Meredith Graves of Perfect Pussy has written an editorial for Pitchfork about the continuing one-sided conflict between Sun Kil Moon's Mark Kozelak and The War on Drugs.
It seems this is most people's opinion of the one-sided beef: Kozelek, a notorious curmudgeon, isn't doing anything harmful by harassing these guys. In fact, he's just doing what he's always done—being a grumpy ass who doesn't seem to care what people think of him. These same people insist that ignoring him and letting him continue to do this kind of stuff is the best option moving forward. To speak up about this kind of behavior from artists and performers is to inevitably be met with, "Lighten up, not everything has...

Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) is apparently not a fan of Jay Z. On a recent interview with CBC Radio 2's The Strombo Show, Homme talked about his experience at Jay Z's "Made In American" Festival and how he didn't like getting frisked by security or taking a picture with a bottle of champagne. You can listen to the entire interview in the replies.
"That guy's a kook, you know," Josh Homme said. "He has his security frisking the bands on the way in." When security asked to look through his bag, Homme threatened not to play the festival. "No one's ever done that," he said of his previous festival experiences. Then, of Jay Z, he said, "You shouldn't frisk my guys, you should fuck...

I just got done reading a really great article by Pitchfork columnist Andrew Nosnitsky here. In Nosnitsky's column, he focuses his examples of "classic" albums around the genre of hip-hop and the critical acclaim of Kendrick Lamar's new album good kid, m.A.A.d city. He makes a a lot of valued points on how critics will deem an album a classic with only a few weeks to a month of listening behind it. Where's the time? Where's the album's retrospect in history? For that matter, he also points out the difference in an artist going into the studio to write an album with no real intentions versus the tunnel-vision of making an album for the purpose of having a legacy.

So what makes an album a...

Read a lengthy interview with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver over on Pitchfork now. He talks about the new album, the leak, the writing process, his various other projects and much more.
From The interview"Calgary" really feels like an accomplishment to me. It has a form, a repetitive idea, and a good cadence. I really like the opening line: "Don't you cherish me to sleep." There's that whole thing that happens in relationships-- you can love someone but, as soon as they stop loving you so unconditionally that they stop being themselves, it can be so dangerous.
