i ask because i’m uploading a copy of monster right now, ‘found it in a pile somehwhere. i remember liking certain tracks, especially the one with the thurston appearance. i know some really dig automatic for the people, but that one was a little too croon-y for me. and the rest of the stuff i really dunno well enough to say.
i hope monster sounds good. i had a conversation ’bout ’em a while back with cassidy and he mentioned having the impression that rem were major-label, faux indie plastique, which is of course fallacious and made me worry that the athens boys will be mis-remembered. we’d never have a pavement or a gbv, par example – let alone a latter-day husker du – without a reckoning. anyway i wonder what your opinions are.
