I’m actually surprised Nineteen was #1, pleasantly so. Cause is probably my favorite T&S song.

Dave, aren’t you left handed?

What, no love for Telekinesis and Michael Benjamin Lerner on drums?

The USA show Suits also uses a pretty blatant rip-off of “Intro”

I like Shut Up, Dude

I feel like the Suburbs is probably going to take it. But it would be really awesome for Land of Talk to make the short list. Cloak and Cipher is an awesome record.

I think it’s pretty good. I certainly like it more than I was expecting too given my impressions of the songs that appeared prior to the npr stream. I still think Narrow Stairs is better, but it feels like I’m in the minority on that. I just happen to really love Narrow Stairs. I love the darkness of it, the super long intro to I will possess your heart, the artwork from EE Storey, the style of font they used for the liner notes, everything.

For the most part, it feels like Ben’s lyrics are a little simpler on this album in both diction and structure, which I find a bit of a step back. I also kind of wished that the jaunty piano part was stripped out of the song Codes and Keys (a la The Ice is Getting Thinner), at least for the beginning of the song. It seems to fit better later in the song. But I absolutely love listening to Stay Young, Go Dancing.

Are we not going to address the cameo by Wes Miles of Ra Ra Riot in that Vampire Weekend clip?

it does seem really tacky… when you have your backup singers trying to do a cursory choreographed dance.

I am so confused.
