Comments from vibribbon

i knew Lena was divisive (to put it mildly) but holy shit at the comments on FB, you'd think she agreed to tour with Milo and Richard Spencer...

all 3 songs we've heard from this album are better than Back to the Shack, though

what's the deal with this band? came out of nowhere, no bona fides, debut on a major. slightly above average music paired with glowing headlines. real sus.

thanks for addressing the wackness of both "ryan IMPROVED this pop trash!" and "ryan RUINED this perfect pop masterpiece (also he's an old white dude)!"

Not bad but it sounds like it could have been on either of their last 2 albums. Was hoping for a bit of an evolution.

no kidding, it's fantastic. probably could've taken out that schmaltzy "Mother's Child" song and replaced it with this one.

Great list. Makes me sad that I moved to NYC right around the time this scene was evaporating but I suppose if I had been around for it I'd be pushing 40 now (yikes!).

she just tweeted that she scrapped the album 7 months ago. i was never under the impression that the other music she was working on was going to sound like Go anyhow. seems like it was made pretty clear that the song is an outlier as it was written for a popstar.

more curious about who wrote the song that plays over the end credits. i think the show is alright, overall. got picked up for a second season already.

son... At Mount Zoomer is the best WP album and Spoon's last album was kind of a snoozer.

indeed... he just seems more and more fickle about creating "pop" music nowadays. i feel like he kinda phoned it in on Together.

gonna assume that "Spidyr" is a "cover" of Dan's Swan Lake song of the same name. hope there are a few Dan originals besides that tho.

Same here. I think Toy Guns has the potential to be a big summertime hit (that chorus rhythm switch-up) if it were to be given a marketing push.

Can't believe I'm the first to even mention them... new TWIN SISTER album next year almost assuredly. I guess so many years between the first album and the second will kill the hype but they're still killing it IMO.

yes, it is right next door to the much-superior Glasslands. bummer when a place closes but honestly 285 wasn't all that great. it was nice that Ric put his personal phone number in their emails so you can text him during a summer show and ask to turn the fucking A/C on tho.

December 20, 2013 on Brooklyn’s 285 Kent Closes?
He's a bit of a trend opportunist but I'll admit that I was really into that first Lightspeed Champion album (though I'd probably find it unlistenable today).

I really like TPK, personally. Off the top of my head my main criticisms would be a.) the old dude's monologue is straight up dumb and much too frequent and b.) One for You, One for Me is like a less good version of Easy/Lucky/Free... I hope whatever the final BE album is goes out on a better note than that. "Southern State" is my fav sorta-obscure BE song.
