Does anyone here like Odd Future? They're apparently the Hot New Thing, but I haven't really been seeing the appeal. Mind you, I'm only tangentially aware of them courtesy of that time Steve Albini was on the same airport shuttle with hilarious results.

Well, I mentioned this earlier in the thread but tomorrow will be my first time seeing The National live. Pretty stoked.

For the unfamiliar:

I'm jealous. The National are one of my favourite bands, combining a kind of grandiose gloom with enough wry self-awareness that they can actually pull it off.

Anyone round these parts like Boards of Canada?

They're okay, but much like the vaguely similar Sigur Ros I could never get into them that much.

What is the Atlas forum consensus on Lana Del Rey? lol.

The fact that her album's supposedly terrible isn't surprising given that her two semi-listenable songs were still annoying and a bit precious.

I've been on a Big Black kick for the last few days, perhaps subconciously triggered by the Teddy incident and the much-referenced Big Black (Cock) scandal. Tongue
