Brand New's secrecy may have something to do with why people get so excited about this on this site, but the fact that virtually everyone on this board has a gigantic hard on for this band is still baffling.
It just seems strange that 90% of the people on this board don't just like Brand New, they LOVE them... The overwhelming response to any thread with the words Brand New in it is still baffling to me
I know I'll get hate for this but...
To me Brand New has a few good records and one really good record that sounds like Modest Mouse... Modest Mouse gets WAY less recognition on this site and has a few great records and a few really good records... MM is also fairly ambiguous... Not to compare the two bands, but MM is the closest band to BN that I can think of (in terms of musical similarities and ambiguity)
