you're wrong, gotobed is a great drummer

mostly otm re this album tho. i also am picking up a this heat vibe, especially on the last track

Not saying Gotobed was bad, he was just more motorik and less flamboyant. He was content to be the canvas.

Hell, I even like the video. No one comes to my Dionysian blood wearing Prada.

that song kinda reminds me of a slowed-down Fuck Buttons. I like it

Somewhat bizarrely, they are soundtracking the videogame Max Payne 3, with a soundtrack album released 15 May:

haven't listened to it yet, but am interested. i'm not a huge video game player, but i'd be interested in hearing how their music worked within the context of the game.

when i saw that they were doing this it reminded me of the linkin park discussion that happened upthread.

Only "Tears", which appears in the promo video, is really like their prior work. The soundtrack album is otherwise instrumental, with their excellent drummer playing Brazilian (as is the game's setting) percussion at the forefront.

new album is pretty good. huge step toward pop accessibility IMO

Not much difference with Get Color on the pop accessibility front, the most notable change to my ears are the drums are pushed up in the mix, and way more aggressive on around half the tracks.

LIFE is a good direction :)

cheesiness works well with them vocals imo

LIFE is so incredible! Like an emo teen pop song, covered by an industrial band.

Adore this album.

Tim F, Monday, 19 October 2015 20:28 (eleven months ago) Permalink

Although it does sound like Beach House's Bloom plus power saws.

Tim F, Monday, 19 October 2015 21:14 (eleven months ago) Permalink

really not digging the mix on this. i could def get behind an even more tuneful/vox-focused HEALTH, but it feels like every time they want to bring something noisier into it there's no no punch. maybe i have a bad rip idk, that would be a pleasant surprise.

franklin, Monday, 19 October 2015 21:48 (eleven months ago) Permalink

maybe a bad rip? the noisy bits seems punchy enough on the vinyl pressing. the vocals are high in the mix but it's meant to be a pop record i reckon.

lol @ beach house plus power saws. i would pay good money to see that show.

Surprised that this isn't a bigger deal than it is.

Tim F, Tuesday, 20 October 2015 20:49 (eleven months ago) Permalink

I feel vindicated in liking it if you're on my side, Tim!

Well I am a corny fuxx so

Tim F, Tuesday, 20 October 2015 21:25 (eleven months ago) Permalink

Yeah, this is album I come back to a lot.

Rod Steel (musicfanatic), Wednesday, 21 October 2015 00:22 (eleven months ago) Permalink

His vocals oscillate somehow between New Order and Placebo.
