Thank You announce new record Golden Worry on Thrill Jockey, but why would those nice young men consort with such hooligans?

Those Thank You boys are such nice young men. Just so polite and always so punctual with the church service. They’re the moral beacons of the Baltimore community and they can expect a nice batch of cookies from me whenever they want some. Nice, nice boys.

But those Thrill Jockey kids. I know, if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all, but I just can’t help myself. Those folks are bad news. They’re always… jockeying thrills. No, I don’t know what it means either, but I know I don’t like it! And they’re always signing sweet Baltimore bands and corrupting them. Those Future Islands boys used to be so nice.

Oh, I’m just worried about Thank You. When they told me over tea that they were putting out their new album, Golden Worry, through Thrill Jockey, I nearly dropped my antique porcelain teacup. I just don’t see why they’d want to associate with… those types. Still, I’m sure it’ll be a wonderful album. They were telling me how it would be out January 25 and about all the wonderful poly-rhythmic drumming and post-punk sounds it was going to have. It all just sounded lovely.
