i have been extra ordinarily music hungry. it's like i've been hibernating for the most part, feeding on whatever people give me via downloads from their blog, yousendit emails from friends, or general recommendations (portishead - third IS awesome).
anyways it seems i have found a few great other bands while searching for current issaplaylist bands new muzaks. thanks to the april foolz joke with the new death cab album, me along with tons of other leechers were able to discover velveteen. the lead singer does sound very ben gibbard but their music is much more ambient.. and i like it. then i scoured the interwebz for info on the new hot chip album (not so new, it came out in like february) and i came across does it offend you, yeah? and i dig them, a lot. is their name ridiculous? maybe.. and their album title, 'you have no idea what you're getting into' but with that band name would you have expected anything less.. besides my band names on Rockband range from ideal disarray to force kute, and only so simpo because of the limit on characters), the album is quite good despite being nothing new, and they're getting comparisons to the likeness of daft punk. as for the new hot chip album, i've only gone through it once... and so far i prefer their last album.
does it offend you, yeah? ****/*****
