four months pass...
and the new album is AMAZING
not on top, good for no-one and this will never happen especially so...

where's the love, eh?

bogo (bogo), Sunday, 3 April 2005 14:46 (fifteen years ago) link

Any chance of a YSI?

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Sunday, 3 April 2005 15:02 (fifteen years ago) link

Bogo's right. Julie Doiron adds so much to the recipe.

Johnny Fever (johnny fever), Sunday, 3 April 2005 18:32 (fifteen years ago) link

track and field are wasting their time releasing this stuff and other nonsense like broken family band while Kicker's cd sits on the shelf, ugh.

Not On Top
is beautiful.

sibsi (sibsi), Tuesday, 19 April 2005 13:38 (fifteen years ago) link

I will have "Not On Top" waiting for me when I get home. I await eagerly.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Tuesday, 19 April 2005 13:46 (fifteen years ago) link

more details on the new album please!! Is it called "Not On Top?" Who put it out? Where can I get it?

Roger Fidelity (Roger Fidelity), Tuesday, 19 April 2005 20:06 (fifteen years ago) link

"Not On Top". On Rough Trade. Bit more produced than "Mas Cambios", but then again most albums are. Is that the guy from Ballboy on track 7?

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Tuesday, 19 April 2005 20:14 (fifteen years ago) link

In mono, no less. I love this disc. Hadn't heard anything until Fluxblog posted the excellent title track, then I grabbed it. Really a perfect Spring album.

The whole album has grown on me a lot. It's not exactly the kind of record that would interest me if you described it on paper (in fact, I'd probably purposefully avoid it), but it's just so strong. The first two tracks are the best, though.

Matthew C Perpetua (inca), Tuesday, 19 April 2005 21:50 (fifteen years ago) link

rough trade? no, track & field. herman dune are my favourite band in the world. it's a love i've been trying to shake since february because of new and bitter tastes, but i can't. 'not on top' is fucking amazing, a perfect record, best thing they've done. if this was the first thing you heard by them, next you need 'switzerland heritage'.

emsk, Tuesday, 19 April 2005 22:14 (fifteen years ago) link

totally ordering it tonight.

Roger Fidelity (Roger Fidelity), Thursday, 21 April 2005 00:27 (fifteen years ago) link

OK - so WHERE can I order this where it's not going to cost me over $20 to ship to the US??

Roger Fidelity (Roger Fidelity), Thursday, 21 April 2005 00:33 (fifteen years ago) link

you could try their label

but i guess it's the exchange rate that's going to make it expensive.

jellybean (jellybean), Thursday, 21 April 2005 00:50 (fifteen years ago) link

Actually, thinking about it, there must be someone that will sell Herman Dune stuff in the States. I think at least one of the band plays shows in New York pretty often.

Try http://www.hermandune.com/

jellybean (jellybean), Thursday, 21 April 2005 00:52 (fifteen years ago) link

yeah the label's cost, with exchange rate, is over $20

Roger Fidelity (Roger Fidelity), Thursday, 21 April 2005 00:56 (fifteen years ago) link

"Whatever Burns The Best Baby" may be my new favourite HD song. Except their cover of "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?". Are they ever gonna put that to CD?

I like this a lot. It's schmindier than "Mas Cambios".

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Thursday, 21 April 2005 15:39 (fifteen years ago) link

I got it at Aron's records in L.A. for $12.99... they don't do mail order, but that makes me think it's GOT to be available somewhere cheaper than $20...

nyc is like their adopted home city, david more than andre but both of them really - surely they will be back there soon. they're on tour imminently. check www.hermandune.com innit.

emsk, Friday, 22 April 2005 13:38 (fifteen years ago) link

berlin is andré's adopted home city.

sibsi (sibsi), Friday, 22 April 2005 15:24 (fifteen years ago) link


ALWAYS check there first! (In this case, the album's selling for $14.99)

So where's the love for Giant? It's been kicking about on the interweb for a while now but the official release has been put back to March for some reason. Anyway, it's absolutely wonderful - warm, and sad and uplifting in equal measure.
Unbelievably they're going on tour with the Kooks. I don't hold it against them - they deserve the exposure and are sure to blow the NME stooges off stage.

Stew (stew s), Tuesday, 30 January 2007 21:49 (thirteen years ago) link

I have no idea who the Kooks are, so there ya go.

Giant is great - they're moving into some very interesting new territory. While I don't think every song is great, (all but one on Not on Top was), I love the new direction and the risks they're taking with the whole 'mariachi' sound thing. Yeah, I love it.

Swine Spine (Roger Fidelity), Tuesday, 30 January 2007 22:33 (thirteen years ago) link

I really fucking like Giant, probably more than I ever expected to like a record by these guys

I love this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unc_GV4MeSs

Played it about four times in a row this morning on the walk to work.

three years pass...

Video for the new single features a) a little blue dude and b) Jon Hamm.


Johnny Fever, Saturday, 14 May 2011 06:44 (nine years ago) link

I guess you get an advance cd if you star in a Herman Dune video


Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 18 May 2011 00:40 (nine years ago) link

that video is priiime material for a slightly tweaked version of the Photos taken of famous people together that you would never have expected to be together but make you happy all the same. thread.

Antoine Bugleboy (Merdeyeux), Wednesday, 18 May 2011 00:44 (nine years ago) link

The story relayed to me was that Jon Hamm just happened to be in Austin the same time SXSW was going on and Eugene Mirman introduced him to the Herman Dune guys and before you knew it he'd agreed to be in their video.
