  • Is "House" not on the new album? Or has it been re-titled "My Girls"? God, I hope it's on there.
  • Yes, Localwakko, "My Girls" is the new title for "House". I can't wait to here the studio version, so excited! <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->
  • yeah, i caved for the first time in a while the other day and listened thru all my favourite boots. needless to say, i'm even more excited about MPP than i was before!
  • assuming GUYS EYES (the best title haha! TASTE!) is SFA (!) then that leaves only one unheard song which is a bit odd! tho to me a few will be ones from memory i don't even know how they go... i hope i didn't over do any of the songs like i did with strawJAM ... hell even feels i was sad how purple bottle changed the dooze and blunder line (stevie wouldn't see shit coming! and he'd? wonder! WOO!) /// and garsh coulda used the yelly i NEED! to see! a doctor... i hope they're not too lemming about single 1 / single 2 / EP but whatever they do is... what they do... if they do another post album ep i hope they make it 4 tracks and the first track is the title track! surely they'd have done a TON of other new songs in the last year or so... it'd be great to have a more mini album / biggie EP of sorts tho i have no clue when this damn box set or "movie" will come abouts... everything is coming out ducked~
  • I can't wait to hear this album next (or late this) year. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
  • I'm more excited about the boxset, to be honest. I think the boots might have [i]sliiiightly[/i] ruined MPP for me. I won't be listening to LP10 boots.
  • well i saw them do MPP songs twice live and a bare minimum of boots so i hope that wasn't too much... Strawberry I felt I over did it but that one too i barely listened to boots? I'd have to live under a rock!
  • merriweather post pavilion is right by my house too and is the stage i graduated highschool on! i also go there alot for concerts. i <3 ac
  • The cover for this album is mind-boggling.
  • At first I thought it was an animated GIF, but then when I realized it was just a static image, it was pretty trippy <!-- s:mrgreen: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green" /><!-- s:mrgreen: -->
  • Yeah I was like hey wait. They can't put a gif as- ohhh i see what you did there.

Sounds Great! I've tried to listen to it since then and it will not play. Glitch in the server or has it been taken down?

The other songs work on the page. I guess it must have been taken down. Anyone happen to get an audio capture of it? I was wanting my wife to hear it.
  • If anyone downloaded that from the link, did it have anything else? Maybe I could put it in the Gets section. I recently got an MP3 version of some "concept" version of Merriweather Post Pavilion, here's the info on it. (Song length is in parentheses).

  • yeah i downloaded the live "concept" album a couple weeks ago and have given it a few listens along with some other boots, but im gonna hold off on studio leaks unless the whole thing gets leaked in quality.
  • is it just me or is "My Girls" their best song yet?
  • I guess this is my first post on this site, since Rerz is dead now (which i hadnt been on in like a year). I saw these guys in Phili at the S.L. Ballroom about a year ago or so. I was expecting a bunch of Strawberry Jam, but was hoping for some oldies, and i was pleasently surprised to hear a number of songs i had no idea about. These songs of course are going to be on MPP, which im flipping off the wall for. I really like the Live at 930 Club recording, but i had to slice it into seperate songs, and adjust some of the audio. But Brothersport, man that song has me pumped. I got the leak for it, which i tried to resist not to listen to but i did, and my god its fun. I pre-ordered the double LP off of the Domino website, and as excited as i am for it. Is it me, or does this album seem a little similar to SJ? Dont get me wrong, it's absolutly awesome, but when i think of AC and how they release albums, i think of variety, that each [i]full[/i] (not an EP) is distinctly seperate from one another, and the songs on it sort of have a sound that only fits on that album.
  • any chance i can get a copy of the live at 930 club show? i believe i went to theshow and would love to get a copy.
  • Sure. I guess i should find a place to upload it to. It's just dissapointing that NPR never took the time to split the show up, or even make an effort to keep the EQ balanced throughought the show, it took me like 2 hours to get it all organized. Just PM me until i find a place to put a copy of it. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> I compressed the whole concert into a Zip File, so as long as you download at least WinZip the trial version you can open/extract the files and be able to have a copy of the concert. PM me if you want me to Email it you. I'll still try and find a place to upload it to.

