What do y'all think?
on one hand, why there are mountains is an awesome album as a whole but i can never get past the fact that it's very 90's. I suppose that shouldn't be a bad thing, but their sound feels a tad anachronistic, still, great songs
Saw them in Bristol a while back. He reminds me of Paul Westerberg a bit.
liked them didn't like the venue, been lisening to the album again this week. Did you see the support?
Live they're not bad either.
However, the singer does just look like his giving his best orgasm face whenever he plays a solo. Slowly closing his eyes, opens his mouth wide and strums widely. It is amusing, yet it did put me off the music a bit.
Usually a quick in and out job.
we fucked off over the road and then did the same, the support looked fucking awful and further investigation of their myspace confirmed as much.
but whenever I listen to them I always end up switiching to Modest Mouse/ Built To Spill instead... especially after 'Cold Spring' where the guitar, drums, strings and vocal patterns sound exactly like modest mouse with the distortion turned down.
and the fact they are pretty much the nicest guys in music who are still very shocked by the fact that people come to see them.
Their new stuff from the hoxton bar and kitchen show sounded great aswel and their new bassist/occasional guitarist adds alot more to the band.
