My fault entirely.
John, you're fired.
...hence this. Perhaps 'abstract' would have served better. I dunno. Verbiage spew.
FYI: I actually rephrased what was originally written here, slightly, knowing full well the Less Than Zero connection; I'm not sure it was clear previously. I wanted readers to at least get the suggestion that Kele probably doesn't eat foie gras, with or without complete disdain, etc. Although it seems I've failed.
Original wording, pre-subbing (wow, an insight into DiS's internal mechanics!):
"But at least there are no clangers about feeling disgusted with yourself for eating pate de fois gras in a posh London restaurant."
Nick, hope you don't mind me pasting that in there.
I have played it in full six times.
Plenty enough for a review.
Judging by what Nick has written here I'd say he's given it a similar amount of time.
FYI: many music reviewers (albums) get 48-72 hours to turn an album review around. So four days = probably above average.

She offered me some minging vodka drink.
...that they were not higher on the bill in 2000... third from top, right? Below Slipknot and... someone else?

The mere notion of expressed subjectivity must bring you out in a rash.
You might need a bigger flannel.

Squarepusher's new album, Just A Souvenir, will be released via Warp on October 27.
A preview of the album, the track 'Delta V', is available on the Warp MySpace - follow your clicks here.
Having heard some of the album, DiS can report: it's more organic than previous offerings, expanding on the style heard on the man's previous LP, Hello Everything (review).
'Star Time 2'
'A Real Woman'
'Tensor In Green'
'The Glass Road'
'Yes - Sequitur'
Much-loved - sometimes a little too much, and you know who you are - indie-popsters Death Cab For Cutie are heading back to Blighty in November for a series of dates. Live dates. They're not taking you for dinner. You know who you are.
To coincide with the dates (listed below), the American foursome will be releasing 'No Sunlight' as a single on November 17 (physical; digital November 10). The song's single number three to be lifted from the band's latest LP, May's Narrow Stairs.
Those dates, then. Buy your own grub.

Well, that's the last time I link to NME.com.
and I am a busy man.
...tickets are available via it from Monday August 18. Unless I get another link in which case I'll activate that, too.
...to get the ball rolling, eh?
Did anyone get out of the right side of their bed this morning?
Thought Forms and Calories to play a DiScover show together... suppose I'd best ask.
They continue to amaze and entertain me live, and their recorded output is the best 'pop-rock' around - i.e. it rocks wildly and pops like the best bubblegum.
Everyone else: give up.
Here, have four copies.
If you download this album for free I will find you.
you wouldn't want let's get killed pt II.
PR sounded like he was playing live, although previous Green Man listings suggested DJing.
Whatever: he will be on site. Say hello.
voting doesn't close for almost a month.
is really good, I think. It's really shoegaze in places.
...but I know one dude who thought it was the best weekend of his life.
Is probably my favourite ATP ever, although the Dirty Three one runs it close.
"Whoever said that the most popular/hyped album has the best chance of winning is right"
I can't tell you who is currently leading the pack, but I can say that you might be surprised. Hype, it seems, may not extend to voting patterns.
Do you remember your first time?
How do you eat yours?
Press release for the single says two.
my word: bronze.
Yep, was aired.
My attempt to shake your hand on the stairs: literally the most bodged attempt at a handshake ever.
