I'm 1:00 in and so far it's boring the shit out of me.
Ah, here it goes.
I like it. It's happy.
It's like Rusted Root and Arcade Fire had some dirty liberal hippy love child that played electric guitar in Alcest.

This has a good chance of making my Top 10 for the year. Really fun record.

It'll be on mine as well, Gaffer.

I may as well listen to it right now.

It's just outside of it right now, but I don't see it passing up LCD Soundsystem anytime soon .

Me either. Probably not even my top 50, if I went that far.


Fang Island, on the other hand, will be in my top 10. At the very least.

There is one thing about Fang Island I'm not sure if I like or not.

And that is the similarity to the riff in "Welcome Wagon" to that in Judas Priests' "Breakin' the Law"

Whenever I listen to this album or Sleigh Bells, it puts a smile on my face. Definitely two of the more "fun" listens this year.

Treats, at the risk of sounding curmudgeonly, is just noise and recycled beats. What's a novelty record if it's not even catchy? I couldn't hum the melody of one song on there. I realize that's hardly the be-all end-all of great music, but it surely matters when there's no lyrical weight present. Maybe I just don't get it, maybe it's beyond me.

Fang Island made a really fun record here though. Kind of thin, definitely short, but it's exhilarating, and sounds fresh every time I hear it. Will absolutely see them live when I have the opportunity, as their music seems best suited for that setting.

If it makes you feel better Cobbler, This Is Happening is currently my #2 for the year, above The Suburbs. But under Los Camp!
