Complete with plentiful mistakes, shambolic harmonies and MASSSSSSIVE SEX APPEAL.
and a laptop solo
i like Alcxxpops' Jazz Hands bit.
with the laptop n snare drum
Now get some proper fucking jobs.
i THINK that's right - might be no underscore if it doesn't work.
next week you'll be listening to laptop breakcore.
But I tell you what, the first link in the 'related' box is ace-o.
Serious omnichord action ahoy!
but in that respect it reminded me of something that might be on Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs. It wasn't a shambolic harmony at all; that had it been an edgier melody Junkplanet might have had a great song instead of merely a good one. At its best something like a Blur demo for Modern Love Is Rubbish and at its worst UK Unemployment numbers need yet more improvement (I jest but what I want to imply is that the song needs a little elbow grease. Fuck around with the production, try a violin here a fuzz guitar there. Junkplanet isn't going to succeed with Elliot Smith acoustics but rather needs the bells and whistles of a Sonic Youth). Add a couple Canadian musicians, take the advice Clinic's Internal Wrangler offers, and Junkplanet will be able to give Guillemots a run for their money; Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene haven't got to worry about Junkplanet just yet, but the above song is a step in the right direction. 7.0/10.
2nd Opinion: My girlfriend, btw, has pretty good taste....obviously, DUH! ;-) I gave her no background on Junkplanet whatsoever. Her comments and grade: "Uhm, sounds like they recorded it in a garage. But I like it. They got something. I'd give them a 7 point 75 ...or that might be a little high. Ah, yeah 7.75/10.0
There ya have it, Mr. Brainlove. A couple of pretty darn good mini-reviews for yer band. Good luck!
it's a pagan wanderer lu song, not junkplanet... me and chris (junkplanet) have never sung or played on it before... it was just some impromptu fun before andy went back to manchester after his gig.
Actual Junkplanet for your review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opbRqdaKk-U
