but a Jetson's themed Rio sounds great
if anything it had more added to it as the entire crowd belted the lyrics right back at him, and then laughed in unison as nobody could hit the high note during the "blackest of roooooooooms" bit
not sure if its one they play live though, i've never heard them play it and its not on the john byrd ep or any of the live bootlegs
normally just the sound of that motherbitch's voice would provoke violence in me, ?uestlove's managed to make his voice sound quite nice on this, im actually in shock
i've never been but i'm definitely going to this
got the email this morning and was pretty worried he'd gone jazz
i'm going to the South Street date so this makes me happy
probably still be a year before they play it over here, they always tour the States to death before moving abroad. Worth the wait though, amazing live band
Chris Walla's solo stuff is pretty damm good too, i wonder if any of that will get played live?
but Akon on 'Wanna be startin something' is growing on me,
guilty pleasure or what
nice venue too
In no particular order
Dartz! - Once, twice again (might've been 06)
Asobi Seksu - New years
Battles - Atlas
CSS - Alala
National - Mistaken for strangers
Cold War Kids - Hang me up to dry
Twilight Sad - Cold days from the birdhouse
Seventeen Evergreen - Sufferbus
Blonde Redhead - Spring and by summer fall
The Shins - Split needles
i'm probably forgetting something brilliant but that looks about right
were immense, i saw them at Reading the year before last and they were only so-so but they really stepped it up for Belfast. The rockier parts on the new album have given them an edge that wasn't there before and Brandon has got a whole new stage presence which makes them exciting to watch.
I Was A Cub Scout were also epic that day, shame they didn't get a mention in this review
but i think "thats no way to tell a lie" works better and MOTD obviously agrees
i like this album a lot, "Grays" to me sounds like Thom Yorke doing a soundtrack to Close Encounters of the Third Kind which means its good.
i also enjoy "Sufferbus"
I found an album floating around the internet called Safety, Fun and Learning (In That Order) by them which i think was their unofficial debut or something. its nowhere near as good as With Love and Squalor but worth a listen if you like em.
Some quality records in the list but why use "the stantz" to drag people in, you led me to believe the second coming of Ray Parker Jr was here already
I've only heard "I Am Warm & Powerful" but i thought that was pretty good.
I really want to like them just because of their name though so maybe im biased?
i really don't care what people say about "passion" and all that, they annoy me coz they're shit. and as for long song titles : "the difference between martyrdom and suicide is press coverage" dosn't make any sense and they should be taken out and shot for suggesting it. extreme maybe but then at least people would see that despite the press coverage they aren't martyrs
I was quite disapointed with this album, the best track on it is "Always for you" and thats a freebie on Myspace anyway.
were one of the better bands of the weekend although i had to miss most of hope of the states to be able to see them
i Strongly agree with the comments of TimmyL
