“Ugh, you promised we were gonna get good publicity.”
2009. Grizzly Bear releases a sweet collection of songs in an album called Veckatimest. Then their heads explode. With wonderfully crafted compositions of thoughtful melodies, and powerful harmonies, this record kicks you in the face, but very tenderly and lovingly.
Then, these songs popped up all over TV, and everyone in bands got jealous.
2012. Dirty Projectors teach some guy how to play air guitar. Then they record an amazing record and call it Swing Lo Magellan. Incredible virtuosic guitars, unbelievable vocal harmonies, and sweet, sweet melodies.
And every time this happens I headbang uncontrollably.
So while making my last OBA last night, I kept thinking of Charlie Brown Christmas snowflakes. So I starting making this and halfway through I realized it has probably been implanted in my brain from (JL8 creator) Yale Stewart’s sketch of a Batman/Charlie Brown. So you can blame/praise him for this gif.
