All this talk of having a 'moment' and touring arenas, I don't think it's relevant or important to be honest. Deerhunter are not this sort of band, despite their poppier moments.
So that could be their MPP I guess... Regardless, I think it would be doing them a disservice to expect them to follow an REM/Arcade Fire path. They're an experimental band at heart. If you want to draw parallels, I saw a comment that Monomania is like 'their Centipede HZ'- a return to roots. Only difference being this isn't shit.
suggests to me that you don't have a clue about the type of sound TTNG are going for, or their musical influences.
That said, I'm yet to give this a proper listen, so not going to argue with the score.
this one is a disappointment though.
what a douche
I do struggle to see how this wouldn't be in most people's top 10 at least. That Let England Shake analogy just irked me somewhat.
It's definitely not an outsider choice. And I don't think you need to drop references to stuff that's more 'popular' on here like the Weeknd and PJ Harvey to try and make it more relatable.
that's a shame if there's nothing like that on here.
all the way through. But never mind.
I shan't be listening to this then.
Deerhunter - Nothing Ever Happened
British Sea Power - No Lucifer
Pulled Apart By Horses - High Five, Swan Dive, Nose Dive
Algernon Cadwallader - Horror
Bon Iver - Wolves
Why? - Good Friday
Maps & Atlases - Artichokes
Lemuria - Yesterday's Lunch
that was stupidly hard, but couldn't decide which Frightened Rabbit song to include
volcano!, United Nations, Youthmovies and Destroyer.
And Wild Beasts for doing something a bit different.
Some amazing stuff obv, some underwhelming.
My favourite release has been You, Me and the Mountain by Maps and Atlases but that's an ep.
3. Bon Iver
4. The Dodos
5. Algernon Cadwallader
6. Frightened Rabbit
8. Cadence Weapon
something like that anyway.
and no less interesting musically. Score! I'll definitely be buying it.
Africa... is just ridiculously good.
love the direction they're heading in with the new ep.
Foals were mentioned a bit too much though.
of Only One Word is the same as the one used for the video right? Because that was just awful compared to the album one.
people, it's losing all meaning and getting just a tad annoying.
The soundtrack to my freshers week hangovers.
but Calculating Infinity won't be topped for me. Only given Ire Works a couple of listens so far and I'm pretty impressed. I even liked Black Bubblegum more than I thought I would.
On the topic of Dillinger, how many amazing videos are there of them on youtube haha. I've just found a new favourite:
that Chris Pennie has left the band. This is just an internet rumour though I'm guessing. The band would be dead without him though.
Barfly for me
Clarity is one of the best albums ever. And Futures was actually really good, especially Kill.
I didn't realise all those members had left!? Thought it was just Todd. Really not expecting much, the Glassjaw we knew is pretty much dead I guess.
I probably would have thought it was Jacob too if someone hadn't told me, apart from the fact that he sounds like a wailing banshee sorta thing when he sings (see 'Dead'). I'm not complaining though, I love that sound.
it's Jonah Jenkins from a band called Only Living Witness that provides the vocals on Grim Heart/ Black Rose.
Nice review. Plagues and Orphaned are current favs of mine.
Converge - Jane Doe
Biffy Clyro - The Vertigo Of Bliss
Thursday - Full Collapse
Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun
Interpol - Turn On The Bright Lights
Mew - Frengers
i hear there were no female vocals at all for the Don't Look Back gig
I doesn't get any better than Oceanic! Well, the new song as Supersonic sounded quite cool, so i guess we'll have to wait and see.
his work on Ghost Reveries was astonishing too
of all the Smiths lyrics to choose...
