i about slipped this morning while walking out my front door to go to my car. i actually glided about four feet before i stopped. it made my heart jump!!! it would have been pretty terrible for me to fall, which seems to always happen when it is icy around here or anywhere. i'm just an accident waiting to happen...
i was jamming some Joy Divison, while coming home from church (heh heh, yeah...) and it got me thinkin' about what i want to post on today. i thought of none other than, the Editors.
this is another post-punk/indie band that i love simply because they remind me soooooo much of joy division and other similar bands, like Echo & The Bunnymen, The Chamelions, U2 and Depeche Mode. they are more closely relatable to newer bands like, Interpol and Bloc Party, but you can't help but compare them to the old school. this band has been trying to play all that down, but eh, whatever. it's cool bro, just don't forget those who came before, ya know???
okay, so this band started in 2002, in birmingham, england and have been making huge splashes across the pond with their dark, depressing, yet catchy and sometimes danceable music. this all has made the band garner much acclaim and awards as well as appearances at large festivals and television shows. to date, the band has releases three studio albums, two of which have hit #1 in the uk and platinum status.
and those three albums are right here!!! first we have their debut, which is my favorite out of the bunch called, The Back Room. in second we have, An End Has A Start, followed by their latest release, In This Light and On This Evening. the third album hasn't been listened yet by me, but from what i've read, it's radically different, and showcases a major change in style and substance. there are apparently, more piano and synthesizers, which make for a danceable album. take that for whatever you want, just check these out if you are into this sort of dark stuff, and enjoy the tunes!!!
har har slip n' slide...
