I've only seen it once but i'd be hard pressed to give it an 8 although I am really excited to see it again.
My main problem was just with certain parts, the opening I thought was corny and I found the boat scene and the pure visual stuff pretty boring, it seemed a little washed out and indistinct on the thing I watched it on and according to Perez that was as good as it would ever look, so. I really liked the crazy bit just before the eggs and the drum song.
I think one of the main problems was the structure, its in the weird place between being a whole thing and a load of distinct segments (kind of like an album, I guess) musically it was more schizophrenic than most albums are and i'm not sure that sort of structure makes as much sense visually.
Still, i'd give this a solid "good" rating.
hopefully they spend on a big UK tour! Amirite guys?!
its relentlessly melodic and structured.
I like it a lot, maybe more than this bliss even.
Vague platitudinous lyrics?
shame the organisation/sound/atmosphere/everything but the line-up, was supposed to terrible for the first two.
there is no scene but if people start thinking bands like black dice or growing or whoever are "below" fuck buttons that'd be massively depressing.
i'm not going to bother listening to this band
I have no idea what it's like or anything, do you?
I'm gonna try and go see him though.
as never-saw-that-coming wins this summer go, ‘Five Years Time’ settles at second behind ‘Dance Wiv Me’.
they're both god-awful, they sound like the inverse of good music, exactly what the public want! hark! hark...
not having it blasted out at you by a huge PA system.
eric copeland EP
If AC the album comes out this year
I'm suspecting this band's songs will be songs in the same way the songs on person pitch are songs.
makes him a dick.
Surely the problem with "faggot" and "pussy" is that it is saying there is something wrong with being effeminate, with not being a hard nut, not being a big bad macho man like joshy.
Comes off as a cunt is all.
my mum complimented my Vladislav Delay CD and my dad said he liked Pantha Du Prince.
It's probably just because it sounds like it could be ambientish background music though, which is less cool.
(b) Axel Willner's The Field ?
oh man, time flies.
two years ago?
who'd have thunk it?
then they have learnt a valuable lesson in life.
Don't pay attention to reviews. Any attention. Reviews are pointless. Reviewers are pointless.
Still - DvsVcSPD are pretty annoying.
your sub-analysis isn't really needed. They've been playing SJ songs longer than any other songs in their catalogue.
Because you don't like it doesn't mean they put no effort in and it's insulting to them to say that.
This EP is a beast unto itself and is perfectly fitted together and beautifully flows, they certainely don't sound like outtakes or drippings to me.
ah well, suits me fine.
it doesn't sound like the beach boys.
Anyhows this EP is incredible, seal eyeing and street flash are both so relaxing and beautiful. Water Curses is so energising. Cobwebs is just so damn good.
expecting the same thing as all those bands.
but the only fuck buttons songs i've heard are pretty bad. I think black dice are about 1000 times better. I really reeeally like black dice. Anyhow fuck buttons seems pretty unaspiring to me - pretty really unaspiring. Uhhh.
I really need to get some more of his albums.
paddington band featuring avey tare, geologist and brendan fowler (BARR) on drums released in 1995 which apparently sold "like 20 or something".
Manoman is such a good EP it's unreal.
if it wasn't produced in the way it was. I really think they suit the songs.
It's also nice that aswell as changing the kind of songs they play and make they totally change the feel and texture of the music. You can hear the different production types throughout.
