Find Me On:
They haven’t broken up yet?
For whatever reason, I kind of completely forgot about this band since their debut. I mean, I read this site a lot, and you guys have been reporting on it, but I just never really paid attention. After listening, I think I should have been paying attention.
this interview was a mess and i love it
good to see you too, pops
I’m pumped for record store day tomorrow. Gonna get me that Misfits/Lemonheads split single so fast. I seriously think RSD is one of my favorite holidays; it’s an adventure. I’m also getting the Place to Bury Strangers doing Dead Moon album, and I can’t wait.
Unrelated: does anyone have any tips on how to land moving ollies? I’m learning to skateboard, and can pretty much do stationary ones, but the moving ones always end in jumping off scared or falling and hurting myself. And it sucks. Any helpful hints?
so close to being in sync with the music
damn fine gif
ye, it was a simpler time
I’ve never heard of this guy before, or his previous two songs, so I’m confused and intrigued about all the excitement. Does someone want to explain this to me? With no context, I think it’s pretty good so far.
I like that at the end, you try and get a little bit of actual interviewyness into this really fun conversation. I didn’t even know there was a new Telekinesis album coming out, so this was very helpful!!
On the Foxygen/Authenticity article:
I’m almost always at odds with the “no good music nowadays” argument. There is simply too much out there to say that the majority of this generation’s indie rock is tired and derivative. To me, it kind of feels like a lazy stance to take. If you don’t like what you’re hearing, jump into Spotify, Youtube, Bandcamp, or friends’ recommendations and find some stuff that you do like.
Agreed, that’s one of my favorite things here. It’s good for lazy people.
that is so great.
too… much…. morrissey…
This is the best first single I could have hoped for, because it’s so weird and amazing. I’m pumped.
what is happening here
RubJohn is my hero
WAS is awesome, I was being serious. Brain Thrust Mastery is a classic, and Safety Fun and Learning is my holy grail of music collecting.
Okay so it’s not free, and that’s just false advertizing.
“Bee $55 for a one day pass”, more like.
Tokyo Police Club and We Are Scientists? For free? I’ma party like it’s 2006
Okay now that I’ve heard it, I’m really underwhelmed. The mix sounds really compressed, flat, and crowded, but that might just be the radio rip or youtube video quality. The song itself is definitely Phoenix, but I didn’t find it especially catchy or fun. It’s like Michael_ said, Phoenix trying to be Passion Pit, without the heavy lyrics or really good hooks.
I hope the rest of the album has less synth and more guitar/bass/drums clarity, and is a little nicer about having some dynamic range.
This beef sucks.
I really, really like this art style. I haven’t yet listened to the song though, because Atoms for Peace.
