Paperwork - Anyone heard this? Its pretty good on first listen, not heard of them before this.
out came out on monday. It's awesome, it will take me months to fully work out if it's better than Beautiful Seizure, but first impressions make me feel that it might well be.
its definatly up there with Beautiful Seizure and a little more focused.
I really want to see them live
I think I have it in my diary and thanku for reminding me.
I actually have none of their stuff. But the stuff on myspace is brilliant, I need to get these albums noooow.
Or soon, any ideas where I could get them cheapish?
maybetry the label Leaf they might have it cheaper. Amazon is usualy good though aint it.
caiman usa or similar
so is the debut.
everything's tighter, musicianship's improved in every regard (particularly the vocals and jazz drumming). as much as i love beautiful seizure, a lot of the noisier aspects were sort of redundant or not realised in the best possible where- whereas on this record it feels like they've restrained themselves and let loose in all the right places. the production's a mile better too, and they've got some really beautiful synth sounds.
its just a superb album, i'm fairly sure it'll be in my top five 2008 albums by the end of the year, and its amazing how they've come out of nowhere in the last two years with two excellent, intelligent, creative records, both of which give their far older peers a real run for their money. it took a band like animal collective a long time before they really mastered the kind of things they were doing, and it seems like volcano! just appeared with their ideas fully formed.
and i wish i had some money >:(
got carried away with myself
i thought we were talking leak.
ill buy it then.

it's really good on first listen the first track especially but only time will tell if it stands the test of time. I'll be most impressed if it manages to hold up anywhere near as well as Beautiful Siezure.
