I dig the new intro! In the context of the album, maybe the old intro works, but I’m glad they switched it up for the single. This song just became a near perfect single.
Cheers to Asobi Seksu, one of the best in the business right now.
You guys take everything too seriously. Which gets a boo.
Ezra and the Discovery boyz breaking out a tune about drunken nights at the disco gets a hurrah. Because it’s infectious and carefree and makes most people wanna dance.
Plus it’s summer and plus there’s an abundance of indie music out now that takes itself so fucking seriously, which (don’t get me wrong) results in some awesome songs and albums, but this stuff is a like an upgrade for you when you feel like listening to something with a beat and some r n b flavor–an upgrade from turning on the top 40 rap station. Anyway, it’s great for what it sets out to do, which is entertain. Ezra’s voice is sugary as well.
Wow, I have to say both this video and the one for Knife just distract from the quality of the music for me. The imagery contrasts too much with the song, tone-wise and lyrically. I have to admit, just now was my first time watching either of these or hearing either song, but I really enjoy the experience more of just listening, without the video.
In other words, video director FAIL!
This video was beautiful, especially for a low-budget, fan made video. I have to say, though, I thought the lyric was “tall in stature and exceptionally READ,” not “exceptionally RED.” I am nitpicking, but I am sure he could easily edit that one bit and he probably should if he wants them to make it the official video.
Great coverage! The video/sound would be a welcome addition if it ever surfaces…
Also, it’s *Michiko KAKUTANI
Record store day was awesome!!!
Firstly, saw Telekinesis live at Sonic Boom Records in Seattle. Then, was delighted to find a Thao/Thermals split 7″ to go along with my CD choices, the new Camera Obscura, “My Maudlin Career,” and Death Cab’s “Open Door EP.” Also got the Camera Obscura “French Navy” 7″. It was a good day.
Thanks. I appreciate you clarifying that. BITCH
Ironically, I found fewer grammatical errors in this post than in any of his previous posts that I’ve read. ( ” I’M SURE THERE’S GRAMMATICAL ERRORS IN THIS… THAT’S HOW YOU KNOW IT’S ME!”) Kanye, you never cease to puzzle me!
RIght you are. Thanks for letting me know about Blip.fm… I needed enlightening. Sorry everyone.
Thank you. That’s basically the sentiment I was getting at. You were more tactful…haha
