i remember the same sort of feature last year for the MBV reunion and the year before because of the shoegaze documentary... recycling is the new law
shepherds bush empire in about 1 hour and 45 minuts.
why there's not an edit button anywhere?
silversun pickups don't sound anything similar to loveless.
i will add asobi seksu
and a sunny day in glasgow
i think this feature is badly done. where are serena maneesh or asobi seksu???
is a really good 4ad recent singing!
have to play!!!!
awful and grey world with sissy hits!!!
but i jumped and sung along with calum. this band have some superpower, after the gig i was feeling happied and better.
Dananananaykroyd can heal you!
only x-large left yesterday night. :(
obviosly with the rigth production and mixing this band could really take over the world.
gave 8.4 to this album, and never said that sound dated or like No Age.
everyone will blame you for an album low sales even if when you signed the band there was enough buzz: nme radar, DiS discover piece a good national tour etc and everyone at the label agreed that was a good signing. While an A&R could argue that he or she signed a potential 'next big thing' but the marketing people weren't able to market it. The worse thing is that everyone then will say that the band wasn't very good.
good to see that some of the writers on DiS can call themselves music journalists as many of them can barely write a review, i don't mean the editors but some of the contributors have a very poor music knowledge.
I agree with everything the guy wrote on this article and it is really really annoying but we created all this with our blogging and our downloading and discovering band and album before they see a release date. I can blame only myself for the status of this industry and the UK and USA music journalists are only giving us what we want. this is something that is not really happening in some other countries, they still think with their own brains and not with one giant BRAIN that says black kids are the next big thing with adele and lykke li. My next big thing last year was yeasyear and i'm glad they had some recognition. this year my next big thing are broken records. I like Adele, but she should have been signed by universal and not by XL... this is all very depressing.
nothing i special, are definetely better live then on record.
apart for that small radar thing with the singer of cut of your hands (average band) and calum
i love them and love them and lvoe them!!!!
that you can read about on the simon reynolds book.
and the video with the origami is so cool!
is the V2 thing.
Now apparently universal is hiring some of the people used to work at V2 to avoid paying too much taxes so they are gonna open V2 again.... bah!
and heather from au revoir simone sings on few of the songs.
how the vocals sound.
i liked the review anyway.
for £26, i don't understand why you spent £30 and more!
Anyway i did buy a ticket and i'm proud of it and i won't ask for guest list!!!
as NME wrote they sound like MBV and they play shoegaze.
Can someone explain to NME's peeps the difference between the two genres?
Yeah, it is a comfortable post-rock album but you didn't mention the vocals and these are a point of difference between Aerial and their very evident influences. Post-rock purists won't like the the Sparklehorse falsetto vocals.
Apparently this new single has some great remixes and one by Ulrich Schnauss.
is Lizzie from Land of Talk, isn't she?
wrote on their overhype
this is obviously a joke from the DiS peeps!
pitchfork doesn't have a community, does it?
thanks to brilliant reviews like the one above!
He was a genius and a dreamer, two qualities that most of the people working in the music industry today don't have or have totally lost because of the money and the charts.
Thank you for everything Tony!
it is boring.
i think who cannot hear the heavenly played by sonic youth infouences on songs like All my friends is definetely deft!
and bono must die is great fun and is not a shoreditch band at all!
Florence and the machine is great, i saw her live at the fly and i love her voice.
There's also lightspeed champion!
Some of those bands are pretty shit but well thats's because weekender records has its own stage!
is out now in the uk and citrus from where thursday is taken will be finnally out in the UK too!!!
The best post mbv!!!
needs to market the album in some way and to build a profile for the sophomore album Citrus.
And the reviews are really good, the band didn't have any press out in the uk before i reckon the label, on little indian is only building up the band's profile.
the V2 website???
saw them also at the barfly few months ago and they're good live but the album is not great and it also been slammed by few usa key magazines, good party band live but boring album.
i saw them twice and i would never point them as one of the best band at the festival!!!
Laurence bell has to spend all the money he made with the monkeys or is gonna be overtaxed! And we can also say that he didn't have a brazilian buzz band yet.
