What kind of hipster utopian dust are these guys snorting these days? Although message is simple, yet interesting, and would have Ayn Rand nodding "I told you so", the mediums are so silly. It's like a PSA designed to get hipsters more involved in nature and less involved in themselves and the city. And if you don't think it attracts hipster types, just read the replay Ethan Kalmar writes to August Sanchez, if that isn't elitist and sarcastic - two identifiable hipster qualities - then I don't know what is.

I Think Lollapaloosa has Coachella Envy and Is Just As Confused About Music As Its Demographic.

I think some bands make songs to purposefully be mashed up with Art Of Noise.

It Was Said That A Young Man On A Laptop Would Come And He Would Take All The Coldness & Darkness and Individuality Out Of Dubstep. That He Would Deliver Warm Formulas For Making Wet Teenage-Panties And Even Do Remixes For Korn and Maybe Lady Gaga. The Legend Also Says That This Wubble-Clack Prophet Would Receive Accolades From The Grammy Committee And Save The Environment With An Album Released On Corn-Based Plastics. I Believe That Young Man Is Skrillex.

A lot of artists have adapted quite a few formulas from the Lady Gaga marketing handbook, but I don't think acting weird or doing unusual things makes an artist any less Pop. Sure, I was taken back by the Tyler the Creator Video and The Hype surrounding the album, just like Die Antwoord, too, but after listening a few times the gimmic-y-ness of the music and the interesting videos seem more or less as shallow as the lyrics. Sure, the eighties breed a similar "individualistic" "unique" aesthetic to pop music, but that music was actually fun, poignant, timeless and thoughtful. It just seems like after a lot of exposure to this new brand that it's very superficial and forgetful after the introductory awe has gone away.

"Swap-meet Sally"? I thought these lyrics sounded dated... I thought it was because they're so old.

Normally I'm very anti-cult, however, these sirens has a certain charm, albeit a very Coco-Rosie - al Rainbow Warriors (even the video for this track OMG has similarities). But I'm a boy who has a thing for girls who front bands, regardless of their obvious influences that trace back to a single source. Of course, the song is catchy, too.
