The Queens Is Dead is absolutely gorgeous. Heaps better than their self-titled debut. The production on that album really bothers me. The drums are so louds and reverbed, especially the snare drum,...

Good point.

It's certainly true, though. And The Dodos are a perfect example.

A four-step-guide on how to become Pitchfork darlings:

1. Be "experimental", but don't contribute with anything new.
2. Have a "cute singer", with an "adorable voice."
3. Be as quirky as possible....

Clouds Taste Metallic is awesome. Just sayin'. Reminds me a bit of early Modest Mouse, except without Isaac Brocks' annoying voclas.

Indie kids and hipsters are two seperate things, though, aren't they? At least from what I've gathered, but I might just be wrong and seriously misinformed. Hipster isn't really a widely used term...

And how someone possibly could "highjack" a band is beyond me. The idea itself is just ridiculously absurd. I mean, I used to think like that when I was an angsty 14 year old who wanted...

Can someone recommend me a more stripped down Waits album? Not his theatrical stuff, not his jazzy stuff. I'm more kind of looking for a folky album of his? If he's got any, that is.

What? He was (and is, maybe) a friend of theirs and was their bassist for like, one band practice or something. It's not like he contributed to their sound or anything.
