Listening to "Sacrilege" for the second time this morning. Yes.

I love the guitar that comes in in the chorus. First appears right around the 1:00 minute mark. Sounds like The Stone Roses. Yes.

This is the new track they played when I saw them in January. I really, really liked it. It's very quiet, moody and a bit unnerving. At least it was live.

Heard 'Sacrilege' for the first time just now. It's ok. Not bad. But as far as lead singles go, I liked 'Zero' way, way more. The ending with the choir is pretty cool though.

I read that interview/article, I think someone here posted, from Pitchfork where she says that this album is more back-to-basics/lo-fi than their past couple. If I remember correctly, she said she was in the mood to go all the way back to their beginning style of the first EP (with 'Art Star' on it), but that when you're in a band, you don't always get to do what you would like to do.

Excited for this album; I love this band!

My friend just texted me, telling me this has leaked. I'm waiting for a link now.


[EDIT: Ok, since I rarely download leaks, I'm not sure the Interference policy on posting links to them, but my friend just emailed me the link. If anyone is interested, just let me know.]

I really like this album. Not a lot of standouts for me yet, but great textures and sustained mood while mixing it up enough to keep you interested. Not as radical a departure as It's Blitz was, but very nicely crafted. Reminds me a bit of their moodier work, like Is Is.

They've announced a Tinley Park, IL show for June 29 on their website so I'm going to pick up tickets for that the second I can.

I agree, LM. I actually think it's their quietest work yet, which is funny given the album title and cover.

'These Paths' was the standout for me. And I really liked 'Slave'. 'Mosquito' was good too. The only one I didn't care for all that much was 'Area 52'.

I think this album is a good blend of the more electronic-based "It's Blitz!" with the more thoughtful, contemplative rock of "Show Your Bones" (which I still feel is greatly underrated).

I like it. Can't wait to see them again in a couple weeks!

On my first listen this hadn't made much of an impression until I got to Despair. Holy crap. THAT is a song. Actually reminded me of listening to Fever To Tell and hearing Maps for the first time.
