What happened to these guys? They've not released a proper album since 2009. I used to be a huge fan.
but it was awful. Fantasick Imposibliss was really good though, and although i was devastated when Emma left, hearing this left me confident that they would still be awesome.
Sure i have read that they will be releasing something new this year.
I bloody love them. Gutted never to have seen them, too.
Might not bother now.
I saw them in 2008, their only UK headline show as far as I'm aware. They were amazing.
Yeah I say I "used" to be a huge fan, but I still am. Such a sucker for those all-band choruses / twinkly piano bits / kind of messy all over the place sound.
I had a ticket to that one but didn't realise it was the Monday after ATP. I got home mid-afternoon, decided to have a nap for a few hours before the show, and woke up at 6am the following morning. fail :(
Yeah, I wasn't up for it at all having gone to that ATP - so hungover, hadn't really eaten anything apart from pizza the whole weekend so I felt like death, but glad I went <333
Also I bought a TMSR HOODIE!!!!! It's well tatty now.
i think that was actually just before i realised how awesome they were so i didn't go.
They were a total mess at points but there were moments of perfection, i thought. And the Phages EP, wow. I will never forget how amazing i thought that was the first time i heard it. cripes
Phages is amazing, one of my favourite EPs ever (if you can call it that, it is 33 minutes long).
I listened to Underwater Cinematographer > Phages > Population this morning in a row and just such a load of great songs.
could never get into UC retrospectively i don't think. But yes to the other two, and of course Ever Expanding Universe has its great moments..
Here's hoping for some shows/new stuff this year
Underwater Cinematographer is my favourite. Proper hairs-on-the-back-of-your-neck moments in places.
ok. in that case, i will give that another go this arvo..
supporting Broken Social Scene at Cargo in 2005 - one of the best gigs I've been to. I really liked the album from that time (maybe their first?) but then forgot all about them.
used to love em though. them and anathallo <3
very nice. Quite understated compared to TMSR, which i like.
Don't Kid Yourself (You Need A Physician) is a good starter. Their later stuff is very understated aye.
just had a look on Spots and the only thing on there is Canopy Glow.
Hugely underrated band.
I've often thought that Population sounds like it could've been made by Youthmovies (similar structures/melodies) - probably just me...
I hope they come back soon - Fantasick Imposibliss was SO good.
