charmer - kings of leon

such an awesome song

i was pretty surprised when i first heard it, it's almost pixies sounding, but somehow heavier/groovier? and i thought kings of leon are just like another one of those early 00's garagey bands, like another "the" band, if you know what i mean

but this is fucking cool

what do you guys think

'Almost' Pixies sounding? Dude, it's virtually a rip-off - right down to imitating Frank Black's vocals.

haha, that must be why I like it.

I think its cool how both charmer and the other tele song are driven by the bass. I wish the rest of the songs were the same, cause its really fucking awesome.

I don't like their new album at all. First one was great, second good, third smells.

Yeah! I dig it, too, and I'm no fan of Kings of Leon. He needs to accidentally scream 'DEBASER!' at some point to seal the deal, though.

saw these guys last month and they were fucking excellent!
played a good mix of all albums. Quite haunting and atmospheric at times

their latest album is quality. alot heavier and darker then the last one.
I think the dudes vocal style is either love it or hate it.

sounding like the pixies is a good thing, even if its deliberate and cynical

Awful, awful, awful. the pigtail-being-pulled-scream and the pretentious 'oh no' at the end of every line being the stand-out shit bits.

I hate Kings of Leon.

are you guys hating on the squeals and shit because they're pixies ripoffs, or you just hate them anyway, and probably hate the pixies

I think what Logans getting at is that good song writing wins over technicality always. EG any tech death band

oh i totally agree. I just hear alot of people use that as a reason to not like a band.

being technical doesnt mean anything if your music sounds like poo's.

overall kings of leon are a pretty good band