  • I can relate, i like SJ. But its far from my favorite. It's not like i look at the various albums and go, man they sure havent gotten better since Feels, just different, very electronic. Which i can respect, I mean they have really done some crazy stuff with renewing some of their almost "lost" music when it comes to live performance, like [i]Chocolate Girl [/i]or [i]Hey Light[/i] I think my favorite song off of SJ is probably #1 but i do like the creative vocals of For Reverend Green. However, i have high hopes for Merriweather Post Pavilion. From hearing all the live performances, and a few videos, and this one leak. It sounds very electronic(like SJ). Still i think it will have its own flow, and perhaps there will be somthing distinct about it even though it has a SJ electronic approach. Like a new take on vocals. I thought Panda Bear's vocals on Brothersport were very clean and crisp, its got some Reverb, but you can really hear his voice clean cut. That to me is very different from SJ with how Avey Tare and Panda Bear sounded on that album. -cheers!
  • Hrm, what do you mean by electronic? To me, I would say that Spirit was probably more electronic than the others, simply because of the high frequencies and the way the songs are, though it has a lot of different qualities. I've always wondered how it would sound if they ever had a horn/sax in their music. Danse also had some subtle tonal stuff or Feels (Banshee and Daff), not to mention the songs in the Grass single. SJ to me was definitely more [i]direct[/i] than any of the previous albums, since the vocals were more audible <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> so to speak, and the instruments or the flow of the music didn't seem to fill or over-flow and hide lyrics as much as before for some songs. We'll see how MPP actually comes out in a month or so :]
  • Samples Samples Samples. It felt like SJ was all about the Samplers, with a little bit of drums and guitar. They also took some samples from old records of composers and such for Safer and Cuckoo Cuckoo. It just seems like before they started playing SJ songs on tour, Panda Bear would almost always be on drums, now he mainly uses his samplers (ever since he released Person Pitch). Dont get me wrong, i love it, I just see this "newer" way of playing as very electronic.

    Finally, a real leak here, for those interested: [removed link]
  • It's funny because i dont think i have ever been excited...like really excited for an AC album release. I got into AC right after they released [i]Feels[/i] and slowly worked my way backwards, and loved every album for what it was. My buddy from school, who introduced AC to me, would be like "oh yeah, heres a CD of [i]People[/i] it just came out, and later i found [i]Prospect Hummer[/i] on my own. I was so enveloped with having all of AC's music at once, that i didnt really pay attention to what was comming out later. I didnt know about Strawberry Jam until i watched T in the Park, and my friend called me one day and was like..."yeah theres a leak of the full album, including Safer on Indie Torrents", which i jumped right on. So i guess, now that im "caught up" and hungry for more AC material since im spent, not tired, but spent on everything else i have heard in the past few years, Im so psyched for [i]Merriweather Post Pavilion[/i]. Ive only gotten the Brothersport leak, and im freaking out. I just can't wait to listen through the whole thing!
  • I'm in a way similar to that, except that I did keep up with what's coming up and stuff. [color=#BF0000][size=200][b]To Everyone: Please Don't Link To Leaks[/b][/size][/color] Even if it's a fake.
  • Also. That link up above is fake. You will get ric roll'd. I have been Ric Roll'd. Oh well.
  • not anymore. my girls leaked officially as of an hour ago via some blog.

  • I pre-ordered it a few days ago, im curious though, will the digital code be active and able to download the same day? or does that count as part of the MP3 release on the 20th?
  • ^That's a good question. I'm thinking about pre-ordering both.
  • some kid in the U.K. has it, posted blurry pictures. leak is imminent. in time for christmas?
  • Has what? the album, as in, physically...in his hands? or just has a full album leak mp3...
  • this album is awesome
  • [quote="Birdee"]Has what? the album, as in, physically...in his hands? or just has a full album leak mp3...[/quote] There have been people with the vinyl for a few days now, and there is a crummy 128kbp/s floating around. One disappointing thing: no tracks longer than 6 minutes, but it's still quite good.

  • Yes it is, I just have a thing for long tracks is all <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
  • Finally got a full leak, it's everything i thought it could be and hoped it would be. The quality is fine, if you really turn it up loud, you will notice a few small crackles here and there, but other than that it's great for a vinyl conversion. Cant wait to DL the mp3 when its realeased too!
  • [youtube] this is the studio mp3 of "In The Flowers" with live at the Gargoyle as video.
  • I believe someone asked if we would be able to use the free album download that came with the pre-ordered LP; the answer is yes! I e-mailed domino/insound about the matter and they confirmed that you will be able to use the free download right away. I am stoked. Amazing how I've avoided even having the slightest urge to download the leak! Cheers! - Jon
  • Just got the vinyl in the mail today, its sweet, so trippy looking!
  • I'd try to get the vinyl if I actually had some kind of record player :/ I want to see the art in person ... damn the wait <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
  • you should buy the vinyl anyway, can still use the code that comes with it to get the mp3's
  • Birdee, DOMINO went ape shit over your youtube posting!
  • not really...they were like...we think this is copyright violation...and they left it up for another day...and then they decided...hey! this is copyright violation and took it down <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->
  • how long did it take for your pre-order to arrive?
  • idk, i pre-ordered it about 2-3 weeks ago. And it just showed up a few days ago, i wasnt expecting it, shipping wise. I have no idea, i dont know when they sent it out, they never messaged me.
  • Did you get the 2 live songs from the pre-order? Can't believe tomorrow is the big day for the WAV/MP3 release code; I wonder if they are basically the CD version.
  • what 2 live tracks?
