Didn’t know anything other than bittersweet symphony. Sounds like older Radiohead. Didn’t know Wilco - drugs don’t work is a cover. Really sounds like The Bends era Radiohead. Lucky man is a good chorus
Super echo-y Great lyrics “Sex! Hu-ahh!”
Guitar! “This a song off our new album. It just came out this week. It’s called Surrender“
Why is this on here? Alex jones thinks the chemtrails over the country club are turning the WASPs gay. I kinda like her whisper-singing thing in general, but this is maybe excessive.
5 songs - 44 min! I feel like I don’t get it. I like the songs but it’s like 60% swirly intros and outros.
Buzzy guitar, lots of moaning and groaning. Purposefully abrasive - sometimes in a fun punk rock way, sometimes not
Not my jam
I’m supposed to think “this fucking shreds!” But I was kinda bored
More metal-y than I expected
Very fun how weird it gets
It’s weird I’ve heard so many of these. Delightful little ditties about murder.
I should be in a dark incense-y room or something. Don’t remember much of this - it felt sorta bland
Can’t decide if I like the slow-fast talk-singing. Reminds me of toned-down velvet underground. Okkervil river vocals are a lot like this. Somebody get this poor guy a girlfriend.
Pretty cool that Take It Easy is the first song in their first album.
Bizarre and pretty fun at times.
Listened to this as intended - with like 20 liberty mutual commercials sprinkled in. Harmonica! Pretty rough vocals
Just realized that the lines “we got no class, we got no principles” is clever. Hah why is it west side story?
Sounds like a steamy film noir soundtrack or something. I don’t know shit about jazz but didn’t particularly enjoy this.
I want to go back and listen a couple more times. I like “There She Goes - My Beautiful World” a lot
Really good cover art. Really loved the first half and kinda lost interest
Use of "oh baby" in Booksmart is one of my fav needle drops. More cowbell! I like the swirly whirly "american dream". Not my favorite of theirs but still several songs I really like, mixed in with some pretty annoying ones.
Super dramatic and operatic.
Pretty outrageously good first 3 songs. Mega 5 stars for those first 3, fine for the rest.
Some real classic country. Not my thing but kind of pleasant. Should be playing on a jukebox while drinking $1 beers.
Two weeks is a jam. Breathy and weird and vibe-y. Sort of pleasantly fades into the background
Didn't realize Frank Black was the dude from the Pixies. I was thinking this sounded a ton like the Pixies...unfortunately it sounds like the more chaotic Pixies songs that aren't my favorite.
not really my thing, but pleasant enough. "produced by Owen Bradley, who produced Patsy Cline's best-known work." don't really know Patsy Cline but that was the comparison point I had on some of these.
total blindspot - had never even heard of her. sounds more recent than the 70s to me. intense.
