Looks like the album hype is gently ramping up ahead of the tour. Nice to see Paz in there, hope they keep her involved with the promotional stuff and don't just sideline her

The stream from Les Vieilles Charrues is on Dime - has the same 4 newies but the sound quality is much nicer than the NOS one.

Confirmed by Paz on Instagram: this is from the Um Chagga Lagga video.

I just let these 6 seconds play over and over in a loop, they sync up pretty well. This line has been stuck in my head for days.



Same. I've been saying it a lot as I've previously mentioned. I prefer the other clip of the song, the longer one from Lisbon with the extended buildup. Eager to see what it sounds like in full.

^ don't know about ratings, but I definitely like UCL more than Bagboy or pretty much everything off of IC aside from What Goes Boom and Blue Eyed Hexe.

Which song?

We haven't seen many ratings on these boards, but here's what I would say:
- Um Chagga Lagga : 6/10 solid
- Classic Masher : 8/10 brilliant (probably better on the album)
- Baal's Back : 8/10 in-your-face (like Blur's Song 2?)
- Head Carrier : hard to say from the bits we've heard

for comparison purposes on my subjective ratings:
Tame : 11/10
Bagboy : 9/10
Another Toe : 2/10
Bam Thwok : 5/10

It's weird, I prefer both "Classic Masher" and "Silver Snail" as solo acoustic pieces than the band versions, and I don't think it is coincidental that those two tracks sounded (perhaps) the most like solo FB stuff in their acoustic debuts.

Not that I dislike either full band version, but to me, "Classic Masher" had a real drive to it that is somewhat obscured by the arrangement. "Silver Snail," too, seems a little tentative with the full band.

That "toot toots" line - kind of cringe at that one. Maybe it will grow on me.



My density has popped me to you.

Looks like a bit of a tripping hazard they got there...
Is BF rocking a 'stache?

@wilson, which (if any) of the other album tracks would you say seem most likely to transition well in a live show?
We have them playing these 4 new songs, so I'm curious what may come next if they add a few as they go.

How was the Brixton show overall? Did Head Carrier and Classic Masher translate well for you?



they all sounded really good, but masher did feel a bit flat even though i was so excited to be seeing it live after all these years. listened again this morning and figured out why - the chorus is very layered and i'm fairly certain i can hear keys deep within the mix. then the record ran into 'might as well be gone' and i realised keys live on that chorus too, though much more obviously.

despite being relatively raw, there sure is a lot of depth to this record. i'm on about 30 listens and i'm still discovering nuances that weren't noticeable to my ears prior.

re: toulouse track, looked around for a video but couldn't spot. can anyone point me in the right direction?
yarbles Posted - 07/11/2016 : 23:45:01
And then there's Super Lecker..... not sure if that was ever recorded.... But it looks like the band will have a good handful of b-sides/extras in case they want to release a surprise EP or something next year. :)

Anyone else notice the song titles being recorded? [Down In] Toulon, [Classic] Masher, [I Like To] Drive, Head Carrier and [Wasted] Talent are all visibly present.



Wonder if we'll ever hear Down In Toulon and I Like To Drive, recorded but not on Head Carrier's tracklist

The FACT you can't recognize being mocked is sad. So sad.

Here's a hint: we all know the band is different. Not the same. But things can change and still retain the same name. Sports teams! They change rosters every year (even within a season) and yet they don't change their name. My 2016 Red Sox are the Red Sox, just like my 2004 Red Sox. That's a FACT.

Lol, that solo did sound pretty wack. Thought he was repeating his part from UCL. I really can't wait to hear BF's studio vocals on that.

Jonesing it hear Head Carrier now.

Record vids everybody! New songs need to be heard and dissected here!

Are you from UK wilson? Brixton a wee bit too far to go for me, hoping for a Scotland date when they announce the next shows.


sdon Posted - 07/11/2016 : 07:45:06
Wilson, will there be a special announcement tonight?
