It's took me a few listens, but it's really good, isn't it?
Like a punkier Deerhunter.
one of the best Ive heard in a while
"Like a punkier Deerhunter"- so, er, like all the bands Deerhunter rip off?
I've never really wondered who inspire them since I enjoy them so much so don't feel like digging deeper but it'd be cool to hear some suggestions so I can have a listen.
Hookworms are ace, I need more time with the album, but yeah its prob the best album by a real life band in years.
a real life band
You don't need many nowadays sadly, but Hookworms are now one of them.
Cunt. Go talk about wanking yourself into a grave or molestation or whatever it is you're into.
It's the guitar band version of a really good DJ set. everything works individually and as a whole, flows perfectly. lovely stuff
It does what Tame Impala fail to do in my eyes and thats being able to write songs without throwing the psyc influences right into your face. Very solid production, great array of influences and lots of energy... it's certainly one of the better debuts I've heard and it's just behind Buke & Gase for my fav album of the year so far.
It's like my face
It's like my face when I listen to a really good post-rock band I've never heard before. There's an element of slight confusion that any good post-rock music still exists, a smidgen of genuine relief and a little bit of heartfelt joy as well. This record kinda mixes all those feelings together in a way, although obviously it isn't a post-rock record.
Just a thoroughly enjoyable record to listen to.
the album on the other hand...
it's fucking ace
But when DiS consensus is this positive, it gets me quite excited.
an 8 maybe a 9 for me.
its nice to see a great new band come around that are not being pushed down our throats by one of the major "indie" labels.most exited iv been about a uk band in ages
But yes, s'wonderful...
All i could think of was Cryptograms when I first listened.
on April 1st send me a PM - you can have them for a tenner (instead of £18 face value).
it's really good
the tune on the psych for sore eyes ep is good too. its a bit like Gnod but not as good.
same day as Hawkwind :D
