Holy shit. Sisterworld is amazing. Just rocked the fuck out half the time upon first listen.

Oh, and also, I'm buying this in March and always do so after I download new shit (or any shit, for that matter I guess). Support musicians--they work their asses off and we reap the benefits. *steps down off soapbox

If I were to buy every single album I downloaded this year. I would spend roughly 12K (at 15 a pop).

That's not happening. That said... I spend much more on music than most (as much as I can afford really...).

yeahfontaine
01-17-2010, 10:41 PM
Holy shit. That's a lot of music.

I guess when you factor in what shows you go see, too, then it ups the amount we put toward supporting musicians.

I feel quite disappointed by the new album, quite a few people were saying it was the new Drums not Dead which is one of my favourite albums of all time, but when I gave it a listen it just kind of passed me by. Maybe i should give it a few more listens, I really hope I get to see them again, I saw them in Liverpool on thier Self-titled tour supported by Deerhunter. Easily one of the best shows i've been to.

I should have been more specific. There are entire string sections on WIXIW. This is immaterial, I just wanted to bump a Liars specific thread because the new album is fine apple wine.

Truth. So what's the speculation of what their set lists are gunna look like? I'd love to see reinterpretations of Drums Not Dead tunes with these new instruments, but a man can only dream.

schoolofruckus
05-29-2012, 02:54 PM
I would like to see a lot of Drums Not Dead, along with "Houseclouds" and "Sailing to Byzantium", which would presumably fit into these sets more organically than in the past few tours. Also, I hope they don't forsake "Broken Witch" because it always makes me want to riot.

It's a great sign that I put on Drum's Not dead and kind of just want to listen to WIXIW again. They've got something special on their hands here.

That's really hard to hear when you're writing a song, and it's not something I've really opened up to before. It's all made within the computer. Still to this day I'm trying to figure out how I made some of those sounds. Experienced electronic artists would probably save some presets or whatever, but I never did that when I was working, because I get excited about things and move on.

Oops.

In other news the vinyl copies finally shipped today from the sandbag site. 10-20 days.

I hadn't thought of it that way, but I wouldn't disagree with this. I, however, find it much more comparable to Kid A. In fact, "His and Mine Senses" sounds like a straight up Kid A b-side or something.

This new one didn't do much for me at all. And I dont really hear the Radiohead-ness that many of you pointed out and even recommended it for. His and Mine Senses is the only song I really enjoyed. I'll have to revisit it in a couple days.

I got a wax dipped LP on Saturday. Sandbag was nice enough to send me sealed LP and wax dipped cover in a plastic sleeve since the paint was still little wet:)

and for those that ordered single 12", you should have received an email saying it's being delayed since the members didn't have the chance to sign it yet!

I could see the number of songs going down due to new instruments being used and them not wanting to lug around guitars and other stuff if they are focusing on electronic instruments now, but I might not know what I'm talking about.

I sort of meant it as a joke, because it's from Drums Not Dead. But I also don't know the track names on that one too well because I usually listen to it front-to-back. Then I listened to it this morning and....yeah, the joke doesn't work.
