Droste is aware that this kind of blog buzz has limits. "The people who listen to the radio probably don't read Pitchfork or Stereogum or the New Yorker." Which is a subtle way of admitting that indie rock is music for the educated upper classes. He's not shy about wishing that wasn't the case. "If Top 40 radio stations started playing 'Two Weeks,' that would be a huge coup for us."
That's a pipe dream, and Droste knows it, but who cares? Veckatimest deserves all the airplay it can get.
