Has anyone seen CHVRCHES live? My sister roped me into going to a show with her, I like what I've heard of theirs but I've never really seen any electropop or whatever you call it acts live, just wondering what to expect.
Had the pleasure of seeing Darkside perform live the other night at Mountain Oasis festival in Asheville, NC. Nothing short of breathtaking. They pretty much played the album in order from start to finish and I just couldn't stop smiling. Nico never disappoints. The live version of "Freak, Go Home" was insane. They start their North American tour in January. I'm not sure where I'll be residing at the time, but I'm going to try and catch at least one of them.
new AF sounds like they want it to be their "sandinista."
I didn't know till yesterday that James Murphy had produced the whole thing. Way too much LCD influence on it sometimes for my taste (and I love me some LCD).
Btw does someone know the story behind the guitar work on "Normal Person". I know a band like AF are musical gods with their backgrounds in music, so how do you let that guitar lead make it on to the album? It literally sounds like the way I played solos when I was 14.
