It's a little early to say this, but we may forego festivals next year and drive to Alaska....
That's one of the dumbest statements I'v ever heard. I just went to Alaska (sort of, the little handle part) and while it was pretty cool, if I didn't get paid to drive there it would have been questionable if it was worth the drive. Missing Sasquatch for that is just insanity.
You should just go right after Sasquatch, it's only like a 3 day drive to the Yukon, tops. You can make both work.
It wouldn't just be for the sake of going to Alaska, although driving there is definitely appealing to me. I'd be visiting a very dear Quatcher friend who is about to spend the next year or so of her life travelling South America, and then immediately moving to Denali Park, AK for the summer.
We would definitely be going after Sasquatch takes place. It's more a money thing then a time thing. I want to make both work if possible, because I'm just not doing Coachella again next year, but there are also other things at work here.
There may be marriage and baby Foxes in the not so distant future (see next few years, nothing immediate)... and babies don't like Animal Collective... ya dig?
Oh and too late I guess, but my beginners order of listening to Built to Spill albums would go like this.
There's Nothing Wrong With Love Perfect From Now On
If you want more noizzze: Ultimate Alternative Wavers Keep It Like a Secret Ancient Melodies of the Future
If you want more pop: Keep It Like a Secret Ancient Melodies of the Future Ultimate Alternative Wavers
Then, ya know, You in Reverse and There Is No Enemy at your leisure.
OH OH OH, don't forget to listen Live, because, you know they're a great live band. Obviously.
And have we discussed Ultimate Alternative Wavers on this board yet? I love that album. It has some of my favorite BTS songs ("Three Years Ago Today", "Nowhere Nothin' Fuckup", etc.), but I don't ever hear it get talked about by anyone ever... except for myself to other people.
My BtS/The Knife listening party got cut off that night so I only made it most of the way through "Silent Shout". Not to worry though, all of that is cued up for today... after I listen to Veckatimest in prep for tomorrow night and take my laptop in for an overpriced repair.
