"The New Pornographers is making music whose influences are fun to figure out—I hear some Abba in the harmonies, some ELO in the keyboards. On other songs there’s everything from the playful pompous-rock of Queen to the soulful harmonies of the Mamas and the Papas emanating from the contributions of strong vocalist Kathryn Calder, among others. Which means, ultimately, that this band is creating its own sound, using the time-tested pop-culture method of picking and choosing from anything and everything, recombined for original effects.”

BEN. Thesis: MPP == ENTRY LEVEL HIPSTER GARBAGE. Discuss.

what is mpp?

Merriweather Post Pavilion by Animal Collective, the album he’s holding. The one with the song Grass on it that Ben plays when he’s mad at me (because it makes me gnash my teeth and pull my hair out). Aka what I will call ENTRY LEVEL HIPSTER GARBAGE.
ETA: Ben just informed me that Grass is actually on the album Feels. More ENTRY LEVEL HIPSTER GARBAGE.

THIS ESCALATED QUICKLY

From Harvard to hobo, sit-ins to concert halls, Pete Seeger’s plan was simple: to lead a rallying cry at the front lines of justice, freedom, and peace, and to forge a new link in the chain, stronger than the last, for the next generation of folksingers. How best to begin this monumental task? Simply by teaching children to sing old folk songs.
