The new Sleater-Kinney album isn't that bad, but I get why Janet quit over it.

Some fantastic songs on there, but it seems very Brownstein-heavy in terms of the vocals, when Tucker used to sing a vast majority of the tracks on every album. Not that Brownstein is bad, but I’m wondering how much writing Tucker was doing by comparison.

There’s a Pitchfork interview about the album today and I’m pretty sure Brownstein was quoted as answering like 7 of the 9 questions asked.

It’s more interesting than No Cities to Love, that’s for sure. Whether it’s better is another question.

Carrie has become the face of the band since Portlandia, so she likely feels the need to take charge in interviews as well.

I could have told you that you wouldn’t, bro. I don’t think I’ve ever made it through a Bon Iver album without either falling asleep. Yikes!

The previous album was James Blake cosplay with only a couple of well-written songs, but at least this one sounds more like classic Bon Iver. It's like the second and third albums spliced together.

He hasn't been able to put together a good batch of songs in a while, only fragments of interesting ideas. Go to the cabin in Wisconsin before spending hours and hours fucking around with the DAW.

Last time I was in a cabin in Wisconsin, I had country music forced on me and drank too many White Claws.

I'm late, but I just want to say that this:

And George didn’t deserve more than 2-3 tracks per Beatles album. He was considerably inferior and limited as a songwriter compared to John and Paul.
Is my favorite laz post ever.


That being said, I actually still haven't heard All Things Must Pass, but that's because George is my least favorite Beatle. :\

How can Ringo not be the unanimous and undisputed least favorite Beatle?

If I makes you feel any better, my girlfriend didn’t even know that Where The Streets Have No Name was a U2 song.

Ringo did more with a one-octave singing range than just about anyone in music history.

Ringo is funnier than George, so not really a surprise some would prefer him.

Ringo and Drake have that much in common.
