BEST INDIE BAND SONG FROM THE LAST TWO YEARS ABOUT JOHN BERRYMAN VOTE GO GO GO GO
if only for the sloop john b bit at the end.
although it's a pretty downbeat way to end the album.
is one of my favourite albums this year, honest!
taken me a while to get into it but it really is lovely - the 'concept', the music, the lyrics.
i can't wait to see them next month :)
I actually agree with everything you've written. Well done us!
Love to a Monster on the physical version like it does on emusic.
john berryman - most inept suicide ever?
I can't choose. As a song about John Berryman('s death), John Allyn Smyth Sails probably wins, and the second half of it is amazing. But, I think Stuck Between Stations has more far-reaching lyrical concepts and is just a perfect song in general. Boys And Girls In America = album of the year.
hmm. and Stuck Between Stations references "On The Road" as well.
SO HARD TO CHOOSE.
in the UK!
a 2006 record.
One of these bands is brilliant and one of them is awful
which one is which?
I've not heard The Hold Steady.. are they not good?
simply dreadful. It's like being smashed over the head with someone blowing a kazoo in your ear
You bloody ingrate. You are so wrong.
being wrong is considered a career there. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT MEANSSsss
You're wrong wrong wrong wrong, wrong wrong wrong wrong.
I'll go for Okkervil.
he missed the water!
