never heard hlllyh...
Parts and Labor - Receivers
sounding great so far... not as spastic as previous albums. dare i say pretty and poppy?
yeah, this is one of the best of the past couple months. did you ever listen to hlllyh? they're kind of like sister albums to me. similar enough genre-wise, even in regards to execution, but with entirely different approaches.
this new P&L record is really great... the lyrics and melodies are so strangely triumphant sounding to me... it deserves iits own thread.
i have searched far and wide and cannot find a working link for hlllyh. sorry. you should look for it, or at least visit their myspace to listen to the songs they have up there. it's pretty similar to receivers, but a lot more sugary. also, with a little yeasayer-ish/post-folk campfire singalong mixed in. it pretty much has everything.
not that receivers isn't amazing. at this rate it'll be a top twenty eoy record for sure (for me at least). but the mae shi made an album that pretty much covers the majority of the modern musical world in less than an hour. and it's still very much a glitch-punk album. speaking of which, i'm putting that on blast.
