i know i probably shouldn't start a new thread for their new album on here but i'm so excited about this that i did it anyways. i still think AM is, by far, the best thing they have ever done so yeah i'm excited.

they are coming to Los Angeles and playing at Hollywood Forever Cemetery and tix are really expensive. i didn't know about this new album, now i have to go to that show. the only other show i saw there was Spoon's They Want My Soul tour and it was a very memorable night.

Their last album was their best, but I'm American. Surprising longevity too -- my college students still know every song licensed for commercials. And I hum "Fireside" and "Why'd You Only Call Me..." every couple months.

I was lukewarm on these guys for years until Humbug got its claws in me, which is still my favourite album of theirs although I've warmed to some of their other tracks. It's funny how their debut continues to get all the praise when it's comfortably their worst LP. I'll be giving this a listen.

it's funny, looking back on the reviews for AM and seeing the comments now i guess there was/is a lot of love for that album, but i've always been under the impression it was the point where a lot of people stopped being on board for them.

personally, listening back to it now and remembering both the reason i didn't dig it that much back then (feels a bit rigid, kinda underwritten) but also have a lot more time for it for what it does do well

not among 21-year-old Miamians! I saw them in 2010 for the Humbug tour in a half-empty auditorium; in 2014 they sold it out.

hah, not surprised there—when AM came out, Alex Turner became the unofficial face of a lot of music tumblr. guess i remember a lot more critical backlash than there actually was, although i still think that NME 10 was a bit much

slight side note: there's gotta be a cover band a la Mexrissey for these guys, right? like the Arctic Mexikeys or something

I've noticed the usual suspects are vomiting their snark about the return of this band elsewhere, but it's great to know they're going to put out some new stuff.

the Hollywood show has sold out before i was able to get tix. not as bad as today's news in the UK regarding tix, that's a bit insane. one minute and they were gone.
