How about a thread for Jeff Ament's favorite band.



I've been saying these guys are the spiritual successors to PJ long before Jeff was touting them. Their live album is the closest any band I've heard has come to matching the power and fury of Abbruzzese era PJ. And the singer has a combination of aggression, tenderness and empathy that reminds me of 90s Ed.

Please use this thread to talk about IDLES.

They definitely don't have PJ's chops (yet), but there are moments on their live album where it's just bass and drums that remind me so much of old versions of Blood, Why Go, Leash, etc.

I can't hang with these clowns. Something about it, comes off as pretty contrived to me.

I get that. You hit the nail on the head for why I can't get into Big Thief. Lots of people seem to dig them, but they're too affected for my tastes.

IDLES, on the other hand, just works for me on every level.

Big Thief has its moments, I liked that gnarly solo at the end of that long-ish single, but all in all that band's appeal is lost on me as well.

But yeah Idles, for me, is a hard pass.

Just diving in. Ultra Mono RULES, but nothing else has blown me away yet.

They sort of remind me of a more heavily produced, slightly more poppy mclusky:

At the end of Mr. Motivator I thought he was saying, "You're a joke, how fucking saggy," which didn't seem very nice. But I guess he's referencing a British boxer.

this guy's cadence on virtually every song is almost the same, and i find it hard to get past it. that's why i love grounds so much; it's actually different.

although the refrain in model village is pretty kick ass.

I dig 'em. Have probably listened to their 2 latest albums a few times through each.

listened to their whole 'Joy as an Act of Resistance' today, first time all the way through

really like these guys

curious what they will sound like a couple albums from now.... there's definitely room for them to do more instrumentally, which i think they are capable of

but fine where they are now

I can't get on-board with the Big Thief slight in this thread, but "slightly more poppy mclusky" sounds delightful.

Oof, I take it back--these lyrics are so on-the-nose. Music's fun but there's a lot of cringe here, certainly feels more affected than BT. Not for me.
