Re: “Lunchtime Poll: Is Outer Space the Best New Drone Metal Band?

My first reaction would be the likes of Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, Dome, Morton Feldman and other ambient, atmospherical producers, but you could've just played me the untampered recording, credit it to any of the above and i'd believe you. I'm afraid it'd make for little more than a spacey interlude or underlying layer for the quieter breaks in something as overpowering as doom metal or bombastic as dubstep.

I think an electronic/hip hop producer like Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing, Burial, Matmos or Actress would/could slice, meld and build these into some moody, beat driven jams better than anyone. Or even some spacey touches on an Erykah Badu or Bjork track

Re: “Spurgeon’s General Warning: Lazy Days

I prefer to think of him as the loyal, obedient and affable eunuch, "Reek"

Re: “Black Flag Vocalist Mike Vallely: The Cream Interview

I like his attitude. I haven't actually heard what he sounds like with the band, but he was one of my heros as a kid, and I clipped pieces of his artwork whenever it was published and stuck it on my wall. This definitely illustrates the downside of an email interview. Wish Matt was able to follow up some of those dodges with a more refined question and get some actual answers out of him. Then again, he's the new singer in a 35 year old band. Probably not much insight to be gleaned there.

I'm still on the fence about this show. Is anyone going?

Noisey's Bonnaroo coverage is nothing short of stellar. Perfect example:

maybe that's why the stage was so dark - the emperor was naked.

Welp, guess that derails my whole argument – or at least the least significant part of it.

Re: “Kanye West at Bonnaroo's What Stage, 6/13/14

That may be the first time anyone has ever used "humbled" to describe Yeezy.

and when was the last time Rolling Stone didn't like something?

I feel like there's a lot of projecting happening here. I wanted the show to be great as much as anyone. I even turned to the girls behind me bitching about how awful he and everything he does is to point out they'd been watching his set for 45 minutes. If it's so awful, why were they still there? If he sucks so badly, why'd they even show up?

'Ye has ingeniously used his haters to aggregate his own fame, so it was inevitable (even disregarding the '08 incident), a great deal of people came to heckle, hate-watch or just be there in the hopes of watching him bomb. He always seems to successfully turn the world against him just before dropping a new record that everyone hopes will flop, only to back up all his indignant bravado with a product you just can't fuck with. Had he taken a few notes from his boy Jay Z (who had Bonnaroo eating out of his fucking hand in 2010), he could have done just that. You catch more flies with honey than piss and vinegar. It seemed he was just too stubborn to be the bigger man, show a hint of humility, give the people what they want and send them home with few reasons to complain. Instead, he seems intent on proving his fame is contingent solely on his own talent and not the people who support it.
