Love the pictures wish u had more.
I'm sure Iceage are sick and tired of everyone asking them about the Nazi accusations. Iceage have addressed this in multiple interviews and every time they've said that they are not Nazis and don't have any sympathies for facism. Hell, their drummer is Jewish.
OMG, there's a brown person in one of the bands. How did that happen.

Sorry, I also agree with Michael Tapp.
The layout here is really confusing. The slideshow is distracting and misleading. Maybe all you need to do is title it "XXXX band Slideshow." Just a thought.
I wish I didn't have to see photos of these bands before listening to their music. I might have otherwise enjoyed it. Save for Parquet Courts, whom I know and love, these people all look a bit like assclowns.
I'm with Michael Tapp. Your slideshow blows

"Hipsters just reappropriate other fads from other ages... But there's no new culture around it; it's all borrowing from old cultures without using any of the actual principles the culture stood for. It's just rehashing without the original glow. A so-so glow."
@Michael Tapp: Aw, you seem easily frustrated. Some advice:
1) If it's the actual slideshows that are bothering you -- like, the ones where we're just showing you outtakes of each band's individual photo shoot -- it seems like it would probably be really easy to just not click on them, right? Like, just move your mouse away from where they appear on the page, and then you just won't have to worry about them, I don't think.
2) If it's the admittedly dicier situation where we've placed each band's photo/interview/music sample on a different page, well, I don't feel like it's SUCH a crazy thing for us to have done, but still: we try to be mindful of the people who feel differently, which is why we still include a link to show the "full text" of the article. If you click on that (right beside the "next" link), you'll see the whole thing on just one long page.
If it's something else, let me know, and we'll try to work through it together.
More frustrating slideshows, please.

I agree with Steve's point that the album format is still a relevant, and most useful, standard for the music industry. But I also see Jeff's point that an album *release* is no biggie, even among music fans. There's no threat it will sellout at the record store, you can hear it/buy it whenever, so time or inaccessibility is not a critical factor building anticipation.
