big big :D
there a great band, easy to listen to, also you may not like it but botch, there previous band were brilliant as well.
They're lovelly and christmassy
Menos el Oso and Planet of Ice are wintery-tastic. Been listening to Highly Refined Pirates today, which is a bit more, Octobery!
Menos el Oso is one of the most chilled out, summery albums I own! Every track's about alcohol, sex and beaches! (with the exception of Hooray)
Is it coincidence that that's the best track?
personally, I love all of it
I took them skiing with me and NOTHING beats flying down a mountain with 'the drilling' on.
I was into this band when they were NOTHING and being fought over by the likes of Undergroove.
I don't like them now.
The Dismemberment Plan do the same thing better.
And Botch were better.
I listened to We Are The Romans the other week.
I've fucked myself out of them - now they sound like a budget Down I Go. :( ... :)
Next album to investigate?
My personal pick would be their first... which is called... something.
im not suggesting anyone and everyone who likes them does so along those lines, but to me they are the perfect example of a typical matt-grey underground indie outfit who elitist sorts like to cling to whilst imagining the reason they aren't bigger is because they're too "challenging" or "experimental", when in fact the reason they aren't bigger because is because they're unremittingly tedious. OMFG METER SHIFTS
whose name is a gigantic put-off.
