    Listening to the Real Feel for the first time right now. two songs in, the first i got R.E.M. vibes from and the second one... kinda Neil Young at times. I had little idea what to expect but it seems aight. I really never write posts without listening many times but thats what I got so far.

    For those looking to tag correctly, "Ladies and Gentlemen" is the title of the hidden track on The Real Feel.

    I really like this album. Was pleasantly surprised. And it's kind of depressing that people don't realize his impact on Pavement. I would argue that a lot of Pavement's experimental qualities come from SS, as much as I love SM.

    and... while Im listening.... You always hear critics saying Pavement was aping The Fall and I never really thought it was that apparent. This latest Spiral Stairs album on the other hand has lots of Mark E Smith snarl.

    Yeah... to beat this album up too much you would have to be really critical. These songs are "decent" at worst. I enjoyed the first PSoI album the most and this latest is "decent" but to say this guy purposely piggybacked fame his entire career would be stretching it.

    That's complete nonsense jbchervin. This is a fantastic record. It doesn't compare to Pavement's classics, of course, but Kannberg more than shows us he is a competent songwriter here.

    pitchfork ripped him a new one. they are right though. as great as he was in pavement...he is quite a forgettable person and kind of uninteresting. Preston school of industry also is definitely one of the most laughably awful band names ever. I don't mean to beat him over the head with a club but its obvious this is a guy that piggy backed an entire career/life off of the skill of sm

    Couldn't be more excited about the new record.

    That Spiral Stairs is back is awesome. Hos post-pavement records with the Preston School of Industry are really underrated, especially in the shadow of Stephen Malkmus' more commercially successful solo work. I am really looking forward to this one.
