First song released is "Box of Bones"
This song is wayyyyy too much like a Silversun Pickups song for my liking. The chorus and the way he sings it just feel very close.
Album Details Revealed:
Our Bande Apart
Goodbye To The Day Of Ladies And Gentlemen
Box Of Bones
The Dying Blood
To The Sea
Time In Berlin
The following track "Again" features Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast trading vocals with Stephan Jenkins on a song that is reminiscent of a travelogue from days gone by.
here for it
I’ll give it a shot. That song with Bethany has me very intrigued.
Wanted the other cover.
Honestly not a fan of the art, title or length lol, but I have no doubt I'll enjoy it anyways
Somehow you just know "Silverlake Neophyte" will be a ripper
Take simple melody and beat it into the earth for 3 minutes
Not entirely sure what's going on with this one..... :/
The song changes so little that it feels like a constant drone, and honestly the production is prettttty terrible
He seems to like to feature popular female guest vocalists in name only and then gives them zero space with which to do anything at all
who is on this? also, what other instances? The Alexis Krauss feature was listed as a feature and she was a very integral part of the song
Best Coast. Can’t hear her at all
Integral? She had one line
yeah the opening line of the song. it’s pretty significant idk
doesn't matter what percent of a song someone has, they can still be integral. Screamer wouldn't be Screamer without the Sleigh Bells-like chant in it.
also it's four lines, twice, and she has another line in the middle too. So while it's not like she is a co-vocalist, it's not "one line"
It’s fairly obvious he can’t move out of the spotlight for ten seconds but in any case calling Again a duet is a massive stretch
Comments had me worried but I like the song. Sure it’s more or less one long chorus but it’s catchy and changes just enough with the guitar solo, the “hey you buster bluster” melody at the end which is great, etc.
oh man i really love this. power-pop as hell
I'm confused why you're calling Again a duet, she isn't even credited as a feature, she's just a harmony vocal, which is fine
Probably because the band called it a duet:
I dig it.
JLG reference I see.
diggin the new jam
“Box of Bones” is a really good song. Honestly could be on Blue.
“Again” is really good too. Honestly their best stuff in a while. They always have at least some cool stuff on each record but I really dig these.
