dude, i know, like theres nothing worse after 3 days of straight partying and walking around and standing in the dust and sun than some fucking hype boy telling you to jump. JUST PLAY THE HALF DECENT SONG WITH THE GIRL FROM DIRTY PROJECTORS SO WE CAN SLEEP.
It got pretty damn cold that night and he told people to take off their shirts and throw them in the air... And most people did. I'll admit it was cool to witness but I saw lots of miserably cold people on the walk back who clearly never recovered their shirts.

Holy shit, Monday is staaaacked. Hope there's not too many conflicts. So hyped that Caribou and Four Tet are on the same day, really hoping they collaborate. I think there's a fairly good chance, even though Squatch doesn't typically facilitate that, because they've toured together a bunch and are BFFs.
EDIT: fuck, I want to see 7 of the top 8 on Monday. No way to avoid at least a couple overlaps there. Woof.
Also, I haven't logged on since HG and Stormy returned. I just wanted to say THANK YOU for introducing me to Brian Eno a few years back. Getting familiar/obsessed with his older albums sent me down a path which ended up with me really getting into Roxy Music and the late David Bowie. I don't think I would have ended up understanding the huge loss the world is feeling today otherwise. I just wanted to thank you guys. Huge musical moment in my life Welcome back too!
Did you see what Eno wrote after hearing the news? Fucking heartbreaking.
“His death came as acomplete surprise, as did nearly everything else about him. Over the last few years — with him living in New York and me in London — our connection was by email. We signed off with invented names: Some of his were Mr. Showbiz, Milton Keynes, Rhoda Borrocks and the Duke of Ear." Eno received an email from Bowie 7 days before he died, it ended with this sentence: 'Thank you for our good times, Brian. They will never rot.’ And it was signed ‘Dawn.’ I realize now he was saying goodbye.”
I have a hard time putting stock in thus lineup now. I can't see Florence overriding The Cure in terms of the headliner status; and having two electronic headliners would be bullshit as well and out of character for the festival.
I'm glad this will all be resolved tomorrow.
Snacks has said in interviews that he intentionally tries to move away from the concept of "headliner status", usually the Sasquatch poster makes some attempt to obscure the top line. The order of the top line doesn't necessarily strictly correlate with billing order.

Clumsy, let's be Animal Collective friends forever. I happened upon the sweet mashup of Panda Bear's Lisbon Zoo and Jaberwacky (from ATP) on none other than the soundcloud account of "clumsy342". Did you find that somewhere or did you make it?
I'm driving to this all the way from Seattle because holy shit.

Holy Hell. It cracks me up that 'Painting With' is being described as their most "minimalist" album (what does that word even mean in the realm of AC?) The time signatures are cray cray, very fast, bouncy and fun. Super interesting Avey/Panda vocal syncopation like we heard in Floridada appears to be consistent throughout the album. Can't wait to see how they handle this shit live.
