On the subject of recent acts, I'd be a lot more excited for new Chromatics if all the stories about Dear Tommy didn't seem like a completely orchestrated load of bullshit (that sounds very similar to the history behind Prince's Black Album) to generate interest in a 'lost album' and if the concert I attended wasn't the biggest load of pretentious garbage that sounded like absolute dogshit.
At least the vinyl was cheap. I'll check out the new stuff soonish.
Meh. I don't live in a city anyone cares about, so the chances of me ever getting to see them live are pretty much nil. I also don't follow them (or anyone, really) close enough to get annoyed with new album shenanigans. I just enjoy when new music springs up and Closer to Grey definitely scratched the itch.
