I suppose he can be a bit all over the place live at times. A few months ago, he played two amazing shows in Austin though. The first night was performing material from Clear Moon & Ocean Roar with a full band and it sounded amazing. The second night was in a basement-type venue where he basically took anyone’s requests and played a bunch of classic Microphones songs. He even played my request for Solar System and I got to talk to him for quite a bit afterwards. I thought he was a really cool guy myself.
A tie for 2nd place?
Who is #1????????
Black Thought stepping in for the missing members was amazing.
Oops, this was already said while I walked away from my computer and returned without refreshing the page.
Panda Bear sings Chores, not Avey Tare. Just sayin’.
Great record but I would love to have more songs with Amber on lead vocals.
It will be sad if Christopher shys away from playing these great Girls songs he’s written at future shows.
Should have been #1
I definitely hear the gap closing on the difference in sound between the two acts. Halcyon Digest did sound more like Atlas Sound with a few of the songs even seeming to be just Bradford by myself. Parallax nearly abandons all of the electronic leanings that I found to be a major aspect of what differentiated Atlas in the past from Deerhunter. Having said that, I think this is an amazing record and already one of the best of the year.
