i want to hear the synth bassline on fall in love so loud that it makes fillings fall out

Yeah, I'm really loving this record. Didn't have much high hopes for the album based on the Flaming Lips and Big Boi collabs I'd heard (hadn't heard the first record), but this is just wonderful.

It didn't take long for my local alt-rock station to drop it off their playlist but Fall in Love is song of the year for me...

somehow avoided hearing this until the past week when my band's sometimes vocalist recommended them (she's a big kate bush and 80's pop fan); not exactly what I was expecting but Voices is a really awesome record.

I listened to these loads a couple of years ago and forgot about them! Thanks for the reminder

er I mean in that I'm going to actually go and download some stuff and listen to it properly
this new album is fine, lots of griping about selling out but they do bombastic over the top pop pretty well.

some fans seem very angry that she is now sexy looking.
― akm, Thursday, 27 October 2016 18:25 (two years ago) link
Hmm. I don't really know what anyone in the band looks like; I just like the two albums I've heard.

idk I was with the olds and were far enough back that I could see them performing and the visuals
― mh 😏, Thursday, 27 October 2016 18:57 (two years ago) link
I stand back far enough for the band to not be distracted by how sexy I may be
― mh 😏, Thursday, 27 October 2016 18:58 (two years ago) link
that's very considerate of you

good god, I knew they went with a full studio collaboration environment major label style but the credits on some of these songs really get into the "room of heavyweight songwriters/producers" territory
I keep listening to "Run Run Blood" and the credits are
Sarah Barthel / Josh Carter / Eric Frederic / Terius Nash / Christopher Stewart / Dan Wilson

i dont' know who all those people are except for her so I'll take your word for it
― akm, Friday, 4 November 2016 02:33 (two years ago) link
first two are the bandEric Fredric aka Ricky Reed:Ricky Reed has received RIAA platinum records for two Jason Derulo singles: Talk Dirty ft. 2 Chainz (4x Platinum) & Wiggle ft. Snoop Dogg (2x Platinum).
Terius Nash aka The-Dream and Tricky Stewart, if you'be heard any pop radio in the last decade, you're familiarand Dan Wilson wasn't immediately recognizable but he's a go-to songwriter, apparently responsible for his band Semisonic's inescapable "Closing Time," one of the scourges of my high school photography darkroom time in that the radio station would play it at least twice per hour

catchy song think tank going on in that studio

I am not gonna lie, I would kill to be in a position to work with ppl like that

I know, right?

in retrospect I don't think that album holds up nearly as well as the earlier ones. also I liked her fake english accent on Voices and now she seems to have shed that.
anyway I gather a new one is coming as they have a tour this summer
