The moment the drums kick in during I Told You Everything is stellar.

Warpaint is a big disappointment for me, looking back. I think that band had a lot of potential from a crazy talented rhythm section, but they just don't write many interesting songs.

Keep It Healthy is better than New Song. And the first track on Heads Up, Whiteout is also great so I’d have to strike that one down immediately.

16 Lovers Lane is a good album.

I'm going to chime in with that one album My Bloody Valentine had around the start of the nineties, the one with that one track that was on all the music video shows. I think it's the closing track. It's about 10 times more interesting to me than the rest of the album combined.

What an unexpected (somewhat), excellent return to form.
Brilliant.

With Lambchop, Bruce Hornsby and Guided by Voices it’s been a great year for old farts so far.
Makes me even more excited for the Pixies album release this year.


I know, it’s insane that Robert Pollard is pulling this off. Warp and Woof is such a great album.

Keep It Healthy isn't on Heads Up, so.

Too much of Heads Up is aimless and meandering. Whiteout is OK but it has some of those negative qualities; it's no banger like New Song, which is tight and infectious. The "you got the moves" bit from 1:40 is one of the best passages in a Warpaint song, catchy and sexy as all hell (as so much of their best stuff is).

My first mention was your suggestion that New Song might be their best, period.

Regardless, I think it's odd that someone with your less-mainstream musical taste would chastise the band for not making shorter and catchier tracks. It's clear from listening to their body of work that mood and texture are very important to them, and when you see them performing live and going on some long jam, you see the power of their unity as musicians is their strength over any kind of compositional qualities,

I only said "possibly" best. I mean, sure, Keep It Healthy is up there. Though my top five would probably be New Song, Beetles, and three from The Fool (I'd have a hard time choosing which three).

So, the mood and texture is important to me, absolutely. It's just that I think on the first album and EP that mood and texture formed memorable songs, while their two subsequent albums have failed to scale the same heights. It's a fine line between texture and aimless noodling or just being boring. Heads Up in particular gets really dull; I struggle to listen to it in full.

Their live jamming is ace, agreed.

It pains me greatly to say it, as I am madly in love with Jenny.

If you could tell him, when he has time of course, to chime in, I'd be grateful, as it's fucking driving me insane.

On the subject of songs sounding like other songs, I am listening to Cuz I Love You, and the title track is literally just Oh Darling. (With a guitar break that sounds exactly like the one in She Looks Like Fun from the Arctic Monkeys album last year.) I had to go and listen to Oh Darling.

I actually can't think of a specific song Seventeen sounds like. It reminds me of the Jezabels mixed with some 80s heartland rock.

G-Em-C-D is one of the most common chord progressions in the world. Mixed with really bombastic production, it's bound to make people tear up and countless artists have used that formula.

One song that sounds a lot like Seventeen, with those chords slightly rearranged, is Rebellion (Lies). It has the same emotive gut punch.

Ok, in completely random nonmusic talk, I had never heard of Uluru until today. What the hell, it's incredible. How difficult would it be to visit on a trip to Australia?

Classic American

It’s easy to visit but it will cost a bit.

You also can’t (and shouldn’t anyway) climb it.
