Miike Snow is fun, but nearly as good as Erasure

I don't see/hear any similarity.

<3 Miike Snow's album though.
Very excited to see them live

Voila!

Not the videos but the music, of course. There are even much better Erasure examples than the ones posted, but it's close enough to get the point across, I think.

How are they not Erasure?I generally find in my day-to-day that it's relatively easy not to be Erasure for the majority of our shared conscious hours. It can't be that much harder for Miike.

The new Hot Chip album is fucking terrible.

am i missing something here? neither of these examples have that much resemblance to each other at all. the stylistic similarities are definitely present but they're marginal and certainly not enough to characterize miike snow as an erasure imitation. can anyone post a more compelling comparison?

see... that's not really the case for me. I find that I have to continually concentrate on not being Erasure, or I'll slip. Luckily, I get pretty good support from my friends and family.

I don't know that I'd say "imitation" is the right word.

I'm definitely hearing the resemblance....vocally I hear it most

I should've prefaced this all by saying that Erasure is rad, and I'll prolly see Miike Snow at least twice this year. Just... those guys sound like Erasure, that's all I was tryin to say.

i could agree with this to some extent. instrumentally they may both have synthpop/dance elements but i think they have very different styles.

I feel you brother. The Disease is always out there, waiting for a weak moment. Just keep coming on man.
