Re: Isn't it time for message boards to make a comeback?

Tell you what: it’s a great time to be a cd fan. Indeed. I'm running vinyl now over cds at about 85/15 for purchases, but there becomes a point where it's just silly *not* to consider the cd version based on price point. A good example-and one that G5AM would appreciate-is Phish's Hampton Comes Ali...

I cannot believe you're preaching the virtues of a Discman. That's fucking awesome.

Re: GloNo Recs That Still Get Heavy Rotation

"Sky Blue Sky is a terrifically sweet album" Did I call it a turd, or something? So I recently read an article recently by Fuck Face McGee in Esquire about this very album and brought it out once again. It was chocked full of nice, "easy rockers." I listened to it all the way through! I'd forgotten ...

Re: Mooney Suzuki Sign to Columbia

OK so I just watched that video and, OMG, nearly every move, strut, behind the back solo and in-the-crowd shenanigans was a flashback of the show that I saw. You're right: twelve years later, that video would give noobs with a passing interest in rock music a desire to check out the Mooney. The Matr...

Re: Mooney Suzuki Sign to Columbia

I happened to see the MTV2's 'Advance Warning' spring tour, featuring all of these bands and wrote a write up for a zine called "The Taylor County Review." It lasted for one issue. It could be found in bulk in men's rooms of Subway restaurants around Southern Iowa. Good times. I liked nearly every b...

Re: GloNo Recs That Still Get Heavy Rotation

Do you guys dig Father John Misty? He's my latest obsession. I'm still on the fence for complete adoration but understand the appeal and praise. There are some really good songs on the new one ("When You're Smiling" and "Ideal Husband"), some that I can't stand ("True Affection") and some that I fe...

Re: GloNo Recs That Still Get Heavy Rotation

I still listen to Bennett era Wilco just felt the need to qualify this. It's the post YHF output that hasn't stood up on repeated listenings for me and I used to be a bit more tolerant of the band. I can't believe that Tweedy views his most recent work as anything comperable with that era of the ban...

Re: Do I need OU812 and F.U.C.K.?

Thing is, Diamond Dave has always been a crap shoot vocally on stage-even during the younger days. He's a ringleader, a hype man, the dude that's there with a light of your smoke and a tap for your keg. I've heard the pre-mix Tokyo Dome recordings and it's awful. While I have no interest in hearing ...

Re: GloNo Recs That Still Get Heavy Rotation

Nobody but nobody has been able to convince me that TV On The Radio is worth a shit. Ironically, many of the titles that people kept peeing their pants over around here are no longer in the rotation. I'm thinking of Wilco, New Pornographers, Sufjan, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, and-ironically-LCD Soundsys...
