I love festivals that just say fuck it, here are a few death metal bands for the lulz
It's too bad Sasquatch can't be so bold. We only get heavy bands if they're Pitchfork approved, or maybe local. I'd still love to see a more extreme local band like Agalloch, YOB, or Wolves In The Throne Room slipped in the mix. Those bands are legendary among underground metal fans everywhere.
Yeah, I'm kind of with Drew. Tickets would be half the price and you'd get a stellar live band. With The Knife you're paying to hear their stuff blasted loudly over nice speakers (not necessarily a bad thing!). I can see either choice being fine.
It's so abrasively appealing. From that opening vocal, I knew they had their hooks in me but I didn't realize until recently how deep.
I just finished listening to Mess and I can't believe that this is the same band that released They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top. That album is the only one that I have ever listened to or owned by Liars. It's worlds apart, but in a good way. Looking forward to their set.
Oddly, Mess is the most they've sounded like They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top in years.
Well sure, I just think the way the NFL handles it is significantly more unfair. It's stupid you're having to wait a couple weeks to get it back but at least it will come eventually. The NFL would just keep it.
It's bullshit but this is just how the game is played these days. Couple years back we found a listing for Sasquatch on Foster the People's website and we had absolutely no idea who they were. Somehow they'd booked a slot at Sasquatch despite having like one song to their name. I couldn't tell you exactly what gets exchanged but I'm sure the label comes to Snacks and makes it clear to him that it's in his best interest to book this band because the label is going to force their music onto every single Clear Channel radio station in the country.
It's a two way street.
Oh yeah, pretty much everyone benefits here. I just hate it because it is one of the few remaining ways that major labels control music but that's a conversation for a different day.
