The War on Drugs! and Future Islands. And Iceland….
Enjoying that part for the first time as we (I) speak.
“They weren’t content to be pigeon holed; they weren’t lazy.
I think the problem people have with a band like Best Coast is that they seem to have no desire to move forward.”
I guess that’s kind of the question though. Sure, bands could get lazy. But I think it’s important to acknowledge the difference between a band ‘honing’ and polishing their sound vs. just lazily writing the same thing over and over. And I think it’s just as respectable to develop and finesse your own sound as opposed to reinventing your sound or pushing the envelope. I think the Walkmen are a great example of this. their sound has changed, but especially over the last few records their sound has been more refined than changed.
Yes! there it is. this one is still my favourite. Thank you, Michael, for following through.
Loop stations, and reverb, and delay, and more reverb….
Is this like a flash mob or something?
The Darkness are very good at what they do. I’m glad to see the original line-up back.
