Dirty Projectors support Bon Iver, says HIPSTER RUNOFF is the scum of the indiesphere
The Dirty Projectors are a critically respected buzzband, whose buzz trajectory underwent a massive metamorphosis in 2k9 after adjusting their band lineup. However, after the recent Twitter beef that Bon Iver's lead singer started with the popular weblog HIPSTER RUNOFF, many other relevant buzz humans and buzzbands are rushing to support the #cyberbullying and #slutshaming of Carles. The Dirty Projectors backup singer Amber Coffman is the next to speak out against Carles and his controversial editorial voice. She supports Bon Iver, claiming that HIPSTER RUNOFF is a site that exists to "tries to cheapen + ruin everyone's hard work, everything that is positive/fun. so dark."
It seems like there is a TRUE indie war brewing between buzzbands rebelling against the blogs that buzz them. Earlier today, Carles went on a massive tweet spree, throwing out indie conspiracies about how buzz is truly created due to secret pacts and gladhanding between major music websites, indie labels, and relevant buzz celebrities. There is truly a Blogosphere Civil War happening right before our eyes. Whose side are you on?
Amber went on to tweet:
"it's not like @hipsterrunoff doesn't know how to be funny. they could do it without the hatred, but i guess h8tred gets u more "buzz" huh?"
In the new blogosphere world, 'talking mad shit' about a buzzband will get you more hits, buzz, comments, unique visitors, and social media links than the majority of crappy MP3s and videos by fringe buzzbands that no one cares about.
In the past, Carles has 'riffed' and/or 'joked' on the Dirty Projectors, claiming that lead singer Dave Longstreth 'operated his band' as if it was a cult of brainwashed wives, paying them not in money, but in the arbitrary currency of alt buzz. Carles has often 'joked' that the Dirty Projectors were unbuzzworthy before he acquired 3 PREMIUM hot altbaguettes, then, the male, misogynistic blogosphere 'took a liking to them' not just because of their vocal harmonies, but because of the sweet, sweet harmonies of their premium alt good looks when u go 2 see them live. They could just yodel and howl in discordance over random guitar riffs, and it would be sweet, sweet music to our eyes.
None of the altbaguettes could be reached for confirmation on their salary structure, song-writing royalties, or equity in the band. Much of what Carles says is not based on fact, some claiming that he is a 'parody' writer. But maybe anonymous parody goes too far, cyberbullying under the cloak of secrecy without any accountability. Twitter is abuzz with conspiracy theories, claiming that the only reason the Dirty Projectors issued public comment is to construct a narrative for their upcoming 2k12 album cycle.
Buzzbands are truly turning on Carles and HIPSTER RUNOFF. After his critically acclaimed coverage of #LDRGate, it seems like buzzbands want the blogosphere to 'go back to the way it used to be' in the beginning. Now, blogs are fighting for hits, doing anything they can to turn indie musicians into CELEBRITIES, processed like a meat market. Perhaps now we are only just learning how the sausage is actually made in this corrupt indie industry.
