    PO NOW: Interpol - Marauder

    First half is solid, second half is uninspired. Lacks of depth. I agree that production / mastering made listening a bit painful. Would perhaps sound better and more enjoyable if they opted for more "natural" sound. But that kind of compression isn't new for the band and was my main complaint about "El Pintor". Other than that, got me a bit frustrated 'cause "The Rover" set things in a pretty promising way but we ended up getting a bland result. Not that surprising since the departure of Carlos D. That guy was the driving force behind their best records.
  2. I'd be a bummer to see them now without them playing Glint. What a hell of a song.
  3. Still listening to it on repeat. Currently in love with the last two minutes of Glint.
  4. After repeatedly listening to the stream since it came out I can safely say OCHL is my favorite Deafheaven album. It flows really, really well and brings so much to the table. Somehow shows that this writing approach was invitable for the band at that point and I'm glad the ideas came out so beautifully.
  5. Great. Just pressed play. Goes along with the fact that I've just preordered my 2xLP yesterday.
  6. Yeah, they could be but SL doesn't make it clear. I remember when they put out Sleep's Dopesmoker the holographic version was properly marketed as a special item.
  7. Not sure I'm jumping onto it yet. I was hoping for a black vinyl version with that fancy holo cover. Would SL be holding it for a later release?
  8. BTW, great song. Deafheaven at its best.
  9. Intro sounds A LOT like The Cure.

    Smashing Pumpkins

    New song sounded unnecessary. It takes more than just reuniting old members in a practice studio to jam around ideas. It still sounds like post-breakup SP music so if you dig Billy's efforts since then and recognize it as genuine Smashing Pumpkins, this single is for you. Don't think that J.Iha brought anything to the table or his presence helped to dig something that was buried in the past. From any expectations that I ever had left regarding SP, the one that I still have seems the most impossible at this point: getting the Machina reissue to finally lock the door.

    Single is great. Gives me hope that the new album will be as good as El Pintor which, IMOH, was the best we could get from them after S/T.
  12. "Reissues of sunn25 WHITE1 & sunn31 WHITE2 (the full length edits of the original mixes, remastered by Matt Colton /Alchemy Mastering) tip-on gatefold double LPs and high res digital downloads will see the light of day in early summer, watch these spaces for announcements." Just got this from their e-mail news subscription.
  13. Yeah, I'm hoping the black vinyl shows up at some point as an individual item. There's no way I'm bitting the bullet for this subscription.

    I still listen to albums #1 / #2 frequently, I'm kinda addicted to the sounds there. It seems album #2 is a bit underrated for the fact that it was surrounded by expectations with the sucess #1 got. But unfortunately, each time they went ahead and tried to experiment, it felt that it just wasn't their cup of tea, they weren't at their best (S/T and the Julian Plenty solo albums). They are pretty good at doing that dark, post punk songs and that does for me.
