I've tried but I just don't GET it...
I think its beautiful music for dreaming to.
It's fucking radd! It sounds beautiful and treacly in texture, tone and melody... what is there to get?
... not algebra - there's nothing to "get"!
If you don;t enjoy it, you don't enjoy it and there's nothing wrong with that.
I really enjoy Atlas Sound, personally.
I've only listened to it a few times though. I think it's one of those that'll I'll play at some point in the coming months and I'll love it.
Took me ages to get into the first Deerhunter album but I think that's awesome now.
the demos on the blog are great, really lofi and sound fresh, but the album sounds so cold and overthought.. its a shame really, but i reckon he'll get it right in a few albums time..
the demos are the complete opposite.
listening to it again its just the vocals that i found flat.. maybe i listened to cryptograms too much.
have you heard You're so fine from one of the blog EP things? thats how i hoped it'd be.
im going to listen to the album again... maybe im wrong
I picture Cox and Robert Pollard (GBV) somewhere in the future, sitting in wheelchairs and arguing who wrote more brilliant songs.
i really like cryptograms and wasnt so sure about microcastle, but its starting to grow on me....
heard weird era cont. once and thought it was great, but i deleted it after feeling guilty... im going to buy it!
calvary scars II is amazingly good!
I saw Deerhunter there though. Next time round I will see Atlas Sound for sure.
nice and all but could really do with some sort of visuals.
Animal Collective were pretty amazing though.
...next Wednesday. Thought I'd mention this as I haven't seen it publicised anywhere yet.
Hope the sound problems that people mentioned for Fucked Up aren't present.
