"Just Says What It's Got to Say and Then Gets Out. That's All You Need"

"I don't think millions of kids are going to want to be Bradford Cox from Deerhunter, you know? He's got a debilitating illness. He's 6'5". He’s super-skinny and kind of geeky. But he's very cool. I don't think kids want to be like him. I honestly think the days of somebody as culturally important as Bob Dylan hitting the mainstream are gone. I just don't know if that kind of poetic intelligence will ever meet the mass market again. All you need to do is look at photographs from Coachella. It's like the festival of the 1%."
