‘The Mother Lode’ inspired me to comment at 3am. It is genuinely one of the most beautiful things Thom has ever written. The vocal melody is tearing itself through me; like the melodies on Separator gave birth to their own world.

And some Meltybrains while they’re at it!

The week I complain about Stereogum not featuring enough Irish artists sees posts about U2, Damien Rice, Princess and Hozier. Apologies Stereogum, you have shown me the door. :D

Love it. Though I may be biased; I played organ with these guys for a day ;)

I never hear enough Irish music on Stereogum, so I’m super-glad to see Damien featured here; and even gladder that this track is so wonderful.

Reminiscent of some early The Frames https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVMBI5NTlhA

Can’t wait for this album.

Would anyone else like to sign my petition for a Colin Greenwood solo record?

These boys know how to make music in any and every context. More please.

The headline to this article is like one of those Hemingway six-word stories: ‘Baby shoes for sale; never worn,’ ‘Otherwise tolerant rapper denies anti-Semitism,’ ‘Solange attacks Jay-Z; still a single lady.’

Also (though this veers even more off-topic), where does the hate (if there is hate) for TKOL come from? I can understand it not being on a pedestal along In Rainbows (and other rightfully lauded ‘recent-ish’ Radiohead) but the album has many fantastic songs and moments:

‘Bloom’ is incredible; ‘Codex’ is a perfect Thom ballad to add to the canon; ‘Separator’ is a beautiful jam that grows like the album’s theme desires; ‘Little By Little’ is just a great rocker that is so fun and textured. I won’t even start on the B-Sides.

I think I might give ‘Separator’ a spin right now. (These Coldplay songs are also very nice)

I really like Snakes. That is a very good song. The rest seems inconsistent: some good ideas marred by bad ones.

I’m certainly interested to hear follow-up stuff if that’s on the cards.
