cynical answer: how to dress well fits into a storyline

yeah shit, this is totally max music

max, Thursday, 18 November 2010 07:50 (3 years ago) Permalink

also gayngs doesnt use enough triangles in their aesthetic

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 (3 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 (3 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 (3 years ago) Permalink

ah i see thats been covered. good sport.

max, Thursday, 18 November 2010 08:01 (3 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 (3 years ago) Permalink

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

max, Tuesday, 23 November 2010 08:36 (3 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 (3 years ago) Permalink

"No Sweat" is great also, yes.

Tim F, Tuesday, 23 November 2010 09:30 (3 years ago) Permalink

1 month passes...

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.

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.

dope vid!

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...

3 weeks pass...

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 original 'cry' fucking rules

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

lets agree to disagree

max, Wednesday, 23 February 2011 08:09 (3 years ago) Permalink

nah this is shit.

srsly have no idea why this cover exists outside of hipster lols look all my pals are in a video recreation + look we can pitch shift too. its completely terrible. and lots of these peeps are great when they're doing their own thing, but its like their shitty one off "lol aor" joke is the fucking critical bees knees. wtf

O_o-O_0-o_O (jjjusten), Wednesday, 23 February 2011 08:25 (3 years ago) Permalink

sorry to go so aggro, im just so bummed out that this seems to be the new face of the MPLS/STPL music scene when it is just so laughably awful and irritating in every way

O_o-O_0-o_O (jjjusten), Wednesday, 23 February 2011 08:28 (3 years ago) Permalink

pretty sure lots of ppl like it for more than 'hipster lols'

just sayin, Wednesday, 23 February 2011 08:43 (3 years ago) Permalink

well i think the point is that it's NOT going for lols & instead it seems to most ppl like they have a genuine appreciation for the music

pop the s1ock (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 23 February 2011 08:46 (3 years ago) Permalink

huh

i mean im glad to be wrong, but nothing in their version of the video says anything other than "pomo obscure reference that people will get if theyre in the know oh shit look we got that actual old dude to be in our video check it" to me. obv part of this is that i think the cover itself is pretty much 100% nudge nudge get it awful.

and sorry if im being a jerk to people that actually enjoy it, i just have no idea why they do.

O_o-O_0-o_O (jjjusten), Wednesday, 23 February 2011 08:53 (3 years ago) Permalink

i agree w/jjjusten

also "they have a genuine appreciation for the music" is really not an adequate defense - i have a genuine appreciation for mariah carey - doesn't mean anyone needs to hear me try to emulate her - i know this and so should gayngs, if they can't actually pull it off, which they can't

lex pretend, Wednesday, 23 February 2011 09:13 (3 years ago) Permalink

"they have a genuine appreciation for the music" i'm only using this as a defense against the idea that they're in it for lols

pop the s1ock (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 23 February 2011 09:16 (3 years ago) Permalink

"they have a genuine appreciation of the music" is only being said in response to people who erroneously assume the project is "lol aor".

Whether it's good music or not is a separate question (it is though, FYI).

Tim F, Wednesday, 23 February 2011 09:18 (3 years ago) Permalink

i don't really know, it's impossible to really, what their genuine motivation is, but i think the accusation, here & elsewhere, of a band being "in it for the lols" comes when their music is an overt attempt to mimic or revive a particular aesthetic that gets it not-quite-right, so it's part & parcel of their failure of execution

It's not an overt attempt to mimic though lex, they're mixing all sorts of ideas.

Tim F, Wednesday, 23 February 2011 09:20 (3 years ago) Permalink

You don't even like any of the stuff they're influenced by!

Tim F, Wednesday, 23 February 2011 09:21 (3 years ago) Permalink

they're mixing failed attempts at good ideas with straight-up bad ideas

lex pretend, Wednesday, 23 February 2011 09:21 (3 years ago) Permalink

Like for example I don't know how anyone can look at that live video 20 or so posts up and not get buried under the smug grossness of it? This is not a bunch of people appreciating anything, it's a gross "oh shit lol let's all wear white tuxes" lampoon parade.
