you tube.com/watch?v=r0d4Qe9WIHc (Remove space between u and t on youtube) I can't post links I guess

I just listened to this track and it sounds like a rip off/poor mans Sonic Youth or atleast influenced but it's still pretty cool I guess. The vocals are laughable but it has some decent guitar tones and still cool overall. Atleast people are making stuff like this, better than all the mainstream crap you hear on the radio anyways. What do you guys think?

The tags are better than the song itself.
Kiddin.
It definitely has a Daydream Nation-era vibe, and the vocals sounds like Thurston through the whole song and like Kim's towards the end haha.
I think it's a quite deliberate "homage", though.
No hard feelings.
Be free, be happy, eat veggies.

Some heavy hints of DDN and the voice becomes gross by 2'50, but i found the track pretty good and could well see the bass and the drums added on top. The transition beteen the two parts is pretty well down, methinks.

If you like Sonic Youth, how can this be bad? I loved it.
Sounds pretty DDN-ish.

Hope his guy does some drums and basses to this. Could be something good.

Ha my friend saw the comments and he said the vocals were bad he admits, but he did the screaming for fun. But yeah it is pretty DDN I agree.

it isn't bad. I have no idea what the fuck he was doing at 2:50, honestly made me turn the video off. It does sound like he was trying to emulate sonic youth but I guess it was not to be taken seriously. With that said, he should try to find his own voice and add his own ideas to this. I don't really mind bands that remind me of other bands. Life would be pretty difficult to tolerate if I did.

Anchorage by Surfer Blood sounds pretty Youthy. Like, severely Youthy. I like it, though.

Lots of songs sound like SY. I could name some more, but I don't care enough right now.
