When I saw the thumbnail on Zack's Twitter I thought the same thing!
What, was it not funny enough? Very curious about what the particulars of the Academy's "comedy album" criteria look like.
No thank you! I will simply imagine what it sounds like, shaking ever so slightly, rocking back and forth in my chair, for only another 15 days...
Can't agree with this more. I discovered the joy while working nights; if I woke up too "early", I'd catch an afternoon matinee and saw movies from all over the world that I probably never would have seen had I went with someone else. On the other hand, Simone I'd happily go to the theatre with you if you'd prefer not to be alone! "The Stereogum Comments Section Goes To The Movies"
Woah, I haven't come across Dijon since college! I love everything going on in the live take-- how organically the layers of sound build and mesh, rising and falling in intensity like a tide.
Warm and well-executed collection of songs. Really enjoy what Jordana brings to that (basically classic, at this point) TV Girl sound.
This album cover is so sick.
What, are you an Welsh post-punk band recording vocals or something?
Couple of favorite new releases that I haven't seen get mentioned around here too frequently: Shannon Lay's Geist is a beautifully textured folk album that was ready-made for autumn. Her layered harmonies and creative instrumental arrangements place her firmly in the Fleet Foxes canon of folk. Smoke Bellow's Open for Business is a really cool, psych-pop take on "post punk" stylings. Cindy's 1:2 is an expansion of the sound on Free Advice that's denser while somehow becoming dreamier. Would love to catch them live if they ever make it to Upstate NY. The new BADBADNOTGOOD is an excellent jazz record. Besides that, LVL UP's Return to Love , Parquet Courts Wide Awake! , Jessica Pratt, The Magnetic Fields, Fog Lake, and Adrianne Lenker have been heavy in my fall rotation. I've also been wandering around the neighborhood whispering "They putting towers up everywhere, 5G, High Speed" to myself since By The Time I Get To Phoenix came out. What's caught your ear lately?
I'm predicting the Eve6 guy is about to become even more insufferable on Twitter now.
Oh shoot, I completely bungled this. That's what I get for trying to host images while riding on the Taconic...

Glad to hear you're back on the road. How have the people at different venues been about keeping you and the rest of the touring crew safe? I feel like I've heard only about venues requiring vax/masks(in my neck of the woods at least) and I'm curious if that's just exposure bias.
I'll give roland credit for liking Big Thief, but that's about it.
I think the time has come to shut my ears to new Big Thief. As the long wait for their double album begins, so does the Howse. I'm still gonna play "Little Things" constantly though because I just cannot get enough of that song.
I knew those buildings looked familiar! I wonder when the video was shot, there's a fairly good chance I was right around the corner or directly underneath there at the gym.
Oh I totally got you! I'm not sure why you're being downvoted, you're completely correct. I was agreeing with you in a slanted way. It's very funny to consider Grimes not reading such a short passage!
I'd believe you if you told me that's a Dan Bejar lyric from that song.
"Grimes staging photoshoots while holding politically-charged media in an outfit emulative of what they're wearing in the deserts of Arrakis that she takes to social media to explain and defend as as a private matter" is easily the best take of the weekend on the Internet!
Capitalism is exceptionally good at taking things from people forcibly and creating police states to ensure the protection of property and capital is upheld above the needs of human beings, so I'm not really sure what she's getting at. But until she's talking about classless and stateless societies that allocate resources efficiently and equitably to all peoples, I'm not interested in her checkout counter-level reading of the most basic tenants of a socialized, capitalist economic system. "Super wild, technocratic UBI systems" please, please make it stop.
