Catastrophe Keeps Us Together

I know they're not cool anymore, and I know Pitchfork hates them, but I like Rainer Maria, damnit. Got their new album Catastrophe Keeps Us Together yesterday and it's good. You can hear the lead track on their website. That is all.

Welcome to getting old, where your favorite bands are washed up and the cool kids lambaste your taste.

I was recently ridiculed on a board for being "the kind of dude who probably still listens to DJ Shadow."

Hooray for loving bands that "aren't cool anymore"!!!

Welcome to getting old, where your favorite bands are washed up and the cool kids lambaste your taste.

I think that happens around 25-26 years old (um, that's about when I bought ...Endtroducing, which puts me in Anon's category). I'm not exactly sure how old Matthew is, but he may have a year or two of still being one of the cool kids listening to hip music.

I don't love it like I love Long Knives Drawn, but I like it a lot. I'm in the middle of posting a bunch of videos from their recent Madison show at my site, if anyone's interested.

My last band played our last show with Rainer Maria quite a few years ago. Somehow, I forget that that makes them an "old" band, but it really does. I still love them, too. The new album is amazing. Screw the idiots at Pitchfork.

Dude, as much as I enjoy perusing pitchfork, those folks are as arbitrary as anything else. I don't understand why they've become the indie bible, except for a certain completist strain, one that has always run through the music nerd world, that pitchfork embraces. Anyway, Rainer Maria is pretty sweet and let no man say otherwise.
