Jens, I could take a hand-held drill to my skull and get the same result. That is not magnificent.

I think people are blowing them out of proportion, they aren't really that crazy, she just has a weird voice.

Besides, she plays too badass of a bass to be a bad part of the band.

It's not just her voice. That's part of it, sure, but it's the whole package. Somehow it's just exceptionally unpleasant. The only way I could really put my finger on it is if I went back and listened to more Deerhoof. I'm not going to do that. I guess it'll have to remain, for me anyway, ambiguously terrible.

I swear to god, why did the dudes in Deerhoof and the dudes in Deerhunter have to use the Deer. For a while I thought you were all talking about Deerhunter and became quite confused.

I swear thats going to be the end of me.

Deerhunter are actually pretty cool! Unlike Deerhoof who are irritating, over-hyped, and terrible.

Dovey dude where do you always get such amazing T-shirts? (This isn't a rhetorical question. PM me a fucking list of sites or something!)

There was a time when the attention paid to the Beatles bothered me. And I went back and forth on it a lot. Now I only think about them when I'm high. The Beatles are The Beatles. I don't know if there's anything interesting left to be said about them one way or the other.

Everyone and their stupid no-nothing commercial radio-station in Sydney have an sonogasm at the mention of these guys. For the record, "Electric Feel" is not a half-bad pop song but like most pop songs the novelty of it wears off quickly.

I still like the Beatles, but I'm just so damn worn out on them, I hate it when my friends go on collective music binges, same with led zepplin.

I'll bite, I respect Radiohead, and I don't mind it when a friend plays them, but I've never had a desire to go listen to them. I dunno, theres always something else I'd rather hear.

Yeah! And the only mention I've heard of these guys is from fellow Brooklyn musicians. Oh and I almost caught them live at McCarren Park Pool once but I ended up not going and sitting around in Huda's house all day smoking Silk Cuts instead.

Many, many +1 to you, sir.  I've made more friends at shows wearing that shirt than all other portions of my wardrobe combined.

Now, to the thread:

Black Tide.  Yes, it's great that they're an average age of 15 and can play their instruments really well, but being impressed by a bunch of teenagers who can (poorly) rip off the best of thrash isn't impressive...it's lame.  I say that expressing undying devotion to bands like Gama Bomb and Municipal Waste, but at least those guys are fun. 

Trivium.  You sound like Metallica and lord knows we only need one band doing that at a time.

Into Eternity.  Hats off to them for touring their asses off, but: Every. Song. Sounds. The. Same.

Fuck you guys I bet Cut Copy are huge there too.

Also this is further proof that the more popular a great band is, the more people think they're awful.

Kinda like how in the States you will find a handful of people who've ever heard of Scissor Sisters but in the UK everyone is like "awh fuck those guys they're constantly on the radio!"

Aww fuck those guys, they're just plain annoying.

Cut Copy's music sounds consistent in a bad way, that is, very same sounding.

The Presets are just okay - nothing more, nothing less.

I'm with you! Although I do listen to them for comedic value for sometimes. But yeah, they're not something I can actually enjoy listening to.

Id's say that desperately tries to sound like Metallica, but fails-oh-so-bad.

Anyhow, umm... I'd say Mogwai.

I was going to look up MGTMT or however the hell you spell it, but then I decided if I don't know who they are, I cannot be sick of them.

Also, I can't stand Deerhoof either. It's not because Satomi's vocals hit me as "weird"-- they really don't. I've listened to music in all sorts of languages before; hearing someone just sing melodies doesn't bother me at all, since I routinely ignore meaning and concentrate on pure sound anyway; I don't even sing along with music so it's not like I've ever bothered to learn the lyrics the lyrics to even my favorites. What does bother me is that I find her voice high pitched and unpleasant.

I like some of their songs, but my god, people need to shut up about them being technically amazing and philosophical. The only musician who has more talent than the average rock musician is Carey, and even he isn't that amazing.
