First of all, I want to tell all of you who also got off the list congrats, and those who didn't keep hoping. For those of you who got in though, where do you plan on living? I think I'm going to live on campus (Manchester Village). Anyone else?

You know, those scene kids with that swoop of hair that covers one eye? And they wear girl pants.
I should say that most of my actual friends genuinely understand music, and don't get into all of the indier-than-thou BS, but when you go to these shows, talk to people at music stores, read on the internet, and just associate with this crowd and the pbr bars associated with it, you tend to just run into too many people of that mindset. So I'm always a little suspcious
Yeah, it's one thing to be weird and another to be self-consciously weird. I mean, but basically TMV's vision is to be a stranger and more rocking Santana, if you ask me. The music is so much more Latin than anyone realizes. It probably kills them that that angle isn't the focal point of the reviews, but their roots are with ATDI, so rock will always be the touchstone.
I really think of their music as a soundtrack to a month-long psychadelic trip in the deserts of Mexico, or something like that. If nothing else, it's definitely a musical distillation of magical realism. Some of their songs make more sense to me than long passages of Rushdie. I like the comment about how they set up their own little reality.
I am interested to hear the next album...I definitely will keep following their exploits for another disc or two at least.
Has anyone here heard the Autolux album?
