One of the most interesting, unique, and crazy bands I've ever heard. Think of it as a mixture of Pink Floyd's psychedelic sound, with layered Queen vocals, and the production of a modern electronica act. Might as well add some hip-hop into it too.

You need to check out their album.

Golden Price is delectable. It's like....A Bohemian Rhapsody on way too many drugs to rehab out of.

um

does anybody hear The Beatle's Happiness Is A Warm Gun in the chorus of Hot Kathy?

I'm not talking about some subliminal thing, like, the melody is the same.


This band is Ghostland Observatory and White Williams combined

Album of the Year. 10/10

I do hear..or heard the Beatles similarities of HOT KATHY..but that song is so good it doesn't hurt it anyway. They've even covered the Beatles live before


I have heard a little of White Williams when WW's opened for Battles, but I've never heard of Ghostland Observatory.

They really have their own sound in my mind, but I suppose to give an idea the groups they sound influenced by to me are Queen, David Bowie, Prince, Talking Heads, Thomas Dolby perhaps. And then some of the experimental electronic (Power) Pop/Rock stuff like SELF, WIRED ALL WRONG and Elephant 6 bands like The Apples In Stereo, Of Montreal and Olivia Tremor Control. Perhaps even Jellyfish, The Disscociatives, and recent Silverchair.

You can download a couple tracks off the album on their website. But to truly appreciate the sheer magnitude of this band, you need to listen to the entire thing on really good speakers or headphones.

...oh yea and getting high will increase the awesomeness tenfold.

Thanks for your contribution to this worthless thread. You posting a link to something anyone could've found definitely made it into something else...

It's something else already. This thread now has THREE links. Which makes it something better than a thread with merely TWO links.

I think three is a great number shadowborn11. Don't you? How do you feel about three? Jack White loves three, but I don't know if anyone has the same capacity for philosophical "three" thought that he does. I've put it to you (in more than one way) and now you must heed the call.


Oh, and apple pie or apple crisp?

3 is the worst number in the history of numbers...and I've never had apple crisp so I'm not entitled to answer the second question.

Never was a huge fan of three either. Three after all is half of l33t speak. So I shun it.

Go find some apple crisp and bask in it's glory, before and after consumption.

Turn up the, FIRE!

I could go for seeing 3 and Apes and Androids doing a tour together. A&A's appear to put on an awesome, visual show, just based on seeing many videos.

holy shite..I fucking love their previous band CALL FLORENCE POW. I am playing their scarce 2002 "The Strange Situation" EP right now and not surprisingly, totally loving it.

Their full-length debut "These Are the Plans..." is quite good too.

http://www.last.fm/m...ll Florence Pow

anyone whose curious, let me know. CFP is kind of 1/2-way between A&A's and the Self stuff from Matt Mahaffey. But like A&A's, it's grown on me a lot. Experimental electro power-pop.
