But I do think What's In Your Head and Lividup would sound pretty great in a club.
Still think Blue You is the best thing they've done.
Anyone have any details of screenings, preferably in the North?
You're kidding, right?!
Their quality control is amongst the highest of any 21st century band.
I suspect this may really come into its own for the inevitable post-Christmas comedown.
and/or where to get tickets?
Another site has it listed at 'Gorilla', which is said to be a new bar owned by Trof. Can't see any further details anywhere.
This was probably my most anticipated release of the year, yet I completely share your sentiments. Just...baffling.
Let's hope they (or he, as it now is) keep releasing killer remixes/mixes.
Clearly a twat.
Although Wonderful Life is real nice.
did I not catch these guys (and girl) at Dot to Dot?!
Pot. Kettle. Black.
My only qualm is that there should have been a couple of instrumental tracks.
The transition from Simple Graces to Infinite Desert is sublime.
Favourite album of the year so far.
of the highest order
I saw them support Tom Vek, like, 5 years ago.
Are you friggin' kidding me?!
That's my track of the year. Absolutely killer pop song.
Comments of it being 'a bit average' completely baffle me.
But he has a point. This is much better than mediocre.
It's an 8/9 for me.
A New Chance is even better - probably my favourite record of 2007.
The rest veer between bearable and abysmal at an alarming rate. It's wafer-thin R&B-lite and probably would have gone largely unnoticed had it not been for the members' permanent dayjobs.
I can't quite believe that I really like the first two singles off this.
It's an album that just keeps giving. The production is lush and I love how poppy all the songs are, despite avoiding the traditional verse-chorus-verse formula.
Brilliant. Just... brilliant.
It's really rather good. Come Into the Room is worth the cover price on its own.
Yeah, including this site.
But cheers for the head's up - very exciting news, indeed.
I wish they'd tour just one last time. Probably the band I most regret not seeing live. And the pain just comes flooding back reading about the 'unforgettable' Arts Cafe show.
Maybe one day...
Haven't heard much stuff by The New Year, can anyone recommend where to start?
I thought it was just OK. The newer songs sounded really flat, particulalry Golden Age, but the gig was saved from mediocrity by cracking renditions of Young Liars, Dirtywhirl and Staring at the Sun.
Mind you, someone else I know thought it was the best gig they'd been to this year.
And whilst I think the Frightened Rabbit record was one of the best of the year, DCFC have been unfairly overlooked here. Particularly the earlier stuff, which, if listened to properly, is lyrically outstanding.
But a Plans heavy set? Meh.
Picked it up at a live show about 6 months ago.
Will catch up with you in Manchester, Sam.
It's fucking awful.
God they're a wild bunch, aren't they? Waterpistols indoors?!
Calm down, boys.
That line makes me want to rip my ears off.
On the whole, it's a good album. But a 9?
but apparently not.
I'm still gonna be listening with sceptical ears. This is pretty much the only overwhelmingly positive review I've read.
when they had this as an exclusive nearly a year ago.
despite them being so captivating live. It just doesn't really go anywhere, and seems to get lost in itself at the towards the middle.
Also, no Frightened Rabbit?
Potential album of the year (again).
I decided a few weeks ago I was gonna get my dad the new Fleet Foxes record, but they keep pushing the release date back so he might have to settle for the EP.
According to wikipedia, 'in October 2007 show gross sales of 2,400,143 for the Daily Mail, compared with 789,867 for the Daily Express.'
Does anyone else die a little inside when they find out a seemingly respectable individual reads the Daily Mail? Unfortunately, it seems to be an all too often occurence.
