Loved that chaotic side of DH! I sometimes wonder if it could ever happen again.

I’ll DM you later! There’s no rush too, enjoy Le Guess Who!


#362

Thanks FL. I think I’m going to learn that tonight, feels like I have to now.


#363

I mean I think it’s pretty obvious, why even talk about it?


#364

New single ‘Element’ up now on streaming services


#365

BLAAAAAAAGH


#366

AHEM

I will listen to this when I’m finished work at four.


#367

Not bowled over by this


#368

Absolutely love that


#369

Sounds like something Alex Turner would put out.


#370

Pretty dull. Normally a big fan.


#371

Album is in the wild


#372

This band has fallen off so badly to my ears, idk.


#373

You can’t have heard the new album properly surely?


#374

Haven’t heard it yet but at this point i’m not even sure i want to listen to it when i could be listening to 100 other things. It’s frustrating cos i think Bradford/the band just abandoned a lot of the things that made them unique.
Just my opinion though. Not expecting it to go down well in a thread dedicated to them.


#375

Kinda feel like they’re a different band since Monomania. Still a very solid rock band, but mostly lacking the genius of the records and EPs that preceded that album. Still like them, looking forward to the album, still think the last couple of albums are better than most bands will ever come up with… but generally I feel a little bit the same


#376

I agree with you both FWIW. Generally they are quite as magical as they used to be.
Let’s hope this record is a return to form.


#377

not really been into anything since halcyon digest (8 years ago!) but I’m glad Bradford continues to do what he likes. Can’t ever imagine him really trying to appease fans or try to recapture something they used to do and that’s how it should be


#378

I remember that I HATED Monomania when it came out. Now I think it stands up on its own against any of the other albums.

Fading Frontier is slight in places but there are some brilliant songs on that. I really wish ‘Carrion’ was longer, one of my absolute favourite DH songs.

No worried about the new album at all. The singles from the last few haven’t represented the albums well so I know there’s going to be gold on it.


#379

Might revisit Monomania so.


#380

not quite (I meant)
Monomania and Fading Frontier do have some gems on them just not the complete package like Halycon Digest etc. (but then what else is?)
