The Manhattan Love Suicides

It's been a long week and I'm tired as hell, so I'm gonna keep this short, mainly because I don't know much about The Manhattan Love Suicides. Their album was just released on Magic Marker Records. I ordered a copy from Darla.com on the strength of the tunes on their myspace page, which I had first heard this past summer. They kinda remind me of The Primitives or The Darling Buds, except with more fuzzy guitars. Fuzzy guitars are a good thing, trust me.

Ooh, I didn't know you were familiar with the Primitives and the Darling Buds! Anyway, this Manhattan Love Suicides is just ok. In theory, I should really like them, as they contain many elements of my favorite kinds of music, but they don't really rise above that level of mediocrity for me. :o(

I'm with you. I like them, but I don't love them.

I can't believe you're surprised that I like the Primitives and the Darling Buds. Breakin' my heart, missy.

Even I knew that!

Having listened to this track I'm thinking "Manhattan Love Suicides. Meh." There are so many bands like them around... I went to see the Long Blondes a while back and it was the same sort of stuff but with better choruses.

No originality any more!
