Rolling Brand New Thread


#261

I didn’t know that about the samples on Daisy, that’s really cool. I listened to Daisy twice at work today and feel I’ve been a bit unfair to it previously, it really is a fantastic record. Vices is such a raw, caustic opener. I never noticed how scrappy and ugly the guitars sound on it in places.

The samples on this sound like they’re from an exorcism or something. I keep thinking of Graf Orlock and their fake film samples for Crime Traveler that was released last year (in context, not in it sounds similar) and the band Megachurch, who actually use real samples of preachers and shit.

I’ve just put 451 on again. Think it might be my favourite track. What is it? I mean, that intro with the shaker. It sounds like some southern-rock foot-stomper.

Pitchfork prediction - 8.0

I’ve never listened to Brand New before, but thought I’d give The Devil and God a go - it’s really good!


#263

Favourite tracks?


#264

I’d be surprised it’ll it breaks 8, more like 7.3


#265

IT. IS. AMAZING. Only been through it three times but I reckon it has the potential to become my second fave after TD&G (obvs) in the long run


#266

Wish I was you right now! You’ve got 4 absolute belters of albums to get in amongst


#267

Still in a bit of shock we’ve got a new album. Lovely lovely sneaky bastards!


#268

So new QOTSA, Brand New, Converge… what’s next new Glassjaw… come on lads get yer finger oot


#269

Not getting the distaste for Could Never Be Heaven. Admittedly it ain’t a highlight but treated as a segue into Same Logic, it does a job. It’s nice


#270

Batter Up…I practically held my breath for the whole song waiting for a crescendo that never arrived. But considering the lyrics it was fucking perfect! I kinda feel like there’s a fair bit of humour tucked in there. And 137…holy shit! I wasn’t expecting much from that one for some reason.


#271

Definitely an album that is/will and desevers to be picked apart. Arrrrrgh fucking love BN


#272

Where is I am a nightmare tho


#273

At the touch of a button on Spotify/Deezer etc. You baiting? I’m biting

#275

451 is near perfect now. This song has so weirdly connected itself to me, an absolute standout.


#276

Doesn’t need it chief, plus - it so wouldn’t fit the tone, even though it’s a banger.


#277

Think/hope he’s taking the piss. As you say, would not fit


#278

I’ve had 3/4 listens now but they’ve all been while travelling or at work so I haven’t given it my full attention yet. So it’s revealing itself but I really need to give it a proper focused listen.


#279

Does anyone know who sings the ‘At the bottom of the ocean fish won’t judge you by your faults’ line in ‘Same Logic/Teeth’?


#280

This is the bit I thought sounded like Muppet Treasure Island
