just another inscisive obervation i thought i should share with you all
Although, there are better dream pop/fuzz rock outfits out there.

every song by howling bells is a stone cold coldplay wannabe
HOW ACTUALLY DARE YOU
DON'T SLEEP TONIGHT MICKEY, I'M COMING TO KILL YOU IN YOUR BED
howling bells suck dick
Howling Bells are one of the top 5 bands of the last few years.
brmc, the strokes, ryan adams, white stripes
And the only reason for that is - they have more to go from.
This thread's a joke, right?
He produced 'Howling Bells', but 'Radio Wars' was produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat.
I thought you said he produced both records. My bad.
A poor man's All About Eve
pretty simular I guess in the intro at least, I've not heard the band before I cant go beyond that.
to go from coldplay's producer ken nelson to dan thingy who was radiohead's engineer-cum-mixer dude in shadow of nigel godrich seems just a little too considered for a band that have talent (some) but seem so BOTHERED to be hip and cool and sadly take so long to write mediocre songs that by the time the tracks are mixed, produced that SOUND is then out of date and hackneyed!! they should have stuck to the pop music they used to release in Oz..
I thought the same thing. Of course, they are exactly the same but I think there is a definite influence there.
i'm thinking of making this thread into a life-affirming oscar gobbler with philip seymour hofman playing me, the chastised prophet who had to suffer hell for vindication....i'm talking to a few people about different directions we could take it in...i'll let you know how it goes
