November is the month to be thankful, right? Last November mrs. tourist and I lost a baby boy halfway through the second trimester. As of today, mrs. tourist is 32 weeks along and everything looks fantastic. If the baby we lost had lived, this baby would never have existed. So I’m thankful for this baby and how he seems healthy. But I still haven’t stopped saying “if” instead of “when”... and I probably won’t until he’s born.

So glad everything's going well for your wife, tourist . I totally understand your concerns, though. But I'm sending good wishes and thoughts to both of you, and hope all continues to go well .

My wife miscarried before my son was born (though not as far along as your wife), so I know what you're dealing with. Very difficult, but in a short time you'll have a healthy son and it will be much easier to put the miscarriage completely in the past. (And then 13 years from now the little bastard will be driving you crazy, trust me ).



Best of luck to you and the Mrs. over the next 8 weeks, maybe you'll have a Christmas baby.

Who has heard Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile's Lotta Sea Lice? I've been spinning it a lot of the weekend, I dig it. Over Everything is a terrific collab, then I think the next few tracks wobble a bit, but from Continental Breakfast (which has my favourite Kurt Vile vibe) onwards I love it. And CB's cover of Peepin Tom is fantastic.

I like it. It's a nice laid-back album. The only song I love is Over Everything though. The rest ranges from pretty good to a bit boring. There's also some jarringly out of tune singing going on in certain tracks.

And how's the War on Drugs album shaping up for everyone? Finally listening now. Certainly impressive, if more of the same, but if that's what you were after then you'd be stoked.

I've bounced hard off that War On Drugs album. As in, we're done. It's unutterably bland. It's like more of the worst parts of Lost In The Dream, and somebody forgot to turn the tape recorder off.

And I actually think it's not remotely impressive. There is nothing here with the urgency or fascination of Under the Pressure or Red Eyes or even An Ocean In Between The Waves.

Maybe I'd roll with what he's doing here if he were a great singer or lyricist, but he is neither.

It hits the spot when that's the exact sound I'm looking for, it's top shelf background music, but I find it less appealing to listen to closely than their past couple of albums. Too much of a pretty good thing.

It's wonderfully consistent. Lost in the Dream has better highs, and few songs stick out individually, but I find it very enjoyable as a whole.

I can't get into the pre-Lost in the Dream stuff though.

You will likely not be surprised to hear that I love it.

The songs sounded great live, but the vocal blandness is too much for me on the album.

I think I can comfortably confirm that A Deeper Understanding does not really come close to matching Lost In The Dream for me.

Like one of you mentioned earlier, the peaks and highlights of Lost in the Dream aren't really matched here, but it is very consistent across the board. There are no songs that I dislike or regret.

There is nothing as exhilarating as Under the Pressure (which I have the absolute highest regard for - it is one of finest songs I've ever heard).

Clean Living, Nothing To Find and Up All Night are all really cool.

Pain is probably my favourite, beautifully assembled, Granduciel's delivery is stunning and is up with the best of their songs.

Yeah I was quite impressed by Clean Living (SUCH beautiful piano). Strangest Thing, Nothing to Find, Pain, probably my other favs.

I didn't have it in my end of year top 10, because it was released quite late and it wasn't really until this year that I really started listening to it, but Tribe's album is fucking incredible. Would be my AOTY right now.
