The Weakerthans or The Mountain Goats you need to listen to these two gems released last week.
|1||Jim Bryson and The Weakerthans|
The Falcon Lake Incident
This album is like The Weakerthans instrumental with someone else on vocals. Oh wait, that's exactly what it is. The guitar tone isn't EXACTLY the same, but it's similar and it gives me that warm, fuzzy, everything-is-right-in-the-world feeling that every Weakerthans album does. Bryson does a fantastic job on vocals. He's unassuming yet expressive, and his delicate voice is perfect for some of the softer tracks on the album ("Constellation," "Anything and All"). Seriously if you like The Weakerthans you neeeeed this.
|2||The Extra Lens|
John Darnielle + Franklin Bruno. Essentially this sounds like another Mountain Goats record (which is good, because I haven't had my fix yet this year) with a few alterations from Bruno. Instrument arrangements are interesting as shit, and Bruno even tries to harmonize with Darnielle, which you and I both know is impossible but it somehow works. I haven't sunk my teeth into the lyrics yet, but it's Darnielle so you know they rule. Again, if you like Darnielle (looking at you Adam Thomas) you should get your hands on this.
|All is well my friends.|
|still have to check out the mountain goats, somehow i haven't|
|whoa. i need to hear these.|
|chan: yes you do|
Satty: yes you do
|But I like The Weakerthans because of his lyrics and vocals really.|
|Yeah you'd still like 1 - he sings some and the lyrics are still fantastic|
|Mountain Goats are better than The Weakerthans. But I'll probably have to listen to this at some point|
|I go back and forth and am content to say both are incredible. |
|Oooooh yeeeeaaaah |
btw I didn't know that your favorite song is Headstrong by Trapt
|Getting on these with the quickness|
|what mr bungy?|
