exactly blarg, I always think of them as a noisy rock band. Me and some friends put them on in 2002 in a tiny venue that held 100 people, barely 40 turned up and the YYY still fucking ripped it up. Few years later and they were headlining the big festivals.
although on a quieter, more melodic tip the 41 strings thing Nick Zinner done a few years is really great
Sounds awesome. Yeah Yeah yeah's were definitely suited for more intimate venues.
Interesting track, never heard that before. You can obviously hear Nick's trademark over that.
Trent's been hinting at new Nine Inch Nails for this year, but realistically I don't see stuff happening until 2014. FUCKING COCKTEASE. Meanwhile I'll get my fix from HTDA's Welcome Oblivion, I hope.
Then of course dat new QOTSA and Depeche Mode.
@ new NIN. I know that's been Trent's tentative plan for a while, but he's always stuck in side projects. Trust me, if a new NIN is officially announced, 'll have many sleepless nights of anticipation.
Speaking of HTDA's, have you heard the new non-EP single that just dropped for the upcoming LP? It's a bit poppier than the older stuff, but i'm digging it a lot. Love Trent's use of analog at the end.
Yeah, it's pretty neat (giving that great video another watch atm). Mariqueen's voice really makes HTDA for me. Ice Age in all its monotony is a beautiful listen.
Funny you should say that since for a while, a lot of NIN fans seemed to want to crucify Mariqueen lol I don't think she's Beth Gibbons, but her voice suits the tracks like Trent suits NIN. I've grown to appreciate her a lot and HTDA videos are all great (Spaces in Between being my fav for being so uniquely creepy). Didn't like Ice Age at first with the whole Folk mixed with Analog thing, but it's a grower.
Hey you spoke of the new DM, did you see the video for their first single? Very similar to Condemnation on SOFAD. I know Hanoi Cheyenne loves that track so he may want to check this out too
YYY's got some new work coming down the pipe? Color me intrigued.
Gaga experimental. If she tops herself again then wow at her consistency levels. Would be off the charts.
I like Lady Gaga. Didn't care too much for her last album, but she remains one of the most interesting mainstream pop artists out there. Even a track like Telephone, I can admit that it has a great hook. I always look forward to her videos because she pays homage to a lot of of obscure art (Bad Romance vid is directly inspired by Matthew Barney's Cremaster) Yeah, i'm a geek like that.
