i don't know anyone who has seriously listened to Korn or Rage Against the Machine in the last 6 or 7 years.
it's all well and good comparing a small band to a big band, but if they sound nothing alike then it's a pretty void comment, no?
Charlottefield, Why?, Lemuria, Hot Club de Paris, Johnny Foreigner, Stapleton, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Algernon Cadwallader, Dananananaykroyd (EP, whatever), An Emergency, Frightened Rabbit, Sinaloa, No Age, Times New Viking, School of Language, Meneguar, Sun Kil Moon, Subtle, Deerhunter, the Hold Steady.
i hate the foals comparison just because there is a bit of open to closed hi-hat action.
they sound like the Futureheads covering Minus the Bear in my opinion.
i struggled to listen to the first one all the way through at times, the accents and cheesiness grated on me.
this album sounds so much more mature and just all round better song writing.
i listened to the album before i read the tracklist as well, so the Minutemen cover was a lovely surprise... "hmm, this bass line sounds familar... have they lifted this from... oh!"
supporting foals at the new Leeds academy?
guesses, but i reckon that place is going to be massive, shit, expensive and will look like an airhanger, if the other carling academy's are anything to go by.
but it'd still be really cool to see danana on a massive stage in front of a crowd of tools.
when i saw them
none of them really looked comfortable on stage though
i really enjoyed the last album and the last show at Leeds had a great lineup
call me shirley.
she'll have a stalker on her hands, wearing a bill murray mask.
crowd surfing guitarists, beer everywhere, rolling around the floor etc, shame no one got any photos of them
in some online album or anything?
seeing that live the other year was life-affirming for me.
the quiet bit in the middle, the whole crowd shouted "TOO POLITE TO SPOIL THE PARTY" before it kicks back in heavy, and the band looked stunned that everyone knew the words.
and the combo cd.
chez chef, icy you, rebuild the pier and orignal on the enjoyment are all oop as far as i know.
1. Chez Chef EP
2. Rebuild the Pier
3. On The Enjoyment of Unpleasant Places
4. Hug the Coast
5. Rest and Be Thankful
6. Icy You EP
get Rebuilt the Pier or On The Enjoyment of Unpleasant Places
Chez Chef is my favourite CD of theirs, but it's only 4 tracks.
the last album Hug the Coast and this album aren't quite on par with the 3 i just mentioned, but they're still amazing.
has always been horrendous, they should be much bigger than they are.
this would have been a 9/10 or 10/10 for sure.
spoils the middle of the album for me slightly.
stand out is Dear Dusk, awesome riffs.
Frankie is better than Frame & Canvas.
not quite sure how Cap'n Jazz got into the "Math-Rock" article but not this one.
some glaring mistakes
no mention of Indian Summer or Antioch Arrow either
not heard this album yet, but they've been playing material off it live for a very long time, and i doubt a 5 is a fair score, they're a fantastic band.
massive YES at whoever said Twelve Hour Turn
Boilermaker and Boys Life too.
should be at Leeds
half of the bands in that massive list at the top definately aren't math-rock, and you've missed a fair few of the vitals.
to see Built to Spill play Perfect from Now On would be amazing.
the rest of the lineup is incredible too.
matt is a celebrity.
and said they were just as good as when they toured the first record.
and the new album gets better if you give it a few goes, i thought it was pretty lame at first too.
a dying hamster singing along to all the worst Biffy Clyro songs last week supporting Nisei. grim
Goodbye Sky Harbour
i'd LOVE to see the full version of that song finish a set.
Porcelina, Mayonnaise, Try Try Try, Everlasting Gaze, Lily, Cash Car Star
DiS get told
the smallest is 300-500
the other is somewhere inbetween
when DiS put Manchester University
it could be academy 1, 2 or 3
i doubt it is
it's more consistent than the warning
but its not stunning
any news on the hot snakes live dvd that's supposed to be out this year?
i can agree on 10/10. and the fact that they need a label to put this out asap.
alot poppier than their other records, but catchy as hell
not much mention of charlottefield though, which is wierd considering their new record is one of the best releases on the whole label
nice birthday present
but you get what i mean
they have many much better tunes in the backline that are much catchier and likely to get them fans
