Loving the Friendly Fires s/t. Funky Indie Disco Grooves ahoy. Anyone else enjoying the album at the mo?
has recently replaced cut copy as my most played album of the moment
I'll have to check Last FM at some point, but there's a danger that somehow I may have overtaken In Ghost Colours.
is still firmly on rotation with the Friendly Fires one on my iPod!
currently, and its been stuck this way for a while, with Friendly Fires just moving in:
In Ghost Colours
Made In The Dark
Fantasy Black Channel
Big up the St. Albans Nu-rave shoegaze massive.
Bit surprised they left 'Your Love' off it though, although I guess there may have been copyright issues...
I know these guys now I kinda liked that Your Love track for a while. Not a patch on Jammie Principals original like but it was fun and might get some kids into quality house music.
All this indie disco stuff kinda makes my ears hurt though, I have flirted with it in the past and to me it all sounds stale now.
looking forward to Joiners a week on wednesday!
but i really like it! really fun!
i dont believe it really has that much longevity but its really fun and easy to get into.. jump in the pool is one of those tracks that you fall in love with at the first listen too.. great stuff. would love to see them live, i think that would only bolster my high opinion of them, i hope they dont take as long to produce more stuff though!
but yeah, hopefully they'll follow it up pretty quick.. Kings College sold out now - glad i got my ticket!
there's a track-by-track from the band coming tomorrow and a tour diary and more forthcoming
"Jump In The Pool" in particular is dreamy
but the video is quite awful.
but I was pleasantly surprised after listening to 5 or 6 tracks by them. I've seen the term 'funk punk' and numerous references to Gang Of Four in alot of articles on them which doesn't do them alot of justice. 'Jump In The Pool' is a wonderful song, I really regret missing them at Reading.
Anyone heard their earlier stuff? It's pretty cool. Very angular. They used to be called First Day Back years ago. Went to uni, came back and changed their name.
