Any love for 'Rise Ye Sunken Ships'?
It's quite good. I think I like it.
If so I might wait a while before I give it a go.
It's sad and emotive but also very uplifting, particularly musically.
He seems happy to talk quite freely about his life in interviews i've seen/read.
it was more Gaslight Anthem-y than I was expecting, but they're some of the nicest blokes I've met so I'm on their side.
I filmed an acoustic session with Billy on a boat, which is nice;
(Apart from the sound fucking up mid-way through)
a cheeky rip of it for a long journey last week after Frightened Rabbit mentioned it on twitter. I liked it but not much stuck, though to be fair I only listened twice. It might become a favourite, who knows.
I as well checked it out after the FR name drop and then on seeing some of it was produced/mixed by Dave Newfeld. I'm really liking it and am extremely upset their Dingwalls show is already sold out. Anyone have a spare by any chance???
where he goes "AYNDDD I FINK MAH DAADDIES DEADDD". I know that sounds insensitive because it's meant to be a very earnest record, with a grim back story but just saying. GOOD SONG!
not for me
but musically it really isn't at all.
I quite like it.
managed to get it on import before going to see them support Frightened Rabbit. Also very good live. Love the guitar sound and vocals on the album. Definite Gaslight Anthem influences as mentioned above. I suppose the subject matter and tone of the album may make some feel its a bit bleak but for me the brutal sincerity makes it quite cathartic
quite liked it.
