desperacidos is allright, they kinda don't sound like anything new. and Bright Eyes is allright.  There is just a lot better indie music out there than that.

you would probably like Reggie and the Full Effect though if you like that kind of stuff.  They're actually better cuz its funnier, but they must be way less talented cuz they play the same song basically each time.


Well Ben old dear, I can see where you coming from and I definitely don't see anything NEW in desaparecidos... but they're a band that are extremely special for me. I don't know, they represent a certain stage of my life, they bring up lots of nostalgic feelings... and this is excluding the fact that the lyrics and the music in general is great too.

Take the track Manana for example... with the use of the keyboards and the children-like church singing 'oooh oooh' or something in the background, it gives it something epic...

The thing I like most about Desaparecidos though, is Oberst' his voice, and I allready loved that the most before I became a Bright Eyes/Oberst fan. In Desaparecidos, he often sounds likes he on the verge of jumping on a fucking roof or swallowing his own tong. It sounds so... genuine to me, I dont care if it really is or not, it just toutches me like the Pixies and Dinosaur Jr. did.

NOTES:
a lot of this stuff will be hard to find on most normal music download programs, so if you like any of it, i can send the albums through AIM.
im plannig on ripping more cds to my computer so i can add more bands and link songs. i recomend anyone who likes indie/pop/rock to download all the songs, unless you already know them.
the Broken Social Scene song is a rare b-side, so get it if you already know you like them, and DeClann Debarra is the lead singer of Clann Zu's solo project. its quite a good song.
and the Metric song is an old one and very very cool. the Xiu Xiu song is an unreleased b-side, so enjoy it if youre already a fan.


Merry Christmas. i believe these songs will stay up for 5 days, so get them while theyre their.

i dont know ahahahh i haven't been listening too long but the whole album "happiness" is really good....i'd probably say "Touch" right now. Or the song before that one.  I just burned it like 5 days ago.

Oberst, if your reading this bitch, fuck bright eyes! You promised your bandmates you'd bring the new Desaparecidos out this year! Now we'll have to wait another year? Fuck that man! I mean, all youre giving us is a lousy riff with a guy talking about nuclear shit? I mean, give me a break, wheres the new record! Thank you for your time, and stop shitting your pants with bright eyes












ps. no I love bright eyes. BUT spent more time on desaparecidos right?

i think i just like bright eyes better. but that might also be because they've released more.

I like Desaparecidos more but Im leaving that on the side for a moment. I just wish he would go and make the second record allready. This society needs it. I need it. His mate Denver Dalley needs it. Cause I sure can't survive on his band Statistics.
