I don’t understand the why people cover “Heroes”. It is such an incredible song and I have never heard anyone do a cover that is interesting or noteworthy in anyway If anything pay homage to the song. like “All I Want”
yep…defifnitely the xx
As much as I want to hate on these dudes…and the National, I just can’t. I know that I would be acting the same way if I was fucked up like that. Instead of rolling my eyes throwing shade on them, I am going to give them a thumbs up, so in the future if I am a wreck somewhere being overly emotional to music I enjoy, someone will do the same for me. Pay it Forward.
The problem I have with this lineup is that I have seen, or will see most of theses bands (besides the headliners, and in some cases the headliners as well) in small or club venues. It seems that most of these acts actually work better in small clubs and aren’t going to translate into a festival lineup well. I understand the larger headliners work, but for the most part I would rather see these bands in a club with less than 100 people.
Hey Amrit, its Pittsburgh…..it matters to us Yinzers.
“They build it up just to burn it back down”
The irony here is nearly too much to handle…
Wheres K$sh?!!?! Just kidding. I think The Drums should be on here. I just really thought that was a fun album.
After listening to this a couple of times, what I am left with is how ambitious this album is. If Night Ripper and Feed the Animals were exhausting in the sheer number of songs sampled, then All Day without a doubt killed me in its staggering breath of musical mashing overload. The album is over an hour long. College kids are going to be wasted on 4 Loko before they even get to the best parts. It is almost ….ALMOST… too much. Too much music, too mashing, too much nostalgia, too much data, and too much partying. I need a nap after listening to this. I bought tickets to both nights in Pittsburgh for Girl Talk’s homecoming at the grand opening of the amphitheater next to Hienz field. I would lying if I said I am not a little worried about what this album “played” live will do to me.
The green shirt kid in the front row really just made my day. Also, I would be inclined to like these videos so much much more if the teacher/ conductor/ piano player didn’t look like he smelled like Patchouli and prefers sitting indian style.
All I ever hear with this song is Crystalized in the Sky. Team 9 Forever!
BTW, there is a “We used to Wait” cover by The Drums floating around. Anyone know if it is legit?
I love this whole album.
The New Moon soundtrack was great. Everyone should go to PItchfork’s facebook page and follow the shit storm in the comments to their post on this . People are basically fist fighting in the comments trying to decide if they are allowed to like these bands anymore. LOL! Its like the Boxxy war on 4 chan.
I really like Tan Lines. They could have FAILED so hard, but it works.
This is actually the first time I think MIA has said anything that actually makes sense. (I am I doing this right?)
“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery-celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from-it’s where you take them to.”
ugh… why associate wealth and skin color to happiness and life crisis. I have read comments like this before and it just comes off young and arrogant. If you are in your mid forties white and upper middle class, you are not allowed to be spiritually lost? I am sure there are rich minorities, poor minorities, and young minorities, that go through similar things in life. Socio- Economic success has very little to do with feeling content. With that said, I think the movie does look like an eye roll and Ben Stiller FAIL.
Fonsworth Bentley? Isn’t he the guy who holds P.Diddy’s umbrella? I hate everything.
No does this explain IamwhoIam?
They also don’t have any sort of reference point to truly appreciate the music either.
