He did it right before bringing out Carrie Brownstein too. Good stuff and rightly so because that performance was crazy.
Mildly disappointed with this. Kind of goes nowhere. I don’t see the comparison to BH/Devotion at all… :(
Hey he spent like six hours making sure he blurred the last card real good! Cut him some slack!
PUT MY FIST IN HER LIKE A CIVIL RIGHTS SIGN
Album is out the 14th, not the 7th : )
This year is ridoodoodiculous. Jesus Christ. Or should I say Kanye West?
Is this album called Woman or The Fall?
This is so fucking welcome. Continues their bizarrely intriguing evolution they fumbled with on Angles and is already ten times more focused than the majority of that record.
Late Registration should be #1, Graduation should be higher. Opinions!
This is not what lives in my head when I listen to this song.
I bought this album when it came out at midnight and it is so unbelievably good. Destroys the first five volumes. ‘The Midnight Clear’ is straight up folk heaven, on par with almost any cut from Illinois.
This is good. I like this. The horn section part at the end was pretty fantastic.
Announce album three, like, now, dudes? Please?
Well I, for one, love Paint a Vulgar Picture. It just goes on forever (quite beautifully, I might add) and really nails the song’s message into your skull.
For me, 2012 goes like this:
1. Bloom-Beach House
2. Channel Orange-Frank Ocean
3. In Our Heads-Hot Chip
5. Shrines-Purity Ring
6. Kill for Love-Chromatics
but yeah, this is pretty damn amazing.
This is, uh, pretty good. It’s a good album with a lot of good songs on it.
So neat. Everyone should buy Something; it’s the best record of the year so far for my money.
That was weird but worth it for the last 3 seconds. Port of Morrow in 20 days!
Such a great video. Glad to see the Shins’ streak of amazing videos is still going.
Did I see Robin Pecknold there for a few seconds?
Beach House and Vampire Weekend spring to mind as missing from the list…Vampire Weekend is absolutely recording LP3 right now, Beach House is more hopeful optimism
Completely agree with everything up there. The best way to describe El Camino is to just say it’s fucking awesome. No more, no less.
no Black Keys?
Yo, A Great Big Sled and Don’t Shoot Me Santa are BANGERS! Definitely not forgettable. This video/song is nice but I am still just eagerly anticipating LP4. I need another Sam’s Town. I NEED it.
Sweet. I will buy that.
That was incredibly queer and I completely loved it. Death Cab just does what they do and they do it well. Best song on the album. It’s nice to see Ben Gibbard finally just being really happy.
