It's left me giddy.
There's the slight disappointment that the best tracks are largely the previously released ones (Tell 'em, Crown on the Ground, Rill Rill (née Ring Ring) and A/B Machines), but the new ones are far from filler (excepting the aborted, but otherwise-promising Straight As).
Shame there's no other in the vein of Ring Ring, not even 2HELLWU...
streaming here folks
really looking forward to it. i hope hi-production is as absent from the album as it was in the demos. i thought it helped add to the violence
A/B Machines, Infinity Guitars and Crown on the Ground sound near identical to the demos, but Ring Ring — now called Rill Rill (?) — has been re-recorded. Other tracks have similar production to Tell 'Em — i.e. they sound very MIA.
The sound just hits my happy place like nothing since MBV.
in a row on its first day since probably 2008.
but I'm not that convinced. It kinda sounds like day time radio one does on my car stereo, which has one and a half blown speakers. So the novelty isnt there for me as my car has been plowing that path for a good 4 years at least. In fact my car was in the garage for quite some time not to long ago and I'm now convinced this lot where using it as a recording studio and those two indie looking peeps in that picture are a cover up for the slightly chubby mechanic and work experiance guy recording in my car.
Does make me realise that probably a big part of why I like this album is the fact that my car stereo from my pizza-delivery days was similar to yours. The tweeters used to actually bounce around on the woofers.
It does sound alright though, I'll come back to it another day. I wasn't feeling that track with the big cheesey sample in it, 'Rill Rill' that made me switch off. It reminds me to much of Big Beat, something I could do without going thru again.
the new break on infinity guitars OMG
lobotomypop, totally agree,that bit raises the hairs on the back of my neck.
Heavy,noisy, BIG BASS and still catchy what more could you ask for?
Even so, I can see people equally hating this as much as I love it.
While still acknowledging that they're basically Justin Beiber for hipsters.
THEN AGAIN it's only 32 minutes which is a nice break from all the fucking 55-65 minute epics this year. So it'll probably be de facto commute album (taking over from odd blood). I'm sure it'll grow on me.
Congratulations! Your TELEPATHE evolved into a SLEIGH BELLS!
It's SUPER EFFECTIVE!
can we all agree though that this album beats cc's new album hands down,and is likely to be this years number one indie kid party record.
