and have no particular intention to (or at least, there's no rush)
how are we?
BUT I was going to say TO YOU sort of specifically Severed799, I got this Young Widows album yesterday and it is fantastic. It is moody post hardcore with a bit o Nick Cave and a bit of the new style Swans mixed in
before they were more sort of aggressively Shellacjesuslizardy but I think they sound better like this
just a wee post hardcore update for you
and yeah i'm doing alright, making soup wbu
I tell YOU to get out of this thread
that officially activates a listen.
but am dying to.
I'm alright, ta. Looking forward to the France-Italy game in a bit, might squeeze in an episode of Phoenix Nights before that. Listening to Loveless atm, all this MBV chat must be getting to me. Will probably check out the new album at some point in the future, but I'd be surprised if it was this year. Slept in and had cold pizza for breakfast/lunch. You?
the superbowl is very much outweighing a new MBV album right now, gonna go see Lincoln this afternoon. May listen to MBV later in the week.
I hope so. People who aren't American but pretend to be interested in American Football are the worst.
Made me wonder who has been directing all those terrible Spielberg movies for the last twenty years.
...so surprised by it. beautifully made, informative, captivating. everything, really. apart from Sally Field. she was a bit shit.
stop thissing these posts we both know he's a major league chump come on
what can I say
don't make me feel guilty for getting pleasure from other people's pain
listening to violent femmes first album. I like it, only got into it recently tho heard add it up a load of times on one of the tony hawks games
I'm really hungry tho , I need some food
MBV are good not great. I'm looking forward to hearing it at some point, though.
...IMO, Slowdive are better. They're more listenable.
I'm going to listen to Catch the Breeze right now.
all the mbv chatter reminded me that I hadn't listened to Shot Forth Self Living in a while.
thank you, mbv chatterers!
I listened to a little bit of it and now I'm just downloading it instead. I'm ok in the meantime.
but... I've also listened to Owen Pallett's He Poos Clouds nearly three times today. I prefer that album.
This has reminded me that I really must listen to He Poos Clouds again soon.
till my girlfriend told me she was listening to This Lamb Sells Condos which prompted me to listen to He Poos Clouds again.
I think He Poos Clouds is better. It's just consistently fucking amazing, so rich and full of life.
Am I still allowed in the thread?
I'll check out the new record in 2024 or sutin.
Was some cracking stuff on Absolute Radio earlier.
Forgot how incredible this Waterboys song is http://youtu.be/pu7AR0-FRro
...listening to that Warpaint record from a few years back. really good.
And I'm good, thanks for asking.
I'm listening to Kaputt because I only got round to getting it yesterday.
I like "Soon", pretty catchy tune, but do they have any ones with more tits and ass?
That said, I just woke up for today, and I very much need to shower, because I need to go into town to watch the Superbowl, and then record a podcast.
I don't actually care about football (i.e. I have NO idea who the Ravens are [Baltimore apparently? all I know about Baltimore is from The Wire]), but my cohosts care, so why not go drink with them?
I would also like to listen to this a lot more than the new MBV. Weird.
But Strap it on by Helmet is better than both.
that bloke that's also in Battles innit.
I saw Battles a few years back, and I was stood in front of him. AMAZING to watch him play.
on the way to work this morning. Great album, never seems to be much love for Spoon on DIS.
Still don't understand the MBV euphoria. All round great band and everything. But after waiting 22 years for them to bother to do a 3rd album, I figure waiting a few more weeks won't make much of a difference to me.
I gave them cameras + films as gifts
(Nikon L35AF and Stylus Epic Deluxe)
I stand corrected.
especially Girls Can't Tell and Gimme Fiction. Then I saw them live at Latitude 2010 and haven't listened to them since. It was such a flaccid show.
I might play them again now.
really really good
possibly cos of the 'mbv' thing? 'Mother of Thousands'
still sounds spacey and weird and amazing
there are NO CLIPS on youtube :(
Got that Zubelon box set thingy on COM that VT went nuts about this week. But it really is ace, some far out jams, loads of guest musicians, and a nice range of ditties from their catalogue.
but man I don't think I have time for all that stuff. Also it's 62 quid. But Mother of Thousands is the only thing that'll dae the job when I need it
It started boiling loudly, and to be honest, I couldn't tell the difference.
And they've both got louder over time. Although the current one is better than the first, which also had the annoying habit of tripping the safety switch if you used it at the same time as the dishwasher.
I think I might have to use some descaler to make the kettle "quiet" again.
Part of me feels like I should? idk it's fun to be part of the experience with everyone but this band doesn't do much for me. Ive listened to Loveless plenty of times but it just kinda washes by me. I like it ok but cant see why people revere it so much.
The mentality that there are certain things you HAVE to like, or at least create the illusion to others that you do, should've died out by now. I bet a sizeable percentage of those who've listened to it have done so because they think it's their duty to, and that many wouldn't give it the time of day at all had any other artist created it.
That said, I won't deny MBV's legacy (the band, not the album) and Loveless is very good to my ears. And yes, I suppose there's something nice in a communal dialogue about a common interest like this.
I just think we should all enjoy music for ourselves, and not get bogged down with PC indie etiquette.
Just to be able to have some opinion on it is all I meant. Landmark albums that so many people buzz over dont happen too often but this one just doesn't matter to me.
PC indie etiquette? Idk it's like the movie that everyone is on about and you want to be able to talk about it too. Sometimes music enjoyment is personal and sometimes it's social, don't think either is particularly wrong or right.
Post header was, rest of it was more of a general, cynical rambling. I completely agree with giving something a go to see what the fuss is about, it's just when people feel like it's their obligation to do so that it bothers me.
I've always seen music as personal, and not particularly social, but that's just me. I do think PC indie etiquette exists, but to what extent it's applied to this album remains to be seen.
I am very cynical about things like this, so pay not attention if any of this doesn't apply, or annoys/offends! Apologies if it does.
why do MBV songs sound like they were recorded on a Digitech GNX3 guitar effects processor?
I'm a little jealous. But I've never been that fussed about them and this is passing me by. Ah well.
kind of reminds me of Duke Nukem Forever, if I hadn't known better I'd have thought it was kind of rushed. 6/10
how are the rest of you holding up?
but then I listened to Good Kid, m.A.A.d City again
so you're all not going to be able to stop yourselves now
