Yeah, that seems about right.
yet oddly compelling
I haven't seen any of the episodes, but I watched the film. Wasn't sure what was going on in places, but I liked Dr. Weird and Steve best.
the idea of a 90 minute episode sorta scares me, as the TV episodes are 10 minutes long each and sometimes those barely work.
i remember watching it at ATP once and being in hysterics while everyone else in the chalet seemed somewhat bemused.
amazing. i'm going to go buy it in zavvi tomorrow.
A.T.H.F.? That's them.
i saw them live in october. all their backing tracks are on an iPod and the first song was an instrumental. they just sat on tour chairs, motionless, while the song played.
it was this fucking weird show my friend took me to in her student union. there was no bar and everyone was about 18. first on was a guy named Totally Michael, who was.... oh, just watch this:
He knows how to work a crowd. Sounds like a budget-Ninja High School.
he is like a one man hiphop battle sort of...
he's well michael!
how come you didn't like him?!?!
p.s. how the fuck did any of the crowd remember those chants?
this is fucking funny
these lot are pretty much the musical equivalent to Aquateam Hunger Force though:
this contrived, forced upon "cutesy" "fun" music. stick that shit on cbeebies or delete it forever
if you only listened to dubstep like me, this is nice light releafe after 4 days of Shackleton.
what other genres have you liked?
did you get this into those ones too? like, exclusively exploring one genre at a time?
all the time, but I mention it alot... I'm just enthusiastic about it and it's always moving and always keeping me interested at the moment. Nowt wrong with that...
today I posted about an alt folk hiphop electronica ambient act called soso.
Check out my blog if ya like it's full of bands as well as dubstep stuff.
I love all kinds of music captain plums, I have no idea what you like though, what do you like? I don't see you on the music boards ever...
great lake swimmers (laid-back folk with beautiful male vocals), gentle friendly (keyboards'n'drums'n'yelps'n'cute lyrics), 'i was made to love her' by stevie wonder (the energy he pumped out in the late sixties was amazing) and i'm getting back into hercules and love affair (such a great album).
generally: anything which sounds genuinely heartfelt or urgent or vicious or amusing. hooks get me BIG too.
i've read your blog before - it's got me into a couple things. have you heard salem? seen them mentioned loads of places. might be your bag?
its an electro kind of ambient strange thing made by a lass aint it?
I quite like that Herc album its got some very good tracks on it. Wonder is just brilliant of course, I think I like Superstition the best.
I'm not really familuar with the rest.
thanx for reading :)
it has 34 tracks on it and is 59 minutes long
i think there's just a fine line with stuff like this, and its hard to articulate why things fall on either side. like all of yacht's live gimmicks and Q&As i find super fun and i'm down with them, but then i hear shit like that and i think "damnn these guys are a lame joke"
In fact, they're just really good, whether they're gimmicky or not.
(which has the most inversely proportional songname reference to song quality level in the world)
they've got some decent songs. that other one is fucking sickly sweet though, sounds like a song of the tweenies or something. its like spooning syrup into your ears, its horrible
"MUM AND DAD ARE PRETTY MAD, THE BEST WEEKEND WE EEEEEEEVER HAAAAAAD." Tune.
if a bunch of skinny brooklyn vegans put out that song i bet people on here would dig it. that song sounds like its supposed to appeal to 6 year olds!
