I know exactly what you're going to say. Doesn't bother me at all. Sigur Ros in concert (make sure you stay past the initial feedback part):

Quite nice, I'm surprised to say. Nice dramatic build. Operatic, even. Perfectly accessible, unless I'm missing something. Not what at all what I was gritting my teeth preparing to endure.Do you like these guys or they too New Age:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_Forest
Thought I recognized the name and then saw that they were the background for the famous-for-fifteen-minutes "Where the Hell is Matt", which I liked. Too Euro-French for me. Operatic is the word. Big, anthemic stuff.
Too "Euro-French"?From LA's number 1 euro/francophile? You're a hard man to pin down.
European pop music is terrible. If you don't believe me, follow this link to the "Francosonik Top 10" and listen to as many of the songs as you can stand:http://www.lemouv.com/evenement/le-top-10-de-francosonik
Glad I didn't read this first:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-rock"Post-rock is a subgenre of rock music characterized by the influence and use of instruments commonly associated with rock, but using rhythms and "guitars as facilitators of timbre and textures" not traditionally found in rock. Post-rock musicians typically produce instrumental music. Don Caballero and Tortoise were among the more prominent bands described as post-rock in the 1990s, but their styles are very different, despite being instrumental bands centered on guitars and drums. As such, the term has been the subject of backlash from listeners and artists alike.[ Although firmly rooted in the indie or underground scene of the 1980s and early '90s, post-rock's style often bears little resemblance musically to that of contemporary indie rock...."
And BTW: "I know exactly what you're going to say"? Clearly not.
You're right. I know what you'll say about a certain type of brunette, but not Icelandic art-rock sung in falsetto in a made-up language accompanied by a lead guitar played with a cello bow....
Ah, see. Your mistake was assuming I'd be responding to those details rather than the overall effect.
I had underestimated you. Are the brunettes a question of details or the overall effect?
Both, obviously, to answer your snide rhetorical question as if it was serious. You're right: The brunette in question is pretty much a perfect storm of many of the characteristics (details) that David has always liked. Including her ability to kick ass, about which, perhaps, the less said the better. But I am stung, sir, indeed wounded, by the implication that my taste is still rigidly constrained within those narrow limits. I'm only watching "Modern Family," for example, because I think the kids are funny.
And because you support the right of marriage for gay men. And because you were a big "Arrested Development" fan.
