I be a happy man.
have made me smile like a bugger.
Good video too. I like Garth Jennings.
most of you are going to hate VW's sophmore album. its simply because most music listeners put unrealistic expectations on a band if they like their debut album. They want the album to be like the first one, but completely original. Oh the Irony...
and if a band is to take a step in a new direction, music listeners and critics tear that shit up...just ask bloc party.
I won't bother listening to it then.
Every step that Bloc Party has ever taken in any direction has ended with their feet in a giant pile of the bullshit that is their music.
It is possible to deliver on a sophomore album, but yeah I haven't liked what I have heard from Contra so far. Really low expectations here - and I liked the first one.
Indeed: "Two Dancers"
But Wild Beasts hadn't built up a massive fanbase on the back of their debut album, it was the follow-up that nabbed people, myself included. Although it will be interesting to see if they can follow on from it on their 3rd album.
But that video is brilliant.
