Photos of alt-J at Bottom of the Hill

12/18/2012

I wish I had something really good to say about Wildcat! Wildcat!, but I don’t. Ok I do. They did a great cover of Tears For Fears “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” but besides that they played a lot of Wes Anderson inspired 90s childhood nostalgic pop music. Yawn. I’m sorry.

I watched all four Netflix seasons Read More

When “Rehab” made Amy Winehouse American famous (you know as opposed to the rest of the world, which doesn’t really count) I wrote her off as bad pop. As a bandwagoneer, I was compelled to listen to her music when she died and joined the “27 club” this July. How pathetic that she had to Read More
