They're an amazing group. High Violet is one of my favorite albums of the 2010s.

High Violet has some nice things. Theyre a bit boring, though.

don't really know their music but i've mentioned a few times on here already that my film school buddy is the lead singer's little brother and he made the documentary Mistaken for Strangers (which i make a brief cameo in).

i've never seen them perform. i've been drunk in the backseat of Matt Berninger's BMW driving around LA, but have never actually met any of the band.
have you seen the film by chance?
there was supposed to be a series based off the band and the brother- a fictionalized version of the real life people as how they were portrayed in the documentary, but it hasn't materialized and when i heard about it, never thought it would.  it was announced about 5 years after the film debuted- far too late.

Actually spent the morning at work playing a few of their albums.  There's a few tracks i really like, but overall the droll voice wears on me and i can't take too much of it at once.  Fake Empire i think is the song i like best.

Yeah its the voice and subject matter that get tedious after 2 or 3 tunes. I really like the blood buzz song. The singer sounds like hes grown a pair on that one.
