just ordered hug the coast, finally..
anyone got the new one? luv for this band?
up there with Sonic Youth and Fugazi.
the new album grew on me a lot more after seeing loads of the songs live.
they were awesome on the tour a few weeks ago, played basically a greatest hits set with a few off the new record.
the production on hug the coast is amazing, j robbins is a genius. i listened to that album on repeat for about 4 months when it came out.
i've not heard the new one; wasn't too impressed with hug the coast. everything else they've done is brilliant.
i didn't see them on their recent tour which i'm pretty annoyed about as i don't think they'll tour again.
everything about their back catalogue is a big amazing. Seriously talented guys.
You should try Avast! and Metronomes, both are good offshoots of the band.
where should I start album-wise?
Rebuild the Pier, On the Enjoyment of Unpleasant Places or the Chez Chef EP
