Animal Nitrate in mind...

Blog rock was one thing, bands with facial hair - not really my thing, but what's all this naming your band after a wild animal?

The Deer Tracks (they are ok cos they probably live in a Scandanavian forest...)
Wolf Parade
Sea Wolf
Fleet Foxes

All this close to nature stuff is just hippy shit in disguise - we are dangerously close to returning to the deep dark days of the 70's in terms of (lack of...) musical creativity and fashion. Just because someone locked themself away in a log cabin in the middle of a forest and wrote an album wearing a lumberjack shirt doesn't mean it's any good...

It feels like 1975 all over again but I doubt they'll be another 1976 to rescue us!
