s'bit good, isn't it? it's like wolf parade, but lo-fi and cheap sounding and not really like wolf parade at all!
Dumb Animals and What we Had are really haunting. I love this album so much!
it kind of reminds me of the solo Thom Yorke album. Not the way it sounds but just the difference between the guy on his own and with his band.
where you're coming from with that!
which wolf parade man I like the most
you can't go back on the krug!
we totally bonded with Dan over a pint didn't we 'Bund?
he's taken our 'constructive criticisms' on board. and whatever else we said.
they've played Modern World at every gig since
...at handling criticism.
Back when the Wolf Parade album leaked in June '05, we got together and emailed the band to say that Brock made a complete fuck up of the mixing, and turned them from having some edge to being all poppy...... surprisingly they replied:
I'm in Wolf Parade, and I agree completely. We probably all agree with you. Thanks for the honesty and all that, and don't worry, it's not being taken the wrong way. It's a little heartbreaking, yes, for you have confirmed our own insecurities about the
record, but a little broken heart goes a long when one is schrelpin' the tunes, bra. So thanks.
That album could be way better, but all this shit happened and we just needed to get it over and done with. We made the best mixes we could out of the tracks we had recorded (we mixed the thing 3 times) and then all these wheels were already in motion and money had been spent and blah blah blah. There was no
more time or money. And really, it's just a record, so buck up you big baby. If we can live with it, so can you.
Just do what I do: Don't listen to it, ever, and hope that the next one is better. In fact, just pretend that this record doesn't even exist and that our next record is the first full length. We are all really excited about the next one, which we will do ourselves and not in a studio. So don't give up on us just yet, and try to untwist your panties from the bunch that they are currently in. This record is coming out whether any of us like it or not. Thanks for liking the other stuff, though.
Obviously, Pitchfork then went on to review it, and for some reason people creamed their pants over it. I still stand by my assertion that the EPs were really special, and the album was a let down in comparison.
The fact that Brock has just been bottled on stage was nothing to do with me guv.
some of them are on it at least, but you might have heard it elsewhere too :-)
it might have to be my next purchase.
Is the Swan Lake album good? I've not heard owt by them.
not too fussed about the rest
Was a bit sceptical, because I'm not the biggest fan of Boeckner's stuff on Apologies, but it is indeed the goodness.
I'd not heard the name before today, and then I saw this thread while listening to HF covering Liars:
I really love this. It sounds kind of like Springsteen fronting Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, but, y'know, not. (There's a reason I'm not a music journalist).
