What was that comment about racial diversity at a dead show I'm sure no one ever makes that comment any the black rappers concert.. asking where's all the white people at..
"And it is obvious in your puerile attempt to discredit me, Alan LInhart, that the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree."
Would you like to know what Alan has done to kids?

Oryx and Crake are a honest couple. Love both of them. They never faked any love story including their own. That's true.
Hey this is Rachel from Sleepy Sun! Just wanted to correct a major error I was just shown in this article. I was never romantically involved with anyone in the band, including Mr. Constantino. We all remind good friends and look forward to crossing paths again in the future. Thanks for covering the band!
YEA!! Amazing performance at both venues. They played some classics as well as a few new dirty dubbys Very cool. Venue is beautifully renovated and is clearly steeped in music history. Unfortunatrly, the hired bouncers who all called themselves managers, we're extremely rough and inconsiderate. I heard one man say he was getting close b/c of hearing loss, being a veteran. To which the blockhead bouncer responded 'oh ur a veteran? Who gives a f***!' And manhandled him, tossing him backwards That was totes evil. Otherwise the people, the vibe, and OMG the music was spectacular! I hope they come back soon we will be here with bells on!
This is simply dope!!! Peace and blessings as always from The Hip Hop Foundation.
This is what Mama Afrika would call, "Some Worthwhile, Conscious Ogun Fiyah for the People"!!! Salute, Brothas.
I hope it stays cool. I am dubious. Whoever bought the Roxy and refashioned it into The Buckhead Theatre done fucked it up
When I was at school back in the 60s, my friend was always into the Beatles and me Elvis after seeing G I Blues. It went on like that for a long time but in 2009 my friend went to Memphis with me and we had a wonderful time, visiting lots of the "Elvis places", obviously Graceland and also Tupelo. My friend learned so much about Elvis, not just the sexy good looking singer but also the man with a heart as big as a mountain, his generosity, his love for his fans, his kindness to people less fortunate than himself. From then on my friend has been into Elvis in a big big way and states that she wishes she had been into Elvis from the start as she feels she has missed out on so much. I cannot imagine my life had Elvis not been a big part of it, God Bless you Elvis, and thank you for the music. Love and miss you every day. I have just realized I have already contributed to this conversation, still never mind, my thoughts havnt changed and just one little thing, after almost 40 years since Elvis left us, his album his speeding up the album charts and heading for number 1. Just saying,
I saw Priscilla Presley on British TV tonight. In 1977 I was 11 years old. For some reason I thought Elvis had been married three times and went on google to look up his other wives. It seems he did not have any but some significant relationships. Wikipedia advise that in his teenage years Elvis dated a number of black girls. I don't know if there is any basis in this. I have a friend here in the UK who is black and very concerned with race. I want to tell her that wherever racism has existed racism has also not existed especially in terms of music. I want to tell her to look at the Ska scene in England, reggae and Elvis. Am I able to do this?
Cool tracks. Thanks for sharing
I like Fading Frontiers a lot better than Halcyon Digest. That said, I don't like it better than Monomania - or Microcastles, or Cryptograms, or Weird Era Cont., or their EPs. I LOVE the abrasive noise of Monomania. Halcyon Digest made me halcyonic to the point of being comatose. Not that it didn't have some standout songs.
I agree with monster. You may come around to it. It's nuanced - it balances the sweeping shimmering melodies with a subtle sense of sadness, which only DH can do. And, too, I agree that part of DH's appeal is how each release varies radically from the last. The next one, almost guaranteed, will evince a return to its punk roots, but serve it up in a wholly fresh way.
Standout songs on Fading Frontier: Carrion, Snakeskin, Living My Life, All the Same.
Sounds like how I felt about Halcyon Digest. Too much pop, not enough noise and punk spirit. It took me a very long time, but I finally learned to appreciate the album for what it is. Fading Frontier is similar in that regard. It can feel underwhelming if you are into the fiery of Cryptograms/Microcastle/Monomania. Fortunately, even though you don't get the layers of noise found on previous albums, there is a lot of attention to detail to get lost in on Fading Frontier. These are good songs. I'd be surprised if you don't eventually come around on it. Besides, a big part of the fun of being a Deerhunter fan is relishing in how different each of their releases sound.
