im not sure how excited i am about this. i do remember seeing them live and they were pretty tight so this may be worth listening to
wow i feel like such a douche for making fun of this song nonstop
Hush Yael is a tragic story of the Haran family from Nahariya, Israel. On April 22, 1979, this family was murdered in a terrorist attack led by Samir Kuntar, a former member of the Palestine Liberation Front. The only survivor of this attack was the mother, Smadar. While her husband and one of her daughters were being kidnapped and eventually murdered, Smadar hid with her two-year-old daughter Yael in a crawl space above a bedroom in their apartment. Yael was accidentally suffocated in an attempt to quiet her from crying out and revealing their hiding spot. So this song was born out of that tragedy. We decided that my singing would be the voice of the mother whispering to Yael in those last moments, and Micah's voice would be the narrator of the tragic tale. Needless to say, this song is emotional and we were glad to be able to bring this story to our fans.
Good track, not a huge Oh, Sleeper fan but they aren't a bad band by any means, and I'm pretty stoked on this album from what I've heard so far.
yeah, story behind song is pretty fucked up
Digging: Sufjan Stevens - Carrie and Lowell
Hush, yael is one of my favorite tracks of the year already and the albums already leaked//is good
acadmey you fuckin douchebag
i mean... dammit
Hush Yael is the best song on the album..
Hush Yael, Claws of a God, In the wake of pigs.
CD is delicious. Also leaked already.
i love you pink
Means to Believe is actually pretty awesome for a borderline preachy/choir boy "i need help with my faith" acoustic thingy
I've been listening to the album pretty much nonstop since it leaked. Pretty awesome stuff.
“The Marriage Of Steel And Skin”
This was the third song written for the album. Micah told me this song was about a father avenging his daughter's rape by decapitating the rapist, so we wanted a really psychotic/eerie sounding song. I wanted a "food for guitar nerds" song as well, so I wrote this entire song out around a tapping pattern of off-key weird notes. James showed me a beautifully eerie chord pattern he'd came up with and it fit perfectly as the chorus. This was the only song on the record that we prepro'd Micah's vocals on. Due to that fact, I think some of the best vocal takes were on this song. At the last minute before recording this song, Zac came in and re-wrote a few drum parts on the big breakdown, and really made this song what it needed to be.
CUT, CUT, TILL THE HEAD COMES OFF, TILL THE HEAD COMES OFF
RAAAAH CUT, CUT, UNTIL THE HEAD COMES OFF!!!!!!
Love you more Tappymctaptap
album is not quite as good as when i am god i don't think but it's pretty good
You like it and you know it
Hush Yael was better.
yes i do like it
hence pretty good
a very pleasant surprise
This is a great song, the whole album is solid. TDWP and ABR can take note.
Album slays, way better than the ABR and TDWP releases this year. Quite the step up from Son of the Morning so that's great to see.
Digging: D'Angelo - Black Messiah
Every song on Son of the morning was dwarfed by When I am God...Except world without a sun. That song is a mix between Beastmode, GodMode and Bedazzling.
Hush, Yael was amazing, and this song ain't bad either. Going to pre-order now.
@pinkblackberry World without a sun is the only song i have on my ipod from that album as well aha. Great album.
The finisher slays. and yeah this album is ridic
I can't believe we actually have spammers on here.
Also, song slays.
Gay band name
Been leaked for near two weeks now hasn't it?
Good album though!
Their old shit was just okay... This new album is actually really good
I think I need to listen to the album again judging by all the praise you guys are giving it. I listened once and thought it was pretty good, but it didn't immediately stick.
It's a grower, Tom. I wasn't all that impressed on my first listen but now I'm pretty much addicted to it.
First 5 songs are beast. I really just can't seem to get into the second half of the album.
Song is gewd
Hush Yael, Dealers of Flame, Children Of Fire, And Endseekers are the best songs on the album fo sho.
Endseekers, Shed Your Soul, The Marriage of Steel and Skin, Hush Yael- best songs. Everything after the first few kind of drags. It's not that they're bad, not by any means. They just don't stand out like the first half of the album.
world without a sun is still probably their best song
Listened to the stream, amazing album!
