*****

They remain one of the few hipster “cult” bands who deserve the (sorta) mainstream success that they’ve (sorta) acquired. But how “cult” is a band, really, when your last two CDs lived at the upper realms of Billboard’s Top 200 album charts? Their 2007 release, NEON BIBLE, debuted and peaked at #2 – and their recent Grammy Winning ALBUM OF THE YEAR release, THE SUBURBS, debuted at the zenith of the charts.

I had a hearty laugh (as I always do at a hipster’s expense) at this video.
