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.

seven months pass...

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...

still can't make it loud enough, i swoon every time tho

one year passes...

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

four months pass...

this new album is fine, lots of griping about selling out but they do bombastic over the top pop pretty well.

Thank you for reminding me to look for this

some fans seem very angry that she is now sexy looking.

akm, Thursday, 27 October 2016 18:25 (three 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 (three 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 (three 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 (three years ago) link

first two are the band
Eric 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 familiar
and 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

mh 😏, Friday, 4 November 2016 04:37 (three years ago) link

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

¶ (DJP), Friday, 4 November 2016 10:01 (three years ago) link

I know, right?

mh 😏, Friday, 4 November 2016 12:23 (three years ago) link

two years pass...

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
