Another triumph of hype over substance. A lazy A&R person at Matador believed what he read on Stereogum instead of actually listening to the band. Remember when they were all the buzz at CMJ a couple of years back, and then everyone saw them and they sucked.

@11:04: seriously, without blogs like sterogum, matador would've never signed cat power, yo la tengo, guided by voices, pavement, blues explosion--shit, even chain gang. thanks for dropping the knowledge.

You guys are just fucking jealous.

Matador started because of Stereogum. Cosloy was sitting around in his dorm room with me one day and said "Someday there's going to be something called Stereogum on a thing called the World Wide Web and I'm going to read it so that I don't have to trust my own A&R decisions."

saw the 285 show recently. was awful. like their record though. was that just a bad night or are they always terrible live?

Poor Matador interns, having the combat the truth in stupid comment sections. Matador has been a good label for years, but this signing is a bad omen for the state of their A&R. Lazy, buzz-following signings tend to fail, especially when the band is just plain awful. You'd think Matador would have learned from the failed signings of jokers like Harlem, Delorean and Cold Cave.

Iceage were great at LPR, fell apart at 285. hit-or-miss live band. New Brigade is one of the best guitar albums of the past few years.

@12:53: personally, i thought the iceage debut was a pretty solid effort. that harlem record is great. matador is probably in the black on cold cave on that radio shack commercial alone. delorean, okay you got me on that one, but if you're going to be technical about it, they are on true panther.

Actually, signing The Arsonists was the bad omen for their A&R.

all A&R from evrywhere were on some Iceage nutsack. great matador got them. They fkn destroyed at LPR, dudes even learned to tune their guitars and write even better riffs. prolly gonna be the best and most honest post punk record in 15 years.

who wouldn't flail at 285 on that post apocalyptic duct taped sound system bought out back of a truck at MTV SOUND on Manhattan, Ave.

AHEM... That sound system was purchased at a bunch of Bushwick dollar stores. I was on the Todd P rebranding team 2011. We have standards, bro.
