I am PUMPED for the new album. But I'm gonna wait like a good boy for the whole thing. No previews. No singles. Just patience.

I didn't go for a Roundhouse ticket because I'm not sure if I'm going to be in the country but I'm regretting that decision more and more.

I'm feeling pretty confident about the chances of them playing Glastonbury this year...

Looking forward to new music from these boys, hope it's similar to the  the early mk2 albums, never listed to the old stuff pre Emerson.

Pleased to have tickets for the Friday show.

Worth a listen for the added lyrics and second half. The first half is quite similar to the original, which is obviously great, but I was hoping for a little more.
Still gold.

The Born Slippy evolution CD is particularly special too.

So they're playing at Coachella in April...

Reckon they'll do any other US dates? I'm back in the country from February to May, which means I'm missing their Roundhouse show. So I'm pretty desperate to see them.

I guess there's always the hope they'll play Glastonbury too...

They have to announce more US dates. Then again, last time they were here, they only did 3 shows or something. New York, Cali, Red Rocks. Hopefully they hit Chicago this tour!

 They did a change of venue with the Red Rocks show back in 2007. They moved it to The Ogden due to low ticket sales.  I know this because I was about to attend after I witnessed Daft Punk there earlier that summer.

Time for Rave on the Rocks 2.0 - God Mode Edition. Chemical Brothers, Underworld, and Leftfield.


and yes please, a Non festival Chicago date!

Dude. Tell me you're coming back through San Francisco. Eric Prydz is doing a massive show on February 26th here.

I am sure about this track. Sure that I love it. Great balance of unexpected/experimental and cheesy catchy pop.

I've really been getting into synthy distorted electronic kinda rock/punk music recently, and this is like Underworld read my mind. It's punchy and unrefined and just perfect.
Never for money, always for love.

I need an intermission or I'm gonna Eve of Destruction in my pants

Hmmm...

Listening for the first time right now. I wasn't sold at the beginning, but then 3:04 happened... Rick really has a way with texture that a lot of electronic musicians just don't take the time to investigate (present company excluded, of course). It's clean. But gritty. And distorted. And warm. But cold. And spikey. But soft. It's certainly better than some of the low moments of Barking.  The vocals are erring a little on the Sleaford Mods side of spoken lyrics (which I know are derivative of Karl in a way) and there are some Damon Albarn-ey tones to things as well, which I like.

I'm diving in again...
My initial thoughts were... When I see them live this year (because damn if I'm not going to see them somewhere), how is this going to sit next to Pearl's Girl and Kittens? But actually, it's a little reminiscent of JAL to Tokyo with its obnoxiousness, even if it is a little slow, which worked so well as a set opener back in 2005.
I'm excited for the rest. I was apprehensive when I saw how many tracks there were. But this is very exciting. I will be playing this a lot this week, I can tell.

Good times.

EDIT: I am in love.

Dude. Tell me you're coming back through San Francisco. Eric Prydz is doing a massive show on February 26th here.

I'm staying in Portland with my missus for most of the time, but I'm hoping we'll get some time to venture out to places. She used to live in the Bay Area so we'll definitely be down to visit at some point! I'll let you know.

Did anybody mention that they are playing the BBC 6 Music Festival on February 13th? Haven't read all the postings in here.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/events/eq6c8g/performances/l4rxn3

A lot more playing the festival like Primal Scream, Daughter, Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve, Bloc Party, Guy Garvey, Roisin Murphy, Suede, Tricky, Roots Manuva , Ron Size & DJ Krust, Geoff Barrow and others
no idea, no idea

This is ridiculously sad, as they've mentioned they're preparing a special live set specifically for that performance.
