>>61992067 never listened to them because of the bad image they have, I imagined them to sound like a mixture of Mumford & Sons and Fleet Foxes, but then I listened to Yellow House and got a great psych/prog folk album. Their more recent stuff turned out to be more accessible but still far from the generic indie folk they always get compared to
>>61992340 Could you describe how they came to have a bad image? Because I agree with your assessment completely, but when I mentioned them in a thread, I got a ton of comments like these: >>61992259 >>61992067 also ones talking about their "whiteness" WTF does that have to do with music?
>>61992051 back in 2009 they were amazing. i think their scene pretty much died though and they are one of those nyc bands thats gotta fight to stay relevant atm. there was a huge expolsion between 2006-2008 in nyc bands and whats left is a lot of bullshit shallow bands
late 2000s pitchfork-core is a death sentence on /mu/- dont bother asking about bands like these.
theyre pretty good. kind of like vampire weekend in how white they are, but better, at least by a bit. yellow house is 8/10 and their later stuff is okay pop. theyre for sure better than 95% of 'indie' bands, shame they get dragged into the same playlists as garbage like the lumineers. daniel rossen is too good for the band though.
i think mu hates them now because of their image, but back in the day when mu was white this band was quite liked.
I listened to Two Weeks back when they were getting popular and it made me want to fall asleep. I'm not sure I understand the appeal of these indie bands that sound bored and lethargic in all their music.
>>61993203 >but back in the day when mu was white this hype shifted genres and these guys got left behind same thing happened with anco although chz was definitely another nail in the coffin there's a reason vampire weekend isn't discussed much despite winning aoty 2013
They're okay. Started off with great potential but much like their peers like dirty projectors they basically went trendy and for thus have been forgotten at this point. They're still probably better than 99% of "indie" bands of their time. Shame most of their fanbase now is tumblr tards trying to look cool by listening to their worst album, veckatimest.
Ed's a complete attention whore though, I really hate him.
>>61993827 Hey man, I just shared my admittedly limited opinion on their one single that was popular. You seem to be upset to a degree that is more severe than that opinion would warrant. I would recommend you not take things that are not personal so personal in the future.
