"fizzy bloo"d seems kinda standard reuben but missing a bit hook, "pretty please" is fucking brilliant if a bit weird
Hoping for a bit more Reuben-esque melody in the heavy stuff but the mellow stuff could be exceedingly interesting if Pretty Please is anything to go by.
Just amazing to have him back. Feared he'd left music behind. Seemed completely jaded by it all by the end of Reuben.
no? alright, i'll be on my way.
cool, definitely listening to this later
really liked the second.
But is there any need for him to look like SUCH a cunt?
If the second track was actually by Frank Turner you'd all be saying how horrible it was, but it's not so you're all saying you like it.
First one sounded like a Reuben b-side. Still, record's bound to have some gold on it.
that OBVIOUSLY wasn't my point.
and Jamie Lenman is a brilliant songwriter.
Missing your point here SON.
because they're sharing a 7" - mongol horde and Lenman's work on the same vinyl.
Mostly to see what the Mongol Horde track sounds like. This is fun though.
The second one less so
and while i need to be careful about what I say because it ain't released:
1) It is wonderful and
2) The heavy stuff is HEAVY and
3) The swing song is in no way indicative of the rest of the non-metal output on the record. It's quite a standalone style of track in fact.
Note also that Turner's hardcore band Mongol Horde will have ties to this record.
and remind you guys that Lenman also appears on my record, out at the end of this year. SORRYsorry.
One half of the record is full screamy roars over Refused-level technical, furious rockouts. The other half... is all Lenmany, and there are moments in the melodies where you go THAT'S Reuben. But this is something different in some ways. He has a lot of Reubenesque songs left in him for the future but this is... more and different.
I wouldn't want it to sound like another Reuben album
well bears repeating!
On first listen. I much prefer the heavy half and I was expecting it to be the other way round. So I guess I'm slightly disappointed.
I've had a promo for a while. To be honest I'm as disappointed as I thought I would be (but hoped I wouldn't). Pretty average fare for the most part.
It's on spotify.
BECAUSE MY SPOTIFY HASN'T WORKED ALL DAY
was great at the garage last night. nice mix of the new material and a couple of Reuben tracks thrown in as well.
