Cults has some new video for "D'ya know what I mean?", and I am not sure if it is documentary-style, or if it is a high-budget love story involving 3rd degree burns to the entire body of Cults lead singer Brian Oblivion. If it is real, all we can do is #pray for the speedy recovery of Brian Oblivion during this difficult time.

Do u know if these r for real? Will he play on stage with them?
OMG! My BF is #on_fire, and I don't mean that he is playing the popular video game NBA Jam.
Do u wish u could come 2 Maddie's window? [via riding Melissa Ethridge 1990s female lezbo alt rock waves]
I feel like I will never know what true buzz love is until I form a buzzband with my significant other, and we learn abt the toll that the neverending life on the road takes on us.
Do u <3 or h8 this song?
Do u wish u could be in a relevant buzz couple?
R u worried abt Brian Oblivion?
Does Maddie look good, bb?
Have u ever suffered 3rd degree buzz burns?
May u have a healthy recovery, restoring ur indie hunky good looks back 2 normality.
Every day, buzzbands are searching for a chill website that can host their MP3s and allow them to build an online brand where fans can find them and easily learn abt their music and tour dates. Myspace used to be the #1 buzzband webspace presence, but now bands started 2 use bandcamp, just bc it is the trendy thing to do before the site fails to monetize and buzzbands start 2 use a new platform. Oh well, not sure how I feel abt the name 'bandcamp' anyways.
The popular bandcamp website is now involved in a MASSIVE buzzband scandal involving one of their most famous indie buzzbands--Cults.
Apparently Bandcamp forced Cults to charge people to download their songs (See 6:10 mark of video). They allegedly hit a certain download number, and Bandcamp wanted Cults to charge people to download their MP3s so that bandcamp could take a cut of their buzz bucks. Brian Oblivion, lead guitarist of Cults, went on record saying "FUCK BANDCAMP." As much as we'd like to glorify online tools that help buzzbands build websites even if it on a crappily-subdomained URL, we must acknowledge the darkside of Bandcamp, and how they might just be stealing from the buzzworthy more than they are giving to the buzzless...
Cults claims that the band would be forced to pay $75 for every 1000 free MP3 downloads. Oblivion continued... "I'm not gonna PAY for people to get it for free. I'll give it to them.
Lead singer Madeline Follin went on to say, "We are shutting our bandcamp down."
Bandcamp has yet to issue a statement on the issue, or on their business practices. This is certainly a dark day for buzzbands, but more importantly, consumers who want to legally download MP3s for free from band websites.
Do u <3 or H8 bandcamp?
Do u <3 or H8 Nardwuar? Is is gimmick 'tired' or 'fresh'?
Do the Culties look totally keut?
Will bandcamp let buzzbands buzz 4 free?
Is it fair for Bandcamp 2 expect site users 2 have 2 pay for their service? Or should everything be free 4 every1 4evr?
Who will win the Cults vs Bandcamp drama?
If u were starting a buzzband, what would u use 2 build ur web presence?
Can bandcamp 'recover' from this PR DISASTER?

Do u <3/miss the Cults BB?
I just watched some new video for the song 'Abducted' by Cults. The song is 'buzzing up the charts', and many insiders expect them to get a p4k rating that Tyler the Creator could 'only dream of.' I'm not really sure what happens in the video. If I had to guess, some bro sees this woman who he can brainwash, so then he decides to human traffick her, and the video represent some sort of metaphorical 'long journey' where he has to psychologically brainwash her in order to continue to coerce her into performing graphic acts for money. As yall know, I am a HUGE fan of benders AND human trafficking, so I can vibe 2 it.
I sorta just waited around for the band 2 show up, and then they popped up and were like 'hey.'
I just rlly want to get to know them...
They're so mysterious...
What are they all abt?
What do they do in their free time?
What kind of food do they eat?
Do they have the same hopes, fears, and dreams that non-buzzworthy humans do? Nvm. Guess I don't really want to learn as much abt buzzbands as we have learned abt Best Coast + WAVVES.
Do u <3 Cults or h8 Cults?
Do u <3 or h8 this video?
Do u think they need to really increase the Maddie Follin exposure by 800-1000%?
Have u ever been kidnapped?
Do u ever see an old lady at a grocery store and think about putting her in your trunk?
