yep! they are one hell of a band!

saw them with tanner in philly when they opened for Modest Mouse.

gives me hope (and some proof) that great new music still has a chance in this day and age and can atually still get out there and appreciated. heh. rarely, but is. lmao.

same goes for Love as Laughter and.. Modest Mouse themselves.
*Now if we could just form our own special PR company for them all.... they could take over the world* heh.

Had this conversation with Cujo a week or two back, but I'm not really sure what I think of these guys. Sometimes I think that I really like them, other times I think they're too inconsistent. Their big singles are fantastic, but there's a whole lot of filler on both albums. Too much filler for my tastes. As I'm kind of more of an "album" type of guy, sometimes this really annoys me. Sometimes when I'm in the right mood the albums go down easily, other times I'm much less forgiving on the weaker tracks.

Regardless, their good moments are fantastic. The Funeral is certainly one of the best songs of the last few years. For that alone, I still try to give them the benefit of the doubt. In their similar vein, I still greatly prefer Built to Spill and My Morning Jacket.

As a Jacket fanatic, This record helps bridge the gap until the post-Z zaps us next year.

I listened to the album at least three more times since posting yesterday, and it is really good. Really.

I like them yet I hardly ever listen to them. I pretty much agree with mofo. I like select songs but not entire records, and I prefer MMJ as well (though I don't really listen to them much either).

Are Modest Mouse good live? I have tickets to see them this weekend but my friend can't go (because he moved away, the bastard ) and now I'm losing interest in going. I need a pep talk or I'm going to try to sell my tickets.

I don't know if they are or not either, as I had to miss seeing them earlier this year. In terms of a pep talk though:

YOU CAN SEE JOHNNY MARR PLAY IN PERSON IF YOU GO SEE THEM!!!!!!!! SMITHS 4 EVAR!!!!




In Band of Horses related news, their cover of Grizzly Bear's 'Plans' is pretty good.

Seriously though, they have so many good songs, I'm sure it would be fun to see them live regardless of how well they perform. I hope I can see them some day. If I lived closer, I'd buy the second ticket from you!
