Rolling Brand New Thread


#221

Definitely get the R.E.M. thing, there’s a real southern gothic feel about this record. And yeah definitely a lot of Nirvana too.


#222

No Control is if Rivers Cuomo got a bit sad and did a Nirvana cover.


#223

Exactly this!

I also wondered if the seven years was also why they tried to release it last autumn.


#224

Also the vocals on Waste remind me a LOT of Jermaine Clement


#225

So this isn’t the first time this artwork has been used…


#226

Yeah I’d seen about that. It’s an artist’s piece. They added something to the license plate though? Or this band removed it/faded it with it’s filter they put on it.


#227

Think the other version just blurs the original. Tbh the logo/name is shite so prefer brand new’s


#228

I prefer mine tbh


#229

I can’t look at that picture without really worrying about the girl in red and if she was hurt.

Also the girl in blue has a fantastically cinematic jumping/landing pose.


#230

Took me ages to spot that :joy:


#231

Had it on repeat all day and really starting to love it, feels increasingly like Could Never Be Heaven is going to end up being the first album track I skip every time since YFW :disappointed:


#232

I reckon they all watched True Detective before recording this.

I like it though


#233

That’s fucking nailed it, exactly the vibe I was trying to describe this morning :smiley:


#234

I’m with you in that i also really dont get on with the country aesthetic but this doesn’t feel too country atm

I agree with the modest mouse and nirvana comparisons as well. Feels more Daisy than any other albums overall though


#235

Yeah, it’s feeling less and less cowboy hats to me the more I listen, thank fuck…


#236

What’s your favourite song so far?

I’m only on my 2nd listen but same logic/teeth and batter up are the standouts so far


#237

Same Logic/Teeth, 137 and Batter Up


#238

Really enjoying this. Though I eventually got to the point where I really like Daisy, it took a while. These tracks have a bit more of the density that make Devil and God great.

That said, I think a couple of them could have been left off the album. None of them are bad, but it does feel a tad repetitive around the middle, and lopping off one or two tracks would keep it all a bit more interesting I think. In The Water (which is 7 minutes long as well) is probably one I would have left off for another release.

As I listen to it more that could easily change though. The production, especially on that first track, is really lovely.

If this is the last album, then for me it’s a really decent one to go out on even if it doesn’t hit the heights of some of the previous releases.

This needs to hurry up and get on Spotify

(Although I never actually listened to Daisy, lol)


#240

Not gonna be much of a segue into this for you in that case, just listen to it you defiant loon.
