"Days was recorded over the course of five patient months in a remote New Paltz, NY barn-cum-studio with the help of Kevin McMahon (Titus Andronicus, The Walkmen), is a coming of age moment for childhood friends Martin Courtney (Guitar and Vocals), Matt Mondanile (Guitar) and Alex Bleeker (Bass)."

GREAT!!! I *LOVE* coming of age moments. It's gonna be like Stand By Me, only filled with incredibly derivative and emotionally hollow sounding music. also, if kevin mcmahon produced this, why does DAYS (and that first titus record) sound like crap? the walkmen records sound great.

Have these guys played many shows outside of NYC?

Why does he stand like that?

Can't wait to hear their new record. Every thing has sounded great live.

No indie band should take 5 months to make a record these days, seeing as how they all just copy off of each other and utilize the same dumb devices that hipsters fall for every time.

10:14 the second Titus Andronicus record sounds amazing though. It could be that the first one was recorded in a very limited time and a very limited budget. That first record was originally released on Troubleman not XL.

@1:03, truth. does money make THAT much of a difference though? i guess so. even more confounding, patrick's old band, seizing elian, THEIR recordings sound better than that 1st titus record. but not the 2nd i guess, though it's apples and oranges.

1:44 not sure if this supports or opposes your argument, but Kevin McMahon produced that Seizing Elian record also. Maybe they were going for a rougher sound on the first titus album?

@3:36 nah i know kevin did that one too, that's why i don't understand it. yea, maybe airing is just mixed bad. it's hard to listen to. compare the two versions of albert camus (elian vs. grievances version) even.

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2011 1:28 AM
