sounds a bit like NIN honestly
Listening to Lower Dens all day today
Morby was in the KEXP studio today
Can't wait for that to pop up on YouTube
I haven't had any time to listen to the entire National album, but what I heard has been good. Here is the download link for the next day. I like the addition of the female voices. This seems to be a trend this year with the bigger established indie bands.
I am digging it, seems kind of like they found a good balance of the melancholy of the last album and the more upbeat stuff from previous albums
I definitely love it. I still feel like I want to see them get back to being even more upbeat, quirky, and I love when they have songs that build in intensity. I feel the material is making some of the concerts more melancholy then they were in the past. Ultimately I want to see how they blend the new material into their show before I fully judge. I need to listen a few more times, since it is such a big album, but I am missing songs like...
All the Wine
My favorites so far are...
You had your soul with you (which has been out for awhile)
The Pull of You
this is missing track 1 I think
Omni is so freaking good
And wow Bottom of the Hill has booked some amazing acts way before they ever approached the big time
Melancholy The National is my favorite The National.
Stef Chura - Sweet Sweet Midnight (Featuring Car Seat Headrest)
Lust for Youth - New Balance Point
This national album is tiiiight
The building songs are by far their best live. I hope I am not coming to see them in Brooklyn for a more melancholy show.
i'm more on the sour side of the national album
but I think in a concert setting it could mix well with the rest of their catalog
Love melancholy The national as a recording. At a live show too much can be a buzz kill. Last tour was a little too melancholy for me.
I saw them in Asheville last year and didn't think they were bad at all. Good show. Thanks for the heads up, googling tour dates now
Presale code is usedtobelonely, fwiw.
Are you going to Atlanta or Carrboro?
ATL. I've actually never been up to Carrboro, really want to at some point.
B Boys - I Want
from their new album due out in late July
Hatchie - Obsessed
New Alex Lahey album out today, The Best of Luck Club. Really like it so far.
This Morabeza Tobacco album is pretty enjoyable in a light hearted indie pop type of way. Kind of like an Ariel Pink meets Chvrches meets Beach House type of feel.
this is a fun album
Gaz Coombes - Salamander
well that's a lively one
Nicole Yun from Eternal Summers with another single. This one called And After All
Russian Circles - Arluck
didnt realize olden yolk made a new album, their album last year I felt like was one of the more underrated releases of 2018
White Reaper seems to be hinting at new stuff coming out May 29th....
Guys... the new Head and the Heart album “Living Mirage” is just fantastic... it’s been on steady shuffle/replay mode for me.
Also there’s an LP from a band called Barrie... LP is “Happy to be Here”... also very good... not as good at TH&TH tho
Oso Oso - Dig (II). Album in August.
This Cayla Fralick album is excellent. Man, can she really sing.
who loves molly burch as much as me
My 2017 best of list featured her
She and Chris Cohen are two artists I adore that no one else seems to dig. But glad you're on board too
She filmed a music video across the street from me a couple summers ago
I bet I love her more
I find her two albums to be enjoyable listens
I didn't know if anyone else posted this. But I'm really sad as well. Do you have any recommendations as far as bands similar to them?
Dehd for sure. They broke up so a member could focus on that band
Post Animal or Twin Peaks maybe because of Chicago ties. Hoops (RIP ) maybe. Melkbelly, Ducktails, and The Courtneys maybe up your alley
I dunno they had a pretty unique sound to me. The Drums maybe
Good catch. I’ve dug some of her stuff. Eager to listen.
I have no idea what people see in Mac DeMarco. He has zero talent.
The entire album is great. And it's caused me to go back and rediscover Modern Vampires - which is one of the best indie/alternative rock albums ever recorded. If you don't think so, you're just wrong.
guys, guys, don't get too excited, but Cedric has confirmed that new Volta is in the works
this is probably a touch harsh but yeah his stuff just bores the shit out of me
Mac was the first sellout concert I booked
can't believe you sold out like that joe
