“Did Kings Of Convenience break up? This is not a rhetorical question; I can’t find confirmation either way” Are you serious? How about checking their official Facebook page? It takes literally 10 seconds to see that they’ve been playing concerts every summer since 2009. So, no they haven’t broken up. Same goes for The Whitest Boy Alive – he just takes it very slow with all of his projects.
Can’t believe “Sacrilege” didn’t make the cut
You Are The Quarry #8? What? Is it International Clickbait Week again?
aaand my weekend is ruined.
1. Cherry Peel
2. The Gay Parade
this is awesome.
Didn’t he at one point play sax in the Dirty Projectors? Not so weird at all.
they’re officially baaaaaaaack.
where is my new Spoon LP? it’s time to stop this Divine Fits nonsense
Holy Shit, “Step”. So good.
“Thinking of a Dream I’ve Had” is so underrated. They hardly play it nowadays but I still believe it’s the best song they’ve ever written. It should have the same status that “The Rat” has.
this sounds absolutely nothing like Hot Chip
AHWT at number 9? No way.
Transcendental Youth at number 3?! No way!
Album: Dirty Projectors – Swing Lo Magellan
Song: Todd Terje – Inspector Norse
Video: Rhye – The Fall
New Artist: Elite Gymnastics
TV show: Mad Men
I wholeheartdly agree with the top 4 but Summer Sun is such an underrated record.
Yeah, that’s just puzzling. Expectations! I Don’t Love Anyone! And those two aren’t even the best songs on that record.
Let’s agree to disagree, shall we?
3. Push Barman
4. Life Pursuit
5. Arab Strap
(big gap here)
6. Write About Love
7. Fold Your Hands
8. Dear Cataatrophe Waitress
(Waitress at #2 is just insane. Mediocre songs, terrrrrible production. Ugh)
Can’t happen soon enough *fingerscrossed*
“Keep Your Eyes Ahead” is one of the more underrated albums of the past 10 years. This song, however, not that good…
Great Song. But 128 kbit/s-download? Is it 2002 again? Goddamit.
In light of how many of those reunion albums turned out to be absolutely fucking terrible (Stooges, Big Star… seriously, the list is endless. Dinosaur Jr. and Mission Of Burma are probably the only exceptions) i’m totally fine with acts who just keep on touring and not releasing anything new. Remember Bam Thwok?
They’ve now got the same problem as Spoon. They reached that certain plateau where ir’s kinda difficult to get yourself excited for a new album by them because, literally, their whole output is so consistently great.
