They're shit, aren't they?
A good thing i reckon they're ace. It's not music thats going to change the world or anything sure, though I maybe bored of them soon at this rate.
They're good on record, but if you're referring to the Hools Holland performance then yeah, that was piss poor. I've seen school bands better than that.
2) that performance on Jools Holland was crap
3) give them a chance
they're not english.
ergo. ITS SHITE. yeaaaaaaaaaaaah!
they sound interesting!
i came on here specifically to see if there was a thread discussing their performance. the singer has such an annoying voice and the bassist might as well not be playing cos fuck me if i can hear it making any difference whatsoever. there is no substance, its all twee and bollocks. christ. iv probably had one too many a whisky sour but blimey im annoyed that a band like that can play on jools.
yeah, bass should have been louder, and the singers vocal inflections seem a bit irritating live.
Will hold back judgement till i see them live myself.
because i'm certainly NOT going to see them live
they're so so much better that it hurts.
I just got the MGMT album on promo as well. Couple of killer tracks on that...
are boring compared to VW
Yeasayer are much better than VW, that's not to say VW aren't good though
They're not THAT good..
but Born Ruffians are kinda similar and much much better than VW
Just rubbish. Completely dull, the greyest of greys.
they have pop hooks. I confess to walking along humming that guitar riff and then going "hey hey hey hey"
but they're literally shit. They fit wayyyyy too perfectly into the current fashion music scene. Makes them look horrible.
They're performance of Jools last night was weak.
Yes, they're getting hype
Yes, it's not all deserved
Yes, they are still really not that bad
Yes, they are also not that brilliant either, but have a few good songs.
Get over yrselves.
so what? we are just expressing our opinions
inebriation prompted my little rant, but i still stand by it.
i dont think we need to get over ourselves though. anyway, i will say no more.
they're the first band in years that i've got excited about and are getting exposure!
a thousand 6th college bands around the country... maybe the album is better though
I could watch them two banging those drums for the rest of my life and never be less entertained by it than I was the first time I ever saw it.
catchy songs, something different. middle class university rock has a bizarre effect on me.
Thank you. I was beginning to think I was the only one!
I need to be less impulsive with my replying. They are shit live and they are annoying unlive.
They have unhelpful influences. The guy's voice is annoying. I dunno, I'm just riffing here.
like Paul Simon circa Graceland. Enough said.
a dripping tap when you need the toilet.
(to the lemonade)
probably undeserved, but bound to take place anyway.
and am the first to admit that I sometimes sniff at things solely for the fact that they're being spoken about.
But really, the album is wonderful. I'm pretty enamoured with it. And 'M79' is too lovely-sounding for words.
those guys are geniuses. It definitely takes a few listens of the LP though. all the way through. focused listens.
and now I'm pretty sick of it
that's usually how it happens with me and music. It takes a while for me to appreciate it. It took me until recently to finally appreciate Z for what it is, but now it's one of my very favorite records.
with lots of other music. But it just didn't happen with Vampire Weekend. well, my loss really.
and nothing more.
