    Shoegaze/Dream Pop Thread

    Swirlpool are awesome and everyone who is interested in Slowdive, Nothing, anything like that, should get in on them!
  2. on the fence about this one... literally every riff and every section of this song has some quirky lead stuff going on. those details were cool on New Bermuda and Honeycomb because they stood out, now they crammed so many them that it rather feels gimmicky. Maybe it's also because of the rather boring lead guitar tone. Just listened to Honeycomb again right after that and its straightforwardness fits my tastes a lot better. But I'll have to admit, that folk-ish singing towards the end was a really nice touch, and I hope this won't be the only time we hear it on the record.

    Shoegaze/Dream Pop Thread

    that first Film School single "Crushing" blew me away. Stoked to hear the full record soon! Also, a few pages back I posted my band's new video single. Well, now the whole 4-track EP is out and one of Germany's most important music magazines, VISIONS, has picked it as their "demo of the month" in the current print issue. So, as apparently it isn't utter shit, I thought you folks might be interested in checking it out as well. Fun Fact: We were even featured in the same DKFM episode as Film School where I learned about their single! I still for the heck of me can't figure out how to embed the BC player here. I'll try and if it fails, I'll just leave the link here in hopes that someone clicks on it! Shun - Nothing Quite As Heavy on bandcamp

    [PO] Nothing - Dance On the Blacktop

    /100 is still available from the EU store. 30€ before shipping though (41€ppd). I'll hold off, it's too expensive to the point where it's only reasonable if you factor in buying another copy for flipping/reselling. And that's the point where I'm not willing to partake in a PO anymore.

    wow. Ridiculous amount of pressings. The EU ones sound boring though. /100 it is if the server doesn't collapse.

    Should be the end of the timer on their homepage: https://bandofnothing.com/ - in 3,5h! Will smash that F5 button half an hour prior to that anyway.

    [PO] Nothing - Dance On the Blacktop

    Alright buddy, maybe scrap that "generic" and put "typical" in there. Not that those bands named are the only ones that use pictures of awkward looking (yet most of the times aesthetic) femmes. In the end it doesn't make sense getting butthurt over a cover - I just don't see this one becoming as iconic as the flag on GoE or the rooftop on ToT.

    true. Up close one can see that the woman is wearing a mask, which still looks awful but at least gives it another meaning. Apart from that it looks just as generic as your typical SDF cover or one of those of the Thou drop.

    I find the production on Zero Day to be somewhat awkward. It leans rather towards the grittiness of GoE instead of the high production values of ToT. The most quirky thing are probably the vocals, I guess those little "disharmonic" doublings all the time might get very annoying if they do it like this for the whole album. Then again, I trust these guys to absolutely know what they're doing. Will try to get in on that /100 even though it will be a bloodbath, that's for sure.
  10. damn. I think I might finally have to put in an order. No apparel available yet in the new store though and (supposedly) the PO for the new Nothing record around the corner tomorrow...
  11. Maybe that's why they're milking these Death reissues so hard. Seriously, all that stuff was already on the box set bonus discs for those who wanted it.

    PO: Soft Kill - Savior (May 11, 2018)

    haha, sorry for that, it was rather late at night. I suppose you got my point though :-) didn't mean to hate on the band or anything. It's just interesting to look how a song is structured that upon first hearing you thought was really fleshed out, just to find it doesn't always take a boat load of ideas to make for a good song.

    PO: Soft Kill - Savior (May 11, 2018)

    actually, Dancing on Glass for example is pretty damn simple structure-wise. There's only like two or three parts that get repeated throughout the whole song. Still, all the layers really come together very nicely which makes for an excellent atmosphere. And I mean, being efficient doesn't mean that it's bad song writing, it's actually one of my favorite songs on the record so far.

    po: warm thoughts “I went swimming alone”

    been waiting on new tunes from these guys. That 7" single they put out on Asian Man before going on hiatus was too good not to receive a follow-up.
  15. saw that teaser earlier on FB. That snippet sounds absolutely sublime. Exactly what I expected from them. Very eager to hear how they have incorporated it with the rest of the song/album.
