i like it though, thumbs up first impression.
Hope there's plenty of wig-outs on the album too. Glad they haven't strayed from the formula too much, right down to the album title. All the talk of flutes and sitars on the new OM album worries me. If it ain't broke...
There was talk between Wonderful Rainbow and Hypermagic Mountain that they had recorded an improv album. Anyone know what happened to that?
But there is a new OM album coming out called God is Good on Drag City. It got slated in The Wire this month which can't be good given that their last 2 albums have made their top 5 of the year.
Just thought I'd mention it on account of them being another bass and drums combo with material forthcoming. Man I wish DFA79 would get back together...
Yes. Most sorely missed band of the 00's in my opinion.
could be more crushing
i would really class it as sludgy or stonery enough. No bass ennit, so you don't get swept away
I found it maximally crushing.
'sall dancey n shit which that riff shouldnt really be. the eq bit onwards maybe not but the first 4 minutes or so - very nice.
somebody like Brian Eno or Butch Vig, you know get em nice and cleaned up. Buff em right out. Get them some daytime radio airplay
i wish i was called butch vig
including the wearing of stupid 90s tinted glasses 24 hours a day? Doesn't seem so great now, huh
but i'm thinking bruce willis in die hard with black leather jacket, hat and assless chaps?
I'm pleasantly surprised by this track, really strong.
can someone like, hum it really loudly or type out what it sounds like?
Actually I'll guess at:

I personally think the middle loses its way a bit, but on balance still sweet
it's a bit mid range, but it's ok, in a good way.
