DiS, stop trying to intellectualise your writing! we all know alan sparhawk deep down just loves led zep
their earlier music, tracks like 'Shame' and 'Embrace' must be genuinely soul-destroying. There are better Low songs, even on C'mon
Anything with happy faces needs to happen more
he's grown up, we've all grown up, his voice is more soulful and more assured
I think we all need to get over Apologies... really great record, but this album is, like Mt Zoomer is a rollercoaster ride, perhaps not in the usual indie rock zeitgeist of the 90s that we all look for in records, not everything can just sound like modest mouse. As we see in Sunset Rubdown/Swan Lake Krug is a great modern prog writer and Boeckner a great pop song writer in Handsome Furs. What Wolf Parade allows is a brilliant set of songs that tone down the slight overeccentricities of Krug for really heavy stompers (Black Swan sounds like a wolf parade song to me) and Boeckner is allowed to bring out his Tom Petty/Springsteen Heartland rock. What Expo 86 is is a wonderful collection of songs that you'll want to see live, any track. Yulia and Golden Age are as anthemic as This Heart's On Fire and In The Direction of the Moon is probably better than a lot of Apologies. This album is something I'd put on when i'm in the house on my own wanting to play my guitar along to as loud as possible, Mt Zoomer is a really great album too, to see WP's darker side of writing, Apologies seems dated compared to the last two efforts. Sorry.
this is boring.
they all should be writing their memoirs. becoming the fat immovable monoliths that they originally said they themselves were rebelling against. compare this to their 'poptones' and 'careering' on old grey whistle test this is just pure bad

in a huey lewis 'workin' for a livin'' way, obviously alan sparhawk's fun outlet whilst away from Low and guitar hurling
If ever there was a match made in heaven. this is it, plus more
no mention of grizzly bear, poor showing
any isn't the new dirty projectors record out next year? yeah, why no mention of the two most innovative bands in rock?
write better and more successful than all the above
but if i had to choose, No Age
are more interesting than the album
cos they make interpol and radiohead sound human for once
been there, done that
before sam's town came 'a hundred miles off' by the walkmen, which was really dylanesque and more inline with american rock like springsteen
now, the new walkmen record You & Me, here's a blurb on insound.com
You & Me is a solid and complex collection of inspired songwriting. Romantic and celebratory, this is the sound of The Walkmen returning to classic form. The music that influenced the Walkmen to compose You & Me follows in a tradition of song writing that traces back to early rock'n'roll: the intimacy and energy of Elvis Presley's and Buddy Holly's early recordings, and the massive voice and orchestration of ROY ORBISON.
*sigh*, they'll never get big, will they?
at the end of the day they're just a one album band
maybe bands like mystery jets will become the next bigs stars of the UK? sure, they're indie and they're guitar music about girls, but i think stylistically different and fresh enough compared to the wombats, the libertines, the kooks, the pigeon detectives, the cribs, the the the the the the the the the the... to make an impression
i kinda of wanna refund my ticket, those were my 2 things
what a nice video to go with a nice song
i haven't heard it, then....
Wild Beasts - Limbo, Panto
Mystery Jets - Twenty One
El Guincho - Alegrenza
Born Ruffians - Red, Yellow and Blue
The Dodos - Visiter
Wolf Parade - At Mt. Zoomer
No Age - Nouns
Hercules and Love Affair - S/T
Vampire Weekend - S/T
High Places - Demos
loads of good new albums!
that someone would be able to fill out a magazine of exclusively post-rock icelandic bands
because it all sounds exactly the same
is such a tune, being here is very U2...
caribou bored me, born ruffians rocked
and it was like being inside the mind of an office boy
it's a shame cos the album is well good
the wild and the innocent? ranks above darkness in my opinion
you should really put in born in the usa, too, it just gets shit on cos it's all synthy, still a landmark album
my highlights were
Atlas Sound - worst live band ever.
sing properly for once?
that you couldn't dance at Durrr
i was looking forward to him more than mystery jets
'lick out courtney...then write about it'
really end up tearful after lars told him solos weren't cool anymore?
reminds me of jackie by jacques brel
the drummer got hospitalised.
in pop culture are looking shifty right now,
soon Damon Albarn and David Byrne will start sabotaging vampire weekend
it's probably like his reward for staying clean
"right, if you go through rehab and it's all fine i'm sure the nice boys at the nme will give you something to be proud of, here's a doggy biscuit"
he just is
they've not been getting much luck in england lately...
he plays guitar, arsehole
i used to not really like song, and love all the other songs, but the video makes them so cute!
