I got into Prine a few years ago. I had mostly stuck to his early stuff. The song that has blown my mind recently is "Lake Marie". Bob Dylan called it one of his favorites. It's equal parts weird and moving.

Missed the red clay. Found a "blue ocean"variant here: https://fleetfoxes-shore.com/view/?id=18144&product_name=Shore%202xLP%20(Ocean%20Blue%20Swirl)

I'm hoping, before the year is over, that The War on Drugs follow his lead.

I, on the other hand, am listening in my grey, flourescent-lit cubicle. Sigh. The good news is, the music is just as good.

I'm really digging this somewhat-new trend of indie artists having tons of guests and collaborators on their albums. Obviously, the MVP collaborators on this one are Hamilton Leithauser's daughters.

I am often very guilty of recency bias, but I'm feeling like it's their best, too.

I love Crack Up, but I agree that this one is definitely more "accessible".

Four songs in and no "puzzles" so far. Gorgeous.

I was having a shitty day, but it makes me feel better to know I'm not at a point in my life where I feel the need to jump to the defense of rich, old rock stars.

Those two performances summoned that flood, no doubt.

My kids and I just watched Over the Garden Wall for like the third or fourth time all the way through. We love it so much.

I was at that Justin Vernon Music Now show that's linked to in the article. The set was mostly covers, but "Love More" was the song that made me go, "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS? I WANT MORE." and seek out Van Etten. Fun fact: Annie Clark was standing in the upper deck watching most of this set. Also, Colin Stetson was the opener, and talk about "WHAT THE FUCK?" moments (in a good way)!

My wife and I went on a snorkeling cruise on our honeymoon in Maui many years ago. When we got on the boat, "Into the Mystic" was playing. Ok, fine, good song. A few minutes later, we realized they were playing the song on repeat. It played on repeat the entire 3 or 4 hours we were on the boat. The scenery was beautiful, we saw dolphins and sea turtles and the snorkeling was so fun. But that trip ruined that song for me forever. Now Van is doing his best to ruin the rest of his songs for me.

Was there a question where the wording of the question is clearly structured so that a possible answer is something "dirty" like penis or boobs and then the contestant gave one of those answers and then Steve looked shocked and the audience lost their shit and then it WAS on the board?

He's going to have a lawsuit on his hands. He plagiarized all of those lyrics from my aunt's facebook posts.

I distinctly remember a friend of mine in high school arguing that bands like Nirvan and Pearl Jame were just a fad. His example of a band that would have staying power was Firehouse.

Plus (and, yes, it's sad that I know this), their fans already called them "Lady A" for short. So, the "A" has always been for Antebellum and still is, really.

Same here. I used to buy heavily into the idea that once a rock star got happy (or sober), they'd start going downhill artistically. I think that Darnielle has gotten more adventurous. Obviously, I don't know the guy personally, but he seems happy. He's one of the few artists who make me feel genuinely happy and happy for them by seeming so happy. Does that make sense?

Bobby Jean is on my shortlist for best songs ever. I saw him on the tour where he was doing The River in it's entirety. Of course, he did a bunch of other songs after they'd played the whole album. I was not expecting to hear Bobby Jean, and I'll be damned if he didn't close with it. I was so happy.
