» SFB says: To put it simply, Pitchfork gave an early release of theirs a great review, then pulled out the pitbulls (er, pugs) when their actual major-label album came out. The site later explained itself, claiming it was a too-much-too-fast situation for the band, and that the album didn’t hold up. The potential parallel Lana Del Rey could face is that her early material got built up by a number of major blogs, and the backlash has already started. Will say this much: “Video Games” is a great song and it’d be a shame for the hype to overshadow the talent. — Ernie @ SFB
She sings, ‘They know that Santa’s on his way,’ as though ‘Santa’ were actually a plague of locusts. She should’ve recorded this while drunk.The best line from Pitchfork’s funny review of the new She & Him Christmas album. Second best, in reference to Zooey Deschanel’s National Anthem performance: “Seriously, no worse than B- for vocal, and, okay, D+ for the dress.”
