Album out this summer?
El's had that as his Twitter/Soundcloud picture for ages.
This song is heavy and nice. Can't wait for the record.
Reminds me of Company Flow more than anything. Which is a good thing.
Cancer for Cure was getting absolutely rinsed around that time last year, reminds me of finishing my dissertation now and then cotching for a month in le' sun.
They're touring it stateside as well, God I hope they bring it over here.
This is so good, they're such a fucking solid duo. I bet they will come over here, both have been over recently to a good reception.
Release date / tracklist / artwork:
I think I might pre-order the record - it looks really nice with the gold vinyl and all the instrumentals too.
I *really* need a new herb grinder.
Can't wait for this record.
No luck :(
it probably won't be available until 1/2pm today at the earliest
First track delivers big time
is one of the default sounds on the Computer Kit on the Native Maschine. Really distracting me from the rest of the track.
Apart from that, sounds great so far.
that there's a lot of the ideas here which sound very similar to some of those on Cancer 4 Cure & R.A.P. Music. To the extent that some of these songs almost sound like "sister" songs to ones on those albums.
on first listen, it sounds a bit like a finishing off job on those two records.
Luckily I love those two records and it's succinct enough to not feel played out. The last song is really brilliant.
Guess they're stretching the sound a little, but I love a good victory lap. Can't wait for the tour.
The US shows are solo sets from the pair of them and a Run The Jewels set as well. Can't wait for dates to be announced here.
Was half expecting it to be a bit throwaway in a fun way from the "singles" but there's a lot of tracks which are a lot denser and feel a lot like growers from the first listen.
The title track goes fucking hard though, it's the tits. Loving Sea Legs as well.
dudes, stop leaving unfinished business. You'd have thought they would have learned their lesson.
The Big Boi x El-P connection needs to be explored further
I'm so motherfucking grimy, so motherfucking greedy, gritty / Momma said I couldn't breast feed because I was biting at her titty
Word for word. He sounds so fucking hyped up
Really not bothered about it sounding too similar to the last two records as that's exactly what was to be expected, plus it's FREE and it took them like 9 months to make, really can't argue with an incredibly *solid* record off the back of something they decided to do for the pure pleasure of it.
They're billing it as an album rather than a mixtape, so maybe it sounds a little undercooked in that respect, but, y'know, it's free. And it's great.
Beats are awesome throughout, and both guys sound even more amped than on their albums from last year.
Get It is probably still my favourite, but loving the title track and Twin Hype Back
The title track is my highlight followed by Get It, Sea Legs and Job Well Done
fucking hell it's special.
I'm really enjoying this.
Such a banger.
I sent they mom a little cash and a sympathy letter / Told her she raised a bunch of fuck boys / Next time do better / BITCH!
the two have a killer chemestary, badman flow and wicked personality. They crack me up and just work. But the music aint even close. I wanna hear them on the Joe Rogan podcast not on record. The beats aint bad as such but they don't match the vocals at all. The beats kinda have a try hard old guys making young people shit vibe to them that rubs the wrong way. I think its the arangments of the beats thats just some how doing too much all the time one way or another, it just doesn't sit well and makes the rest of it sound not quite right to me at least.
I've got a load on wax from years back. I'm a fan of his from way back, but he just aint the same any more hasn't been for years. And I aint nostalgic like that if someone falls off they fall off.
Hope they bring Despot too
(would also like a Despot album too)
Panicked there. Anyway, FUCK YES.
Same night as Dismemberment Plan :(
I got all excited as I misread it thinking it said Electric Ballroom - ie. they were supportin' the Plan..
Bit steep (£16.50 plus like fifty quid in SeeTickets fees...) but fuck it.
But really, you're getting 2 for the price of 1, plus I imagine it'll be incredible.
Clashes with The Dismemberment Plan
DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND
and joyous and fun and idk just want to hug everyone
Met Mike after his show here earlier this year and he's easily the most engaging and downright lovely artist I've met. Got the sense that his appreciation and love for people coming out to see him was 100% genuine and it was great to see.
Seems pretty close by... could do with saving a few quid if they are
but I'm getting a ticket anyway, just in case
might try to flog it if they do end up playing ATP 1 (depending on how great they are, and how knackered I end up)
SAID IT'S THE BEAT OF THE YEAR
I SAID EL-P DIDN'T MAKE IT
SO GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE
click "get it now" and put yr email address in
I cannot express how gutted I am that this clashes with the Dismemberment Plan. Might be the hardest gig-going decision I've ever had to make!
By my overexcitement at seeing the Dismemberment Plan. Probably for the best as my umming and aaaring would have meant that I missed out on both...
Might actually be able to pick up the vinyl now! Can't actually find any more news on this but this page does exist:
Looking forward to picking up the vinyl. Been listening to it LOADS this week and is fast becoming my record of the year.
Wouldn't have paid a fucking fortune in shipping and customs charges for the vinyl if I'd known a UK label was gonna put it out.
or are there more dates to be announced?
Basically yeah it's a one-off, that's El saying they'll be doing a proper European tour at the beginning of 2014.
And that they'd be sending replacements? Well, WHERE ARE MY REPLACEMENTS?
Anyone for a drink in the Craft Beer Co beforehand?
Not sure if I have - if everyone else has, I'll go rummaging through the post.
firstname.lastname@example.org who've sorted it for me (just gonna leave replacement tickets at box office)
Got one left at the box office. Ticketweb are bloody useless.
as support...seemingly not. it will be extremely ace i'm sure anyway.
i saw them in toronto with kool ad, despot as well as solo sets as well. it was brilliant, if a really long (4.5 hour!) gig
I was hoping Despot would support here too, maybe the full tour will be more like the US dates
Young Fathers were fucking brilliant too, much better than when they supported Why? last year and I liked that too.
was the comic timing of El-P saying "could you not have made that a bit more dramatic?" following KM's brilliantly overblown Raegan in the middle of the crowd.
Great show. The system was REALLY loud.
That was great, he's a funny man. Enjoyed his responses to people yelling out specific things to him all night as well.
Love the dynamic the two of them have.
thought my house alarm was going off - and I was wearing earplugs as well.
They just dropped an exclusive new track on the build up. Being interviewed now
Was it good?
and the new track is gonna be on that, along with a couple of remixes including one Dave Sitek (iirc from the interview).
Sounded good, very much in line with the rest of the album. Don't worry about missing a big new single or anything though.
Given I ended up spending about £35 in delivery and customs charges for the US vinyl
