I have always felt the same way and never bothered to see them live, but I saw them at Rough Trade last night and it was actually very fun. They are not the most energetic bunch, but the music translates a lot better live than I thought it would and distracted from any lack of charisma the band has.

I third the Adult Jazz praise! It’s such an arresting album. I can’t stop listening to it.

These guys are definitely the best band I’ve discovered so far this year. Thanks for all the great coverage of them!

Since this is so similar to her SNL performance so I don’t have much to comment on, I’ll just say that the keyboardist looks just like one of Joker’s henchmen from the 1989 Batman movie.

This is a fantastic read. Thanks for posting.

This is a great song. Really digging it.

No love for James Vincent McMorrow’s Post Tropical? It’s a fantastic album in my opinion. Later Bon Iver/James Blake territory, but also something fresh about it. Highly recommended.

Arctic Monkeys are the band with by far the most quality B-Sides, and also among the more generous bands in terms of sharing non-album tracks. They probably have another 2-3 albums worth of quality songs available.

There’s a band called Lightning Bolt with an album called Pearl Jam? What a weird coincidence!
