Live Performances

I found out about Kanye West after his 10.0, so I went to see him perform live at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

</embed>

Kanye West recently received a 10.0 from Pitchfork Magazine [link], making him the #1 indie artist of all time. I felt really confused, because I had never really checked out his mainstream ass. I am a predominately white indie music listener, but I am open to all musical experiences in the post-AnCo world, so if they say the shit is legit, I will check it out 4 sure. I went to see Kanye West's live performance at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. He sang some song that had a bunch of layers, but there was no backing band. It was kind of weird. Like a bunch of female voices were singing, but he was the only bro on the float. There weren't even little elf people dressed up pretending to sing.

s0 confused.

Felt really disappointed. Just really couldn't see 'greatness' in this song. Maybe I am not at the correct performance where he can really spread his wings and show us his stuff, but I am just an irrelevant American consumer who is trying to 'stay culturally connected' without many high level connxns + having 2 save money on concert tix. This was honestly going to be the only opportunity I would ever have to see a 10.0 artist perform live, and after that 1 minute and 30 second performance... it might be my last.

Feel like maybe his album isn't as good as every1 says it is, but maybe I am just judging by this performance and that is not fair. Not sure why he went on this Thanksgiving Day Parade to 'pretend he is singing' when he already has all of the indie cred in the world. Maybe it is 'performance art', but maybe he jut needs to sell more records 2 mainstreamers. So conflicted. Honestly this shit 'ruined my Thanksgiving.' I was thankful that there was another 10.0 artist in our world...but at the same time, maybe that 10.0 was just a sweet, sweet illusion to try to get us thru the great buzz drought of 2k10.

So confused by his modern post-apocalyptic blipster brand.

Should I get a Kanye West headband that says "10.0" on it?

Are Corey Feldman Lost Boys headbands the 'new shuttershades'?

Kinda bummed.
Was chanting "TEN POINT OH" as his float pulled up
but no1 knew what the hell I was talking abt
then ppl started laughing at him during his performance
bc of what he was wearing
and how he was 'clearly lip synching'

Really just a sad day for the state of modern indie music
I am not thankful 4 the state of my indie life right now
Stood in the cold
To see a failed 10.0

He seems so proud of his 10.0. On top of the world. Jeal/sad/devastated.

At least there were some pretty chill huge balloon thingies.
Decided 2 just rate them instead of being bummed about my 10.0 experience.

BLIMP/Balloon RATINGS

Kool Aid Bro: 9.4
Really solid effort skate boarding on chillwaves, living a kool ass lifestyle.

Dora the Explorer Broad: 1.5
Failed sophomore effort by indie songstress Dora. H8 females who think they are relevant balloons.

SpongeBob Lamestreamer Pants: 3.2
H8 ppl who are in2 spongebob 2 be all 'quirky.'

Ronald McDonald: 8.4
Smelled like a McDonalds franchise location. Transcended the genre of balloons with sonic posturings in the transcendent foodgaze genre.

Kung Fu Panda Bear: 9.9
Brilliant duet with Jack Black bringing to life the whimsical world of a Panda who could perform Kung Fu.

Kermit the Frog: 7.8
A disappointing followup performance by the once relevant Muppetcore artist.

Mr Potato Head (Señor Cabeza de Papa): 6.8
A valliant effort by the Latino sample-based artist Señor Papito

Pillsbury Dough Boy: 10.0
An introspective masterpiece in puff pastry wave by the Pillsbury Bro Boi. A true journey into the soul of the Dough Boy, with a matured production process demonstrating evolution beyond that bake-wave genre.

Who deserved a 10.0?
R u sad abt this Kanye West performance?
Do u think he 'ruined his brand'?
Do mainstreamers care abt the 'brilliance' of the Kanye West album or will they 'buy anything'?
What is the best balloon of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade?
Is Kanye West 'full of hot air'? [via journalistic-wave balloon metaphor closing line]

Regine Chassagne: She's Like The Wind

Many readers have demanded more coverage of Regine Chassagne, the lead singer of the Arcade Fire. Carles has responded by compiling a tribute video of 'only her' during the Arcade Fire's set on Saturday Night Live. Carles, acting as video editor/art director attempted to cut out as many shots of other band members as possible so that U can focus only on Regine. Do u <3 Regine more than evr?

Regine... Regine... Regine...
U've done it again
U stole the show
away from Win Butler, away from the rest of the band

I don't know how u do it
ur beautiful vocals
ur beautiful dress
ur streamers that blow in the wind as u spin round and round...

My Buzzband is trying 2 reach new fans [via the subway]

Photos by Ryan Barkan via BrooklynVegan


It's difficult to be a buzzband in the modern world. It seems like every1 is just trying to do stuff on the internet to 'go viral'/capture ur attention for 1-4 minutes, but they are forgetting about the spirit of music. The spirit of humanity. Music is here to lift us up, and help us enjoy life...sometimes even 2 help us escape from how much we h8 the trappings of modern society. My buzzband decided to do something new and original. We decided to go to the people. Instead of playing in a club or bar or church auditorium, we were going to find real people to play our real music. We went to a meaningful subway portal.

Playing our music to people who use public transportation will help us connect with real people, living real lives' in this real city of ours. First, we will succeed as a local band, playing rush hour every day for the next year. Then we will be signed and go 'national', and hopefully 'international.' It seems plausible that record label CEOs chill on this bus stop. In addition, this meaningful public space means provided us with some sweet acoustics that really helped our sound.

It was kinda inconvenient though, bc my female band mate has a really zany vintage piano thingy. Sucked 2 lug it down the stairs.

A lot of people didn't 'get' us and our music though. Maybe this is indicative of mainstream markets and their expectation of 'how music should sound.' So many bros were just like 'I want to get on my day without all of this hipster scum making my life hell.'

I think some of them confused us for 'beggars'. They didn't look at us or listen to us, as if we were less than human. Maybe they hated buskers (people who play music 4 money) because they don't have a solid track record.

We made $1. I wonder if it would be easier to maintain this business model, or to try to sell digital copies + exploit commercial licensing on the internet.

It was about more than just 'making money.' We used HD flip cams to cover the event, so we could get tons of internet media. Youtube, tweets, flickr fotos. We are social. We are social media.

Tons of people were twitpicing and dropping mad hashtags. Some people even used a tumblr app to live microblog that (Thank G-d for 3G wireless networks).

Wonder if the Bedford L Platform the altest place to play a meaningful live impromptu performance, or if we should have gone to a stop with a mainstream audience?

It seemed like we had invented something new. A new movement. The busker wave scene had been born, and we felt like we were the ones taking it to the mainstream.

Everything was going really chill. We had a lot of fans, and people were mad stoked to see us playing our cutesy indie music in a live zany context...

but then some ass hole African American came over and started banging on empty Home Depot buckets

Then some other African american came along and started banging on even more buckets, creating an ambient sound that sorta felt like Phil Spector recording Animal Collective.

Then things got weird when another busker band came along and started playing

Then some AZN bro came and started riffing on his acoustic

The vibe was texturous, and another African American busker came to riff on his sax.

We were fortunate enough to have a keyboard player there to really add some cute jingles. Her yamaha keyboard + amp + power generator really came in handy in the 3rd hour of our jam sesh.

Another AZN came out of nowhere and jammed hard on his sterling silver electro saxophone

Two of the founding members of the busker wave movement were sort of resentful of the new found popularity of our busker wave super group. They had been in the industry for 20 years, but didn't understand how our busker group had monetized so well.

Then a cello bro got off the subway, and we wrote a 'sad' song. Really mellowed out the whole subway platform.

Then wrote a dance anthem with the help of a zany guy + another accordion player

It seems like tons of foreign tourists really got into our band. They took pictures on their digital cameras, then uploaded them to their picasa accounts.

Overall, I think our experiment was successful. We made a lot of new fans, met some real people, and we felt like we reconnected with the spirit of music. Indie music no longer just lives on the internet. Indie music lives on the streets, in the subways, and in the sewers [via the Ninja Turtles].

Not sure if our next show should be in a city bus

or on an airplane?

Feel like city bus might 'reach real people', but people who are flying probably have tons of spending money that they are willing 2 spend on CDs + band merch.

1 indie band. 1 dream

Was it a 'good idea' for this indie band to play a show at a subway stop to create internet media?
Where would yall play to make the most amount of fans? The Super Bowl?
Do yall think buskers are annoying because they play shitty music?
How do u feel about black men who bang on buckets as if it is a 'real art form'?
Would yall rather give money to a busker, a beggar with a witty sign, or an indie band?

I recently escorted my teenage daughter to an independent rock concert.

Photo by thecobrasnake


My daughter begged and begged for the opportunity to see one of her favourite indie bands. Of course, with a name like that, I certainly had never heard of them, nor had I heard their music...except for when she hijacks the car stereo... Colour me unimpressed with all of this modern rock and roll music. Hmph.... While I can clearly see through the consumerist aspects of the music and marketing machines, sometimes you need to just turn your head and let your kid be a kid.

Well, she's a good kid--one of the brightest in her class, and she made an A on her recent pre-Algebra test. I'm a big believer in giving your kids freedom--something my parents never did. Who knows what I could have been if some one had believed in me and gave me some room to grow and make a few mistakes. Let's be honest... I don't want to be the bad guy in my kids' lives'. I want them to feel love, and I want them to experience life and love and art and beauty. I want them to live rich, meaningful lives', which is why it is important to let them cherish music.

The truth is, I am very protective of my 2 sons and particularly my daughter. It's been so hard to watch them grow up. I live in constant fear--a dark fear that they will make the wrong decisions, spiraling into a less than mediocre life filled with drugs, unprotected sex, and jobs in the service industry.

Photo via our driveway

Anyways... we drove to the venue. Lemme tell ya... Don't forget to bring cash for parking... They'll think of any way to make money off you these days. Before the show, I took my daughter to the merchandise stand so that she could pick out a t-shirt. She had a really hard time, since the designs were so intricate. I think she picked a good one, though...nothing too loud.

The band started playing, and it was actually invigorating. It reminded me of when I was young, but as you know, trends are much, much different these days. Everything was going great, but then I looked to my left and my daughter wasn't there. I looked to my right, and I just saw some greasy tween boy with deep acne scars. I looked behind me. I saw my daughter floating over a crowd of hands, being groped and manhandled in every which way by hundreds of sweaty palms.

This was truly the darkest moment I had ever experienced as a father. The only thing darker would probably be 'getting a lap dance' from my daughter at a 'titty bar.' Perhaps I should not have let her attend this concert. Perhaps I should have just dropped her off. It hurt to see my angel fade away, looking both uncomfortable and pleasured as men and boys touched her in her 'nether-regions.'

My daughter had vanished into the sea of tweenage hands. I let her go. I accepted that she was no longer my little baby girl. She had grown up, and it was time to let her spread her wings to become a beautiful alternative butterfly. She would find happiness in life, and my metaphorical teet would no longer quench her thirst for a fulfilling life.

She was gone, but in the distance I saw another teen girl moving towards me, as if the Lord's hands were bringing her to me. I realized I was at a rock indie concert. I realized I needed to have fun and be myself. The girl floated closer and closer to me. Eventually, she was held up by nothing but my arms.

I moved my and groped her, feeling her all around, exploiting the situation even though I was 20 years above the average crowd age. The truth is, I never experienced 17 year old sex when I was 16-19.

For the first time in years, I felt young again. People looked at me like I was a predator, or a sicko--but if only they knew what it was like to grow old. If only they knew these were the best days of their young lives'. If only they knew...

I am glad I let my daughter have her freedom, but more importantly, I got my own freedom back. I never saw my daughter again, but I know that somewhere, she is happy because she chose her own life. Enabling your children to make their own decisions relieves the pressure on you. Let them make their own mistakes. Let them live.


Has ur mom/dad ever escorted u to a concert/show that u wanted 2 attend?

Did the experience bring u closer together, or was it 'hella ghey' since u couldn't be urself?

In the future, will bands need ‘mascots’ in order to extend their brand?

Photo by Kurt Christensen via BrookVeeg


I remember when I was a young boy connecting with my father through mainstream interests, we used to attend professional sporting events. At these events, each team had a 'mascot' who intended to get fans 'fired up' about the home team. I'm not sure how much adults enjoy mascots, but I feel like they function as some sort of 'icon' who can get people emotionally involved/invested in the game. They are also to attract 'young fans', inviting them to become a life long member of the team's 'brand', even before the child 'completely understands the rules of the sport.'

It's interesting to see that the band WILCO got a mascot. I think that this means they are a 'huge' band, needing to reach new markets + demographics. A mascot will make Wilco shows more enjoyable, getting people on their feet, and doing things like 'starting the wavve.' I feel like the mascot trend might seem 'cheesy or lame', but I feel like the early adopters to this trend won't feel a backlash. Feel more worried about when indie bands with mascots reaches a 27% saturation rate, and people find it to be inauthentic, instead of whimsical and fun.

Do yall think that mascots are the future of independent music? Do u think that bands should accept their status as 'marketable brands' and create characters that might great assets when it comes 2 spreading their message? Are mascots 'cheesy and mainstream' or marketing tools that are more effective than twitter.

Not sure how 2 feel about the band mascot era. Seems like things are about to get 'mad crazie.'

Decided to 'brainstorm' mascots for popular indie bands. Let me know if yall have any feedback on these ideas. Some of these are metaphors.

Is the Dan Deacon LIVE Experience overrated?


Many underground music fans say that Dan Deacon is the last great performance artist of Generation X. Others say that Dan Deacon concerts are breeding grounds for organisms born out of the sweat of heavy-set men, overbearing 17-year-old female indie music fans, and greasy bros who like the crappy kind of electronic music.

Is it one of those things where 'it used to be more enjoyable before every one thought they were supposed to enjoy it, but now it's just better not to associate with?'

Dan Deacon Live Video. [He is an artist.]
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnQrUlepb-k&hl=en]
Dan Deacon Theory #1: He was created for people who used to SKANK to ska music.

I think I just stop taking certain music seriously when the late-majority of 'people who are into indie & alternative music' feel passionate about it, and enjoy it too much in the live-setting.

I feel more comfortable when music is only appreciated by Innovators and Early Adopters.

If we attempt to apply this innovation curve to more aspects of blog-based music, we will better understand ourselves, festival culture, the rise and fall of bloghouse, alternative bros, mainstreamers, Justice, and every thing else under the sun.

Best Coast accidentally thinks she can sing, ruins another Fleetwood Mac song on Fallon


I'm not sure who told Bethany Cosentino that she had a timeless voice that deserves to cover legendary rock band Fleetwood Mac over and over again. She already did a horrendous cover that made every1's ears bleed and melt and die. Some1 really should have thrown themselves in the way of her ruining Fleetwood Mac's "Storms" LIVE on Fallon, doing some stripped down version that 'highlights her voice.' It is clear that her innercircle feeds her a neverending stream of lies just to keep her happy, but ultimately, putting her in a position to fail as a FuseTV-wave artist.

To be fair and honest, Bethy's voice HAS improved since her fuzzy buzzy days when she made music that every1 actually liked. However, every1 still wants the fuzz buzz, not this poor man's nostalgic 70s-90s rock, which is why her album tanked, and now we're stuck watching all these weirdo Fleetwood Mac covers. It is as if she wants to murder Stevie Nicks, skin her, and wear her as a skin suit.

Was this cover 'effing terrible'?
Did it make u uncomfortable bc it was 'stripped down'?
Do u believe that this cover was 'amazeballs'?
Did they just ruin another Fleetwood Mac song?

Is this worse than her 'Rhiannon' cover?
Should the Chill AZN Bro 'say something' abt their string of terrible output?

Beach House sounds comatose on Letterman. Did they TANK?


Beach House some how went from 'vastly underrated' to 'way overrated' in a few short album cycles. Don't get me wrong, I vibe to the Beach Haus, but it can be pretty boring, especially on TV when they are just standing there trying to be deep. While there's nothing wrong with vibing to VixxLeggies, I sorta wish they at least did something stupid that was 'trying too hard' on here so there would be something to write about. Instead, they just do the Beach House thing. Not really a good sell for one of their concerts, unless you are age 13-17 and want to pretend you have 'grown up feelings' thru 'deep' music.

Maybe Beach House has taken a step back since Teen Dream...
Sorta wish they decided to sound more like Katy Perry's hit single "Teenage Dream"...

Do u think Davey Letterman vibes 2 Beach House while accruing speeding tickets?

Oh Vicki...

Is Vicki LeGrand the 'sexi Cousin It' of indie?
Does she have the best curls in indie?
Do u <3 this album, or did they regress?

Lana Del Rey sings "VideoJuegos" en Espanol on Spanish TV

</embed>

Lana Del Rey is an international sensation, which basically means America h8s her, but every where else in the world <3s her. I guess that's chill, but she is probably going to miss out on premium chain restaurants in other parts of the world. She went on some random ass Spanish TV show called " Buenas noches y Buenafuente" that looks like the Mad TV of Spain. But maybe it just means other parts of the world are 'really stupid' and haven't culturally evolved, which is why the jam an English song in between dumb skits that were written for 10 year olds and old abuelas with dementia.

I didn't actually watch this video, because let's face it--we've heard this song hundreds of times, and analyzed many performances of it ever since she tanked on SNL. I just saw some dudes talking in Spanish, and figured she must have sung it in Spanish or something.

I hope she didn't sing it in Spanish, because then the song changes meaning. U can assume that she is singing to her 'lazy Mexican BF who only wants to play Grand Theft Auto/Halo/Mario Paint for SNES.'

Do u want to voy a jugar sus video juegos?
Do u <3 Lana En Espanol?
Is Lana Del Rey the #1 international sensation of all time?
Can she top Menudo?
Should she cover 'La Vida Loca'?
should she be the next American Idol judge?

Bon Iver plays on Ellen to try to sell albums to lesbian homemakers

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

Bon Iver is probably one of the most mainstreamest bands in indie. Even though they are a total snooze, they some how won a Grammy, so now there is this whole perpetual post-album cycle era where they have to capitalize on their opportunity to sell more albums to lamestreamers. This is why they played ELLEN, the daytime tv show hosted by 'the kewlest tweeniest viral-est lesbian in the history of the human race.' I am not sure how Ellen stays motivated to exploit so many memes, and produce web content that goes viral with lamestreamers all the time. I think whenever some1 is a famous tween or meme sensation, she basically enslaves them or something.

Anyways, she pretends she is totally into Bon Iver, even though the only thing she probably listens to at night are the moans of one of her female love slaves as she punishes and pleasures them.

Of course, Justin Vernon does his whole 'aw shucks! Lil ol' me on Ellen!' act, even though he is totally milking the fame, basically addicted to it at this point. So annoying when people don't just sack it up, accept they are mainstreamers, and instead have to act borderline disgraceful. Maybe he just h8s lesbians or something.

Maybe he's just like me, and the look on his face says, "I wonder if Ellen DeGeneres wears a strap-on underneath her pants every day when she goes to work." I truly believe that Ellen would be less popular if more people wondered that.

Is Ellen Degeneres just a viral pyramid scheme?
Is she trying too hard 2 be Oprah?
Do u feel sorry for Bon Iver 4 having 2 play Ellen?
Should Bon Iver just retire?
Do u wish that the Ellen show was just 1 hour of family friendly lesbian x-core?
Did this Bon Iver performance put u 2 sleep?

Lana Del Rey mobbed by adoring #LanaDelR8rz, plays Kimmel

</embed>

Lana Del Rey is the luckiest girl alive, but more importantly, the luckiest new buzzband human alive. She sold mad albums, and really only performed like 10 songs total 4 a live audience. Now, she doesn't have to 'tour' because touring is 2 try to make money because u didn't sell albums, but she already sold albums, so she can be like 'whatevz. I'm just gonna chill, milk the spotlight, and do some random TV performances.'

She was on Kimmel playing "Video Games", and it was boring/forgettable. It is like she 'isn't even trying', but I guess she doesn't have 2. God Bless her. She truly has it all. I'm more interested in hearing tons of grown ass men scream "Lana! Lana! Laannnaaa!" than actually hearing her mutter her way thru another rendition of "VEEHHHDEEEOOGHAAAMMMES."

Bon Iver sounds like dying indie rock on SNL, has mysterious HUGE black teenager in backing band


Bon Iver played on SNL, but no1 watched, and no1 really cared because he didn't tank like #LDR. I guess he is nominated for Grammys, or something, but that's only because the Grammys will now have '1 white man indie rock slot' per year in the post-Arcade-Fire era. I wouldn't even recommend watching these videos. Bon Iver just represents how 'the indie scene' is getting older and boring, and most blogs are 'stuck' posting this garbage because cool dads have to waste time during the day at their jobs that make them $50-90k/year. Roughly 5% of their annual income goes towards investment in 'culture', which includes purchasing music.</embed>

While no1 cares abt Bon Iver's performance, America is left wondering 'who is the black dude in Bon Iver'?

Perhaps Bon Iver is not an indie band, but instead, some sort of movie about a teacher who teaches a group of innercity kids about how indie rock can save them from 'the streets'. Sorta like a mix between 'Mr. Holland's Opus' and 'Stand and Deliver' and 'Coach Carter' and 'Dangerous Minds.'

Does n e 1 know if Bon Iver is 'just 1 person' or 'a whole band'? Maybe it is like the Dave Matthews Band where they all take 1 guy's name and then play honky jam chime rock?

Do u feel bad for any website that ranked Bon Iver in their 2k11 Top 10?
Is their music 'beautiful'?
Who is the black guy in Bon Iver?
Is he Bon Iver?
Do u wish that u were saved from ur innercity community with the power of indie rock?
Are we living in the post-LDR era of indie where some1 has to 'go out of their way to shock us' to get our attention or else we don't care even if it is a deece performance?
Did Bon Iver 'kill it', or did they just look like random ass dudes from the woods who 'made it to the big time'?
Do u ever cry at night and listen to 'Holocene'?
Is Justin Vernon a HOTTIE HUNK BB?
Are the sounds of Bon Iver the sounds of dying indie rock?

Here is their song "Midwestern Bed'N'Breakfast' or something.

Watch Lana Del Rey bask in her fame, adored by fans & paparazzi outside of Letterman

</embed>

Lana Del Rey's Letterman performance was boring and forgettable, so any1 who wasted their time formulating an opinion on it is probably some obsessed loser. At the end of the day, Lana is CATAPULTING in2 mainstream fame, and most indie blogs will be forced to stop posting her bc she is so mnstrm and tweens + Middle Americans <3 her. These are her fans loving her outside of David Letterman's Ed Sullivan Theatre.

Lana has fans. They love her. She loves them.

Fan: We love u Lana! It's U, It's U, it's all 4 u.
LDR: Nooo. I love U! It's U, It's U, it's all 4 u.
Fan: We promise! It's U, It's U, it's all 4 u.

Lana Del Rey EFFING TANKS on SNL. Is her career 'effing over'?


Even the most entry-level buzz market analyst knew that Lana Del Rey would COMPLETELY tank on Saturday Night Live. It happened right before our eyes like a trainwreck, except that the train was carrying tons of port-a-potties, and then everything got covered in poo-poo and they had to shut down an entire small town because of the toxic smelliness of the poo fumes, and then every1 got on twitter to say 'OMG THERE'S SO MUCH POO AND IT SMELLS SO BAD! EWIE MCGOOEY!' What was supposed to be Lana Del Rey’s introduction to Middle America turned into a nightmare, with even the lamest of lamestreamers turning to their social media network of choice to say, “Who be dis bitch, yall? She can’t sing 4 shit.” This has already been the perception of many critics, blogspots, and content farms who resent her rise to internet fame.

Where were u when Lana Del Rey tanked on SNL? It's a moment we'll never forget.

Although 'Video Games' was the song that garnered the most per capita adjusted 4 inflation buzz, the song is a 'complete dud' live. She has had many opportunities to 'fix' her live show, which leaves us asking, begging, pleading, "Why Lana? Why?"

At least she looked good, bb!

There have been rumblings that the entire team associated with the current Lana Del Rey launch will be fired. Even at her first performance at Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn where she was secretly billed as the Queen of Coney Island, she had a band that was intended to hide in the shadows [link]. There was already a disconnect between the universally projected image of LDR and her branded output. It never came together, and every1 must have been convinced that foreign press and TV appearances meant that 'everything was okay.'

This is LDR's fault.
This is not LDR's fault.

"Blue Jeans" was just good enough to be forgettable, but still sorta 'effing terrible.'

Lana Del Rey’s voice has been widely accepted as a gimmick, but her and her team never took the time to decide how it should be utilized when she was singing live. Obviously, she would have to turn down her wacky vocalisms, and learn how to gesticulate like that Florence + the Machine broad in order to make herself a viable product. Unfortunately, they just put her in a pretty dress, and figured every1 would all be like 'what a sweetheart, yall', but then they forgot that every1 just wants to h8 everything, especially when it looks like ur not trying, and u don't care.

Heads will be rolling this week on #TeamLDR....

What did u think of her performance?
Did LDR tank as hard as u thought she would?
How can Lana Del Rey save her career?
Is there too much negative buzz?
Was she 'not ready yet'?
Who is 2 blame?
Did we build her up just to 'tear her down'?
Did we 'buzz her up' just 2 'hate buzz her down'?
Is she indie's 'biggest failure of all time'?
Did she 'disgrace' the SNL stage/waste the time of Middle Americans?
Is she 'the Rebecca Black of indie'?

I guess Lana Del Rey was right... U and I... We were born 2 die...

Lana Del Rey puts on a snoozefest of a performance on some foreign TV show. Is SNL doomed?

</embed>

This is Lana Del Rey performing on some television show called "Jonathan Ross." I have never heard of that show/that human, but I'm sure people who live in Estonia have never heard of Jimmy Fallon, so it probably all evens out. Anyways, she sang "Video Games" and it was mad boring. She has the same backing band, and sort of just half-asses thru the song. She could at least 'dance a lil bit', hire backup dancers, or maybe just wear less clothes. Lana's gonna have to do a little bit more than looking like a dead person whose dead body had a malfunctioning voice box installed and a microphone glued 2 her hand.

ZZZZZZ

U have to be concerned about her SNL performance that's coming up in January, she might put 'the entire nation' 2 sleep. Ideally, she will ride out on Llama Del Rey, and every1 will be all like 'who is that hot broad on a llama'?

Zooey Deschanel sings crappy Xmas song on Ellen to appeal 2 lesbian stay-at-home moms

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

If you have a lamestream band, you play the Ellen show, which is why Zooey Deschanel took her backing band to play some really lame Xmas carol on her show. I have honestly seen better performance of the same song at the old folks home where we sent my grandma to die/be systematically murdered by inept care, but they had an annual talent show around Christmas and an old lady named Martha did just about as good as Zoeey. Maybe Ol' Martha could launch a buzzband and market herself as a crafty-wave whimsy artist. She was not keut and did not have bangs. She did have backup dancers that wore sillie Xmas dresses.

She & Him's lame Xmas album might be 'the best selling album in indie' this year. As usual Ellen looked 'effing hot' on TV. Sorta wonder why some lezbos think it is 'hot' to look like a 17 year old boy dressing like he is going to a high school dance to fingerbang chicks. I guess 2 fingerbang chicks. Makes sense now.

Does She & Him 'kill it'?
Does ZoZo need 2 'go solo' and stop splitting $$$ with M. Ward?
Is Ellen 'the hottest lezbo dude in the game'?
Do u miss Oprah?
Do u just wanna d.a.n.c.e. with Ellen?
Is She & Him's Christmas album 'the worst gimmick evr'?
Does this song sound like some1 is pooing on an Xmas tree then wiping their butt with stockings?

Zooey Deschanel tanks on Leno, sings boring Christmas song in kinky fetish Xmas dress


Zooey Deschanel is the lead singer of She & Him, which basically means that she found a dude at a coffee shop/open mic night who could decently play guitar, and she sings with her frog-wave voice over the music and whimsy-ass girls are all like 'she's an indie icon!' Anyways, this is not a song from the Muppet Movie, instead it is a song off She & Him's mainstream Xmas album. Unfortunately, they 'had their asses handed to them' by Michael Buble, but the band did go on Leno.</embed>

U have to feel proud of ZoZo 4 going on Leno despite her recent divorce from Ben Gibbard. The holidays are always a tough time after a breakup. But if u have an xmas album 2 promote, u better put on a dorky Xmas dress, shake ur ass, trim ur bangs, and sing ur <3 out.

Does Zooey Deschanel 'have a good voice'? It seems like she has a bad/mediocre voice, but she is at that point where a bad singer 'has confidence' so she just keeps singing bc all her friends told her she is talented, but every1 who doesn't know her is like 'ugh. not really vibing' but then at the same time, they are like 'well...she seems keut and attainable, so i guess i'll watch so i can gaze into her blue eyes and wonder what she is like in bed.'

Does she look good?
R u gonna buy a plaid-wave Xmas dress? Not sure if it is 'cute', 'whimsical', or some sort of kinky Xmas fetish dress...

Does she sound good?
Should she replace M-Ward with an iPod/CD that just plays acoustic guitar so she doesn't have to share money with him?
Does she look strong or meek without the <3 of Ben Gibbard, or is she all like 'ugh. 1 less baby i have 2 worry abt'?
Can Zooey Deschanel survive in a Lana Del Rey world?

Das Racist plays as a 'full band' on Conan, Heems pretends he is Panda Bear

</embed>

Whenever I've seen Das Racist LIVE, I have only seen a few faded bros rolling around on stage rapping. Never have I seen them 'play as a full band' with 'backing members.' I didn't even know they could play instruments. It seems like they saw the Conan O'Brien show as an opportunity to 'prove that they are real musicians' [via Unplugged vibes]. Maybe some1 told them that they had to 'put on a good show' or else they would 'totally piss away any chance of being on Fallon and having ?uestlove be their backup drummer instead of some alt dude.'

Anyways, it seemed chill. Seems like their 'frontman' Heems wanted to prove that he is 'the Panda Bear of Das Racist' by playing sampler on stage.

There was also a fake Michael Jackson bro involved. They were probably singing the song "Mike Jax" because his doctor is about to get sentenced and sent to the slammer.

Did Das Racist 'kill it'?
Did they 'tank'?
Should Victor Vasquez permanently play drums on stage?
Will Das Racist change their live performance setup?
Is it more cost effective for a buzzband to refrain from traveling with instruments?
Is Heems a better sampler player than Noah Lennox?
Are they trying to be 'less of a rap band' and 'more of an indie band'?
If Das Racist were 'black', would they have Odd Future levels of success?
Is Conan O'Brien trying to win 'the indie cred war' against Jimmy Fallon?
When will Conan be cancelled?

Bjork goes on late night show, acts like an insane woman from a rural island, sounds terrible


Bjork's gimmick is about as tired as it gets. She used to be a cute foreigner screaming into a microphone over minimal, whimsical noises. Now she is the same thing with a few more bleeps and bloops. We get it, Bjork. U have a strong voice. Ur artsy. Now we realize that people from Iceland are just 'bat shit insane', not actually 'legitimate artists.' Bjork being a famous musician is the Icelandic equivalent of 'being a secretary at a law office.' There are tons of crazy women in Iceland yelling every where. Trust me, I've been there on a layover on the way to London.

Anyways, Bjork went on some late night show, had red hair, got a children's choir to try to make the performance seem 'deeper.' It really confuses me. I have no idea what she's saying. It feels like I am inside of her head as she is yelling at kids to 'get off her porch' or something.

Do u have any idea what Bjork is saying?

Is Bjork's real name "Jessica Bjork"? "Susan Bjork"? "Esther Bjork Williams"?
Is Bjork a 'true innovator' or did she just 'get lucky' because she came to market when we overvalued insanity? [via The Harmony Korine Theory]
Do u <3 or h8 Bjorkie?
Should she retire back 2 Iceland?
Is it time to buzz euthanize Bjork?

Lana Del Rey looks BANGIN on German TV, still sounds terrible live

</embed>

Lana Del Rey is the #1 meme of 2k11. Is she a legitimate artist? Probably not. However, every1 is talking about her. It will be interesting to see if her 'internet interest' actually sparks sales, or if every1 already 'gets' her vibe bc they just watched her sillie music videos.

Anyways, she went on German TV and played at some bar. I don't know if this is a 'real network TV show', but it is probably a cable access show judging by the quality. Lana seems 'right at home' playing in a bar, which is probably where she was destined 2 perform til the end of time, then indie forces misidentified her, and now she is playing at a bar in Germany instead of at some 'talent scouting session' and a shit hole bar in Los Angeles. As always, she sounds sillie, and the song is all slow and boring and she makes faces and has sex with the microphone and looks shy.

Do u <3 Lana Del Rey?
R u tired of her memes?
Can she break thru and become a mainstream diva, or is she just a 1-hit meme-wonder?
Does she look bangin?
Does she need 2 show more skin/ass?
Do u miss her butt?

Lana Del Rey shows off her tight lil ass on French TV, isn't wearing any panties

What happens if u ask Lana Del Rey to 'do something controversial for ratings'?

You get Lana Del Rey's TIGHT ASS on camera!

It's as if the buzz gods finally heard our prayers and decided to give us something [HIGHLY BLOGGABLE]. Even though it's not an mp3 or an album, it's just a nice lil ass. On the bright side, we get to use out computer's zoom tool to try to figure out the most important question of the year: Is Lana Del Rey wearing panties or is she letting her beautiful vagine 'breathe' despite being on international TV.

Lana Del Rey might have finally won over the blogosphere by showing us what we're all interested in. Her BANGIN BOD.

You can watch the video of her a$$ here. She appears at around the 50 second mark. She appears a few times before that, but there are other random ass 'frogs' speaking in French before that.

R u totally hornie 4 Lana?
Do u <3 her nice lil ass?
R u glad she is finally embracing that 'sex sells'?
Do u think she is hella proud of dat a$$?
Should we start calling her 'Lips McAssAss'?
Does she have a badonk or a tight lil ass?
HAVE U FIGURED OUT WHETHER OR NOT SHE IS WEARING PANTIES YET?

Here is Lana's performance of 'Blue Jeans'. Of course she still sounds like a vocal impressionist, but she is still really pretty, so whatever.

Veuillez installer Flash Player pour lire la vid&eacute;o</embed>

I would encourage her to take the microphone away from her mouth so we can see her face, but that must be some sort of subconscious marketing to try to make it seem like she is 'gripping our peens.' It works. She has gripped mine with a grip tighter than a virgin buzz pussie.

So many random black bros in her band. So confused, but whatever. Did u notice she smiled at the end of the set?

Still... I can't stop thinking of that butt...
Honestly wish she would show off more of that bod. She has NOTHING 2 be ashamed of. Sure ppl h8 her for being 'manufactured', but this is a massive moment for her. Would Feist do this? Lykke Li? St. Vincent? Lisa Loeb? Sarah Bairelles? We might never know how perfect their asses are, but Lana gave us a FREE peep show to chew on. That's worth something. That's worth a lot. Sex sells. Lana knows she looks good, bb!

Do u <3 Lana more than ever?

Is this her 'breakthru' moment into the buzzosphere?
Has she embraced her core strengths as an artist?
Has she 'stooped' to low levels that will negatively impact her career?
Will ppl stop taking her seriously?
Does she have a nice butt?
Would most girls kill 4 her bod?
Does she have the best body in indie?
Will we ever figure out if she was wearing a g-string, thong, or was just 'going commando'?

2nite I'll fall asleep...
thinking abt Lana...
and her butt...
singing 2 me...

Donald Glover 'tanks' on Fallon. Has he topped Drake as the 'softest nigga in the rap game'?


Drake is commonly referred to as 'the softest nigga in the game', but it seems like he might get to give away his title belt to Donald Glover after this 'soft ass' performance on Fallon. He played his 'single' "Bonfire", and this performance was easily more horrific than the bombing of the Hindenburg by terrorists! It's such a disgrace that even ?uestlove, the poor man's Kevin Eubanks, bypassed playing drums, and that guy will srsly collab with any mediocre buzzband/youtube sensation. Admittedly, ?uestlove probs 'kissed his ass' backstage bc he is addicted to fame, and Donald Glover might become the next Chris Tucker if he stops wasting his time as a rapper.

It's easy to see why ?uestlove 'passed', though. They have a dude playing a violin on stage. #soft They bang on stuff. #wack Typical entry-level performance vibes. I wonder if they think they will be playing arenas one day soon. U gotta feel bad for Donald Glover, because it is clear that he 'thinks he is a real rapper' and not just some 'cool dude who is marketed to boring white bros and as a hardcore rapper that is soft enough for MTV midmarket tween audiences.'

As u can see, he is basically just doing a Tyler the Creator impression, except Tyler the Creator used to be poor and black, but Don Glov was middle class and basically white, so he doesn't have any cred.

Lana Del Rey TANKS on her live television debut, sounds like a vocal impressionist

</embed>

Let's be honest. Any one who ever thought it was 'kewl' to buzz Lana Del Rey should be forced to issue a public apology, then have significant percentage of their twitter followers 'removed'. We witnessed her 'live television debut' on some Jools Holland show, which is probably like the Jay Leno of England or something, and it did NOT go well. Maybe nerves. Maybe her marketing, pr, and management teams got a little bit too ambitious. She clearly wasn't ready 4 this, but I think they are doing the EZ buzz strategy where they 'piss off American bloggers', then go over to Britain and convince the mags+humans that she is 'buzzworthy' because they still 'get off' to buzzing/'creating' a 'new artist' who they can claim that they invented.

Did Lana Del Rey 'kill it' or 'effing tank'?

I'm not really sure what is 'charming'/'appealing' abt her live brand. She seems better in vlog-style videos with cheesy vintage filters. I guess her voice is 'supposed to be unique', but it sounds like some sort of vocal impressionist doing cliched girly vocal deliveries. I could see a similar performance at a karaoke night in an old folks home every Saturday night. This is a MASSIVE DISASTER, and it is clear that indie tastemakers will turn on her album if she continues to 'absolutely butcher' the ~1.5 decent songs that she already has.

Needless to say, the Lana Del Rey experiment is a MASSIVE DISASTER on all fronts.

They even got a professional-ass looking musician bro who looks like Will.i.am. to play piano. Seems like he really vibed, picking up a paycheck to play for this damsel.

Do u wish that bro played in ur buzzband?
Does Lana BB look good?
Did she sound good?

Did she 'deserve' this guestspot, or should she have done more to 'earn it'?

