Default is great.
Storm is particularly amazing but the album is superb all the way through. I don't think many recent debuts have bettered it. Is anyone going to the show at Rough Trade tomorrow?
Been longer than I can remember since I last anticipated a release so eagerly.
so so good
... and frankly the vocals seemed a bit drab. Am I missing something?
and this album seems quite not bad.
If you don't like the Beta Band though maybe it's not for you
Can see what you mean about Beta Band though.
Just giving it a spin now http://open.spotify.com/album/3pqPOPqLgIwLaE4ZuVhYlg
how is this not on your Recommended Records then?
but I am aware that recommended records are often consensus among writers...I suspect that, at the time of the Django Django review, few staff had heard it, meaning it couldn't be recommended by all. I think the best thing to do would be to review what gets recommended, though as I understand the new DiS site (which seems to be much like the sophomore Avalanches' effort when it comes to delays) will improve on this greatly.
...worth the wait
It's looking to be quite a good year for mainstream-ish indie, what with this and the Islet album and Given To The Wild. Also - there does not appear to be a Vaccines or Brother this year, thankfully.
Didn't get onto the recommended albums list though? Daft.
just search Django Django
is the free single of the week on iTunes, for anyone that needs to hear how this sounds...
Which is perhaps not saying much, but a great debut LP all the same.
But it got kind of lost on there. This album really reminds me of Clinic, almost more so than the Beta Band.
I love it.
But I know this will be a classic album.
but benefit of the doubt from me for now
Very, very, very good.
is likely to make you smile contently, go see them live, you'll be purring....and um, yes, elements of Beta Band, Clinic etc but definitively Djangoesque.
This is like an album of Of Montreal b-sides. Which is fine but...it's nowhere near as astonishing as this thread had me believe.
not like the icelandic twins bonus album in particular.
im not saying this is a bad record y'hear? it's just not MINDBLOWING YO as this thread would have me believe
Earworm two mornings running; Storm.
I like it a lot. I get a bit of a Merriweather Post Pavilion vibe from it as well.
Been listening to it a lot over the past month.
Piper At The Gates
They were so great, and really different to what I expected. The dustbowl guitars on the album were replaced with very Hot Chippy synths, it was a big ole dance party.
that you feel really familiar with after only two or three listens, the songs have such overt quality. I love it
I still listen to it more than once a month, it's genuinely proven to be a great wee album.
