a girl invited me to this bands show a few weeks ago. i declined cos i never have heard of them. probably never will

After listening to it, I texted my All Songs Considered co-host Robin Hilton the following: "good lord this Typhoon album is brilliant ... haven't cried listening to a record since [Sufjan Stevens'] Carrie And Lowell."

this is... not great.

there's probably no one who will sound exactly like pavement ever which is saying something. it's 2018. they are an actual great rock band

now i'm going to listen to the pre-distressed bray of Unwound all morn and have a blast, i'm very to each their own about this stuff now and can't imagine ragging on music for an entire thread (the discursive and delirious unboxing of a phenom, like in the hoot thread, is different)

This is about right. But we here at Hipinion pride ourselves on judging everything and everyone and that ain't ever gonna stop. Also the hoot thread makes me feel far worse than this thread.


I'm sorry you don't like the hoot thread antoine, i just feel like it's one of those ones that brings out the best in everybody
