I was wondering how they were going to handle that. Their last album was all in the latin style and sounds nothing like their old stuff. I have only listened to it a couple times but it was interesting enough to give another listen.
Also I can't see where DJ etc is playing a forth day. That would be exciting as it would suggest banana shack would be open Friday.
Switch, what is your opinion on the Devil Town cover? Do you like it beyond the fact that you say they should have added something soft and simple? Do you think he should have added anything? I personally feel like the whole feeling and point of that song are really lost because of it.
Incidentally, I was into a fewSaddle Creek bands like nine or ten years ago, but it never really carried very far. I saw Cursive and they were pretty good, but I guess I only really liked a handful of their songs. I really like the song Sierra. I met Kind of Like Spitting and they were pretty cool dudes. Not really about Bright Eyes per se, but I see all of those SC bands in a group together in my brain.
Did Kind of Like Spitting put stuff out on Saddle Creek? I should check that out.
Oh, I have no disdain for Bob Mould... it's just not my thing. I appreciate what he's done for music.
Fair enough. that was a total knee jerk reaction and kind of douchey when I reread it. I apologize, just have a really big soft spot for the guy. I also cannot exaggerate how much better his solo stuff live is than on record.

I really do not understand the disdain for Bob Mould here. Lead singer of Husker Du and Sugar. Two amazingly influential bands that stand up today. Then again people didn't care about Pavement last year. I guess it's all about what is new and shiny.

Personally I have had a bit better luck with the adds. Looking forward to Bob Mould, Wavves, Comedy Death Ray and J Mascis. Besides Mould they might not be highlights but they are acts I will check out if there are no huge conflicts.
Can understand how people are disappointed about the lack of big time adds.
