8 comments in and no Linsanity references? What's going on people?!?!

hey 4:20:
white people = music
black people = moronic bragging and rhymes set to samples of white people's music

I didn't listen to the song, but let me guess: it sounds like a goat bleating?

hey 4:58:

black people: music
white people: copying black musicians
black people: sample white musicians who ripped off their culture

not crazy. just unfortunate.

Has that smoother sound like the whale EP...Reminds me of EC's Trust a little in terms of color and complexity...

Do the blacks like the Grimes?

Here's the black and white on this band: they blow chunks and I'm baffled as to why they get so much attention and press. I tried to give them a fair shake but their songs are so filled with nothing that I couldn't lend my ears to that shit any longer. Permanent ear plugs, please. I like sincerity in the music I listen to.

Posted by Sunskull | March 30, 2012 7:37 PM

One of the best bands out there period. Black or white or whatever. It's awesome music.

too many beautiful girls in this band. but it doesn't make up how horrible this song is...what happened?

black and white people should be able to hate this horrible band together.

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2012 2:33 AM

I like the brand .

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2012 8:05 AM

this sounds like tha roots

and the blonde girl looks constipated

not sure if im into the M3 to m3 in the melody... its whatever

If hating the Dirty Projectors is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2012 11:00 AM

sounds a lot like what longstreth was doing before really putting a band together; meandering melody that never really lands anywhere. the whole things kinda floats to nowhere, feels uninspired

and this comes from a huge fan, for the record

This is the prototype of what a hipster band is. If a marketing MBA was tasked to put together a band that appeals to the 20something hipster demographic, this is what he/she would come up with.

I read a real top notch Mojo article on Little Feat one or two years ago...It totally brought to mind this band in some ways...You know you don't see enough exceptional writing on music these days...I'd like to thank Mojo mag for being so good to me through the years and I hope the magazine continues to thrive...

Posted by Cassamssima-Ha-Ha | March 31, 2012 11:50 AM

All the members of this band come from very wealthy families.

Longstreth's dad is a CFO of a huge petroleum corporation
Baldwin's dad is a hedge fund bigwig
Ambers parents are corporate power lawyers in DC
Etc etc etc

The rich kids run this town. We only get to comment on it.

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2012 12:34 PM

It must be nice, 12:34.
I don't like this band, but there are other instances where rich hipster kids made great music/art. Beastie Boys and Moby are perfect examples of that. But this shit sucks.

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2012 2:13 PM

i remember when the band was touring canada and someone passed a tub of hummus to the driver and he flipped the van

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2012 3:02 PM

@ 12:34 you're a fucking liar. i know this band...

Dave's parents are nature conservationists and birders.

Amber's Dad is from a tiny little farm town in TX and now works for the EPA

Nat's dad is a gigging saxophone player, and so is Angel's Dad

Haley's Dad is a truck driver

Everyone's parents in this band are working class Americans. Fuck you and your stupid made up fucking lies

even if their parents are rich who cares? rich people, poor people.. all capable of making art and forging their own paths. this stupid argument shows up all the time on BV. the strokes were rich kids and their first two records are really good pop records. ian mackaye grew up in georgetown (one of the richest neighborhoods in dc).
