paper rival announced today they're breaking up. the new frontiers also broke up about a month ago in case you missed that one. bad time to be an astoundingly good indie band. i guess the recipe is to suck a lot, be total jerks to everyone and write annoying music. then if you do that, you can be huge!

leave a comment and fill in the blanks: who's amazing and will never get popular and who's horrible and shouldn't be popular?

Boy, it's going to be awfully hard listing two of my top albums of the year with bands that have broken up being among the top. The worst part is, I've never seen Paper Rival live.

Yeah, the Paper Rival thing breaks my heart. Those guys are wonderful people who made great music and never even came close to getting their due.

Who is ignored (by the masses) and yet rules? Anathallo, Javelins, The Wrens, Dignan, The Sleeping Bulls, and Living Better Electrically just to name a few. The last two bands are Mississippi groups that have made some of the greatest music I've ever heard to literally zero national acclaim. It makes you want to saw your own legs off and just hobble around to prove a point.

To comment on the other part would perhaps be unprofessional. Har har.

That sucks about the New Frontiers...didn't know much about paper rival.

I now know of paper rival...that sucks as well. They are/were good to quite good. I also picked up Madonna's new pop heaven if you ask me. Also if you are interested, Beyonce's new album is off the chain. I'm also running for president and have a pet unicorn named Joe the plumber.
