Agreed. I bought merch and didn't get a lyric sheet, and I could see they still had hundreds. I know other people in the same boat. I'm not complaining, just agreeing that it seemed to be random.

I liked it a lot! Totally different vibe from "Mene"; it was just Jesse with a guitar. I was recording it but saw pretty much half the crowd was doing the same so decided to stop and just enjoy it.

So glad I went to the show, even if the guy behind me kept obnoxious yelling for them to play YFW songs. There's nothing like a Brand New show.

Don't feel the same way about Soco but your two favorites are mine as well. I hope we sometime get a better quality copy of Cleanser.

My pick for the three classics:

Weezer "Pinkerton"
Brand New "Deja Entendu"
Fall Out Boy "From Under the Cork Tree"

They kinda feel like cliche choices but almost every band coming out of the scene...

The Hold Steady are an overrated band in general (if not exactly in this "scene"). I don't think there's a band I've recommended more often to people. Craig is one of the best lyricists of the past...

Ian Cohen talked a little about the topic of growing up and "going to bat for" music that seems to be very juvenile and male in his review of the Pinkerton reissue, which I'd recommend. Great podcast...

What a lineup! It might be worth going to both the LA and Anaheim shows.

Yes! Thank you! And I feel like I'm in the minority here, but when an album just drops it doesn't feel like a Big Deal Album. I would love for an artist to promote their album in cool ways. Look at...

I've heard a lot of words associated with Taylor Swift, but that's a new, ridiculous one haha.

We'll see, but there are classic albums that still aren't even on iTunes! (In the Court of the Crimson King comes to mind). At a certain level, which she's at, you can hold out forever. Then again,...

What (only slightly) annoys me about this is the fact that, for many of us I'm sure, we have bought the albums but just have too much music to fit on our iPhones. It's nice to be able to stream songs...

Awesome. His compositions are some of the most influential of the sound of that time.

I'm a little surprised this band isn't bigger on this site. They're great and made up of members of other bands people here love.

I don't get the complaints about Brand New properly recording these demo songs and releasing the new versions of them. Radiohead has done this several times, sometimes releasing a song a decade after...

If Taking Back Sunday were still feuding with Brand New I bet they'd be kicking themselves that they didn't come up with the "made three albums, took 'em nine fucking years" line

That last little trilogy is great, the rest of the album's good enough. Nowhere near "classic Weezer" but does anyone really, honestly expect that now? This is a good follow-up to Hurley.

Okay fair enough. Also, to go back to a question you raised on the last podcast about who besides U2 would be a "safe" artist to give everyone (and wouldn't cause as much stupid complaining): how...

Maybe I'm missing something but if BitTorrent only took 10% and bandcamp would've been 15%, why not go BitTorrent?

Either way, though, I'm loving this album. Good little appetizer before the next...

The song's not particularly memorable to me, good or bad, but Tim has always had the strangest stage presence/facial expressions. It seems staged and fake for some reason. This doesn't affect how I...

One of the worst arguments. How do so many people find this valid? "Oh could you write this song? No? Then I guess you have nowhere to stand critiquing it!". I doubt Jason could've directed Draft Day...
