It's a video of a photo shoot for Intersection magazine (Dazed meets Autosport...gettttit?) and the videos were taken by Mr. Leo 'oh I wish I was still on The Wire' Fitzpatrick?
It's like a marketer's wet dream.
credit for that one. Someone else described them as such in some other publication somewhere.
I still haven't recovered from the weekend. I meant deerhunter.
is a great record.
is indeed a good one.
the lord rested on the seventh day, and it looks like we now have the perfect excuse to stay home and do the same on that Sunday.
looking forward to this.
The press release called it their fourth. So I went with that.
I did indeed mean among a new guard from this past decade like GGD, Excepter and so on. By veterans, I meant more people like those old folks in Sonic Youth, Glenn Branca etc. Sorry for any confusion.
playing them through the VLC player. (it's worked for me before) It's an easy one to download and use if you don't have it already.
been floating around as a CDR, but this is the official release of it to a 'wider audience'
saw them open for someone once in a tiny club and they blew all the other bands playing on the bill out of the water.
There is nothing wrong with being a white musician showing interest in African music. And yes, Paul Simon is not the only one. See Brian Eno's and David Byrne work on 'My Life in the Bush of Ghosts' for a stellar example of this.
But the Paul Simon connection is apt here. Vampire Weekend peddle a similar sounding AOR (even if they try to deny it) and in this instance, their approach is fundamentally flawed. Even if the idea isn’t necessarily so.
love this record
I was just able to score 2 off the roundhouse site. Took ages, but I got em.
love a good MP3 blog.
believe you put that horrible photo up.
a great full length.
really was an amazing gig.
does indeed rule.
This man is one of the greats.
Is frigging awesome!!!
The Natural History are a great band from Brooklyn. They aren't currently active, but their first record is worth checking out.
I should probably add that 'Don't you Evah' is a track from their unreleased second album.
is easily the best thing he's ever done.
Spank Rock's album is brilliant.
is still the number one for me. Not a single other record this year has made the hair on the back of neck stand up like that.
(though that may have something to do with the fact that the first time I heard the record, I was using a hair dryer while in the bath and accidentally dropped it in)
is a great band.
Are amazing. Easily one of the best records of last year. A must-buy if you haven't gotten it.
Grant...you can't try and kick-start a discussion on your own review!!!
Well...I guess you could, but you get my point.
Oh, I'll totally admit it. I am personally smack dab on the fence with this one. But, and this seems to be the general case here, these guys are usually loved or despised and I felt it was worth discussing. Personally, I had moments of loving this album and at other moments really hating it. Hence the ‘fencing’
sticking to my guns here.
This just isn't a perfect album in my book. Hence the 8.
I'll agree to that
