Pretty great new-ish band.
Elements of The Fall, but something more immediate and beautifully personal at its heart.
but this piece is quite good
found out yesterday that band features ex members of band Teenage Cool Kids
really good stuff
The individual elements shouldn't be as appealing as they are, but I just can't stop listening.
Great when supporting the Men a couple months back... Stupidly didn't get tickets sorted for their 100 Club date in a few weeks though. Sold out way quicker than I was expecting.
impressed but will give it a few more spins...is it a grower?
Not certain if it's familiarity or good songwriting, but I do know that since then it's gotten right in there for me.
Did sound a bit derivative at first but the more I listened the less I cared.
i'm seeing them play on saturday night in philadelphia
gonna see them at EOTR and they are great live judging from vids
crowd went nuts
seems like there's rather a lot of filler though. Maybe I need to give it a couple of closer listens. Either way, Master of My Craft is ace.
So glad they do it live too
thank you this thread.
"Tally All the Things That You Broke" is out October 8 but is already leaked.
why is this year going so fast? I swear this only just came out.
I'll buy that, but it looks like a sort of bits and pieces collection rather than a proper album.
Don't be fooled by the first couple of tracks! I almost was, but then the fidelity improves and there are a couple of pretty good songs nestled in there. To labour the Pavement comparisons, a lot of it sounds like those early EPs, along with the more freewheeling bits of Wowee Zowee.
This is good news!
Anyone listened yet? Not blown away on first listen, although I reckon some of them could worm their way into my head. I'm quite fond of Dear Ramona.
I think Light Up Gold had better individual songs, but also more importantly it had a really good flow throughout. Songs fed into other songs really well, and if there was one you didn't like so much you could be sure you'd be hearing one of your favourites in 2 minutes.
Dear Ramona has probably been my favourite as well so far. Duckin and Dodgin is great too. But yeah, put bluntly it's just not as good.
Light Up Gold is far superior IMO. Can't really see myself listening to the new one all that much in the future
a couple of tickets to see them in November. They're playing in Ramsgate, London, Leeds and a few other places I think...
Also doing dates as PCPC, but didn't fancy that.
but thought I might be getting ripped off. "Parkay Quarts" sound like a shite covers band to me.
so assume it's legit
