Surely some people know who I'm talking about, yes/no?
Thoughts on the new album?
Called 'Random Spirit Lover'. It's leaked all over the internets already.
I liked 'Shut Up..' but it was nowhere near as good as everyone made it out to be to me.
Have you heard of 'Frog Eyes'?
The new one sort of sounds like a 'Frog Eyes' record... a bit.
It's got some amazing tracks, some of the best of the year in fact. But the album is about 10mins too long and has some filler because of it.
But yes, about twice as good as 'Shut Up..' overall, IMO.
got into them after having the album for a few months (shut up that is, not new one). prefer frog eyes and swan lake have a couple of excellent songs too. but that new sunset song that sounds like the balamory theme is excellent.
might go see sunset on halloween...might be fun
(Like I do)
Then you'll probably prefer the new album over 'Shut Up..'
'shut up im dreaming's title track is the best song krug has ever done, nothing on this album comes close. I wish he would spend more time on wolf parade, same goes for boeker
Is the best thing he's done with Sunset Rubdown to be honest.
But I agree Krug and Boeckner are much better together as Wolf Parade instead of indulging in their side projects.
I have it on good authority a new album can be expected by them next summer. Autumn at the latest =]
I thought it was gonna be early 2008. I really liked the handsome furs album at first but now I think it is really tedious, I miss wolf parade :(
thats from Dan himself....
There was talk of an early '08 release date but with Dan releasing 'Plague Park' and Spencer releasing 'Random Spirit Lover' it looks like they'll be busy touring for a bit.
They work really fucking hard it seems.
wolf parade seemed to burst out of nowhere with an incredible album but lost all momentum, I think if it takes them that long their hearts can't really be in it and it won't be up to much. Has anyone heard final fantasy online: the internet?
I just hope the wait will be worth it.
I recently downloaded an awesome bootleg of a show they did in 2005 supporting Arcade Fire in Seattle.
The sound quality is superb and they sound like they were on top from. Thats been whetting my appetite a little bit recently.
but handsome furs album is really good
has been on constent rotation on my cd player for the past month or so, best album of 07 by a long way
but it's definitely in my top 10 of the year.
sunset rubdown are in my top five favourite bands.
Best Krug project for me by miles.
that found me bending to the ground!
I love Random Spirit Lover so much, it all bleeds together so well.
it bleeds together better then Hissing Fauna, thats an amazing achievment
So much so that I struggle to find my favourite parts a lot of the time!
Does anyone like Magic Weapon? It's some non Krug members of Sunset Rubdown as well as members of Think About Life and Shapes and Sizes. Pretty exciting on first listen!
