they're not even very good.
I was expecting soemthing really edgy the ammount of times i'd heard the name. Wishy washy, select on ipod... delete.
From what I've heard it sounds like girls music.
they're bloody awful
They seem fairly average. Same goes to Yeasayer, what's it all about?
but they leave a nasty Magic Numbers taste in my mouth.
That sounds yuck.
and play faster.
on a hott summers day it's perfect, it makes sense then... however in other contexts it doesn't work so well. They are really good live though if not a tad dull, the vocals make up for this though and I believe they can grow into GREAT artsists, however I feel I will forget about the album come autum time.
and bought their album and think it's pretty good.
heard them for the first time last night. Can't say they were that good.
Follows! Yeasayer? My friend put me onto them and vampire weekend and whilst it's not bad music, it's not amazing either.
The next band he put me onto was The Explorers Club who ;lasted a minute on my headphones. if you are gonna do Beach Boy rips offs... well don't. they've done it before. You don;t need to write songs exactly like them, i mean exactly!
Wild Beast but only just...
Pitchfork report SXSW festival every year, they see a couple of bands who are half decent and come back and go wild about them. Wild Beasts is a name ive heard bounded about... :(
who everyone was manically frothing over last month.
I actually like the FF album though, just not the associated clamouring to declare undying love for them. They're a youngish band who have just released their first album. Where's Michael fucking Winner when you need him?
what Jack_El_Biscuit said!
AND My Morning Jacket
I don't mind Fleet Foxes, but editors should share out some of their column inches to Dennis Wilson's album.
his voice to stop himself getting lonely. Hahahaha
Anyone remember Midlake from last year? Same shit really.
shite like Johnny Foreigner any day of the week.
FF have a great sound, but not many great songs as yet. And they are certainly impressive live.
It all really comes down to your tolerance of beardie music.
or folkie/hippie beards.
I have very low tolerance of folky beard stuff.
they are great
Mainly due to the fact that I like the sounds they make and the album and live show fills me with glee.
If you dont like them then thats fine.
write an album so people can hype your band more? please :)
