Happy to see a Houston date, just might have to make it out for that!

In unrelated news......not sure how, but I've somehow avoided knowing that Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen share an odd relationship.

Not sure what you mean, but Elizabeth Moss, Fred's ex, said the greatest impression he does is of a normal person. Great line, even if it might not be true. Who knows.

Is it just me or has NPR been shoving this band down our throats lately? Yet this is the only promo that really matters. NPR cares way too much whether or not I care.

To be truthful, I'm not all that sure what I'm talking about

However, I did see them on some late night TV show (hosted by one of those SNL guys). They were very funny together and it made me want to DVR Portlandia.

Here is some video from their appearance on, Connan

Now I'm confused. Is there something juicy circulating?

---

Spun the new one twice. Really don't like it all. "Gimme Love" might be their worst song ever. I can't say what the best one on the record is. Not sure if this means more listens will reveal more layers and I'll eventually love it, or if it's just not that great.

I'm not trying to be a contrary dick. I'd love to love it. Ain't happening yet.

Anyone else not digging it?

So tonite i finally realized that All Hands On The Bad One is my third favorite SK record and honestly its contending with Dig Me Out for second behind The Hot Rock which of course is an unassailable masterpiece. The vocals are possibly their best, the production is crisp and balanced, the guitarwork is excellent, the lyrical content very meaningful.. sk lyrics are always my fav, they are so natural and free associative, i just always relate to them like they were my own thoughts and feelings. I hope this new record doesn't let me down, Corin solo stuff lyrically has been as good as any SK material if not also more mature. But Carrie has gotten to unfocused since teaming up with Fred, like her music is inching towards comedy music but not in the fucking deathly cutting satire of Frank Zappa, more like a feminized Weird Al..

I think you'll like it. It's very far removed from HOT ROCK, though. It reminds me of DIG or COMBAT, in that it's all uptempo, occasionally dancy. Nothing close to, say, "Size of Our Love," or even "Get Up." Even CALL had the very moving "Heart Attack." Nothing like that here.

Carrie adds some much needed guitar weirdness, although if you thought her vocals were getting annoying, they are full-on cartoony at this point.

Corin's lyrics are almost shockingly poor. She still has something to say but she doesn't say it very poetically. Nothing close to "Like a star dumped into the universe," for example. Some lines actually make me cringe. Her voice is in great shape, though.

Janet is a genius.

I take it they made an easy-to-digest album to attract new fans, and an easy-to-play album to tour behind. This feels like a stopgap, and is musically speaking a few steps back. But I'm sure the live performances will add some juice.

I trust they'll work harder on the next one and make some art. This one has "product" written all over it and six months from now no one will care much about it. All that said, I have no doubt the reviews will be spectacular.

Cartoony is exactly where carrie was going in wild flag but that band was fun so it was ok. As to corin, have you heard the last corin record? The lyrics were some of her best. I mean in regards to them being kind of personal and free associative

Again, you'll like it. Maybe after a few more spins I'll like it more.

There's a bit on the record Corin sings about getting the kids ready for the day. It feels autobiographical to me. If so, one of those kids was the "baby on the couch" on Combat. That blows my fucking mind, that Corin is sort of chronicling her motherhood in rock. That's not what she's all about, but it's in there. Amazing.

Just formally speaking the lyrics are a bit dippy. I like what she says, just not the boring, clumsy way she says it. But she's clear and direct and I hope she inspires a bunch of 12 year old girls.

Kill my Blues is a totally autobiographical family oriented record

Zappa is an ENEMY OF ROCK & ROLL.

Anyway, SFAD, if I were you I'd definitely listen to No Cities To Love before the show. I understand your point - in fact, I have managed to avoid a single note from the record thus far because I want to discover it from scratch the first time I spin it, just like with all previous seven albums. (OK, that's not COMPLETELY true; I did hear "Get Up" before getting The Hot Rock). But you, you lucky sumbitch, you get to see 'em LIVE, so play that mofo at least once and then bathe in the glory of the live performances.

"When I see the glory / I ain't gonna worry..."

I just want to get that experience. When i first saw wild flag it was only their second show and there was literally nothing out on internet or youtube. The show was the first hearing ever. I've seen about ten bands or groups that i had the privilege of discovering live having never heard their music before and i loved it. So i'm going to try.. but shit five months is a looooooooooong time to purposely avoid a brand fucking new s-k record from a band whose music im admittedly obsessed with
