Am I the only one who liked the Telekinesis album a lot? Very surprised it isn’t getting any mentions.
I’m loving this album. Had it pre-ordered through Amazon for about 2 weeks and ever since it came I haven’t been able to stop listening to it. Only a few bands have debut albums which have captured my attention from the first listen as much as this one has. Matador always signs the coolest bands and Savages are no exception to that. Glad Stereogum gave it album of the week honors!
I went last year and had a great time. Raleigh has had trouble getting this sort of variety in the past and I’m very excited about this year’s lineup!
I hope one day we can have a world where Amanda Palmer stories won’t be stories on account of whatever stupid shit she does will be accepted as the norm for her.
She has the mind of a psychotic child who feels entitled to attention, and she should be treated as such. Send her to the corner.
It was hard not to cut myself on edginess of this comment.
Tyler isn’t a homophobe. He just doesn’t care about a lot of things, including word choice. Their is a difference between saying a word with hate and saying it in a different context.
That being said, based off the leak, Wolf didn’t really do much more for me then I thought it would. It didn’t suck but wasn’t really special either.
you need to watch this to understand why it’s hilarious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qMAzn4s1_g
Ghana will always be my favorite album by them.
Good list though
“You look like him, you look like him.” Penn Badgley, you don’t really look like him…
I wanted to see them at Hopscotch, but was busy. I was very surprised when I heard only ST 2 Lettaz showed up. I hope both of them put out some solo work soon!
I downloaded it. The Killers have been my favorite band for about the past 6 years.
Haven’t been this excited in a while.
Did I break the rules by listening to it when it leaked?
I’m not one to declare anything “album of the year” until the year has actually elapsed, but I really have enjoyed this more than most of the other stuff put out this year. Shields was worth the wait!
