Girls in Peacetime was a big disappointment for me after waiting years for a new album, so I'm hoping these EPs do the trick. The new song is ... ok?

October 10, 2017 on Q&A: Stuart Murdoch On Belle And Sebastian’s New EP Series And The State They Are In After 20 Years
Back at Jewish sleep-away summer camp in 2004, the original version of Kids was played outside all the time, and our official frisbee for the summer says FAMILY OF TREES on it. I have such nostalgia for that summer when I hear the song now, and I also have the benefit of knowing that I knew the song years before it actually became popular. Must have been a counselor or 2 from Wesleyan.

Was I the only one who always assumed Taylor's song was a riff off that? And that she may or may not have asked their permission to use it? This feels a few years too late...

If you want to include a song from the new album, I would definitely make it "Villains of Circumstance" if not "The Evil has Landed".

I really don't know what to make of AF's behavior/online presence as they roll out Everything Now. I'll give them this: They're going for it 100%. It really all just comes down to the music, though, so I guess we'll see what the record sounds like on Friday...

It's a movement that seeks to delegitimize/foil Israel and further divide Middle East relations in the fake veiling of Palestinian support instead of recognizing that everyone should be supporting dialogue and working together and that some people - re: a lot - of people want rights for everyone, not just Israelis.

"We’ve got this one band, Car Seat Headrest, they’re kind of cool." Methinks Steve Harwell does not read Stereogum too often.

Wow, just re-listened to it on the train before I even knew this was written/it was officially the 20th anniversary. I heard it with new ears. It was amazing. I just remember first hearing Karma Police as a 9-year old on the first NOW CD and I thought it was the most ridiculous/creepy-sounding "song" ever ... How far I've come.

Of course, I agree. And this is probably the silliest place to debate this, but still, Palestinian terror attacks and textbooks and parents teaching their kids revisionist history and to hate is something that happens largely on one side, and not on the other. Still, of course, it's not everyone or even a majority. But there is a difference.

June 5, 2017 on Roger Waters Responds To Thom Yorke’s Defense Of Radiohead’s Israel Concert
Even with an occupation, the point of the BDS movement is to harm Israel - aka - completely undermining the "dialogue" that Roger so desperately seems to want to have. And if "all human life is sacred," Palestinians wouldn't be indoctrinating their kids to become killers. (Some. Not all, of course. Nothing is black and white.) So why has he (and many others) completely disregarded the nuances to this situation, as Thom has recognized? Come on.

Listening to "Like a Stone" on a CD mix I made while playing the Gamecube in my basement. Oh, 2003. Love the emotion in that song, though. That and "I am the Highway" are my favorites.

Imagine if Roger Waters, Thurston Moore, etc. could come out and say anything at all against Palestinian terror and incitement. Are they concerned about that? It doesn't only work one way.

Well, equating what's going on there to apartheid sounds like they willfully want to hate Israel, but I definitely agree that Israel is not unblemished. Yes of course, I want Palestinians to have their voices and rights and everything, but it's such a complicated issue that the lengths to which they went in what they wrote in that letter is doing more harm than good. Also, I feel silly commenting about politics on a music site, but here we are. At least we all love Radiohead!

Really sad to see so much blind hatred towards Israel and artists playing there without really understanding what's going on. If anyone is claiming apartheid is happening in Israel, they are being swept away by propaganda. Hard to see some of my favorite musicians take this stance... :(

I'll admit that XO is my favorite Elliott Smith offering overall, but Either/Or was the one that got me into his world and shows that with bare instrumentation to go along with his soul, brilliance was possible. Love it.

Let's say you're with his whole sarcastic/political commentary shtick. And, I admit, his music generally sounds nice and he's got a pleasant voice ... I don't feel like the majority of his music has any replay value. I don't get the endless fascination with him.

In the end I was kinda disappointed with Why Are You OK? A few really good songs, but felt like it had a lot of filler. Dino was also solid, but it's going to be hard to recapture the glory of Farm.

Anybody notice the sign next to the little computer that says The Shins You'll be Dead March 7th 2056 - maybe the album will be out then in 2017? Shown at 2:42

October 20, 2016 on The Flaming Lips Announce New Album Oczy Mlody
Can't tell if the writer is making a sly reference or has no idea, but "the show must go on" is actually also a lyric form "Road Man," a song that is also on Astro Lounge alongside "All Star."

Giving shades of Lady Gaga on American Horror Story: Hotel. It's quite possibly their best song... but it's probably not. It's good, but I can think of several others of theirs that are better, and I only really know their singles.

This is the 4th song they've released... they put out "Solemn Oath" in the past week. Anywhoo, even without hearing this one yet (I'm at work), this album sounds like a big step up from the dregs of Mirage Rock.
