Postal Service Emo Weenies

Ever heard of an act called 'The Notwist?'

My girlfriend just turned me on to them recently. If you dig the vaguely minimalist, poppy, melancholy strains of the the postal service, I bet you'll dig this too.

So maybe I happened to be listening to the postal service when I read this, but I'm not emo!

No, they are not hero's like the crazy pioneer in margaret atwood's stupid poem about being a mentalcase farmer guy. That guy was a hero. And nuts.

Notwist = A+++++
Postal Service = AAA+++++

If you're a P.S. fan you should also enjoy Deathcab for Cutie seeing as they share a creative member.

Notwist, eh? this is the third time this week that I have been told to check them out.... I think I gotta head to Zulu and see what the fuss is all about :-)

oh yeah, I am a huge Postal Service fan and not an "emo weenie" by the way :-) but I can see how that could hold true with some poeple :-)

Have you guys heard of Soviet? if so, what do you think of them?

/\ they only have 1... "Give Up"... amazing from start to finish. I this ain't no Ladytron (man, I was so disappointed when I heard their albums.. only 1 at most 2 good songs, and the rest allll sound the same :(

Oh yeah, I just read up on Notwist ... I HAD NO IDEA Martin Gretschmann is a part of it! That man is a genius! I love his other project "Console".... HUGE fan of Console right now. Dr. Jones dropped this bomb track off their new album last wednesday and we all went off! Which one of their albums should i start with, if I am into Postal Service/Console?

:-)

neutral milk hotel is all right.
i prefer 'on avery island' over 'in the aeroplane over the sea'.
but there's just something about the singers voice (whose name, i do not know) that bugs me a bit.

Discovered them courtesy one of my Duncan computer g33k friends.... Them and Razed In Black (Industrial)... Lofi rock, similar to TMBG with similarly obscure lyrics.... Less playful though.
