Best Bit: I don’t often have reason to say this – but the best bit is the key change.
Best Bit: The instrumental bridge.
Best Bit: The opening shout of “I backed my car into a cop car, the other day ..”
Best Bit: The crescendo of that second verse .. “I guess we’ll just have to adjuuuuuu-“
What’s my opinion on Kings of Leon? Well I’m glad you asked!
I like their old stuff, don’t like their new stuff, and think this middle-era album (‘Because of the Times’) had its moments. I especially like this track from it – mostly because of those really impressive and rather strange scream/squeals.
These guys are one of the long-running stalwarts of the Perth music scene. They seem to have been on the line-up for every major local music festival for the past 20 years or more. They’re probably more known for hard rocking, but in this one where they pulled it back and gave us something really heartfelt – it was incredible.
Where the Wild Things Are was a film that left me unsure of whether I liked it or not. I guess the only thing I could say for sure about it is it’s not great and it’s not terrible.
One thing that I didn’t really like was the soundtrack. It’s like Karen O’s voice is too penetrating – it kind of pulls you out of the movie because the songs don’t feel like they’re just there to serve the film.
The flipside of that, however, is that the soundtrack is really good by itself, as hopefully this highlight will prove.
Only familiar with a song or 2 from these guys but I like what I know. Quite a voice on that lass.
Raucous Perth band. Great live.
