look nick! guitars!

so i was accused yesterday of exclusively favoring music with synths and/or a drum machine. if that were totally true i would have no problem admitting it. ...ok that's not true. i would have a problem with being a 100% bass-head, just like i would have a problem listening to any genre of music exclusively. in the interest of balance i wish to present my case for a non-synth-based artist.

exhibit a: grizzly bear.

lovvvve grizzly bear. last time i saw them i'm pretty sure i blacked out from concentration and emotion. i'm seeing the grizz and beach house tonight at the palladium and no band with a moog is better at...

oh wait, they do use keyboards.

fuck it. didn't radiohead permanently destroy the walls and restrictions regarding "rock" music back in the 90's? i like my rock n' roll with a korg synth and effects pedals. ...or at least a nice electric keyboard and some reverb.

here's an unreal duet with victoria legrand of beach house. when they perform together tonight i'm going to melt.
