I enjoyed this year’s Splendour, as I always do.
By Everett True, age 11
Who started the fire? Arcade Fire did.
Bon Iver is hazier than you expect. It is lost and narcoticized, simultaneously desperate and asleep.
This sound is so glorious! It’s like if (early) B-52s and Pylon remained the best-known bands from Athens instead of … goddammit, what was that band’s name again? Coldplay?
THIS WEEK: we’re not off to a good start.
I want a little glamour around my presence: glamour is the last thing I possess right now. I don’t know if I’ll ever recapture that mood again.
“DO YOU REMEMBER THAT BAND THAT MADE YOU DREAM ALL SUMMER LONG, THE BAND WHOSE SONGS YOU KNOW BY HEART ALL THE LYRICS? WELL, IT’S CRAP! AND SO ARE YOU!”
