I think that would be a fair argument for Pixies to have - they’re a working band and they do play new stuff.Pretty much. I can empathise to an extent in that it must be annoying that whatever new stuff you bring out people just want to hear what you did 25 years ago but there’s the option there to just not do it.
I like the latest covers album but, mostly, point taken.I think that would be a fair argument for Pixies to have - they’re a working band and they do play new stuff.
But I don’t think Dando can hide behind that, especially if he’s going to tour the Lemonheads name - if you don’t want to play the old stuff, record some new material. They’ve had one original album since their heyday and that was what, 15 years ago? His choice is pretty much play the old stuff or be the wedding band no one wants to hear - covers, but covers no one knows.
Me too - I was playing it earlier and it’s good; he always makes a good sound. I just hope he’s not somewhere playing the serious musician card, thinking “why don’t people want to hear my new stuff” when it’s not really his stuffI like the latest covers album but, mostly, point taken.
I must be the only person on here who actually likes the VW album, all 18 tracks of itMe and the family listened to Big Thief whilst on a road trip this weekend. I think it’s excellent. Love how folky and meek it can be before the overdriven and distorted elements come in to play.
Also listened to Vampire Weekend. As previously mentioned, overlong and lacks a bit of coherence in respect of sound - obviously the main thread throughout is the fact that it appears to be a ‘breakup’ record, but it feels like the point is laboured a touch.
Could have been a better album if a few tracks were kept back... enough to make two albums really, but I suppose you can’t release another breakup album straight after a breakup album.
Not my thing I'm afraid*

Is that the Northern Irish singer? Quite like what I've heard....Saw SOAK at hit the north and Grim Town is a cracking album. If a tad melancholy
