Music Zen!

Your argument is sound, nothing but sound

Hard rockin’ experimental band Vampire Weekend releases Oxford Com(m)a video.

with one comment

Just when you thought those indie rockers who rose up from the projects of Chicago to pen such brilliant songs as A-Punk and Oxford Coma Comma couldn’t get more independent, they have. Pete Wentz, arbiter of independent music, has apparently introduced the video. Those of you who still watch MTV had better prepare yourselves to be blown away by this (“this” is actually just a teaser because youtube doesn’t have the official video up yet), which I’m sure will be on heavy rotation now:

The statement from Vampire Weekend that “we’re not gonna be scared to make music that is weird or unusual or immediately accessible” amuses me. If you guys do that with your next CD, my hat’s off to you. I won’t believe you have unusual or not immediately accessible music until I hear it, though. Or until it alienates MTV’s viewers.

Is Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio somehow related to Scott Baio, a.k.a., Bob Lob Law? If so, you, sir, are a mouthful.

Visiting the land of updates, we discover that Amy Winehouse does not have tuberculosis. Nelson Mandela has no comment.

But as far as “not immediately accessible” goes, I now have an excuse to post some Gang of Four.

Thank you Youtube for allowing brilliant prose such as, “ma main man andy gill used a homosexual setup becuase he thought it gave him a more crunchy sound, like the crunch of a mans cock inside his ass hole………” to finally have a home. This unique twist on the word “asshole” reminds me of one of my favorite XKCD strips.
