With all these fantastic shows going on tonight, one thing is for sure...
I am going to load up on the energy giving Phyto-Nutrients that are locked within the chickpea and do numerous rock and roll dance moves (such as the hip-thrust) all night long.

Julia Holter gives me such a woody every time I see her. It's gotten embarrassing for me at her shows.

Also, if really they managed to convey all that pile of pretentious artistry, they wouldn't have to explain it.

One of the best songs they have ever made and the video resembles a screensaver from the year 2000. Videos can take a song to a new level, this one does not unfortunately.
