I think it's their best album yet.  I just picked it up today, and I'm on my 3rd listen as I post this.  Has anyone listened to it yet?

This album is getting super hyped. I've heard two tracks off it so far, and I'm not blown away. I love the album cover though.

Is it as good as the critics are saying?

It's their best album yet. They've matured so much. Can't pick a favourite though, probably something off the first 4. Love em all.

They moved away from the Ivy League themes from their first two albums, and they stepped it up from a technical standpoint.  The album is more varied too.

American indie pop rock.....not my cup of tea......Wink
If you want clever lyrics with good melodic pop rock in a variety of styles  buy some XTC...a far better band imho.

Hey Jude.
Have you tried out Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear? Those are US artists I'm very much into at the moment. 
If we're talking electronic though(which we aren't, but I digress...), then F*ck Buttons is the go-to act! Tarot Sports rank among my most treasured modern electronic albums.

Yes, I know them. I actually am living in a place right now where seeing foxes and bears aren't so uncommon (in the Smoky mountains). So listening to Burial and Kompakt is the way I get myself back to human society and civilization LOLLOL Listening to "White Winter Hymnal," "Colorado," "Campfire" might send me over the edge. LOL I might end up growing a beard, wearing love beads, gathering wood and doing yoga, bringing me one stop closer to learning the banjo, singing country songs and buying Grateful Dead t-shirts. LOL


The China part of you avi confuses me then........LOL

Anyways, sounds like the perfect place for electronic music indeed. I love having the natural world unfold before me, whilst listening to slow moving bip bipsBig smile
Oh and the last 'character' described in your post sounds uncannily like a description of me - bar the banjo.....

I think if I weren't already one step away from being immersed in that world, and could listen to that music in a safe and secure European urban environment, I might be able to appreciate it... LOL (Sorry, for the past decade I've been living in cities in Europe and China and only recently moved back to the US; I'm still in denial and haven't accepted it yet ConfusedLOL

LOL

Let me guess: you're an international freelance lumberjack?

Oooh, yes! I love most of what I've heard from Grizzly Bear so far. Heard some interesting stuff about Vampire Weekend on Swedish radio today. Worth checking out?

You know, I've never really checked these guys out, even from the hype. They seem like an ideal band for me, but I've just never had the motivation to give them a good listen. I saw Pitchfork's special with Steve Buscemi and the boys though. That was neat. Big smile

I love both bands. I tend to stick to Fleet Foxes a little more, but both are wonderful. F*ck Buttons are incredible as well. And hey man, if you want some new electronic, check out Four Tet and Mount Kimbie!

I have Four Tet's Rounds, which is brilliant. Definitely beginning to dig it more as the sun starts getting warmer.
Mount Kimbie is brand new to me, but I always look forward to new electronic music, so thanks a billion man! I'll wire you the money in pesos as per usual.
