In case there was any doubt that Adventure Time is the best show on television.
Anonymous asked: seriously get fucking over it. it seems like the entire internet that is gear focused are jocking fucking doom/stoner/sludge tones. i asked you about a different type of music besides this tuned down waste and get mocked. guess what.. your band doesn't play the music you keep sucking on the dick of.you play emotive hardcore i like it, but really dude. you are john are not these metal drone giants. metal kids laugh at you. metal is for people who like gimmicks and not music. sunn sucks.

This is all true. I sucked Stephen O’Malley’s dick for Power of the Riff tickets.
As non-eloquent as this is, I don’t totally disagree with most of this point. An og big muff or rat into a V4 may be a cool story and it may make for a good picture but you might be better off with something else if you’re playing faster than 150 bpm. And, the things is, some scripted speech about community and passion and real music and recording to tape, and dropping the mic at the same point in every set to scream your heart out at the ceiling, is just as much of a gimmick as speaker-less cabs and masked/robed band members.
Second point is spot-on. Literally every subset of loud guitar music has some kind of gimmick, whether it overtly looks like a gimmick or not. Theatrics and pageantry don’t necessarily mean corpse paint or grim robes; it can be track jackets & girl jeans or even ratty denim vests with patches & studs. We’re all clowns in different costumes, making fun of each others’ clown costumes as though we’re worlds apart and we all must adhere to one thing.
In reality, it’s childish to think that because I play in an emotive hardcore band I can’t also express a taste for “tuned down waste” or any other thing. Like…my watch list on eBay has a pedal steel and a mandolin on it, but the average person would be straight-up mental if they insisted that I had to go full-tilt into bluegrass/Americana mode to reflect some weird tribal allegiance to that genre or style.
And I honestly think that gear plays an important part in the non-musical “identity” of the doom/stoner/sludge milieu, which is probably why it’s easier to find internet gear conversations on that subject more than what pedals make for great pop-punk tone.
Fleet Foxes // Bedouin Dress // Helplessness Blues
One of the best mixes I’ve ever heard. Has to be heard on good speakers to be believed.
Pretty fluffin’ excited about this. I’m happy I get to see and play with Pathfinder again and psyched to to play with Aviator! I hope anyone in the area can make it out. And it’s only $5, you can’t beat that! Downtown Providence!! Click image for event page :3
