    Oh...and fuck Mark Kozelek. :))

    In good fun, I guess I really just don't understand it. I'm sure it's some high-level shit that I don't understand, but I'd never heard of the guy until this. Trying to be objective, it'd be one thing if he had a legitimate beef, but it seems to me he should be pissed at whatever festival scheduler put his set time with his soft rock next to TWOD with it's slightly louder rock (and not the band).

    It's just odd what he's doing. I'm sure he's completely trying to be funny and I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, but he's coming off like the worst of internet "trolls" (did I say that right?) Like fighting or antagonizing for the fun of it. Cool. I'm sure I'll never buy his records now.

    ...(if you don't know about the Kozelek vs. TWOD one-sided feud going on, google it. It's really weird).

    and, hey--how about a heads up next time they are on one of these shows?!?

    vant, you've never heard of red house painters or sun kil moon?

    kozelek is a dick. but 'war on drugs suck my cock' is hilarious in its own way. his second diss track, not so much. but i'm all over his christmas album that's coming out.

    i remember first hearing about this. The sun kill moon singer were on the same time as war on drugs at a festival and he made those comments. Dude was like why? we have no beef with sun kill moon.

    Like I said, maybe I just don't get it. I thought at first it was like a tongue in cheek poke at hipster music, but now it's clear he's just antagonizing them for the sake of doing it, which just screams "troll."

    Going to Sasquatch this year, can't wait to see these guys again, especially now that I'm more familiar with their prior albums and EPs.

    Under the Pressure
    Baby Missiles
    Arms Like Boulders
    Burning
    Lost in the Dream
    An Ocean in Between the Waves
    Disappearing
    Eyes to the Wind
    Red Eyes
    In Reverse
    Come to the City

    Encore:
    Comin' Through
    Suffering
    Your Love Is Calling My Name
    Buenos Aires Beach

    and some video and pics i took.

    Some the songs have incredible solos that don't pop out as much on the album. In particular "Eyes To The Wind."

    Glad it was a great show.

    I don't know how to do that and I gave away my download code. Sorry. I can say that if you like their other stuff, LITD is not a risk e.g. it's, in my opinion their best and most complete album yet.

    I listened to the Lost in a Dream album this morning on my iPod and just purchased it on vinyl this afternoon.
    Great album can't wait to spin this!
