"Sploosh" is absolutely correct. I got one first 100 vinyls, with the white/blue haze SUP SPUT??!
^ same here, glad i didn't wait seeing as how fast they sold out.
Sounds more technically focused than emotional and for that reason, as usual, I prolly won't dig. However, I will give it a proper listen when it comes out as these snippets don't really do much but based on these I'm honestly not that excited.
This is exactly how I feel. This just sounds like a bunch of noodling. Sometimes I don't mind when its's done well but I think I'll be bored with this album after a spin or two.
atlas novus sounds really cool
Sounds a bit like the fast shredding and noodling of Carving merged with the more mature songwriting of The Collective. We'll see.
Excited for Atlas Novus and Narrow Salient.
"The Olive Tree" is the album's best song =]
I need a paycheck sooner so I can get this on vinyl along with the new Streetlight...
Why do people like this band so much? Just sounds like pointless technical wanking. Where's the musical bits of the music?
Digging: Russian Circles - Guidance
A lot of this album is very, very musical. Just keep your eyes peeled, JS
I'll definitely give it a try because they should be the perfect band for me, but I couldn't really get into their last one either
Atlas Novus sounds bitchin'.
Can't wait for this!
Digging: Frank Ocean - Blonde
Holy crap. This sounds great. I don't know why I ever doubted them. THANK YOU STS!
Hearing disjointed snippets of songs from an album will most certainly sound less musical than hearing entire songs or the record as a whole. Imagine hearing a 20 second clip of Black Hills from The Collective and then chastising it for sounding like chugging or noodling. That would just be ridiculous.
I guess STS's music just isn't the kind that should be presented in clips. Their magic sauce is based around developing soundscapes that take shape over the course of a song and taking listeners on an aural journey. That's why they embrace the "Adventure Metal" descriptors.
Itchy brings good points to the table!
It's what I do, mate!
Do you have a coworker titled Scratchy?
@Omaha nah, I work alone.
