad enough that we have Spotify/Amazon/Apple Music exclusive releases, now you're telling me I gotta start *another* 7-day trial that I'll forget to cancel just to be able to hear another artist I like farting around with synth pads?
Maaan they're easily in my personal top 3 of all time but I have to say on an objective level it's a tossup as to whether they're even the best band from Minnesota
Classic Low cover formula - draw it out, slow it down, and let those voices do their thing. Perfect song choice for them too, I feel like any single line could already be believable as a lyric from a Low song. Good to know they can still execute this style with potency after the dense vortex of noise that was Double Negative.
Not excited to hear Taylor in a Vernon project either, but i,i is v. good

Oh no I didn't know this :((( I realize it's a real flip of the coin with anyone who has roots in the 90s/00s Christian rock scene but it still sucks every time I come across one that turned out shitty. At least Josh Scogin seems cool.
It's actually been frustratingly difficult to obtain legit copies in the US for a reasonable price. Even for these 2021 reissues there's yet to be a place to buy them that doesn't involve international shipping. The MBV site doesn't even let you check out if you have a US address.
I was going to make a comment that I'm a big fan of this column becoming a more regular thing, but then I clicked to the archives to see that it's been at least bimonthly for the last year! Anyway, big fan of this column, anything that serves as a pretense to ask artists about obscure collaborations they did in like 2004 is good music journalism in my book.
But these are actual Nike shoes, they’ve just been customized by this streetwear company. So they’re kind of like a conversion van company, or that company that sold custom-painted iPods, which seems to me like a legally above board practice
Yeah :/ For whatever reason the past year has dredged up dirt on a ton of creeps in the Twin Cities scene, including a bunch of Rhymesayers & Doomtree affiliates and a DJ at the NPR station. In the last week there has been a number of allegations against Har Mar Superstar, stretching across basically his entire career, although word on that has mostly just spread through locals on social media. Here's a link on P.O.S: https://www.brooklynvegan.com/p-o-s-shares-apology-following-abuse-allegations-is-stepping-away-from-music/
Agreed. I mean it's fine if you never liked the guy's music, but it's pretty low stakes to say so once he's been outed as a *rapist*. As for hanging onto the Albums Of The Canceled: I've hung onto my Ryan Adams and Brand New records for a long time because those albums meant a lot to me and I thought maybe eventually I'd be able to hear them with fresh ears, but every time I look at them I just kind of grimace. But last summer when stuff came to light about the rapper P.O.S (who at one point I'd have considered a top 5 personal favorite artist), I just loaded all his stuff in a box and took whatever the record store gave me for it, and I can't say I miss them, so I'll probably do the same for the others when I have the time. Obviously everyone's different, but I feel like I'd probably need a good decade's worth of separation and/or *some* kind of acknowledgement and honest expression of contrition/reparations to victims (which literally almost none of these men seem capable of! Barf!) to be able to listen to one of these artists without that gnawing feeling.
I generally don't care for performative "I'm not surprised" reactions when vaguely creepy/cantankerous men are outed as predators/abusers, but this dude has a proud history of publicly crossing lines into harassment and outright misogyny, it really is not surprising that it apparently extended to his private life. Not to mention his music post-Benji has reflected ever-heightening levels of self-absorption and narcissism, which shines through in the (horrifying) accounts on Pfork. Sorry bro, it's time to reap!
