Charlotte: So do you think it’s worth approximately $50 for me to see the Monsters of Folk by myself?
Adam: No. But I currently have an unemployed brain, so take that into consideration.
Charlotte: I’m basically broke. So nevermind.
Adam: Did you get that album?
Charlotte: Yessir. Yim Yames.
Does Monsters of Folk have an album?
Monsters of Folk – Whole Lotta Losing
Adam: Yeah, it just came out.
Charlotte: WELL. Goodbye, approx. $10.
Charlotte: Is it all covers?
Adam: No, I don’t think any of it is covers.
Charlotte: Beat me to it.
Oh I was confused. They play their own stuff (Bright Eyes and My Morning Jacket stuff) live too.
Adam: Haha, M. Ward can go screw himself?
Charlotte: Yes he can, as long as he continues trying to trick the world into thinking Zooey Deschanel ISN’T tone deaf.
She & Him – Sentimental Heart (buy)
Oh her voice is so bad. Every time I see that cotton commercial she did, I think, “People buy cds of this?”
Charlotte: I KNOW.
People think this is how old-timey voices are supposed to sound. And they’re not! There are good old-timey singers (like Jolie Holland) not getting their due and this b is hawking cotton with that whining.
Jolie Holland – Stubborn Beast (buy)
Adam: Is that what it is? That people think she’s old-timey?
I just figured she was popular enough to cloud peoples’ judgment of her voice. Being the adorable pixie deliverer and all.
Charlotte: She has that affected tone in her voice. Trying to croon.
And also she’s pretty, and pretty people get to do whatever they want! Everyone knows!
Adam: Haha, slightly prettier than Scarlett Johansson, whose music is equally slightly less-successful.
Charlotte: You think she’s prettier than Scarlett Johansson?
Adam: I do, in fact.
Poor Scarlett Johansson. No one wants to hear you sing!
Adam: Not even Tom Waits songs. The ultimate indie-dude magnet.
Scarlett Johansson – Anywhere I Lay My Head (buy)
Charlotte: Teaming up with Pete Yorn didn’t work neither – next time, jump on a bandwagon that can write good music!
Ya burn’t Scarlett.
Adam: Hahaha, ouch.
Charlotte: I actually like her, what am I saying.
I’m full of piss and vinegar today.
Adam: I thought that was a burn on Pete Yorn.
Charlotte: Well burn them both.
It was. I am comfortable sending bad vibes his way.
Adam: Haha. He’s yet another person whose work I don’t know well enough to dislike.
When I try to remember that one hit song he had, all that pops up in my brain is “Back on the Chain Gang” by The Pretenders.
Charlotte: Hahahahahaha. Life on a Chain. Almost!
His first album was really not bad. His second album was lousy.
When he can get a hook it’s good.
Pete Yorn – Life on a Chain (buy)
Adam: Then screw that guy too. I’m willing to hate based on recommendations.
