for drawergeeks this week:
so a couple of albums i’m really into right now: the new modest mouse is totally rocking my world. it took me a few listens to get used to the inclusion of the smiths’ guitarist but now that i am i can’t get enough of it. plus james mercer of the shins is all over the place on it. also, i know this came out about a year ago, but i’m really impressed with the killers last album. i enjoyed hot fuss well enough, but it was definitely an album that catered to radio friendly play- or at least resulted in it. i’m sure, because of the popularity of it, the studio probably encouraged the killers to kind of repeat what they did before. instead you can tell the killers made the kind of album they wanted to. and the multiple times the group sings together on it is great. makes me feel like i’m in a tavern or something, listening to my mates sit around and drunkingly sing their favorite pub songs. for those of you who couldn’t really get into hot fuss, i encourage you to check out sam’s town to get another sense of what the killers can sound like.
