Played it about 5 times this week. No idea how it fell through the cracks last year as I've been love with it since it came out. I love the bit were Call me Mr. Demolition Ball goes straight into My Little Haunting.
it was a record. Make of that what you will but in the eyes of the band it's their second album.
which is a shame but makes me feel less bad about not having a ticket. These gigs should be great :(
I wish they'd done one last Scottish date that wasn't T in the park :( Such a great support line up as well.
Don't write and subsequently post crappy hyperbolic biographies written in the 3rd person on your myspace.
Won't even be able to travel to any of the others at that time.
looking forward to hearing this though. For a band that received so much hype they've done a good job of producing 2 great albums so far and in my opinion improving with the second.
A code's sent to your email (but I don't think it comes until a few hours after you order) and you just click on selecter on the tough love website and put the code in.
Oh and thanks to Stephen from Tough Love for clearing that up. I was just about to send an email to find out if there was a delay.
Looking forward to hearing this
the indies are willing to sell their music more cheaply digitally at a decent quality yet the majors won't but they are willing to stream it all at a lower (Yet perfectly listenable) quality for free.
Anyone know the specifics of why this is the case? I would take a guess it'll be something along the lines the majors will be able to gaurantee a lot of traffic through their biggest releases and therefore garner a large advertising revenue where as the indie releases which already have a smaller market will have not only less people listening but then possibly these same people won't go out and buy a record. Or something like that
some good songs and some nothingy ones.
I was impressed when I saw them live though. Genuinely managed to win a crowd over over the space of 50 minutes.
3.Dananananaykroyd (if that counts)
4.Los Campesinos (WABWAD rather than Youngster)
5.Hot Club de Paris
6.The Mae shi
7.Late of the Pier
8.War on Drugs
This list is so DiS I may have to go kill myself (However I did discover Frightened Rabbit Summer '07, indie points please)
honorable mentions - British Sea Power, Youthmovies, Blood Red Shoes, Death Cab, Vampire Weekend, Panic at the Disco and I've actually been really enjoying that airbourne toxic event album after the article that was on here and loads of others that I can't remember
would you say that make another world is better?
I actually really like MAW but it's not really in the same league as what came before it.
and the whole set was brilliant (even if they only played one song from the photo album).
Frightened Rabbit were let down by the crap sound though which was a shame but still seemed to go down really well :D it was really weird seeing them play in a big hall as well!
I'm also really disappointed they're re-releasing It's Christmas so we'll stop makes last years release a bit less special :(
not listened to it that much since I got it but i've really enjoyed it every time I have and although it may not be massively original (Is that even possible now?) it sounds brilliant. The technical instrumentation makes a change from a lot of the (Admittedly very good) lofi inspired stuff which is being loved around DiS right now.
if so couldn't he just have worn a shirt or jacket and then removed said shirt or jacket to unveil his 'offensive' t-shirt over the course of the performance?
but on a slightly selfish note can they please reschedule Glasgow for a Friday or Saturday so I can go please.
that having finally got round to ordering life processes it came through the post this morning.
My Vitriols sound has so much to owe to My Bloody Valentine that that statement is just ridiculous.
Speaking of My Vitriol does anyone know if there's any news of a new album yet?
the pedant in me couldn't let such a mistake lie uncorrected :(
Apart from agreeing to artwork and asking Beggars not to attempt to make a 'new' album (Hence the chronological track list?) They don't seem particularly happy about the release. Their manager Neil wrote about it in his blog a while back.
"Mass Suicide Cult storm mail offices" and headlines to a similar effect
climbing up the walls features on neither disc, but then I suppose it's a shame that it's being released at all.
doesn't get Frightened Rabbit some more recognition I will be rather sad. Going on this, the modern leper and the various versions of fast blood kicking about it's going be very good.
