Bronze Radio Return will be in town and tickets are $10. Worth pulling the trigger on that one? Hell parking will likely end up costing more than that because mass transit here cuts out at 11.

I think so -- I haven't seen them live, but the live versions of their tracks I've heard aren't bad at all. If you like them, you'll enjoy it.

And yeah, these are the same guys who did the "Somebody That I Used to Know" on one guitar video that became huge right before the song itself became huge.

Pretty cool and creative. I'd love to hear the actual recording though, because I seriously doubt that's the audio recorded from that actual session.

Apparently a new Cults album is coming out in September? I'm seriously starting to think all my favorite artists of the last four years are all releasing new albums this years.

First song from the new album, I Can Hardly Make You Mine, definitely feels like a progression from the stuff on their first album:

I only discovered The Radio Dept. earlier this summer -- yeah, I'm way late, I know -- and their first and third albums have been on repeat almost non-stop. (Pet Grief isn't bad but almost none of the songs stick like nearly all of them do from Lesser Matters and Clinging To A Scheme.) I also almost always find it interesting how many bands who were at one point guitar-based turn into a synthpop outfit, and these guys pull it off very well even if their second album sort of shows them readjusting a little. They need to release a new album already!

For anyone else who might not be aware, have some songs...

From Lesser Matters (2003):
"Where Damage Isn't Already Done"
"Keen On Boys"
"1995"
"Strange Things Will Happen"
"Lost And Found"

Someone else can swoop in and properly rep Pet Grief if they want, I don't know it as well.

From Clinging To A Scheme (2010):
"Heaven's On Fire"
"Never Follow Suit"
"The Video Dept."
"Memory Loss"
"You Stopped Making Sense"

I really like Clinging To A Scheme and "Heaven's On Fire," even though that spoken word sample about "youth culture" at the beginning is pretty loving .

But yeah, good Scandinavian synthpop — not a whole lot of depth to it, but an enjoyable listen.

Seconding the Typhoon recommendation. I got my record in today (which is a gorgeous splattered LP) and have been listening to the stream for a while. I think of them as the spiritual successors to Anathallo, if anyone remembers them, but any fan of indie folk and intricate orchestral arrangements should love the record. It never goes where you think it might go.

NPR is now streaming the new Okkervil River LP, The Silver Gymnasium.

http://www.npr.org/2013/08/25/21447...um?sc=fb&cc=fmp

It's kind of a concept album:

quote:

It's human nature to romanticize a specific time and place in the past — a moment when , or opportunities were laid out like a banquet. For 's Will Sheff, it's been impossible to let go of Meriden, N.H., circa 1986: That tiny town is where he spent his childhood (he turned 10 that summer) and where his parents taught at an area boarding school. Meriden is where Sheff's visions of youth and innocence reside, even as he's gone on to live in Austin and Brooklyn, and to tour the world.

Sheff sets Okkervil River's seventh album, The Silver Gymnasium, square in the heart of his own childhood; in the specific spot that produced his most sepia-toned memories. As such, the record captures not only his own autobiographical details, but also musical cues from the era. Like all Okkervil River records, The Silver Gymnasium showcases Sheff's uneasy warble, but this time it's set amid subtle synthesizers and the hallmarks of 's mid-'80s material. "Down Down the Deep River," for example, has an ambitious story to tell, but it's also wittily arranged, complete with an opening synth line that could just as well have been lifted from, say, ABC's "."

Even as it evokes the distinctive spangle of '80s pop and rock — the album's producer, John Agnello, has been active for more than three decades, having produced both 's most recent record and The Outfield's "" — The Silver Gymnasium sounds personal and specific, as it floats warmly in the soft spots that separate childhood from adolescence. Naturally, given the themes, the group tucks in plenty of era-specific cultural references (Atari cartridges, cassette tapes, et al), but Sheff and his collaborators aren't just waxing nostalgic; they also take care to surround the iconography with what function as free-standing Okkervil River songs.

The sturdiness of Sheff's songwriting ought to help The Silver Gymnasium resonate beyond the subset of listeners who themselves romanticize small-town life in the '80s; that and the fact that American pop culture has been romanticizing the '80s to some degree since about 1991. But even for those who romanticize other times and places — or eschew romanticization altogether — the album is too lovingly crafted to dismiss. Sheff is so invested in this world, he's commissioned an (by the similarly named and otherwise remarkable artist Will Shaff), as well as an era-appropriate , complete with 8-bit renderings of Okkervil River songs. It all adds up to a project in which nostalgia isn't the end result, but rather an engine that drives artistic ambition to a degree that's almost overwhelming.

So that's all kind of cool. As for the album, I'd only heard one track before this morning ("Stay Young") and was pretty 'meh' on it, as I was on their last album, I Am Very Far. This one, however, has exceeded my expectations quite a bit.

I know little of the band's background other than "Hold on Now, Youngster" which had its moments. But lead singer just seemed very punchable, like a dbag pretending to be twee cause he read it was a way to score.
