Find Me On:
Oh wow. I’ve been a fan since the beginning, but both of these are better than expected…
Now this is more like it. I was hoping Britt would use the opportunity with a new band to widen his musical palette, instead of recording songs that sound EXACTLY LIKE SPOON SONGS!!!!
and yes this is something great.
An updated version of (Biding Time Is A) Boat To Row???
Well, I’m loving this. Huge fuckin Spoon fan.
But after hearing Would That Not Be Nice and now Flaggin a Ride… well I guess I just hoped that Brit would take this opportunity to do something different. I mean, they both sound like Spoon songs. Like, exactly like Spoon songs.. right?
Seriously though, cool.
To be fair, each record is meant to be stylistically different…
Catchy in a way. But yeah… hmmm.
The “Lyric Video” certainly didn’t do this track any favors, that’s for sure.
yes. this is… well i was going to say better than expected. but actually its exactly what I expected, and its great.
there has to be an album coming, right? I mean, I know they already did Fool’s Day as a one-off single, but, c’mon…..
So what, everyone’s just completely over that shit? I’m just sayin, those tracks will always find a way into my Summer Cruisin’.
However, Japandroids and Walkmen just recently delivered a double-punch of perfect-summer awesomness that I think will have a hold on me for quite a bit.
Oh well, I still have Videogames and Blue Jeans on my Summer Playlist.
Adore is easily as underrated as Mary Star.
God I hate giving into RJ, but shut up kid.
Just shut the fuck up.
i don’t know how i’ve misse dout on this so far, but, YES. Thank you. This his funny. As Shit.
This being NME, I’m surprised at the lack of U2 songs – only saw “ONE”. The 90′s were the best period for them.
well it’s hard not to be serious about it with lyrics like that…
i dunno. big turn-off for me.
I’m hearing Rutili.
Hey. You’re cute.
But you keep talkin’ bout the Shins on these NEW lists – that single came out in January and the album is out now too – doesn’t mean you/we won’t love it for the rest of our lives, but thins move fast here on the internets.
Old news ;)
Jason Lytle – Department of Disappearance
I’ll give it a YEP.
Yeah, well, I just hope Danger Mouse can wrangle them in. Simplify the production. More drums (duh).
Always a decent band (U2), but overproduction has killed them since All That You Can’t Leave Behind (some gems on that one though).
is it just me or does it seem like they are over-exposing this album?
kinda like noel gallagher’s high flying birds last year, the release date seems to have been set a bit far out, and they (The Shins? The record company?) try to keep the hype rolling by releasing new songs/videos every damn week.
i mean, i know i don’t have to listen if i want to wait for the record, but who can resist?
it’s like the spoiler-filled viral marketing of movies now. teaser sights, 3+ trailers and tons of clips/interviewsmaking-of material put out before the flick hits the screen.
good track, though.
Sweet. Lytle’s Department of Disappearance will be out this summer already and now *maybe* a Grandaddy release will come of this.
Must make sure the Talkscapers know of this…..
the TALK SHOW HOST soundtracked scene is awesome
