Find Me On:
I like the concept, I just wish the result was better
I’ve always felt these guys are fun to see live but not very exciting on record. This was a funny interview though
I’m in favor of the additional members in this version of Unbelievers. Makes it sound more full and junk.
Ezra’s dancing eyebrows are endearing
It seems they’ve steadily gotten better with each late night performance after being quite awkward at first. I love the heavy drums in this version (well, heavy for She & Him)
Letterman is a toolbox. There, I said it
The answer to your question is drugs
He may not have a firm grasp on adjectives but he knows his Deerhunter songs. Coronado is the shiz niz
1. Nothing Ever Happened
2. The Missing
3. Little Kids
4. Coronado (I’ma sucka for da sax)
5. He Would of Laughed
7. Fluorescent Grey (I’m impressed and pleased that this made it on the gum list)
8. Spring Hall Convert (Cryptograms is my least fav of the albums but this is a grand song)
9. Desire Lines
I wish I’d of known of it’s previous existence. I recall the majesty when the studio version of “Brothersport” was leaked after it was toured so awesomely. Succeeding in exceeding high expectations
Also, the beginning of “Worship You” reminds me of “I’ve Just Seen A Face” by the Beatles
After I was a bit let down by Contra this feels like a real return to form. I second the Unbelievers love and would also submit Worship You as a favorite track
Lets give credit where credit is due people. Jim Morrison is the Jackie Robinson of on-stage sex acts
I skip through these videos and I can’t help but notice that no one appears to be having much fun. They’re probably there just to say that they were…there. I’d be the asshole that would start yelling for a different song about an hour or two in. This is like a restaurant being fully stocked for thanksgiving but only serving mashed potatoes. Give me turkey or give me death
I’d be more impressed if Berninger belt out Mr. November for 6 hours
I agree with what seems to be the consensus that this is a darn good song but I’m a bit put off by the chipmunk additions to the chorus. Hope that aspects a grower. I love the driving drumbeat and soft background piano
Rambling note: I don’t like watching a lyric video on my first listen of a song. Feel like it’s difficult to truly focus on a song and make an opinion regarding it if I’m also reading along and interpreting lyrics, while a good music video sans lyrics can enhance the experience for me. I’m generally a good multi-tasker (I swear). Maybe 3rd of 4th listen I’d go the lyric route.
“Neil: There would have to be a symbolic burning — people going out in public and wiping their iTunes library for everyone to see. “
This song always reminds me of Built to Spill, in a good way (good like gravy)
Here I thought I knew all of Built to Spill’s music and then I see that I only have Perfect From Now On through You In Reverse. I gost some catchin up ta do! They’ve always been the sort of band that I like and would recommend, but have never fallen in complete love with. I saw them last year for the first time and it increased my infatuation with him severalfold. Great show
It may not be the most hard hitting track, but I think it has some good elements here that will translate well to the studio. A good slow burner similar to “Someone’s Missing” or “I Found A Whistle”
I always check out these R.I.P. posts to see who passed away in the music industry even if I haven’t heard of them. But you lost me after 4 words. Cuck Fountry, right!?! That phrase didn’t work as well as I thought it would. Mall hats make it look easy, but it isn’t
R.I.P. Country Music Legend
LESS BABIES AND MORE MAKING FUCKING MUSIC.
Just kidding. I love babies. Congrats to the couple, I couldn’t imagine cooler parents
Premature Evaluation? More like Overdue Evaluation.
Cox seems to have the worst luck when it comes to leaks.
I am really diggin’ this record, so far I feel it’s better than Halcyon but a bit below Microcastle. Time shall tell.
I thought it was funny, he has good taste in korean ladies and the music wasn’t terrible. Compared to most of the pure shiz that is popular these days, this could be much worse
It is ironic though that Jason Molina’s record label was “Secretly Canadian”, because if he was secretly a Canadian then he may of gotten the medical care that he needed
Levity aside, R.I.P. Ja-Mol
When Kirk Cameron summons me to heaven, Canadian’s will be left behind to live in purgatory until their sin of universal health care is paid for in torment (exception: alan thicke)
This would fit in well towards the end of Oracular if I may say so. I like it! I have high expectations for this record, these boys have never let me down befo
