This is the correct answer. Known and popular in the mainstream with credibility amongst people who really like being known as being 'alternative'. Have good ideas and make entertaining art, but ultimately more accessible pastiches of their influences. Both are super into feet
oh it shows dave, it shows
Just because a movie is lacking in hard to decipher obscurity doesnt make it any less of a good film, it just means that its a great film in another way. That said, pulp fiction is just a great movie that can be appreciated by anyone.
Jet aren't consistently popular though, and they don't have as much of a legacy, they were a flash in the pan. Also there are countless bands that rip off retro shit, it's not enough of a parallel.
Is This It = Reservoir Dogs (Obviously their best)
Room On Fire = Pulp Fiction (Still good, not as good as their first but still just as/more loved then their first)
First Impressions of Earth = Jackie Brown (Different from their other stuff and therefore alienated by fans)
Angles = Kill Bill (Just plain silly)
Comedown Machine = Inglourious Bastards (Odd combination of humour and darkness)
Next Strokes album confirmed to be their worst.
Also maybe, but not enough output.
There's gotta be someone who fits a little better. Someone who repackages and remixes semi obscure music into something new, and releases popular but critic-respected music across multiple genres.
Weirdly, you may be right.
I thought it would have been more like someone like Ariel Pink who worked in a record store and is able to regurgitate at a moment's notice every cliche and every famous riff known to man, yet do it in a way that is novel, acclaimed and artful.
