Why the late 1976 start date? Where are his peak early 1970s years? It is truly bizarre his label Rhino are not including them and I can only hope that the reason is because they are holding back for one more release. But till then this will do.
The top four are exactly the same as last week, and the following six are minimal changes and NOTHING NEW made it on AND… Oh, I guess that’s all I got.Proof that the US Hot 100 is the most conservative and reactionary charts in the history of the world. FYI
Bent Nail – Nothing – This sounds like shoe gaze yes, but shoe gaze with an attack that is sometimes missing in other bands and a vocal higher in the mix than we’re used to – A-
Totally in charge all night long, she had a very calm charisma and the confidence of an old soul. Angel did not give any long discourse but these short sentences between her songs were enough to build a strong connection with her audience which was already captivated by her performance

someone, who may have had too many beers, unexpectedly pulled an Anthony Weiner on us!
I am gonna be super busy for two days once again! On Monday morning, there even was a rumor about Beck joining the fest? It was just a rumor, but who knows…. As a surprise guest during Devandra Banhart or the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ set may be?
I am not sure about this ridiculous comparison, although I certainly heard some Radioheadish moments here and there, but Alt-J’s pretty music had running-in-cascades-of-voices harmonies, a lot of almost-a-cappella moments, and was building dreamy-sleepy landscapes.
I was seeing a few ‘straight edge’ t-shirts in the largely-male-dominated crowd, but I obviously couldn’t relate to all these people, who were watching a reunion that they weren’t even hoping for anymore;
Last night was not about being into a ‘nostalgia rehashed mode’
close enough for me to whip my gum at
They started right away playing their set of aggressive and sweaty bluesy garage rock with the titled song of their last effort ‘Sweet Sour’, and the crowd around me knew all the lyrics
