Long time – no see. I'm sorry. It is my fault seeing as you are unable to post blogs here I suppose. To put it mildly the headquarters has been swamped in rehearsing for the shows last month, school, work and – brace yourselves – doing a little writing and celebrating the release of the album. Speaking of the release. It was rather well received! No surprise to me of course, ahrreem! Literally, there has been zero bad reviews, which is a first for me. I remember when we released the last I Am Bones album we received a hilarious 1/6 star review from Jyske Vestkysten, and I have looked very hard on the internet to find it and post it online, but to no avail. If anybody out there knows where to find it, let me know. Alright, so how did it go with Tectonics in Denmark?
Soundvenue gave it a 5/6 review
Undertoner gave it 5½/6
Stiften gave it 5/6
Vice Magazine liked it
Gaffa, Politiken, BT and Berlingske gave it 4/6
The blogosphere: some dubbed it awesome, and someone delivered a knock-out 6/6
… and so on and so forth. Pretty friggin awesome. When the album is released across Europe later on, I'm not afraid it'll be met with rotten tomatoes :)
Then I did interviews with gaffa, politiken, some blogs and everybody seems happy, but no more than I, because I've taken a shine to a certain someone and on Monday I'm going to see The Walkmen in Copenhagen! People. I cannot stress this enough. The Lisbon-album is the best work of musical art you are likely to ever hear. It takes some getting used to, I know, but it is seriously awesome, as I've stated before.
Yo, let's just talk about the shows we played! It was an exhilarating experience to play the malpractice-songs live. Difficult, yes. But thanks to my beloved band mates and their high level of awesomeness, it all fucking worked out. Yes, there were some blemishes, yes, I sang like a donkey now and then, and yes, it was all very confusing. And yes, Marybell-Marie sang like a million bucks. And yes, our tour-mates in Among Relatives were BOTH kind and rocking, too! Anywhoo, we made it back home, and now we are ready to take on the friggin world. Next step towards world domination is in February where we'll be touring alongside the skull-fucking-ly awesome Marybell Katastrophy – and perhaps Anchorless at a couple of shows (if everything turns out the way I hope).
Now I want to write again! I don't want it to be three years between albums ever again.
God bless, and here are some goddam pictures. I think Q and Simon Christensen took them all :)
