Old Enough To Know Better: 15 Years Of Merge Records. After listening to this 3CD set a couple times this week, trying to find swearing (that's what writing a review for the radio station consists of, really), I'm ready to tell indie to go fuck itself. Except for Superchunk's "Cool" and Spoon's "Decora." Oh, and East River Pipe, who's really adult contemporary.

Three CDs of this malarkey. Jesus. There are people whose ears feast solely on this earnest, sloppy, mumblemouth clomp. At least when I WAS one I was spending a lot of time digging deep into the Spin Alternative Record Guide canon and watching plenty of MTV. Oh no, that Music Tapes songs again.
