Not to turn this into a JAMC thread, but what about Honey's Dead or Darklands? They're pretty damned great, IMO.

To each, his/her own. I really love quite a few Jesus vs. Mary Chain singles, but the only record of theirs which I haven't fallen asleep while spinning is Psychocandy. Such is life, I suppose.

This really just feels like a parody or tribute album to me, and rather faceless, like it was created in a lab. Maybe the EP feels more unique.
i've seen glasvegas live a few times and heard their record but they somehow don't seem as convincing as this band.

maybe glasvegas are trying too hard?

when i listen to this album i like the fact that they seem not to give a fuck about all their influences and wear them proudly upon their sleeve!

My local store finally got my copy in yesterday, listened to it for the first time tonight. Not surprisingly, loved every second of it. It's exactly what I thought it would be / wanted it to be. I have a feeling I'm going to be listening to this one a lot this year.


I think Stay Alive is my favorite track at this point. What songs would the rest of you say are your favs?

I've heard their song 'Come Saturday' on the radio a few times. I like it. The lyrics are practically indecipherable but something about the lead singer's voice reminds me of Morrissey. That could be way off, though. Maybe I just have a feeling that the singer is a melancholic Morrissey-esque character. The guitars are nice and noisy/jangly/retro sounding, too. That's all I know about this band. Thanks.

Considering your recent Glasvegas addiction, you may actually like them. You may not.

I like them quite a bit though, for whatever that's worth.

Speaking of Glasvegas, the EP I need to send you is still sitting on my desk.... Sorry for the laziness.

Since I love bands like Slowdive and Ride, I should probably listen to this at some point.

I don't get the Ride/Slowdive comparisons... they're not shoegaze at all, if anything their influences are clearly pre-shoegaze, although perhaps leaning in the direction. Maybe some of Ride's rockier tracks resemble theirs a bit, but TPOBPAH are quintessentially eighties-revival done very successfully (and worth listening to regardless of what you care about Ride and shit).
