pretty wild that this Kanye record is the first record since, like, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot to really getting the indie sites to agree that the major labels sometimes make records better than we do

i like the kanye album alright but it'd be around my top 25-30 ranking or so -- no way #1

that arcade fire record = zzzzzzzzz

i would listen to the antony, robyn and beach house as i like other stuff by them but haven't yet. of what i have heard they are on a 0% average.

"we"? speak for yourself. indie sites and indie critics are firmly over THERE, far far far from where i locate myself.

I like the Arcade Fire record, but it's pointless to stan for it in the face of conflict. You either dig it or your don't, whatevs.

09 Wild Nothing – Gemini - havent heard, most likely zzzzz
08 Antony & The Johnsons – Swanlights - not a patch on I Am a Bird Now

06 Sleigh Bells – Treats - surprisingly decent
05 Robyn – Body Talk - top ten material, A+
04 Sufjan Stevens – The Age Of Adzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

quality criticism here

Me too, but that's faint praise. I'm by no means a big fan. xp

Lightning Is For Babies (Johnny Fever), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 17:17 (3 years ago) Permalink

i'm open to hearing it, i guess, the band name just sounds kinda snoozy

Is that what you meant? Do you think that Def Jam is an indie? What? Did those 30 days rob you of coherency?

well, w/ref to what you actually said originally, duhhh, of course they make better music than i do - i don't make music or work for any sort of record label.

They mixed up the track title and audio for the Andrea entry. The text refers to "You Still Got Me."

I'll never understand why modern indie ppl cosign Das Racist but go out of their way to distance themselves from Antipop Consortium and Themselves and shit

dr. harbl's zing-along blog (Whiney G. Weingarten), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:10 (3 years ago) Permalink

not that this has been a gr8 year for backpacky shit, save Gangrene, which no one is talking about except me it seems

you really are capt. save an anti pop consortium aren't you

gimme schefter (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:12 (3 years ago) Permalink

they're still great, what do you want from me

dr. harbl's zing-along blog (Whiney G. Weingarten), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:13 (3 years ago) Permalink

maybe it's because das racist are marketed specifically towards hipsters & ppl that read stereogum?

and have a novelty song

the scott pilgrims coming over on the hip-hop mayflower

dr. harbl's zing-along blog (Whiney G. Weingarten), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:15 (3 years ago) Permalink

why would you market towards ppl who have a novelty song

seems like a very small niche

BO (DJP), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:16 (3 years ago) Permalink

antipop consortium are fantastic, new record's great and they killed it when i saw em a year or two ago

...

There is a difference between "trolling" (the blatantly overstated and hyperbolic comment I made about SALEM and racism way upthread that everyone ignored) and "making a joke" (my last post) that you might want to investigate.

Yeah, but the second I admit to liking anything on anticon. people start accusing me of a being a PM Dawn fan.

I almost posted it on ILEpitaphs!

da croupier, Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:36 (3 years ago) Permalink

"laughing" or lol or something

But seriously folks, some albums if suddenly marketed to indie sites and reviewers/critics would get more acclaim, others might still get ignored (not enough genre specialist reviewers interested in stuff that's not hipster friendly)

curmudgeon, Wednesday, 8 December 2010 18:38 (3 years ago) Permalink

what's wrong w/ being a PM Dawn fan??

xxp
