So I spent the better part of my day listening to Sigur Ros so as to prepare myself. How in the nine hells does this fit in at a festival? 40,000 people with their party face on just doesn't seem befitting of a band that plays classical music badly(whatever that's what it sounds like).
1) Believe it or not, this shit can get pretty heavy live. Talkin’ silence to violence. Patience grasshopper, enjoy the slow build. 2) (DRUGS) WHALES. ZYLOPHONES. BOWED GUITAR. Turn that shit up, it’s meant to be listened to loudly. 3) Not sure why it won't allow me to embed the video but here's the link www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWYH6frn3og
She & Him announced a tour starting in June today for a new record. They're pretty much a lock right?
Am I the only one who thinks She & Him is boring as fuck? God damn, that set in 2010? Zooey Deschannel looked SO uncomfortable (I get it, it's her "thing" to pretend to be sheepish/awkward/cute, I just don't get why other people find that endearing). She also looked like she might faint at any moment from malnutrition, I was seriously concerned that if the wind kicked up she would have been blown into the gorge. At least that would have been interesting.
EDIT: Oh, I see, this conversation already happened over in the Rumors thread.
This website has T-shirts and hats that say "GONE SQUATCHIN' " With a Sasquatch guy on them and you can get 10 for $50. I know you guys have done boarder shirts in the past, not sure how you organized it but just FYI.

Thumbs up to Sigur Ros, Grizzly Bear, Modest Mouse, Lou Reed, Four Tet, Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Purity Ring, Wu-Tang Clan, Thee of Sees, Spiritualized and James Blake (only 5 of which I haven't already seen). But yeah, relatively speaking, a bit of a pooper. Although, there won't be a lineup that comes even close to touching that Primavera shit. Sasquatch, however, does have a chance to rival Coachella this year though, especially if Pea's source is correct.
