Really liking Lodestar which they've released along with another track, 'Lost Without Leaders', on Aus iTunes. I'd be interested to hear thoughts on the latter since I can only find a 1.30 minute sample on iTunes.

After thought; I am marginally surprised they didn't throw 'Wake Up' on the album, if only as a bonus track. I guess it might not fit in the overall dynamic of the album but it was a good track, nonetheless.

Yeah shame about no Wake Up but Lodestar is pretty damn swell. Looking forward to this.

There's an acoustic version of "I Am" on the Australian iTunes as well.

Solid track, but the vocals feel a bit directionless. It's a similar issue I had with some of the
material on the debut.

The Veil and Kachina seem to be like the "experimental" songs on the album.

Lost Without Leaders is the only song that you can preview. You can also buy the full version but I'm waiting for the album.

Does anyone ever use irony correctly?

Cygnatti
July 5th 2013
22288 Comments


well let's see:

-situation irony: when something happens that contrasts what is supposed to or expected to happen.

-verbal irony: the most common usage in modern era and is sometimes thought to be the only form of
irony: when someone says something but means something totally different, significantly different
from an inside joke or symbolism

-and my favorite form of irony, dramatic irony: when a character knows something that others do not,
and or when the reader knows something that some or all of the characters do not.

fairly simple concepts but yeah, he did use irony incorrectly.

Hear that Cygnatti? No? That's the sound of the joke going SO INCREDIBLY above your head that it broke
past the exosphere.

Can't we just have friendly conversations about music without trying to piss each other off? xD Looking forward to the new album. It seems to me their old guitarist just used a bunch of delayed rifts from what I heard off their first album and their self-titled EP

Listening to the track a few more times, I kind of see similarities with 'Disconnect and Apply' and 'Big'. All three are high energy and were released as singles and both 'D'n'A' and 'Big' were far from the strongest on either album, so I'm hopeful this is merely a safe single meant for a wider audience.

Also, another track that seems to have vanished from their new release; Sleepers. I can find (low quality) videos of this track being performed but it doesn't appear to be on the track list for the album. Didn't make the cut, I guess...

that may help explain a lot

"'D'n'A' and 'Big' were far from the strongest on either album"

wow, that's surprising. Big is probably my favourite song by them but that's probably because I'm a sucker for huge choruses

Good song, but it really doesn't feel any different than their older stuff. I'm hoping to hear more evolution.

Apparently that song was renamed to Lost Without Leaders.
