swim i notice that you're from North Carolina...you gonna go to this? I'm seriously considering going to ATP, almost exclusively to see Polvo.

I'm listening to Today's Active Lifestyles just now and it's got me in the mood.

I've only ever heard people talk about Todays Active Lifestyles.

What's their other stuff like because I just found Exploded Drawing & Celebrate the New Dark Age.

they're good too, but i don't like the vocals as much.
so, they're good albums but are more singles based
whereas i think todays active lifestyles works great as an album

I knew they had to play Cat's Cradle! Thanks, I was kind of upset about them setting up that festival date without playing NC first. I'm going to ask my brother to go ahead and by tickets because that's going to sell out. Their original drummer isn't playing with them. I don't know the story behind that but he plays in Sanford band, Dr. Powerful.

Whose heard the new album? I thought it was better than anything they have come out with in the past ten years. But i'm curious what everyone else thought.

If you don't have it PM me and i'll send you a link (if I like you enough o'course).

I only have Today's Active Lifestyles and Exploded Drawing but i like it more than the latter, yeah. The production really works in their favour, especially in the heavier parts where theres more of a crunch. Beggar's Bowl is a brilliant track, one of my favourites of the year. I need to get more Polvo action!

I like Today's Active Lifestyles and Celebrate the New Dark Age EP best out of their catalog. I like Exploded Drawing too but it's pretty long so it doesn't feel as solid as the others. It's technically a double LP but all fits on one CD, next time I play it I might split it up in two parts. Cor-Crane Secret is good also, but I never got into Shapes (so I never checked out the accompanying EP This Eclipse).

In Prism is a nice return to their pre-Shapes sound but considerably more laid back. I like it so far. I'm planning to see them next month.

I love Today's Active Lifestyles and Celebrate the New Dark Age. Polvo is such a great band, but I am rarely in the mood to listen to them. Every time I listen to them I wonder why I don't listen to them more. I have had Cor-Crane Secret and In Prism on my computer for awhile, but have yet to listen to them.

Polvo show is tomorrow! I still can't decide if I should go or not. I hate weekday shows, always so tired at work the next day.

The new Polvo album is good but I feel it ends on a weak note.
