Find Me On:
Party and Bullshit is one of my favorites, though admittedly I’m not a huge biggie fan
I think New Year’s Eve is the most overlooked/forgotten Walkmen song
wow this perfectly describes everything i feared when i heard the first single….
Really surprised Kishi Bashi didn’t make this list.
One of my favorites of the year, and npr seemed to give his album a lot of attention when it came out
I disagree. I think Compton fits very well into the arching story line and at a very essential part of the album. If you listen to the skits it will make sense. I agree the song is only 4/5 quality, but considering the context boost I’d say its worth having it in. People who sat it sounds out of place are right, but completely missing the point kendrick wanted to show by including the song
For example, if it was recipe (which is a better song) was the last song it would take it down a rating or two. For the record I’m between frank ocean and Kendrick for number ine
The way I see it (and looking at the comments it seems a decent amount of people would agree) there are a few tiers of Radiohead albums.
1. OK Computer/ Kid A
2. Amnesiac/ In Rainbows
3. The Bends/ Hail to the Thief/ The King of Limbs
4. Pablo Honey
Some could argue for The Bends to be in the second level. Though if I’m going to listen to any of these besides Pablo Honey I’m happy.
Radiohead has released 8 studio albums. you guys got that part right
Just to add on a little to what youre saying. Its become so ridiculously easy to get your music on iTunes and Spotify (its actually a one time $40 fee to get it on just about every music site/store you can think of) that there is only time to listen to ‘the good stuff’. Whether that’s defined by this site, pitchfork, rolling stone, or your friends doesn’t matter- but you’re probably not gonna listen to the album that gets a 6 from pitchfork and spin unless friends are raving about it or you happen to come across it on Pandora. Of course there are plenty of albums that get bad reviews/non coverage but are still great listens, they’re just much much harder to track down.
At a recent concert he said its their last US tour for a while. Hopefully he just works on another side project and comes back to this one in a couple years. Man Im glad I shelled out to see them live. After losing the possibility of seeing Girls live this would be too much.
agreed, that was great
Hey, Gigantic, and Monkey Gone to Heaven . And sure Tame might be the best example of a good Pixies song, but that doesn’t make it the best song.
Wow music will never be the same. So revolutionary.
Didn’t M83 have an open audition for the bassist/back up guitar player? I’m pretty sure they hired them as an actual touring member though. The only complaint I have with this issue is that is it certainly near a grey zone of the industry. For example, say Radiohead or some other huge act offered to let a fan play trumpet or whatever onstage for a few dates of tour with them- basically getting a free/all expenses paid vacation and great experience. I doubt many people would get up in arms about that.
The problem is this lady actually thinks itd be a good idea for someone trying to further themselves in the music industry to do this, when the benefits would most likely be very minimal. If you take your career seriously you shouldn’t do stuff for free. Also its funny that she used to be associated with occupy and now shes exploiting for cheap labor
Pretty good, I liked it better than his MTV performance though the second half of Pyramids isn’t nearly as effective without the first
151a will easily be in my top 10 come the end of the year
Yes, that was a joke post. All these Billy Corgan headlines kinda read like HRO posts, with all his exaggerated nonsense and whatever. Seems billy corgan is just trying to keep himself in the headlines by saying dumb stuff about bands everyone likes. I still like their back catalog, but its hard to take the guy seriously between this and the Radiohead thing a couple weeks ago.
Yeah Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is definitely their best. Almost every song is a classic on that one
Steadyriot says Billy Corgan keeps saying stupid shit because his album effing tanked and people only like his old stuff.
Wow this is really good- though I’m probably one of the few people who think Strawberry Jam (and even Feels, though not by as much) is better than MPP
Seeing him tomorrow, pretty pumped
but the best part about the video was that it cut off early
Hm, didn’t see that- I think it must have to do with the band playing. I know for the Big D shows (2011) they said they worked out a deal with the venue and had extra staff to prevent most of the stage diving. Plus Gaslights not really a band to mosh to anyway.
I went to one of the Dropkick shows at HoB the week that article was published and there a shit load of moshing going on in that crowd. I guess the bigger venues can just pay the fine though. I really hope they stop enforcing that law- Middle East downstairs is by far the best venue for a punk show I’ve ever been to.
I might need to move somewhere where the PD doesn’t hate music. They shut down Odd Future almost everytime they’ve come here, but last time its cause there were actual fights going on. And last month they arrested a guitarist from Animals as Leaders for little to no reason (http://www.change.org/petitions/the-governor-of-ma-exonerate-javier-of-any-charges-from-the-boston-police-department)
I’ve seen a few fights at a M83 and Sleigh Bells show yet never seen even a bloody nose at a ska or punk show. (Metal is a different story)
Boston definitely doesn’t have a “anti-moshing” law. Even the venues that have those “no moshing allowed” signs like Middle East (which wouldn’t even be affected by Boston venue laws), Paradise, and BMH will allow it for punk/ska bands- though not sure if Gaslight fits into that category as much anymore. But stage diving is usually enforced pretty strictly aside from the Big D halloween shows.
That said Im pretty jealous- I overslept the day tix went on sale and missed out. I’m pretty sure a few sold for over 100 on stubhub which has to be some kind of record for the Middle East
