This is great news. Happy to see Adam Gnade on there. Maybe Jonquil for the other support? Anybody going to all of these dates?
I've got some ... um ... heat over on the messageboard for typing this, but I stand behind my original statement
i'm not a lezzer or anything but the part about the girls' cum dripping down their legs is kind of hot:
"girls with long hair dance barefoot, grinding their hips into invisible stone statue cocks of pagan gods ’til their thighs drip wet — they’re getting god visions off acid tabs — and somebody plays a tuneless acoustic guitar. Stunnng, stumm, strimm, strang it goes. There’s a song there, but it’s hidden."
brilllliant. I love youthmovies when they do things like this. i love them always, but even more so when they reach out and get super creative.
Pleaaase leave this interview up so I can read it forEVER. There's a lot of substance in there. I think this is one rock journalists will be quoting back to in the future. I know I've read it multiple times
Here's some more good ones

ymss interview. older but lots of text!
I think both of these bands could very well become real big, as in major major big, so big all their "back in the day fans" turn against them. Which would be a shame, natch, but when you write songs as good as either band, you've got to expect some massive attention. I imagine Foals' debut will be huger than Youthmovies, TV stuff and all, SubPop and all, transgressive and all, Sitek and all, but I think Youthmovies will probably have a more lasting impact, as in they will be revered for for future generations as something special. Hurrah was good, Honey Slides was steller, and from what I've heard of their new songs on their myspace, Good Nature will be even better, though It's Five O Clock in America" from Honey Slides is my jaaaaam.
