HIP INDIE CASSETTES
Raiding the vaults to the bankers?
lol jk, Smith revealed that the group are set to begin rehearsing ideas for the follow-up to 2009's 'In This Light And On This Evening' in a "matter of days".
Do you think he just takes all the records out and does a great steaming shit in their place?
Not that anyone would notice the difference.
if it was Deerhunter...
they've got five albums and two eps and bradford cox is famously prolific. Editors are probably rereleasing Munich again next week.
they probably aren't, nice dig all the same though...
but what exactly is so wrong with it? It's clearly for the fans of the band, but it's good to see the cardiganned bellends out on force.
Face it, you're just really shit at trolling, aren't you? Did you think when you were younger that knocking on someone's door and running away was the funniest thing imaginable?
I just don't see what exactly is wrong with releasing this and the purpose of this thread?
Oh wait, the purpose was to allow people to get all sneery...
at best they could put out an offcuts album... Boxed set implies they're either overcharging for a small amount of content or it's just going to be full of interminable alternative takes. I mean, suede put out a really good double b-sides album after three records, so you never know. But it seems unlikely.
an album of B-sides and rare tracks after the first album, and then released a load of tracks recently that didn't make the cut for the third album. Not sure entirely how they were released, whether they were free to download or whatever, but as I said, this is aimed at the fans and will probably be extremely limited - because quite frankly I don't see many people buying it.
I look forward to it, and will find it interesting as up until the latest album I found everything extremely listenable.
The amount of music he has released simply via his blog more than eclipses the collective output of Editors. For what it's worth, Bradford is basically the new school's answer to Bob Pollard, in which he never had a thought he didn't feel the need to record. However, the difference is, his every thought makes for compelling music, something that cannot be said for Editors.
You're right, we'd all shit out pants if Deerhunter did it. The reason for that is that Deerhunter is the only band that comes to mind that will be talked about in 20 years, and Editors will last another two records and collapse. And it's not just true for Deerhunter; if any truly great band did it, we'd be all over it, because it would be worth the expansive box-set.
It doesn't matter where it's directed. It smacks of a cash-grab, one which will likely be terribly overpriced, and will be made to seem as though it is a coveted collection, rather than just a giant mass of songs that got cut because they deserved to be cut.
Your entire argument here is a pathetic failure, and your trolling isn't even very effective or entertaining. Take that shit somewhere else. This community has shit out better trolls than you.
I doubt the Editors really had much choice about it, don't know much about them but they might have been against it and had it be released anyway, Radiohead couldn't stop EMI putting out a box set.
I googled, they're on and indie label, so it would have probably been their choice
are not a sub-label of Sony BMG
artists through other bigger labels, Editors are licensed through Sony BMG.
the point was more 'if it wasn't Editors...
Releasing something like this after 3 albums when you are still going is something I don't like the sound of. The Manics are one of my favourite bands but I think its ridiculous that they released a greatest hits and a b-sides album at that time. It seems to be me that by doing so a band is saying, "hey look we WERE creative once."
Also, I wouldn't be happy if Deerhunter/Bradford Cox did it because everything is available for free already, why would I buy something I've already been given?
Most of the threads above remind of a Youtube comments page ( EG "this community has shit out better trolls than you") and it doesn't help using Deerhunter as an example. I don't really care for either band, but if Editors want to release a load of old songs and b sides etc, then so what? It's hardly mandatory to buy the thing, so calling it 'exploitative' is a bit much. I think good on them for making an effort to release something their fans will want to own and keep.
In short, it's hardly something anyone in the world really needs, but something a small minority might want, so where's the harm in that?
This would be The Stills
