Hey, Carrigan dudes, what’s up? I just wanted to say a couple words. First, that whole thing about young men never dying, um…they do. And secondly, you guys came pretty damn close to making an awesomely dense album full of droning, punchy synth, delicate guitar work, driving beats and haunting vocals. I mean, some of this shit sounds like Radiohead, and I don’t mean that in “you dudes totally ripped off Radiohead!” kind of way -- I mean it in a you know how to mix electronics, guitar, excellent rhythm and grandiose vocals kind of way. But see, here’s the thing, there is a fine line between well-crafted indie rock, and we’ve-got-a-big-budget rock and a lot of times you dudes really swing towards the latter.
