Their violent and graphic yes, but there's something oddly poetic about them, and very immersive
You have to read along with the text, because they're hard to understand. But they're worth it.
If I remember correctly, they once made very childish comments about electronic musicians at a festival, saying that it wasn't real music because they didn't use real instruments and that stuff. That ruined my sympathy for them, it doesn't make their music any less brilliant though.
not him but Win does come off as a bit of a dick. most of the band seem really cool but Win is pretty fucking pretentious
in fairness to him I think it's just cause he hates interviews so much which is understandable, he's still a genius
here's an interview:
THE LAST DEFENDER OF THE SPRAWL
SAID WELL WHERE DO YOU KIDS LIVE?
WELL SIR, IF YOU ONLY KNEW WHAT THE ANSWER'S WORTH.

>ALICE DIED, IN THE NIGHT
>I'VE BEEN LEARNING HOW TO DRIVE
I just looked it back up, it's not quite as harsh as I remember it. It was a bunch of years ago at Coachella and Win Butler said: "Shout out to all the bands still playing actual instruments at this festival." The whole "real instruments" debate is so childish and unnecessary and I didn't expect a guy like him that sings about open-mindedness to say something like that.
I LIKE DOGS MUCH BETTER
memes aside nouns are one of the most promising rock bands around right now

probably the most amount of thought i've ever put into a review
>probably the most amount of thought i've ever put into a review
have you reviewed this record? would love to read it if you tell me where I could find it
and yeah i love the narrative of the record, the album cover is so fitting and despite the meme-ery of "I LIKE DOGS MUCH BETTER" it's a great lyric and always gives me the feels
