Max the King of All Wild Things
Find Me On:
Goddamn 2013, you are killing me with the awesome music.
I love it, but I’m equally as interested in hearing how their remixes of it will sound now that they’ve announced that.
And they are all Thomas Pynchon who is really just Slothrop scattered across the zone. Poor Rocketman… poor fucker…
Yeah I don’t get this either. Based on all the prerelease interviews, leaks, etc the album was basically exactly what I thought it was going to be.
And it’s fucking great.
I love “Dance Yrself Clean,” but I think “Get Innocuous” is the better album opener. Just builds and builds and builds. I love that damn song.
Also, yes. Much agreement on being happy this isn’t a slide show.
When has Daft Punk (two guys that always wear LED robot masks, tour in a giant pyramid, have people refer to them as ‘The Robots,’ made a mostly silent movie starring them, turned one of their albums into a musical anime, not only regularly buy YSL clothes but have them design their entire get up) been anything but “self-indulgent?”
I’m not disagreeing, but I feel like all their stuff (save, maybe, Homework) has felt pretty self-indulgent. Discovery certainly did at the time which was largely a component of the weird reaction to it.
Human After All is completely redeemed by Alive 2007.
Yeah, I definitely dig it.
And so much agreement with that last statement. It’s really nice to hear something that hasn’t been compressed to hell and back.
I think it’ll take some digging into. It’s always intriguing to watch the ebb and flow of the comment parties and how the reaction unfolds past the initial listening. I remember the Animal Collective one which was impressively positive throughout, but the following weeks found the excitement dying down considerably. I think RAM is sort of a curveball in terms of expectations, so I’m curious to see how people continue to react to it.
Seems unlikely. Though I saw on some website that the single is supposed to come out today. Here’s hoping this rumor is true.
Eh, Pitchfork’s last Strokes review told them to break up, and while I wasn’t wild about the album, that was a pretty fucking dumb conclusion. They haven’t really known what to think about The Strokes in a long time.
I like Bankrupt! quite a bit, but I don’t think I could’ve written this much about it. It’s fun and really great pop music, but it’s just sort of there. Then again, I always had trouble returning to Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix because I felt that album’s one-two punch of openers hurt the rest of the album overall.
You should check out The AV Club. Huge fans of the magical healing elixir that is that Laurel Canyon sound.
It’s pretty funny he picks that line too since I think Shaking the Habitual REALLY has some “songs” that never seem to end.
Only thing in my mind:
Mine was because of I, Robot.
No, not really. I’ve never had any. :(
It’s pretty similar. I think that’s because they both sound really similar to “Canon in D.”
If I move my eyes slowly back away from the screen while staring at those words will I see a hidden picture?
Well, that was disappointing.
The real reason why this news is A Pretty Big Fucking Deal is that a new Daft Punk album makes it more likely for a new Daft Punk tour, and I think we’d all be A-OK with that.
I am OK with all these details.
Feel good song of 2012
Not fair. I want this to be a full thing.
RECORD IT, PLEASE.
Wow. This does not sound at all like the AV Club review lead me to believe. I’m really digging it.
Swap Geologist and Deakin.
That AC Newman is the standout track for me. It’s just really nice to hear such a pleasant and straightforward tune amongst all the electronic stuff–which isn’t bad or anything, but I seem to be growing kind of cold on it lately.
