I’d love these guys even without the rough Scottish brogue and sweet post-punk, landscape-rock goodness. Best band name of 2009, paws down.
yippee. After the initial shock, I’m lovin’ it. Thanks for the re-design, and especially for installing the douchebag-filter to weed out all the weak-sauce PR phony comments. No more guilt-free sniping from the interweb shadows, time to own up suckas!
he must feel like a tourist in all these big cities…
rock that gender diversity, SGum. Progress = reported.
you can tell by the way they use their walk, they’re ladies’ men… (with no time to talk)
wow, folks are still heated up about this un-surprising popularity contest over a year later? All I can say is at least there isn’t any god-awful rap-rock on here… oh wait, didn’t see Korn and Kid Rock there. Bah-wit-da-DOH!!
p.s. please Brandon, Amrit, and Scott, let this thing die.
all the mediocre alt.rock and Timba-lame solo output of this band’s frontman hasn’t changed the fact that his greasy yowl has still got it… whatever it is.
As for me, all the wrongs of the past 12 years can be forgiven with two simple words: Spoon. Man. I’m still together with that plan.
good call on that Cornelius comp. I’m excited to hear the rest of what this album holds, but I’m hoping for more access to the darker side (Do the Joy was a good start). Parts of this song make me feel like we all live in a muzak submarine
this tops the “Ghetto Supastar” rewrite of Islands in the Stream for cringe-worthiness. O sh*t I just outed myself as a Kenny&Dolly fan. At least it’s not as bad as what Puffy did to the Police AND Led Zeppelin
thank you everyone for elaborating… or did your attention span wander off before noticing this is a song for a movie based on a children’s book?
if I were expecting a Yeah Yeah Yeah’s song, I would be feeling overdressed right now. This song nails the wide-eyed magic of the story, and anyone who has actually READ the story should be able to follow KO’s youthful rendition here
be Kurt Cobain? Wes Scantlin from Puddle of Mudd just creamed his jeans
well, I feel sufficiently rocked. Nice to see Jonesy getting back on stage for something massive
ever since the Weez took to the stage with the glittery, winged “W” back during their Green album tour, I’ve been waiting to hear Butch Walker’s name in a sentence with them. 10/1 odds Butch-man joins them on tour – get ready for The Marvelous 5, for better or worse…
top-drawer! However, whether part of an excellent parody video or no, Charles Nelson Reilly making sweet love to a manatee is not something I ever wanted burned into my braincase…
“Eura-SIA! SIA! SIA! SIA!” had me choking on my skittles. Here here!
they obviously consider it a challenge before the whole human race / that they’ll never lose… their complete originality. Oh well, I agree they covered Radiohead on their first album, then covered themselves (on repeat) on their last album, so at least they’re broadening their horizons somehow. They are the champions, my friends
I would rather listen to him than anyone at Fox News, regardless of subject. The guy made a song out of John McLaughlin sound bites, fer chrissakes
wow… Jay’s gotta be pretty uncomfortable walking around with cojones the size of soccer balls in his trousers
after playing Satan for the D, it’s a good balance to play the White House, especially with so many people treating Obama like Jesus last year (*ZING!!*). I do kinda miss the rawness of Grohl’s early days, though, but if he’s on the kit for that JPJ/Homme project, that should redeem a bit.
“God money I’ll do anything for you. / God money just tell me what you want me to.” Wow, things sure have changed here on Goth-Industrial mountain…
With NIN on “indefinite hiatus”, I guess Rez can finally get back together with Kubiszewski and start a band called Stabbing Eastward…
oh, that’s proper nice. Got kind of a James Bond on valium intro, with those sinewy moogs. These Frenchmen never disappoint – I can’t wait to hear the rest of this album
after all that they’ve been through, I know that Dave and that Llama will make it.
I love these melancholy French electronic geniuses, but I gotta say it – this is more like Air Supply. They’re makin’ Love 2 outta nothing at all.
that backing band is great. We have timpani!
