Figured out what’s wrong with the Camper van Beethoven record – it’s boring, which explains why David Lowery sounds so disinterested.  The trash dismissal should be a joke along the lines of “take the skinheads sailing,” or yachting.  (“Skinflints?”  I’m thinking of Lowery hating on downloaders, though for sure I’d recommend those inclined to rip “Come down the Coast” rather than shell out fifteen dollars for the record.)

Later: “Golfing” scans better.  Also, Dawn Richard is of Haitian-Creole descent, so the pronunciation of her last name isn’t pretentious at all, just New Ah-lins.  (Saw that episode of Chopped night with contestants from that city and was touched, reminded by how wonderful the south can sometimes – sometimes – be.)
