I guess the band is a specific sound/style that may not appeal to everyone though, which is fair. Influence and such is undeniable.
I was the one being snarky. Anyway, it's time give MBV another shot. I do this with semi regular intervals anyway, so why not now that they've released a new one.

really underwelmed with MBV on first listen but thats how i was with loveless, and most of my favorite albums ever, so this might actually be a good thing

WTF, I'm sometimes full of myself, but did I just thank myself?

I'm losing my mind. I was trying to figure out who recommended this song but this isn't helping out

Not a lot of albums catching my attention in January, but there have sure been a lot of good songs.

1. Wardell - Opossum
2. MS MR – Fantasy
3. Widower – Jumper cables
4. Strokes – One way trigger
5. Voyager – No hibernation
6. Callahan – Obliv.
7. Dutch Uncles – Flexxin
8. East Cameron Folkcore – Salinger is dead
9. Shlohmo – Later
10. Serafina Steer – Night before mutiny

Saw MS MR at a festival yesterday and they absolutely killed it. One of those sets where no one's really that excited at first, but everyone's swelled forward by the time they're done.

The best part, though, was just how charmed the singer seemed to be that it was going so well. I got the feeling they'd never played a decent sized show before.

Kings of Convenience also, somewhat surprisingly, a knock out live.

My favorite album of 2013, so far, is the new Widowspeak.

Have to admit, I'm finding myself slightly underwhelmed by the new mbv. It's not bad, and a couple tracks are quite good (notably "is this and yes" and "only tomorrow"), but it's really feeling more like background music to me. That said, I haven't had a chance to listen to it at a real volume level yet.

I should add, it's probably easy to slough off the idea of being "underwhelmed" as just the lazy reaction of someone who had unreasonably high expectations based on waiting 20 years for the Loveless follow-up, but that's not really the case. Rather, it just doesn't seem as alive a record as I look to hear...less from the 20 year wait, and more tied to changes in what I've listened to over the intervening years.

And I should have written the entire post in lower case, given the topic...

Nice, thanks.

I just started using exfm today. Anyone tried it? Seems like a pretty sweet tool to collect songs you like posted soundcloud, bandcamp and blogs. Also scrobbles tracks to last.fm.

Man, I really think the MBV is an instant classic. Maybe I'm just being a biased fanboy, but I can't remember being this instantly floored by an album. "In Another Way" in particular is just an insanely great song imo. Love how the beginning of the album is sort of Loveless part two, then it gets increasingly experimental and interesting.

I guess I'm just the xx homers of this year's thread maybe?
02-04-2013 , 08:56 PM
Too early to make such a big call iyam.

I really like mbv, but never adored Loveless like I was meant to. A friend who has been obsessed with that album as long as I've known him, though, is really under whelmed by the new one.

At the risk of stating the obvious, an album like mbv will be subject to individual expectations and reference points more than most.

New Vampire Weekend album announced for 7 May.

02-05-2013 , 11:40 AM
i'd prefer a new DISCOVERY album. LP was an extremely good album, top5 in 2009.
02-06-2013 , 04:03 AM
I don't think The Weeknd will ever release a song I don't like.
02-06-2013 , 07:46 AM
Wow, Duflocka Rant 2 is crazy good. Standouts on first couple listens (though I like pretty much every track): Bad Decision, Fell, Can't do golds, **** where you sleep
