I start with sleep on this album constantly.
Its probably the only track that seems as much
of a narrative as the dead flag blues

Edit: to me

That's an interesting idea Ty, but for me I gotta listen to this
album in the original order every time. That transistion from the end
of Static into the beginning of Sleep is so perfect.

I agree but wow man that dude talking about almighty god and the light of god etc is so fucking antichrist to me. It almost defeats the purpose of the anarchism sinces its so actively anti church.

Basically I'm confused about the whole "are gybe antichristian or antigovernment?"

I think they're anti commercialized nonsense but the vibes from that dudes reading come off as WAY more diablo fan fiction than religious discussion.

As much as I hate to say it, from interviews I've watched Efrim seems like a high school kid who just read up on Marx and Lenin. He seems so anti-everything it's almost funny

Oh I don't think they're anti-religion, or that they used that sound clip for anti-religious purposes. With that said, I don't think they're religious either, and their purpose for using said clip was simply to give listeners some food for thought, as with all their other sound clips.

I feel like alleluliah don't bend ascend accents their middle eastern take on Faith.

Maybe its.more faith in a god or force they'll never.admit influences his writing

Like I worship dubby basslines now bc they make sense thru american hip hop but I wouldn't say I believe in jay z or yeezus at all for as much as that means anything in this thread

Great documentary, Godspeed stuff starts around 56 minutes. Everytime Efrim speaks I grimace a little bit. Absolutely love Godspeed but I think Efrim can be a turd

Its kind of like effrim will just talk until people laugh at how high he is

Then its like wait you srsly don't like arcade fire because their ninja team of lawyers is bigger than yours?

Christ alive how many musicians are in godspeed now? I thought I counted 8 or 9 at pitchfork fest last year

Same tyran, to me it seems like the people saying hes joking are people who like both Arcade Fire and godspeed and trying to justify to themselves that hes lying so they dont have to feel butthurt at him. I still agree with his views on AF tho.

I agree he can get reeeaaally pretentious sometimes, I mean, what's with that Arcade Fire clip? He's saying that fun/happy
music is manipulative? Lighten up asshole.
