paging Alchemy who championed this album in Blackswan's Album Leak thread. some of us discussed it quite a bit in that thread, bug - i think the consensus was that it was a surprising sophomore effort.
and, as i've said numerous times before, "Mirror's Image" and "Scarlett Fields" floors me. Faris has quite the voice. i'm no longer of the opinion that they're a novelty act.
did you catch them at Coachella? the lead singer put on quite an attitude, but they sounded delicious.
Seeing them open for the Kills next week.
Yeah it was discussed pretty thoroughly a while back, but I literally just got around to hearing it for the first time a couple days ago, and it definitely lived up to the hype generated around here. Pretty great stuff.
There was no way I could have seen them at Coachella... so I hope their live show pretty much blows.
I don't have room for this HD TV anymore, so I'm going to hit it with a sledgehammer so that nobody else can enjoy it.There was no way I could have seen them at Coachella... so I hope their live show pretty much blows.
So Bug did you go see them last night?
They were pretty good but played nothing off the old album which was kind of a bummer since I'm a fan of both even though I'm usually alone here
This is my fav. album of 09 so far(yes, I like this more than Animal Collective, and Grizzly Bear,and whatever else has come out in 09). This is a fucking incredible album. Sea Within a Sea is a hell of a track.
I look forward to downloading it when my emusic downloads refresh (always a long wait). Haven't heard a single song off of it yet.
Did somebody call me? Yes, I love this album so much. Ridiculous that Goldenvoice would put The Horrors against My Bloody Valentine. If I saw them live, though, I would like to hear some tracks from Strange House, because I also loved that album. Even before Primary Colours, they were high on my must-see list for Coachella, along with The Kills, Throbbing Gristle, and The Orb... It's so unfortunate that all these bands conflicted with either The Cure or My Bloody Valentine. Poop.
best album of the year so far
as predicted by nostradamus
strange house >> primary colours
Still not over this album!
