    Who is your new Radiohead?

    I don't think artistic integrity and having varied sound are the same thing. In my opinion Beach House are one of the most artistic acts out there right now. their instrumentation is usually very sparse, which creates a lot of space in the music. the kinds of spaces they create are beautiful. a lot of people criticize them for always using the same kind of instrumentation: drum machine loop, keys, some decorative guitar, etc., but if that's their medium then that's their medium. i respect that. no one ever criticizes Nirvana for arranging all their songs with distorted power-chord guitars, drums, and bass, or Bach for writing so many fugues that sound "the same". i feel like Beach House has created their own sound, their own genre, and they are free to explore it as deeply as they want. i love pretty much all of it, and to me there are huge differences between their songs when you listen to the small details. if you like some of their stuff i would encourage you to listen more closely. and i don't mean that in a condescending way; i genuinely think you might find something in there that you didn't notice before. Side note: Scatterbrain has always been one of my absolute favourite RH songs, so in some senses maybe our tastes are similar! or maybe you used to love that song but your taste changed. oh i don't know. this post is getting too long.

    I see what you're saying. That's true. It certainly wasn't the instant classic that Lucky was. I was fortunate enough to be at one of those 2006 shows when they did play it (Montreal) and it was pretty exciting to hear that one live. But yeah, Lucky is pretty awesome. Incidentally, I just listened to OKC for the first time in ages (maybe a year?) the other day and particularly enjoyed Lucky 🙂

    I actually really liked I Want None of This when it came out. I remember that it reminded me of Neil Young's "Soldier" when I first heard it. I also remember thinking it had a bit of a haunted house vibe, which, yes, We Suck Young Blood also has. Down is the New Up, too (which, of course, came later). I was excited to think the whole next album might have that feel. It didn't. But In Rainbows was pretty good nonetheless.

    Manager: Hey Thom, do you want that charity song from 2005 on this streaming platform? [Manager shows Spotify to Thom, Thom browses through Spotify for a moment] Thom: I want none of "I Want None of This" on this.

    no idea where the audio is from, but there's a video of the full Toronto 2 show on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-QApsXuEIE (multi-cam, and even has audio for the parts with no video)
