well . .is it?
very much so
With a really strong, clattering, metallic and I hate to say it "tribal" drum section which kind of converts standard disco beats you hear in bloc party or whatever into something really beautiful. Mainly based around synths and samplers and sequencers and the kate bush-esque singer. I don't know how to sell it. They are amazing.
3 out of the 4 members play some kind of drums, at least live anyway.
but it's not out yet, I don't think anyway...
They sound like a freaky electronic disco played by a band. It's all kind of dreamy yet danceable...
james yuill, los campesinos and this.
i think i will get it to be honest, nothing else better to spend my money on.
I'm gona get it on order soon too
Yes and, indeed, yes.
how does it compare to their other albums?
Soundscaping, long interludes, ambience etc, the new album's taken on an ever so slightly more straightforward direction in the sense that it's a little more song driven.
It's brilliant and definitely worth getting, and the production on it is fantastic. I think I still prefer God's Money but that's probably down to my long term obsession with it - and I love the ambient sections which aren't as apparent on the new one.
I defintely prefer the Gods Money incarnation of GGD much more than the current one, but the new stuff is still pretty good though. Perhaps a bit too straight-forward sounding for my liking, but enjoyable none the less.
Takes some time to get used to, once the album clicks it's just outstanding.
puts most other new music to shame, really.....
could be a real breakthrough for them a la Battles I reckon..
I really like that discription hehehe
It's all kinds of aceness!
Just need to transcribe my recording (Alexander Tudor)
If "God' Money" was a 9/10 then "St Dymphna" is an 8/10 (for me)
