I think you've (hopefully) arrived in London by now, Cori. I wish you to have THE BEST time!

It was awesome. Saw some London stuff, saw a few friends, was in the front row for both shows. Same setlist, but fuck it, who cares. It was awesome.



And, for fun, The Best Story You've Ever Heard.

Finally got around to hearing Cast of Thousands. Underrated, I feel. Very understated, almost Talk Talk-inspired music with a paucity of huge moments. The album is way too long (I accidentally listened to the 13-track version instead of the 11-track original) and starts to fade into the background a bit after the first few tracks, but it's a worthwhile listen for Ribcage alone.

I'm going to rank the albums now so that I can laugh at myself once I revisit them (I haven't listened to Elbow with any regularity in years):

The Seldom Seen Kid > Leaders of the Free World > Asleep in the Back > The Take Off and Landing of Everything = Cast of Thousands > Build a Rocket Boys!!11

I've come around to Cast of Thousands quite a bit since my earlier opinion of it, but it's still easily my least favorite.

Hey, Corialecia. New Elbow track.

 
She probably already knows.

meh, not much to it, I guess that makes it good material for a soundtrack rather than an album though...

Hot damn!

I saw an email about it this morning and then promptly forgot about it until I popped in here. Thanks!

I like it. Although since it's in waltz-time, it automatically increases the odds of my liking it by a good 40%.

I like it. Although since it's tangentially related to Simon Pegg, it automatically increases the odds of my liking it by a good 40%.

Ha. I mean, it's not the greatest song I've ever heard from them and it could be a good minute shorter, but I like it better than the majority of their b-sides, so .... yay.

Elbow will release "The Lost Worker Bee" EP next week, featuring four brand new songs, all based on their hometown of Manchester.

This new EP only seems to be available on UK download sites?

This EP still isn't on iTunes or Amazon.

Where is the outrage? Why does Elbow hate America?
