Choir of Young Believers have finally hit the States this week, the band reminds me a lot of Band of Horses but Choir might have the upper hand on the singing end. I’ve seen Jannis sing maybe 3 times when they stayed with me this winter and each time it might of been the most impressive human talent i’ve witnessed even beating out any Nathan’s hot dog eating contest. Jannis strips the songs down live to just him singing on guitar and his lady friend on cello and some pedals and they can literally do any of their songs that usually involve up to 9 people if I remember correctly.
New Radiohead came out Monday, download it here.
After listening to this 13+ minute Destroyer song I think they should change their name for 2 reasons: first one is because I want to use the name because Destroyer might be the best band name ever and the second is this song doesn’t destroy at all, its whimsical at moments almost and drones around like a Piano Magic song until we’re introduced to an almost disco kick and it becomes a whole different exotic animal.
Slow Hands told me Manuel Tur is still in his teens?? if that’s true than this kid will be owning the electronic/disco scene by the time all this mates finish college if he can hold down this diversity and sound. Can someone like Trus’me or Prince Language do a long edit of this song, i’d love to have that on vinyl.
