things tend to just sound rubbish in tents idk? i'm kindof over festivals maybe.

℗⎣▲✘ (ico), Monday, 8 August 2011 15:11 (3 years ago) Permalink

also a one day festival with eight stages x twelve acts (or whatever) is not going to have the most engaged people doing sound - particularly if they either have to i. deal with another one-day festival with same the next day or ii. bugger off and get out of the way for whoever is

i wonder if there's any attempt made to maintain continuity in re: what kind of music tent x is, between underage and field day and the apple cart. (the latter has spoken-word and comedy and possibly cooking tents so is possibly an outlier)

field day made me feel bored with the idea of festivals, except when i ate things. though, to be honest, i could have just gone to venn st. market.

also one friend turned up with a girl not his girlfriend and another friend's girlfriend left with another guy, so all told it was an interesting day

@ Plaxico festivals can have great sound, just not in Victoria Park.

i got super bored about ten minutes into omar souleyman and left to go to a party instead.

fuck tents imo. worst way to enjoy live music. i find them unbearable - especially dance tents. what's the point if you're so squashed you can't dance?

(or Hyde Park, or whatever park it is they have Pitchfork).

after konono no 1 started empty and ended with a packed tent i made a bet that the opposite would happen with souleyman, and only hardened pseuds would remain. i lost

unrelatedly, i listened to john maus again today. i enjoy the first album a great deal, and would like to thank whiney g weingarten for bringing it to my attention

thomp, Monday, 8 August 2011 15:14 (3 years ago) Permalink

anyway like i said this was probably in part due to me being mid mood crash and chronically falling asleep at spontaneous moments but yeah i've generally found that at festivals the sound in open air stages is considerably better than in tents. tents tend to be super echoey.

Can anyone enlighten me on some of his lyrics? I mean the man talks in rambling curlicues during interviews and then his songs tend to have just a couple of lines about Jackie Chan flashing across the world. I know very little about critical theory...

When I meet other Ariel Pink fans, I feel like we understand each other, until I discover they also like John Maus, and then I wonder what it is they like about Ariel Pink, because the two are not even in the same ballpark.

Has anyone seen Exit Through the Gift Shop? I think of Ariel Pink as Banksy, and John Maus as Mr. Brainwash.

Now, if John Maus turns out to be an elaborate hoax, a Kaufmann-esque artistic statement created by Ariel Pink himself, then I would be the first to applaud both of them. I still wouldn't listen to John Maus' music, though...

PublicRadio, Thursday, 12 April 2012 21:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

Oh, okay.

Was it okay to like Maus when he was playing keyboards for Ariel?

Whatever scam they are running, it's getting both of them lots of alt pussy.

note: it is possible to like things that "are not even in the same ballpark." some people manage to like a great many different things. god knows why, but they do.

BEMORE SUPER FABBY (contenderizer), Thursday, 12 April 2012 22:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

also: my whole world's coming apart is a good song. not too concerned abt whether banksy or mr brainwash gets to claim credit.

BEMORE SUPER FABBY (contenderizer), Thursday, 12 April 2012 22:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

i think the poster is referring to "the ballpark of quality"

Yeah this is excellent. If he keeps this balance of clear but lo-fi his fingerprint will stay on the material. It's like a more sophisticated weathered sound. Well done.

The keyboardist and the drummer from Lilys are in the Haunted Grafitti now? Wow.

By the way I've been trying to get into John Maus for the last two days. Talk about a poor man's Ariel Pink. It's like he's trying to copy every aspect of Ariel Pink and just blowing it. That's got to be a bummer to shoot for crappy and fail.

I agree with contenderizer, though, that "My Whole World's Coming Apart" is a good song. I like "Navy Seals", too.

If you split the difference between Ariel Pink and John Maus, you get Part Time:
