Yeah, what the fuck? He's ripping off a song that he played drums on.
I've listen to the new deefhoof vs evil a couple times and I like it so much that im going to check their older stuff especially milk man album.
Is it me or does the singer for deefhoof remind you of the singer for shonen knife?
Deerhoof rules. go see them on this tour!
also check out Friend Opportunity, The Runners Four and Reveille. although, i think all their stuff is good (but still unsure of the new one...very different sound they went for, including fucking spanish guitar?!)
I was really put off by Braids Native Speaker. It's like she's taken the best of Joanna, Fever Ray, and Animal Collective and made something disgustingly awful with them.
The new Smith Westerns is quite good, but not as good as their first album. The better recording quality is really nice, but the tunes are not as strong. Still, if you liked the first album, you will be into this.
You have definitely succeeded in getting me pumped for this. However, check this out: http://solidlittlerockjams.blogspot....ily-thing.html
It's possible they're just fucking with us and the leak is a noise deconstruction of the actual album. Take it for what it's worth. It's a good read regardless.
I Was a King - Old Friends is pretty enjoyable. It clocks in at just under 30 minutes and the titular song evokes a ton of nostalgia. Ya'll should check it out.
i'm so glad i listened to this before buying a ticket to their show here. pass.

No, it isn't. The Smith Westerns, that is. It sounds better in terms of recording quality, but in my opinion the songs aren't as strong. It is still really good though.
check out the video hereFirst Listen Live: Iron & Wine Debuts "Kiss Each Other Clean"
Iron & Wine is the stage name of singer-songwriter Samuel Beam, a former film professor who has released mesmerizing indie-folk albums and EPs to critical acclaim since 2002. Tonight, Beam joins us with a full band in The Greene Space to perform Iron & Wine's upcoming album, "Kiss Each Other Clean," in its entirety for NPR Music's First Listen series. It will be the first time fans can hear the album before its release on January 25.
the new Deerhoof (Deerhoof vs Evil) is really growing on me. it's certainly more staid then their previous recordings. but, the more mellow jams demonstrate an interesting level of growth that, for me, doesn't take away from the weird, spasticness that i love so much about Deerhoof. Satomi's singing is much more melodic this time around, which makes me wonder if they'll gain a wider audience now (since her singing style/voice always seems to be the thing that people so frequently hate on about Deerhoof). And, her bass playing just keeps on getting better (keep in mind that she joined the band a week after coming over from Tokyo in '95...with ZERO musical experience whatsoever).
and, in this day and age of albums being brickwalled to high heaven, i have to give Greg (Saunier - drums) massive props for his fine job of mixing and mastering the album. finally, it's nice to see that moving to Polyvinyl hasn't forced them to give up their DIY ways as revealed in the the liner notes, which read "All songs played and recorded by Deerhoof in Deerhoof's practice room and Ed's basement."
this one's worth a listen.
Loving the Yuck album. I've been a fan since the first time I saw them live and the debut has lived up to my high expectations. Their influences are pretty obvious (Lush, Pixies, Dinosaur Jr and Teenage Fanclub) but they just write such great tunes.
Another one that has caught my ear is the debut from Anna Calvi. Sounds like PJ Harvey scoring a Tarantino movie.
Just listened to the Decemberists' new one, and didn't have anywhere near the negative reaction that some of y'all have had to it. Yes, it's another head scratcher that makes you wonder exactly what Colin is trying to do to the band's future. But I've never been super into them in the first place, nor have I ever taken them too seriously, so my expectations probably weren't as high as some going into this record.
This Esben & The Witch full length, Violet Cries, is pretty great. Makes a good companion to Zola jesus.
I am on track 8 of the new Decemberists and i think it's great! i don't understand what there is to hate about this, it's really pretty.
yep...really pretty shitty.
at least you've gotten through it enough to hear "Fight"....the only keeper.
Is it because it's really country-influenced? i honestly have no idea why you think it's shitty.
it's because i am tired of Colin Meloy's adventures in mediocrity....get over it already, dude.
but, yes, the twang of this LP does not appeal to me, personally. like i said..."Fight" is a wonderful track, though.
To each his own, I guess. i was actually fully prepared to not even listen to it because of the negative reactions here, but i kept reading good things everywhere else so i grabbed it and totally love it. Weird.
sadly, what Bryan said. i just hope that fucker comes back big.
