Played Skinny Love. It was a cool performance, he had 3 drummers. You could probably find it on Youtube or a blog somewhere I'm sure.

That was excellent.

I had no idea what they looked like live or anything, but I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've ever seen three drummers and only one guitar.

Very cool indeed.

Not only three drummers, but three with very good harmony vocals.

speaking of being taken off guard by a sad tune...i was walking with my headphones on during a beautiful bright sunny and still day.

i had just finished working another pointless and meaningless day

the song was 'release me' by swedish singer oh laura, i was sitting idly by

for some strange reason when the lines:

I am the rain that's coming down on you
That you shielded yourself from with a roof
I am the fire burning desperately but you're controlling me

RELEASE ME!


the way she sings "i am the fire burning desperately" hit a nerve - just the way she sings it, its not pitch perfect, she lets go! and it took me there

I finally bought this. I love Skinny Love. But the rest of it...well, it's good and all but I'm already kind of bored with it.

While I agree that Skinny Love is far and away the stand out, I really like these songs as well:

Flume
The Wolves
For Emma
RE: Stacks

You definitely have to be in the right mood for the album though.

I think I will enjoy having it on in the background. I'm usually more of an active than passive music listener, though, so I sense it may not be the kind of thing I reach for a lot but I do think it's quite good.

I only liked the album until a couple of days ago. Wednesday night I think I listened to it 6 or 7 times while I was in the library studying. It wasn't just great background music, it was just overall putting me in a good mood, which was helpful cause I was freaked the hell out about my exam. Anyways, I absolutely love it now. It's moved up to my second favorite of the year.

It's growing on me. But I find the vocals a little tiresome.
