Do you ever get the impression that us indie fans are just suggestible morons like everyone else?

Yeah, Etienne is no longer the drummer and I don’t think he recorded on Days (I might be wrong). The drums (and the musicianship in general) sound a lot tighter on this album, which I actually think is to its detriment. If you listen back to the drum tracks on their s/t debut (the propulsive railroad beat of ‘Beach Comber’; that weird rubbery flex in ‘Pool Swimmers’; the flat thud of ‘Suburban Dogs’; the splashy toms in ‘Fake Blues’; the ride/jam block groove of ‘Let’s Rock The Beach’), they’re much looser, which is fundamental in cultivating that insouciant atmosphere. That said, it’s still a lovely album, with some gorgeous turns. I think it’ll grow on me with time, but I don’t think I’ll come to love it like I do their debut.

I think Stereogum are basing this on his stage presence though, which doesn’t come across on record, of course. As they said: he’s a handsome dude, he dresses smartly, carries himself well and puts a lot of power behind his vocal performance (I know, I know, “if I like him so much, why don’t I marry him?” etc, etc). Plus, as anyone who’s witnessed their live performance of ‘All Hands And The Cook’ will testify, the guy can hold a throat-rippingly high note for a ridiculous length of time:

That was actually a re-release. THIS is the much anticipated, and inevitably disappointing, second comment.

“breaking wind on a lot of these young acts” – think you might be looking for a different expression there…

You don’t sound sorry.

It wasn’t, Denis. Not that you’ll be inclined to believe me, of course. In any case, if Tom Hanks has made a pretentious movie I can’t think of it: he’s made a career out of playing the ‘everyman’.
