Two of the members of this band were wearing jean shorts at Lollapalooza last year. Two different pairs of jean shorts. On one stage. Unbelievable.

"I think we need more post-coital, and less post-rock. Feels like the build up takes forever, but you never touch my cock"

I'd ask you which two, but I prefer to fantasize about all three.

Gareth was wearing them in Austin too, Gaffer. This is a bit of quasi-"hipster" couture I don't quite understand.

 


So the guy on the left. These guys aren't "hipsters," but I'm just illustrating a point. Obviously they used to be jeans and were cut off just barely above the knee. This does make them jorts, but not quite jorts in the truest sense:





Verdict? Too close to the real thing. Needs to stop.

This may very well end up being my favorite Los Camp album, very good first impression.

PS - Just say no to shorts on dudez.

The FORK! appears to be waiting for the UK release date (Monday), as there's no Friday review for it.

Its rating rests on the UK vinyl packaging being worth Gareth's hype.

Which makes me even more pissed I didn't import it after the massive cock block that was A&C's vinyl treatment.

And Gareth still hasn't answered my email about the damn situation.

Keep us updated, on that. I'm not sure of what's what.

Anyway, I like literally every single song on this album. I love the vast majority of them. But I do think that this is just too long. With a few tracks left, it feels to me like it starts to grind its gears (even though some of those later songs are among my favorites) and lose momentum. It could be a personal reaction to the sequencing, but I don't think so. I just think that the album could stand to be 5-8 minutes shorter, give or take. A non-album single or two would've save some killer tracks from b-side hell, too.

C'est la vie, though. I really like it. Reminds me a bit of how I oftentimes feel about Hail to the Thief, which on song-for-song terms is probably my favorite Radiohead album...but which I don't think works as well as many others as, you know, an album.

Remind me never to trust your Radiohead-related opinions ever again.

I think the album is a fairly perfect length. It's only 6 minutes longer than Hold On Now, Youngster, so I don't see how it's a radical departure anyway. If a couple of the tracks were cut, the album would be improved for it, but that's only because they're not anything special, and I would want them replaced by something else. The album has more weight to it and somewhat greater scope than their previous efforts, and I think a small bit more sprawl is fitting.

I don't think that this band is capable of a "radical departure," nor do I feel that that's a bad thing.

I totally agree. Especially the fill stuff and Plan A. This album could easily do without that stuff and be better for it.
