Default tapes 'n tapes

well both pitchfork and insound are raving about this band, i only got two songs so i can't really decide yet, i would've loved to have been able to download the entire album, but as usual, when ever you want to download something just a tad obscure, you can't...

tapes 'n tapes - insistor
tapes 'n tapes - cowbell
tapes 'n tapes - omaha

official site www.tapesntapes.com

anyone heard yet?

edit: well after 3 tracks, i say pitchfork is ,as always ,full of shit...but someone might still like it...

yeah they usually are full of ****. Their so pretentious and condecending with their reviews, which is funny because music critics that arent from successful bands are usually just lousy struggling musicians.

I first heard the album when all the blogs were hyping the shit out of them, and I wasn't all that impressed. Not that bad, but nothing to write home about.

I also got suckered into this band by those stinkin interneters. Nothing to dislike here, but something your collection could easily do without.

If someone makes a Band of Horses thread, just copy and paste this post for me.

I thought Cowbell was pretty good. But they don't sound like anything special to me.

man you guys are harsh! i really like tapes 'n tapes. most of their songs are different from one another in style. so you get a nice blend of several different genres. it's really grown on me.
i have yet to hear band of horses, i hear they sound like my morning jacket sorda. have any of you heard of my sexual dad from la?

i'm not harsh.. i just listen to A LOT of music and give credit where credit is due! I also do not have some hidden agenda like pitchfork has.... I simply like and play good music on my station. Some people agree, some don't. Simple!

i listen to A LOT of music myself - & i've definitely written some bands off just because they were all the rage. you know, media overkill.
what are some of the bands that you do like?
