I was thinking the name change threw him off.

I can't sleep with headphones on. I'm the type of sleeper who is never still, so I'm constantly rolling over. Makes the headphones thing not work out well.

I'm usually that way, but I'll make adjustments if I'm in the mood. Theres something about falling asleep when the music sounds like its coming from inside your head that is unlike anything else.

I concentrate too much on the music and thus can't really fall asleep to it. I have a hard time doing anything other than busy work with music on either, or I end up with an email like this:

Thank you for the quick turn around time on that lot yesterday, we'll be able to never trust a big butt and a smile from your hard work. Yours truly, Michael Bivins.

Just to bring this back to MPP for just a second, I couldn't truly appreciate Daily Routine until I heard it in this context. Its wash of keyboards is really soothing.

So, as promised, I listened to Teen Dream again, and I think I know why I don't love it in spite of its strong melodies and cohesion: the vocals. They're fine, but the vocal harmonies are nowhere near as creative and enveloping as those of Animal Collective and Grizzly Bear. The production also feels really flat, especially in regards to the drums. It doesn't glisten, nor does it pop. It's just there. Perhaps we'll see an improvement on that facet with their next release.

The songs though...they're starting to click with me. Norway and Lover Of Mine were my favorites on first listen and remain as such. No real clunkers either. This is one of those albums that doesn't display its greatness immediately, but gets better as the songs become more familiar. See: The xx's debut. Don't quite understand how it could get boring quickly...I hope listen #2 doesn't wind up being the best, anyway. I think this album will hold up well.

I put Teen Dream back on in the car this morning (sorry, mofo, that's where I do my serious listening even though it's not the right mood for this record) and I have to say, the minute Zebra came on I thought, "I love this, what's my problem?" I agree with LeMel about the vocals. As I said before, they sound somewhat affected to me, but not overwhelmingly so, not enough to be a deal breaker. I think right now I just like the first half of the record better than the second and then I start to lose interest. I'm not sure why. Maybe next time I'll start it at the middle and listen to the second half first and see what happens.

About MPP, I just love the whole damn thing beginning to end. It still sounds fresh to me after a bazillion listens.

that's how i have to fall asleep every night. the best is when i forget that my ipod is on "repeat all" mode and i wake up at 4am with music still playing.
