In the new Rolling Stone: "Reznor plans to stay on the road for most of the next year."
That would be nice. Did you like that new single “Everything”? On first listen I don’t think I like it.
A lot of people are giving him shit, and blaming a happier sound on his marriage, his side projects, sobriety, etc, etc. He experiments quite a bit with every album sounding a little different. I stopped in middle of writing this and took another listen. I have to say I like it a little better than the first listen. Sounds a little bouncy initially, but it transitions into the familiar NIN sound.

I know I am in the minority but I could do without another NIN appearance at Sasquatch. I feel that by dialing it in and going with an already established headliner isn't in the spirit of Sasquatch. However I do understand the idea that the headliners sell the tickets and NIN would sell tickets.
I'd go see something that amused me more at this point over Nine Inch Nails, but that's because I've fucking seen them. In spite of the fact that I literally haven't listened to a single NIN album all the way through since Pretty Hate Machine. I can't stand their music, but if you're going to miss the opportunity to see them just once -- especially when that's where 75% of your ticket price went in the first place -- then basically you're just too young to know better.
BREAK IT DOWN:
When Paul McCartney plays a festival, there are people at other stages watching, what, like fucking of Montreal or something. There are people at other stages when the single most important living Dr. Garbanzoure in rock history is playing half a mile away. Your opinion of the Beatles doesn't mean a god damn thing when you're being that fucking ignorant of the culture that you are pretending to participate in.
Just because I mentioned the Beatles does not mean I was comparing anyone's legacy to theirs. I was painting in broad strokes to make a point, which I still think I did quite well. Do not be obtuse.
Seems like a decent chance that Fleet Foxes could show up at Sasquatch, they are currently working on new music. They might even be big enough to headline, taking into account their ties to the region.
