anyone else get a paul mccartney vibe from the new one? maybe it's the alto. there's a stately tin pan swing to it that reminds me of ram

Ram is a good call actually. there's definitely a whimsy/swing to the record.

thought that was a pretty great review, tranche aside. did not know the story behind the title or "Born with the Wrong Day"

also, her show on Monday was amazing. the solo she ripped at the end of "What's Not Mine" is still ringing in my head

listening to crab day again after a few months, this is a mindblowing work of art that I'll still enjoy fourty years from now if there's still music on earth

I haven't listened to it in a while. I found it kind of disappointing for some reason. Cyrk and Cyrk II are my favorites by Cate. I like her ballads. This one doesn't have any if I remember correctly. I guess I'll give it another listen.

I listened to Crab Day yesterday. I enjoyed it a lot. "Find Me" is my fav.

saw her last night with Tim Presley. her drummer had some issues at the boarder, so Tim filled in on drums "Moe Tucker style" (Cate's words), which was pretty cool.
lots of stuff of Crab Day. some solo stuff on keyboard that i wasn't as familiar with and didn't seem to play as well to a bar audience.
"no god" slayed though, as did the closing "what's not mine," which i had been hoping they'd play. such a great song. i could listen to the chorus piano part for hours.

I was at this show too and I was kind of surprised by the number of people walking out during Cate's set. I enjoyed the show and thought Tim Presley did a really great job on drums given he was put on the spot.

No Duke. The show was pretty light on Mug Museum stuff which was a bummer.

yea. have you listened to the Rock Pool EP thing - was that where some of those solo keyboard pieces were from?

(we should meet up or something sometime!)

Haven't heard the Rock Pool stuff yet...

We've probably crossed paths many times at shows. I'm always in a big green army jacket and I've been told I look like Gay Baruchel. Send me a message next time you're seeing something, I'll probably be there!

the double-ish bill with tim is so good. i don't like his solo stuff nearly as much as white fence but it built so methodically over the course of the set. absolutely loved the "chairs in the dark" encore as well

that's how i felt about the set, too. was pretty indifferent to it at the start - but by the end i was rocking out. rly impressed at the drummer playing a sustained motorik guitar riff while keeping time with the hi-hat on the final song.

http://www.brooklynvegan.com/cate-le-bon-announces-new-lp-tour-listen-to-daylight-matters/
Cate Le Bon will release new album Reward on May 24 via Mexican Summer. “People hear the word ‘reward’ and they think that it’s a positive word” says Le Bon, “and to me it’s quite a sinister word in that it depends on the relationship between the giver and the receiver. I feel like it’s really indicative of the times we’re living in where words are used as slogans, and everything is slowly losing its meaning.” She worked with frequent collaborators Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), H.Hawkline and co-producer Samur Khouja, and Reward was originally conceived as a spare piano record but grew beyond that. You can still hear those beginnings in lovely first single “Daylight Matters” — listen below.
