Tapes ‘n Tapes
As I’m sure you’ve all heard, today Pitchfork decided to bestow “Best New Music” honors on Tapes ‘n Tapes‘ The Loon. We all knew it was spectacular, we all already bought it, and we all at least would have liked to see them in concert. But as the devilish giant emerged from its ignorant slumber to listen to “10 Gallon Ascots,” another devlish giant emerged…Pitchfork’s readership. Gone is the true indie status, the holier-than-thou shtick, and showing up to see them by paying at the door.
This just in: The Loon just sold 132,479 copies, Manitoba was on the OC last night (twice), and TnT is opening for Staind next fall….goddammit.
If you have no clue what I’m talking about, listen to these songs:
