I hope I'm right in thinking everyone can receive PM's now. If you didn't get it, let me know, Laz.

Pitchfork: Travis Morrison Retires From Music

Travis Morrison-- former Dismemberment Plan frontman and sometime solo artist-- is apparently no longer making music. So says the front page of his website, which reads: "RETIRED! No shows, no records, no band. Just relaxing in Brooklyn. Befriend me on facebook. I'm so nice!"

Whether this is a Ryan Adams-style retirement, a ploy to up his friend count, or something more permanent, is not yet clear.

They're doing another brief "reunion tour" for a re-release of Emergency and I. Their comments make it seem as if more could come from it if they like being back together.

On January 11, Barsuk will reissue the band's 1999 masterpiece Emergency & I as a double LP, complete with an oral history of the record by The Onion's Josh Modell. But the band seems to be leaving the door open for more awesomeness. Bassist Eric Axelson tells the Post, "We're not planning a new record. But we're doing these shows and taking it day to day after that."

The Dismemberment Plan:

01-21 Washington, DC - Black Cat
01-22 Washington, DC - 9:30 Club
01-27 Philadelphia, PA - Starlight Ballroom
01-28 Boston, MA - Paradise
01-29 New York, NY - Webster Hall


Pitchfork: The Dismemberment Plan Reunite


Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease make another album, guys.

Well, that's nice.

Chicago is a fairly major American city too...

Pitchfork: The Dismemberment Plan to Reunite on "Fallon"

Somehow, the bookers at "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" have managed to secure an appearance from an impressive array of big indie bands that have reunited recently. And early next year, they'll get another one. Skittery D.C. post-punk legends the Dismemberment Plan, triumphantly getting back together for a few shows and an Emergency & I reissue in January, will play the show on Thursday, January 20. That's the night before the first of the band's reunion shows, which means that Fallon, ?uestlove, and the studio audience will get to see the reunited D-Plan before anyone else does. What will they play? "The Ice of Boston"? "The City"? "Time Bomb"? Too many possibilities!

The band has also added exactly one more show to their reunion tour; they hit Seattle's Showbox SoDo on March 12. According to the band's website, that's the last of the U.S. reunion shows. All dates below.

The Dismemberment Plan:

01-21 Washington, DC - The Black Cat
01-22 Washington, DC - 9:30 Club
01-23 Washington, DC - 9:30 Club
01-27 Philadelphia, PA - The Starlight Ballroom
01-28 Boston, MA - Paradise
01-29 New York, NY - Webster Hall
01-30 New York, NY - Webster Hall
02-19 Chicago, IL - Metro
02-20 Chicago, IL - Metro
03-12 Seattle, WA - Showbox SoDo

Sigh.

Why can't Jimmy Fallon just go away? His musical booking staff may have good taste, but that still doesn't make him (a) funny or (b) not a tool.

Also, I'll just mention again that The Root$ are fucking whores.

When I was ten
I had this book of modern fighter planes
with F15s and MiGs
That and a bowl of Breyer’s Mint Chip was life at its apex
The chewing of pens
The Ocean City girls on the boardwalk singing oh oh oh yeah


I have no idea why I'm bumping this to post those lyrics since I'm listening to E&I right now, not Change, but it hardly matters since they have one major thing in common: they're both better than 95% of all other albums. I get very sad when either of them end.

Pretty sure I recall Laz posting this review in Random, but not everyone reads that thread, and it's worthwhile analysis for newbies:

Pitchfork: Album Reviews: The Dismemberment Plan: Emergency & I [Vinyl Reissue]

I want to procure the vinyl just for the iconic cover art, but, to be honest, I think the album better suited to the cold, digitized sound of CDs. A Change vinyl would be fucking awesome.

Fallon is a waste of skin, but I can't miss that. In the parlance of our Laz, it's worth it in this case to work through the shit to reach the diamonds.

If you missed it, here's a direct link to the song itself:

Pitchfork: Watch: The Dismemberment Plan on "Fallon"

They also have a web only clip of What Do You Want Me To Say, so check that out too.

Watched them last night and they were great. I know I've heard an album of theirs before, but I wasn't totally into it the first time. Ready to give it another go, how can you not like something with a lead singer just so fucking excited to be there. He completely won me over.

As for Fallon, dear God his show is shitty. Did anyone see the stupid "name that tune" game they were playing before hand?
