Did anybody else pick up a copy of this one, today? Best Buy was selling the CD for like $8. Listened to it twice, this evening. Can't get enough. Sad that the band continues to release such stubbornly bare-bones packages, each time (I'd really like to know who does what, on these damn songs!), but the songs are all that really matters. And I say the songs are wonderful. Immaculate, studied, precise, slightly soulless, baroque-leaning power-pop. What the fuzz is not to love, right? Those things, if they're not your style, but they're mine.

That's five in a row that I really, really, really like and usually lovelovelove, from these cats. Getting into pretty elite company, as far as consistency and quality goes. Still, I would for some reason object to calling them one of my absolute faves of all time. At least at this point. Maybe that's the curiously emotionless element of the music shining through...? Not sure. All I know is that when I play these records, I am hopelessly in love with their music. Brilliant, I say!

Anybody else digging it?

Amazon did not deliver my copy today. They're really hit and miss with "delivery on the day or release" with indie labels. Looks like it'll show up tomorrow according the the tracking.

I'd like to once again mention that I"ll be seeing them for free this summer, with The Dodos supporting.

Haha, well I suppose it does depend on whether or not they are playing opposite of somebody else I want to see.

I hate how long they take to release the final schedule.

I can't believe this release date snuck up on me... I'll get it tomorrow.

I think that I'm just going to drive up to the Milwaukee show, rather than paying like $80 to see them play for 45 minutes, at Lollapalooza. Bastards!

It depends on the schedule, but that is a strong possibility. Lineup didn't really resonate with me. In the best-case scenario, it'll be a case of paying more to see shorter setls by the band or few bands I would care to see than I would wind up paying to see them play headlining shows a little before or a little after Lollapalooza, you know? Everybody comes through Chicago, so it's not really a big deal. If Jimmy Cliff were playing a full set on the same day, then I'd be in. But he's not headlining. Green Day or whoever the fuck is.

I believe they usually do so at the end of June/beginning of July.

This is not at all entirely accurate, Shouter, but you might be interested: which band plays which day - please check first post before posting
