Sufjan Battles Vampire Weekend In An Indie-Rock Beef That Could Not Be Wussier Even If Everyone Involved Was Wearing Crinolines
Apparently Sufjan Stevens isn't too keen on the musical stylings of Vampire Weekend, a fact we learned because someone, not even affiliated with Stereogum, actually sat down to ask Stevens a question for some reason. Stevens said:
"Sometimes I worry that the ever-increasing trend toward excessive innovation has pushed the art and music world into a slapstick exhibition of dog breeding, generating increasingly newer, more contemporary fashions: gothic folk, for one. Or Afro-beat Ivy League pop."
Right about now, you sort of wish that a Rick Rubin or Steve Albini would happen along to suggest that everyone involved might want to choke up on a piping hot platter of moose taints.