Cults is a buzzband that is buzzing hard after their hit songs "Go Outside" and "Abducted" and "You Know What I Mean"... but maybe they should change the names of those songs to "Go Outside on a Bender", "Abducted by myself because I went on a bender" and "You know what I Mean? I was on a bender, yall" after the popular 2k11 buzzband was spotted on an all-night bender, hitting up a relevant tittie bar.
The truth is, I go on regular benders, ending up in very dark places. Most nights, I'd be lucky to end up in a strip club, instead of other dark options such as:
-a Motel 6 hotel room with some1 who is getting human trafficked
-a snuff film lounge
-having to pay off drug debts [via prostitution] [via Less Than Zero]
-staying up all nite on a bender, eating a McGriddle 4 breakfast
-calling ur ex and saying u want to get back with her, but ur effed up on a bender, and the next day she shows up at your apt, and ur like 'uhh... I just wanted an emotional handjob, I wasn't REALLY trying to get back with u....'
As you can see in the above photo, lead frontman Brian Oblivion is trying to negotiate 'half off' the cover price to get into a strip club. Usually, who can pay the fallen-overweight-stripper at the front desk 'under the table.'
Here is a picture of lead singer Madeline Follin 'canoodling' with some bro...getting ready 2 bender...
Here is a buzzband member 'getting a relevant lappy' [sponsored by _____]
Here is the keut buzz couple 'canoodling', looking to get a better view of some premium 'stripper ass.' Sometimes when I am too poor to be a 'high roller' i n a strip club, I will just bring $100 in $1-bill, and 'make it last' for hours/minutes.
Best Coast was spotted inside of the relevant strip club venue, but I am not sure if she was 'working at the titter' or if this was just earlier in the night when they were bendering together, but then she fell asleep [via dank vibes]
Here is indie QT 'Maddie Follsies' carrying a drum that probably has tons of bender-wave drugs in it.
I'm not sure if she got a lap dance... 'On paper' [via porn], acts of bisexuality [via girls] 'turn me on'... but when it comes to a relationship, I have complex sexual ownership + insecurity issues that probably couldn't handle it if I found out that one of my fave indie female celebs 'swung both ways.' I want a relationship with a top tier female indie celeb... Not a 'dark sexual fling...'
It's difficult being in a buzzband. Every night u end up somewhere different, every night, there are tons of floozies who would love 2 'take u home' and get a slice of ur buzzworthy genitalia. That's why u have to on a bender. U have to 'get up'... but then u 'come down hard' [via Charlie Sheen].
Lord knows I've had my dark nights...
What is the darkest night of ur life?
Have u ever gone on a krazie, buzzworthy bender?
Do u think more buzzbands should go on 'krazie benders'?
Is Cults trying to build a 'bad-boy' image?
Do u have an 'tips' for 'looking like a baller' and 'saving some $$$ in a strip club'?
Did you know that most strippers would be willing to give a free lappy and a VIP handjob in exchange for a few key bumps of cocaine?
Cults are getting put thru 'the buzz cycle' from any magazine blog outlet possible as every1 is trying to 'invest' in their buzz stock since they are 'at the top of the post-lofi pop' genre. They did some fashion shoot for New York Times Magazine where they wore 'rich ass clothes 4 rich ppl.' Madeline Follin is wearing a dress that is more expensive than a poor person car.
Brian is wearing a Tom Ford sweater, $990. Go to tomford.com. Madeline is wearing a Burberry Prorsum vest, $1,995. Go to burberry.com. Valentino dress, $5,900. Call (212) 772-6969. Makeup on Madeline: bareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation in Fairly Light, $25.00. NARS Bangkok Pure Matte Lipstick, $25. Go to narscosmetics.com.
I wonder if they got to 'keep the clothes.' Maybe they could pawn them for buzzworthy instruments and bleepy bloop machines. From what I have read, a buzzband makes at least $40k per show (in buzz dollars), but I don't know the conversion rate between buzz dollars and $USD (or the_Euro).
Do u think they look 'mad keut'?
Is Cults 'the #1 buzzband of 2k11' or do u consider them a 2k10 buzzband?
Will Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion 'play up their alt celebrity relationship' just to get more headlines [via the BestWavves model]?
Do u think she should change her name 2 'Maddie Oblivion' just so they sound more Culty?
R u 'excited' about Cults' 'first album', or are u already getting anxious about their sophomore follow-up?
Is "Go Outside" the 'greatest MP3 that Gorilla Vs. Bear has ever posted'?
Has Madeline Follin moved 'to the top' of the indie QTs power rankings?
