The Dismemberment Plan: Change [Sep. 25th, 2001|12:52 am]
collating bones
Not as immediately grabby as their live show--not many things are (I mean, they tore it up in my radio station's sound room)--but satisfying and more subdued than I'd have guessed. And deeper, and I love the way they integrate little bits of electronics that work the same way the tape loops in Mission of Burma did, and Travis's voice is warming and complexifying where it could've simply Shudder to Think-ified, and... I think, on a first listening, I really like this.

ezra, my dood, is totally obsessed over this new album. he gave me a listen, and i agree that it's quite good. he thinks that guy is the Hottest Boy in Indie Rock, and -- as I have never seen them -- I was wondering if you would agree.

Hottest boy in indie-rock I don't know about--that'll always be Mark E. Smith to me (cough)--but Travis does kinda rock the Craig Wedren style (the sound isn't the only Shudder to Think-ism) about them.

Also, when they played at 'FMU a year or so ago, they were INCREDIBLY friendly and nice. For which they score lots of non-musical points, and possibly even hotness points, if that kind of thing floats your yacht.
