If you're in the UK or you use a UK proxy then you can watch their performance of Machine Gun on Jools Holland here.

Edit: changed link because it's not up there yet...give it a day

I saw that last night, I hate to say it but that was the most annoying drum sound I've ever heard in my life...

My mum got it yesterday, haven't had a chance to listen to it properly yet but that lead off single is so bad. Boom boom badabadabadabada. At least its not the first track on the album - although that might have made it easier to skip - so the album isn't terrible from the start.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

I really like the new album although it's difficult not to compare it to Dummy's awesomeness. Nylon smile is probably my favourite track at the minute, but there are a few more that are really growing on me.

Yeah it does sound like a grower as a whole album. Can't say I'm convinced by a lot of it after a couple of listens.

Silence, Small, The Rip are all great songs. About Machine Gun, the vocals in it are beautiful. But those drums are so... boring/repetitive/irritating.

When I listened MG for the first time I was thinking: ''They can't keep THAT drumbeat for the WHOLE song!''.

I love silence. It was fantastic, and they just cut it! That frustrated me a bit.

^Silence is so cool!

I love that song, but I HATE HATE HATE Beth's vocals. I love the music but her vocals are just atonal, out of place, and awful sounding. Its like nails on a chalkboard.

I hated how in Silence, theres this whole groove going with everything and her voice just shatters everything and sounds like ****. Its disgusting.

Aside from awful vocals, I LOVE the instruments on that album

Really? I thought she was great!

Granted, I have a bit of a crush on her, but I thought it sounded fine.

Also, great performance of glory box found here

very true.
I got Third awhile back but haven't listened to it much until recently, and it's grown on me a ton.

I dont know...theyre just annoying sounding...I would have rather had an instrumental song or if they had a male vocoder voice.

*gasp!* What? Did you see that video I posted before? How is that annoying?

Unless you're getting the words 'perfect' and 'annoying' mixed up?

^I guess I mean more on the new album. I like the vocals in that song and a lot of their older stuff, but in their newer stuff...it just sounds too....I dont know...out of place.

How can you possibly not like those vocals?
it fits the mood perfectly.

Listening to their live performance from Coachella.
the sound quality is excellent.

Yeah they're far too good. I'd like to make similar music but I know I'd never be anything like the quality of their stuff.

They're really good at creating atmospheres....
Especially in Dummy.

They were given about 300k by their label to make Dummy. Instead of running to a producer and spending money on expensive studios, they bought all the synths n recording equipment with the money and recorded and produced the album themselves.
Created the masterpiece Dummy is!

Glory Box, Sour Times, Roads, Mysterons, Pedestal, It Could be Sweet, my favorite Roads (named after the Fender Rhodes synth they used for the music) and basically the whole album, its awesome!!
