anyways yr totally right, its awful music -- blatant incompetence mustered up as art. just sometimes, idk, you catch yourself nodding your head to the hand clap beats & getting into that big lo-fi reverby wall of sound. against all better judgment

a lo-fi wall of sound seems to fundamentally misunderstand what's good about a wall of sound

disagree completely, but that's to be expected. massive walls of sound are one of the few things that fuzzed out, bargain-basement lofi recording can really get across.

grateful dead's (circa '74 - you can actually see em rehearsing at the bottom of the pic) - they called this set up 'the wall of sound', hence...

you wont need me where im going is pretty affecting imo but it has nothing to do with r&b

How To Dress Well is an exercise in nothingness. I don't get the adoration at all.

Thing is: strip away the appalling production on HTDW's records and when you see Tom Krell live, suddenly he's ace. He does a particularly good song over a loop from Jacko's Baby Be Mine which is great. I don't get what all the 'fashionably distressed' piss poor recording technique is about on his studio output... (which there's also too much of).

Duran (Doran), Saturday, 16 October 2010 01:44 (4 years ago) Permalink

his cover of "i wish" is really good

agree w/ doran's last sentence

I don't understand why How To Dress Well is getting all the critical plaudits and everyone has forgot about Gayngs. I enjoy this much more.

man i need to start paying attention to music again. this is great! and its been out for months!

cynical answer: how to dress well fits into a storyline

yeah shit, this is totally max music

gayngs is from minneapolis (right?) and htdw is from brooklyn/germany?

max, Thursday, 18 November 2010 07:50 (4 years ago) Permalink

yes altho i think HTDW is/was based in chicago when he started poppin off

also gayngs doesnt use enough triangles in their aesthetic

max, Thursday, 18 November 2010 07:51 (4 years ago) Permalink

I love this album! It's like if A Mountain of One had decided to make an entire album out of "Freefall" rather than "Innocent Line".

this got me really excited but if anything i wish the album sounded MORE like freefall

max, Thursday, 18 November 2010 07:52 (4 years ago) Permalink

I was sat in the garden listening to it at the weekend and still love it. I really worry about stuff that's got a bit of a pot head sensibility to it but this is amazing *in spite* of all that stuff - especially the sleeve 'concept'.

Well this is a general principle w/r/t all rock pretty much, I would think.

Poor Gayngs, so close to being triangulastic:

Tim F, Thursday, 18 November 2010 07:54 (4 years ago) Permalink

yeah, if only there were more freefalls. but ill settle for more im not in loves, i guess. is that old kevin godley in the "cry" video?

max, Thursday, 18 November 2010 08:01 (4 years ago) Permalink

ah i see thats been covered. good sport.

max, Thursday, 18 November 2010 08:01 (4 years ago) Permalink

OK, I give up. This rules. Wish I didn't wait so long to hear this, as I have a few friends involved. I don't love Bon Iver, I think that's why I avoided it initially. Hope the rest is as good as "The Gaudy Side of Town."

haha this whole thing sounds like it's been made up for a WFMU Best Show call-in

"last prom on earth" is actually one of my least favorite things here, but it seems to get high praise? idgi. "faded high" people!

Tim F, Tuesday, 23 November 2010 08:28 (4 years ago) Permalink

besides gaudy side of town and cry, i like 'no sweat,' unsurprisingly

max, Tuesday, 23 November 2010 08:36 (4 years ago) Permalink

Faded High has graduated to my favourite track on the album also.

(Chub Licker was a reference to the anticipatory Fall new album thread which was around when I first posted this.)

Carl Jung Jeezy (Doran), Tuesday, 23 November 2010 09:15 (4 years ago) Permalink

"No Sweat" is great also, yes.

I may never get to hear the album because I just keep listening to "Gaudy Side of Town" over and over again.

Live version is just as wonderful.

The Amy Misto Family Knife (Plasmon), Tuesday, 4 January 2011 05:13 (3 years ago) Permalink

This album was surprising flop. Don't think I saw it on a single 'top ten of 2010' list. I thought this shit would blow up. Maybe they should have sang more about the beach.

yuoowemeone, Tuesday, 4 January 2011 09:58 (3 years ago) Permalink

Man this record really falls off at the end doesn't it. Still, the good stuff is pretty damn good and 'Gaudy Side' has been my nonstop jam for a while now....

one of my most listened to albums of the latter end of the year, but seriously this thread title. i never would have clicked on it had i not been searching for it

jaxon, Thursday, 13 January 2011 20:42 (3 years ago) Permalink

I thought the title of the record was chub licker for the longest time. Glad I didn't GIS it.

WARS OF ARMAGEDDON (Karaoke Version) (Sparkle Motion), Thursday, 13 January 2011 20:46 (3 years ago) Permalink

This really reminds me of the 'National Trust' album from a few back 'Dekkegar' and a bit like some of the Shaun Smith stuff...basically White Americans take on R&B...

If I'd heard it before the poll, I'd have put Relayted right near the top of my ballot. I absolutely love it.

Bernard V. O'Hare (dog latin), Friday, 4 February 2011 14:27 (3 years ago) Permalink

Why are people comparing this to How To Dress Well? That album didn't move me at all. This however, this is like being hurled into orbit in a tiny metal spacecraft while listening to Radio 2 under heavy sedation. It's got more in common with Ariel Pink than anyone else, if only for the "pop through a dirty lense" approach.

the last ten seconds are awesome

peacocks, Wednesday, 23 February 2011 01:42 (3 years ago) Permalink

finally listening to the album, this is rad

i was totally disappointed though when that cliche romantic electric bell piano patch showed up at the end of "crystal rope" and it turned out to just be interlude noodling and not the intro to a real song

ciderpress, Wednesday, 23 February 2011 07:23 (3 years ago) Permalink

this is the worst album in the world, and the fucking up of the totally awesome original godley and creme is its feed you a crap sandwich calling card
