The National -High Violet The National - Alligator Todd Terje - It's Album Time Danny Brown - Old Black Joe Lewis - Electric Slave Fantomas - Book 1 Fantomas - Suspended Animation Fantomas - The Director's Cut The Dodos - Visiter The Dodos - Time to Die Rathborne - Soft Dude York - Dehumanize
I had a dream that Nine Inch Nails, R.E.M., and Conor Oberst were announced as the Bumbershoot headliners. That's weird.
NIN are playing everywhere in the U.S. except the PNW this Summer, so I am thinking they have some other plans for us, and Bumbershoot was my first guess. Bigger main stage too. Fingers crossed for NIN/Soundgarden at Bumbershoot.
QOTSA sounds like a lawnmower? Does not compute. Dude's voice is all kinds of sexy smooth.
QotSA's sound is like a perfect combination of sexy smooth and crunchy raw. I don't understand how you could compare them to a lawnmower unless your lawnmower blasts Prince each time you use it or something.

Besides, if you don't like the first half hour or so of their set, then Gesaffelstein will be burning down the dance tent during the rest of it. I almost wish I didn't like them so I could catch his whole set because it's going to be fucking incredible.
If by get it you mean listening to those albums for the first time and enjoying them.
For me, listening to The National was like that scene in The Wolf of Wall Street when they take they old 'ludes. I tried a little and it didn't really do anything for me, so I had a little more and still wasn't feeling anything, so I did some more and suddenly they had me on the floor.
QOTSA is so much on the top of my list of most excited to see it isn't close. They are going to be the perfect headliners to close out the weekend. I do believe Burrito will love their set because he loves guitar. Josh plays some wicked guitar. Come on though, 4 songs on each album? That isn't even a fair shot! Just kidding. Everyone can have their own opinion but that is not much of a listen if you ask me. Their newest album may be my favorite but Songs For The Deaf, Rated R and the Self Titled are not far behind.
I would also vote in favor of S/T and Rated R. Josh Homme might be the heart and soul of QOTSA, but Nick Oliveri was their balls.
And picturing them play songs from their new album at the Gorge gets me all sorts of excited. God damn do I love that album.
Are we talking about The National here or QOTSA? Because I feel like this is a true statement for either one.
I'm also curious to know which Queens album(s) Señor Rito listened to because I used to be only half a fan of theirs, but their new album really grew on me. I can hear so much Bowie influence in it and I love me anything Bowie.

After seeing the schedule, I almost wish I hadn't learned to love The National as much as I do. Two months ago, I would have been perfectly ok with watching Tyler, the Creator and Boys Noize and skipping then altogether. Now I'm going to have to leave Tyler early and miss almost all the Noize. And it's going to be so worth it.
