INDIE EAR MADNESS: 2nd Round (East Region)

Posted by on


11 Tim Fite vs. 3 Moby
Maybe underestimating Tim Fite, Moby came into this contest with just two turntables (telling his full-on band to stay home). What was also a little confusing was that Moby began spinning slow-tempo chill-out music. Apparently he had stayed out late the night before and didn’t even realize what time it was–he thought he was spinning an early-morning after-party instead of competing in the Second Round of Indie Ear Madness. Tim Fite was on-point as usual and managed to score his second upset victory of the tournament.

1 Vampire Weekend vs. 8 Thurston Moore
Despite their young age and “lack of experience”, the Ivy Leaguers from Vampire Weekend are sounding amazingly tight in this tournament. In their Second Round match-up against Thurston Moore, they were even backed by a live string section. Thurston Moore’s acoustic ballads lost out to the happy African beats of Vampire Weekend.

12 Strike Anywhere vs. 4 Nada Surf
Richmond, VA’s punk-rock stalwarts looked very impressive, but the experience and chemistry of Nada Surf was a little too much for them to handle. When Nada Surf needs to, they can really rock out. What surprised everyone, especially Strike Anywhere, is when Nada Surf busted out some Ramones cover songs.

7 The Last Shadow Puppets vs. 2 Gnarls Barkley
One of the more intriguing match-ups of the Second Round, since both groups are technically side-projects (although Gnarls Barkley isn’t feeling much like a side-project these days). The chemistry between Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo seemed to be more fluid than that of Alex Turner (Artic Monekys) and Miles Kane (The Rascals). The Last Shadow Puppets showed a lot of promise, but the “round mound of rebound”, Gnarls Barkley, was just too strong on the boards today.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
