Want to thumbs this up for the last comment, sadly I doubt that will happen. “Safe music” will always be favored and in the spotlight. I personal like a lot of wussy pop music and typical indie shit, but a band like this makes a hell of bigger impression. People should check out like-minded bands like Broken Water, the Men, Sex Church, White Suns, The Intelligence, Eat Sugar (and the band Eat Sugar, The Intelligence and Pop all owe debt to, the might Brainiac).
Uhh, Making Drone and Noise music and avoiding hackneyed mainstream music. Did anyone hear The Priest They Called Him, and not expect him to turn into Scott Walker 2.0?
Jana Hunter <3
Oh, lookit. it’s not a mediocre “trendy” band being shoved down my throat, just a good old fashion barn burner.
Thank you for mentioning that song, Brainiac is amazing.
It’s nice to see a band isn’t afraid to take risks like this, great song/band.

New favorite band. This wipes the floor with Fucked Up. (and I like them)
California by Mr. Bungle anyone? I love it though, glad this guys have humor and a good pop-writing sensibility. Elevates them above the “serious” math rockers IMO
Thou chortles until his noggin falls off
As a Blood Brothers fan, you can not imagine how happy I was when I heard Morgan joined the band. Plus, the combination just seems bizarre. Looking forward to the new album anyway!
This band is incredible, I wouldn’t call them metal but oh well. Old Wounds was one of the best of 2008, so I’m very hyped up. To the dude above, I would rather compare them to Touch and Go bands of yesteryear than Qotsa (Killdozer, Hoover, and obviously the Jesus Lizard).
No related to the list. I love your name though, if the D-plan release something next year It will probably be top 5 material.
Also no Blonde Redhead, Past Lives, or Grinderman! NO FORGIVENESS STEROGUM (I still love you though :3).
I’m such a goddamn fanboy, but Halcyon Digest is so unbeatable and should really have the top spot. C’mon give Bradford his credit, or at least a higher spot than Sleigh Bells and Vampire Weekend (ugh). I’m not really a great follower of new music, but no Superchunk, Ted Leo, New Pornographers, No Age, Wolf Parade, Octopus Project, or Autolux? I know these bands aren’t the trendiest or most blog-able, but they all have released great albums this year and deserve a bit more attention than most “things” on here. *rant that makes me sound like a jaded old man over*. Glad to see Liars high up though, it’s no Drum’s Not Dead, but it’s a great album nevertheless.
I love how they start out decent (baring Paramore, of course) and get more shitty as they go by. Nickelback was a shocker to a degree. Another thing, what’s with Britain’s obsession with this fucking band? C’mon Natasha, you made “Glass”, you can surely do better than that.
Leave the adorable worthless collectibles to the Flaming Lips and Melvins. Besides I doubt any Wavves fans can score some decent weed, so all these things probably smell like Woody Harrelson.
* use it
I love this website, but hardly use. I’m a crappy person when it comes to new stuff out, I usually wait 3-5 months after something comes out to check it out. I couldn’t just forget about this though. I’ve played Future Perfect god knows how many times. Thanks Stereogum. I had thought my favorite guys (and girl) fell off the face of the earth. :(
I love how every story on Vampire Weekend or Joanna Newsom gets 20+ comments, but this greatness gets three. People suck.
Reminds me of this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM0XrLGEGis
Usually digging everything T&S, not feeling this though. :(
By “Peacebone” you mean “Fireworks”, right?
I HEARD HE DABBLED INTO WITCHCRAFT, I HEARD OCCULT
OH, THEY’RE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME
