I had fun jammin in the New Year in Petaluma. Kokopelli even made an appearance as we danced around the fire. It's exactly as cool as it sounds.
I love Animal Collective, but I popped in Feels on the way to work today and it's hard not to put it in the context of how it kind of fucked up a generation of bands (by young people, darn them) who just try to ape Animal Collective instead of making up their own thing. I guess that's my Gripe Of The Day.
Fuck, dudes, did you know that a nice man (Vince) in Stockton (so not THE Vince) put out the Bright Ideas LP? It looks rad and sounds even radder. I love it! You can stream it here today, if you like, and you can get a copy at Phono Select or straight from smiller.
