Is that what goes on in those "cool" churches?

Nothing like religion to ruin a perfectly good song; although it would've been nice to see a pit form when they kicked it into "Oh, Night Divine".

Bizarre S Carey packaging question: the CD packaging looks like it has space for two things - a CD and a booklet, I suppose; possibly two CDs - should it come with a booklet or is it just a packaging quirk?

So, I'm the guy who's never liked Bon Iver, but who thinks the two new tracks sound pretty brilliant.

that tumble linked above is pretty hilar.

lmao at that tracklist, did he just discover Aphex Twin?

The two tracks I've heard really are v good.

Lucid Vanguard started as a music sharing process between Karl Remus and Warren Thomas Fenzi. Feeding and flowing off each other, they share many aspects of the songwriting process. To bracket them in one genre is to do them a disservice. Thoughtful vocals infused with neo-soul, world music and R&B beats. Borrowing from the method of Bon Iver and the dissolving of the ego that often comes with the singer/songwriter denotations, this band seeks a higher musical consciousness through what they create. What can be said for sure is that what Lucid Vanguard has released so far gives us a taste of the beautiful future for sound they are currently crafting.

a bunch of my friends played sax on this.

good stuff? they are playing in st. paul soon

haven't heard it yet (i don't think they have either), nor are they in the touring band. sounds like the recording was a cool experience though.

sam jax sax jam (Jordan), Wednesday, 17 August 2016 16:24 (three months ago) Permalink

I looked at the trackless, and it sounds like there's a bunch of sax on it. The whole project seems weird, but I love it so far, and I did not expect that.

Ahh so Justin finally listened to that copy of Age of Adz he had lying around

you think Lou Bega gave up after Mambo Number One??? (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 17 August 2016 18:48 (three months ago) Permalink

33 God is pretty good. the main things different from the last album are the programmed drums & samples floating about. the 80s soft rock at the core of these are basically what the last album was

wow this is stunning

Not my thing, these two new tracks. Perhaps in the context of an album I'll enjoy them more. I remember loving the first single off the s/t and then disliking the record a great deal, so heh, who knows.

Van Horn Street, Friday, 30 September 2016 03:29 (two months ago) Permalink

Second LP left me completely cold; two listens thru the new one and I'm utterly blown away. One of the freshest approaches to music I've heard in some time.

this is pretty good

i could do without some of the data decay stuff tho

bitcoin bajas (diamonddave85), Monday, 3 October 2016 18:54 (two months ago) Permalink

This seemed really impressive on my first few listens. Some of the grotesquely over-Auto-Tuned stuff is hard for me to stomach, though. I feel like he's really driven that aesthetic into the ground.

Evan R, Monday, 3 October 2016 19:41 (two months ago) Permalink

this is like when you download some gimmicky Waves Audio plugin demo and dick around making junk sound all goofy until it runs out

Pull your head on out your hippy haze (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 3 October 2016 19:53 (two months ago) Permalink

Obviously there's a lot more craftsmanship and vision to it than that. But it does sound very gimmicky, at times distractingly so.

Evan R, Monday, 3 October 2016 19:59 (two months ago) Permalink

This is absolutely terrible. And that's coming from someone who has much love for his first and mostly his second record too. But this is just straight up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. It's idealess. Using effects for the sake of it. Coming up with dreadful tracknames for the sake of it.

You can't just transform or further develop by merely using vocoders, autotune and "mysterious" song titles, you know. It takes soul, a sense of direction, and neither is even remotely present on the new record. Shambles. #trenchant

"8 (Circle)" really reminds me of Marc Cohen the "Walking in Memphis" guy

This is great. Fuck music with soul and direction.

Frederik B, Monday, 3 October 2016 20:42 (two months ago) Permalink

Don't know if you are a first time customer to Bon Iver, Frederik, but if that is your stance you will hate his first two records I suppose.

I'm all for auto-tune and vocoders. But a teeny weeny bit of genuinity would be nice. 22, a million, offers none.

this shit is all about some old fashioned "authenticity" bullshit, he like goes down on bruce hornsby and indigo girls ffs

wow this shit is so crazy zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Pull your head on out your hippy haze (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 3 October 2016 21:04 (two months ago) Permalink

I do hate the first two records, lol. Bon Iver, Bon Iver was my worst album of 2011. Hate is not too strong a word. I'm quite surprised I like the new one as much as I do as well :)

Frederik B, Monday, 3 October 2016 21:16 (two months ago) Permalink

idk this doesn't really seem like the huge departure from the last one that people are claiming. the methods of arriving are different, but ultimately he's always making goopy watercolors of songs based around his voice.

i need to spend more time with this. i don't know if the sounds he is working with here really do the songs a lot of favors but maybe i will change my mind about that.

Likewise. It'll be interesting to see what sort of stamina this album might possess but wow, I sure am reaching for it a lot this week.
