BTS @ D/S!

(A Peek Behind The Scenes at Dolphin/Shark)

Generally, when we make lists or have a special feature, I try to make an interesting or eye-catching image to accompany it. Typically, I’ll put together a few ideas, then BIH and I will narrow it down to the one we want to use. I’ve got a bunch of rejected ideas sitting on my computer, and I felt kind of sorry for them. So, I thought I’d post them, and let them have a moment in the sun. 

(And if you’re wondering, yes, as a child I did make sure I played with every one of my toys regularly so none of them would feel neglected.)

Watch: Arcade Fire on SNL (2010)

twentyfourbit:

Arcade Fire made their triumphant return to the Saturday Night Live stage tonight, performing “We Used to Wait” and “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)” off The Suburbs, in addition to being Andy Samberg’s backup band for a digital short about the winners of a college Model U.N. competition preaching to an indifferent United Nations live on MSNBC. While the skit was comically disappointing (sorry, Mr. Newsom), the band rocked the music segments (as they’re wont to do). Watch all 3 videos below via Audio Perv:

Nice nice.

(I’m 80% sure that Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs is a co-conspirator and 100% sure that Owen Pallett is involved.)

Today Pitchfork posted a quote from Marnie Stern where she totally “slamz” Best Coast! Oh man! Band fight! I’m sure it will be just as great as when Wayne Coyne “dissed” Arcade Fire! Or when Matthew Friedberger “laid da smackdown on” Radiohead and Beck! Or when Joanna Newsom “didn’t care for” Lady Gaga!
Don’t you guys love when some artists don’t like other artists work? It’s sooooo unexpected, right? I always thought that everyone enjoyed everyone else’s music! Whoa, right?
The World = Topsy/Turvy
MORE IMPORTANTLY, look at that hilarious picture of Marnie Stern with a painting of a Basset Hound. The dog is clearly fed up with all of this.

The track “Modern Man” features verses in 9/4, or, alternating bars of 4/4 and 5/4, depending on how you want to quantify it. 
I love that.
