New album is okay, but not that great if you ask me. I kind of like the new vibe they have, sometimes sound like Foxygen a bit, but really after listening 2 or 3 times, I can only remember one track I really enjoyed, and it's the first one. Just like Fading Frontier. A bit disappointed, but I'll give it another try :)
They're a lot less interesting than they were like 10 years ago. Cryptograms and Microcastle/Weird Era are my favorites by far, sounding nothing like Foxygen, Much less poppy... Everyone's like "Why are they tagged Shoegaze?" must never have listened to Cryptograms.
Saw these guys live last night in Austin. After “Coronado”, Bradford introduced the rest of the band, then said he was “Britt Daniel, with a new hair color.” Then the real Britt Daniel got on stage and jammed with them during the next song. True story.
i really wished they were go on with the sound of halcyon digest, but in a way more futuristic and synthetized. or even fuzzy and dirty as monomania was, but "element" seems to be more a highly production wich i really like it, but the other single is not that good. maybe the new record is good as a whole album. "element" seems like an inverted broadcast song
so sorry, i was drunk when i wrote that. i really don't have listen to the album yet, but i think i'm gonna like it more than fading frontier. i don't know, i never know what to expect about them, even bradford cox (that i love as musician but sometimes i think he's jerk).
I think a lot of stuff they do has been pretty shoegazey. Weird Era Cont. stuff especially. There's definitely an audience crossover at least, they're one of the most popular bands in that big shoegaze/dream pop fb group
Да, я тоже так думал, и по сути это правда, но только наполовину, Cryptograms ахуенный и Halcyon Digest нормальный, некоторые треки прям очень крутые (Nothing Ever Happenned, Desire Lines), но проходного у них тоже много. Ну и с Animal Collective все-таки сходство есть на том же Cryptograms, но тут такое сходство неочевидное, как и впрочем со всеми похожими на AnCo группами - по сути, они все несильно похожи на AnCo, но это максимальное сходство, которое можно найти.
Этот рупор нуждался в твоем авторитетном мнении, безусловно)
АС в симиларе наверное потому, что обе группы, по сути, играют экспериментальный рок, обе имеют примерно одну аудиторию, почему бы им не быть в симиларе?
