Is someone taking the pith?

Well, after months of them being over the blogs, I have shelled out and bought the new albums by LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire and !!! (chk chk chk).

I went to meet my Dad in Durham, England (the old country) two days ago, so loaded them onto my iPod and had pleasant listening there and back.

All three are great records, but if you're into them, you will almost certainly have read a review or five of each of them by now.

However, I couldn't resist posting a couple of tracks from the !!! album, Myth Takes (come on! say it out aloud!) which had me pacing up and down the platform and then tapping my feet on the train, as even I have too much shame to dance in public.

!!! - ' Must Be the Moon.' mp3

!!! - ' Yadnus.' mp3

Buy Myth Takes on Amazon

...and if you haven't heard !!! before, try this from their previous album, Louden Up Now.

!!! - 'Hello? Is This Thing On?.' mp3

Buy Louden Up Now at Amazon

This was the first time I'd given any decent time to listen to !!!.

While I can see why it had you gyrating on the platform (and indeed if I was under the influence and it came on while listening to the mp3 it would probably have the same effect), I regret to say that I found the tracks a bit on the unremarkable side.

It's like Hot Chip....I feel I should like them, but I don't.

I really am getting more miserable as the days, weeks, months & years pass..

Oh and the fact you're indulging in public dancing means you must be getting better. Hurrah !!!
