that archers of loaf song is probably my favourite of the songs i posted, i'm glad you like it. did you download icky mettle? 'representative of youth' is really the best way of putting it, it's so sloppy and genuine. sadly i don't know of any albums that really sound like it, but something that comes kind of close in a weird way is blood on the wall's awesomer. i really think that they're one of the most criminally unknown bands of the 2000s, and all three of their albums are incredible in different ways.
this isn't even one of the better tracks off awesomer, but it's one of like three of their songs that's on youtube, so it'll have to do. they sound almost identical to the pixies, but that kind of honesty is refreshing in a sea full of bands that pretend that they aren't aping the pixies. their first album is a bit less polished and their third is a bit more, but i think awesomer strikes the balance perfectly. it doesn't really sound much like icky mettle but for some reason they remind me of each other, maybe you'll like it.
okay, so i listened to them all but i can't form an opinion on them unless i hear them again. what i do want to say is that i downloaded an archers of loaf album and it is really excellent. reminds me a lot of pixies in a way, it's really...yearning, and juvenile. not juvenile like immature, but more like representative of youth. it just sounds good.
i don't think you know me, but i love your taste in music from what you've posted on here and i have some freeleech tokens to burn. mind giving me some recommendations? i don't particularly care what genre, just whatever you are digging at the moment!
