3 Combined: +5 for Crystal Castles and -2 for Doldrums, which was absolutely the worst live "act" I have ever seen ever... ever.
Ariel Pink? Sounds pretty... is horribly ugly, and made my ears bled, literally... Try a sound check... Then learn to use a Mic... go get vocal lesson. Better yet, take off the cliched garbage bag hoodie, and get off the stage. That whole thing was a crime against music. There was more wankerist knob tweaking on those synth decks than anything I could call music. There are more talented sounds coming from the neighboring stalls of public toilets the morning after hangover night. Stay in the studio if that's where you have a clue, because that was awful, and as my first experience with your so-called music, no I am not a biased hipster doofus. This is neither hating, or faking to like crap to seem cool... I give credit where it's due. For example, the drummer could hold a basic rhythm... he was the sole portion that resembled talent. Whose idea was it to have him creep around in the floor making weird jungle sounds? That was just bad... not in a good way, BAD IN A BAD WAY.
