I could write so many things about this album…but it reminds me most of the east coast. Caravan with my friends on warm summer days, having bevvies on the front patio of Molly’s, blasting punk rock around a campfire…
Good times, good times.
November is too far away!!!
On a more serious note… you should listen to the lyrics on this album, because they are great…and have nothing to do with the east coast or any of the things I mentioned above.
Tuesday evening after spending the entire day listening to this album, I went and saw Modest Mouse and Brand New play at Sleep Train in Chula Vista. There were no opening bands, and each played a 2 hour set.
I felt like an old lady when Brand New started playing. It may be time to jump on the ear-plug bandwagon… 😐
This album certainly isn’t for everyone, but I absolutely love it. I’ll be seeing Brand New on Tuesday, and I can’t freakin’ wait 🙂
I’m not a very angry person, so I put on this album when I want to pretend I am an angry person. Music allows you to put yourself in someone else’s shoes…and I like that.
When I am angry, I believe the anger cancels out the anger! Hooorah!
Track 9- “Daisy”
I’m a mountain that has been moved I’m a river that is all dried up I’m an ocean nothing floats on I’m a sky that nothing wants to fly in I’m a sun that doesn’t burn hot I’m a moon that never shows it’s face I’m a mouth that doesn’t smile I’m a word that no one ever wants to say.
[Child Speaking:] I don’t wanna be, He wasn’t finding anybody when he was on the shelf I saw him in my dream
I’m a mountain that has been moved I’m a fugitive that has no legs to run I’m a preacher with no pulpit Spewing a sermon that goes on and on and on.
Well if we take all these things and we bury them fast And we’ll pray that they turn into seeds, to roots and then grass It’d be all right, it’s all right, it’d be easier that way. Or if the sky opened up and started pouring rain Like he knew it was time to start things over again It’d be all right, it’s all right, it’d be easier that way.
So…I love this band. That being said, the one time that I saw them live was a huge disappointment. However, it wasn’t their fault. The sound guy messed up their monitors so everything was completely off. Such a bummer.
I’ve been to quite a few concerts where this has happened…and it SUCKS! You are so excited to see a live show that you pay way more money than the album you bought…and the sound is terrible. No bueno…
Despite the crappy sound job, this band had incredible energy on stage. I would love to see them again (in a better venue). Look’s like they’re playing The Roxy in August! 🙂
Ahhhhh…the power of music! After an emotionally draining date I had on Sunday, this album acted as a great pick-me-up. It is interesting to me how quickly music can refresh the mind. It is even more interesting to me how much music from my teenage years can help remedy a bad day.
I listened to this album all throughout high school. It was a favorite that I popped in the cd player of my parents’ toyota camery and did my long drives through the Lancaster country side 🙂
