Wow.

Pitchfork's review was a decent 6.9 - for them anyway.

I'm just a casual listener to Eluvium, and I can't say I care about the vocals either way. I don't particularly like or dislike Similes any more than his other albums. As is par for the course for Eluvium for me, it's pleasant enough stuff that I enjoy at the time but I'm not drawn back all too much.

Anyway, thoughts on the new Red Sparowes album, anybody? Sounding pretty sweet to me. The only thing missing are stupidly long song titles.

The funny part is that it actually has their longest album title ever, despite the uncharacteristically short song titles.

(After complaining for years about bands like U2 having unnecessarily long song titles, I never thought I'd see the day when I would complain about a band's song titles becoming too short ...!)

I think... post-rock is about epic-ness, and unnecessary long titles provide that, LOL

Best long post-rock song title?

LOL, that Mogwai song is awesome

but I like the old Red Sparowes titles like:

"And by Our Own Hand Did Every Last Bird Lie Silent in Their Puddles, the Air Barren of Song as the Clouds Drifted Away. For Killing Their Greatest Enemy, the Locusts Noisily Thanked Us and Turned Their Jaws Toward Our Crops, Swallowing Our Greed Whole."

the title alone makes me want to listen to it. I love post-rock song titles.

I have my own post-rock project sort of ... the band name is Your moat is a sea, and the album title is This day was the first cause of ruin. One song is called So love the destroyer blazed, and another is When the sky turned to dust, you were there. I think they're pretty good post-rock titles...

I'm late in listening to the new Red Sparowes album, probably because their past releases were kind of hit or miss with me, but wow. Definitely their best by far.

How did I not know that 65daysofstatic have a new album out next week?

It's streaming on their myspace page now. They've gone more electronic.
