Confusing the ingenious Bored to Death with Cusacks Better Off Dead is a travesty!
Damn, this things gonna be out in less than 2 weeks. That just hit me. Hey NPR, hook sum bruthas up and give us a First Listen next week.
I’m with ya too my man…that is a really great summer album & slightly reminiscent of Pains of Being Pure at Heart. It carries that sorta vibe to me for some reason. And that Jungle album is a fun listen (albeit loses grip as it goes along) but still good stuff.
Ya know, I’m a pretty loyal Interpol fan and any fan will attest that they have drifted a bit over the past few albums with Our Love/Admire being their last infectious Interpol album. Did Carlos leaving have something to do with it? Maybe, I don’t know.
But what I do know is that these releases from El Pinder are about the closest thing we’ll probably ever get to Antics or Bright Lights….and this song is perfect example of that. I’m not looking for innovative indie rock when I play Interpol, I’m looking to seep into brooding NYC scuz. Love these guys.
This is no different than racial profiling IMO. Fuck you, FBI. Fuck you. And fuck the local swingin dick pussy cops who hide behind their badges passing judgement. There was one who actually pulled over a truck just because it had an ICP bumper sticker. This story makes me wanna puke.
There. I said it. Felt good, too.
Such a Stone Roses groove that it almost borders on copyright infringement. Me likey.
One thing I know and I’m certainly no Lester Bangs, is that if I’m loving it on first listen, then chances are it will move to my pile of old CDs much more quickly
I think we need to put the noble calling for Syd to bed…I’d say the band moved into a pretty good direction after 1968.
Now, to have been able to hear Gilmour and Waters contributing on new Floyd material would be so fantastic….problem is they’d kill each other about 4 minutes into it.
Good news is that this new material being formally entitled ‘The Big Spliff” is, let’s just say, encouraging as far as what we may be able to expect. Either way, I’m in.
It’s the only truly alternative song among this list of dog crap so I guess in an weird way it’s the practical winner. Good song. Great Album. Horrible ‘song of the summer’ pick.
