Now playing: So many new albums. Clap Clap!, Vagabon, the new Animal Collective EP, Pinegrove, Alexander F. The new Girlpool single. I’ll listen to anything; give me a band with less than 4 songs or your dad’s metal cover band of Simon & Garfunkel.
Best concert experience: Arcade Fire on their The Reflektors tour. James Murphy introduced a poser band on stage and opposite the venue, Arcade Fire came out playing. Everyone was dressed for prom or in a Halloween costume, it was magical. I also saw My Bloody Valentine on my 21st birthday, the venue made sure everyone was given earplugs. It ruled.
Most Streamed Album This Month: Priests – Nothing Feels Natural, Vagabon – Infinite Worlds. The Clash – London Calling, always.
Next upcoming concert in April or beyond: Allison Crutchfield, Vagabon, RADIOHEAD, Girlpool, Wavves.. I’m a concert nerd.
Favorite Lyric: “Existence, well, what does it matter? I exist on the best terms I can. The past is now part of my future, the present is well out of hand.” – Joy Division – Heart & Soul

Favorite Lyrics: “I kid you not, on the dotted line signed
Ever since a minor, kids considered him some kind of Einstein
On a diamond mine grind, she was dumb fine
But not quite the type that you might want to wine and dine”
– Great Day Today by Madvillain
