More and more bands seem to be going this route. I pledged for the last Flotsam album. Will do the same for these guys.
I've tried to like these guys (and gal)
Omg can't wait!
Good to hear that these guys are making an album again. I do hope that this upcoming effort will be better than their last one, which was quite a drop from their Pins & Needles album.
liked walking with strangers, hope this turns out good
Digging: Soft Machine - Seven
I can't wait! I love all of their albums. The last one was also amazing IMHO, just wish that it was longer.
I am amped.
Pins And Needles was great, the newest one was one of the biggest letdowns for me ever. Here's hoping its a return to form.
YES YES YES YES!!!
Pins and Needles was really good and I think that's why Hide and Seek was kind of a letdown. If it had come after Walking With Strangers, I don't think it would have been received as negatively.
Not sure, Willie my boy. I think Walking With Strangers is the album with their best songs, but Pins and Needles was more solid all around.
I think 'Violet' is their best, but Pins and Needles is definitely their most consistent.
Also, just pledged $10 for the digital. Really thinking about dropping $40 for the Vinyl too.
I wish I could pledge more, but I guess getting a singed album is pretty sweet as it is.
It took me some time to really warm up to Hide & Seek. After the hard rocking, high energy album that was Pins & Needles it definitely felt like a step back. But honestly all they did was tone down the guitar riffing for much more atmosphere and I've come to really appreciate that. Seeing those songs performed live also helped win me over; I'm so glad they had Alibis on their set-list last I saw them. My only real complaint about that album is that it's over far too quickly.
Digging: Threshold - Extinct Instinct
Their last album was really their only one that wasn't amazing. Hopefully this one gets them back on track.
I didn't even bother with the last one.
Kinda worried about the new album, cool how they funded it though.
We'll see what it sounds like.
I'm really diggin' what I've heard so far. This is their territory.
OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG SOOOOOO GOOOOOD
The album reminds me of Violet. This is a good thing.
Yeah the song I heard was great, such high hopes.
Destroyer is far better than Down. Although I think a little more could have been done with that crunchy guitar riff, it is a little monotonous. Still digging it though.
I'm not going to listen to anything from it until my copy arrives.
Both tracks are really great, Destroyer sounds like it could be on Violet.
I seriously need to buy their albums already.
I've listened to Pins And Needles and Walking With Strangers countless times.
Digging: Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles II
damn, completely overlooked this release... stoked
> Your Download of 'Superstition' is now available
Guess I may break the promise I made three posts ago.
Just saw that myself, can't listen until after work.
Oh man the new album kicks ass, dunno how they do it
Agreed, but it's short!
CD is quality. I like H&S more though. But I am of the few who liked H&S more than P&N so I'll quietly exit with this opinion :P
