have you glanced at or read Hot Press lately? My God it gets worse by the month. it appears to be written by 12-year olds, although that's probably an insult to 12-year olds. i read a review of an animal collective gig there and the writer wrote something like 'the first one was a weird, noodly one,so was the second song, the third was a bit more melodic but still noodly...' shocking.
and they keep giving reviews to that bellend olaf tyaransen, a wannabe hunter s thompson who clearly is not even into music, and whose main function is to ask interviewees how much drugs they take
