i quite like the killers. i thought they were only big here.

although their new stuff is laughingly awful. produced by a guy from reading too. the shame!

I like the new album. Except for Human, which isn't "awful" but not nearly as good. Too repetitive.

Asher

And they're huge over here. They're performing at the big arenas all over North America.

Nothing wrong with The Killers, but can we mock you anyway?

Asher

Go ahead.

Was awesome, you wankers.

M83 opened for them. What a crap band.

As I tweeted from the concert: they sound like a slightly harder version of Enya. And the shoegazing was riveting to watch.

M83's older stuff was edgier and more lively.

The Killers are not indie.

Oerdin

I know but M83 is or rather used to be popular before they got super mellow.

Asher
24-01-2009, 19:34:31
And I hate M83.

I think that most recent M83 album is pretty good. It's all pretty pleasant, can't really see what there is to hate about it.

Killers on the other hand are turgid. He's a terrible live singer too.

I have to agree that the Killers kind of suck or at least they aren't my cup of tea.

Actually, the singing was awesome live. Some of the melodies were slightly changed and were actually more impressive vocally.

And as for M83, it is very "pleasant" in the same way elevator music is pleasant. When you go to a rock concert and you have to deal with an hour of live elevator music, it's not the best environment...

Here you go, from a concert a couple days ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ1068WjFT0

The audio's pretty good on this one, especially in "high quality" mode.

Far from a terrible live singer.

Someone snuck in an HD camcorder to the Killers Toronto show a few months ago, the quality is awesome:

The Killers had some good radio songs. No bashing here.

He doesn't do the high bits and shouts a lot of it. I don't think he's very good. Hey ho.

Their performance at the MTV VMA's a few months back was very stylishly art directed though, I'll give them that much:

M83 is French so they have a different take on what is current and hip but they are musically very talented. Yes, I like their older stuff better but everyone has different tastes and they seem to be selling plenty of records.

The vocals are a bit off in that performance, definitely -- they're much better at the concert I was at and in the YouTube vids. My guess is the earpiece was fucked up -- it's happened before to many bands at award shows.

Still, even this is far from terrible.

Here's their performance from Toronto, same song:

Song starts at 1:30:

i like m83. they are definitely better than the killers in terms of style but the killers have better song structures.

I quite like the Killers, I enjoyed them at Reading last year.

Was it Stuart Price producing their new stuff?

I don't mind The Killers, but I really, really can't stand that "Human" song. Gets right on my tits!

but 'are we human or are we dancer?' is surely the greatest lyric of this millenium
