Kanye West Is Out of His Mind

November 10th, 2010 · 1 Comment

As amusing as Kanye West can be sometimes… just… no: “I honestly think Coldplay are on the same level as The Beatles. In 30 years, when Coldplay are old men, people will look back and say, ‘These guys were more talented than The Beatles.’” Um, no they won’t. I can’t even get into how wrong […]

Pink slams Kanye

September 15th, 2009 · Comments Off on Pink slams Kanye

Death Cab for Cutie take stand against Auto-Tune

February 10th, 2009 · Comments Off on Death Cab for Cutie take stand against Auto-Tune

While the sound of Ben Gibbard’s nasally, nerdy voice can grate on one’s nerves in high doses, I still appreciate the fact that it’s not Auto-Tuned to death. Gibbard and his Death Cab for Cutie bandmates are taking a public stance against Auto-Tune, which corrects vocal pitch problems for most major label singers. The band […]
