if this is a physical internship in the sense that you have to go to their office, or can it be done from afar... maybe that would defeat the purpose of an internship, but then this is an internet based site.
should be up there. Their debut was fantastic, although if we are going on live shows im yet to make up my mind. Last time i saw them the frontman came back on for an encore which consisted of twenty minutes of reverb while he lay on the floor... but maybe thats the shoegaze 'thing'.
how to listen to it...
or did it never go up?
questions were posed that called on him to justify his music etc, but without being snide or downright rude. It was quite an adult discussion by the looks of it. Compare that to the recent one with the Hives where the interviewer just asked fucking stupid questions that pretended to be polite but were just taking the piss without ever saying it outright...
This was one of the better recent ones.
and keep it ever in my sight,
i'd box some lovely music, see,
and keep it always near to me.
If i was sad and full of woe,
the box is there to let me know,
'don't give yourself to suicide,
just put your ear to what's inside,
for any worry that should endure,
my music is the cure.'
But as i think 'i wish i had,
a box of music such as that,
and scream unto the skies - 'Oh God!',
I remember i've already got an iPod.
whats she got to do wiv anything? the artwork looks nothing like a kahlo - think they just nicked the name of 'er painting, innit. But thats of watermelons or sumfink, right?
should be there
and think, theyve chosen that one so we think c*ck?
if thats the way it was, then thats fine. It just gave the impression that there was a chuckle being had at his expense, which would seem a mite unfair. We werent listening though, so i'll give you the benefit of the doubt that it was all just frolics. :-)
and there recent efforts havent been that great doesnt mean that Veni Vedi Vicious wasnt a fucking awesome record, and the Hives a killer live act. Still a great band on that basis.
You just come across as a bit of a prick i'm afraid. There's nothing mature about making snide references that, as a non native english speaker, he's not gonna get.

oh well, i dont live in america, so hey.
Roskilde here i come!
and ive got the album, and theyre good, but i dont quite get the hype - theyre not as distinctive as Serena Maneesh or 120 Days, although obviously theyre pretty different. It's nice to see Norway making a musical mark again though - maybe they can finally escape from the shadow of A-ha - Go Lionheart Brothers!
claimed that speaking at the Oxford Union would give them an oppurtunity to broadcast their message in a democratic forum. Why are we helping them to do this? I believe in free speech, in the sense that i don't think we should be arresting everyone who holds contentious views, but neither should we be inviting racist thugs to come and converse as if what they have to say has any value. It does not. The Union's argument that they would take them on in debate and win was naive and immature - to people who support the BNP it has only helped to legitimise them, and it's made the Union look like a bunch of fucking tossers who don't understand the kind of far-reaching genuine affects people like Nick Griffin have - facism isnt a fucking game.
Explosions In The Sky?
apparently the normal cd release will follow early next year... maybe they still need to hook up with a ditributor for that one.
Loads of good enough albums, but nothing has really stood out, and there has been a distinct epidemic of Second Album Syndrome - loads of shite follow ups (Bloc Party leading the pack). Lets hope that we have some gems to look forward to in the coming months. Interpol, White Stripes and maybe Radiohead'll sling LP7 our way before the year is up. Of what we've had, Panda Bear was nice but never truly gripping, Neon Bible wouldve been great if it hadnt had Funeral to follow, and the Shins is a charming listen but hardly a stunner.
its a pleasant enough melody, but lyrically vapid and musically plodding. The first album was a bit shit, Tribulations and Daft Punk... aside, and the second isnt much better. LCD are, whisper it, pretty dull. As to the person who said LCD were way better than the Secret Machines, bollocks! Now Here Is Nowhere was one of the top ten albums of the decade so far - inspirational, beautiful, pulsing, thumping and glorious. Puts Mr. Murphy to shame.
'Hounds of Love' was good, and i have a soft spot for 'Heartbeats' - both managed to take the songs to a new place and create something really good that doesnt have to be considered alongside the original.
Cripple Crow was great, a rambling, self-indulgent record that managed to be a lot of fun and tenderly beautiful at moments too.
And then theres the beard...
i think it's better than Hyperballad, and, with the exception of 'Pagan Poetry', the best thing Bjork has done since Homogenic...
