For the people reading this who loved Merge Records’ glory days. This band is from the UK and they got semi-incorrectly lumped into Leeds’ “new grunge” scene by the Guardian today. Parallels everywhere!

whatevernevermind: Wow, hate much, Maura? I said a while ago (wish I could find the tweet) that if I were going to pick one music blog to add to my rss feed, it would be artistpaid. I still stand by it. Show me another place that talks about the future of music more without the whining along with photos of Dylan, Bowie and, just this morning, the view from the Dow Jones Box at KOL last night....
dan77: the singer from band of horses used to deliver pizzas to my house, so i can't be too critical of them.
dan77: we're garlic knot bros
what is the point of artistspaid? because it seems more and more like it should be called ‘entitledfanboyspaidinfreemusic’ with each passing day. if all you’re going to do is aggregate a bunch of first-world-problem whining about how so-called “real fans” can’t get all the music they want without expending any effort, at least try and synthesize the information...

brokedownpalace: maura: I’m starting to feel kind of bad for Leah, even though I don’t like her very much, because Hosea seems like the type of smug dick who of COURSE would start a romance with an also-attached girl eight years younger only to back off when it was clear that she was interested in more than just pumping up his ego with eye-flutters and covert flirtations.

I am so old and so cranky but listening to this band made me think of long hours spent previewing faceless 7-inches in the basement studios of WNUR, and how trying to cut through so much of the distortion and half-formed songs hidden within their two-color sleeves was a slog in the immediate but the hope that maybe someday the bands involved would “graduate” to recording a full-length...

Postmaster General John E. Potter told a U.S. Senate subcommittee he wanted to eliminate the requirement to deliver mail six days a week to every address in America. If the recession continues to hammer at USPS revenue, six-day delivery may not be possible, Potter said. Federal law has mandated the six-day schedule since 1983. In fiscal 2008, total mail volume fell by more than 9 billion...
I LOVE IDOLATOR COMMENTERS SO MUCH →
In that same string, Kurt recorded a slowed-down, acoustic version of “Beat It”. The arrangement of the track was later copped by David Archuleta, propelling him to the American Idol crown, and making neo-grunge the trend of 2008 for America’s tweens. By 2012, Mormonism was the country’s dominant religion. Horrified, Kurt travelled back in time to 1994 and shot both...

All I’m going to say is that if you devote your life’s work to figuring out peoples’ behaviors for the purposes of fattening your own bottom line, you’re probably not as “generous” as you like to think you are. Signed, Totally Bitter, But Not As Selfish As Stupid Charts Would Make You Believe

Trinidad Punch 4 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters 1 oz simple syrup 1 oz lime or lemon juice 3 oz Trinidad rum Put 4 tablespoons finely cracked ice into a mixing glass and add ingredients in order listed above. Mix thoroughly, strain, and divide into 2 drinks. What is it about bitters? Anyway, this went well with the post-hockey-game glow.

Hey I wonder why everyone has such bad body image! Maybe it’s because we’re letting Mario Laundromatiera dictate WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT THE PLANET THESE DAYS?
- Billy Joel is not that bad, although he does have a lot of awful songs. There’s definitely a “diminishing returns” thing going on. (And I’m gonna pull some hometown rank and declare that my opinion on this counts more than anyone else’s from Long Island, save maybe people who graduated from my high school the year before I did.) - The word “hipster,”...
While John trusted Charlotte and grew close to her, Marlena found something off about her. John began remembering during sessions with Charlotte, but Charlotte tried to keep him from remembering anything after their sessions ended, and his son Brady(who had just returned to town) discovered this, and showed it to both Marlena and John. Charlotte actually held a grudge against Marlena because her...

sciencevsromance: End of an era. I probably haven’t watched this show more than once in the last decade, but it was an old summer standby that reached its peak when Marlena became possessed by the devil [youtube — classic for its mid-nineties morph and mirror chat where the devil tells her, “girlfriend, you are a mess”]. For a good read, set aside a half hour and please see John Black’s...
