Find Me On:
I saw Wayne mingling at the Tobacco concert here in Norman a month or so ago. He was also at the Lightning Bolt show where the dudes gave him a private 20 minute show/soundcheck.
Also, I love how the most commented post is all about drugs. Get your minds out of the drug-gutter stereogumies.
At least they included Revolver, but what about Sgt. Pepper’s?! That album is more drenched in weed and lcd than probably anything else on this list.
Saw them last night. Fantastic shit
Yeasayer too. Both of them had great first albums, but their sophomore efforts underwhelmed.
Seriously, NME is crazy to not even include it. Easily my favorite album of the year.
Can Woodist do wrong? Seriously, i love just about everything i’ve heard from them.
Jonathan: I really don’t feel like making a video today.
Other members: Yeah, we’re just not feeling it.
Video Director: Too fucking bad. You’re making a video whether you like it or not.
The Drums: Fine, whatever.
Not really in to Mastodon (they’re just not my scene, man), but for some reason i was drawn to the guitarist’s head tattoo. I don’t think it looks that great, just really original. But that’s enough to get points in my book.
OMG OMG OMG! I get to see them Saturday at the Norman Music Festival!!!!!!!!!!
Having lived in Oklahoma all my life, i can say i am ashamed that
a) my state legislator is wasting time deciding on an official state rock song (although the song does rock), and
b) my state legislators are afraid of t-shirts.
Honestly though we already have Oklahoma!, why do we need more songs?
I enjoy Wes Anderson’s movies a lot, but i can’t say i have ever really paid that much attention to the music in them. I certainly never thought the music was taking away from the film. Mr. Oldham’s sweeping condemnation of almost all the music used in (mainstream, at least) movies seems a bit harsh but somewhere in there i guess he has a point:
“That?s all I ask for, that a little bit of time and respect is given to the musical part of filmmaking.”
I can support that
Somebody had a blast editing this video. I’m diggin the transparent blue drums, and the song was pretty decent too.
I guess it would be more proper to submit my request via email, but i’m not really sure who i would send it to. Anyways, if you do take requests, i would like to know whats going on with The Mars Volta. Is their new album really due out in June, as wikipedia suggests?
No thank you.
I’m not familiar with a lot of these albums (read: not indie enough), so i guess i should get to listening. I’m a bit confused by Milk Man by Deerhoof. That’s not the album i would have picked by them. The Runners Four or Apple O’ are better in my opinion.
I have a general rule I go by:
if its posted on stereogum, and they have beards, its probably worth a listen.
I know that’s probably not the best criteria to use to discover new music, but so far it has worked.
When are Patrick Wolf and Kevin Barnes going to team up? That would be some great music, not to mention one crazy-ass concert.
I’m diggin’ it.
I am kind of surprised by how adamantly Stereogum readers seem to be pro FLips
“You can’t allow other people to put a price on what you do…” because that’s the job of the record company who decides all the work that goes into an album is worth exactly $15.99
Personally, I’m not a big fan of U2 and have never listened to them much (I guess i was born to late). I wasn’t very impressed by the song, but for a performance on a late night talk show, it seemed very well done and Bono was pretty fun to watch. The best parts of the show last night, however, were definitely the parts where Letterman ripped into GW Bush.
Despite the fact that awards shows seem to tell me otherwise, I maintain that Fleet Foxes are the best.
Not that i dislike the video or anything, but can you really credit a director for it? Cinematographer maybe, but i really doubt if the two of them were doing much directing of the birds.
