This whole thing is getting beyond bearable. I guess that would make it unbearable. Why must every damn Pitchfork band have an over-the-top image? Like that cow from Les Savvy Fav or Kayne's shades or whatever the hell Of Montreal's doing to garner attention or Santogold or the fucking Fuck Buttons. (And enough of the expletives and animals in your names.)
Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young or hell, even The Ramones or The Clash didn't have to shove some rehearsed look down your throat round-the-clock. You're making music. Yes, the images help create a bigger picture of the act, but what the majority of these bands are putting forth is just that, an act.
Confession: I think I love Vampire Weekend.
