Which are the call backs? I'm normally okay at spotting these, but it's been so long since I listened to the Acts that to me there's some slightly familiar bits which I just can't place.

Ahhh, come on now. They announced a one-off reunion show at the Forum on the Tuesday, and then when that sold out they added another date in Brixton ... on the Monday. That really pissed off a lot of...

Same here. I pay for Spotify, but I always buy albums I want, not necessarily even in physical copies, so that I can put it on my iPod. I don't stream music on my phone because the battery is...

There's a live video of PPL MVR here. There's an extra guitarist on stage who doesn't look too dissimilar to Vin... but maybe it's just the hat, I dunno....

...and I second Moving Mountains (both Waves and self-titled), La Dispute's Wildlife, and the latest two Pianos Become The Teeth records. And also Tigers Jaw's self-titled, that does it for me too.

Surprised that nobody's mentioned All Get Out - The Season yet. That's an excellent autumn record (and, well, an excellent record in general). I used cycle to my job selling dog food in a freezing...

I'm getting a real Xcerts vibe off this record, especially on Gum ... which is, oddly enough, also the name of an Xcerts song. Anyway. Great record.

I'm interested to see the split between people who liked This Couch... and dislike this and the people who dislike This Couch and like this. I'm very much the former, I adored This Couch while this...

Haha, fair point, but there are some labels that release a lot of digital music via bandcamp, such as Topshelf and No Sleep, and there are also some fairly large artists on there, such as Sufjan...

Bandcamp have got it figured out pretty well... once they introduced the whole bandcamp user profile thing, my spending probably doubled or tripled. It's perfect, but it's just such a shame that more...

Love the band, fuck those specific views, but whatever. I think most discerning music fans can cope with a little cognitive dissonance.
Anyway, more Aaron Sprinkle can only be a good thing. Emery, if...

It's a bit different and at first I wasn't sure if this is a real Gaslight song, but then he said "baby" in the second verse, so it's authentic all right. It's pretty good, it's like it's both one of...

I've been listening to this all week, it's really grown on me.
Does anybody know where to pay to download it which isn't on iTunes? Otherwise, I'll buy the CD.
