BUMPED, MOTHERFUCKERS.


How has Carried Away not become everyone's favorite good-time jam?

This album is infectious. Love it. So many of these tracks could be singles. A

There are a lot of great great tunes on this one, but I still can't get over Cry Like A Ghost.

I don't know what album you guys have been listening to, but Mirrored Sea is definitely the best track.

After spinning this like two dozen times at work and having it constantly on in my wife's car since we carpool, I've gotta agree with laz. But holy shit, the whole thing is so solid.

Man, now I'm depressed after reading that Pitchfork article.

Dude is seriously messed up. But bravo to him for using the joy of pop as a catharsis, or at least an expression of his troubles.

I haven't read any of it. I'm too afraid that it will make it all just too depressing. That doesn't mean I don't feel for him, I just get too sad even thinking about reading it.

I gotta say, that was my favorite part of the ten minutes I was able to see of them at Lolla. He was smiling and really seemed to be having a good time.

to this, but was anyone else a little put off by the whole "I've got Michael's number and we text each other all the time" thing from the writer? I suppose it's genuine but he really didn't need to inject himself into it.

This is like the new journalism. The Cat Power interview was even worse.

And then you have that notorious Fiona Apple interview which just set the bar so high for journalistic narcissism.

I would be so embarrassed if people knew how often I talked to the people I cover. I don't want the readers to know my connection to the subjects of the stories.

Clearly you don't like two women getting naked massages together?

But yeah, the Pitchfork interview was really dark and somehow affected me on a very personal level, knowing people that went through some deep depressions (not as bad as him, though). I admire the guy for being so open about it, as people are generally utterly uneducated about mental health issues. I love the new album, but because of the interview it never strikes me as something joyful as Manners.

That Pitchfork piece positively influenced the way I listen to and appreciate the music. Could you ask more from a music article? Furthermore, the author did an excellent job of only passively including himself in the piece.

The Fiona Apple piece was occasionally illuminating, but the author failed at separating himself from the subject. There was no objectivity, and it was distracting.

I think it positively influenced a lot of people, me included. I could just have done without the texting bit. "I didn't hear back from him..." would have sufficed.

Oh man I couldn't even get through that piece. It felt really creepy.

Any time an interviewer gets all BFF-y in an article, I'm immediately turned off. Having said that, the Pitchfork article revealed so much, not just on Angelakos but also on myself reflecting back on what I was reading. I've never done anything as bold as what I read, but I've certainly been down those same dark paths, if perhaps not quite as dark. It truly influenced my perception of the album tremendously, not least of all because I read it as I listened to it the first time. I don't think it's essential reading - if you already enjoy the album, you don't need it. But for most anyone else, it's an uncommon public reveal on bipolar disorder and other forms of depression that will no doubt hit hard on just about anyone who reads it. Texting bit or not, it's the first piece of music journalism to majorly affect me in a long time.
