Find Me On:
Is Kirko Bangz’s name supposed to sound like Kurt Cobain? Because if so, yuck.
I’m finally starting to listen to The New Pornographers, because for some fucking reason they slipped under my radar all these years. Starting with the first album. So far they rule.
Came here to say the same thing. It’s a really fantastic record.
I’ve been listening to ‘Free Your Mind’ a lot lately since the deluxe version is coming out soon, and MAN, that’s a great album. When it first came out I didn’t like it as much as Zonoscope, but it’s grown on me a ton since then. It’s a shame it went slightly underrated. (It’s also a near-perfect summer album, I think.)
Man, that’s right on schedule. An album every four years since 2003.
Young the Giant also have a song from their latest record called “Anagram” that is seriously one of the best “modern rock” (whatever that means) songs of the year. It’s in 7/8 time, for goodness sake. 7/8!
What’s similar about that Christian rapper’s song and “Dark Horse”? Just the little synth line that doesn’t even use the same notes? I don’t see enough of a similarity to warrant a lawsuit.
The thing is, Demon Days is always mentioned because it’s the favorite, and for good reason. But I’m gonna defend Plastic Beach as one hell of an album. I honestly think it’s every bit as good as DD.
I’m so glad you included “Demon Days” as part of “Don’t Get Lost in Heaven” and placed them at number two. Those tracks have always felt utterly perfect…heavenly, even.
Oh yeah man, “Doncamatic” is a KILLER tune. It’s a shame it was relegated to just a one-off single. It would be in my top ten for sure.
