Ra Ra, Blah, Blah, Blah

Via the always entertaining About Today comes the question regarding Ra Ra Riot as the new Arcade Fire, Annuals, et al. Hell, the blogosphere is all ra ra ra about ra ra riot, but honestly, I just don’t get it. Then again, I never really got into The Annuals despite the dozens of recommendations from friends and blogs. I wasn’t really a big fan of the Arcade Fire’s follow up either, so perhaps it’s me that has the problem with this sort of “sound.” Derivative and dull, in my opinion. Meh.

    I’m with you on all counts here, buddy. Thanks for the Foals recommendation. First listen, good, second listen, listen again, third listen, holy shit.