MGMT plays boring song on Fallon, song surprisingly not from flop album 'Congratulations'


Don't click on this video, unless you want to fall the eff asleep. Staying true to their latest album 'Congratulations', their performance was a let-down, uninteresting, and uninspired. They must have received a paycheck or something, because these days 'non-album cycle late night performances' just mean that ur desperate for blog press. At least they put on kewl costumes. I guess that's what we expected from MGMT, right? We just want them to 'get their Of Montreal' on, and put on some zany yet boring festival show? What a letdown. I really hope they can resurrect their careers....

Cheer up, Andy VanBrogardyn....

I am srsly worried abt him, but at the same time, I am mad jealous that he gets to date that premium slam piece Vanessa Hudgens. [link]

Have u forgiven MGMT for 'Congrats'?
Do u wish they had played 'Kids' or 'Electric Feel'?
can they rebound?

Was Radiohead beyond forgettable on SNL? Does n e 1 still care abt them?


Radiohead went on Saturday Night Live. I am not sure why they did that. Their whole gimmick is 'being interesting', 'cutting edge', and 'controversial.' But I guess they haven't really done anything that innovative since they 'gave away their album for free.' They must be desperate 4 something, which is why they went on SNL, which is basically only watched by 'losers in dead end relationships who stay in everynight' while they stuff their faces with Whole Foods pastries and feel convinced that they are the most important cultural critics in the world.</embed>

At least we got to see Thom York jimmy jangle some maracas. Otherwise, a total snoozefest.

Really boring performances that didn't translate to TV at all. Sure, they are accomplished, but u can tell that their heads are so far up their own asses that there is no way they will ever make another album that isn't more than 'branded noises'. We're witnessing the death of what are supposed 2 be 'legends', but I could find 100 myspace bands who could poop out these noises in their sleep.

Did Radiohead 'tank' on SNL?
Is SNL 'funnie'?
Who still 'gives a damn' abt Radiohead?
Have they ever been 'edgy' or just conceptual jam band music for ppl 2 do drugs 2?
Does Radiohead have anything left in the tank, or should they hurry up and do a 10 year public breakup so that they can overcharge for their reunion tour?</embed>

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO +PHOTOS: Lana Del Rey made SECRET live debut, dressed like a total lamestreamer.

</embed>

Lana Del Rey is the most controversial broad in indie right now because she doesn't really 'belong in the club', but she engineered one song that sounds like a really good female indie song, and now we are watching as she and her team of industry experts try to 'trick the blogosphere' into thinking that she is authentic + relevant. I feel kinda bad for whoever she is on the inside (Lizzie Grant), but you have to blame the puppeteers who are behind her for exposing her to this intense scrutiny.

Lana Del Rey is about to start playing 'real shows' under her own name, but she had some 'secret show' at Glasslands, a lofi Brooklyn buzz space, last night. You can't really judge anything based on lofi youtube footage, but u can analyze her stage presence and personal brand. Apparently she was wearing lamestream jeans and had a bedazzled/bejeweled iPhone sticking out of her pocket. She clearly wasn't taking this gig very seriously.

If she wants to be 'alt', she's gonna have to figure out where to buy relevant 'jeans'. But I don't think alt girls really wear jeans.

R u gonna buy Lana style jeans?

Pitchfork was there, too. They took some pictures that really 'enable' her branded aesthetic, so I guess that means they will keep 'pushing her.'

Photos by Erez Avissar

The most shocking image of the night was one that showcases her 'backing band', which looks like it is filled with 'professional'/'hired gun' musicians. If she was a true buzz artist, she'd have emaciated altbros who she used to sleep with in her band.

Did the label hire the Roots as ur backing band, bb? I wonder if they were all like 'wtf are we doing playing in this Brooklyn shithole? I've played backup keyboards for Lady Antebellum/the Black Eyed Peas!'

Scary nails, bb! Don't claw me in our next cat fight!

What do u think of her LIVE DEBUT?
Is she still 'alt'? Was she ever?
Will the indiesphere 'let her in the club'?

Was Neon Indian great on Fallon?


Neon Indian went on Fallon at around the same time that he received a 'controversial panning' from Pitchfork. It seems like Jimmy Fallon is really adopting Neon Indian as 'one of his fave buzzbands', and he will form a relationship similar to the one between David Letterman and Ryan Adams which lasts 4evr. </embed>

The performance seemed chill. The 'backing band' members of Neon Indian looked 'cooler', and 'more professional' than ever. They all played some synths, twisted some nobs, made some noises. We got to see indie hottie Leanne Macomber jimmy jangle some maracas instead of a tambourine. Boy, can she jimmy jangle.

Was Neon Indian 'great on Fallon'?

Did the Creators Project 'waste more money' on a buzzband lighting rig?
Did Alan look good, bb?
Did Leanne's body look BANGIN?
Is Jimmy Fallon winning the buzzband war?

St. Vincent looks like a 'crazy lady' on Letterman, plays boring song


Let's be honest. The majority of St. Vincent's music is too 'high end' for any1 to enjoy unless the have a stick up their ass. It's not really poppy, nor is it very listenable. Most guys just go to check out her premium indie looks/body. Last night she was on Letterman, and if I were a mainstreamer in Middle America, I would be all like 'Who is that crazy Annie Lennox wannabe?"</embed>

Not sure where she got her outfit. Pretty confused by this entire thing. If she breaks the 8.0 barrier on Pitchfork, there's gonna be some problems. For some reason she is critically acclaimed, but it seems like she played this 'massive joke on the world' to let her into the authentic indie club. I guess she is too pretty not to be in the club, though. No uggos allowed!

Did this performance 'tank'?
Did Letterman seem bored/like he wanted to 'pound dat ass'?
Did St. Vincent look like a 1990s-wave crazy woman?
Do u wish she wore something sexier instead of a 'witchy woman' outfit?
