arcade fire have butlers. for sure.
from what i’ve read on other similar blog posts and in this thread it seems like getting your music in movies or tv is somewhat easy. is this true? who do i hit up to get my bands music considered for something like this?
Throw a party at your rehearsal space and charge people a buck or two to get in. Buy a bunch of PBR and sell them for a buck each (they’re like $7 bucks for a 12 pack). If anything just have fun while you’re essentially practicing your set in front of a bunch of drunk people, and if those drunk people have a good time at your show they’re more likely to come to your next show.
Interesting that some of the awesome “Stereogum Premiers” this year weren’t mentioned. I think my favorite record this year was Damian Jurado’s “Mariqopa” which was premiered here. Along with Putrifiers II by Thee Oh Sees, also featured.
Did anyone else listen to these albums and not just the premiered songs? Did Stereogum? Am i…. a loan?
Sad story… I heard this news when i signed onto Hulu Plus last night.
Dammit, now i’ve admitted to Hulu Plussing.
Lana Del Rey again? Chris Owens is pissed.
How did they not find a way to put the Strokes on here? Its NME.
I check “Shut Up, Dude” every week, and still never find out why Craig Ferguson is so mad at that laptop.
Thee Oh Sees – Putrifiers II
Damn. This is depressing.
but the singer plays a drum kit on a few of the songs. and sings at the same time.
I cant help but feel this comment thread would be totally different if Pitchfork and Stereogum had “discovered” Mumford & Sons a few years ago, and if we hadn’t heard their songs millions of times in every mall or grocery store we step foot in.
i dont get it
First time I heard Richard Swifts “Walking Without Effort/The Novelist” I was also confused at how something could sound so spiritual-y, and not sound like U2.
I thought this was a really great article, nonetheless. Alot of great ideas and comparisons.
“not so much about forcing dubstep drops where they don’t belong or partnering with VitaminWater”
(Meanwhile on the side of the screen: Bon Iver for Bushmills)
The kind of music we can expect in this Post-Sandy world.
I think its pretty obvious, for Stereogum at least, that even if the artist/band is “mainstream” or “indie”, if they feel like they made great albums they will get attention. In other words, no matter what the format, quality triumphs.
Yeah… The best part for me, though, is that no matter what the format, quality triumphs. Both albums are great, and their financial success will encourage more stuff like GKMC and Red flood the pipeline. You know what I mean? That just my opinion though.
