    Oddly enough, tickets aren't even on sale. Unless, fuck, they already went on sale and sold out. Fuck.

    EDIT: NOPE, GOOD, FOUND AND BOUGHT. *wipes brow*

    First time I saw them was at a KEXP event and the crowd/atmosphere was lame and now the next time they're playing the Capitol Hill Block Party which is notoriously the worst and the lineup is only alright this year anyway. :(

    Everything about "Drugs with Friends" is killing me right now. Such a stellar tune, and this line made me laugh out loud today:

    "Last Friday I took acid and mushrooms

    I did not transcend
    I felt like a walking piece of shit

    In a stupid looking jacket"

    I'll probably still be listening to this a couple of years from now.

    I was just listening to Killer Whales and 1937. Been a couple weeks since I've listened in full, so I've got to do that soon. I love these songs.

    The only two I don't absolutely love are the last two.

    I wish I could convince friends to listen to this.

    I love everything about this record.

    Seeing them live next month too, but I only know Teens of Denial at this point. What else is essential listening that I should get familiar with before the show?

    generally they're playing mostly teens of denial tracks but a varying string of deep tracks. i've really only listened to the two teens of records (teens of style is a bunch of rerecordings of old stuff but he doesn't necessarily just pull from those live), i know people love twin fantasy and how to leave home as well.

    Sign Yannick Ngakoue Prestigious

    This album is great. Reminds me of the Weakerthans, Built To Spill, and The Long Winters each at different points. But with a guy who sounds similar to the Strokes' singer on the mic.

    Man, "Drugs with Friends" sounds so, so much like Pavement.

    give it some time. people liked it a lot first listen but i think this record has come into its own with a lot of people with repeated listens and some time

    I wish I could make out the spoken part in "Not What I Needed." I know part of it is an explanation of the name of the band, but I can't get the rest.

    The middle of the record picks up, definitely. I'll listen again

    Even after my positive first listen, I never would've guessed I'd come to love it as much as I now do. I think it's the best record of its kind that I've heard in years.

    i had a biased first listen because of the personal connection, but it's grown on me so much more since then. has only gotten better and better for me. can't wait to see them another two times this summer

    these people made up the old car seat headrest band when he lived here, actually played a bunch of naked days stuff when he played the station show (which i didn't realize at the time, haha. he only sang about half of his stuff and i have no clue what songs they were, weird performance). they also opened for him at the DC show. was real nice when everyone came out on stage to play a song with them
