their influences are great. Problem is, they're a pretty sub-par garage rock/punk band. I can name quite a few other bands doing exactly the same thing as them at the moment, so I can only put their success down to their clothing style.
Apparently the new album is different though. We'll see.
They're like a 21st century talking heads or something.
FAO Bloc Party: this is how you do 'progression'.
Muxtape was a good thing for the music business, surely?
Tindersticks Tindersticks Tindersticks Tindersticks
United Arab Emirates?
or University Of East Anglia?
The thing is, Radiohead made genuinely brilliant musical progressions with Kid A. I really doubt anyone will be holding this in the same regard in a few months time, let alone a few years. Mercury is laughably bad IMO.
there's some awesome stuff in there, and the prices aren't too bad. The staff have never seemed that friendly though.
but it's lost its identity. Of course it has to expand and renew itself, but you don't buy a 4AD CD knowing what it's going to sound like now, which you might have done 20 years ago. So for that, I don't think your statement rings true.
where the singer of nickleback had a long running feud with one of the writers. he later sent him some flowers.
that the organisers were arrested. And that Mark Ronson was paid in pound coins.
must be the earliest leak in history. Shame, really.
Looking forward to the new Hope Sandoval and Massive Attack records if either of them ever come out.
brilliant Northern Soul era Verve.
that video is brilliant.
it says so in Rock Sound!
luke pritchard from the kooks.
as opposed to what, music for 'grown ups'? Come on...
Much much better than anything off 'Urban Hymns'. It sounds less Ashcroft and more of a whole band thing, which is good news.
better than that sonic turd Strawberry Jam anyway.
I'm gonna order this NOW.
they're big enough to 'do a radiohead' and surprise people with the album, rather than sending out promos for anyone to rip months in advance.
the new album's ace as well.
compared to jo fo, anyway.
Mystery Jets are DULL.
Sorry Truck - you lose.
shoegaze-lite which isn't very interesting after the third listen.
I believe. They're on Release The Bats.
but there's nothing on this record that their debut didn't do much better.
should record more.
I should go just for the sake of it.
but the album is goooooood.
will be there I believe.
They haven't come close to matching the quality of 'Knife Play', and they seem to be repeating the same idea with a different instrumental backing on every album.
Good shot anyway!
<3 Johnny Foreigner.
and I've only played it once.
Gui Boratto however is my new favourite person.
but their singer sounds too much like Eddie Argos for me to take them seriously.
but the podcasts were brilliant. Can't argue against that.
