Can't wait for the new album, Fluorescent Black, due out October 13 (it was September 9 initially but I just checked and it appears to have changed ). I heard a new track on ninjatune.net a while back and it was fantastic.

Oh look you can hear the track at Pitchfork -> link



Why is Antipop hyphenated on the new cover? I hope that's not how it'll show up in the CDDB, creating a different artist entry in last.fm.

That's awesome.. I had no idea they were coming out with a new album.

Thoughts on the new album, anyone? I've played it twice so far, I like it overall but have no concrete opinion yet.

I pretty much feel the same way, only picked it up a few days ago. The music is way more electronic based, but from what I've listened to so far the emceeing is stronger than ever. I really like it.. but I'm still not sure how it rates compared to Arrhythmia.. sounds more like Beans' solo album than anything Antipop have done.
I do know the first few seconds of the album completely threw me off.. I was wondering if I put in the right CD for a second.

Totally! That was awesome.

I don't know that I feel this one is more electronic than their others...do you mean less hip-hop (regarding the music of course)? Yeah I'll just have to revisit the older stuff and maybe then I'll notice. One thing is that I feel the beats and intricacies of the music could stand out more...it almost seems lost behind the vocals at times. Nothing "pops" out like I wish it would, and like I remember on Arrhythmia, but I'll just have to listen to that one again to be sure. I'm just thinking of the song "Ping Pong" which is really fun musically.

Actually, Ping Pong was exactly the song I had in mind while I wrote that, haha. I s'pose what I'm getting at is this album doesn't really branch out quite as much as Arrhythmia does, calling it more electronic based might be a stretch but they've definitely changed their sound a bit since the last album.. I agree with you on the vocals though.. maybe a little too strong.

...is that even possible...? Maybe when you guys have some concrete opinions on it (i.e. a number out of 10 ) i will look into it. Never managed to get my head around Arrythmia... too much sickness is, erm, bad for your health

Not sure which album I like better between Arrhythmia and Shopping Carts Crashing. I liked Tragic Epilogue and Fluorescent Black, but those two are the standout albums.

There's no video on youtube for it but check out the song Tilt off Shopping Carts Crashing. One of the best beats I've heard.

I'm all about Ping Pong (The Return), Real is Surreal, Human Shield, Ghost Lawns, Lazarus Pit, Verses, Mechanic Robot, Timeless Void, Heatrays, and a few others. They have a lot of sold tracks, honestly. Ping Pong tops them all, though, in my opinion.
