    I don't know why but the line "Neither wooden nor stone" just sticks. It's so catchy

    My friend asked me to make a dubstep remix of a La Dispute song for their birthday. I decided I'm going to mix Such Small hands and turn it into Such Deep Bass

    I prefer St Paul Missionary Baptist Church Blues, also the entire second half of the album is overall better than the first half IMO.

    Everyone says that, I see it like this, both halves are equally good but I find it hard to compare the two halves of the album on either side of the huuuugggee tone shift that is "a Poem".

    Also, best song on the album
    Feel free to disagree ;)

    Its like a tie between this and a Broken Jar for me, a Broken Jar just doesn't get nearly enough love imo.

    a Broken Jar has the best lyrics on the album, and I just love the instrumentation along with the acoustic guitar and its just the perfect transition into the final "act" of the album. Speaking of which:
    Another one of my favorites, and another one that doesn't get nearly enough love.

    I sort of feel like the entire album was sort of like a story book or a diary and a Broken Jar was a moment where it takes you out of the story for a moment and sort of gives the story's "author" feelings.

    I like all the the songs on the album but my least favorite has to be The Most Beautiful Bitter Fruit

    Yea I've probably thought way too much about the album, but the way I see it its sort of arranged in acts, each song beginning with "a..." is an intro to a new act (a Departure, a Letter, a Poem, a Broken Jar). The last 3 songs are sort of the epilogue where he ties the whole thing together.

    Edited:

    all those songs are brilliant and are on the second half
    Brilliant songs in the first half:
    And the aforementioned Safer in the Forest.

    Generally I think both halves are equally good although I can definitely see why someone would like the second half more.

    Edited:

    I think nearly every song on Wildlife has been posted on this page

    The entire album is fantastic, and thats the purpose of the songs a Departure, a Letter, a Poem and a Broken Jar. The album is a view on life and the human condition told through stories the author hears, just like any autobiography or novel of the sort, theres authors notes. These 4 songs act as authors notes that put everything in perspective. Its really one of the most brilliant concept albums I've ever heard in that you don't need to listen to it from beginning to end for it to still resonate with you.

    Thats cool, its not for everyone. If you really want to appreciate the band but dont like the vocal style, just read the lyrics. It reads like poetry.

    Also, I'm sending a letter to my La Dispute OBSESSED friend.

    I think I'm gonna put this on the envelope:





    Edited:


    He says The Mountain Goats is his favorite band. That just made me love La Dispute a little bit more.

    This is why I'm so surprised that so many people here like La Dispute.
    I love their kind of vocals, all kinds of screaming/harsh vocals really, but I didn't expect so many other people here to enjoy it.

    Yea there's just as many people around who hate them though, it seems like you either love them or hate them right away.

    I don't love or hate them, I just think they're alright. I haven't listened to it enough to really form much of an opinion

    Well I guess there's that too, I just mean most people form an opinion on them right away and then stick with that opinion.

    90s/early 2000's screamo is the fucking shit man

    I'd make a dump but effort~ maybe later cos there's tons of great bands. la dispute are pretty different but these bands were probably quite an influence and have the same kind of emotion and all that

    Edited:

    lol k doin a dump

    Pg.99 (Wait for dat bit at about 1:30 onwards fuckin great)
    City Of Caterpillar
    Orchid
    Raein
    Circle Takes The Square
    I Would Set Myself On Fire For You

    God I love early 2000s screamo, I started getting into it about the same time I first heard La Dispute. I Would Set Myself on Fire for You is probably one of my favorites along with Circle Takes the Square and pg.99 of course.

    Edited:

    Some good newer stuff too

    I love FBTMOF, speaking of which, this song reminds me a lot of Such Small Hands (except heavier and almost industrial sounding), I actually commented that on this youtube video a couple months ago:

    Edited:

    I actually tried to make a mashup of this song, Such Small Hands, and Nobody Not Even The Rain but I never got it to work right. I did find out that if you sync up Such Small Hands and Nobody Not Even The Rain perfectly it sounds pretty amazing.

    Edited:

    Remade it quickly, sounds like a wall of sound but its pretty nice.

    The Blood Brothers is one of the best post-hardcore bands ever, so you really should. Young Machetes is a great album.
