I just returned to Neon Bible last week for the first time in a while and it was better than I remember. I’d like to see at least one more song from that record make the cut.
“Dude that has sex with pigs for money but only as a side thing right now, I’m just short on cash and have irons in the fire but in this economy it’ll have to do my name is Lenny.”
Maybe my Animal Collective fandom makes me biased, but I love “Doin’ It Right (feat. Panda Bear)”. I also enjoyed the tracks featuring Pharrell and Paul Williams (they’re married, right?).
Bright Eyes was my gateway artist in high school. Ten years later, I can still tell you that my friend handed me a mix CD with the following songs: Lover I Don’t Have To Love, Perfect Sonnet, Waste of Paint, Calendar Hung Itself, Bowl of Oranges, and Sunrise, Sunset.
I played it before it was removed and YouTube is letting me replay it. So, if you want to hear it, come on over.
I would like an extra camera permanently fixed on the audience during performances such as this. Then place that frame in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.
This is the route I prefer to go when constructing a year-end list; favorite vs. best. I don’t have the scientific method or background to magically deduce who created the best music, so I’ll just list what I enjoyed the most in 2012.
Are they just upset that no one cares about Incubus and 311 anymore?
They must have played “Father Time” at P4K last summer, because it sounds familiar.
The remixes really focus on Gotye’s voice and lyrics.
I enjoyed this walk down memory lane. I’m only two years older than you, although, I didn’t run across this album until two years after its release. It changed everything about how I listen to music; understanding writing, who I listened to – not to mention how I started to see the world around me.
This explains what I thought was déjà vu.
Sounds hauntingly like E.L.O. – “Don’t Bring Me Down”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tl9yP_llY8s
They’re from San Francisco and he wore a 49ers jacket; I think that’s pretty great.
Why they thought this album needed 15 songs, I don’t know. Shrink this album down to nine or ten tracks and polish up the new tracks and you may salvage something compelling.
I saw Gang Gang Dance this summer and thought to myself, “Weird, is this dude going to contribute anything to the music?” After ten minutes, I realized that I watched him more than any other member of the band and immediately rescinded my original judgement.
“@rpecknold: @grizzlybear just started demo’ing, hope to be done by summer! Class of ’09 bound.” Sounds like Fleet Foxes will release a new album. It also looks like Grizzly Bear will release an album as well. I’m also looking forward to a new record from Ben Kweller.
